  • Twins sell LHP Kris Johnson to Japanese team
    Twins sold LHP Kris Johnson to Hiroshima Carp of the Japanese League.

    Advice: Johnson was sold for "mid six figures," according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The left-hander made three starts for the Twins in 2014, going 0-1 with a 4.73 ERA in 13 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com

  • Hester signs minor-league deal with Phillies
    Phillies signed C John Hester to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The deal includes an invitation to spring training. The 31-year-old was outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster in March and spent the year with their Triple-A affiliate, batting .261/.338/.411 in 71 games. With the Angels' claiming of Jackson Williams off waivers, Hester found a new organization where he might get a shot to provide some catching depth. Rotoworld.com

  • Angels claim C Jackson Williams from Rox
    Angels claimed C Jackson Williams off waivers from the Rockies.

    Advice: Williams underwent surgery in late September to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, but he should be ready for the start of spring training in 2015. The 28-year-old will function as organizational catching depth for the Angels. He was the 43rd overall pick in the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft but owns a weak .235/.307/.361 career batting line at the Triple-A level. Rotoworld.com

  • Haren undergoes arthroscopic shoulder surgery
    Dan Haren underwent arthroscopic surgery Wednesday afternoon on his left shoulder.

    Advice: It was a minor procedure on his non-throwing arm, and Haren should be fully recovered by the beginning of spring training next February. His $10 million option for 2015 vested near the end of the September, so the soft-tossing right-hander will presumably have a spot in the Los Angeles rotation next year. Haren registered a 2.09 ERA over his final seven starts in 2014. Rotoworld.com

  • Twins decline option on Jared Burton
    Twins declined RHP Jared Burton's $3.6 million club option for 2015.

    Advice: Burton will receive a $200,000 buyout and hit free agency. It's an expected move after he posted a mediocre 4.36 ERA and 46/25 K/BB ratio over 64 innings this past season. Rotoworld.com

  • No changes to Giants' lineup for WS Game 2
    Michael Morse will serve as the designated hitter again in Game 2 of the World Series against the Royals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Giants manager Bruce Bochy is sticking with the same lineup which led to victory in Game 1: Gregor Blanco CF, Joe Panik 2B, Buster Posey C, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Hunter Pence RF, Brandon Belt 1B, Morse DH, Travis Ishikawa LF, Brandon Crawford SS. Jake Peavy will make the start against Yordano Ventura. Rotoworld.com

  • Royals stick with regular lineup for WS Gm 2
    Alcides Escobar will bat leadoff in Game 2 of the World Series against the Giants on Wednesday.

    Advice: Royals manager Ned Yost isn't making any changes following Tuesday's Game 1 loss. The full lineup: Escobar SS, Nori Aoki RF, Lorenzo Cain CF, Eric Hosmer 1B, Billy Butler DH, Alex Gordon LF, Salvador Perez C, Omar Infante 2B, Mike Moustakas 3B. Yordano Ventura will oppose Jake Peavy. Rotoworld.com

  • Hunter leaning toward returning in 2015
    Torii Hunter indicated Wednesday that he's leaning toward continuing his playing career in 2015.

    Advice: Hunter hinted at retirement after the Tigers were bounced from the ALDS, but he has softened his stance since. While the 39-year-old hasn't made a final decision yet, he's clearly leaning in the direction of playing at least one more season. "I haven't even thought about it," said Hunter. "I'm traveling as we speak to watch my three boys play college football. There's definitely a good chance I will play again though." An impending free agent, Hunter would like to stay with the Tigers, but it's unclear whether the interest is mutual. Rotoworld.com

  • Cubs' Russell plays second base in AFL
    Cubs prospect Addison Russell has played second base in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Cubs president Theo Epstein said earlier this month that Russell would prepare to play multiple positions and the 20-year-old made his first start at second base last Monday. "Everything's going good," said Russell. "I missed nine weeks so not only the at-bats, I need to get some reps at short and possibly at second. That's what I'm working on right now." The Cubs still have Starlin Castro at shortstop, so they are simply keeping their options open. The logjam could ultimately be resolved with a trade. Rotoworld.com

  • Sabathia (knee) nearly 100 percent
    CC Sabathia (knee) is throwing twice a week and he feels "pretty much back to 100 percent."

    Advice: Sabathia had season-ending arthroscopic debridement surgery on his right knee in July as well as a bone spur removed. He began throwing off flat-ground in September. The original plan called for him to throw off a mound before Thanksgiving, but now he plans to wait until spring training. "Now that I know I feel pretty good, I don’t think there’s any reason for me to crank it up (until February)," said Sabathia. After being limited to just eight starts this season, the 34-year-old southpaw is owed $48 million from 2015-2016 while his contract includes a $25 million vesting option or $5 million buyout for 2017.

