  • Infante delivers two-run homer in Game 2 win
    Omar Infante went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run in a World Series Game 2 win over the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: Infante was one of the Royals' worst offensive performers during the regular season, but he came up big in Game 2. He doubled and scored the Royals' second run in the second inning, and his two-run blast off Hunter Strickland capped a five-run sixth inning that decided the outcome of the game. The homer was his first in 145 career postseason at-bats. It was a good time for it, as the Royals needed a split to stand a chance heading to San Francisco for a three-game set that starts Friday.

  • Indians expected to exercise option on Aviles
    The Indians are expected to exercise their 2015 option on Mike Aviles.

    Advice: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti said a few weeks ago that he was undecided on Aviles and his $3.5 million option, but Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the team is leaning toward bringing him back. Aviles hit just .247/.273/.343 last season but appeared at six different positions and offers a veteran presence. The Indians don't officially have to make a decision on the 33-year-old until three days after the end of the World Series. Rotoworld.com

  • Nix replaces Colon on Royals' WS roster
    Jayson Nix has replaced Christian Colon on the Royals' roster for the World Series.

    Advice: Colon logged two plate appearances between the ALDS and ALCS while serving as a backup infielder. Nix was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in late August and appeared in seven games for the Royals down the stretch. This is the Royals' only roster change for the World Series against the Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • Pedro Ciriaco catches on with Braves
    Braves signed INF Pedro Ciriaco to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Ciriaco had been removed from the Royals' 40-man roster. The 29-year-old infielder will presumably receive an invitation to spring training and compete for a utility job. Rotoworld.com

  • Cord Phelps opts to explore free agency
    Cord Phelps has elected free agency.

    Advice: The 27-year-old infielder got just three at-bats with the Orioles in 2014, spending most of his time at Triple-A Norfolk where he slashed .259/.361/.388 with seven homers and 51 RBI in 99 contests. He'll look for an opportunity to compete for a utility role elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Eddie Rosario continues hot hitting in AFL
    Twins prospect Eddie Rosario continued his hot hitting in Arizona Fall League play on Friday, going 3-for-6 with a run scored as Salt River and Peoria played to a 3-3 tie.

    Advice: Rosario also swiped a pair of bases in the ballgame, giving him six steals in seven games in Arizona. He's hitting a blistering .455 (15-for-33) in the early going with five RBI and four runs scored. The 23-year-old outfielder is expected to return to Double-A New Britain to begin the 2015 campaign.

  • Brian Roberts retires after 14 MLB seasons
    Brian Roberts announced his retirement from professional baseball on Friday.

    Advice: A first round pick of the Orioles in 1999, the 37-year-old spent all but the final season of his 14-year big league career in Baltimore. The two-time All-Star finishes with a career slash of .276/.347/.409 with 97 homers, 542 RBI and 285 stolen bases. His last few years were marred by injuries, as he averaged just 57 games per season over his final five years. Rotoworld.com

  • Phillies outright Andres Blanco to Triple-A
    Phillies sent INF Andres Blanco outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a procedural move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Phillies. The 30-year-old infielder appeared in 25 games with the Phillies in 2014, slashing .277/.306/.447 with a homer and three RBI in 47 at-bats. Rotoworld.com

  • Flaherty hits solo home run in loss to Royals
    Ryan Flaherty hit a solo home run, the only run the Orioles could muster on the afternoon, in Wednesday's ALCS Game 4 loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Flaherty's home run off Royals starter Jason Vargas in the third inning cut the Royals' lead to 2-1, but it was as close as the Orioles would come. Surprisingly, Flaherty finished the series as one of the Orioles' most productive hitters, batting .333 (4-for-12) with a home run and three RBI. Rotoworld.com

  • Joaquin Arias plates run in loss to Cardinals
    Joaquin Arias got the Giants on the board with an RBI ground out in the fifth inning in a losing effort against the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Advice: Arias was pinch-hitting for Jake Peavy and made sure to get the job done in his only at-bat. It was the first at-bat of the postseason for the utility infielder who has been used very sparingly. Rotoworld.com
