Mike Herrera | Mike Trout and Jo Adell are unlikely to return by the season’s end. Trout hasn’t played since late May as he’s dealt with a calf strain. Meanwhile, Jo Adell recently landed on the IL with an abdominal strain.

Dan Martin | The Crawfish Boxes: The Astros picked up three pitchers at the trade deadline: Kendall Graveman, Yimi Garcia, and Phil Maton. Predictably, these pitchers have altered their pitch mix since joining the Astros.

Ben Clemens | FanGraphs: Bunting is bad, but not all bunts are created equal. Some bunts are worse than others. Much, much worse. Here are the worst bunts of the year.

Quick Hits

Cedric Mullins pulled off the home run robbery of the year.

The Red Sox dinked and doinked their way to a six-run 10th to sink the Mariners’ season.

The Padres snapped a five-game losing streak thanks to a two-run homer from Jurickson Profar.
