Mariners signed RHP Felix Hernandez to a seven-year, $175 million contract extension.

The final step was a pre-signing physical on Tuesday afternoon. Details of the extension will be formally announced during a press conference on Wednesday afternoon, but CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the reported terms from last week remain the same. The new deal, which replaces the two years and $39.5 million remaining on King Felix's previous contract, will run through the 2019 season. There was a report over the weekend about a possible elbow issue, but it appears the matter was quickly resolved by the Mariners adding some protective language in the contract.

Gio Gonzalez allowed two runs in seven innings to earn a 7-3 win over the Braves on Wednesday.

He punched out eight batters against one walk in yet another gem outing for the veteran hurler. He yielded just three knocks in the contest, although two of them were solo homers by Freddie Freeman and Kurt Suzuki. Gonzalez made an adjustment in the middle of spring training that has propelled him to his best season since 2012, when he went 21-8 with a 2.89 ERA in his first season with the Nationals after coming over from the Athletics. This year Gonzalez is 15-7 with a 2.68 ERA and 1.13 WHIP after 30 starts. He has a 179/71 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 191 2/3 innings.

Blake Snell held the Cubs to two base hits in seven shutout frames to earn an 8-1 victory on Wednesday.

He struck out five batters while allowing just two singles and three walks in the gem outing. Snell has been maddeningly inconsistent this season but today's effort shows why he was so highly rated as a prospect. He improves to 4-6 with a 4.01 ERA and 1.34 WHIP after 22 starts. The 24-year-old has 105 strikeouts and 55 walks in 121 1/3 innings.

Orioles manager Buck Showalter said after Wednesday's game that Zach Britton will receive a PRP injection in his knee on Thursday.

The team will then reevaluate Britton 3-to-5 days later. Showalter said earlier in the day on Wednesday that there was a strong chance that the closer will be shut down for the rest of the 2017 campaign. With Baltimore all but eliminated from the playoffs, there's really no reason for Britton to pitch again. Brad Brach figures to handle any save opportunities that might arise the rest of the way.

Mike Moustakas went 3-for-4 and set a new Royals record by hitting his 37th home run of the season in a 15-5 win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

His sixth-inning blast off Carlos Ramirez broke the team record set by Steve Balboni way back in 1985. The most homers Moustakas had ever hit in a season before this year was 22 in 2015. The third baseman has a .275 batting average with 83 RBI and 73 runs in 564 plate appearances.

Chris Sale blanked the Orioles for eight innings and reached 300 strikeouts in Boston's 9-0 victory Wednesday.

Sale fanned 13 and allowed just four hits in one of his most dominant outings of the season. It was that last strikeout, of Ryan Flaherty in the eighth, that gave him 300, making him the first AL pitcher to reach that mark since Pedro Martinez in 1999. Martinez is the only other Red Sox pitcher ever to get there. Clayton Kershaw did fan 301 in 2015, but Sale will finish the season with the highest strikeout total of any pitcher since Randy Johnson had 334 in 2002.

Matt Moore threw six scoreless innings against Colorado in a 4-0 win on Wednesday.

Moore has had a very disappointing season for the Giants, but this was a nice reminder that his struggles are not due to a lack of talent. He did allow six hits and two walks, but he struck out six and was able to keep the Rockies off the scoreboard. He'll look to build on this start when he gets the ball against Arizona on Tuesday in what will be the southpaw's last start of 2017.

David Price could pitch in a save situation for the Red Sox on Wednesday night, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.

Craig Kimbrel and Addison Reed are both unavailable due to their recent usage. Price made his first relief appearance for the Red Sox on Sunday, throwing two scoreless innings with a pair of strikeouts.

Didi Gregorius hit his 25th home run of the season Wednesday in the Yankees' 11-3 rout of the Twins.

It was a three-run shot in the bottom of the fourth inning, capping off a six-run frame for the Bronx Bombers. Gregorius can now claim the highest single-season home run total of any shortstop in Yankees history. Derek Jeter hit 24 back in 1999.

Daniel Mengden fired seven scoreless innings Wednesday in the Athletics' 3-2 win over the Tigers.

Mengden threw the first shutout of his career in his last start Friday against the Phillies and he kept that theme intact Wednesday afternoon at Comerica Park. Detroit's offense managed seven hits against him, but six of those were singles and Mengden struck out four batters while issuing zero walks. The 24-year-old right-hander will bring a shiny 3.30 ERA and 1.07 WHIP (covering 30 innings) into his next start at home against the Mariners. He'll have some definite fantasy streaming appeal in that one.

Jimmy Nelson underwent successful surgery on his right shoulder and is expected to miss a "chunk" of the 2018 season, according to Brewers general manager David Stearns.

It was originally announced that the surgery could just be a "cleanup," but Nelson needed some of his labrum repaired, as it turned out. It's a potentially big blow not only to Nelson's 2018 prospects but perhaps even his career, as the history of pitchers coming back from labrum surgery is sketchy, at best. Obviously, it's a big bummer for a guy who had a big breakout this season.
Sep 20 - 4:35 PM

Giancarlo Stanton went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI in the Marlins' 9-2 defeat of the Mets on Wednesday.

Stanton hit an RBI single in the bottom of the fourth inning and then belted a two-run shot for his 56th home run of the season in the bottom of the eighth. He has 10 games left to reach the 60-homer benchmark and three of those games will be at Coors Field. Stanton also has three games at power-friendly Chase Field this weekend.
