Kris Bryant had a night for the ages in Monday's win over the Reds, going 5-for-5 with three homers and two doubles while driving in six runs.

Bryant went deep twice off of Reds starter Dan Straily and once off of reliever Ross Ohlendorf, with two of the longballs reaching the upper deck at Great American Ball Park. He scored four times and totaled 16 bases on the night, which was three shy of Shawn Green's major league record of 19. Dating back to 1913, no player had ever hit three homers and doubled twice in the same game. Bryant's 21 dingers on the season pull him into a tie with Nolan Arenado and Adam Duvall for the National League lead.

Noah Syndergaard is also pitching through a bone spur in his throwing elbow, per Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News.

It's a troubling development, as teammate Steven Matz is dealing with the same issue. Both pitchers are trying to avoid in-season surgery at the moment. Syndergaard gave up a season-high five runs on seven hits and walked a season-high three batters over three innings in Monday's loss to the Nationals. Mets manager Terry Collins said that his elbow wasn't an issue in the start, but concern over this situation isn't going away.

Joey Votto hit a pair of homers, drove in three and scored three runs in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

The Reds probably weren't counting on scoring eight runs on a night when Jake Arrieta started, but it still wasn't enough as they lost a slugfest. Votto got off to a slow start this season but has been red-hot over the last month, batting .314 with seven home runs and 15 RBI across his last 28 games.

Jonathan Papelbon (intercostal) tossed a perfect inning Monday in his first minor league rehab appearance with High-A Potomac.

Papelbon struck out one batter and needed 10 pitches to get through the frame. He'll probably need at least one more appearance before rejoining the Nationals. Papelbon has been sidelined since June 12 with a right intercostal strain.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin said that Josh Reddick (thumb) is track to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

Reddick, out since May 19 with fractured left thumb, is 3-for-20 (.150) with a homer over five rehab games with Triple-A Nashville. Assuming all goes well Monday, he's expected to return to the A's for Tuesday's game against the Giants. Reddick was batting .322/.394/.466 with five homers and 18 RBI in 44 games prior to the injury. He could become trade bait for Oakland next month if the two sides don't make progress on a contract extension. Joe Stiglich of CSNBayArea.com hears that Reddick is on a preliminary list of players under consideration by the Giants.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Monday that Garrett Richards has shown "progressive healing" in the ulnar collateral ligament in his throwing elbow.

Richards received a stem-cell injection six weeks ago in his efforts to avoid Tommy John surgery. Monday's exam was good news, but he's scheduled to be evaluated again in six weeks before the next step is determined. If Richards ends up needing Tommy John surgery, he would miss the entire 2017 season.

Lance McCullers has been scratched from Tuesday's start against the Angels due to a blister.

McCullers is dealing with a start of a small blister on his finger and the Astros don't want to take any chances. Scott Feldman will make the start in his place. McCullers could return to action as soon as this weekend against the White Sox.

Yunel Escobar (knee) remained out of the Angels' lineup Monday against the Astros.

Escobar has now missed four straight games. He was diagnosed with a bone bruise following an MRI and it's unclear when he'll be ready to return to action. Jefry Marte is filling in at third base again Monday.

Juan Lagares (thumb) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Tuesday with Double-A Binghamton.

He's expected to be joined by the newly-signed Jose Reyes, who will move up from Low-A Brooklyn on Tuesday. Lagares has been sidelined since June 14 with a sprained left thumb and still hopes to avoid surgery.

Cuban infielder Yulieski Gourriel had a 90-minute workout with the Mets on Monday in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Marc Carig of Newsday hears that the Mets had a "pretty big contingent" on hand, including general manager Sandy Alderson, special assistant J.P. Ricciardi, and some of the team's top scouts. The Mets added Jose Reyes on a minor league deal over the weekend and intend to give him playing time at third base, but the move isn't expected to impact their pursuit of Gourriel. Of course, Gourriel is going to cost them and they will face plenty of competition to land him. The 32-year-old also recently had a workout with the Dodgers.
