A.J. Green staying loyal to Andy Dalton
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Bengals receiver A.J. Green told NFL Network he's hoping quarterback Andy Dalton receives a contract extension. "We came in together and that is the great thing for me and him," Green said. "I know he's my guy. I don't want any other quarterback throwing me the ball. I think he feels the same way about me."

Green said he's built chemistry with Dalton in their three years together.

"He feels confident that whether I'm double covered, triple covered, it don't matter I'm going to come down with the ball," Green said. "And I feel like we've grown over these last three years and I feel like this year is going to be another key year for us."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Arismendy Alcantara will remain in the majors for the time being.

The team optioned pitcher Kyle Hendricks to the minors following Thursday's start, meaning Alcantara will get a longer run in the majors. He was expected to receive just two days in the majors while Darwin Barney was on paternity leave. Alcantara went 4 for 5 Thursday, helping his cause.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Reds outfielder Billy Hamilton was able to pinch-hit Thursday against the Cubs.

Hamilton did not start due to a hamstring injury, but it doesn't appear to be serious. Hamilton came on in the bottom of the 10th and worked a four-pitch at-bat against Hector Rondon. He flew out to right to end the inning. Hamilton was then replaced by a pitcher, and did not play the field.
