Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) will throw another simulated game on Thursday.
Step by step. Inch by inch. Tanaka eases closer and closer to attempting a return. The Yankees still aren't setting a timetable for his first trip back to the mound for them, so we'll just have to continue tracking the progress and wait. He reported no issues after his Sunday session and Thursday will be of the same variety, throwing to live hitters. Without knowing when he could be back, we'll assume something in the mid-September range for a return.ANALYST: Howard Bender
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