  • Bautista: Jays have 50-50 shot at Cabrera
    Jose Bautista said on Sportsnet 590 The FAN on Tuesday that he believes the Blue Jays have a "50-50" chance of re-signing Melky Cabrera.

    Advice: The Blue Jays are expected to make a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer to Cabrera, but they'll have to compete with the open market in order to keep him. "I think he’s going to allow the team a chance to come and match any offer that he might get out on the free agent market," said Bautista. "I think the Blue Jays are going to have a shot at bringing him back, so hopefully for our fan base and for my sake – making my job easier and having him on base a lot, because he does get on base a lot with his bat – hopefully the team does take that chance and re-sign him somehow." Cabrera batted .301/.351/.458 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI over 139 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Amaro expects Burnett to return in 2015
    Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. indicated Tuesday that he expects A.J. Burnett to return next season.

    Advice: Burnett has a $12.75 million player option for 2015 and has five days after the World Series to decide whether to accept or decline. The 37-year-old has hinted at retirement and hasn't made an official decision on his future, but Amaro believes that he'll be back. "I’m really kind of neutral on it," said Amaro. "I knew what it took to get him back and pitching this year. I would assume that he’d want to pitch again. I don’t have that information, but my inclination is that he’s going to want to pitch. He’s a competitive guy." Burnett posted a 4.59 ERA and 190/96 K/BB ratio over 213 2/3 innings this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bumgarner superb again, Giants take Game 1
    Madison Bumgarner was a beast again Tuesday, holding the Royals to one run over seven excellent frames in a 7-1 World Series Game 1 victory.

    Advice: He struck out five, walked one and allowed just three hits, with Salvador Perez’s solo homer in the seventh inning representing the only blemish on his record. The Royals were only able to muster one rally versus Bumgarner, and that was in the third inning after Brandon Crawford booted a ball to start the frame. MadBum wound up pitching out of that inning with a couple strikeouts and a groundout. Perez’s homer is the only run Bumgarner has allowed in the World Series in 22 career innings. He’ll get the ball again in Game 5, assuming the series lasts that long. Rotoworld.com

  • Three Frames James: Shields chased early
    James Shields lasted just three-plus innings Tuesday against the Giants, allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk in the World Series Game 1 loss.

    Advice: The Giants jumped on Shields early with two singles and an RBI double after the first four hitters of the game. Shields caught a break when Buster Posey was easily thrown out at home on a silly send from third base coach Tim Flannery, but the next batter, Hunter Pence, smashed a two-run shot over the center field wall. Pence also scored in the fourth after a leadoff double on a Michael Morse single that chased Shields. The Royals’ ace now has a 7.11 ERA over four starts this postseason. Despite Shields' struggles, Royals manager Ned Yost said after the game that the righty would get the ball in a potential Game 5. Rotoworld.com

  • Pence belts two-run shot in win over Royals
    Hunter Pence launched a two-run homer and reached base four times in Tuesday's World Series Game 1 win over the Royals.

    Advice: The Giants first dented the scoreboard on Pablo Sandoval's first-inning double, but Pence provided the big blow with a laser to center field that cleared the wall for a two-run shot. He later added a double and also drew a pair of walks. Every player in the Giants' lineup had a hit save for Travis Ishikawa, who was lifted after just one at-bat. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:54 pm
  • Pablo Sandoval drives in a pair in Game 1 win
    Pablo Sandoval went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and RBI single in Tuesday's victory over the Royals.

    Advice: Sandoval got the scoring going with a two-base knock in the first inning that plated Gregor Blanco and capped off the scoring with an RBI single in the seventh. He could have easily been credited with a third hit, but his hard smash to Mike Moustakas in the ninth inning was changed to an error. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:48 pm
  • Salvador Perez homers for Royals' lone run
    Salvador Perez smacked a solo homer for the Royals' only run in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Madison Bumgarner left a 1-2 cutter over the plate with two outs in the seventh, and Perez put it into the bullpen. It was all the Royals could manage offensively, as they were thwarted in their one rally in the third inning. Alcides Escobar, Billy Butler and Mike Moustakas had the other Royals' hits.

  • Rusney Castillo injures hand in AFL
    Rusney Castillo suffered a minor hand injury Monday in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Castillo will likely sit out much of this week as a precautionary measure, but he should ultimately be fine. The 27-year-old center fielder is batting .278/.333/.361 with three doubles, three walks, and six strikeouts in 39 plate appearances for the Surprise Saguaros. With good power and speed, he has the potential to carry significant fantasy value in 2015. Rotoworld.com

  • Phils re-sign Jerome Williams to $2.5M deal
    Phillies re-signed RHP Jerome Williams to a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

    Advice: The deal includes performance-based bonuses that could carry the total value up to $4 million. Williams was a nice surprise down the stretch this year for Philadelphia, posting a 2.83 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 38/17 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings (nine starts), but expecting him to replicate that success over a full season is probably foolish. The 32-year-old right-hander owns a 4.40 career ERA and a 1.36 career WHIP. Rotoworld.com

  • Royals starting Guthrie in Game 3 of WS
    Jeremy Guthrie will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Giants on Friday.

