  • David Ortiz snags Hank Aaron Award
    David Ortiz was named the American League's winner of the Hank Aaron Award.

    Advice: Handed out annually to the best offensive player in each league, the Hank Aaron Award gives Ortiz a nice little feather in the cap for what was a remarkable retirement campaign in 2016. Big Papi slashed a sturdy .315/.401/.620 with 38 homers and 127 RBI over 537 at-bats this past season. In the AL, his 38 homers tied for eighth-most, while his 127 RBI paced the league. Ortiz previously won the award in 2005. On the other side, Kris Bryant was named the winner of the Hank Aaron Award in the NL. Today, 3:25 pm

  • Kris Bryant wins Hank Aaron Award
    Kris Bryant was named the National League's winner of the Hank Aaron Award.

    Advice: The Hank Aaron Award is handed out annually to the best offensive player in each league. This past season, Bryant boasted a .292/.385/.554 triple-slash with 39 homers, 102 RBI and eight steals over 603 at-bats. His RBI total was good for sixth-best in the National League, while his 39 dingers were bested only by Chris Carter (41) and Nolan Arenado (41). David Ortiz was named the winner of the Hank Aaron Award in the AL. Today, 3:19 pm

  • Rangers right-hander Harrell outrighted
    Rangers sent RHP Lucas Harrell outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: Harrell's season came to an abbreviated end due to a right groin strain suffered in mid-August. Prior to being waylaid by injury, the 31-year-old reliever held a 4.21 ERA and 36/25 K/BB ratio in 47 innings between the Braves and Rangers. Today, 2:24 pm

  • Shawn Tolleson outrighted to Triple-A
    Rangers sent RHP Shawn Tolleson outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

    Advice: The less said about Tolleson's showing this past season, the better. He pitched to a dreadful 7.68 ERA and 1.73 WHIP over 36 1/3 innings, losing his closer's job in the process and eventually ending the season on the 60-day disabled list due to a back injury. Today, 2:19 pm

  • Willson Contreras to see bulk of series work
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Willson Contreras will likely start every World Series game not being pitched by Jon Lester.

    Advice: Lester, of course, generally has grizzled veteran David Ross serving as backstop in his outings. Maddon likes Contreras in this series because he believes Contreras can help keep the Indians from running too wild on the basepaths. The 24-year-old is catching Jake Arrieta and hitting seventh for Game 2 on Wednesday. Today, 2:13 pm
  • Hector Rondon not dealing with health concern
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that Hector Rondon's struggles this postseason are not due to an injury.

    Advice: Rondon missed about three weeks with a right triceps strain late in the summer, but it appears there is no injury concern here. In his most recent outing, the 28-year-old right-hander came on with two runners aboard and two outs in the seventh inning of Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday. The Cubs trailed 3-0 at the time and desperately needed to hold it right there. That wouldn't happen, as Rondon proceeded to surrender a three-run home run to Roberto Perez, essentially putting any real notion of a comeback to rest. He has surrendered runs in three of his six postseason appearances. Given that there is no injury here, Rondon should be available for the remainder of the World Series, though high-leverage work might not be in the cards in the immediate future. Today, 2:02 pm
  • WS Game 2 is a go in face of oncoming weather
    An MLB spokesman said Game 2 of the World Series is currently expected to be played as scheduled, with first pitch at 7:08 p.m. EST Wednesday, despite inclement weather in the forecast.

    Advice: The hope is that the heavier weather will hold off until after Game 2's completion, but the contest will still take place in a probable intermittent drizzle. A cold drizzle at that. As matters currently stand, the Cubs' Jake Arrieta will take the mound against the Indians' Trevor Bauer, with the Indians looking to jump out to a 2-0 series advantage. Should Game 2 be suspended at some point Wednesday night, it would resume during Thursday's scheduled travel day. Today, 1:45 pm
  • Bauer, Tomlin slated to start on short rest
    Indians manager Terry Francona said that should the World Series extend to six games, Trevor Bauer and Josh Tomlin will start again on short rest.

