49ers do not know the verdict of potential NFL discipline for DE Aldon Smith, but they're bracing themselves for a suspension in the range of 6-to-8 games.
As a repeat offender, Smith is certainly going to miss time in 2014 due to suspension, we just do't know how long he will be out. Despite the looking suspension, Smith should be drafted in all IDP leagues because when he is on the field, he is one of the most talented defensive ends in the game. Expect a verdict within the next couple weeks. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Manager John Farrell has named Edward Mujica the closer to start the season.
This is a strange decision. Sure, Uehara struggled down the stretch last year, but his final numbers for 2014 were still great. He struck out more than 30 percent of batters faced and walked virtually no one. Mujica, on the other hand, has had a below average strikeout rate for three years running. Don't pay anything of consequence for Mujica, and Uehara is a guy to target if you have deep enough roster settings to hold on to him for a bit. Analysis: Brett Talley
Rougned Odor left Sunday's game with a bruised left shin.
Thankfully, this doesn't sound like anything to be concerned about. Odor had a very respectable debut last year as 20-year old, hitting .259 with nine home runs in just over 400 plate appearances. With a full season of work, he could approach 15 home runs, and his batting average could improve given how frequently he made contact last year. The future is bright for Odor. Analysis: Brett Talley
