MLB: Cleveland Indians at Boston Red Sox Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

The Indians beat the Red Sox again. Again! I got to say ‘Again!’

Regularly scheduled setbacks

• Lonnie Chisenhall is rehabbing in Arizona, but “not as close as [Tito and his medical geniuses] hoped.”

• Nick Goody, who exited a ballgame rather dramatically early in the season, is unsurprisingly having more discomfort in his elbow.

Washington Nationals fire sale

• Daniel Murphy is going to spend the rest of his season with the Cubs

• Matt Adams is headed back to St. Louis

• Bryce Harper was claimed by the Dodgers but they were unable to work out a trade
