Vasilis Drimalitis | Amazin’ Avenue: Jacob deGrom was scratched from his start Tuesday with right lat tightness. deGrom won’t throw for a few days but will avoid the IL for now.

Ben Clemens | FanGraphs: Kris Bryant has returned to form and he has a new swing (and a lack of injuries) to thank. Bryant’s new approach has allowed him to crush high pitches after feasting on pitches low in the zone in the first part of his career.

Jake Mailhot | Lookout Landing: Not all spin is created equal, and this fact has led Jake Mailhot to revisit Stuff+, a way to measure the qualities of a pitcher’s arsenal.

Quick Hits

Huascar Ynoa hit a grand slam, once again proving that the universal DH is a dumb, bad idea.

Dylan Cease went 3-for-3 against three different pitchers, which rules, and again, wouldn’t have happened with the universal DH.

Clayton Kershaw had his shortest start ever, giving up four runs in one inning.
