Tuesday’s trade:

    A few hours after Roquan Smith released a statement saying he requested a trade from the Chicago Bears, he watched Tuesday’s Family Fest practice from the sideline at Soldier Field. General manager Ryan Poles took in the practice just 35 yards away from his star linebacker. But the two apparently remain a greater distance apart when it comes to contract negotiations. Smith, who has sat out all 11 training camp practices while awaiting a new deal, said in a statement to NFL Network on Tuesday morning that the Bears front office “doesn’t value me here,” has “refused to negotiate in good faith” and has focused on “trying to take advantage of me.” He said he has been in talks with the Bears since April and the deal they proposed would be bad for him and the entire linebacker market. “I wanted to be a Bear for my entire career, help this team bring a Super Bowl back to our city,” Smith’s statement read. “However, they have left me no choice than to request a trade that allows me to play...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Trey Mancini homered in his first start for Houston to back a sterling performance by Jose Urquidy, and the Astros beat the Boston Red Sox 6-1 Wednesday. Mancini, who was traded from Baltimore on Monday to bolster the offense with first baseman Yuli Gurriel struggling, grounded out as a pinch-hitter in his Astros debut Tuesday night. Things went much better in his first at-bat Wednesday, when he knocked a pitch from Rich Hill (4-5) into the seats in left field for a two-run shot that made it 4-0 with no outs in the second inning. Urquidy (10-4) allowed two hits and tied a career high with 10 strikeouts in seven shutout innings. He retired the first 13 batters before plunking Alex Verdugo with one out in the fifth. He sat down the next two batters in that inning before Reese McGuire got Boston’s first hit on a single to open the sixth. Tommy Pham doubled with two outs in the inning, but Urquidy struck out Rafael Devers to end the threat. Jose Altuve...
    The image of Ian Happ and Willson Contreras embracing in the home dugout at Wrigley Field represented a moment of goodbyes for what appeared to await the Chicago Cubs All-Stars. That moment one week ago now becomes a reminder of the ups and downs leading up to the trade deadline, the uncertainties of the unknown. Both players thought that July 26 day was their last at Wrigley in a Cubs uniform. Yet Contreras and Happ will return with their teammates Friday for the Cubs’ next homestand. Despite the Cubs’ 6-0 loss Tuesday to the St. Louis Cardinals, a lightheartedness lingered. Contreras barely could keep a smile off his face after president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer did not trade him because of insufficient value in return. Happ, meanwhile, joked it was the media’s fault for making him think he would be traded: “All those stories and the cameras the last couple days at Wrigley, it’s all on you guys.” Happ understands his situation, however. His last year of team control in 2023 before free agency made him an attractive option...
    The Philadelphia Phillies have bolstered their bullpen for the upcoming playoff by acquiring veteran reliever David Robertson from the Chicago Cubs.   The Phillies secured the 37-year-old with a little over two hours remaining in Tuesday's trade window, via ESPN's baseball insider Jeff Passan. Chicago got a pitcher in return from Philadelphia, acquiring Ben Brown, who will now join the struggling 41-60 Cubs.  Robertson is no stranger to the City of Brotherly Love, after signing a two-year, $23 million contract with the Phillies in 2019. However, he underwent elbow surgery in 2020 and was released.  The Philadelphia Phillies have bolstered their bullpen for the upcoming playoff by acquiring veteran reliever David Robertson from the Chicago Cubs Fortunately for Philadelphia, Robertson has risen toward his former heights this season in somewhat of a renaissance year. The former Alabama star has given up a measly 23 hits across 40 and a 1/3 innings.  In addition, he has accumulated a 2.23 ERA and 14 saves despite Chicago's struggles.  Philadelphia are in a much stronger position in the National League than the Cubs and currently...
    In what may be the first of several major trades involving top-level relievers, the San Diego Padres have reportedly acquired Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader for four players ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Padres spokespeople did not immediately respond to DailyMail.com's request for confirmation. The price for Hader, a four-time All-Star, wasn't cheap: Veteran closer Taylor Rogers, pitching prospect Robert Gasser, outfielder Esteury Ruiz and right-hander Dinelson Lamet are all headed to Milwaukee.

