Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Zimmerman had an MRI taken of his hamstring on Saturday, and the Nationals obviously didn't like what they saw. The extent of the injury is still unknown, but it was at least serious enough that the team decided to sit him down for two weeks. Anthony Rendon was recalled from Double-A Harrisburg to take his roster spot, and Zimmerman owners should run out and grab the top prospect in Zim's stead.

Carlos Gomez went 3-for-4 and delivered a clutch three-run home run to lead the Rangers over the Brewers 8-5 on Wednesday.

His blast in the eighth inning broke open a tie game against his former team. Gomez has played much better since joining the Rangers a month ago. He is batting .232 with 13 homers and 53 RBI overall. His 18 stolen bases are quite helpful despite his struggles with the bat.

CC Sabathia said that he hopes to continue pitching after the 2017 season.

"I know I want to pitch after next year, but I haven't thought about where or what. Hopefully it will be here. We'll see," Sabathia said. His current contract is set to expire at the end of the 2017 season. He will be 37 years old at that juncture. Despite some rocky moments, the veteran southpaw has done a nice job transitioning from a thrower into a pitcher as his stuff has diminished. In 172 1/3 innings this season, Sabathia holds a 4.02 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 144/63 K/BB ratio.

Seung Hwan Oh said he felt renewed discomfort in his groin in the ninth inning Wednesday.

Oh was pulled after trying to field a comebacker off the bat of Jose Peraza in the top of the ninth inning. He spun quickly to throw to first base after picking up the ball and did not look comfortable in that process. This could be the end of the road for the impressive South Korean rookie, assuming the Cardinals can't climb into a National League Wild Card spot and advance to the NLDS. They fell 2-1 to the lowly Reds on Wednesday night in St. Louis. Kevin Siegrist may be called on for save chances over these final four regular-season tilts.

Anthony DeSclafani worked six innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a win over the Cardinals.

The only run St. Louis managed the entire night came on a doubleplay groundout in the bottom of the fifth inning by pinch-hitter Matt Adams, scoring Aledmys Diaz from third base. DeSclafani struck out three and walked two, yielding six total hits. He finishes the 2016 regular season with a promising 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP, and 105/30 K/BB ratio in 123 1/3 innings.

Francisco Liriano turned in a gem on Wednesday, striking out 10 batters while firing 6 1/3 shutout frames, but he had to settle for a no-decision against the Orioles.

He left the game with a 2-0 lead but watched as his closer coughed up the lead and the game in the ninth inning. Perhaps most impressively for him, he issued only one free pass on the night. This is the guy who is second in the major leagues in walks allowed this year. After putting up a 5.46 ERA with the Pirates he has registered a 2.92 ERA since being dumped on the Blue Jays. Overall he is 8-13 with a 4.69 ERA in 29 starts and two relief appearances. He has 168 strikeouts and 85 walks in 163 innings.

John Jaso hit for the cycle in Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Cubs.

Jaso singled to lead off the third inning, socked a three-run home run in the fourth, notched an RBI double in the fifth and polished off his cycle with an RBI triple in the seventh. He finished the game 4-for-4 with five RBI at the dish. It was the first-ever cycle at PNC Park. For the season as a whole, Jaso is hitting .267/.348/.407 with seven homers and 40 RBI across 371 at-bats.

Jake Arrieta was hit hard in Wednesday's 8-4 loss to the Pirates, yielding seven earned runs on 10 hits over five innings.

Arrieta has turned in a strong 2016 campaign on the whole, but his final start of the regular season left much to be desired. The Pirates burned the ace right-hander for a run in the first inning, then posted three-run frames in the fourth and fifth to drive him from the game. Arrieta finishes out the season holding a 3.10 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 190/76 K/BB ratio over 197 1/3 innings. The postseason now awaits as the Cubs attempt to bring a cathartic end to their title drought.

Hyun-Jin Ryu underwent an arthroscopic left elbow debridement procedure on Wednesday.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles. Prior to the procedure, Ryu had been pitching in simulated games as he attempted to work his way back from left elbow tendinitis. He is expected to be ready for the start of the 2017 season, but there's obviously nothing guaranteed here. The 29-year-old southpaw has made just one appearance over the last two years due to various shoulder, groin, and elbow injuries.

Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that manager Mike Matheny is safe.

There is near-constant clamoring from fans (and some in the media) about Matheny's lineups, bullpen management, and in-game strategy, but the Cardinals' higher-ups seem content with the fifth-year manager. "Mike’s done a really good job for us," DeWitt said. "There’s no thought that we’re going to go in any different direction." Matheny has guided the Cardinals to the postseason every year on the job, and they're in Wild Card contention here in late September. Matheny's overall managerial record since taking over for Hall of Fame skipper Tony La Russa is 457-348.

Albert Pujols (foot) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the A's.

Pujols has not played since Monday due to discomfort in his foot related to plantar fasciitis. Mike Trout will serve as the Angels' designated hitter on Wednesday while C.J. Cron mans first base. It is possible the veteran Pujols won't play again this season, but that has not yet been determined for certain.

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said that Neftali Feliz (arm) is almost certainly done for the 2016 season.

No surprise here. Feliz was just recently cleared to throw off of flat ground as he continues to rehab from a bout of right arm discomfort. With mere days remaining in the regular season, a return to the major league mound would have been miraculous. The 28-year-old right-hander finishes out the 2016 season holding a 3.52 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 61/21 K/BB ratio over 53 2/3 frames.
