UPDATES & NEWS
Mat Latos' recent struggles against the Brewers continued on Monday as he gave up five runs, four earned, and eight hits while striking out three over seven innings of work.
Latos looks like a completely different pitcher than in years past. It's unknown whether or not he's still returning to form after dealing with a surgically repaired knee. What is known is that he's striking out just 5.12 batters per-nine, a well below-average clip. He's also giving up more fly-balls than ever, which is a recipe for disaster given his home park. He's a borderline Top-40 starter going forward. ANALYST:
Ray McDonald has been cleared by NFL in one of two cases.
Apparently there was not sufficient evidence to charge McDonald for the Domestic Violence charge that's been lingering over him since last season. The other charge is a sexual assault charge, which is still being investigated. It's unclear whether or not McDonald will actually miss any time during the upcoming season. Analysis: Spencer Silva