    Advice: The Indians plans on trotting Corey Kluber out in both the fourth and -- if need be -- the seventh game of the series. Neither Bauer nor Tomlin will be used to that herculean extent, but Francona plans on using them on short rest for Game 5 (Sunday) and Game 6 (Tuesday), respectively, should those games be necessary. First up, though, Bauer will start Game 2 on Wednesday night, opposed by the Cubs Jake Arrieta. Tomlin will take the ball for Game 3 when the series shifts to Wrigley Field on Friday. Kyle Hendricks will toe the mound for the Cubs in that one. Today, 1:10 pm
  • Corey Kluber to start Game 4 of World Series
    Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters on Wednesday that Corey Kluber will start Game 4 of the World Series against the Cubs.

    Advice: Kluber threw 88 pitches over six-plus scoreless innings in Tuesday's Game 1 victory. The early hook was partially made with Game 4 in mind. Kluber has never made a start on short rest in the regular season, but he's now slated to do it for the second time this postseason. He allowed two runs over five innings on short rest against the Blue Jays in the ALCS. Today, 12:54 pm
  • Carlos Santana in leadoff spot for Game 2
    Carlos Santana will hit out of the leadoff spot in Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rajai Davis hit leadoff and Santana hit fifth in Game 1 as the Indians used their standard arrangement against lefties with Jon Lester on the hill, but they are going back to their standard lineup against right-handers in Game 2. The full lineup versus Jake Arrieta: Santana DH, Jason Kipnis 2B, Francisco Lindor SS, Mike Napoli 1B, Jose Ramirez 3B, Lonnie Chisenhall RF, Coco Crisp LF, Tyler Naquin CF, Roberto Perez C. Trevor Bauer is slated to make the start for the Indians after an early exit in the ALCS due to a finger injury. Today, 12:14 pm
  • Weeks elects to become free agent
    Jemile Weeks has elected to become a free agent.

    Advice: Weeks chose free agency over an outright assignment to the minors. The 29-year-old missed most of the 2016 season due to a nagging knee injury and will look for a new opportunity elsewhere. Today, 12:12 pm
  • A's claim Soto off waivers from Cubs
    Athletics claimed LHP Giovanni Soto off waivers from the Cubs.

    Advice: Soto was designated for assignment by the Cubs over the weekend when Kyle Schwarber was activated from the 60-day disabled list. The 25-year-old posted a 5.14 ERA over 33 relief appearances with the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate this season. He pitched in six games with the Indians in 2015. Today, 12:10 pm

  • Contreras catching, Soler in RF for Game 2
    Willson Contreras will start behind the plate in Game 2 of the World Series against the Indians on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is all assuming the weather cooperates. David Ross made the start behind the plate in Game 1 with Jon Lester on the hill, but Contreras will catch Jake Arrieta in Game 2. Also, Jorge Soler will get the start in right field, as expected. $184 million man Jason Heyward remains on the bench. The full lineup for Chicago: Dexter Fowler CF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Ben Zobrist LF, Kyle Schwarber DH, Javier Baez 2B, Contreras C, Soler RF, Addison Russell SS. Trevor Bauer will start for Cleveland. Today, 11:12 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. Today, 10:40 am
  • Padres outright Weeks to Triple-A
    Padres sent INF Jemile Weeks outright to Triple-A El Paso.

    Advice: The move clears him from the 40-man roster. Weeks suffered a hamstring injury back in May and wasn't able to make it back to the Padres before the end of the season. The 29-year-old plans to rest and rehab the injury rather than undergo surgery. Today, 9:48 am
  • Lovullo considered favorite for D-Backs mgr
    According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, "folks would be surprised" if the Diamondbacks didn't hire Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo as their next manager.

    Advice: It's a logical fit, as new Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen knows Luvullo well from his time with the Red Sox and Indians. Phil Nevin, the manager of the Diamondbacks' Triple-A affiliate, is also a strong candidate for the job. The Diamondbacks are staying quiet on the situation, but one person who knows both men told Heyman he’d be "shocked" if Lovullo doesn’t get the job. Today, 6:07 am
  • Cody Allen works scoreless ninth in Game 1
    Cody Allen worked a scoreless ninth inning in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Cubs.

