  • Clayton Kershaw to start Game 1 of NLDS
    Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Mets.

    Advice: Zack Greinke has had a Cy Young-worthy season, but so has Kershaw and he's the obvious choice for Game 1. Kershaw will be looking to improve upon his career 5.12 postseason ERA as he matches up against Jacob deGrom in Game 1. He'll be followed by Greinke and Brett Anderson. 43 minutes ago
  • Marlins will move fences in for 2016
    The Marlins will move in and shorten the height of the fences at Marlins Park before the 2016 season.

    Advice: There had been rumors that they were considering a change and now the decision is official. The club still intends for Marlins Park to be pitcher-friendly, but president David Samson wants "to make it more fair." It's obviously good news for Marlins hitters, especially for a slugger like Giancarlo Stanton. Today, 3:49 pm

  • Royals likely to opt for Young over Medlen
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Royals are likelier to start Chris Young than Kris Medlen in Game 4 of the ALDS.

    Advice: That's if they're leading the series, as they'll probably go with Yordano Ventura on short rest if they're facing elimination. Young has made only two starts since the beginning of August, as he had been moved to the bullpen. The veteran right-hander boasts a 3.18 ERA in 18 starts this season. Today, 2:59 pm
  • Royals willing to start Ventura on short rest
    FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Royals are prepared to start Yordano Ventura in Game 4 of the ALDS if they're facing elimination.

    Advice: Morosi says that part of the reason they're going with Ventura over Johnny Cueto in Game 1 is because they think Ventura is the best suited of their starters to pitch on short rest. Edinson Volquez is lined up to pitch Game 3, with Chris Young likely to take the ball in Game 4 if Kansas City doesn't go with Ventura. Today, 2:54 pm
  • Van Slyke (wrist) hits in batting cage Tues.
    Scott Van Slyke (wrist) took swings in the batting cage on Tuesday.

    Advice: Unfortunately, manager Don Mattingly later indicated that the swings didn't go particularly well. Van Slyke was hopeful to take batting practice, but his wrist simply isn't up to speed yet. He was given a cortisone shot on Friday, but his status for the team's NLDS showdown with the Mets remains clouded. Today, 12:43 pm

  • Matt Harvey will be fined for missing workout
    Mets manager Terry Collins said that Matt Harvey would be fined for missing Tuesday's mandatory workout session.

    Advice: Harvey was stuck in traffic when the workout began and eventually called Collins when it became clear he wouldn't make the session. Collins then told him to turnaround. The 26-year-old right-hander subsequently apologized to his teammates. A fine's coming his way, but he'll still be the starter for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Dodgers. At least assuming he arrives at the ballpark on time. Today, 12:35 pm
  • Brian Matusz undergoes shoulder surgery
    Brian Matusz underwent a successful arthroscopic surgery on his right (non-throwing) shoulder on Monday.

    Advice: The Ravens' team physician, Dr. Leigh Ann Curl, performed the surgery. Because it's on his non-throwing shoulder, the amount of rehab work's likely not to be as severe. The cranky shoulder should heal up in a month or so. Today, 11:25 am
  • Update: Harvey stuck in tunnel traffic
    Updating a previous story, Matt Harvey missed Tuesday's mandatory workout because he was stuck in tunnel traffic.

    Advice: Initially, even Mets GM Sandy Alderson was unaware of why Harvey was absent from the workout. Apparently, the ace was stuck in traffic and called manager Terry Collins, who told him to turn around. Mystery solved. Today, 11:11 am
  • Harvey misses mandatory workout
    Matt Harvey missed a mandatory workout on Tuesday.

    Advice: To add intrigue to Harvey's absence, GM Sandy Alderson indicated that he doesn't know why the Mets ace wasn't at the workout. So far as we know, Harvey isn't dealing with any kind of injury. Details should emerge as the day progresses. Today, 11:05 am
  • Uribe (chest) out for NLDS vs. Dodgers
    Juan Uribe (chest) will miss the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: It's not a big surprise, as Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and has seen little in the way of improvement. His absence will likely clear the way for Kirk Nieuwenhuis to make the roster. The Mets haven't ruled Uribe out for future rounds of the playoffs. Today, 10:44 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Flores says his back feels good
    Wilmer Flores said Tuesday that his back feels good.

