    Here’s a look at what’s happening around the majors today:

    SWING OR MISS?

    Many hitters got off to a smashing start in July as Cleveland socked 11 doubles Geron Christian Color Rush Jersey , Baltimore homered four times and the Cubs combined with Minnesota for 21 runs at Wrigley Field on Sunday. Now, we’ll see if the trend continues as the weather heats up and the balls fly.

    June marked the second time in three months that strikeouts exceeded hits in the major leagues, a pattern that had never occurred until this year. About halfway through the season, there had been 21,090 strikeouts and 20,671 hits.

    SLAMMIN’

    The Reds try to keep socking grand slams when the White Sox come to Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati leads the majors with nine slams and has already tied the single-season franchise record set in 2002.

    Jose Peraza hit one Sunday Troy Apke Color Rush Jersey , and pitchers Mike Lorenzen and Anthony DeSclafani recently connected. Eight different Reds have hit grand slams – Adam Duvall is the only player with two.

    James Shields, who twice has led the league in homers allowed, starts for Chicago.

    MOTOWN MEMORIES

    Washington ace Max Scherzer (10-4, 2.04 ERA) will face ex-Detroit teammate Rick Porcello (9-3, 3.60 ERA) in a matchup of former Cy Young Award winners when the Boston Red Sox visit Nationals Park.

    HE’S BACK

    Shortstop Jorge Polanco is set to rejoin the Twins after serving an 80-game drug suspension. He went 8 for 19 in six rehab games at Triple-A and Class A, and will report to the big league club for the series opener at Milwaukee. The 24-year-old Polanco was a key contributor last season when the Twins earned an AL wild-card spot.

    SEATTLE SLOW

    The Mariners plan to monitor Felix Hernandez and his back stiffness over the next few days. Hernandez pitched five innings Saturday night and earned the victory over Kansas City Michael Gallup Color Rush Jersey , but struggled with back pain and wasn’t able to sit down in the dugout between innings. The six-time All-Star is 8-6 with a 5.11 ERA in 18 starts this season.

    Seattle fans don’t need to worry about Russell Wilson.

    The Seahawks quarterback didn’t neglect his football duties during his week at spring training with the New York Yankees.

    Wilson did his offseason gridiron drills each morning with his trainer before taking the baseball field.

    ”I’m definitely not sitting on the couch,” Wilson said.

    Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday are heavy days for Wilson, with Wednesday and Saturday light days and Sunday typically off.

    Wilson, who took batting practice with Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge during his final Yankees’ workout Saturday Dorance Armstrong Jr. Color Rush Jersey , gave an autographed football to all of his teammates.

    A former minor league infielder, the Yankees acquired him from Texas last month and wanted to observe his leadership skills. He wanted to soak up the attitude of a franchise with 27 World Series titles.

    Wilson did get an unexpected at-bat in Friday’s game against Atlanta, striking out on a 2-2 pitch from left-hander Max Fried.

    The 29-year-old Wilson led the Seahawks to the Super Bowl title after the 2013 season.

    NOTES: Luis Severino had a strong three-inning simulated game, striking out seven and allowing two hits. Third in last season’s AL Cy Young Award voting, the right-hander threw 37 of 47 pitches for strikes.

    Severino said an opening day start would mean a lot.

    ”For now, I’m not thinking about that Dalton Schultz Color Rush Jersey ,” Severino said. ”Working on my pitches.”

    Severino could make his first spring training start Thursday against Philadelphia.