    Advice: Allen probably wasn't needed with Cleveland leading 6-0 at home, but manager Terry Francona decided to trot him out there anyway and the right-hander struck out the side to work around a Willson Contreras double. Andrew Miller threw a total of 46 pitches between the seventh and eighth on Tuesday, so Allen may have to carry a heavier load in Game 2. Allen finished his Game 1 appearance at 17 pitches -- 11 for strikes. Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Kluber dominant over six, Indians take Game 1
    Corey Kluber delivered six-plus shutout innings Tuesday as the Indians defeated the Cubs 6-0 in Game 1 of the World Series.

    Advice: Kluber struck out eight batters over the first three innings, becoming the first pitcher in MLB history to open a World Series game in such dominant fashion, and ultimately limited the dangerous Cubs offense to four hits. He was lifted at 97 pitches in the top of the seventh inning after serving up a leadoff single to Ben Zobrist. Andrew Miller came on and continued the shutout through the eighth, despite some shakier-than-usual moments. Cody Allen finished off that shutout with a scoreless ninth. There is talk of Kluber starting again in Game 4 at Wrigley Field and then possibly in Game 7 back in Cleveland. Most of his 97 pitches were stress-free in Tuesday's decisive Game 1 victory. Yesterday, 8:49 pm
  • World Series Game 2 moved to 7:08 p.m. ET
    Game 2 of the World Series will start at 7:08 p.m. ET instead of 8:08 p.m. ET due to rain in the forecast in Cleveland on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Major League Baseball made the announcement in the sixth inning of Game 1. The rain could still cause an issue for Game 2, with some projections showing a storm beginning to move through the area around Progressive Field by the early evening. Trevor Bauer is supposed to pitch for the host Indians, with Jake Arrieta on tap for the visiting Cubs. Thursday is scheduled as a travel day before the Fall Classic shifts to Wrigley Field for Game 3 on Friday. Yesterday, 7:26 pm
  • Trevor Bauer (finger) on schedule for Game 2
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Trevor Bauer (finger) is on schedule to start Game 2 of the World Series against the Cubs on Wednesday night in Cleveland.

    Advice: Bauer threw to hitters in a 20-pitch side session Monday at Progressive Field without his right pinkie opening up. He was forced from Game 3 of the ALCS last Monday in Toronto after just two-thirds of an inning when a deep laceration on that pinkie began bleeding and wouldn't stop. Bauer suffered the cut around 10 days ago while cleaning his remote control drone. He should be a go for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday, but it's certainly a lingering concern. Yesterday, 2:13 pm
  • Francona: Santana 'might' play LF at Wrigley
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Tuesday that Carlos Santana "might" play some left field when the World Series shifts to Chicago for Games 3, 4, and 5.

    Advice: There will be no DH available for the games at Wrigley Field, so Francona will probably have to sacrifice some outfield defense to keep both Santana and Mike Napoli in the starting lineup. Santana, who hasn't played the outfield in a major league game since 2012, was spotted shagging flyballs in left field during the Indians' team workout Monday at Progressive Field. He is at DH and batting fifth in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night in Cleveland. Yesterday, 2:04 pm
  • D'Backs hire Amiel Sawdaye as assistant GM
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that the Diamondbacks have hired Amiel Sawdaye as their new assistant general manager.

    Advice: Sawdaye is following new GM Mike Hazen from Boston, where he had been the Red Sox' vice president of amateur and international scouting. It looks like a good hire, as Sawdaye has been instrumental in building up the Red Sox' young big league talent and farm system. Monday, 7:26 pm
  • Corey Kluber could start Games 1, 4 and 7
    ESPN's Buster Olney reports that an idea "under strong consideration" by the Indians is to start Corey Kluber in Games 1, 4 and 7 of the World Series.

