  • Minor (shoulder) in Braves' plans for '16
    Mike Minor (shoulder) is still in the Braves' plans for 2016.

    Advice: Minor missed the entire 2015 season after undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, but Braves president of baseball operations John Hart said Monday that he's "all systems go" and ramping up his throwing program. The southpaw made $5.6 million this season and will be arbitration-eligible for the third time this winter. Because he was a Super Two player, he remains under team control through 2017.

  • Drew Pomeranz to have AC joint repaired
    Drew Pomeranz is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left AC joint.

    Advice: Pomeranz has dealt with AC joint issues off and on during his career and has finally decided to have the problem addressed via the surgical route. It's unclear at this point how long his rehab will be, but he'll be recovered in time for spring training. Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Cards optimistic Yadi (thumb) plays in NLDS
    Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said Monday that the club is "optimistic" Yadier Molina (thumb) will be on their NLDS roster.

    Advice: Molina has missed the last two weeks after being diagnosed with a sprained left thumb. He's still not 100 percent, but the Cards will make a custom splint for him to wear so that he can hit and catch. The club has indicated that hitting will likely be the bigger issue for Molina, but they'll be happy to have his elite defense even if he can't offer much at the plate. St. Louis hosts the winner of the National League Wild Card game in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday. Yesterday, 2:51 pm

  • Giants undecided on picking up Aoki's option
    Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Monday that it will be a "close call" as to whether the club picks up Nori Aoki's $5.5 million option for 2016.

    Advice: Aoki hit .287/.353/.380 for the Giants in 2014 but was plagued by injuries, playing in just 93 games. His season ended prematurely due to a concussion, but the Giants don't expect it to be a long-term issue. They'll owe Aoki a $700,000 buyout if they decide to decline his option. Yesterday, 2:35 pm

  • Harvey (elbow) to rest for 4-6 weeks
    Orioles pitching prospect Hunter Harvey (elbow) will rest for the next 4-6 weeks before resuming a throwing program.

    Advice: Harvey missed all of the season with elbow and forearm issues, but an MRI cleared him of any structural damage. He hopes to have a relatively normal offseason and enter spring training at 100 percent. Yesterday, 1:57 pm

  • Chasen Shreve won't be on Wild Card roster
    ESPN Deportes' Marly Rivera reports that Chasen Shreve will not be on the Yankees' Wild Card roster.

    Advice: Shreve was terrific for the Yankees for most of the season, but he's really struggled since the beginning of September with a 13.50 ERA, 4.00 WHIP and eight walks over six innings. It remains to be seen whether he'd be included on the Yankees' ALDS roster should they advance. Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Robinson Chirinos (biceps) ready for ALDS
    Robinson Chirinos (biceps) will be ready for the ALDS.

    Advice: Chirinos missed much of September with a left biceps injury, but he got in a few games before the end of the regular season and will get a bunch more rest this week. The 31-year-old catcher posted a .762 OPS with 10 home runs and 34 RBI in 78 games this season. Yesterday, 1:02 pm
  • Murphy could start at C for NYY in WC Game
    John Ryan Murphy could start over Brian McCann at catcher in Tuesday's AL Wild Card Game.

    Advice: Astros starter Dallas Keuchel dominates left-handed-hitters and the right-handed-hitting Murphy registered a nice .770 OPS versus southpaws this season. It's probably the correct move. The lefty-swinging McCann would be a nice bat off the bench in the winner-moves-on tilt at Yankee Stadium. Yesterday, 12:18 pm
  • Salty expects to test free agency this winter
    Jarrod Saltalamacchia said Monday that he plans to test the free agent market this winter.

    Advice: Salty had a minor resurgence after moving from Miami to Arizona this summer, posting an .805 OPS with eight home runs in 70 games (37 starts) for the Diamondbacks. The 30-year-old catcher said he wants to find a starting job, and the D'Backs are probably going to move forward with arbitration-eligible backstop Welington Castillo. Yesterday, 10:34 am
  • Sabathia to alcohol rehab; done for playoffs
    CC Sabathia is checking himself into an alcohol rehab facility and will not be available for the postseason.

    Advice: Shocking news. Sabathia didn't have a very good year, but he showed some positive signs in his last several regular-season starts and was going to be part of the Yankees' playoff rotation if they were to advance past the Wild Card Game. "It hurts me deeply to do this now, but I owe it to myself and to my family," the 35-year-old left-hander said in a written statement. Sabathia will focus on getting healthy both mentally and physically for 2016. He is still owed $30 million. Yesterday, 10:10 am
  • Hector Olivera will play winter ball in PR
    Hector Olivera will spend six weeks in the Puerto Rican Winter League.

    Advice: That should be a big benefit to Olivera after missing a ton of playing time this summer to visa issues and injuries. The 30-year-old Cuban infielder batted .253/.310/.405 in 87 plate appearances for the Braves and will carry a cloudy fantasy picture into 2016. Yesterday, 9:50 am

  • Freese would 'absolutely' like to return
    David Freese said Sunday that he would "absolutely" like to return to the Angels next season.

    Advice: And it sounds like the Halos will try to work something out with the 32-year-old free agent third baseman. Freese had a nice season in Anaheim and there's not a ready-made replacement at the hot corner in that organization. "A lot of things have to happen on both sides," Freese said Sunday evening. "It’s a new experience for me. We’ll see what happens when the World Series is over, and go from there." Yesterday, 7:51 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

  • LaMarre (hamstring) retired as pinch-hitter
    Ryan LaMarre (hamstring) was retired as a pinch-hitter in Sunday's season finale against the Pirates.

