  • Dee Gordon (hip) a go for Game 1 of NLDS
    Dee Gordon (hip) fully expects to play in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Gordon missed the final game of the regular season with irritation in his right hip, but he went through a full workout on Tuesday afternoon and felt fine. The speedy second baseman batted .289/.326/.378 with 64 stolen bases in 148 games this summer.

    Dee Gordon said Tuesday that his right hip feels fine and that he has been cleared to run.

    Advice: Gordon left Saturday's game with a right hip injury and sat out Sunday, but it's not a major concern. He's expected to be ready to play in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday.

  • Escobar hitting leadoff in Wild Card Game
    Alcides Escobar will bat leadoff in Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Athletics.

    Advice: It's a familiar lineup to what the Royals used to finish out the regular season, with Josh Willingham on the bench: 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. James Shields will start for Kansas City.

  • Baez projected to be Cubs' 2B next season
    Javier Baez is projected to be the Cubs' starting second baseman next season.

    Advice: While Baez slugged nine home runs in 52 games during his first taste of the majors, he hit just .169 with a disturbing 95 strikeouts in 213 at-bats. Still, the Cubs love his long-term potential and believe that he'll be able to make adjustments to find success. While he's penciled in at second base for now, the dynamic could change if the Cubs end up trading Starlin Castro.

  • Holt (concussion) set for exam next week
    Brock Holt (concussion) will see Dr. Michael Collins in Pittsburgh on October 8.

    Advice: Holt missed the final 21 games of the season with a concussion, but it's expected that he'll be cleared during next week's exam. There was some talk about him playing some instructional league games, but he will not be required to play anywhere this winter. Holt should be in the mix for the starting third base job next spring.

  • Adrianza (hamstring) to meet up with Giants
    Ehire Adrianza (hamstring) is expected to meet up with the Giants in Pittsburgh this week.

    Advice: Adrianza has been on the disabled list since late July with a right hamstring injury, but the Giants want to see how he looks and whether he'll be an option for their active roster in Wednesday's National League Wild Card Game against the Pirates. Adrianza can play all around the infield, so he'd be a nice tool to have on the bench.

  • McDonald hits RBI double in loss to Mariners
    John McDonald had an RBI double in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

    Advice: McDonald, who entered the game for Erick Aybar, saved the Angels from being shut out with his run-scoring double in the ninth inning. The 40-year-old batted just .171 and will likely call it a career after the postseason.

  • Kozma doubles, scores lone run vs. D'backs
    Pete Kozma doubled and scored the lone run in the Cardinals' win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

    Advice: The Cardinals managed just three hits on the day they clinched the National League Central, but Kozma's double in the sixth inning preceded a Kolten Wong RBI groundout. The infielder batted .304/.385/.435 in 14 games with the Cardinals this year.

  • Pennington has D'backs' lone two hits Sunday
    Cliff Pennington had the only two hits for the Diamondbacks Sunday, going 2-for-3 in a loss to the Cardinals.

    Advice: Pennington's two singles were all the Diamondbacks could muster against a slew of pitchers near the end of the Cardinals' roster. A left thumb injury cost Pennington two months, and the shortstop finishes the year batting .254 with six stolen bases.

  • Colon drives in two as Royals top White Sox
    Christian Colon went 2-for-2 with a two-run double and a run scored as the Royals bested the White Sox 6-4 Sunday.

    Advice: Colon was brought in as a replacement mid-game, and he came through with a big two-run double in the sixth inning to tie the score. He later scored the game-winning run. The Royals will host the Athletics in the American League Wild Card game Wednesday.

  • Lowrie has two-run single in win over Rangers
    Jed Lowrie had a two-run single in Sunday's season finale against the Rangers.

    Advice: With a two-run lead in a must-win game, Lowrie provided some valuable insurance with his two RBI in the ninth inning. The shortstop took a step backward from his breakout 2013 season, batting .249/.321/.355 with just six homers and 50 RBI this season. The 30-year-old will hit the free agent market this winter.

  • Andrus adds two more hits in season finale
    Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 in Sunday's season finale against the Athletics.

    Advice: Andrus finished the year on a bit of a high note, collecting two of the Rangers' six hits against A's starter Sonny Gray. Andrus had a down year by his standards, in part due to his surroundings on an injury-riddled Rangers club. The 26-year-old finishes hitting .263 with 27 steals and 72 runs scored.

  • Stephen Drew goes 0-for-4 against Boston
    Stephen Drew went 0-for-4 as the Yankees scored nine runs Sunday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Drew didn't make any sort of case for becoming the Yankees' replacement for Derek Jeter next year. He ended up hitting .150 with four homers in 140 at-bats for the Bombers after coming in at .176 with four homers in 131 at-bats for the Red Sox. He'll become a free agent after the World Series. At least he won't have to worry about getting a qualifying offer this time around.