    Advice: Flores sat out the final four games of the regular season with some back stiffness, but he's good to go for the NLDS. However, Ruben Tejada is likely to get most of the playing time at shortstop. Today, 10:31 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Marlins re-sign Ichiro Suzuki for 2016
    Marlins re-signed OF Ichiro Suzuki to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Clark Spencer of the Miami Herald reports that he'll receive a $2 million base salary. Suzuki's .561 OPS this season was the second-lowest among players with at least 400 plate appearances (only Kansas City's Omar Infante was worse), but the Marlins are willing to bring him back in a reserve role as he continues his chase for 3,000 hits in MLB. He'll go into his age-42 season with 2,935 hits. Today, 10:21 am
  • Dan Jennings won't be back as Marlins manager
    The Marlins announced Tuesday that Dan Jennings will not return as manager for 2016.

    Advice: Given that the Marlins have already begun a search for a new manager, this announcement was inevitable. Jennings was asked to return as general manager, but it's unclear whether he will stick around. The Marlins went 55-69 after Jennings took over for Mike Redmond in May. Today, 10:10 am

  • Ventura starting Game 1 of ALDS for Royals
    Yordano Ventura will start Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

    Advice: Not a surprise, as this is how the Royals lined things up in recent days. Johnny Cueto will start Game 2 of the series while Edinson Volquez will pitch in Game 3. The Royals will face the winner of Tuesday's Wild Card Game between the Astros and the Yankees. Today, 9:58 am
  • Gallardo to start Game 1 of ALDS for Rangers
    Yovani Gallardo will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Blue Jays on Thursday.

    Advice: Cole Hamels just pitched on Sunday, so he wasn't an option for the assignment. However, Hamels will start Game 2 on Friday. Gallardo posted a 3.42 ERA in 33 starts this season and has pitched well vs. Toronto, but he has completed six innings in a start just once since the start of August. Today, 9:36 am
  • Twins' Brian Dozier to undergo MRI on hip
    Twins general manager Terry Ryan said Tuesday that Brian Dozier will undergo an MRI on his hip.

    Advice: It's not considered serious, but it could provide some context for his drop-off in production during the second half. The 28-year-old had an .841 OPS in the first half and a .639 OPS after the All-Star break. Today, 9:29 am
  • Astros finalize roster for AL Wild Card game
    Mike Fiers is on the Astros' roster for Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Yankees.

    Advice: Dallas Keuchel is starting the Wild Card game, but he's going on three days' rest, so Fiers gives Astros manager A.J. Hinch some flexibility just in case. Similar to the Yankees, the Astros are carrying nine pitchers for the one-game playoff. Matt Duffy made the roster as the 25th man while Jonathan Singleton was left off. Of course, the Astros will reset their roster if they advance to the ALDS. Today, 8:42 am
  • Cespedes (fingers) '100 pct. ready' for NLDS
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) said Tuesday that he's "100 percent ready" for the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Cespedes gave the Mets quite the scare when he was hit in the left hand with a pitch last Wednesday, but fortunately he only suffered contusions on his middle and ring fingers. He returned to action over the weekend with no issues, so he's good to go for the postseason. Today, 8:38 am
  • Marlins bringing back Ichiro for 2016
    Joe Frisaro of reports that the Marlins are bringing back Ichiro Suzuki for 2016.

    Advice: It was expected already, but an official announcement is expected on Tuesday. Suzuki turns 42 later this month and batted just .229/.282/.279 in 438 plate appearances this season, but he's 65 hits shy of 3,000 for his career. There's obvious marketing appeal for the Marlins. Today, 8:32 am
  • Yankees announce Wild Card game roster
    Luis Severino is on the Yankees' roster for Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Astros.

    Advice: Masahiro Tanaka will make the start, but Severino will be around as insurance. The Yankees are carrying nine pitchers and three catchers. Rob Refsnyder, Slade Heathcott, and pinch-running specialist Rico Noel have also been included as bench players. The Yankees will change their roster if they advance to the ALDS. Today, 7:45 am
  • Ichiro hoping to return to Miami next season
    Ichiro Suzuki said Sunday that he's hoping to return to the Marlins next season.

    Advice: "Of course" was the response from the 41-year-old impending free agent outfielder. Ichiro batted just .229/.282/.279 in 438 plate appearances this season and he turns 42 years old later this month, but there should be offers out there if he's willing to accept a low base salary and reserve role. There's thought to be some interest from the Marlins, though that front office is currently in flux and will have quite a bit on its plate this winter. Yesterday, 6:56 am
  • Marlins to interview Larry Bowa for manager
    Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports that the Marlins plan to interview Phillies bench coach Larry Bowa for their managerial opening.

