Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is working with the first-team offense Tuesday.
Let the overreaction begin. Yes, he's working with the first-team Tuesday. He's done it before and will do so again. The Browns figure that he will spend some time under center this season, so working with the first team is a way to help his development. It does not mean that he will be starting in Week 1. It does not mean he will be starting in Week 6. We just don't know right now. What we do know is that Brian Hoyer will be under center as the team's starting quarterback to open the season. Head coach Mike Pettine has said that already. All of you feeding off this Manziel hype are in for a world of disappointment and a last place finish in your fantasy football leagues.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Eduardo Rodriguez will start Thursday in Texas for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox were considering bringing Rodriguez up in late April when Wade Miley was struggling but now they may consider him a potential replacement for the nightmare that is Joe Kelly. He'll start Thursday to stay on his regular throwing schedule and this may only be a spot start/audition, but keep an eye on him especially if there's a chance he joins the rotation.

Wil Myers (wrist) is improving but not close to returning.
It's not so much that he isn't close to returning, it's that the Padres are being very cautious with him and have not set a timetable for him to start swinging a bat. Once he does start, it might not be too long before he lands on a rehab assignment. The team is hoping for an early-to-mid June return, but we'll just have to wait and see. Analysis: Howard Bender
