Worth noting

• Gonzalez said backup shortstop Paul Janish will likely require surgery in the offseason to repair the dislocated shoulder he suffered diving for a ball in the ninth inning last Tuesday. The Braves are still hopeful, however, that Janish will be able to get healthy enough to be available for the National League Division Series, should they advance that far.

• The Braves announced right-hander Greg Ross was traded to the Tigers as the player to be named later to complete the deal that sent utility infielder Jeff Baker to Atlanta on Aug. 31. Ross, 22, was the Braves' 18th-round pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft and had a 4.60 ERA in 131 innings at Class A Rome this season.
