  • Reyes opts for free agency
    Jo-Jo Reyes has opted for free agency.

    Advice: Reyes cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend, but he had the option of testing free agency. The 30-year-old threw just one pitch in the majors this season and was credited with a win in the process. He posted a 4.76 ERA and 45/23 K/BB ratio over 68 innings in Triple-A this year.

  • Cabral elects free agency
    Cesar Cabral has elected free agency.

    Advice: Cabral made two appearances with the Orioles this season and posted a 4.50 ERA and 48/21 K/BB ratio over 44 innings between Double- and Triple-A. The 26-year-old should find a spring training invite somewhere. Today, 7:51 am

  • Todd Redmond elects free agency
    Todd Redmond has elected free agency.

    Advice: Redmond was outrighted off the Blue Jays' 40-man roster three times this season. The 30-year-old right-hander spent most of the year in Triple-A and will look for a better opportunity elsewhere. Today, 5:43 am

  • Brett Anderson rocked by Mets in Game 3
    Brett Anderson was lit up for six runs over just three innings of work in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Anderson retired the Mets 1-2-3 in the first inning and was then staked to a 3-0 lead in the top of the second. He gave it right up by yielding four runs in the bottom of the second before serving up a two-run shot to Travis d'Arnaud in the third. It was an ugly outing from the left-hander and further enhances the notion that the Dodgers can only really trust two starters. One of those starters, Clayton Kershaw, will get the ball on short rest in Game 4 Tuesday as the Dodgers try to avoid elimination. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Chris Narveson outrighted to Triple-A
    Marlins sent LHP Chris Narveson outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. Narveson held a 4.45 ERA across 30 1/3 frames for the Marlins this season. Yesterday, 5:14 pm

  • Erik Cordier outrighted to Triple-A
    Marlins sent RHP Erik Cordier outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: The moves clears a spot on the Marlins' 40-man roster. Cordier held a 5.84 ERA over eight relief appearances with the big club this season. Yesterday, 5:11 pm

  • Preston Claiborne outrighted off 40-man
    Marlins sent RHP Preston Claiborne outright to Triple-A New Orleans.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. Claiborne missed all of the 2015 season with a shoulder injury. Yesterday, 5:10 pm

  • Bundy (shoulder) throws another 'pen session
    Dylan Bundy (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: It was a 25-pitch workout and he only threw fastballs, but it represents another step in the right direction for the young starting pitching prospect. He was limited to eight Double-A outings this season due to a calcification in his right shoulder. There's some hope that he could make live appearances toward the end of the Arizona Fall League. Yesterday, 12:20 pm

  • Jason Hammel to start NLDS Gm. 4 vs. STL
    Jason Hammel will start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Jake Arrieta is facing Michael Wacha in Game 3 on Monday evening at Wrigley Field with the series tied 1-1. St. Louis is expected to start Lance Lynn in Game 4 on Tuesday, though John Lackey could become an option on short rest if the Cardinals are on the brink of elimination. Hammel, 33, had a 3.74 ERA in 31 starts this season for Chicago. Yesterday, 11:19 am
  • Mets DFA right-hander Tim Stauffer
    Mets designated RHP Tim Stauffer for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears a 40-man roster spot for middle infielder Matt Reynolds, who has taken over for Ruben Tejada (leg) with the NLDS heading back to New York City. Stauffer was going to be a free agent this winter anyway. He posted a 6.97 ERA in 20 2/3 innings of relief this season between the Twins and Mets. Yesterday, 10:56 am

  • Marcus Stroman could be available on Sunday
    Blue Jays manager John Gibbons left open the possibility that Marcus Stroman could be used out of the bullpen for Sunday's must-win Game 3 of the ALDS.

    Advice: It's all hands on deck for the Blue Jays who are facing elimination. David Price is expected to be available out of the bullpen as well. Stroman held off on throwing his regular side session on Sunday in case he is needed for a couple of hitters. Sunday, 2:21 pm
  • Collins confirms Steven Matz starts Game 4
    Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Sunday that Steven Matz (back) will start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Matz missed his final start of the regular season due to spasms in his upper back, but made it through a simulated game this week without any issues and it will be all systems go for a crucial Game 4. Collins also confirmed that Jacob deGrom will work in Game 5 if necessary. Sunday, 1:22 pm
    W, 1-0 vs Was
  • Jason Motte (shoulder) throws sim game
    Jason Motte (shoulder) threw a simulated game at Wrigley Field on Sunday.

    Advice: Motte has been on the shelf since late August with a strained right shoulder but could be added to the NLCS roster if the Cubs advance. He posted a 3.91 ERA and 34/11 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 relief innings during the regular season. Sunday, 9:37 am
    15-Day DL

  • Ernesto Frieri elects free agency
    Ernesto Frieri has elected free agency.

