Free-agent kicker Shaun Suisham has decided to retire.

At 34 years of age, Suisham is going to hang up the cleats. He tore his ACL and missed all of last season, but after being released a few days ago after a failed physical, Suisham decided this was the time to retire. He ends his career going 211-for-274 on field goal attempts, scoring 907 career points. Best of luck in retirement! Enjoy it.

Free-agent corner Antrel Rolle told reporters that he is still waiting for the right situation to come along before he signs with any team this offseason.

Rolle likely wants to latch on with a team that has the ability to contend. Rolle is 33 years old and given his position and professional experience, he doesn't likely have many more years in that body. He only appeared in seven games last season, but prior to that, he appeared in at least 15 games every year dating back to 2006.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Daniel Skuta was arrested on June 19th and charged with misdemeanor battery. His attorney is denying the claims and the Jaguars have released a statement that they are still gathering information before making any decisions regarding his status.

Skuta was arrested for battery and the woman claimed that Skuta shoved her head against a glass window after she wouldn't give him her phone number. Skuta's lawyer continues to say that the woman is lying and the Jacksonville linebacker continues to say that he didn't hit her, but she hit him. Jacksonville will continue to investigate before making a decision.

Angels pitcher's Andrew Heaney and Garrett Richards had ultrasounds done on their injured elbows on Monday and manager Mike Scioscia said the results were encouraging and that they would be re-evaluated in six weeks.

Encouraging results are good and all, but fact of the matter is that neither of these two guys will be impacting your teams for at least a month and a half. If we're being super optimistic here, these guys will be pitching for the Angels in early to mid August. However, you're looking towards the backend of August for either of these two to return.

Logan Verrett is the front runner to replace Steven Matz in the rotation should he be forced to miss his start on Wednesday.

Verrett has appeared in 20 games for the Mets so far this season and has maintained a 4.14 ERA. Solid enough for sure to serve in a spot start role for the next couple of games if needed.

Cardinals plan on activating catcher Brayan Pena from the disabled list prior to Tuesday's game.

This is great news for the Cards, as the addition of Pena will solidify the catcher spot going forward. He will serve as a formidable backup to Yadier Molina but not for fantasy owners.

Sergio Romo (elbow) is set to make another rehab appearance on Wednesday.

He hasn't looked great in his rehab stint so far, but hopefully that's just a sign of him shaking off the cobwebs. Expect Romo to be sharper in his Wednesday appearance. If he's not, then he may not be fully healthy.

Anthony Davis who said he plans to play this season has yet to file for reinstatement.

A wise athlete once said that once you begin to think about retirement, you must retire. The fact that Davis already made the decision to quit the sport once doesn't bode well for his future as an NFL player. The love for the game just doesn't seem to be at the level needed in order to compete at the highest form.

Scott Feldman will be the Astros starting pitcher on Tuesday.

Feldman will be taking the place of Lance McCullers for a spot start on Tuesday, as McCullers is dealing with a blister on his pitching hand. Feldman is sporting a solid 3.07 ERA on the season in 20 appearances.

Astros will skip Lance McCullers (blister) start on Tuesday.

It always makes pitchers sound like wusses, but trying to throw effectively hard and accurately with a blister is very difficult. Scott Feldman will start in his place on Tuesday.
