A look at whats happening all around the majors today:---SHIPPED OUTYasiel Puig is not with the Dodgers for their series in Colorado, and his agent told The Associated Press that Puig expects to be sent to the minor leagues. Mitchell Trubisky Womens Jersey . Adam Katz said Puig was told Monday hed either be traded before the 4 p.m. trade deadline or sent down. Puig was an All-Star in 2014 after a meteoric rise with the Dodgers, but he has struggled this season with hamstring injuries and inconsistent play. He is batting .260 with seven homers in 81 games.DEGROM VS NEW-LOOK YANKSJacob deGrom (6-5, 2.56) leads the Mets into the second game of a four-game Subway Series against the new-look Yankees. DeGrom pitched seven scoreless innings in his last start but got a no decision in a 2-1 loss to Colorado. The Yankees traded Carlos Beltran and Ivan Nova on Monday, joining Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller in an exodus of veterans from the Bronx. Masahiro Tanaka (7-3, 3.16) is up for the Yanks.REINFORCED RANGERSHelp is en route as the AL West-leading Rangers begin a three-game series at AL East-leading Baltimore. Texas acquired outfielder Carlos Beltran, catcher Jonathan Lucroy and reliever Jeremy Jeffress on Monday, bolstering a club that already has the ALs best record and has won four straight games. Yu Darvish (2-2, 3.09) pitches for the Rangers against youngster Dylan Bundy (3-3, 3.46).WASTING BUMGARNERMadison Bumgarner (10-6, 2.09) leads the Giants into a series at Philadelphia. The Giants wasted a gem from Bumgarner in his last start, when he pitched eight innings of two-run ball in a 2-1 loss to the Reds. San Francisco has scored four runs total over Bumgarners last three starts. Zach Eflin (3-4, 4.23) is up for the Phils.REBOUND AT WRIGLEY?Marlins ace Jose Fernandez (12-5, 2.79) tries to get back on track against the Cubs after allowing five runs in five innings in a 5-4 loss to St. Louis on July 28. It was the second time in five starts that Fernandez allowed five or more runs -- he gave up nine in a 9-1 loss to the Braves on July 2. Jason Hammel (10-5, 3.23) pitches for NL Central-leading Chicago at Wrigley Field.HELP FROM WITHINThe Red Sox are calling up top prospect Andrew Benintendi from Double-A Portland, giving the big club a boost in the outfield hours after the non-waiver trade deadline passed. Benintendi is expected to arrive before Bostons game at Seattle. Benintendi was the seventh overall pick in the 2015 draft and is hitting .312 with nine homers, 76 RBI and 16 stolen bases this season between Class A Salem and Double-A Portland.ICHIRO UPDATEMarlins OF Ichiro Suzuki, two hits shy of 3,000, received a standing ovation when he pinch hit in the seventh inning Monday. Suzuki lined a 1-0 pitch to Kris Bryant at third, leaving him in a 2-for-18 slump. Bryant threw to first for a double play. Manager Don Mattingly hinted Ichiro may not start until Wednesdays series finale against RHP John Lackey. Ichiros 37 hits off Lackey are his most vs. any pitcher. Mitchell Trubisky Bears Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Mitchell Trubisky Youth Jersey . Louis Cardinals. Victorino is batting sixth and playing right field after missing two games because of back tightness. http:///...ubisky-bears-jersey/ . McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Some four weeks ago, as the college football season was just beginning, the idea was floated that Alabama had the best group of pass-catchers in the country. And the thought had some merit. Not only was Freshman All-American Calvin Ridley coming back, but so was the sure-handed ArDarius Stewart and the uber-talented O.J. Howard. Throw in grad transfer Gehrig Dieter and a cast of blue-chip underclassmen and the depth was certainly there.Looking back on it now, though, the hype might have been overstated.So far, Stewart is the only Alabama receiver living up to or surpassing expectations. His three touchdown receptions lead the team. Through the first two weeks of the season, he led the league in receiving yards. Ridley, meanwhile, hasnt been as sharp. While hes regained the team lead in receiving yards after an almost nonexistent showing against USC, he still has just one touchdown reception. And that would be OK if not for a lack of production elsewhere.Howard, predictably, has gone back into hiding in the passing game. Yes, hes an asset to the offense as a blocker and demands the attention of the defense, but he hasnt been a primary target. After a supposed breakthrough performance against Clemson in the national title game, hes averaging only 2.3 receptions and 30.7 yards per game. He hasnt caught a touchdown pass and hes dropped 12.5 percent of the passes hes been thrown.Meanwhile, Dieter has had issues dropping the football, too. Hes been targeted 13 times and caught only three passes. HHes shown nice speed and an ability to get open, but that doesnt matter if you cant convert.ddddddddddddOutside of that group of four (Stewart, Ridley, Dieter and Howard), no Alabama player has more than 20 yards receiving and none has recorded a touchdown reception.In other words: Its time to get more people involved.And before you assume that Robert Foster is the next man up, think again. Nick Saban was asked who would replace Stewart in the lineup on Saturday against Kent State as he recovers from an ankle injury. Saban said, Robert will play some, but the guy thats been playing really well for us is Cam Sims.Sims, a 6-foot-4 former four-star prospect from Louisiana, had a knee injury that slowed his progress early in his career, but now hes gained the attention of the coaching staff with his play during practice. Sims, Foster and true freshman Trevon Diggs could all get significant reps this weekend. Diggs is a particularly interesting case study in that Saban wants to continue to use him as a defensive back and kick returner.Regardless of who steps up, whether its a player off the bench or someone already in the starting lineup, there needs to be improvement at the position to help quarterback Jalen Hurts. Hurts, a freshman, has performed admirably, but his job would be a lot easier if the Tide receivers would start performing like the best group of pass-catchers in the country.
