Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly has told reporters he would be open to trade offers for QB Mark Sanchez, presumably to let Sanchez have a chance at the No. 1 job with another team.
Sanchez is currently listed as the Eagles No. 2 quarterback behind Nick Foles, but the team feels confident enough to use Matt Barkley as the backup if they are willing to find a suitor for the former Jets starter. Even if he is dealt before the start of the regular season he is a mediocre signal caller at best and an even worse fantasy option while sitting on a career 55 percent completion percentage.

Roberto Osuna (back) is available out of the bullpen Monday.
Osuna was complaining about some lower back pain after coming on in relief Sunday, but says he will be available if needed. Osuna has been outstanding this year and could be the solution to the Blue Jays' closer issue. He owns a 2.02 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 35 2/3 innings and is in the top 30 of the majors in strikeout rate with a 43:10 K/BB ratio. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
Dodgers transfer LHP Paco Rodriguez to the 60-day disabled list.
This move allows the Dodgers to bring up Eric Surkamp for tonight's bullpen game. Rodriguez, who last pitched for the Dodgers on May 29, will be out at least 8-10 weeks until September after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to remove bone spurs in his left elbow. He pitched four scoreless innings in a recent rehab assignment but suffered a setback and will now be sidelined even longer than expected. He has a 2.61 ERA in 10 1/3 innings. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
