Coach Mike Pettine indicated Monday that the Browns expect to name their starting quarterback by the team's third preseason game. It's definitely still up in the air," Pettine said.
Let the games begin in Cleveland! The competition officially begins this week between Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer. Most of the local beat reporters are convinced that Hoyer will hold off Manziel at least through training camp, but Johnny Football brings the most to the table. The question will be if Manziel can keep his head on straight and wow everyone like he did in college.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Kendrys Morales went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the Royals 7-1 win over the Twins on Monday.
Morales is raking to start the season, hitting .358 with 12 runs, two home runs and nine RBI as the Royals everyday DH and cleanup hitter. 2014 was a lost year for Morales as he struggled to find a role with the Mariners and Twins but he showed capable of being a productive player over the two seasons prior where he hits a combined 45 home runs over the two years. Morales was one of the more promising offensive players in the league before a devastating ankle injury nearly ended his career in 2010 but if his hot start is any indication of things to come those who took a chance on Kendrys could be in for a solid season.
