The Cubs got a first pitch HR from Kyle Schwarber and that was it on offense as Ivan Nova and Sox relievers shut them down in a 3-1 loss. In a drama filled moment, former Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez hit a go-ahead ninth inning home run off of Pedro Strop to secure the win for the White Sox.

The Dodgers approached OF Joc Pederson about learning 1B when AJ Pollock went down. Now, Dave Roberts said, they're "ramping it up." Against righties, it can be a way to put Pollock, Pederson, Alex Verdugo and Max Muncy, who has been more adept at 2B, in the same lineup. Roberts said Pederson is "more excited about playing first base than I've seen him excited about anything, outside of hitting a homer."

Yankees starter Domingo Germán (left hip flexor) reports he played catch for the first time during his rehab yesterday. He'll play catch again today. He says the sensation of pain is gone. He's doing exercises and stretches he couldn't do when he was first hurt. Adds that he's feeling better. Luis Severino continues throwing off flat ground, but hasn't yet gotten on a mound. Yankees continue to be very careful and patient with getting him back. Severino says he thinks he'll need at least five bullpen sessions off the mound before he gets to a sim game/live BP. At that point, it would be like going through a virtual spring training, manager Aaron Boone said.

Giancarlo Stanton says he actually "tore" his left biceps muscle when that was first hurt. Then, as he started swinging again, that shoulder began acting up. That led to a cortisone shot. When he was hit by that pitch in the knee later during his rehab, he said it left his calf unstable, leading to the strain. He says the entire time he spent on the IL was "very frustrating; not ideal."

Yankees lefty Jordan Montgomery "had a little discomfort" in a bullpen session in Tampa today, Aaron Boone says. The manager didn't have too much he felt he could elaborate on with that when he met reporters before Tuesday's game versus Tampa Bay. Montgomeryis coming off Tommy John surgery.
