  • Nicasio not on Dodgers' roster for the NLDS
    Juan Nicasio is not on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.

    Advice: Joel Peralta essentially gets the spot instead. Nicasio got off to a very good start this season, but he surrendered nine runs on 17 hits over his final nine innings. 29 minutes ago
  • Martin Perez starting ALDS Game 3 vs. Jays
    Martin Perez will start ALDS Game 3 against the Blue Jays.

    Advice: Perez registered a 3.38 ERA over his final 66 2/3 innings (11 starts) during the regular season. Yovani Gallardo is starting Game 1 on Thursday and Cole Hamels will take Game 2 on Friday. Derek Holland and Colby Lewis will both be available out of the bullpen in Game 1. Today, 9:39 am
  • Chad Qualls not on roster for the ALDS
    Chad Qualls is not on the Astros' ALDS roster.

    Advice: That is a mild surprise given that Qualls was included on the 25-man roster for Tuesday night's American League Wild Card Game, but it's not like he had a deserving regular season. The veteran right-hander posted a 4.38 ERA in 49 1/3 innings this summer for Houston. Today, 9:09 am
  • Jeremy Guthrie not on Royals' ALDS roster
    Jeremy Guthrie is not on the Royals' ALDS roster.

    Advice: That's not a surprise. Guthrie made two starts in last year's World Series, but the veteran right-hander registered a rough 5.95 ERA and 1.55 WHIP across 148 1/3 innings during the 2015 regular season. Kris Medlen and Chris Young both made the ALDS roster over him. Today, 8:47 am
  • Dylan Bundy (shoulder) throws off mound
    Dylan Bundy (shoulder) threw off a mound Wednesday for the first time in more than four months.

    Advice: Bundy was limited to eight Double-A starts this season due to a calcification in his right shoulder that became a constant source of discomfort. He's back near full health now and could pitch in the Arizona Fall League or some type of winter league to make up for lost time. The 22-year-old right-hander is out of minor league options, so he's going to be on the Orioles' roster next season. Today, 8:42 am

  • Kazmir to start Game 2 of ALDS vs Royals
    Scott Kazmir will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Royals on Friday.

    Advice: Collin McHugh will be starting Game 1 on Thursday, followed by Kazmir in Game 2 on Friday and Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 on Sunday. For his part, July acquisition Kazmir struggled down the stretch, posting an ERA of 5.89 over nine starts since August 17. Expect him to be on a short leash if signs of his earlier struggles begin to surface on Friday. Yesterday, 2:55 pm
  • Phillies outright Pettibone to Triple-A
    Phillies activated RHP Jonathan Pettibone from the 15-day disabled list; outrighted him to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: The 25-year-old Pettibone has been making his way back from multiple shoulder surgeries, the most recent being on July 22. In his rookie season of 2013, he pitched to a 4.04 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. Obviously, his future in the majors will depend on how he rebounds from the tough arm ailments. Yesterday, 1:59 pm

  • Phillies outright Roberts to Triple-A
    Phillies sent LHP Ken Roberts outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Roberts started the season in Colorado's system before he was waived in late August. The Phillies subsequently picked him up. In 13 2/3 major league innings between the two clubs, the 27-year-old southpaw allowed 22 hits and 11 runs. Yesterday, 1:54 pm

  • Phillies outright Loewen to Triple-A
    Phillies sent LHP Adam Loewen outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: Loewen was actually a position player in 2011, but transitioned over to pitcher. While he posted some nice minor league numbers, he struggled in his major league duty this season, pitching to a 6.98 ERA, 1.91 WHIP and 22/17 K/BB ratio across 19 1/3 innings. Yesterday, 1:38 pm

  • Phillies outright De Fratus to Triple-A
    Phillies sent RHP Justin De Fratus outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: De Fratus turned in 80 innings with the Phillies this season, pitching to a 5.51 ERA and 1.55 WHIP. Needless to say, there's little reason to expect fantasy value from him heading into 2016. Yesterday, 1:34 pm

  • Brewers claim RHP Guerra off waivers
    Brewers claimed RHP Junior Guerra off waivers from the White Sox.

