UPDATES & NEWS
Andrew McCutchen went 2-for-5 with a home run, double, one RBI and two runs scored in the Pirates 5-4 loss to the Cardinals on Monday.
Cutch hit a 454-foot missile today against the Cardinals and showed that even with a rib ailment, he can still produce at an elite level. While he still looks like that rib is bothering him, he is going to continue to try to play through it. He is still producing and owners must start him every time the Buccos play. Dont expect him to steal bases very often the rest of the season. Cutch is a fantasy stud who will be a top pick in drafts next year.ANALYST: Colby Conway
Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
