Jeremy Guthrie leaves game with a back strain

Orioles starter was having a nice day against the Blue Jays. He had five shutout innings under his belt with five strikeouts, but then he had to leave the game with a strained back. Updates will come later.

You never want to see a starter hurt, but given that the Orioles are probably thinking about putting Guthrie on the market before the deadline, any time lost now would kind of stink for them.

Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cubs shortstop Addison Russell stayed overnight in Denver after having an allergic reaction to something he ate from the postgame spread in the clubhouse at Coors Field after Sunday afternoon’s game. Russell spent a couple of hours at a hospital in Denver for observation on Sunday night.

Russell has a shellfish allergy and believes something he ate might have been mistakenly labeled as not having shrimp in it.

The Cubs took two of three games from the Rockies. After Monday’s day off, the Cubs open a brief two-game series in Cleveland for a rematch of the 2016 World Series. Russell flew with the team to Cleveland and believes he will be in good enough shape to play on Tuesday.

Russell, 24, has had a slow start to the season. He’s hitting .219/.324/.281 across 74 plate appearances.