    Advice: He'll square off against Tim Hudson in San Francisco. Guthrie allowed one run over five innings in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles last Tuesday. Jason Vargas will follow him in Game 4. Guthrie is now lined up for a potential Game 7. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse in lineup as DH for Game 1 of WS

  • 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.

This is the Royals' only roster change for the World Series against the Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Zimmer reinjures shoulder in AFL
    Royals prospect right-hander Kyle Zimmer reinjured his right shoulder Saturday while pitching for Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Zimmer struck out 11 batters over five innings in his second AFL start, but he was forced to exit after just one inning on Saturday. The fear is that it's the same injury which limited Zimmer to 4 2/3 innings this season in the minors. The Royals will play it safe and shut him down for the rest of the fall. "More than likely, we're not going to push it any further this fall and just try to get this under control," said Royals assistant general manager J.J. Picollo. Rotoworld.com

  • Appel pitching well in Arizona Fall League
    Astros prospect right-hander Mark Appel has tossed 12 scoreless innings over three starts in the Arizona Fall League.

    Advice: Appel really struggled with High-A Lancaster this season, but he thrived after a promotion to Double-A Corpus Christi in late July and has kept it going so far in the Arizona Fall League. The 23-year-old tossed five scoreless innings in his latest outing on Monday and has allowed just four hits with a 12/3 K/BB ratio over his three starts. "I don't know if there's one thing I can pick out and say this is what I'm doing differently than in the season," said Appel. "I think it's a combination of continuing to work hard, not giving up and trusting my stuff. I've gotten here because I'd been doing some things the right way and I'm continuing on the same track I tried to finish the season on in Corpus Christi." Rotoworld.com

  • James Shields passed kidney stone during ALCS
    James Shields revealed Monday that he passed a kidney stone during the ALCS.

    Advice: Shields began feeling pain on October 12, and it made the Royals' decision to start Jason Vargas instead of Shields on regular rest in Game 4 on October 15 an easy one. He underwent a CT scan to determine the source of his discomfort but by then the team deduced he had already passed the stone. "It was excruciating pain," Shields said. "I wasn’t feeling good." Shields will get the ball in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 3:41 pm
  • Morse to serve as Giants' DH in World Series
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Monday that Michael Morse will be the team's DH in the World Series.

    Advice: Morse didn't make a start in the NLCS, but he did slug a big game-tying home run in the Giants' series-deciding Game 5 win over the Cardinals. He missed most of September with an oblique injury, which is why he was left off the roster for the NLDS and limited to pinch-hitting duties in the Championship Series. Travis Ishikawa will be the Giants' primary left fielder in the Fall Classic against the Royals. Rotoworld.com

  • Bumgarner set to start World Series Game 1
    Madison Bumgarner will start Tuesday's Game 1 of the World Series for the Giants.

    Advice: Bumgarner finished off the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS Thursday, so he'll be on regular rest for Tuesday's Game 1. The southpaw is 2-1 in four starts this postseason, and he owns a 2.67 ERA in 67 1/3 career postseason innings. He'll be opposed by James Shields for the Royals. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:28 pm
  • James Shields will start World Series Game 1
    Royals manager announced Saturday that James Shields will get the ball for Game 1 of the World Series against the Giants.

    Advice: No surprises here, as Big Game James is the true ace of the Royals staff. Yordano Ventura will follow him in Game 2 with Jason Vargas and Jeremy Guthrie likely to follow in the next two contests. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:06 pm
  • Madison Bumgarner takes NLCS MVP honors
    Madison Bumgarner was named the NLCS MVP after holding the Cardinals to three runs over eight frames in Thursday's 6-3 victory.

    Advice: Bumgarner wasn't as sharp as he was in Game 1, as his command was a bit off at times and he served up a couple home runs. However, he still managed to go eight innings and kept his team in the game long enough for the offense to put four runs on the board late. Bumgarner, 25, now boasts a 2.67 ERA across 67 1/3 career postseason innings. The Giants can, and almost surely will, use him on regular rest in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Shields re-signing with Royals 'not hopeful'
    Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that while the Royals will attempt to re-sign impending free agent James Shields, "it is not hopeful."