    Advice: Guerra, a converted catcher, made three appearances with the White Sox this season and posted a 3.13 ERA and 105/33 K/BB ratio over 83 1/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A. He turns 31 in January, but the Brewers are willing to take a chance on him. Yesterday, 11:49 am
  • Johnson won't be used in playoffs
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday that Jim Johnson has returned home and is not under consideration for the playoff roster.

    Advice: Johnson isn't even going to the instructional league to stay fresh, which says a lot about his standing with the team. The veteran right-hander struggled miserably after coming over to the Dodgers at the trade deadline, posting a 10.13 ERA over 23 appearances. Yesterday, 11:19 am
  • Scheppers suffered cut on finger celebrating
    Tanner Scheppers suffered a cut on his right index finger during the Rangers' post-clinching celebration on Sunday.

    Advice: The cut required five stitches. While a handful of players were sent to the instructional league to stay sharp in case they are needed during the postseason, Scheppers remains in Arlington. The 28-year-old struggled to the tune of a 5.63 ERA in 42 appearances this season. Yesterday, 10:21 am
    W, 9-2 vs LAA
  • Gilmartin traveling to LA with team
    Sean Gilmartin will travel with the Mets to Los Angeles for the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He'll be on the NLDS roster if Steven Matz (back) isn't able to pitch. Gilmartin posted a 2.67 ERA and 54/18 K/BB ratio over 57 1/3 innings this season. Yesterday, 9:11 am
  • Dillon Gee elects free agency
    Dillon Gee has elected to become a free agent.

    Advice: Gee had the right to opt for free agency because he has three years of service time and wasn't added back to the major league roster after being outrighted to Triple-A during the season. The 29-year-old posted a 5.90 ERA in seven starts and one relief appearance with the Mets this season, but he could compete for a rotation spot somewhere next spring. Yesterday, 5:48 am

  • Perez tosses seven sterling innings vs LAA
    Martin Perez turned in a great start against the Angels on Friday, allowing just one run on four hits over seven innings.

    Advice: Perez struck out four and walked one on the evening. The lone run to score against him came on a C.J. Cron RBI single in the very first inning. Otherwise, nothin' doing for the Angels with Martin on the mound. This season, he showed some flashes, though his 4.46 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 48/24 K/BB ratio over 78 2/3 innings leave a little something to be desired. The 24-year-old southpaw will try to improve on those numbers next spring. Friday, 8:06 pm
  • Gilmartin surrenders two runs vs Phillies
    Sean Gilmartin pitched well over five innings in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Phillies, allowing two runs on three hits.

    Advice: Gilmartin struck out three and walked one on the afternoon. The only real mistake he made came in the fourth inning, when he served up a two-run gopher ball to Darin Ruf. This was the 25-year-old southpaw's first start of the season. He's pitched exclusively from the bullpen otherwise while working his way to a 2.67 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 54/18 K/BB ratio across 57 1/3 innings. He'll return to the pen for the Mets' playoff run. Thursday, 11:33 am
  • Kazmir continues late-season swoon
    Scott Kazmir pitched poorly yet again in a no-decision against the Mariners on Wednesday, surrendering six runs (four earned) on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: Three of the six runs against Kazmir scored via back-to-back home runs by Kyle Seager and Nelson Cruz in the fifth inning. Seager's was of the two-run variety. The rough outing was just a continuation of the southpaw's slow fade. In nine starts since August 17, he holds a hide-the-children 5.89 ERA. That his overall ERA still sits at 3.10 is a testament to how well he pitched before the wheels wobbled and then completely fell off. Kazmir has to be hoping that the Astros can squeak into the playoffs and allow him a chance at redemption. Wednesday, 10:47 pm
