Cubs

Jon Lester leads the Cubs into the desert for the start of a weekend series with the Diamondbacks. Coverage begins on Comcast SportsNet Plus with Cubs Pregame Live at 8 p.m.
Scott Boras, the super-agent representing Kris Bryant and Addison Russell, is past the service-time debate and happy to see the Cubs' future arrive in the form of the organization's top talent.
Despite some solid outings of late, the Cubs' bullpen still has less-than-ideal numbers. One potential improvement could be free agent Rafael Soriano, who the Cubs have shown interest in.
