  • Marco Gonzales (elbow) resumes throwing
    Marco Gonzales (elbow) has resumed throwing.

    Advice: "I've been throwing for a couple of weeks now," he said. "I’m really happy with the progress and I know everyone that I’ve been working with down here is happy with it too." The left-hander is about six months removed from Tommy John surgery. Gonzalez has been throwing from 60 feet three times a week and will advance to 90 feet next week. If all goes well, he'll begin mound work in December. He should be ready to help the Cardinals' bullpen at some point in 2017. Today, 3:49 pm

  • Phillies could make Vincent Velasquez available's Todd Zolecki said he would not be surprised if the Phillies looked to trade Vincent Velasquez this offseason.

    Advice: The Phillies entertained offers for Velasquez around the trade deadline but never pulled the trigger. Velasquez got off to a solid start this year but ran out of gas in the second half (5.33 ERA after the All-Star break). Velasquez arrived in Philly last offseason in a trade that sent star closer Ken Giles to Houston. The rebuilding Phillies could probably land a nice haul of prospects for Velasquez, who turned 24 in June. Today, 3:38 pm
  • Vargas will pitch in Mexican Winter League
    The Padres announced Saturday that Cesar Vargas (elbow) will pitch in the Mexican Winter League.

    Advice: The right-hander missed the final four months of the regular season due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow. He posted a 5.03 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and 28/15 K/BB ratio across 34 innings before the injury struck. Today, 10:29 am
    60-Day DL

  • Padres remain hopeful Rea can avoid surgery
    According to AJ Cassavell of, the Padres remain hopeful that Colin Rea will be able to avoid Tommy John surgery.

    Advice: He's trying the path of rest, rehab and platelet-rich plasma injections instead of opting for surgery and everything appears to be progressing nicely. Cassavell notes that he's about three weeks away from facing live hitters. The Padres are mulling their potential options for Rea, which could include sending him to the Arizona Fall League or winter ball to get some work in. Today, 7:01 am

  • 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. Yesterday, 12:09 pm

  • Blanton gives up go-ahead homer in loss
    Joe Blanton gave up a go-ahead two-run homer to Addison Russell in the sixth inning in Thursday’s Game 5 loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Blanton is one of the reasons the Dodgers have managed to make it this far this season, as he posted a 2.48 ERA and 80/26 K/BB ratio over 80 innings during the regular season. He also pitched well (and often) during the NLDS against the Nationals. But he might be running on fumes at this point. The veteran right-hander has allowed seven runs on seven hits (including three homers and a double) and two walks in three innings so far during the NLCS. Thursday, 9:30 pm

  • Strasburg expected to have normal winter
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, agent Scott Boras said Thursday that Stephen Strasburg (elbow) is expected to have a normal throwing schedule this offseason and be ready for spring training.

    Advice: Strasburg suffered a partial tear of the pronator tendon in his elbow on September 7. He threw a couple of bullpen sessions this month, but was unable to make it back for the NLDS. The expectation is that he'll be fine after the long offseason, but this situation will obviously be worth monitoring in the spring. Strasburg, 28, posted a 3.60 ERA and 183/44 K/BB over 147 2/3 innings this season. Thursday, 5:01 pm
    W, 10-7 vs Mia
  • 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

  • Four-run fourth dooms Urias in NLCS Gm. 4
    Jose Urias was hit hard in the fourth inning of Wednesday's 10-2 loss to the Cubs in Game 4 of the NLCS, surrendering four runs in the frame.

    Advice: Urias held the Cubs scoreless over three innings before they finally broke out of their recent offensive slump. In the fourth, the young southpaw surrendered an RBI single to Willson Contreras and an RBI groundout to Jason Heyward to put the Dodgers down 2-0. Addison Russell subsequently came through with a two-run homer to boost the road team to a 4-0 advantage. Urias struck out four and walked two on the evening, scattering four hits along the way. With the series now knotted at two games apiece, Jon Lester and Kenta Maeda will square off in Game 5 before the series shifts back to Chicago. Wednesday, 9:10 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

  • Tommy Milone has elected free agency
    Tommy Milone has elected free agency.

