    The trade deadline is a perfect time for playoff teams to fill gaps in their roster - and out in Queens, the New York Mets could be getting an upgrade behind the plate. While the Mets have two very capable catchers in Tomas Nido and James McCann, a specific aspect in their game has been slow - offense. Both Nido and McCann are both very good defensive catchers, but their hitting has aggressively slumped this year.  With Nido slashing at a .218 batting average and an OPS of .517, and McCann hitting an OPS of .543 with a batting average below the Mendoza line, the Mets need to find a catcher before today's deadline ends that can hit and be a force behind home.

    Moments after Sunday’s loss to the San Francisco Giants, Willson Contreras sat in the visitors dugout at Oracle Park when it hit him. He realized this was the Chicago Cubs’ last game before Tuesday’s 5 p.m. trade deadline. If, as expected, Contreras is traded, Sunday marked his final game with the only organization he has known since he signed as a teenager from Venezuela. So Contreras lingered, staring out at the field. He accepted hugs from teammates making their way into the clubhouse. And now all he can do is wait. “We’ll see what happens,” Contreras said afterward. “It’s going to be a long day. It’s been a long, long, long week. A long, long month for me. But I’m ready for this to be over with.” Less than 48 hours remain until Contreras’ immediate future is resolved. For now he is stuck in limbo: a Cub unless he is told otherwise. “To be honest, this is the first time in my career that I’m in this position,” Contreras said. “It’s not easy. I just want this to be over....
    Players come and go at Wrigley Field, and some of the lucky ones get the send-off they deserve. Such was the case Tuesday for Willson Contreras in the final home game for the Chicago Cubs catcher before the Aug. 2 trade deadline. While the Cubs haven’t outright said their most popular player would be traded, everyone in the crowd of 30,978 seemed to understand this would be the end. Contreras was treated to a long standing ovation before his first inning at-bat, stopped for a moment to wave with his helmet, then blooped a single to center on the first pitch. He received another standing O before his final at-bat in the seventh, and pumped his fist before striking out to end the inning. After the Cubs beat the Pirates 4-2 win for their sixth straight, Contreras was the last player to leave the field, getting bear hugs from longtime teammates Kyle Hendricks, Jason Heyward and Ian Happ, while manager David Ross hugged and lifted him up off the ground like a beer keg. After one last look, and one...
    Jed Hoyer knows the drill. When the Chicago Cubs hit a new low, the team president gathers reporters together to defend the manager, his game plan and the organization as a whole. Theo Epstein did it more than a decade ago, praising manager Dale Sveum, the rebuild and the Rickettses during the 2012 and ‘13 seasons, before whacking Sveum after two years on the job. On Thursday it was Hoyer’s turn to defend the job performance of manager David Ross, praise the rebuild that can’t be called a rebuild and ensure fans the Cubs remain on the right path. He did so for more than a half hour in the home dugout at Wrigley Field before a game against the San Diego Padres as the Cubs tried to end a brutal nine-game losing streak. It was a difficult task for Hoyer. Eleven months after selling off his biggest stars and embarking on a new and less expensive path, the Cubs are worse off than they were before the 2021 trade deadline. They began the day only a half-game ahead of...

    The Chicago Cubs are being cautious with catcher Willson Contreras. After a day off Monday, Contreras was not in Tuesday’s lineup against the White Sox at Wrigley Field. He is banged up but it’s “nothing serious,” according to manager David Ross. Contreras is considered day to day and was available to hit off the bench. Ross declined to provide specifics on what is ailing Contreras. Asked whether it’s a lower- or upper-body injury, Ross replied, “Mid.” Contreras started at designated hitter Saturday in Milwaukee and did not play Sunday. “He’s got a little something going on and trying to just keep it under wraps for competitive advantage stuff,” Ross said Tuesday. Left-hander Drew Smyly was scratched from Tuesday’s start and placed on the bereavement list. Players must spend at least three days and up to seven on the list. The Cubs opted for a bullpen game to begin the City Series with reliever Scott Effross getting the start. The bullpen entered Tuesday leading the majors with 115 strikeouts and 11.33 strikeouts per nine innings. Ethan Roberts placed on injured list...

    SEATTLE (AP) — A berry grower will pay $350,000 to Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s office due to an ex-manager’s assaults and alleged sexual harassment of female employees over at least seven years. The Seattle Times reports the money, agreed to in a consent decree filed simultaneously with a civil complaint this week in Walla Walla Superior Court, will go to several women harmed while working on a blueberry farm near the Tri-Cities operated by Great Columbia Berry Farms, according to Ferguson’s office. The company violated the Washington Law Against Discrimination and the federal Civil Rights Act by letting the conduct continue, Ferguson charged in the complaint. Great Columbia Berry Farms denied the state’s allegations in the consent decree. “We were disturbed and shocked when we learned that an employee engaged in criminal conduct and the employee was dismissed," president and CEO Steve Erickson said in an email. "Great Columbia chose to enter the consent decree to resolve issues with the victim of the crime and move forward without engaging in adversarial litigation.” At the Great Columbia Berry farm,...
