  • MRI on Profar's shoulder 95 pct. clean
    Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Thursday that an MRI on Jurickson Profar (shoulder) was "95 percent clean."

    Advice: Good news for Profar, who missed the entire 2014 season due to a right shoulder injury. The Rangers shut the 21-year-old infielder down in September after he suffered multiple setbacks, but Daniels hopes that he'll be cleared in January. Still, he remains a big question going into 2015.

  • Brandon Crawford leads Giants to Game 5 win
    Brandon Crawford went 2-for-4 and drove home three runs on Sunday, leading the Giants to a 5-0 victory over the Royals in Game 5 of the World Series.

    Advice: Crawford came through with an RBI groundout in the second inning to plate Hunter Pence and get the Giants on the board. He would later add another RBI with a two-out single off James Shields in the fifth inning to score Pablo Sandoval. Crawford then completed the Giants scoring for the evening with a RBI bloop single to left field that scored Juan Perez in a three-run uprising in the eighth. He’s now hitting .250 with a homer and a team-leading eight RBI in the postseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Panik logs 2 doubles, 2 RBI, 2 runs in Game 4
    Joe Panik had a big night in the Giants' Game 4 win against the Royals on Saturday, doubling twice with two RBI and two runs scored in four at-bats.

    Advice: Panik was hitting only .154 (2-for-13) entering the night, but contributed in a big way in Game 4. He led off the fifth inning with a double, chasing Jason Vargas from the game, and later scored. His sixth-inning sacrifice bunt moved two runners into scoring position and both wound up scoring. In the seventh, he knocked in a run with a double and scored on a Hunter Pence double. Panik has been a very pleasant surprise for the Giants since taking over second base in late June. Rotoworld.com

  • Raul Mondesi excels in Fall League victory
    Royals prospect Raul Mondesi had a strong day at the dish in Friday's victory over Mesa in Arizona Fall League action, going 2-for-5 with a pair of runs scored.

    Advice: Mondesi also swiped his third base of the Fall season in the contest. The 19-year-old struggled at High-A Wilmington in 2014, slashing just .211/.256/.354 with eight homers, 33 RBI and 17 stolen bases in his 110 games. He's expected to return to Wilmington for the start of the 2015 season and remains firmly entrenched in the Royals future plans. Rotoworld.com

  • Pirates acquire Justin Sellers from Indians
    Pirates acquired INF Justin Sellers from the Indians for cash considerations.

    Advice: The 28-year-old utility infielder owns a troublesome career slash of .198/.280/.294 over 99 big league contests. He'll be nothing more than additional depth in the infield for the Pirates. Rotoworld.com

  • Alcides Escobar sparks Royals to Game 3 win
    Alcides Escobar went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored, sparking the Royals offense in Friday’s 3-2 victory over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.

    Advice: Escobar jumped on the very first pitch of the night from Tim Hudson, lining a leadoff double into the left field corner. He advanced to third on a ground ball and came around to score on a ground out off the bat of Lorenzo Cain to give the Royals an early advantage. The speedy shortstop then delivered a one-out single in the sixth inning which started a two-run uprising that proved to be the difference in the contest. Rotoworld.com

  • Miguel Sano will not play winter ball in 2014
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan confirmed Friday that Miguel Sano will not play winter ball in the Dominican Republic this season.

    Advice: The top prospect hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery, but the doctors do not want him to play. He has been doing baseball-related drills at the Twins extended spring training complex and is getting healthier by the day, but the Twins still want to take things cautiously with their prized young slugger.

  • Addison Russell being shut down in AFL
    The Cubs are shutting down Addison Russell from the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Russell is healthy, but the Cubs feel like he has played a full season. The 20-year-old is one of the top shortstop prospects in the majors, but he saw some time at second base during the Arizona Fall League in an effort to increase his versatility. It's not clear where he'll fit in 2015, but he's on the fast track to the big leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Indians expected to exercise option on Aviles
    The Indians are expected to exercise their 2015 option on Mike Aviles.

    Advice: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said a few weeks ago that he was undecided on Aviles and his $3.5 million option, but Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the team is leaning toward bringing him back. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 last season but appeared at six different positions and offers a veteran presence. The Indians don't officially have to make a decision on the 33-year-old until three days after the end of the World Series. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs' Russell plays second base in AFL
    Cubs prospect Addison Russell has played second base in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Cubs president Theo Epstein said earlier this month that Russell would prepare to play multiple positions and the 20-year-old made his first start at second base last Monday. "Everything's going good," said Russell. "I missed nine weeks so not only the at-bats, I need to get some reps at short and possibly at second. That's what I'm working on right now." The Cubs still have Starlin Castro at shortstop, so they are simply keeping their options open. The logjam could ultimately be resolved with a trade. Rotoworld.com

  • Nix replaces Colon on Royals' WS roster
    Jayson Nix has replaced Christian Colon on the Royals' roster for the World Series.

    Advice: Colon logged two plate appearances between the ALDS and ALCS while serving as a backup infielder. Nix was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in late August and appeared in seven games for the Royals down the stretch. This is the Royals' only roster change for the World Series against the Giants. Rotoworld.com
