Kris Bryant is not in the lineup today for the Cubs and remains day to day. Here is manager Joe Maddon giving an update on the MVP.

You can consider the A's decision to re-unite with former Athletic and current Yankees discard Chris Carter (and send him to Triple-A Nashville) as a preliminary to their getting a Yonder Alonso trade done by the deadline. Despite the Yankees connection, quite KC A's-era contemptible.

The Yankees won the first game of their series with the Mariners as Aaron Judge continues to get back on track.

Luis Severino told me right after the All-Star Break that he hadn't realized how much he welcomed the rest; pitching like a true ace his last two outings. He's allowed only 1ER over 14 innings vs Red Sox and Mariners, where he had to face off against none other than Chris Sale and Félix Hernández.

For the record: Yonder Alonso's agent, Dan Lozano, has not discussed a possible extension for the first baseman with the Athletics.