  • Mookie Betts goes 2-for-4, doubles
    Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a steal Sunday against the Yankees.

    Advice: The Red Sox have made it clear in recent days that they see Betts as an outfielder next year, leaving him in a very crowded mix with Yoenis Cespedes, Rusney Castillo, Allen Craig, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Daniel Nava. Betts has spent the last month looking like a legitimate major leaguer, hitting .317 with two homers, seven doubles and 11 walks in 104 at-bats. Still, he's going to be a risky pick in fantasy leagues next spring, given all of Boston's alternatives.

  • Kristopher Negron goes deep for Reds
    Kristopher Negron went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer in Sunday's win over the Pirates.

    Advice: Johnny Cueto's RBI single in the eighth put the Reds on top, and Negron provided a cushion with his two-run blast. The 28-year-old wound up playing regularly for the Reds down the stretch and ended up with a solid .271/.331/.479 batting line. He could have earned a utility job for next season.

  • Desmond hits 24th home run against Marlins
    Ian Desmond hit his 24th home run of the season in Sunday's season finale against the Marlins.

    Advice: Desmond fell a homer shy of his career best mark, but it was still an extremely productive year for the 29-year-old. Desmond batted .255/.313/.430 with 73 runs scored and a career-high 91 RBI. He also had 24 steals, the third straight season Desmond has been a member of the 20/20 club.

  • Derek Jeter singles in 3rd, exits final game
    Derek Jeter exited his final game Sunday in the third inning after delivering an infield single for an RBI in his second at-bat.

    Advice: Jeter hit the ball much harder his first time up, but it was right at shortstop Jemile Weeks for a lineout. The second at-bat was a chopper that bounced high off home plate, making a play impossible for third baseman Garin Cecchini. Manager Joe Girardi signaled and asked Jeter if he wanted to come out, and Jeter replied that he was done. The hit was the 3,465th of his Hall of Fame career. He finishes up sixth on the all-time list.

  • Alexei Ramirez sitting out with bad hamstring
    Alexei Ramirez is not in Sunday's lineup due to a hamstring injury suffered in Saturday's game.

    Sunday, 10:10 am
  • Xander Bogaerts sits with hamstring injury
    Xander Bogaerts is not in Sunday's lineup due to a hamstring injury.

    Advice: Bogaerts tweaked his hamstring on Saturday. The young shortstop's season concludes with a disappointing .240/.297/.362 batting line, though he did slug 12 homers and closed with a .313/.317/.490 line in September.

  • Derek Jeter starting in DH spot in final game
    Derek Jeter is in the designated hitter spot and batting second in his final game Sunday.

    Advice: It's the same position he was in Saturday. Jeter was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning of that game and is likely to also exit Sunday's game early so that he can receive a proper send-off.

    Eduardo Escobar went 4-for-5 with a homer and six RBI in Saturday's 12-3 rout of the Tigers.

    Advice: Escobar grounded out to third in his first at-bat, but he singled twice in the Twins' six-run fifth inning, hit an RBI single in the seventh inning, and then slugged a three-run shot in the eighth inning. Escobar is batting .277/.317/.409 with six home runs and 37 RBI in 132 games this season for Minnesota.

    Dee Gordon left Saturday's game against the Rockies due to irritation in his right hip.

  • Ramon Santiago blasts walk-off grand slam
    Ramon Santiago dealt a huge blow to the Pirates chances of winning the National League Central division crown on Saturday, belting a walk-off grand slam in the 10th inning to give the Reds an improbable 10-6 victory.

    Advice: The Reds loaded the bases with a single and a pair of walks against John Axford in the 10th inning, but he retired Brayan Pena before the stage was set for Santiago's dramatics. He deposited the second pitch he saw deep into the left field seats to deliver the Reds the victory and ensure they don't finish the season with the worst record in their division.

  • Jeter has infield single Saturday vs. Red Sox
    Derek Jeter went 1-for-2 with an infield single Saturday against the Red Sox.

    Advice: Making the start out of the DH spot, Jeter struck out swinging in the first inning before hitting an infield chopper for a single in his second at-bat. With the Red Sox winning in a blowout, the 40-year-old was pulled for a pinch-hitter in the fifth, much to the displeasure of those in attendance at Fenway Park. His 20-year major league career will come to an end on Sunday.

  • Drew drives in two runs in loss
    Stephen Drew drove in two runs with a ground rule double and drew a walk Saturday against the Yankees.

    Advice: Believe it or not, Drew has actually been worse with the Yankees than he was with the Red Sox this season. Even with Saturday's double, he's hitting just .154 (21-for-136) with three home runs and 15 RBI over 45 games with New York. Drew (and his agent Scott Boras) gambled by sitting out until late May before signing, but it didn't pay off.