    Advice: LaMarre hadn't appeared in a game since September 20 due to a strained right hamstring. The 26-year-old outfielder finished 2-for-25 (.080) in his first taste of major league life and probably won't be in the mix for an Opening Day roster spot in 2016. Yesterday, 6:18 am
    L, 4-0 x @Pit
  • Flande (knee, ankle) goes two scoreless
    Yohan Flande (knee, ankle) pitched two scoreless innings in Sunday's season finale against the Giants.

    Advice: Flande yielded just one hit out of the seven batters he faced. The left-hander hadn't made an appearance since September 19 due to a bruised left patellar tendon. He finishes the 2015 season with a 4.74 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 43/25 K/BB ratio in 68 1/3 innings. Yesterday, 6:11 am
  • Yadier Molina to have thumb re-evaluated Mon.
    Yadier Molina will have his ailing left thumb re-evaluated on Monday.

    Advice: Molina was prescribed another week of rest when he visited the doctor last Monday. He said Sunday that the thumb is "getting stronger every day," but we won't know about his status for the NLDS until after Monday's exam. Tony Cruz has been handling the catching duties for St. Louis with Yadi sidelined. Sunday, 11:45 am

  • Hector Olivera (elbow) out of lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) remained out of the Braves' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader versus the Cardinals.

    Advice: Olivera remains sore after being hit in the left elbow by a pitch last Tuesday. It's unclear whether he'll feel up to playing the second game. Adonis Garcia is handling third base in the first game of the doubleheader. Sunday, 7:27 am

  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) mulling surgery
    Doctors have recommended that Drew Pomeranz undergo a clavicle resection.

    Advice: Pomeranz will get a second opinion, but if he goes through with the procedure, he'll be looking at a six-week recovery period. He should be back at full strength well before pitchers and catchers are required to report in mid-February. Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Nori Aoki (concussion) won't return this year
    Nori Aoki (concussion) is feeling much better, but will not return before the end of the season.

    Advice: Giants skipper Bruce Bochy said Friday that Aoki is at about 90%, but there's no reason for the team to rush him back into action. He should be fully healthy heading into the 2016 season. Friday, 5:15 pm

  • Yankees top Red Sox to claim wild card spot
    CC Sabathia pitched five innings of one-run ball as the Yankees topped the Red Sox on Thursday to claim a wild card spot.

    Advice: Sabathia finishes the regular season 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA. Remarkably enough, he's going to end up leading the Yankees with 167 1/3 innings thrown this year. He'll certainly be a part of the postseason rotation following his strong September. Thursday, 7:51 pm
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) scratched from lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Nationals.

    Advice: Olivera was hit in the elbow by a pitch on Tuesday and still isn't 100 percent. Adonis Garcia will fill in at third base. Thursday, 1:27 pm
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; W, 2-0 vs ^ StL
  • Hector Olivera (elbow) returns to lineup
    Hector Olivera (elbow) is back in the Braves' lineup Wednesday.

    Advice: Oliver exited Tuesday's game after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch, but he's fine. He's hitting .260/.321/.411 with two homers in 22 games so far with the big club. Wednesday, 11:48 am
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; W, 2-0 vs ^ StL
  • Hector Olivera leaves after HBP on elbow
    Hector Olivera departed Tuesday's game against the Nationals after being hit on the left elbow by a pitch.

    Advice: Olivera sports an elbow pad on his left arm, but Tanner Roark's offering still smarted. The Braves should have an update on status later Tuesday. Tuesday, 5:41 pm
    W, 6-0 vs ^ StL; W, 2-0 vs ^ StL
  • Drew Pomeranz (shoulder) shut down
    Drew Pomeranz has been shut down for the season with an AC joint issue in his left shoulder.

    Advice: It's an ailment that Pomeranz has battled off and on for a while, so there don't figure to be any long-term concerns. Pomeranz held a 4.63 ERA as a starter and 2.61 ERA in relief this season and might settle into a bullpen role over the long haul. Tuesday, 5:17 pm
  • Aoki (concussion) could pinch-hit this week
    Nori Aoki will visit a concussion specialist in hopes of being cleared to return to action.

    Advice: Aoki could be available to pinch-hit later this week if he receives clearance. He first suffered a concussion back in July and has been shut down for a few weeks after having a setback. Tuesday, 4:45 pm

  • Molina (thumb) ruled out for regular season
    Yadier Molina (thumb) has been ruled out for the remainer of the regular season after a doctor on Monday prescribed him another week of rest.

    Advice: He'll be re-evaluated on Sunday or Monday and still has a chance to be ready for the start of the postseason, but obviously this news isn't ideal. Molina is dealing with a slight ligament tear in his left thumb that doesn't really affect him catching but could be a hindrance at the plate. Tony Cruz will continue to handle the catching duties for the Cardinals. Monday, 2:06 pm

  • Freese socks solo homer in tight win
    David Freese went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

    Advice: Freese launched a solo homer off Mariners starter Hisashi Iwakuma in the fifth inning. It would be his only hit in the contest. He's now homered in back-to-back game and is slashing .258/.320/.424 with 13 homers and 53 RBI. The numbers might not be particularly electric, but this has been the 32-year-old third-baseman's best overall season since 2012. Sep 27, 3:27 pm
  • Robinson Chirinos (biceps) cleared for action
    Robinson Chirinos (biceps) has been cleared to return to action.

    Advice: He's not starting Sunday, but Chirinos will be available off the bench. He hasn't started since injuring his left biceps on September 9. Sep 27, 10:20 am
