Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Pablo Sandoval (elbow) was pain-free Tuesday and the club is feeling more optimism that the third baseman will be ready for Opening Day.

Sandoval will do some light work Wednesday, including hitting off a tee and playing catch. He shouldn't be penciled into the Opening Day lineup until he shows he can get through a few throwing sessions with no issues, but he's certainly trending in the right direction.

Joe Musgrove was excellent on Sunday afternoon in Houston, allowing just one run over seven innings in the Astros' 4-1 victory over the Angels.

The one run he gave up came on an RBI single up the middle by Rafael Ortega in the top of the fourth inning. Musgrove struck out four, didn't walk a batter, and scattered seven hits. The rookie right-hander now holds a 4.06 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, and 55/16 K/BB ratio over 62 innings this year. He'll finish the regular season with a road start against this same Angels squad.

Nelson Cruz was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Twins due to soreness in his left wrist.

The issue is believed to be minor. Cruz inflicted massive damage on the Twins before departing, smashing a pair of solo home runs in his first three at-bats. The Mariners should provide an update on his status after Sunday's game, but expect him to be listed as day-to-day.

Jose Bautista reached base four times and homered for the third time in four games in Sunday's win over the Yankees.

Bautista got the scoring going with a solo shot off of Michael Pineda in the fourth inning. He wound up reaching base in all four of his trips to the plate and has really heated things up of late with three multi-hit contests and a trio of home runs over his last five games.

Carlos Rodon put together the best outing of his career Sunday, recording 11 strikeouts over eight shutout innings in a 3-0 win over the Indians.

He walked three batters but surrendered only two singles on the day. Rodon has certainly flashed brilliance at times in his two big league seasons, but rarely has he put everything together as he did in this one. He had thrown 108 pitches through his eight frames, which is the only reason he didn't get a shot at his first shutout. Rodon will get the Twins on Friday to close out his regular season.

Bryce Harper departed Sunday's game against the Pirates with an apparent injury to his left hand.

Harper slid awkwardly into third base in the top of the third inning after Jung Ho Kang faked a tag and appeared to hurt his hand. He stayed in and wound up scoring a run but was then removed before the bottom of the frame. The Nationals should provide an update on Harper shortly.

Brandon Crawford (finger) is back in the Giants' lineup Sunday.

Crawford missed four games with a dislocated left pinkie, but he's ready to give it a go in this one. Crawford is at shortstop and batting seventh against Clayton Richard and the Padres. Brandon Belt and Angel Pagan are sitting out against the lefty, as the Giants have Buster Posey at first base and Gorkys Hernandez in center field.

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.
