Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant was out of the starting lineup for the third straight game after he was beaned during a victory at Colorado last weekend. Bryant visited with a team doctor on Thursday, and the Cubs said Bryant hasn't been diagnosed with a concussion. "I don't anticipate anything awful or bad. We're just waiting for everybody to be on board and once we do that he'll be back out there playing," manager Joe Maddon said. The 26-year-old Bryant is batting .319 with two homers and 11 RBI in 19 games.

Miller struck out 17 and walked four over 10 scoreless innings in 11 games this year.


ARLINGTON, Texas — Quarterback desperation means NFL teams can’t pass on taking a passer — even a flawed one — in the draft. The Browns, Jets, Bills and Cardinals heeded that notion, even as more highly rated players at other positions remained on the board. Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield became Cleveland’s latest attempt to find its franchise quarterback at No. 1. Sam Darnold of Southern California went to the Jets at No. 3, while in upstate New York — where the Bills gave up on Tyrod Taylor — the future belongs to Wyoming’s Josh Allen. Just after Buffalo traded up to grab Allen at No. 7, Arizona moved up to No. 10 to get UCLA’s Josh Rosen, a potential replacement for the retired Carson Palmer. Four quarterbacks in the first 10 selections. Never mind that the best players were considered Penn State running back Saquon Barkley (second overall to the Giants) and North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb (fifth to Denver). The last pick of the first round was a fifth quarterback: 2016 Heisman winner Lamar Jackson, chosen by Baltimore.
