    Advice: Davis exited Saturday's game with a Grade 1 groin strain, but Jason Beck of MLB.com writes that he seemed "upbeat" during Wednesday's workout. Still, the Tigers aren't expected to make a decision on his status for the ALDS until Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis (groin) still questionable for ALDS
    Rajai Davis (groin) is feeling improvement, but still needs to do more baseball work before the Tigers decide on his status for the ALDS against the Orioles.

    Advice: Davis exited Saturday's game with a Grade 1 groin strain and has been receiving daily treatment since, but the real test will be doing baseball activities. The Tigers could still put him on the roster even if he's not a full-go for Game 1. A final decision should come on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) not on Wild Card roster
    Michael Morse (oblique) is not on the Giants' roster for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Pirates.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, as Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Morse was "doubtful" to play. The 32-year-old hasn't played since August 31 with a strained left oblique and his status is in question even if the Giants play far into October. Rotoworld.com

  • Adam Dunn says he still plans to retire
    Adam Dunn acknowledged after the Athletics' loss to the Royals in the Wild Card Game on Tuesday that he still plans to retire.

    Advice: "That's probably it," said Dunn, who waited 14 seasons and 2,001 career games to get to the playoffs, the longest such streak of any active player. The 34-year-old didn't make an appearance in Tuesday's Wild Card Game, but he has no regrets. "Not at all," said Dunn. "Let's not make a bigger deal out of it. I love Bob [Melvin]. He's one of the best managers I've ever played for. He's as good as there is out there. You wish the best for a guy like that. He's awesome. Awesome." If this is the end for Dunn, he'll finish with 462 career home runs, tying him for 35th on the all-time list. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Moss' two homers not enough for A's
    Brandon Moss had a two-run homer and a three-run shot in Tuesday's loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Moss did all he could, getting the A's on board with a two-run blast in the first inning before putting them ahead with a three-run dinger in the sixth. He also drew a walk in one of his six plate appearances. It wasn't enough in the back-and-forth game, though, as the Royals ultimately prevailed in extras. Moss had just two longballs since the beginning of August before smacking a pair Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Crisp leaves game with hamstring injury
    Coco Crisp left Tuesday's game against the Royals with a right hamstring injury.

    Advice: Crisp tweaked his hamstring on a swing in the top of the 11th. He took the field for the bottom of the frame but decided he couldn't go. It's an ailment that could conceivably keep him out a while if the A's advance, but more should be known about his status after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Gutierrez could return to Mariners
    Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik said Tuesday that the club will considering re-signing Franklin Gutierrez to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Gutierrez didn't play at all this season after being diagnosed with ankylosing spondylitis. He's averaged just 58 games played per season from 2011-13 due to a variety of health issues but isn't ready to call it a career. "He's in Florida, working out. He has some interest in coming back next year. We're going to talk to him and we'll see what happens," Zduriencik said. "He left in a good frame of mind. We'll have to see where it's at, but he's spoken to our guys more than once about his desire in coming back next year. It would be as a non-roster player." Rotoworld.com

  • Morse (oblique) 'doubtful' for WC roster
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Michael Morse (oblique) is "doubtful" to be on the club's National League Wild Card roster.

    Advice: There had been a possibility of him being on there as a potential pinch-hitter, but even that is looking unlikely. Morse has been battling a strained left oblique all month and it's looking like he might not be much of a factor this postseason even if the Giants advance. Rotoworld.com

  • Dustin Ackley to see specialist for ankle
    Dustin Ackley will visit a specialist to have his left ankle examined.

    Advice: Ackley dealt with bone spurs in the ankle down the stretch. Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik doesn't think the outfielder will need surgery, but obviously more will be known after the exam. Ackley finished the season batting .245/.293/.398 with 14 homers and 65 RBI over 143 games. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Hamilton has taken batting practice, thrown long toss, and run the bases without issue each of the last two days in Anaheim. He's played in just one game for the Angels since September 4 due to shoulder, chest, and rib cage injuries, but look for him to be in the starting lineup on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Fuld starting in LF, batting 2nd in WC game
    Sam Fuld will start in left field and bat second in Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Royals.

    Advice: Athletics manager Bob Melvin has clearly prioritized defense in this one, though it's a little odd to see Fuld batting second. Coco Crisp will bat leadoff and play center field and will be followed by Fuld, Josh Donaldson 3B , Brandon Moss DH, Josh Reddick RF, Brett Lowrie SS, Stephen Vogt 1B, Geovany Soto C, and Eric Sogard 2B.

  • Carlos Beltran undergoes right elbow surgery
    Carlos Beltran underwent surgery Tuesday to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his right elbow.

    Advice: Beltran is six weeks away from hitting and throwing and 12 weeks away from playing in a game, so he should be ready for spring training. The 37-year-old attempted to play through the pain this season, but ended up with a career-low .703 OPS. Now that the issue has been taken care of, he'll make for a solid bounceback candidate in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Hamilton to face live pitching Tuesday
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder, chest, rib cage) is slated to face live pitching Tuesday.

    Advice: Hamilton has been limited to just one game since September 4 due to right shoulder, chest, and rib cage injuries, but he's confident he'll start in left field for Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday. The veteran outfielder has received a whopping 12 cortisone shots over the past couple of weeks to deal with the injuries. Rotoworld.com

  • Gattis could play 140 games between C/LF
    Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez didn't rule out the possibility that Evan Gattis could play 140 games next season between left field and catcher.

    Advice: Christian Bethancourt is considered the catcher of the future for Atlanta, so Gonzalez will have to get creative to find regular playing time for Gattis. While playing left field is an option, he would be a huge liability defensively. Rotoworld.com

It all adds up to a .234/.334/.438 line with 25 home runs and 81 RBI in 2014. Rotoworld.com