    Advice: Bowa previously managed the Padres (1987-1988) and Phillies (2001-2004), compiling an 81-127 career record. The Marlins are seeking a manager with prior experience this time around and have already interviewed Bo Porter and Manny Acta for the position. Sunday, 6:13 pm

  • Kershaw fans seven in brief action vs Padres
    Making his final start of the season, Clayton Kershaw struck out seven Padres across 3 2/3 scoreless innings on Sunday.

    Advice: Even in a predictably short start, Kershaw still struck out seven. The ace southpaw is now set to start Game 1 of the NLDS against the Mets on Friday. During regular season play, he held a 2.13, 0.88 WHIP and 301/42 K/BB ratio across 232 2/3 innings. Sunday, 3:25 pm
  • Uribe (chest) still can't do activities
    Juan Uribe (chest) remains unable to do physical activities.

    Advice: Uribe is still dealing with a deep chest bruise that he suffered while diving for a ball on September 20. He's a long shot for the NLDS roster and is a question mark for any subsequent series should the Mets advance. Sunday, 9:23 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Brian Dozier absent from Sunday's lineup
    Brian Dozier is absent from the Twins' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: Minnesota is playing a lot of subs in this one. It will be Eduardo Escobar shifting over to second base and Danny Santana covering shortstop. Sunday, 8:28 am
  • Clayton Kershaw to start Game 1 of NLDS
    Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the NLDS Friday against the Mets.

    Advice: Kershaw had another unbelievable year, winning 16 games with a 2.16 ERA and a league-leading 294 strikeouts. The three-time Cy Young winner hasn't had much success in the postseason (1-5, 5.12 ERA in 11 appearances) but he's been lights out against the Mets, holding them to one run and eight hits over 16 innings this year. Saturday, 8:32 pm
  • Severino allows three runs, Yanks fall to O's
    Luis Severino yielded three earned runs in seven innings Saturday in the Yankees' loss to the Orioles.

    Advice: Severino came away with a no-decision because the O's didn't take the lead for good until the bottom of the eighth inning. Severino struck out six, walked none, and gave up only five hits. But two of those five hits were homers. The young right-hander will finish his first taste of MLB action with an impressive 2.89 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 62 1/3 innings. He'll be in the Opening Day rotation in 2016. Saturday, 6:46 pm
  • Harvey strikes out 11 over six strong innings
    Matt Harvey allowed just one (unearned) run over six innings Saturday in the Mets' loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: Harvey looked sharp in his final tuneup before the postseason, yielding only four hits and striking out 11 batters on just 91 pitches. He did not issue a walk. Max Scherzer out-dueled him on the other end, however, firing his second no-hitter of the 2015 season as the Nationals went on to win 2-0. Harvey is expected to make just one start in the NLDS. Saturday, 6:37 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes sitting out nightcap
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup for the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes returned to action Saturday after missing Thursday's game with a finger injury and went 1-for-3 with a single. He'll take a seat for the nightcap with Kirk Nieuwenhuis getting the start in center field. Cespedes has established new career highs in almost every offensive category including home runs (35), RBI (105) and hits (182). Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Cespedes (finger) returns to lineup for Mets
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) went 1-for-3 with a single and a walk in his return to action Saturday against the Nationals.

    Advice: Cespedes gave the Mets quite a scare when he was hit in the left hand with a pitch on Wednesday night, but fortunately he only suffered contusions on his middle and ring fingers. He'll be good to go for the postseason. Saturday, 1:17 pm
  • Brian Dozier plates lone run in loss Saturday
    Brian Dozier went 1-for-4 and plated the Twins lone run as they dropped a critical decision to the Royals on Saturday in Minnesota.

    Advice: The loss closes the door on the Twins playoff hopes. At the time, Dozier's run-scoring single in the sixth inning tied the game at 1-1, but the Royals would strike for four the following frame to put the game out of reach. Dozier also swiped his 12th base of the year in the loss. The power-hitting infielder is slashing .236/.307/.444 on the season with 28 long balls and 77 RBI. Saturday, 1:08 pm
  • Yordano Ventura brilliant in win over Twins
    Yordano Ventura was brilliant in Saturday's victory over the Twins, racking up 11 strikeouts over seven innings of one-run ball.

