Sonny Gray was brilliant in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Marlins, surrendering just one run while striking out 11 over seven innings.

Gray allowed just three hits on the afternoon. The lone run to score on his watch came when Dee Gordon scored on a wild pitch in the fourth inning. After failing to strike out more than four in any of his first three starts, Gray has fanned 19 in his last two outings (covering 13 innings). He will look to build on Wednesday's brilliance when he carries his 3.34 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 28/8 K/BB ratio into a road date with the Indians next time he takes to the mound.

Edinson Volquez surrendered three runs on seven hits over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Volquez pitched fine in this one, but a lights-out Sonny Gray prevented him from picking up a win. The veteran right-hander struck out two and walked two on the afternoon, with two of the three runs on his line coming home on a two-run home run by Khris Davis in the first inning. Volquez will bring a 4.82 ERA and 1.67 WHIP into a home showdown with the Phillies next time he toes the rubber.

Pablo Sandoval (knee, illness) is expected to play in rehab games with Triple-A Pawtucket on both Wednesday and Thursday.

Sandoval is set to play seven innings on Wednesday and a full nine innings on Thursday. He has been fighting through illness during his rehab assignment, but looks to be very close to a return to the big league club now that he has been slated for back-to-back minor league rehab showings. The veteran third baseman has not played since April 24 due to a right knee strain.

Nationals recalled OF Brian Goodwin from Triple-A Syracuse.

Goodwin -- who was just shuttled down to Triple-A on Tuesday -- receives the call back to the bigs due to Chris Heisey being placed on the disabled list with a right bicep rupture. In 10 games with the Nats this season, the 26-year-old Goodwin has hit a mere .188/.235/.313. There is no fantasy upside with this move.

Nationals placed OF Chris Heisey on the 10-day disabled list with a right bicep rupture.

Ouch. As of yet, there is no timetable for Heisey's return, but this is one that could potentially cost him a large chunk of the season. In 47 at-bats prior to suffering the injury, the veteran outfielder was slashing just .128/.180/.213. Count this as a depth blow for the Nationals.
May 24 - 6:02 PM

Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list.

A bone bruise on his right wrist sidelined d'Arnaud in early May. With his activation, he will be available to pinch-hit during Wednesday's game against the Padres -- and is expected to start on Thursday. Prior to going down injured, the backstop was hitting .203/.288/.475 with four homers and 16 RBI across 22 games played.
May 24 - 5:51 PM

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said that Nick Castellanos will receive the next two days off as a "reset."

Castellanos has been having a rough time at the plate over his last three games, failing to pick up a hit in 11 at-bats while striking out six times in that space. Andrew Romine will be starting at third base in his place against the Astros on Wednesday and is hitting seventh.
May 24 - 5:41 PM

Lonnie Chisenhall is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds due to what the team has termed a "possible head injury."

With Chisenhall sitting, Daniel Robertson draws the start in right field. Just how long Chisenhall might be out of action is not yet known, but this could just be a precautionary sidelining.