The 28-year-old southpaw is eligible for arbitration next season after earning $11 million for the 2022 campaign. Unless San Diego is prepared to re-sign Hader, he might just be a rental for...
    As one of the biggest names on the list of potential trades in Major League Baseball, Nationals star Juan Soto is still getting used to his name being thrown around in the media. Trade talks continue to circulate ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline as the Dominican Republic-born outfielder has rejected multiple offers to stay in the nation's capitol.  The 2022 Home Run Derby winner has received multiple contract extension proposals, with the most recent being a reported 15-year, $440million deal. That contract would have made Soto the highest paid player in baseball, overtaking the $426.5 million deal given to Los Angeles Angels star Mike Trout. Juan Soto's time in Washington could come to a very abrupt end this week  Soto won the 2022 Home Run Derby, as part of his second All-Star selection Soto was a key contributor on the 2019 Nationals team that won the World Series That rejection of a contract offer has set a rumor mill alight within MLB circles, as fans try putting together potential trades to see if their favorite teams could land the slugger....
    Willson Contreras was a topic of conversation this Tuesday’s episode of the Baseball Insiders. Will the Cubs find a suitor for their longtime catcher? Due to technical difficulties, the Baseball Insiders was not live on Tuesday. But never fear, baseball fans, FanSided‘s Mark Carman and Robert Murray were able to scrap the live stream for the day and still provide the listeners with top-notch behind-the-scenes news and notes from your favorite baseball teams. Bert took to Twitter to answer some fan questions, and obviously with the trade deadline just three weeks away, rumors and speculation were at the top of the agenda on Tuesday’s show.Where will Willson Contreras end up?Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras still very likely to be traded before the deadline. After offloading Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez, and Kris Bryant last summer, look for the Cubbies to wave goodbye to Contreras before Aug. 2. So who might be interested, you ask? A number of teams could be in on the All-Star, but some clubs that Murray rattled off were the New York Mets, San Diego Padres, Houston Astros,...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden plans to meet with Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador on Tuesday for discussions the White House says will showcase the underlying strength of a relationship that of late has been more notable for the leaders’ disagreements on issues including energy and Ukraine policy. López Obrador declined Biden’s invitation to the Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles last month after unsuccessfully urging the U.S. to include the leaders of Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela — all countries with anti-democratic regimes. The Mexican leader also has called U.S. support for Ukraine in its war with Russia “a crass error” and criticized the U.S. for moving more swiftly to provide military funding to Ukraine than financial aid to Central America. There also are political crosscurrents in Washington, where top Republicans have pointed to a rising number of people from Mexico and Central America crossing the southern U.S. border illegally and have criticized the Democratic president’s administration for not doing more to curb the migration. It will be the second in-person meeting between Biden and López Obrador...
    TOKYO (AP) — U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Japan’s finance minister agreed Tuesday to cooperate in dealing with challenges from the war in Ukraine and promoting free trade, sustainable energy and food security. Yellen was visiting Tokyo on Tuesday for talks ahead of a meeting of the Group of 20′s financial leaders on the Indonesian island of Bali later in the week. Before beginning her meeting with Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki, she stressed the importance of effective sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine and said she hoped to gain the support of Japan and other nations in seeking a price cap on Russian oil that would limit funding going to Moscow’s military. “Our governments have common viewpoints and interests on many of the most pressing priorities affecting our national interests as well as global stability and prosperity. And when we work together, we are each more effective,” she said. Suzuki welcomed Yellen, saying: “At this time, when the international community faces so many challenges, it is more important than ever for the U.S....
    Oil well pump jacks operated by Chevron Corp. in San Ardo, California, U.S., on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.David Paul Morris | Bloomberg | Getty Images Oil prices tumbled Tuesday with the U.S. benchmark falling below $100 as recession fears grow, sparking fears that an economic slowdown will cut demand for petroleum products. West Texas Intermediate crude, the U.S. oil benchmark, slid 8%, or $8.67, to trade at $99.76 per barrel. The contract last traded under $100 on May 11. International benchmark Brent crude shed 7.7%, or $8.74, to trade at $104.76 per barrel Tuesday. Both contracts posted losses in June, snapping six straight months of gains as recession fears cause Wall Street to reconsider the demand outlook. Citi said Tuesday that Brent could fall to $65 by the end of this year should the economy tip into a recession. "In a recession scenario with rising unemployment, household and corporate bankruptcies, commodities would chase a falling cost curve as costs deflate and margins turn negative to drive supply curtailments," the firm wrote in a note to clients. The firm has been...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — In a pointed back and forth, the head of Chevron complained Tuesday that President Joe Biden has vilified energy firms at a time when gasoline prices are at near record levels and the president responded that the oil company CEO was being “mildly sensitive.” The president in recent weeks has criticized oil producers and refiners for maximizing profits and making “more money than God,” rather than increasing production in response to higher prices as the economy recovers from the pandemic and feels the effects of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Michael Wirth, chairman and CEO of Chevron, sent Biden a letter via email on Tuesday that said the president’s own words have been self-defeating in terms of encouraging companies to boost their output. Chevron is investing in more production, Wirth wrote, but “your Administration has largely sought to criticize, and at times vilify, our industry. These actions are not beneficial to meeting the challenges we face and are not what the American people deserve.” The oil company CEO said he wanted a more cooperative relationship with the...
    Joey Bart is headed back to the minor leagues. The struggling rookie catcher was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento following the Giants’ 5-3 loss to the Rockies on Tuesday. Aside from optioning Bart, the Giants also announced they completed a trade to acquire a new catcher Wednesday, adding Austin Wynns in a deal with the Phillies that sent minor league pitcher Michael Plassmeyer to Philadelphia. With Bart hitting just .156 and his OPS dropping down to .596 following an 0-for-3 performance on Tuesday, the Giants elected to send him to the minors to work on his swing. It’s unclear if Wynns will join the major league roster or if the Giants will call up recently acquired catcher Michael Papierski to play behind Curt Casali, who is now poised to make the majority of starts behind the plate.

