- Here’s the latest from around the National League West.

- Milwaukee acquired Neil Walker from the Mets on Saturday.
- Bryce Harper has but a “mere bone bruise” and will likely play again this season because he is pretty unstoppable.
- The Jeter-fronted group has reached an agreement to purchase the Marlins, so let’s all pray for an even bigger, more grand statue.
- Chad Bettis returned to baseball after cancer and the Rockies played the perfect song for the occasion. Also, everyone in America should own a Chad Bettis jersey.
- The White Sox have traded veteran relief pitcher Tyler Clippard to Astros.
- Byron Buxton laid out for this spectacularly impossible catch.
- The Rangers will hand out tiny on-deck circles in honor of Adrian Beltre’s antics, so time to put in for vacation time because you really need to be at this game.
