Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has told Mike Matheny that Clayton Kershaw can throw two innings at the All-Star game.
Kershaw is fresh off a 41 2/3 scoreless inning streak that was snapped by a Chase Headley solo homer Thursday night. He'll be on regular rest for the All-Star game which Mattingly likely sees as a tune-up before the second half. Kershaw is neck-and-neck with Adam Wainwright at the half for Cy-Young honors. ANALYST:
Rajai Davis said Sunday evening that he doesn't believe his groin injury is serious.
Davis pulled up limp on a single during Sunday's game after having a ridiculous series against the Indians. He stole three bases on Saturday and scored three runs in both games and fantasy owners jumped at the chance to add Davis. However, a problem to the leg area is a major concern for a speed guy like the center-fielder. Don't be surprised to see the Tigers play it safe for a bit and have Anthony Gose fill in for Davis until he is healthy. Analysis: Rob Trayah
Redskins are likely to pick up Robert Griffin III's option for 2016.
The true answer is "They better pick it up". The deal to pick up Griffin cost the Redskins a fortune so it shouldn't be that big of a surprise, even with the troubles he has had, that Washington is picking up the option for next year. He will have another year under Jay Gruden and his system before heading into 2016 so this might be a trade value season for RG3. Analysis: Rob Trayah
