  • Mattingly: Corey Seager is the starting SS
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday that Corey Seager is the team's starting shortstop and not in a platoon with Jimmy Rollins.

    Advice: Rollins started Game 3 on Monday, but Seager is back in there in Game 4 on Tuesday even against a left-hander. The impressive rookie hit .337/.425/.561 in 27 regular season games. Today, 2:20 pm
  • Juan Uribe (chest) remains shut down
    Juan Uribe (chest) has yet to resume baseball activities.

    Advice: Uribe suffered a chest bruise diving for a ball on September 20 and hasn't made any notable progress. He's not expected to be ready should the Mets advance to the NLCS and would seem to be a question mark should they make it all the way to the World Series. Today, 1:33 pm

  • Red Sox remain committed to Hanley at 1B
    Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that the team remains "committed" to trying Hanley Ramirez at first base.

    Advice: The Red Sox signed Ramirez to be their starting left fielder this season, but that experiment proved to be a disaster. The hope was that he would be able to begin his transition to first base in September, but his shoulder injury prevented that. Barring a trade, he'll go into spring training as the first baseman, with Travis Shaw and Sam Travis functioning as insurance at the position. Today, 12:23 pm

  • Russell (hamstring) unlikely if Gm 5 needed
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Addison Russell (hamstring) would be doubtful to play in a potential NLDS Game 5 against the Cardinals on Thursday.

    Advice: Russell left Game 3 on Monday with left hamstring tightness and was sent for an MRI on Tuesday. The Cubs should have more clarity on his situation soon, but they aren't counting on him for the remainder of the NLDS. Javier Baez is starting at shortstop in Game 4 on Tuesday. Today, 11:28 am
  • Cano undergoes sports hernia surgery
    Robinson Cano underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair a sports hernia.

    Advice: Cano played through the injury during the second half. He'll need six weeks of recovery time, but should be good to go by spring training. Today, 11:00 am
  • Chase Utley's appeal hearing next Monday
    According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, Chase Utley will have the appeal hearing of his two-game suspension next Monday.

    Advice: Utley was handed a two-game suspension for his violent takeout slide of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada on Saturday. MLB wanted to expedite the hearing and have it before Game 3 of the NLDS, but his representatives wanted more time to prepare. He'll remain active for the remainder of the NLDS and potentially the first two games of the NLCS if the Dodgers advance. If the Dodgers are eliminated this week and the suspension is upheld, he would serve the suspension at the start of the 2016 season. Today, 9:57 am
  • Russell (hamstring) not in lineup for Game 4
    Addison Russell (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Russell left Game 3 on Monday with left hamstring tightness. No word yet on the severity, but he'll sit as the Cubs attempt to move on to the NLCS. Javier Baez will start at shortstop. The full lineup: Dexter Fowler CF, Jorge Soler RF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Starlin Castro 2B, Kyle Schwarber LF, Miguel Montero C, Jason Hammel P, Baez SS. John Lackey will start for St. Louis. Today, 9:32 am
  • Utley won't have appeal hearing Tuesday
    Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports hears from a source that Chase Utley will not have his appeal hearing for his two-game suspension on Tuesday.

    Advice: This confirms what was reported by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman on Monday. Utley will be active for Game 4 as the Dodgers attempt to keep their season alive, but he's unlikely to start the game with left-hander Steven Matz on the hill for New York. Today, 9:03 am
  • Russell (hamstring) to be reevaluated Tuesday
    Addison Russell (hamstring) is scheduled to be reevaluated Tuesday.

    Advice: Russell exited Monday's game against the Cardinals after he felt a "grab" in his left hamstring. He downplayed the situation, but his availability for Game 4 on Tuesday is uncertain. Today, 6:51 am
  • Tolleson elects free agency
    Steve Tolleson has elected free agency.

    Advice: Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos accused Tolleson of quitting on the team earlier this year over an injury. Needless to say, he's highly unlikely to return. Today, 5:53 am

  • Howie Kendrick goes deep in Dodgers' loss
    Howie Kendrick singled and smacked a three-run homer in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Kendrick's longball was a stats-padder if there ever was one, as he homered in the ninth inning to cut the Mets' lead to 13-7. It's been a nice series so far for the veteran second baseman, as he has picked up five hits over 13 at-bats while driving in four runs. Adrian Gonzalez also homered for the Dodgers in a losing effort. Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Donovan Solano outrighted to Triple-A
    Marlins sent INF Donovan Solano outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: He's no longer on the 40-man roster. Solano hit just .189/.215/.244 for the Fish this season. Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Addison Russell leaves with tight hamstring
    Addison Russell exited Monday's game against the Cardinals with left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: The young infielder evidently felt something in the hamstring as he was legging out a triple in the fourth inning. It's unclear at this point if the ailment might cause him to miss some games, but the Cubs should offer an update on Russell later Monday. Yesterday, 4:41 pm
  • Correa homers twice, plates four in HOU loss
    Carlos Correa homered twice and doubled in the Astros' ALDS Game 4 loss to the Royals on Monday.