    Advice: He would only be guaranteed the first two starts, of course, depending on how the series lasts. Manager Terry Francona surely isn't going to commit to anything at this point, but trying to squeeze three starts out of easily their best (healthy) starter might be worth a shot. The Indians currently have Kluber listed for Game 1, Trevor Bauer for Game 2 and Josh Tomlin for Game 3. Danny Salazar is a possibility for Game 4, although Tito hasn't committed to using him as a starter. Monday, 4:36 pm
  • Carlos Santana takes flies in LF on Monday
    Carlos Santana shagged some flyballs in left field during the Indians' workout on Monday.

    Advice: Santana has played just one game in the outfield in the majors and that was back in 2012, but the Indians could stick him in left field for the World Series games played in Chicago with the designated hitter not available. It would obviously be quite a hit to their defense, but they might be willing to deal with it to keep his bat in the lineup. Monday, 3:21 pm
  • Bauer (finger) throwing to hitters Monday
    Indians manager Terry Francona said that Trevor Bauer (finger) will face "a couple hitters" during batting practice Monday.

    Advice: Bauer lasted just two-thirds of an inning during his ALCS Game 3 start before he had to be removed when the stitches in his right pinky busted. He's been given additional suture work and the hope is that he'll be ready to go for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday. The Indians could push him back to Game 3 on Friday if they decide he needs more time and give Josh Tomlin the ball in Game 2. Monday, 2:52 pm
  • Jake Arrieta to start Game 2 at Cleveland
    Jake Arrieta will start Game 2 of the World Series in Cleveland on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jon Lester will open the series for the Cubs in Game 1 on Tuesday. Arrieta allowed four earned runs over five innings in the Cubs' NLCS Game 3 loss to the Dodgers and the Cubs also lost his one start in the NLDS at San Francisco, though the right-hander did pitch pretty well in that one. Kyle Hendricks and John Lackey will follow Lester and Arrieta in Games 3 and 4 at Wrigley. Monday, 12:55 pm
  • Corey Kluber to start Game 1 of World Series
    Indians manager Terry Francona officially announced Sunday that Corey Kluber will start Game 1 of the World Series against the Cubs.

    Advice: There's little surprise here, as the star right-hander is the ace of the Tribe's staff and the Indians have had the luxury of several days off to arrange their rotation as they see fit. Trevor Bauer is tentatively scheduled to pitch in Game 2 (provided his injured finger obliges), with Josh Tomlin taking the ball in Game 3. Sunday, 3:33 pm
  • Indians could move Trevor Bauer to Game 3
    Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday that the team doctor's will continue to monitor Trevor Bauer's finger and could push the right-hander back to Game 3 of the World Series if he isn't ready for Game 2.

    Advice: In that instance, he would be flipped with Josh Tomlin, who is scheduled to work in Game 3. Bauer has been given additional sutures to secure his lacerated pinky finger in an effort to prevent it from bleeding. He lasted just 2/3 of an inning in his last start due to the ailment. Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Contreras takes Kershaw deep in Game 6
    Willson Contreras blasted his first career postseason homer Saturday in the Cubs' win over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Contreras connected on a hanging slider from Clayton Kershaw and socked it 379 feet into the left-field bleachers. The solo home run accounted for Contreras’ only hit of the night. It’s been a rapid ascent for Contreras. Four months ago the 24-year-old was toiling in Triple-A. Saturday he homered off Clayton Kershaw in a playoff game. The rookie has hit a remarkable .412 this postseason with four RBI across 20 at-bats. Saturday, 8:23 pm
  • Giovanni Soto designated for assignment
    Cubs designated LHP Giovanni Soto for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a roster spot for Kyle Schwarber, who has moved his rehab to the Arizona Fall League in hopes of returning for the World Series (if the Cubs make it). Soto spent all of 2016 at the Triple-A level, compiling a disappointing 5.14 ERA over 33 outings for Iowa. The 25-year-old made six relief appearances for Cleveland in 2015. Saturday, 2:55 pm

  • Trevor Bauer (finger) gets additional suture
    Trevor Bauer will be given additional suture work on his lacerated right pinky in hopes of preventing it from bleeding.

