With Reggie Wayne rehabbing, Hakeem Nicks has seen plenty of reps in trying to build timing with Andrew Luck. Safe to say Nicks has already turned some heads through a few months of the offseason.
There is no doubt that Nicks has the talent, it is clearly a matter of heart with him. It is a good sign that he is working so well with Andrew Luck and if he becomes a favorite of the prized quarterback, he could be in for a big season. This is a situation worth monitoring as we head into August.ANALYST: David Kerr
Angels recalled RHP Cam Bedrosian from Triple-A Salt Lake.
Mike Morin has been mediocre (putting it nicely) working in middle-relief for the Angels this season, posting a 6.00 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and a 13/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 appearances. Relief Pitcher Cam Bedrosian has been recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake, where he has posted a 3.15 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 27/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 innings pitched, to take Morin's spot in the bullpen.

Wilson Ramos is not in the Nationals starting lineup on Sunday.
This appears to be a routine day off for the Nationals starting Catcher (nothing out of the ordinary in a Sunday afternoon game), but the timing may provide Ramos an opportunity to break out of the mini-slump that he's in. After stringing together a 19-game hit-streak, Ramos has gone 0-for-11 in his last three games. Jose Lobaton, who is 1-for-8 in his career against opposing starting pitcher Aaron Harang, will get the start in Ramos' absence. Analysis: Brad Costilo