    Pope Francis expressed his sympathy for the families of the Tuesday shooting at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas. Francis addressed the shooting during his weekly appearance on Wednesday, expressing his feelings over the deadliest school shooting in years. TEXAS TRAGEDY HITS HOME FOR GEORGIA DEMOCRATIC HOUSE NOMINEE REP. LUCY MCBATH "I am left heartbroken by the massacre in the elementary school in Texas," Francis said, according to Reuters. "I pray for the children, for the adults killed, and for their families." He then shifted his focus to the gun industry, saying, "It is time to say 'enough' to the indiscriminate trafficking of weapons. Let us all make a commitment so that tragedies like this cannot happen again." Francis has been a critic of the firearms industry for years and has claimed that spending money on weapons "sullies the soul."

    Blac Chyna's bid to force the E! network to reveal how much it earned in profits from her short-lived reality show, Rob & Chyna, has been tossed out by a judge, DailyMail.com can reveal.  The Los Angeles judge presiding over the the 33 year-old's lawsuit against the Kardashian clan has quashed her request to subpoena the network to open up its books on the spin-off series during its seven-episode run in 2016. Chyna's attorney, Lynne Ciani, had argued that details surrounding the profits E! reaped from the series is vital to her claim for damages against the billionaire family. But E! attorney Rochelle Wilcox filed an opposing motion, telling Judge Gregory Alarcon Monday that such information is a 'privileged trade secret' that should not be disclosed in public. Judge Alarcon granted the network's motion Tuesday in a written ruling after 'finding that plaintiff (Chyna) has failed to show good cause to seek trade secrets.' Chyna, who shares a daughter with Rob Kardashian, 35, is suing the Kardashian family for $108million, accusing them of defamation and 'intentional interference with contract' that...
    By The Associated Press GENEVA — The World Trade Organization is predicting that trade in goods will grow much less than previously expected this year, saying prospects for the global economy have darkened since the onset of Russia’s war in Ukraine. The Geneva-based WTO on Tuesday pointed to multiple uncertainties in its forecast over the next two years because Russian and Ukrainian exports of items like food, oil and fertilizers are under threat from the war. It also cited the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic –- notably from lockdowns in China. Director-General Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala described a “double whammy” from the conflict and the coronavirus. She said the war has caused “immense human suffering” in the region and its effect has rippled around the world, notably in poorer countries. The WTO said its projections for world trade take into account factors like the impact of the war, sanctions on Russia, and lower demand around the world from lower business and consumer confidence. It said world merchandise trade volume is expected to grow 3% this year, down from a forecast of...
    By The Associated Press Russia and Ukraine have traded accusations about the naval mines that have been set adrift in the Black Sea, threatening shipping. The Russian military has alleged that the Ukrainian military has used old naval mines to protect the coast against a Russian landing and some of them have been ripped off their anchors by a storm and left adrift. Russian Col. Gen. Mikhail Mizintsev reaffirmed Tuesday that “the threat of Ukrainian mines drifting along the coastline of Black Sea states remains.” The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry responded in a statement Tuesday, accusing Russia of using Ukrainian mines it seized after the 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and setting them adrift to “discredit Ukraine before international partners.” The Turkish Defense Ministry said Saturday that a naval mine was spotted near the Bosporus and neutralized. It said the mine was of an old type but didn’t say to whom it belonged. The conflicting claims by Russia and Ukraine couldn’t be independently verified. ___ KEY DEVELOPMENTS IN THE RUSSIA-UKRAINE WAR: — Russia says it will scale back near Kyiv...
