Braves reassigned LHP Alex Wood to minor league camp.

Wood, last year's second-round pick, posted a 1.29 ERA and 3/3 K/BB ratio over seven innings of work this spring. The 22-year-old had a 2.22 ERA and 52/14 K/BB ratio in 13 starts last season with Class A Rome and isn't far off from making an impact in the majors.

Sonny Gray (forearm) will start on Wednesday against the Angels.

Gray has been on the shelf since early August with inflammation in his right forearm, but he's been throwing off a mound for a couple weeks and is ready to test things out in a game. He's expected to go only 1-2 innings in the outing and can be safely avoided in fantasy leagues for the final week.

A.J. Pollock (groin) told Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale that he thought he was "going to feel much better" when he ran on Friday.

Pollock was hoping to make a late-season return from a strained groin that he suffered a little over two weeks ago, but this little setback should effectively end his campaign. "He wants to get back in there," Hale said, "and obviously we’re not going to let him run the bases or get in a game until he can run 100 percent without pain."

Andy Slater of 940-AM WINZ reports that Jose Fernandez was killed early Sunday morning in a boating accident.

He was one of three people killed in a crash off of Miami Beach. The Marlins have cancelled Sunday's game against the Braves following this unfathomably tragic news. Fernandez turned just 24 at the end of July and, of course, had already been through plenty with what he experienced in defecting from Cuba. Our thoughts go out to Fernandez's family and the Marlins during this horrific tragedy.

Maikel Franco homered in his third straight game Saturday, and the Phillies outlasted the Mets 10-8.

For the fourth game in a row, Franco had two hits, and for the third straight game one of those hits left the yard. He finished 2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored on Saturday, with his three-run jack in the first inning accounting for all his runs driven in. He's finishing a relatively disappointing season on a high note, as the 24-year-old now has 25 homers and 87 RBI to go with a .253/.304/.433 line overall.

Clayton Kershaw shut down the Rockies for seven scoreless innings on three hits as the Dodgers won 14-1 on Saturday.

He struck out six and didn't walk anybody. It was another vintage Kershaw outing. He improved his record to 12-3 with a remarkable 1.65 ERA. He has punched out 168 batters and walked only 10 in 142 innings. He missed a couple months to a back injury but has returned with a vengeance. With the Dodgers likely to clinch a division title before his next turn, it remains to be seen if Kershaw will get another start in the regular season.

Joey Votto went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and three walks as the Reds downed the Brewers 6-1 on Saturday.

Votto took Brewers starter Taylor Jungmann deep in the first inning for the two-run dong, his 26th of the season. The 33-year-old is hitting .320/.433/.533 with 89 RBI and 94 runs scored -- amazing after he hit .252 with an .832 OPS in the first half -- and he ranks among the league leaders in a number of offensive categories. It's a shame the Reds haven't been able to do more during the height of his brilliance.

Josh Reddick went 3-for-4 with a grand slam, drove in five runs and scored three times to lead the Dodgers over the Rockies on Saturday.

He added a walk as well. The Dodgers were already ahead 10-0 when he hit the grand slam but they all count the same in fantasyland. He has been playing nearly every day of late and has a .281/.346/.407 slash line combined between his games with Oakland and Los Angeles this season. The home run was his 10th of the season to go with 37 RBI and 53 runs scored in 388 at-bats.
Sep 25 - 12:36 AM

Dee Gordon went 2-for-3 with three stolen bases and two runs scored in the Marlins' 6-4 win over the Braves on Saturday.

Gordon had no fear for Braves catcher Anthony Recker, walking and stealing second base in the first inning, stealing third base in the third inning and stealing second again an inning later. The three steals give him 26 steals in 74 games this year. His .257/.298/.320 line leaves something to be desired, but the 28-year-old's speed is a fantasy difference-maker and with a full year to work with in 2017, he should once again be among the cream of the crop at second base.
Sep 25 - 12:28 AM

Jayson Werth went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored, and the Nationals beat the Pirates 6-1 on Saturday.

The win, coupled with the Mets' loss to the Phillies, handed the Nationals their third NL East crown in the last five years. The 37-year-old has had a hand in that, hitting 20 homers with 68 RBI and 82 runs scored while batting .249/.337/.422 in 137 games.
Sep 25 - 12:03 AM

Jose Quintana held the Indians to a single run in six innings during Saturday's 8-1 victory.

He struck out only two batters, walked three and gave up six hits to earn the win. He was relieved after throwing an inefficient 103 pitches in his six frames. He advances to 13-11 with a 3.21 ERA after 31 starts. Quintana has recorded 174 strikeouts versus 48 walks in 202 innings. He has been amazingly consistent throughout his five seasons. He has a career 46-45 record and 3.41 ERA in 945 innings.
Sep 24 - 11:58 PM

Wade Miley struck out 11 and fell an out shy of a complete game Saturday, allowing a lone run in the Orioles' 6-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Miley gave up seven hits without allowing a walk, and the 11 strikeouts were a season high. An RBI double by Brandon Drury with two outs in the ninth ended Miley's night just shy of the complete game, but it was still an impressive turn for the 29-year-old. Miley is 9-13 with a 5.40 ERA in 29 starts overall, and he'll make his final start of the year Friday against the Yankees.