    Advice: Bauer lasted just two-thirds of an inning in his NLCS Game 3 start after the cut on his finger opened up. He's confident that he'll be able to make a start during the World Series, but then again he also expressed confidence going into his NLCS start. It remains a cloudy situation for now, but more information on his status should be available over the weekend. Friday, 12:09 pm
  • Bauer (finger) expects to be ready for the WS
    Trevor Bauer said he expects his sliced right pinkie to heal in time for the World Series.

    Advice: Cleveland has a long layoff after beating the Blue Jays in five games in the ALCS, which might mess with some players but should be a great benefit to Bauer. He suffered a deep cut on the pinkie of his throwing hand last week while cleaning a remotely controlled drone and he had to exit Monday's ALCS Game 3 start in Toronto after just two-thirds of an inning because he couldn't stop bleeding. "I'll be ready to pitch in the World Series whenever they need me," Bauer told reporters on Wednesday. "I'm doing everything I can and I'll be back out there for sure." Thursday, 8:33 am
  • Santana cracks solo homer off Estrada
    Carlos Santana rocked a solo home run off Marco Estrada in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Blue Jays in Game 5 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Santana connected for a solo shot in the third inning to boost the Indians to a 2-0 advantage. Coco Crisp would rap a solo homer of his own one frame later to supply the final run in the 3-0 pennant-clincher. For his part, Santana is now 5-for-29 (.169) in the postseason. He homered twice in the ALCS, also bopping a solo home run in Game 2. Wednesday, 3:55 pm
  • Francona hoping Bauer (finger) a pen option
    Prior to Game 5 of the ALCS, Indians manager Terry Francona said that he hoped that Trevor Bauer (finger) could be an option out of the bullpen should the series elongate.

    Advice: "[We want] to look and see if he's potentially a guy that could pitch out of the bullpen later in this series. I don't know if that's realistic or not," Francona said. Bauer was forced to exit in the first inning of Game 3 after a laceration on his right pinkie opened up. Francona relayed that the cut would be reexamined by hand specialist Dr. Thomas Graham while the Indians are in Toronto. Wednesday, 1:25 pm
  • Arrieta allows four runs in NLCS Game 3 loss
    Jake Arrieta surrendered four earned runs over five innings as the Cubs dropped Game 3 of the NLCS to the Dodgers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Arrieta looked sharp in the first two innings, but Corey Seager opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the bottom of the third and then Yasmani Grandal slugged a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth. Justin Turner's solo shot led off the bottom of the sixth, put the Dodgers up 4-0, and drove Arrieta from the game. Cubs reliever Mike Montgomery coughed up another two runs in the eighth. Los Angeles now has a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with the next two games at Dodger Stadium. Tuesday, 8:28 pm
  • Kluber allows two runs in Game 4 loss
    Corey Kluber surrendered two earned runs over five innings Tuesday as the Indians fell to the Blue Jays in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series.

    Advice: Starting on short rest for the first time in his career, Kluber gave up a solo homer to Josh Donaldson in the bottom of the third inning and an RBI single to Ezequiel Carrera in the bottom of the fourth. Kluber struck out seven but yielded four hits and two walks before exiting the game at 89 pitches. He'll be called on again for Game 7 of the ALCS if the Blue Jays can force the best-of-seven series to go that far. Tuesday, 4:11 pm
  • Indians not ruling out Bauer for rest of ALCS
    The Indians aren't ruling out Trevor Bauer (finger) being available to pitch for them in a potential Game 6 or 7 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Bauer had to depart Monday's Game 3 start after just two-thirds of an inning when the cut on his right pinky opened up. Given how bad it looked, it's hard to imagine the finger being in good enough shape to handle pitching later this week. However, the Indians apparently aren't ruling it out. Ideally, they'd obviously love to close out the Blue Jays as quick as possible and give Bauer plenty of rest before the World Series. Monday, 9:22 pm
  • Kluber to start ALCS Game 4 on short rest
    Indians manager Terry Francona said in a mid-game interview during Game 3 that Corey Kluber will start Tuesday's ALCS Game 4 against the Blue Jays on short rest.