    Advice: Ventura scattered just four hits and three walks on the afternoon. The only blemish on his day was an RBI single by Brian Dozier in the sixth inning. Riding a strong second half, Ventura finishes the regular season 13-8 with a 4.08 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 156/58 K/BB ratio across 163 1/3 innings. Saturday, 1:08 pm
  • Scott Van Slyke receives cortisone shot
    Scott Van Slyke received a cortisone shot in his ailing right wrist on Friday.

    Advice: He has been in and out of the lineup for most of September due to soreness in his hand and wrist, and has been unable to take batting practice for the past few days. As of now, he's still expected to be a part of the Dodgers postseason roster, but any further setbacks could change that. Saturday, 6:05 am
    W, 6-3 vs x SD
  • Young holds Twins to one run in final start
    Chris Young pitched well in earning a no-decision against the Twins on Friday, allowing one run on four hits over 6 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Young struck out five and walked two on the evening. The lone run to score on his watch came via an RBI single off the bat of Aaron Hicks in the second inning. The 36-year-old right-hander has pitched to a 3.06 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 83/43 K/BB ratio over 123 1/3 innings and should see some work in the postseason as the Royals try to win the AL pennant for the second straight year. Friday, 8:28 pm
  • Game between Mets, Nationals postponed Friday
    Friday's contest between the Mets and Nationals has been postponed.

    Advice: The Mets and Nationals are the latest in a series of East Coast rain-outs. They'll play a day-night doubleheader on Saturday, with games at 1:00 pm ET and 7:00 pm ET. Friday, 1:19 pm
  • Cespedes (fingers) probably won't play Friday
    Yoenis Cespedes (fingers) probably won't play Friday.

    Advice: Cespedes escaped with a couple of bruised fingers after Wednesday night's frightening HBP on his left hand, but the Mets want their impending free agent slugger to be as close to 100 percent as possible leading into the NLDS. He sat out Thursday and probably won't see more than a handful of at-bats over the weekend against the Nationals. Thursday, 11:48 am
  • Flores (back) unlikely to play Friday either
    Wilmer Flores (back) is not expected to play Friday either.

    Advice: Flores made an early exit from Wednesday's game with stiffness in his lower back and was still feeling the discomfort on Thursday. It's get-healthy time for the National League East-champion Mets. Flores should be fine by the start of the NLDS next Friday. Thursday, 11:42 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Juan Uribe (chest) now doubtful for NLDS
    Juan Uribe (chest) has shown very little improvement and now looks doubtful for the NLDS.

    Advice: Uribe suffered a deep chest bruise while diving for a ball on September 20 and then aggravated the injury a few days later. He'll visit a specialist in New York on Thursday and hope to get some answers, but it sounds like an extended period of rest is the only cure here. Thursday, 7:12 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Cespedes (fingers) not in Mets' lineup Thurs.
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Phillies.

    Advice: Cespedes was struck on the left hand by a fastball on Wednesday night but escaped with minor contusions to his left middle and ring fingers. He's not the only starter absent Thursday for the National League East-champion Mets. Consider the slugger day-to-day for the final weekend and a full-go for postseason play. Thursday, 7:02 am
  • Yovani Gallardo earns win over Tigers
    Yovani Gallardo pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed two runs Wednesday as the Rangers beat the Tigers 6-2.

    Advice: Unless Gallardo is needed in relief this weekend, he finishes a fine regular season with a 13-11 record and a 3.42 ERA. It's better than we expected after the trade to Texas, though the 1.42 WHIP and dwindling strikeout rate (121 K in 184 1/3 IP) wouldn't seem to bode well for the future. Wednesday, 9:08 pm
  • Matusz set for surgery to repair AC joint
    Brian Matusz will have arthroscopic surgery Monday to repair an arthritic AC joint in his right (non-throwing) shoulder.

    Advice: He'll basically have the shoulder cleaned up. The southpaw said it didn't affect his performance this season, so it certainly shouldn't be an issue going forward. Wednesday, 8:16 pm
  • Wilmer Flores exits with lower back stiffness
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game with lower back stiffness.

    Advice: Flores didn't appear to be dealing with anything too serious before being removed from the game. It sounds minor, and Flores shouldn't be sidelined too long as a result. Wednesday, 6:35 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Cespedes diagnosed with finger contusions
    Yoenis Cespedes was diagnosed with contusions on his left middle and ring fingers.

