Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy was found guilty of assault on his girlfriend and making threats to her. He was sentenced to 18-months probation, but will appeal the ruling.
Can't these guys just stay out of trouble? Domestic violence should result in more than just probation, but high-priced lawyers often work wonders. Hardy will be facing a suspension, so the appeals process is being done to delay that.ANALYST: David Kerr
Trevor Cahill has secured the final spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation.
With this news, it is confirmed that Daniel Hudson will start the season out of the team's bullpen. Cahill really struggled last season, but the team believes his revamped mechanics will equate to better success this season. In 17 starts and 14 relief appearances last year, he compiled a rough 5.61 ERA. Starters in Arizona will likely be back-end starters in many fantasy rotations this season. Analysis: Colby Conway
