Braves place RHP Jackson Stephens (elbow) on injured list

The Atlanta Braves on Sunday placed right-hander Jackson Stephens on the 15-day injured list and recalled left-hander Dylan Dodd from Triple-A Gwinnett, with Dodd starting the regular-season finale against the Washington Nationals.

Stephens, who pitched two scoreless innings Friday against Washington, has inflammation in his right elbow. The move was retroactive to Saturday, with Stephens not eligible to return until mid-October if the Braves are able to advance to the World Series.

Stephens, 29, has pitched 12 innings for Atlanta and has a 3.00 ERA with five walks and 11 strikeouts in five appearances.

Dodd, 25, made his major league debut on April 4. He entered Sunday with a 2-2 record and 7.62 ERA, 11 walks and 14 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings over six games (all starts).

The Braves won their sixth straight National League East Division title and start their postseason in the NL Division Series, which begins on Oct. 7.
