Authorities say former Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers player Aldon Smith is back in a California jail after violating a condition of his bail.

Online records show the 28-year-old Smith is being held Sunday in San Francisco County Jail on $500,000 bond. A message seeking comment from his attorney, Joshua Bentley, was not immediately returned.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Nancy Crowley tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Smith was booked Friday for violating a condition of his electronic monitoring while on bail. It’s his third arrest in two months.

Hidden behind the roller-coaster start that Giancarlo Stanton has had is an exceptional stretch by Aaron Judge. After a slow start, Judge has rattled off an 11-game hit streak, pushing his batting average over .340. New York sits in third place in the AL East after dropping five of its past seven games against division foes. The Yankees had a .579 win percentage against the AL East in 2017, its best intra-division record since 2009 (.625). — McCarthy

The Cubs had a much-hyped starting rotation coming into the season, but the first two weeks of the season were forgetful for the starting five. The Cubs’ rotation ranks 27th in ERA, last in WHIP and 29th in walks per nine innings. The failings have been a group effort, as Kyle Hendricks is the only starter on the team with an ERA under 4.00 through the first three turns in the rotation. — Ken Woolums, ESPN Stats & Information

Mayfield, the prolific passer from Oklahoma, is not very likely to find his way to the Giants, as the expectation (at least here) is that they will bypass a quarterback in the first round to take an immediate impact-making player at another position. The Giants are doing their due diligence on all the top-level prospects and will bring every one of them in for visits. They played host last week to defensive end Bradley Chubb and will also bring into the building Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen and Josh Allen, the other top-rated quarterbacks.

After eating dinner Sunday night with members of the coaching staff, Barkley and Mayfield will spend most of the day Monday at the Giants’ facility, meeting with coaches and front-office personnel. Later in the day, Mayfield will make the short ride from East Rutherford, N.J, to Florham Park to meet with the Jets.