    Advice: Major league sources told Martino that they're expecting a team like the Red Sox to offer Shields a 4-5 year deal, and he says it's "difficult to imagine the Royals matching such an offer." It's no surprise, as Shields would presumably have to take a discount to stay in Kansas City. CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported earlier this month that Shields should get a deal similar to Anibal Sanchez's five-year, $80 million pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey drives in three, Giants take Game 4
    Buster Posey went 2-for-3 with three RBI as the Giants came back to edge the Cardinals 6-4 in Wednesday's NLCS Game 4.

    Advice: Posey was just 2-for-13 without an RBI in the NLCS coming into the game, but he remedied that with an RBI sacrifice fly in the first inning. He contributed an RBI single in the third inning and added another RBI with a single in the sixth to push the Giants' lead to two. Posey and the Giants hold a 3-1 series lead and are one game away from their third World Series appearance in five years with their ace, Madison Bumgarner, taking the mound Thursday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain wins AL Championship Series MVP
    Lorenzo Cain was named as the American League Championship Series MVP following Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Cain went hitless in three at-bats in the series-winning game, but the outfielder finished 8-for-15 (.533) with an RBI, a stolen base and five runs scored. Cain also played tremendous defense in center field throughout the series. He's hitting .387/.412/.484 in his first MLB postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:24 pm
  • Vargas pitches well, KC completes ALCS sweep
    Jason Vargas limited the Orioles to one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in Game 4 of the ALCS.

    Advice: The Royals could have gone with staff ace James Shields in this one because of Monday's rainout, but they stuck by Vargas and he delivered, yielding just two hits over his five-plus frames. Royals manager Ned Yost wisely went to the bullpen in the top of the sixth inning and the KC relief corps was again dominant, finishing off the ALCS sweep. The Royals are headed to their first World Series in 29 years. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:20 pm
  • Royals down Orioles to take 3-0 ALCS lead
    Jeremy Guthrie lasted just five innings but yielded only one run as the Royals beat the Orioles 2-1 Tuesday to take a 3-0 ALCS lead.

    Advice: Guthrie wasn't particularly sharp, as the Orioles stung a bunch of balls and ran the veteran right-hander's pitch count up to 94 through five frames. He was able to hold them to one run on three hits and two walks, though, and the offense did just enough while the bullpen shut it down. The Royals have won all seven of their games this postseason, including six of them either by one run or when they took the lead in the ninth inning or beyond. They'll turn to Jason Vargas on Wednesday as they look to close things out. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:28 pm
  • Lorenzo Cain stays hot with two more hits
    Lorenzo Cain went 2-for-4 and scored a run in Tuesday's ALCS Game 3 victory over the Orioles.

    Advice: The Royals didn't do a whole lot on offense, putting together just seven singles and one walk, but they were able to scratch out one run on a groundout and another on a sac fly. Cain has been a beast so far in the series, going 8-for-12 at the dish while scoring five runs. Eric Hosmer also had a couple hits for the Royals, while Alex Gordon and Billy Butler tallied the RBIs. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:12 pm
  • Royals sticking with Vargas in Game 4
    Jason Vargas remains the Royals' scheduled starter for Game 4 of the ALCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Royals could have pushed James Shields up to start on regular rest following Monday's rainout, but manager Ned Yost has decided to stick with Vargas. The veteran left-hander allowed just two runs over six strong innings in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Angels. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:17 pm
  • Royals sticking with same lineup for Game 3
    Lorenzo Cain will bat third in Game 3 of the ALCS against the Orioles on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's take two for the clubs, as Monday's scheduled game was rained out. Cain is 6-for-8 with two walks over the first two games of the ALCS and Ned Yost isn't going to mess with what's working. The full lineup: Alcides Escobar SS, Nori Aoki RF, Cain CF, Eric Hosmer 1B, Billy Butler DH, Alex Gordon LF, Salvador Perez C, Omar Infante 2B, Mike Moustakas 3B. Jeremy Guthrie will oppose Wei-Yin Chen. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:49 pm
  • Royals could start Shields in ALCS Game 4
    Royals manager Ned Yost indicated that James Shields could start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Advice: Shields, who gave up four runs over five innings in Game 1, would be going on normal rest. However, Yost could decide to give him an extra day and hold him back until a potential Game 5 on Thursday. Jason Vargas is the alternative to start Game 4. Rotoworld.com

  • Game 3 of O's/Royals ALCS postponed
    Game 3 of the ALCS between the Orioles and Royals has been postponed.

    Advice: It's expected to rain all night in Kansas City, so MLB understandably went ahead and canceled the game rather than wait out the situation. Game 3 will now be played Tuesday at 8:07 p.m. ET. Games 4 and 5 will follow on Wednesday and Thursday, both at 4:07 p.m. ET. Rotoworld.com
