Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-4 with a home run, double and two RBI in the Marlins loss to the Mets on Tuesday. 

The two RBI night pushed Stanton over the 100 RBI mark for the first time in his career. For the season, he's slashing an incredible .293/.401/.561 with 35 big flies, the most in the majors. He's among the MLB's best players and should be the frontrunner in the NL-MVP race. ANALYST:

Jimmy Mundine has been released by the Patriots on Monday.

Mundine was a rookie out of Kansas who had a shot at the practice squad, but ended up missing out on the first cut of roster spots. He will seek employment elsewhere in the NFL. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jeff Heuermen has been placed on season ending injured reserve.

Heuermen was a rookie tight end of out of Ohio State who suffered a torn ACL back in May. He will miss his rookie season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Zac Dysert has been released by the Broncos on Monday.

Dysert was in an uphill battle for a position on the team, but now will have to seek a new job in the NFL. With Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler still at the helm, Dysert wasn't going to get looks any time soon. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Eagles Trey Burton is seeing more time on offense so far this year.

Burton has been getting added looks with Zach Ertz still hurt. He is a special teams guru, but adding tight-end to the repertoire is making him a much more attractive roster pick. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Buccaneers rookie Donovan Smith was seen wearing a protective boot at practice on Monday.

The second-round pick is predicted to be immediate starter at left tackle, but if he remains unhealthy, Tampa Bay will need to look in the free-agent market for added depth after suffering a rash of injuries on the O-line this preseason. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Broncos have released Ross Madison on Monday.

Madison has signed a future's contract with Denver last offseason, but now will have to find some new work. He still has yet to see action in the NFL. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Broncos have traded Chris Clark to the Texans for a 7th round pick in 2016.

Clark moves from Denver over to Houston to make room for Michael Schofield, a second round pick out of Michigan. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Josh Scobee has been traded to the Steelers.

Scobee leaves the only place he's known in Jacksonville has Pittsburgh's run of bad luck with kickers continued with Garrett Heartley. Scobee is a veteran who will bring stability to the kicking position in Pittsburgh. Analysis: Rob Trayah

The Browns have released Moses Fokou on Monday.

Fokou was signed by the Browns from New Orleans in the offseason after he made just two tackles last season. he will be in search of another team as cuts are being made league wide. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Kyle Brindza has been traded to the Buccaneers in the Tim Wright trade.

Brindza did well in preseason, but with Matt Prater on the roster, he added some trade value which the Lions used to acquire Wright. He will battle Connor Barth, who was recently signed after being cut from Denver. Analysis: Rob Trayah

The Bills have released Fred Jackson.

In a somewhat shocker, the veteran was let go after a 141 carries and 525 yards with two touchdowns last season. He also has 66 receptions making him a valuable fantasy option in PPR leagues. He is going to be an extremely popular person as he continues to outplay his age and make an impact on offense. Analysis: Rob Trayah

The Bills have Released Terren Jones.

Jones has been with the Titans and Falcons as well and has seen game action just once while with Tennessee. Analysis: Rob Trayah

The Yankees have put in a waiver claim for David Robertson.The teams can try and work on a trade.

Robertson left the Yankees in the offseason for a bigger contract in Chicago, but it appears the New York wants him back. They still have time to work on a deal to bring back the veteran and make the back-end of their bullpen nearly untouchable. Analysis: Rob Trayah
