UPDATES & NEWS
Craig Kimbrel blew the save on Thursday allowing one run on one hit with two strikeouts in the loss to the Marlins.
Kimbrel blew his fifth save in 35 opportunities Thursday as he fell to 0-2 on the year as he also took the loss. It was his third blown save since June 7th and while his overall stats are stellar there is a chance he could be trending in dangerous waters as his save percentage this season is in the bottom half among current NL closers...something to keep in mind come next draft season or if you are in a dynasty league and are out of contention yet own Kimbrel.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Johnny Manziel reported for the first day of voluntary workouts Monday.
Manziel has completed his rehab program and is looking to be the team's starting quarterback in 2015. There has been speculation about the Browns drafting a quarterback in this draft, but we will have to wait and see. Their selections in the draft will give us a glimpse of what the organization thinks about Manziel, as well as how they feel about him as their starting quarterback. The draft will be a big indicator to us, and to Johnny Football, about his status in Cleveland. Analysis: Colby Conway
Joe Nathan (elbow) threw a full bullpen session Monday.
Nathan was able to throw off a mound on Saturday, but today was his first full bullpen session since suffering the elbow injury. Joakim Soria has been dynamite as the team's closer, and it is quite possible that he returns from the DL as the team's set-up man, not the closer. This is worth monitoring, especially if you own Nathan or Soria. Analysis: Colby Conway