    Goalie James Reimer had a fairly uneventful morning to start the week: he hung out with his daughters, made some breakfast with the television on in the background, and had a doctor’s appointment before he and his Sharks teammates boarded a charter plane and flew to Calgary. “And that was pretty much the trade deadline,” Reimer said. The Sharks on Monday, in the hours before the noon (PT) deadline, sent defenseman Jacob Middleton to the Minnesota Wild for goalie Kaapo Kahkonen and a 2022 fifth-round draft choice, leading to some speculation that Reimer might also be on the move. Reimer, though, stayed put and will start Tuesday’s game against the Flames. Sharks coach Bob Boughner said Kahkonen will start Thursday’s game in Edmonton against the Oilers. “It’s trade deadline day. I’ve been through 12 of them by now, and you never know what’s going to happen,” Reimer said. “You care, but you can’t control it. So you just sit back and let it happen and see what happens by the end of the day.” After Kahkonen starts Thursday and Adin...
    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Darcy Kuemper made 23 saves for his second straight shutout, Valeri Nichushkin and J.T. Compher scored on the power play, and the Colorado Avalanche defeated the Los Angeles Kings 3-0 on Tuesday night. Mikko Rantanen had a goal and an assist, and the Avalanche continued their push for a second straight Presidents’ Trophy by becoming the first team this season to pass the 90-point mark. Kuemper followed up his 46-save showing in a 3-0 win over Calgary on Sunday by getting his fifth shutout of the season. Jonathan Quick allowed three goals on 27 shots for the Kings, who are 1-2-1 in their past four games. Colorado’s dangerous special teams cashed in on each of its first two power plays, with Nichushkin racing through the slot to put in Rantanen’s centering pass at 6:36 of the first period. Compher put Colorado ahead 2-0 with 29 seconds left in the second by redirecting Cale Makar’s shot long. Makar was instrumental in the sequence by racing down to break up Anze Kopitar’s short-handed breakaway and forcing...
    London (CNN Business)Oil prices are pulling back and stocks are jumping higher as investors take a beat to consider what Russian President Vladimir Putin might do next. But the mood on Wall Street remains anxious, with traders hooked on headlines from Ukraine."We're still seeing these awful attacks, and we're still seeing sanctions levied right, left and center against Russia," Craig Erlam, a market analyst at OANDA, told me.He characterized the action on Wednesday as a "minor relief rally." The big picture: Russia's isolation from the rest of the world keeps growing. The West is now taking steps to cut itself off from the country's huge energy sector. The United States announced a ban on imports of Russian oil and natural gas on Tuesday, while European Union officials said the bloc would slash imports of Russian natural gas by two-thirds this year.Oil giant Shell announced Tuesday that it would halt new purchases of Russian crude.

    By The Associated Press The latest developments on the Russia-Ukraine war: LONDON — Trading in nickel, much of it produced in Russia, was suspended Tuesday on the London Metal Exchange after prices doubled to an unprecedented $100,000 per metric ton. Nickel is used mostly to produce stainless steel and some alloys, but increasingly it is used in batteries, particularly electric vehicle batteries. Russia, facing severe economic sanctions after invading Ukraine, is the world’s third biggest nickel producer. The Russian mining company Nornickel is a major supplier of the high-grade nickel that is used in electric vehicles. Nickel prices had quadrupled in a week over supply issues and the spike Tuesday forced the LME to shut down electronic and floor trading. Trading in nickel will not resume Tuesday and the halt could last longer than that “given the geopolitical situation which underlies recent price moves,” the LME said Tuesday. ___ VATICAN CITY — The Vatican says it is willing to “do everything to put itself at the service” for peace in Ukraine. Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said that Cardinal Pietro Parolin,...