    Advice: The good news is that nothing is broken -- X-rays came back negative, so it's simply a bruise, not a break. It wouldn't be shocking to see Cespedes held out for most or all of the rest of the regular season in hopes of having him back for the start of the NLDS. Wednesday, 6:33 pm
  • Wilmer Flores exits with undisclosed injury
    Wilmer Flores left Wednesday's game against the Phillies with an undisclosed injury.

    Advice: Either that, or Mets manager Terry Collins wanted to get Flores out of the game in the top of the fourth inning for some baseball-related reason. Flores was replaced by pinch-runner Ruben Tejada. He was 1-for-2 before leaving. The Mets should provide some clarity soon. Wednesday, 5:47 pm
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Cespedes exits after taking HBP on left hand
    Yoenis Cespedes left Wednesday's game against the Phillies after being hit in the left hand by a pitch.

    Advice: Cespedes was immediately in pain after being hit by the Justin De Fratus pitch. He was holding his hand and wrist area as he walked off the field. The Mets should have an update on his condition shortly. Wednesday, 5:12 pm
  • Matusz will have surgery on right shoulder
    Brian Matusz will have surgery next Monday on his right (non-throwing) shoulder.

    Advice: The details on the procedure aren't known, but Orioles manager Buck Showalter says it's minor. Especially given that it's his non-throwing shoulder, Matusz should have a relatively normal offseason. Wednesday, 10:36 am
  • Fiers allows 4 R over 5 2/3 IP as Astros lose
    Mike Fiers got a no-decision, allowing four runs (three earned) in 5 2/3 innings in Tuesday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: The Mariners scored twice on sacrifice flies in the first inning, but didn't manage anything else until Robinson Cano hit a two-run homer in the sixth. On the evening, Fiers gave up five hits and a walk while striking out seven. In nine starts and one relief appearance for the Astros since joining the team at the trade deadline, Fiers has a 3.32 ERA and a 59/21 K/BB ratio over 62 1/3 innings. Fiers is on track to pitch the regular season finale, in Arizona against the Diamondbacks. Tuesday, 10:42 pm
  • Kershaw masterful as Dodgers clinch NL West
    Clayton Kershaw pitched a one-hit shutout as the Dodgers clinched the NL West on Tuesday versus the Giants.

    Advice: Kershaw allowed one hit and one walk while striking out 13, retiring the final 19 batters he faced. The Dodgers backed him with eight runs of support, so it was an easy night. The lefty now has a 2.16 ERA, a 0.89 WHIP, and a 294/42 K/BB ratio over 229 innings. Kershaw is still six strikeouts shy of 300; he's looking to become the first pitcher to strike out 300 since Curt Schilling and Randy Johnson in 2002. Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Harvey will only make one start in the NLDS
    Mets GM Sandy Alderson indicated Tuesday that Matt Harvey will only pitch once in the NLDS.

    Advice: Which means he's probably going to take Game 3 against the Dodgers. Harvey has been the center of a very public innings-limit controversy for going on a month, but he threw 97 pitches over 6 2/3 innings Saturday against the Reds and can still have a major impact as a one-start-per-series pitcher in the postseason. Tuesday, 1:41 pm
  • Jennings: Stanton (hand) done for the season
    Marlins interim manager Dan Jennings announced Tuesday that Giancarlo Stanton (hand) is done for the year.

    Advice: Stanton was trying to push back from hamate surgery, but it just didn't happen. And there was never a good reason to rush him. Stanton should be 100 percent heading into spring training next February and he'll again be among the favorites to lead the major leagues in home runs. He tallied 27 homers and 67 RBI in only 74 games this year. Tuesday, 1:09 pm
    15-Day DL

  • Ventura stymies Cubs over seven innings
    Yordano Ventura dazzled with seven scoreless innings, but was saddled with a no-decision as the Royals lost to the Cubs 1-0 in 11 innings on Monday.

    Advice: Ventura scattered two hits (both singles) and a walk with six strikeouts. He had no-hit the Cubs through five innings but Jorge Soler broke it up with a leadoff single in the sixth. The right-hander now has a 4.20 ERA, a 1.31 WHIP, and a 145/55 K/BB ratio over 156 1/3 innings. Ventura will make his final regular season start in Minnesota against the Twins. Monday, 8:03 pm
  • Young blanks Indians over five innings
    Chris Young pitched well in his return to the rotation on Sunday, tossing five no-hit innings against the Indians in the win.

