Kris Bryant homered twice in four at-bats for Triple-A Iowa Sunday, and followed that up by going 1-for-2 with a solo-home run and two walks in Monday's afternoon game.
Bryant made his Triple-A PCL debut last Thursday and, already five games into his Triple-A career the Cubs top third base prospect already has four home runs. This should come as no surprise as Bryant still leads the Southern League (Double-A) in home runs even though he has not played there in almost a week. Not to mention he also won that leagues All-Star Home Run Derby before getting his call-up to the Iowa Cubs where, regardless of how well he hits, will likely remain there for the duration of the season as the team has no reason to rush him. He could force his way up with a strong showing, but it looks like he's a September call-up at best now.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Jets have been trying to lower Percy Harvin's salary to keep him.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports' said that he "would be shocked" if Percy Harvin agreed to take a cut in pay to stay in New York. Harvin is due a non-guaranteed $10.5 million but the Jets are trying to lower that number. If he does say no like most think, there's a chance the Jets could release Harvin. The New England Patriots have let it be known that they are big fans of the wide receiver and would be a prime candidate to pick him up if he became available. Analysis: Drew Phelps
