The Chicago Bears agreed to terms with former New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes, a team source told Adam Schefter.
Who knows what Holmes still has left in the tank. Who knows if it was really the injuries that got the better of him or if he actually quit on the Jets. Whatever the case may be, it can't hurt for the Bears to kick the tires on him and see if they can add another solid receiving threat. His presence wouldn't change the fact that Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery are still the leaders of this passing attack.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Tanner Roark is expected to be on a limit of around 70 pitches Monday.
Monday's start will be the first of the season for the 15-game winner from last year. Roark is taking the spot of Doug Fister in the rotation as Fister recovers from an ailing forearm. The pitch limit will is only because he has not been lengthened into a starter yet this year. Normally an efficient pitcher, the Cubs will test him as they average 4.0 pitches per plate appearance this year. Analysis: Matt Selz
Sean Doolittle is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday.
The Athletics were thrilled to see the performance of Doolittle in his last rehab outing on Friday. Doolittle was reevaluated on Monday and was given clearance to be activated from the disabled list on Tuesday. Bob Melvin said they would work him back into the fold slowly and not put him right back into high pressure situations. The return of Doolittle hurts the fantasy value of Tyler Clippard.