    Advice: Correa hit a solo shot in the bottom of the third, roped an RBI double down the right field line in the bottom of the fifth, and then put the Astros up 5-2 with a towering two-run shot to left field in the bottom of the seventh. But the young shortstop let a bad-hop groundball jump over his glove in the top of the eighth and the Royals rattled off five runs in that frame. Correa hit a leadoff single in the bottom of the ninth, but the Astros were down 9-6 at that point and Royals closer Wade Davis was able to convert the save. Correa is the youngest player in American League history to homer twice in a game. He finished the day 4-for-4 with two runs scored and four RBI. Yesterday, 2:14 pm

  • Rollins starting over Seager in NLDS Game 3
    Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop and batting second for the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday.

    Advice: Seager picked up just one hit in eight plate appearances in the first two games and that was apparently enough to convince manager Don Mattingly to give Rollins a shot. The Dodgers also have Enrique Hernandez in center field for the second straight game after Joc Pederson started Game 1. Yesterday, 1:19 pm

  • Utley's suspension appeal won't happen Tues.
    Chase Utley's two-game suspension appeal will not be heard on Tuesday either.

    Advice: Major League Baseball suspended Utley two games on Sunday night for his takeout slide of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada in NLDS Game 2. But the veteran infielder appealed that punishment and the hearing isn't going to take place within the next two days despite MLB's hope that it would. Utley, his agent, and the players union need more time to prepare, so the 36-year-old backup infielder will be available for both games in New York. The appeal hearing should happen before a potential Game 5 back in Los Angeles. Yesterday, 11:10 am
  • Mets' Tejada will not need surgery on his leg
    Ruben Tejada will not need surgery for the non-displaced fracture in his right fibula.

    Advice: Tejada suffered the injury on a Chase Utley takeout slide in Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday night at Dodger Stadium. He'll be in a cast for the next 6-8 weeks and should be recovered by spring training. Wilmer Flores has taken over as the Mets' starting shortstop and Matt Reynolds was added to the NLDS roster on Monday to provide middle infield depth. Yesterday, 10:46 am

  • Utley eligible to play in Game 3 on Monday
    Chase Utley is eligible to play in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday night in New York.

    Advice: Utley was issued a two-game suspension Sunday for his vicious takeout slide of Ruben Tejada in Game 2 on Saturday night, but the veteran infielder has appealed the punishment and the appeal hearing won't happen before Game 3. It might not happen before Game 4 either. Citi Field is going to be a raucous place if Utley takes the field. Yesterday, 9:03 am
  • Ruben Tejada (leg) pulled off Mets' DS roster
    Ruben Tejada (leg) has been pulled off the Mets' NLDS roster.

    Advice: And minor league middle infielder Matt Reynolds has officially replaced him. Tejada suffered a fractured right fibula in Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday when Chase Utley barreled into him at -- or rather beyond -- the second base bag. Wilmer Flores has taken over as the Mets' starting shortstop. Utley was suspended two games for the slide. Yesterday, 8:33 am

  • Alcides Escobar leading off in ALDS Game 4
    Alcides Escobar will start at shortstop and bat leadoff in Game 4 of the ALDS Monday against the Astros.

    Advice: It's the same lineup the Royals have used this entire series: Alcides Escobar SS, Ben Zobrist 2B, Lorenzo Cain CF, Eric Hosmer 1B, Kendrys Morales DH, Mike Moustakas 3B, Salvador Perez C, Alex Gordon LF, Alex Rios RF. Yordano Ventura will be on the mound with Kansas City down 2-1 in the best-of-five. Lance McCullers is starting for Houston. Yesterday, 7:38 am
  • Utley (suspension) likely available for Gm. 3
    Chase Utley's two-game suspension appeal is unlikely to be heard on Monday, according to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal.

    Advice: Major League Baseball was hoping to fit in a hearing before Game 3 on Monday night in New York, but that's not nearly enough time for Utley, his agent, and the players union to prepare their case. It can take up to two weeks for the whole process to play out during the regular season. Utley was given the punishment for breaking Ruben Tejada's leg with a takeout slide in Game 2. The veteran infielder will be available for the Dodgers in Game 3 and perhaps even Game 4. Yesterday, 7:33 am
  • MLB wants Utley appeal hearing before Gm. 3
    According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, Major League Baseball wants Chase Utley's appeal hearing to happen before Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday night in New York.