    Advice: Young was pushed out of the rotation near the end of July, but he returned on Sunday and looked sharp. The veteran right-hander struck out two and walked one without allowing a hit. Indeed, the Indians wouldn't notch their first hit until the seventh inning. For the season, he holds a 3.15 ERA and 1.09 WHIP over 117 innings (including 17 starts). A road date with the Twins awaits for his final regular season start. Sep 27, 2:12 pm
  • Luis Severino keeps White Sox in check
    Luis Severino spun six shutout frames Sunday in the Yankees' 6-1 victory over the White Sox.

    Advice: Severino recorded just two strikeouts on the day, tying his lowest mark in 10 outings for the Bronx Bombers, but he also yielded a mere five hits -- four singles -- with one walks. The rookie had one hiccup earlier this month against the powerful Blue Jays lineup but has overall been very consistent while flashing top-of-the-rotation upside. Severino's next start should come next weekend in Baltimore. Sep 27, 1:48 pm
  • Dozier adds two-run double as Twins win
    Brian Dozier had a two-run double as part of a 2-for-5 effort as the Twins beat the Tigers 7-1 on Sunday.

    Advice: Dozier drilled a two-run double to left field in the middle of the Twins' six-run outburst in the second inning to chase Randy Wolf from the game. The second baseman has been a valuable fantasy performer this season, batting .242/.314/.459 with 28 home runs, 75 RBI, 101 runs scored, and 11 stolen bases. Sep 27, 1:31 pm
  • Yoenis Cespedes not in Sunday's lineup
    Yoenis Cespedes is not in the Mets' lineup Sunday.

    Advice: He's simply receiving a day of rest. Juan Lagares will be in center field. Sep 27, 8:08 am
  • Marlins to make Stanton (hand) decision soon
    Marlins interim manager Dan Jennings said Saturday that the club is "getting close to that yea or nay date" when it comes to whether Giancarlo Stanton (hand) will return.

    Advice: A decision figures to be revealed Sunday or Monday, as Jennings said that Stanton probably wouldn't travel on the season-ending road trip beginning Tuesday if it's determined he should shut it down. The club is leaving it up to Stanton as to whether he'll come back during the final week. "There still scar tissue and it's strength. It's the same two issues… We have left it in his court," Jennings said. At this point, it would be a surprise if Stanton returns. He's been out since late June following surgery to remove the hamate bone from his left hand. Sep 27, 7:52 am
    15-Day DL

  • Harvey pitches into seventh, Mets clinch East
    Matt Harvey held the Reds to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Saturday in the Mets' 10-2 rout.

    Advice: And with that, the Mets are your 2015 National League East champions. They're headed to the postseason for the first time since 2006. Harvey gave up nine hits but walked none and struck out six, throwing 97 pitches with no apparent restrictions. So much for that innings limit controversy. Sep 26, 4:19 pm
  • Uribe (chest) may not be ready for NLDS
    There is concern within the Mets organization that Juan Uribe (chest) may not be ready in time for the National League Division Series.

    Advice: Uribe is listed as day-to-day with his chest injury. While X-rays revealed no structural damage on Friday, he's still in a good deal of pain and it's going to be awhile before he's ready to return to the lineup. Sep 26, 10:34 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Matt Harvey to make another start for Mets
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Matt Harvey will make another start next week.

    Advice: Harvey is working against the Reds on Saturday afternoon, then will make one final tune-up in the regular season before the Mets head to the playoffs. How the Mets will structure their rotation in the postseason remains to be seen, but Harvey will obviously play a prominent role. Sep 26, 10:13 am
  • Gallardo allows two runs in no-decision
    Yovani Gallardo allowed two runs in 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the Astros on Friday.

    Advice: Rangers manager Jeff Banister brought the hook after Gallardo gave up a two-out double to Evan Gattis. He finished just one out short of qualifying for the victory, but Banister didn't want to take a chance of letting the Astros back in it. Gallardo labored for most of the outing, allowing eight hits -- including a home run -- and two walks while throwing just 48 out of 87 pitches for strikes. The veteran right-hander has completed six innings just once dating back to July 30. Sep 25, 9:46 pm
