Matt Carpenter is dealing with pain in his right ring finger that affects his hitting. The knob of the bat irritates the finger when he swings. Carpenter is not playing tonight vs. the Cincinnati Reds.

Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler is getting his right side checked out some more after moving gingerly in his last game. He missed time recently due to the injury. The Cubs should know more after tonight's game or tomorrow.

Joe Maddon indicated he would use his top relievers this week mainly when Kyle Hendricks, Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta pitch as they have personal milestones like the Cy Young award at stake. Hendricks starts tonight vs. Pittsburgh.

Authorities also identified the other victims in the crash as Eduardo Rivero, 25, and Emilio Jesus Macias, 27, both of Miami-Dade County.

The perks of clinching early? You can rest your stars. And that's exactly what Nats skipper Dusty Baker is doing. A day after hurting his thumb while sliding, Bryce Harper, who was slated for X-rays today, is out of the lineup. Ditto for Daniel Murphy, who's nursing a strained buttocks - or as it's called in lay terms...a bum bum.

UPDATE: Authorities said Monday that the boat involved in the accident that killed @Marlins pitcher José Fernández was registered to him.

I asked Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria if he's put thought into retiring Jose Fernandez's No. 16. "Yes, I've put thought into it," Loria responded. "Nobody else is wearing that number. I can tell you that."