    Advice: Utley was suspended two games by Major League Baseball on Sunday for breaking the leg of Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada on a takeout slide during Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday. Utley has appealed the suspension and players are allowed to stay active until their appeals are heard. Major League Baseball is trying to rush that process, but the players union has requested more time for Utley to prepare his case. During the regular season, suspension appeals can take up to two weeks. Yesterday, 5:58 am
  • Tulowitzki homers, plates four to lead Jays
    Troy Tulowitzki went 2-for-3 with a homer and four RBI as the Blue Jays defeated the Rangers 5-1 on Sunday to stave off elimination and force a Game 4 in the ALDS.

    Advice: Tulo stepped to the plate with the bases loaded in the fourth inning, drawing a walk to increase the Jays' advantage to 2-0. He then tagged Chi Chi Gonzalez with a monstrous three-run homer in the sixth inning, delivering the knockout punch to put the Jays up 5-0. He then singled in his final at-bat, finishing the night 2-for-3 after being held hitless in the first two games of the series. Sunday, 8:21 pm
  • Chase Utley suspended two games for slide
    Chase Utley has been suspended for two games for his late slide that broke the leg of Mets' shortstop Ruben Tejada during Game 2 of the NLDS.

    Advice: Utley plans on appealing the suspension, and if the appeal isn't heard before Monday he could still be eligible to play. As a reserve infielder, his suspension won't play a major role on the Dodgers chances of advancing to the NLCS, but it shows that Major League Baseball may be willing to start taking a hard stance on similar type of plays. Expect to see changes to the rules this offseason to protect the infielders on such plays. Sunday, 7:30 pm
  • Chase Utley passes concussion test Saturday
    Chase Utley passed his concussion test administered after colliding with Ruben Tejada on his hotly-debated takeout slide from Saturday's victory over the Mets.

    Advice: Utley is not experiencing any concussion-like symptoms after the collision and will be available for Game 3 of the series on Monday. Sunday, 2:02 pm
  • Ruben Tejada suffers broken leg on Utley slide
    X-rays on Ruben Tejada's injured leg showed a fractured right fibula.

    Advice: He was carted off in the seventh inning after getting undercut by Chase Utley on a controversial slide at second base. Obviously, Tejada will be sidelined for the remainder of the postseason. Wilmer Flores will take over at shortstop. Saturday, 9:35 pm

  • Ruben Tejada carted off after vicious Utley slide
    Ruben Tejada was carted off in the seventh inning after suffering a right leg injury in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: Wilmer Flores took his place at shortstop. Tejada suffered the injury on a vicious slide by Chase Utley that would have earned him a red card in soccer. We'll wait to hear the extent of the injury but it didn't look good. Tejada struck out in both of his at-bats Saturday. Saturday, 9:02 pm

  • Kolten Wong goes yard in Game 2 loss
    Kolten Wong crushed a home run Saturday in the Cardinals’ loss to the Cubs in Game 2 of the NLDS.

    Advice: He drilled a solo blast off Kyle Hendricks in the fifth inning. Each of Wong’s 10 career postseason hits have gone for extra bases. Wong struck out and lined to center in his other two at-bats. The series is tied at one heading into Game 3 Monday at Wrigley Field. Saturday, 5:49 pm

  • Howie Kendrick hitting out of the leadoff spot
    Howie Kendrick will bat leadoff for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Mets on Saturday.

    Advice: Carl Crawford, who hit leadoff in Game 1, has been moved down to sixth in the order. Kendrick hasn't started a game out of the leadoff spot since June 11, 2014. He went 2-for-4 hitting second in last night's opener. Kendrick is hitless in three lifetime at-bats against tonight's starter, Noah Syndergaard. Saturday, 1:27 pm
  • Carlos Correa (knee) good to go for Game 3
    Carlos Correa (knee) said after Friday's game that he will play in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Royals on Sunday.

    Advice: Correa fouled a ball of his knee for the second consecutive game on Friday, and while he's dealing with pain and swelling, it isn't going to keep him out of the Astros lineup. Friday, 6:13 pm

  • Corey Seager batting third in NLDS Game 1
    Corey Seager is starting at shortstop and batting third for the Dodgers in Friday's Game 1 of the NLDS versus the Mets.

    Advice: Just two of Seager's 21 starts in the majors have come in the third spot in the lineup, but clearly manager Don Mattingly has plenty of faith in the 21-year-old's bat. And why shouldn't he, given Seager's .337/.425/.561 batting line to start his career. Also worth noting is that, as expected, Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are at the corner outfield spots and Yasiel Puig is on the bench. Friday, 2:14 pm
  • Ruben Tejada starting at SS in Game 1
    Ruben Tejada is starting at shortstop and batting eighth in Game 1 of the NLDS versus the Dodgers.

    Advice: Wilmer Flores has been battling strep throat of late, and while he's available off the bench, the Mets are going with the stronger defender at shortstop in Tejada. Also noteworthy is that Michael Cuddyer is in left field over Michael Conforto, as expected, versus lefty Clayton Kershaw. Friday, 2:09 pm

  • Tulo batting fifth for Jays in Game 1 of ALDS
    Troy Tulowitzki is batting fifth for the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the ALDS Thursday against the Rangers.

