Andre Ethier has been sent back to Los Angeles to have his left ankle examined by Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

He hasn't recovered as hoped from his sprained ankle, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admits that he's worried the outfielder might not be available for the first round of the playoffs. Ethier, who hasn't started a game since September 13, ran the bases before Tuesday's game but looked tentative doing so. More will obviously be known about his status following the exam.

Reds fired manager Bryan Price.

And pitching coach Mack Jenkins will follow him out the door. Price takes the fall for a Reds team that has opened the season with a dreadful 3-15 record and -46 run differential, both worst in the major leagues. Price didn't have a winning season in his four-plus years in Cincinnati, though he also never had a very good roster. Jim Riggleman will take over as interim manager, Louisville manager Pat Kelly has been promoted to be the Reds' bench coach, and Pensacola pitching coach Danny Darwin is now on the major league staff.

Jose Berrios allowed zero runs on three hits in seven innings against the Indians on Wednesday in his native Puerto Rico.

The spotlight was squarely on Berrios coming into this game at Hiram Bithorn Stadium in Puerto Rico. Berrios grew up just a few miles away and pitched one of the best games of his career tonight. He struck out five, didn't walk anyone and allowed just three harmless singles. He matched opposing starter Carlos Carrasco zero-for-zero on the scoreboard through seven innings and both teams' bullpens were just as good as the starters. Neither team scored until the 14th inning. Berrios has a spectacular 1.63 ERA with 29 strikeouts and one walk after four starts.

Yoenis Cespedes went 2-for-5 and buried the Nationals with a grand slam in Wednesday's 11-5 victory.

He got two hits and scored twice in the same inning as the Mets put nine runs on the board in the eighth frame. Cespedes' grand slam off reliever A.J. Cole capped off the inning and put the game out of reach. The Mets have one of the best records in baseball even though Cespedes hasn't hit much prior to today. He has a .217 batting average and a .280 on-base percentage. He has found a way to be useful though by generating 17 RBI already.

Freddie Freeman exited Wednesday's game with the Phillies after being hit in the left wrist by a pitch.

It's the same left wrist that caused Freeman to miss significant time in 2017. He was replaced by pinch-runner Charlie Culberson. We'll certainly update you when we know more about the severity of the injury.

Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's loss to the Mets.

He clubbed a three-run bomb in the first inning, then popped a solo shot in the final frame. Unfortunately many of Zimmerman's fantasy owners had him on their benches for this game due to his brutally bad first three weeks of the season. Even after tonight's outburst he still has a paltry .161/.235/.371 triple slash with three homers and 10 RBI. Hopefully this excellent game marks the end of his slump.

Matt Olson delivered a walk-off single Wednesday as the Athletics defeated the White Sox 12-11 in extra innings.

Olson had a great day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with two doubles, two walks and three RBI. The A’s were down by as many as five early in the game but overcame that deficit to win in extras. Olson’s game-winner came against James Shields with the bases loaded and two outs in the 14th inning. The 24-year-old is hitting a respectable .274 with three homers this year, though he’s also struck out an astounding 32 times in only 73 at-bats.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Kenley Jansen is in no danger of losing his closing job.

"I think we’re a ways from that," Roberts said. "I think he’s earned that. Sometimes with a guy like that with his track record, you’ve got to let him work things out." Jansen has not looked like himself to begin 2018, and he's given up six runs in his eight appearances after allowing just 10 in 2017. Period. Jansen should be fine in the long-term, but you can't help but wonder if the 30-year-old closer is completely healthy. It's a situation worth monitoring, at the very least.

Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters on Wednesday that he expects Shohei Ohtani (blister) to make his next scheduled start.

Ohtani was pulled on Tuesday after giving up three runs in two innings against Boston with a blister near the bottom of his right hand. That next "scheduled" start would be on Tuesday against the Astros. Scioscia also told reporters that Ohtani would be available as a designated hitter on Thursday, but was noncommittal on whether or not the two-way star would. Don't be surprised if the Angels are cautious with the 23-year-old, but it sounds like there won't be long-term ramifications with the injury.

Henry Shulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Jeff Samardzija (pectoral) could rejoin the Giants rotation on Friday.

Samardzija was originally reported as potentially pitching on Saturday, but Shulman hears that he could be bumped up one day with Derek Holland pitching on Saturday to slide between him and Johnny Cueto. Samardzija has yet to make his 2018 season debut because of the pectoral injury, and his return to the rotation would be most welcome considering how many other injuries San Francisco pitchers have suffered.

Dodgers placed LHP Rich Hill on the 10-day disabled list retroactive to April 15 with inflammation in his left middle finger.

Hill was lit up for seven runs in five innings in his last start, and while the injury might not be the only reason for the struggles, it likely didn't help. He'll miss at least one start with the injury; and more than likely two. The disabled list has been an all too familiar landing spot for Hill over the past few seasons, which is one of the reasons why the Dodgers have carried so much depth in their rotation.

Curtis Granderson hit a grand slam in the Blue Jay's rout of the Royals on Wednesday.

The Grandy man hit his slam in the bottom of the eighth inning against Justin Grimm. He also singled, and he drew two walks. What a sensational start to the season it's been for the veteran, who looks like a completely different player than the one we saw in the playoffs against the Dodgers. His .957 OPS is obviously unsustainable, but there's more juice left in Granderson than some might have anticipated.