    Advice: Milone was removed from the Twins' 40-man roster and has decided to get an early jump on free agency. The left-hander held a 5.71 ERA over 19 appearances -- 12 starts -- this season and it wouldn't be a surprise if he wound up having to settle for a minor league deal. Monday, 9:43 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
    W, 3-2 @KC
  • 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. Monday, 5:39 pm
    W, 3-2 @KC
  • Dodgers confirm Julio Urias as Game 4 starter
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts confirmed Monday that Julio Urias will start Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: It had been the presumption, but Roberts didn't want to make it official until Monday. Urias didn't make a start during the NLDS victory over the Nationals but tossed two scoreless innings in a relief appearance. Roberts will have a quick hook for the rookie if he shows early signs of struggles. At 20 years and 68 days, Urias will be the youngest starter in postseason history. Monday, 5:06 pm
  • Pat Dean outrighted to Triple-A
    Twins sent LHP Pat Dean outright to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: Dean held a 6.28 ERA over 19 games -- nine starts -- for the Twins in 2016. He's now off the 40-man roster. Monday, 3:37 pm

  • Tommy Milone outrighted to Triple-A
    Twins sent LHP Tommy Milone outright to Triple-A Rochester.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. Milone posted a 5.71 ERA over 19 appearances -- 12 starts -- for the Twins this season. He's arbitration-eligible this winter but is sure to be non-tendered. Monday, 3:32 pm

  • Nationals release Bronson Arroyo
    Nationals released RHP Bronson Arroyo.

    Advice: Arroyo tried to revitalize his career this summer in the Nationals' minor league system, but ongoing shoulder and elbow troubles scrapped that idea. It's not clear whether the 39-year-old right-hander is planning another comeback attempt. Monday, 9:02 am

  • Donn Roach elects free agency
    Donn Roach has elected free agency.

    Advice: Roach was outrighted off the Athletics' 40-man roster earlier this month. The 26-year-old right-hander owns a rough 5.77 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 39 career innings at the major league level. Monday, 9:00 am

    W, 3-2 @Sea
  • Brandon Beachy elects free agency
    Brandon Beachy has elected to become a free agent.

    Advice: 2016 was another lost season for Beachy, who's made just two starts at the major league level since 2013 due to elbow issues. The 30-year-old right-hander will have to prove his health before another team takes a chance. Monday, 8:49 am
    7-Day DL
    L, 7-1 @SF
  • Sean O'Sullivan elects free agency
    Sean O'Sullivan has elected to become a free agent.

    Advice: O'Sullivan was pushed off Boston's 40-man roster in August after registering a 6.75 ERA in 21 1/3 innings out of the Red Sox bullpen. The 29-year-old right-hander will likely have to settle for a minor league contract on the open market. Monday, 8:30 am

  • Julio Urias a strong option to start Game 4
    According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, Julio Urias is throwing a bullpen session on Sunday and is a "strong option" to start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cubs.

    Advice: The Dodgers are rolling with Rich Hill in Game 3 and the writing is certainly on the wall for the young southpaw to get the ball in the fourth game of the series. He has allowed a hit and a pair of walks over two scoreless innings so far this postseason. Sunday, 2:34 pm
  • Trevor Bauer (finger) has played catch twice
    Trevor Bauer has played catch twice since suffering a lacerated right pinky finger while repairing his drone.

    Advice: Bauer was pushed back from Game 2 to Game 3 of the ALCS following the incident, but the Indians expect him to be fine to pitch Monday in Toronto. The club will obviously keep a close eye on him to make sure the injury isn't affecting him at all. "The first concern is that you hope it doesn't interfere with his touch and feel to pitch," said manager Terry Francona. "I don't think that's an issue because he's already thrown twice. Then we have to make sure that the thing doesn't open up to where it's bleeding, because they won't let him pitch." Sunday, 6:35 am
    W, 3-2 @KC
  • Alex Wood, Enrique Hernandez on NLCS roster
    Alex Wood is on the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS against the Cubs.

    Advice: As previously reported, Enrique Hernandez will also be included on the Dodgers' roster. Charlie Culberson and Austin Barnes were both on the NLDS roster, but they didn't make the cut for this series. Wood finished the regular season in a relief role after returning from an elbow injury and will give Dodgers manager Dave Roberts another lefty option out of the bullpen. Saturday, 9:31 am
  • Trevor Bauer (pinky) pushed back to Game 3
    Trevor Bauer's first start of the ALCS has been pushed back to Game 3 after he suffered a non-baseball injury to his right pinky.

    Advice: Bauer apparently cut the outside of his pinky while repairing his drone. Seriously. He'll get a couple extra days to heal and will start the first game in Toronto, with Josh Tomlin moving up to start Game 2 in Cleveland. Corey Kluber is opposing Marco Estrada in Game 1 on Friday. Friday, 12:07 pm
    W, 3-2 @KC
  • Strasburg (elbow) will not be ready for NLCS
    Nationals manager Dusty Baker confirmed Thursday that Stephen Strasburg (elbow) is not going to be an option the NLCS.

    Advice: "He won't be available for the next series," Baker told reporters before Game 5 of the NLDS. "It would be a miracle if he was." Strasburg felt renewed discomfort in his right elbow while throwing a bullpen session Monday and can probably be ruled out for the postseason entirely. He was diagnosed in early September with a pronator tendon strain. Thursday, 1:08 pm