    Advice: Tulo missed much of September with a small crack in his shoulder blade and acknowledged this week that he is not yet 100 percent, but the star shortstop will play through the pain for however long the Blue Jays can make a run. The full starting lineup for Game 1: Ben Revere LF, Josh Donaldson 3B, Jose Bautista RF, Edwin Encarnacion DH, Troy Tulowitzki SS, Justin Smoak 1B, Russell Martin C, Ryan Goins 2B, Kevin Pillar CF. David Price is on the mound for the Jays, who are in their first postseason since 1993. Thursday, 9:01 am
  • Tulowitzki (shoulder) ready to go for ALDS
    Troy Tulowitzki (shoulder) said Tuesday that he's not pain-free, but he's ready to go for the ALDS against the Rangers.

    Advice: Tulowitzki suffered a small crack in his shoulder blade in a collision with teammate Kevin Pillar on September 12, but he returned to action over the weekend and went 3-for-8 in two games. "I'm not pain-free," said Tulowitzki. "Some soreness in there, as can be expected. But that doesn't mean I can't play." With Tulo back in the lineup, Ryan Goins will likely move back to second base while Cliff Pennington will slide into a bench role. Wednesday, 7:08 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. Tuesday, 10:44 am

  • Seager hits solo home run in perfect finish
    Corey Seager finished out the 2015 regular season with a perfect day, going 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in Sunday's win over the Padres.

    Advice: Seager clubbed his fourth home run of the season in the sixth inning. While he only saw 98 at-bats this season, he made the most of them while working to a superb .337/.425/.561 triple-slash with four homers and 17 RBI. On Saturday, Jimmy Rollins said that the Dodgers would be rolling with Seager in the playoffs, so he'll have a chance to become a household name if he delivers over the next few weeks. Oct 4, 3:33 pm
  • Red Sox want Hanley Ramirez to lose weight
    Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that the club has asked Hanley Ramirez to show up to spring training 15-20 pounds lighter.

    Advice: Ramirez deal with various bumps and bruises throughout the 2015 season, with his campaign ending early due to a sore right shoulder. There's certainly no guarantee that slimming down would have prevented any of the ailments, but the Red Sox would nevertheless like Ramirez to shed some weight. Ramirez will move to first base next season. Oct 4, 10:28 am

  • 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. Oct 4, 9:23 am
    W, 1-0 vs x Was
  • Robinson Cano hits three-run homer
    Robinson Cano went 2-for-5 and hit a three-run homer against the A's on Saturday.

    Advice: Cano has hit .332 with 15 homers and 49 RBI in 69 games during the second half of the season, even while playing through a hernia that's going to require surgery in the offseason. If the Comeback Player of the Year award was for bouncing back during a season, Cano would be a shoo-in. Oct 3, 11:07 pm
  • Ruben Tejada expected to start in playoffs
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Ruben Tejada would likely be his starter at shortstop for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: While Wilmer Flores offers much more offensively, Tejada is the more sure-handed fielder and runs should be at a premium with Clayton Kershaw on the hill for the Dodgers. Flores has also been dealing with strep throat in recent days though, and his health may prelude him from playing a major role early in October. Oct 3, 7:57 am

  • Seager to start at shortstop during playoffs
    Jimmy Rollins confirmed Friday that the Dodgers have decided to roll with rookie Corey Seager at shortstop for the postseason.

    Advice: Rollins noted, "We had a conversation and that's the way it was said: 'We're going to go with the kid. That's the lineup we feel is best.'" The 21-year-old phenom has been outstanding in his limited time with the big league club, slashing .316/.404/.516 with three homers and 16 RBI in 95 at-bats. Oct 3, 6:12 am
  • Tulowitzki collects two hits in return Friday
    Troy Tulowitzki (shoulder) returned to the Blue Jays starting lineup on Friday, going 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored.

    Advice: It's as if the hard-hitting shortstop didn't miss a beat. He showed no signs of rust after having been sidelined since September 12 due to a crack in his shoulder blade. He's expected to be rested on Saturday and will play in the regular season finale on Sunday. Oct 3, 5:48 am
  • Carlos Correa homers, triples in rout
    Carlos Correa came up a double shy of the cycle and drove in four runs as the Astros crushed the Diamondbacks 21-5N on Friday.

    Advice: It's certainly to the Astros' advantage that they got to go against an NL team playing out the string as they attempt to clinch a spot in the postseason. Correa, George Springer and Colby Rasmus all scored four times in the Astros' rout tonight. Correa's homer was his 22nd of the year, but the triple was his first as a major leaguer. Oct 2, 10:37 pm
