Blake Harris | Halos Heaven: Mike Trout was transferred to the 60-day IL Monday. The stint is retroactive to May 17, so Trout won’t be eligible to return until July 17. Trout has been out with a strained right calf.

Cooper Halpern | Pinstripe Alley: Entering the season, if the Yankees weren’t one of the best teams in the American League, they were the best. A month from the trade deadline, though, they find themselves just two games over .500 and fourth in the AL East. Are the Yankees confident enough in their team to buy, or will they sell?

Ben Clemens | FanGraphs: After his start against the Padres last week, Trevor Bauer claimed he was the unluckiest pitcher in baseball because every mistake he throws gets punished. Ben Clemens put that statement to the test.

Quick Hits

The Cubs and Brewers entered the eighth inning with a 4-4 tie, but the Brewers exploded for 10 runs capped off by a home run by Keston Hiura.

Austin Hays broke another 4-4 tie with a home run in the ninth.

Nick Castellanos knocked in seven runs with a three-hit game.