    Advice: Francona indicated before the game that that's the way he would go should Trevor Bauer's finger injury force him from Game 3 early, and Bauer wound up lasting just two-thirds of an inning. Kluber has never started a game on short rest in his career, but he now might have to start two straight on three days' rest should the ALCS go seven games. Ryan Merritt will get the ball in Game 5. Oct 17, 6:18 pm
  • Bauer (finger) exits after 2/3 of an inning
    Trevor Bauer departed Monday's ALCS Game 3 against the Blue Jays after two-thirds of an inning when the stitches in his right pinky came loose.

    Advice: Bauer had his start pushed back after cutting his finger while repairing his drone, and he couldn't make it through one inning even after the extra time to heal. There was blood pouring out of the finger and he simply couldn't go on, as he was pulled with two outs and two runners on. His status for the rest of the ALCS and perhaps the World Series (should the Indians make it) is very much in question. Corey Kluber is now looking likely to start Game 4 on short rest, with Ryan Merritt going in Game 5. Oct 17, 5:39 pm
  • Kluber in Game 4 if Bauer's outing is short
    Corey Kluber will start Game 4 of the ALCS for the Indians if Trevor Bauer's Game 3 start is a short one.

    Advice: If Bauer lasts a while in his outing, Kluber will take the ball in Game 5 and Ryan Merritt will start Game 4. Presumably, the thinking here is that bringing Kluber back on short rest for Game 4 would potentially make him an option to come back again on short rest for a possible Game 7. Kluber tossed 6 1/3 shutout innings in Game 1. Oct 17, 2:24 pm
  • Kluber willing to take the ball on short rest
    Corey Kluber said Sunday that he's ready and willing to start on short rest in Game 4 of the ALCS if manager Terry Francona asks him to.

    Advice: As it currently stands, the Indians have Mike Clevinger lined up to start for a few innings. It may depend on the outcome of Game 3, but there may be no need to push Kluber up if the Indians come into the game with a massive 3-0 lead in the series. If they drop Game 3 however, the former Cy Young Award winner seems likely to get the call. Oct 16, 2:03 pm
  • Willson Contreras starting NLCS Game 2
    Willson Contreras is starting at catcher and batting seventh in Sunday's NLCS Game 2 versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Jon Lester's personal catcher David Ross drew the start in Game 1, but it will be Contreras behind the dish with Kyle Hendricks on the mound. Jason Heyward is getting another start even with the Dodgers throwing southpaw ace Clayton Kershaw, although he has moved down to the No. 8 spot in the order. The Cubs' full lineup looks like this: Dexter Fowler CF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Ben Zobrist LF, Addison Russell SS, Javier Baez 2B, Contreras C, Heyward RF, Hendricks P. Oct 16, 12:22 pm
  • D'Backs name Hazen new executive VP/GM
    The Diamondbacks have named Mike Hazen their new executive vice president and general manager.

    Advice: Hazen had been the GM in Boston, where he served as president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski's No. 2. The 40-year-old was the Red Sox' assistant GM for four years prior to that. Hazen is a Princeton grad and former minor league outfielder and is expected to lead a more analytics-based front office in Arizona.'s Steve Gilbert hears that former chief baseball officer Tony La Russa will remain with the D'Backs in an advisor role. Oct 16, 11:13 am
  • Kris Bryant chips in with two hits in Game 1
    Kris Bryant ripped two hits in the Cubs' win over the Dodgers Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Bryant’s first hit of the night came on a fly to left field in the first inning. It looked like Howie Kendrick had it sized up against the ivy but instead it went over his head. Dexter Fowler came around to score all the way from first base as Bryant cruised into second for a double. Bryant also added a double in the eighth inning off Joe Blanton. The MVP frontrunner has continued his success in the playoffs, hitting .400 with a homer and four RBI across 20 postseason at-bats. Oct 15, 9:06 pm
