Sorry for the abbreviated recap this morning, folks, but some things came up this morning preventing a thorough going-over of the box scores, game stories and whatnot. It’ll be a normal day besides that. Just an early morning jam-up.

So, discuss yesterday’s amongst yourself. I’ll give you a topic: Could Yasiel Puig create a rock so big that He Himself could not lift it?

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.
