Orlando Scandrick has been suspended the first four games of the season.
Scandrick will have to watch the Cowboys first four games of the season form home after the league suspended him for four games for a drug violation. After allegedly taking something in Mexico while on vacation, the Cowboys defender then tested positive for a banned substance. Expect Morris Claiborne to start in his absence. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
