Albert Almora (family) is expected back Thursday.

Almora was placed on the family medical emergency leave list before the Cubs' first-half finale against the Padres. He'll be back for their first game out of the All-Star break on Thursday versus the Cardinals. The 24-year-old outfielder is batting .319/.357/.438 with four homers and 48 runs scored in 86 games this season.

Anthony Bass (illness) worked a scoreless, hitless inning in a rehab appearance Tuesday night with Triple-A Iowa.

Bass was placed on the disabled list July 5 with what was called a skin infection. He should be ready shortly after the All-Star break. The 30-year-old right-hander holds an excellent 0.63 ERA and 14/1 K/BB ratio in 14 1/3 innings this season out of the Cubs' bullpen.
Jul 18 - 10:27 AM

Cubs activated RHP Carl Edwards Jr. from the paternity leave list.

Edwards will return to the Cubs' bullpen ahead of Thursday's series opener against the Cardinals. The 26-year-old setup man has registered a strong 2.89 ERA, 1.179 WHIP, and 48/13 K/BB ratio in 28 innings this season.
Jul 18 - 10:23 AM

Cubs optioned LHP Rob Zastryzny to Triple-A Iowa.

Zastryzny has posted a 4.76 ERA, 1.77 WHIP, and 3/4 K/BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings this season with Chicago. Carl Edwards Jr. was activated off the paternity leave list in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Jul 18 - 10:21 AM

Cubs optioned INF David Bote to Triple-A Iowa.

Bote gave the Cubs a little extra infield depth for the final day of the first half. He's posted an impressive .310/.415/.452 batting line through his first 20 games at the major league level this season, but the 25-year-old rookie is better off getting regular playing time at Triple-A.
Jul 18 - 10:19 AM

Pedro Baez (biceps) worked a 1-2-3 inning in his rehab debut Tuesday with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Baez retired all three batters he faced in the 14-pitch outing, one via strikeout and two via groundout. He'll probably make two or three more appearances on the farm before returning to the Dodgers' bullpen shortly after the All-Star break. The 30-year-old setup man had a 3.23 ERA and 36/16 K/BB ratio in 30 2/3 innings when he landed on the disabled list June 12 with tendinitis in his right biceps.
Jul 18 - 8:15 AM

Josh Hader apologized for sending out racist and homophobic tweets as a teenager in 2011-2012 after Tuesday night's 2018 MLB All-Star Game.

Hader's ugly past on Twitter began popping up as he struggled through a three-run eighth inning in the National League's eventual 8-6 loss to the American League. "When you’re a kid, you tweet what’s on your mind," the Brewers' setup man told reporters late Tuesday. "I was young, immature, and stupid." Hader said he will address the issue with his teammates before play resumes for the second half and is "ready for any consequences" that might come.

Aaron Judge homered and drew a walk Tuesday as the American League topped the National League in the All-Star Game.

Judge's solo shot in the top of the second inning off Nationals starter Max Scherzer kicked off a big night of scoring for both sides. 10 total home runs were hit, a new record for an All-Star Game. Judge heads into the second half with an excellent .937 OPS, 25 home runs, and 60 RBI in 93 regular-season games.
