Chicago Cubs DFS SPIN

Cubs manager David Ross said Kris Bryant was dealing with "sinus stuff" during Tuesday night's game against the Indians. Ross noted to reporters that Bryant had trouble breathing at one point, so they decided to take him out before the bottom of the sixth inning. He'll be reevaluated before Wednesday's series finale in Cleveland.

Jose Ramirez clubbed his 10th home run of the season in the Indians' 3-2 win over the Cubs on Tuesday. It was a fourth-inning solo shot off Cubs starter Adbert Alzolay. Ramirez didn't register another hit in the game, but he managed to raise his season OPS back above .900 -- to .911 now -- and he is again tied for the American League lead in home runs. J.D. Martinez and Shohei Ohtani also have 10. Ronald Acuna leads all of MLB with 11.