    Friday, 11:24 pm
  • Dee Gordon doubles twice in Dodgers' win
    Dee Gordon went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two runs scored as the Dodgers beat the Rockies 7-4 on Friday.

    Advice: No steals for Gordon, but two doubles is nice; he entered with just 22 in 604 at-bats this season. He was also in an 0-for-14 slump headed into this one.

  • Baez's three-hit night pushes Cubs past MIL
    Javier Baez went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles, a stolen base, and two runs scored as the Cubs defeated the Brewers on Friday.

    Advice: Baez had been in a slump, notching just one hit in his previous 25 at-bats entering the game. He ended up accounting for four of the Cubs' six runs, proving crucial in their two-run victory. Baez's numbers aren't so great in his first 220 major league plate appearances, as he's batting .172/.232/.333 with nine home runs, 20 RBI, and five stolen bases.

  • Jeter walks off in Yankee Stadium farewell
    Derek Jeter delivered a walk-off single in his final game at Yankee Stadium, helping the Yankees overcome the Orioles on Thursday.

    Advice: It was a big game for Jeter, as he finished 2-for-5 with three RBI. He knocked in the Yanks' first run in the bottom of the first with an RBI single and later scored to tie the game up at 2-2. In the seventh, he put the Yankees ahead, hitting a bases-loaded grounder to J.J. Hardy who then threw the ball into right field, allowing two runs to score. Then, in the ninth, after David Robertson had allowed the Orioles to score three runs to tie the game, Jeter singled to right field in the bottom of the ninth to walk the Yankees off. Quite the storybook ending to his final game at Yankee Stadium. The Captain has had a down year at the plate, but has come on strong as of late, batting .342 (13-for-38) in his last nine games. Overall, he's hitting .255/.302/.312 with four home runs, 49 RBI, and 10 stolen bases.

    Eduardo Escobar (shoulder) came off the bench to hit a single Monday against the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: Escobar hadn't played since last Tuesday due to a jammed right shoulder, but he entered the game as a pinch-runner in the seventh and stuck around to hit a single in the ninth. He should be back in the lineup soon.

  • Derek Jeter knocks in three
    Derek Jeter had his first three-RBI game of the season Monday in the win over the Orioles.

    Advice: Jeter plated a run with a groundout in the third and then doubled in two in the fifth. With 10 hits in his last six games, he's going out on a higher note than it seemed he would a couple of weeks ago.

  • Lowrie (foot) in Monday's lineup vs. Angels
    Jed Lowrie (foot) is in Monday's lineup against the Angels.

    Advice: Lowrie was hit in the foot by a pitch on Sunday and eventually left the game, but he's going to try to give it a go Monday. He'll bat sixth against C.J. Wilson.

  • Escobar (shoulder) available off bench Monday
    Eduardo Escobar (shoulder) is available off the bench Monday.

    Advice: Escobar hasn't played since jamming his right shoulder last Tuesday night, but he felt fine after taking some extra swings during early batting practice on Monday. It sounds like he's not far off from a return.

  • Jed Lowrie (foot) considered day-to-day
    Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Sunday that Jed Lowrie (foot) was removed from their game against the Phillies because he didn't have his necessary range after being hit by a pitch.

    Advice: It sounds as though the injury isn't believed to be serious, so Lowrie should be considered day-to-day. Nick Punto would continue to fill-in should he be forced to miss a game or two.

  • Bogaerts (neck) expects to return on Tuesday
    Xander Bogaerts (neck) expects to return to the Red Sox lineup on Tuesday.

    Advice: The young shortstop was removed from Sunday's contest against the Orioles due to stiffness in his neck. Jemile Weeks replaced him on Sunday and could get the call on Tuesday if Bogaerts has any sort of setback.

  • Jed Lowrie removed from Sunday's game
    Jed Lowrie was removed from Sunday's game against the Phillies in the fifth inning with an apparent injury.

    Advice: Lowrie was hit in the foot by a pitch in his first at-bat, but it's unclear if that is the reason for his early departure. He was replaced defensively by Nick Punto to begin the fifth inning. The A's should have an updated on his status shortly.

  • Betts' leadoff homer leads BoSox past Orioles
    Mookie Betts hit a leadoff home run, finishing 2-for-5 as the Red Sox sneaked past the Orioles 3-2 on Sunday.

    Advice: Leading off the game, Betts homered to left on the fourth pitch he saw. The homer was his fifth of the year, giving him 14 RBI. Betts is really showing something after his early struggles, as his line sits at .285/.362/.436 after Sunday's performance. It should be fun to watch what the 21-year-old will do in his sophomore campaign.

    Xander Bogaerts left Sunday's game against the Orioles with neck stiffness.

    Advice: He can probably safely be considered day-to-day. Bogaerts was replaced at shortstop by Jemile Weeks.
