Stephen Strasburg unlikely to be ready in time for NLDS (Big League Stew)

If the Washington Nationals are hoping to move past the National League Division Series for the first time since the franchise relocated, they are going to have to do so without pitcher Stephen Strasburg. While Strasburg is working his way back from an elbow injury, general manager Mike Rizzo said Tuesday it would be “unlikely” the pitcher would be ready in time for the NLDS. The team never gave a firm timetable for Strasburg’s return when he suffered the injury following a Sep. 7 start. While the club didn’t rule out the postseason, Strasburg was hesitant to make any definitive statements about his return.

Emotional Marlins aim to dent Mets' hopes again (The Associated Press)

Don Mattingly was a New York Yankees minor-leaguer when Thurman Munson died in a plane crash on Aug. 2, 1979. Munson was the Yankees' 32-year-old star catcher -- a seven-time All-Star, a three-time Gold Glove winner, a two-time World Series champion and a former Rookie of the Year and American League MVP. The Miami Marlins, the team Mattingly now manages, suffered a horrific tragedy of their early own early Sunday morning when 24-year-old pitcher Jose Fernandez -- already a two-time All-Star -- died in a high-speed boat crash.

Cards need Wainwright to step up vs. Reds (The Associated Press)

A 15-2 rout at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds on Monday represented more than a loss for the St. Louis Cardinals. It took away the Cardinals' ability to win their way to the playoffs without requiring help from others, putting them into a more precarious spot for the regular season's final six days. St. Louis (81-75) enters the Tuesday night matchup with Cincinnati a game behind the San Francisco Giants (82-74) for the National League's second wild-card spot.