    SAN JOSE – Unless he signs a contract extension, Tomas Hertl’s name will likely be mentioned with more regularity in rumors as the calendar creeps toward the NHL trade deadline on March 21. The latest one that made the rounds in Calgary media circles before the Sharks’ game on Tuesday was Hertl to the Flames for center Sean Monahan, a conditional first-round pick and possibly a prospect. To clarify, this was all just speculation by some on what the price tag might be to acquire a top-six centerman like Hertl: a player on a sizeable deal to balance the salary cap hits, and young assets with clear upside. This all assumes, though, that the Sharks will be out of the playoff picture by the time March rolls around. But what if the Sharks are still in the mix and Hertl remains unsigned? What does Sharks management do then? It’s hard to imagine general manager Doug Wilson and assistant GM Joe Will letting the popular Hertl walk away for nothing. With the right deal, the Sharks could...
    Jussie Smollett on Tuesday pushed back during a heated cross-examination with prosecutors who claimed the Empire actor, who is accused of staging a hate crime, purposely identified one of the alleged attackers as white to better sell the story. Special prosecutor Daniel Webb claimed Smollett orchestrated the Jan. 29, 2019, attack on himself as part of a publicity stunt, which Smollett has categorically denied. "Did you think by saying that the people that attacked you were white, it would lend credibility to a fake hate crime?" Webb asked. Smollett replied tersely, "You'd have to ask someone that did a fake hate crime."

    San Jose, California (CNN Business)Elizabeth Holmes is set to resume testifying in her criminal trial Tuesday, marking her sixth day on the witness stand, and her second day of being questioned by the prosecution. Some of the focus may be on two words she's repeatedly cited in her defense: "trade secrets."During her time on the stand, the former CEO and founder of Theranos has cited "trade secrets" as rationale for why the company concealed use of commercially sold lab equipment to test patient samples; why the company went after whistleblowers it discovered were talking to then-Wall Street Journal reporter John Carreyrou; and why it was aggressive in trying to quash his investigation that published in October 2015 and upended the company.US attorney Robert Leach is expected to grill Holmes about the trade secrets point on Tuesday, which marks the fourteenth week of her high-profile trial. Indeed, Leach's frustration with the trade secret defense became evident last Tuesday.

    Many think Odell Beckham Jr.’s skill set has diminished since joining the Cleveland Browns, but the tape says otherwise, as does the superstar wide receiver’s father. Odell Beckham Sr. posted a video on his Instagram on Tuesday that showed his son dominating the opposition, but Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was unable to find him. The video, which was posted on YouTube, featured plays from Week 3 to Week 6.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Like roughly 90 percent of the NFL, the New England stood pat and let the NFL trade deadline come and go on Tuesday. The 4pm deadline hit without Bill Belichick making a move. That means the 4-4 Patriots will remain who they have been so far this season. At least they’re a team that is on the rise after winning two straight, a team that Belichick must feel confident enough in to continue on the path he charted out over the offseason.

View the original article to see embedded media.Early Tuesday, Odell Beckham Jr.'s father shared an 11-minute video to Instagram of his son not being thrown the ball by Browns quarterbacks, primarily including Baker Mayfield. The video was a screen recording of a YouTube video that goes week by week showing the Browns receiver being left open during a route.  “Generally Behind Da Scene, BUT NOT TODAY," Beckham Sr. wrote on Instagram.  The post includes the hashtags "#imafatherbeforeanything", "#ihurt4him", and "#disrespectful".  It was curious timing given that Tuesday is the NFL's trade deadline with the three-time Pro Bowler at the center of trade rumors. However, ESPN's Diana Russini reported the Browns have no plans to trade wide receiver Beckham Jr on Tuesday.  On Sunday in a 15-10 loss to the Steelers, Beckham Jr. recorded one catch for six yards....
    LIMA, Pa. (CBS) – A piece of history made a stop in Delaware County. A “we will never forget” banner that hung over the World Trade Center site in the aftermath of 9/11 was brought to the Department of Emergency Services center on Middletown Road in Lima on Tuesday morning. It’s just one of many stops the banner is making on its way from New York to its new home at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. “As the sign says, ‘we will never forget.’ Being part of the fire service, it just means a lot. It really is a brotherhood and it was an honor that we were able to have the sign here,” John-Paul Shirley, of the Chester Fire Department, said. On Tuesday, the banner was escorted by retired members of the fire department of New York and the Delaware Valley Memorial Stair Climb Committee.

