Cubs

Cubs manager Joe Maddon can’t communicate that much with Jorge Soler in Spanish, but he wants his coaching staff to send a message and reinforce certain ideas.
Jason Hammel shut down the Pirates (11-9), limiting them to four hits across eight scoreless innings, striking out seven while walking none in the Cubs' 4-0 win on Monday.
The chatter of bringing a designated hitter to the National League picked up again with the Cardinals losing Adam Wainwright for the season. But Joe Maddon has zero interest in that idea.
