UPDATES & NEWS
Matt Prater will be suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violation of the league's substance abuse policy.
This is an alcohol-related suspension. Prater has been in the league's substance abuse program since a 2011 DUI arrest and obviously, he recently fell off the wagon. He has been one of the best kickers in the league over the past few seasons and will be eligible to return on October 12. The Broncos will likely look outside the organization to replace him for the first four games.ANALYST: David Kerr
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
