Jose Fernandez allowed three runs (none earned) in seven innings, taking home the no-decision as the Marlins lost to the Nationals on Wednesday night.

Fernandez allowed four hits, walked none, and struck out 10. The only blemish came on Jayson Werth's game-tying three-run home run in the sixth inning, which was set up by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia's throwing error. As all three runs were unearned, Fernandez lowered his ERA to 2.66. He now has 33 strikeouts in 23 2/3 innings. Fernandez will face the Braves in his next start.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Steven Matz (elbow) "was seriously considering surgery, and maybe even leaning that way, before a meeting with the Mets brass."

Clayton Kershaw (back) received an epidural Wednesday and will be placed on the disabled list.

Well, that's a bummer. The Dodgers have revealed a specific diagnosis for Kershaw yet, and manager Dave Roberts isn't sure whether the left-hander will be ready to return when his 15 days are up. It appears the hope is that he'll be ready to go immediately after the All-Star break, although we'll just have to see how Kershaw recovers from his lower back injury. It's obviously a massive blow to the Dodgers and to fantasy owners even if his absence is relatively brief. The Dodgers have yet to decide who will start in Kershaw's place on Friday.

Shi Davidi writes of Aaron Sanchez that "the talk now (is) that he may be strong enough to hang in as a starter all year long."

The Blue Jays have said previously that Sanchez will move to the bullpen at some point this season in an effort to keep his workload down, and just two weeks ago manager John Gibbons reiterated that stance. However, Sanchez has been so good as a starter that the club may be reconsidering things. It's possible they could ultimately just decide to skip and/or push back Sanchez a few times, although even if they did that the righty would still be looking at a large innings increase. He threw only 92 1/3 innings last season and is currently on pace for 213 1/3 frames this year. It's obviously a situation for fantasy owners to monitor closely.

Yasiel Puig (knee) is back in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday.

Puig was removed from Wednesday's game with a minor knee contusion, but he's fine. He's in right field and batting sixth against Zach Davies and the Brewers.

A Braves official told Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports that the club is "99.9 percent" sure they will not trade Julio Teheran before the deadline.

The 99.9 percent number came after the official said outright that the team is "not trading Teheran." That the Braves are inclined to keep Teheran isn't a surprise, as he's under control cheaply through 2020 and the club would like him to start on Opening Day next season in their new stadium. However, he'll be sought after next month, regardless (the Red Sox are one team that's reportedly already inquired), and the Braves will surely be open to a deal if they get an offer to their liking.

Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports that the Rangers are showing interest in Matt Moore.

Topkin says that the Rangers are "already hot on Moore's trail and 3-4 others are expected to join the pursuit." Moore has rebounded after a seven-start stretch where he put up a 7.71 ERA, posting a 2.36 ERA over his last four outings while striking out a batter per inning. The lefty is a wild card given his inconsistent results since returning from Tommy John surgery, but he makes sense as a potential lightning-in-a-bottle type acquisition given his upside. The Rays have three club options on Moore starting in 2017.

The Giants will forgo the DH and have Madison Bumgarner bat in his start in Oakland on Thursday.

If the Giants really thought batting Bumgarner in a game in Oakland were a smart play, it'd probably make more sense to actually let him DH once. By forgoing the DH while he's pitching, it means they'll be pinch-hitting for the pitcher after he leaves. On the other hand, it is Bumgarner in Oakland, so he's a threat to go eight or nine innings anyway. Bumgarner is hitting .175/.261/.350 with two homers in 40 at-bats this year.

Junior Guerra was magnificent in a 7-0 Brewers win over the Dodgers on Wednesday, firing eight scoreless innings while allowing only two hits and two walks.

He struck out seven batters. Guerra improved his record to 5-1 and is now sitting on a 3.25 ERA. He has 60 strikeouts and 21 walks in 69 1/3 innings across 11 starts. The 31-year-old rookie has a challenging two-start week versus the Nationals and Cardinals coming up.

James Shields held the Twins to only one run over 6 2/3 innings of a 9-6 White Sox victory on Wednesday.

He struck out five and walked only one. The remaining five Twins' runs scored against the Sox' bullpen. This was Shields' first good game in more than a month. He is now 3-9 with a 5.85 ERA on the season. Tonight's win was his first with the White Sox. Shields had been absolutely demolished in his last five starts before today. His owners are surely glad to see him turn things around with a very nice game tonight. He has been one of the most durable and reliable pitchers in baseball for several years running and will hopefully return to being that guy again.

Brian McCann hit two home runs against the Rangers on Wednesday, including a ninth-inning three-run bomb to tie a game the Yankees later won 9-7.

Two batters later Didi Gregorius hit a walkoff homer. The home runs gave McCann 12 for the season. He finished the night 2-for-3 with two walks, three runs and 4 RBI. The great game boosted McCann's batting line to .229/.333/.439 with 32 runs and 34 RBI in 63 games. He no longer hits for a high batting average like he did for several years in Atlanta, but he hits for enough power to be one of the better fantasy catchers to own.

Updating a previous item, Yasiel Puig was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Brewers due to a minor knee contusion.

Puig was pulled from the contest after limping out a grounder in the eighth inning. While he previously dealt with a hamstring injury, it appears he has dodged a re-aggravation of that ailment. Following the loss, manager Dave Roberts said that he expects Puig to be in the lineup on Thursday.