    Getty N'Keal Harry Perhaps all N’Keal Harry needed to do for the past two years is request a trade. Ever since Harry’s agent asked the New England Patriots to trade his client, the 2019 first-round pick has done nothing but shine at training camp. Tuesday’s session, which was the first one with pads, was no exception. Harry is beginning to look like the player the Patriots hoped he’d become as a one-on-one threat and as a blocker for runs to the outside.Harry is Making Plays at ReceiverEver since Harry was a star at Arizona State, he has excelled in one-on-one situations against defensive backs, out-muscling them and catching jump balls. His combination of size and athleticism provide potential for a serious red-zone threat–if nothing else. Early on in training camp, we’re seeing some of those gifts shine through. Pat’s Pulpit’s Ryan Spagnoli and Bernd Buchmasser called Harry one of the biggest winners after Day 6 of training camp. They wrote: Harry was able to take advantage of his size and physicality during 1-on-1 drills, making a pair of...
    Kris Bryant has commented on whether or not he’d ever return to the Cubs if they traded him.  With the MLB Trade Deadline quickly approaching, teams are pivoting into one of two modes: Buyers and Sellers. For the Chicago Cubs, the needle seems to be tilting toward the team being sellers at the deadline, with its biggest trade chip being former MVP Kris Bryant. Rumors about a Bryant trade have been swirling since the winter, but as the deadline on Friday approaches those winds have become howling. On Tuesday night it was reported that the San Francisco Giants might be willing to entertain a Bryant trade that sends top prospect Joey Bart back to the Cubs. The New York Mets and Tampa Bay Rays have also had talks with the Cubs about Bryant, although no trade has come close to being complete. Amid the trade chaos is a human being, full stop. Bryant hears the winds blowing and tries to block it out but hasn’t been shy about answering questions about his future when they pop up. Kris Bryant press...

What already looked like a long shot has turned into more of a Hail Mary, as the Nationals have notified the Mets that Scherzer, the three-time Cy Young Award winner who can be a free agent this winter, didn’t want to play for them, as first reported by SNY. Multiple sources indicate that the 37-year-old would prefer to join one of the National League’s West Coast teams, particularly the Dodgers or Padres, by Friday afternoon’s trade deadline. Even if Scherzer expressed more of an openness to joining the Mets, the Nats themselves were not keen on aiding their National League East rival, a second source said, nor...

He’s over 40 now and is still as good as ever.” Cruz, who turned 41 this month, hit his 20th homer of the season — and first with the Rays — on Friday. He joined a Tampa Bay team that trails the first-place Red Sox by one game. The Yankees will head to St. Petersburg, Fla., for a key three-game series, beginning on Tuesday. “It makes them, certainly offensively, that much more potent and dangerous,’’ Boone said before the Yankees’ 6-2 loss to the Red Sox. “It gives them a little different element with a...
    Chicago Cubs utility man Kris Bryant was randomly removed during Tuesday’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Chicago Cubs have begun their fire sale this past week by trading outfielder Joc Pederson to the Atlanta Braves. With the trade deadline approaching, it appears it will be a matter of when, not if, the Cubs trade utility man Kris Bryant, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season. During Tuesday night’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals, Bryant was pulled from the game in the fifth inning. While many are speculating as to whether Bryant removed from the game for trade purposes, it is simply too early to tell.Cubs: Kris Bryant removed from Tuesday’s game against CardinalsESPN’s Jesse Rogers expressed his belief that Bryant was pulled after tweaking something after making a diving catch and making a throw to second base back in the second inning.

Scherzer's stint is backdated to June 12, meaning he'll be eligible to return in a week's time. In corresponding moves, the Nationals designated right-hander Rogelio Armenteros for assignment and purchased the contract of fellow righty Justin Miller from Triple-A Rochester.  © Provided by CBS Sports Scherzer, 37 come late July, exited his outing on Friday after throwing just six pitches. Prior to then, he'd been off to a phenomenal start to this season. In 13 appearances so far, he's compiled a 2.21 ERA (171 ERA+) and a 6.93 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 77 ⅓ innings pitched. Scherzer's fitness is worth monitoring for a variety of reasons, including his availability for the All-Star Game and his expected standing as the top pitcher on the trade block.

    By Aamer Madhani, Jonathan Lemire and Lorne Cook | Associated Press GENEVA — Buoyed by days of partnership-building sessions with America’s democratic allies, Joe Biden arrived in Geneva on Tuesday for the most-watched and tensest part of his first European tour as president: talks with Russia’s Vladimir Putin.
