Giants: Barry Bonds had No. 25 jer­sey re­tired 11 years af­ter he broke Hank Aaron’s home run record in his 22nd and fi­nal ma­jor league sea­son. The Giants held a cer­e­mony at AT&T Park be­fore a game against his other team, the Pitts­burgh Pi­rates. The sev­en­time NL MVP, 54, be­came the 10th Giants player in fran­chise his­tory to have his num­ber re­tired.

Cubs: 3B Kris Bryant (left shoul­der) said there’s no timetable for his re­turn, but he is “to­tally con­fi­dent” he will play again this sea­son. He is tak­ing ground balls and “stages of” dry swings with­out a base­ball. Bryant, 26, has been side­lined since July 24.

Mariners: Felix Her­nan­dez vowed his first-ever stint in Seat­tle’s bullpen won’t last long, say­ing, “I’ll be a starter be­fore the end of the year.” The strug­gling ace was bumped from the ro­ta­tion Thurs­day. … Re­liever Sam Tuiv­ailala (right Achilles strain) will have sea­so­nend­ing surgery.

In­di­ans: DH/1B Ed­win En­car­na­cion was ex­am­ined be­cause of dis­com­fort in his left bi­ceps, and man­ager Terry Fran­cona said the club was await­ing MRI re­sults be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion on whether to put him on the 10-day DL.
