  • Cubs going with Jorge Soler in RF in Game 3
    Jorge Soler is starting in right field and batting sixth for the Cubs on Friday in Game 3 of the World Series.

    Advice: It's his second straight start in right field after Chris Coghlan got the start in Game 1. $184 million outfielder Jason Heyward has been on the bench for all three contests so far and hasn't started since Game 5 of the NLCS. The Cubs' full lineup looks like this: Dexter Fowler CF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Ben Zobrist LF, Willson Contreras C, Soler RF, Javier Baez 2B, Addison Russell SS, Kyle Hendricks P. 35 minutes ago
  • White Sox claim Rymer Liriano off waivers
    White Sox claimed OF Rymer Liriano off waivers from the Brewers.

    Advice: Liriano missed the entire 2016 campaign after suffering multiple facial fractures when he was hit by a pitch in spring training. Still just 25, Liriano has issues making contact, but he's a former top prospect and is worth a gamble by the White Sox. 59 minutes ago

  • Joey Gallo tweaks hamstring in winter ball
    Joey Gallo could return to Texas to be evaluated after straining his left hamstring in the Venezuelan Winter League on Thursday.

    Advice: It doesn't appear at this point to be an injury worth worrying about, but rest assured the Rangers will hold him out of action for a while if there's any risk at all. Gallo has been playing first base in Venezuela, a position he's seen little time at in the states. Today, 10:24 am

  • Shin-Soo Choo could be used as DH in 2017
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels has indicated that Shin-Soo Choo could see lots of time in the designated hitter spot next season in an effort to keep him healthy.

    Advice: "I’d prefer not to have a set DH," Daniels said. "Some of it is going to depend on health and what all we do. I think [Choo] takes a lot of pride in going out there defensively, but we need his bat in the lineup. That’s the priority." Choo made four trips to the disabled list in 2016, playing in only 48 games. He hasn't rated well in defensive metrics the last few seasons, anyway, so putting his bat in the DH spot to give him a better shot to stay on the field makes sense. Of course, a lot could depend on what the Rangers do this offseason, as Ian Desmond, Carlos Gomez and Carlos Beltran are all impending free agents. Today, 6:57 am
  • Yorman Rodriguez activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated OF Yorman Rodriguez from the 60-day disabled list.

  • Zack Cozart activated from 60-day DL
    Reds activated SS Zack Cozart from the 60-day disabled list.

    Advice: He's now back on the 40-man roster after his season ended prematurely due to soreness in his surgically-repaired right knee. Cozart is expected to be shopped in trades this winter, with the Mariners looking like a probable landing spot after they discussed the shortstop with the Reds at the deadline. Today, 5:55 am

  • Soler expected to be in lineup for Game 2
    Jorge Soler is expected to be in the starting lineup for Game 2 of the World Series against the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: Chris Coghlan got the start over Jason Heyward in Game 1 and went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts. Now Cubs manager Joe Maddon will give Soler a shot. The 24-year-old is hitless in eight at-bats this postseason. Wednesday, 10:40 am