    Advice: Things have unraveled the last two seasons for Frieri, as he holds a 6.37 ERA over 70 appearances in the majors and has spent significant time in the minors. The former closer will undoubtedly have to settle for a minor league deal over the offseason. Sunday, 7:27 am

  • Tanner Scheppers' finger still sore
    Tanner Scheppers tried to play catch Saturday but still felt soreness in his right index finger.

    Advice: Scheppers suffered a cut on the finger during the celebration after the Rangers clinched the American League West. The reliever is not on the team's ALDS roster and it doesn't sound like he'll be an option to be added anytime soon. Sunday, 6:40 am
    W, 9-2 vs LAA
  • Angels designate Jo-Jo Reyes for assignment
    Angels designated LHP Jo-Jo Reyes for assignment.

    Advice: He was waived to make room on the 40-man roster for Todd Cunningham. The 30-year-old appeared in just one game for the Angels this season, working a scoreless 1/3 of an inning. He spent most of the season pitching at Triple-A Salt Lake where he registered a 4.76 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 45/23 K/BB ratio over 68 innings of work. Friday, 5:10 pm

  • Stroman recovers from early struggles
    Marcus Stroman rebounded from a slow start to yield four runs – three earned – across seven frames in Friday’s loss to the Rangers.

    Advice: Stroman’s defense didn’t help him as he was tagged for three runs in the first two innings, but he then cruised through the next five frames. Manager John Gibbons probably should have pulled him after the seventh, but he let Stroman start the eighth and he gave up a leadoff single to Delino DeShields and was then pulled. Texas then tied things up off of Toronto’s bullpen. Stroman could potentially start Game 5 if the Rangers go with David Price on short rest in Game 4, but that shouldn’t be on their minds at this point down 2-0. Friday, 2:51 pm
  • Steven Matz (back) officially on NLDS roster
    Steven Matz (back) has officially made the Mets' NLDS roster.

    Advice: And he's in line to start a potential Game 4 in New York after throwing 80 pitches in a simulated game on Thursday with no issues. Matz missed his final outing of the regular season due to some spasms in his upper back, but he appears to be all systems go now. Friday, 11:07 am
    W, 1-0 vs Was
  • Hammel possibility to start Game 4 of NLDS
    Jason Hammel could start Game 4 of the NLDS depending on the circumstance.

    Advice: Jon Lester will start Game 1 against the Cardinals, Kyle Hendricks Game 2 and Jake Arrieta Game 3. Hammel's currently pitching in the bullpen, but depending on his usage over the first three games, he's a possibility to start Game 4 assuming neither team works the three-game sweep. Thursday, 2:05 pm
  • Matz (back) throws 80-pitch simulated game
    Steven Matz (back) threw 80 pitches in a simulated game on Thursday morning in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

    Advice: "I felt really good," Matz told reporters. "I took two weeks off, so I was a little rusty the first couple innings, but I feel really good, really strong. My arm feels great, back feels great. I'm ready to go." Matz was limited down the stretch by an upper back injury, but the 24-year-old left-hander is in line to start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers. Thursday, 9:29 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. Thursday, 8:42 am
    60-Day DL
    W, 9-4 vs NYY
  • 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. Wednesday, 10:21 am
    W, 9-2 vs LAA
  • Motte (shoulder) could be available
    Jason Motte (shoulder) has joined the Cubs in Pittsburgh and could be available later in the postseason should the club advance.

    Advice: Motte has been sidelined since late August with a strained right shoulder and isn't on the Wild Card Game roster. Given how much time he's missed, he's probably a long shot to be added to the roster even if the Cubs have a lengthy playoff run. Tuesday, 5:59 pm
    15-Day DL
    W, 3-1 @Mil
  • Marcus Stroman to start Game 2 of ALDS
    Marcus Stroman will start Game 2 of the ALDS against the Rangers.

    Advice: Stroman broke the news himself on Twitter. It's not surprising given how well he pitched down the stretch, posting a 1.67 ERA and 0.96 WHIP across four starts. The accomplishment is quite impressive given that Stroman had been ruled out for the season when he tore his ACL in spring training. David Price is getting the ball in Game 1 and Stroman will be followed by Marco Estrada in Game 3 and R.A. Dickey in Game 4, if there is one. Tuesday, 1:07 pm
  • Steven Matz (back) throws bullpen session
    Steven Matz (back) threw a bullpen session Tuesday at Citi Field.

    Advice: Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen indicated that everything went well. Matz, who has been dealing with spasms in his upper back, is now slated to throw around 90 pitches in an instructional league game on Thursday. The hope is that he'll be ready to pitch Game 4 of the NLDS against the Dodgers next Tuesday. Tuesday, 9:53 am
    W, 1-0 vs Was
  • Steven Matz (back) to throw off mound Tues.
    Steven Matz (back) will throw a bullpen session Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll then throw 90-100 pitches in an instructional league game Thursday if he's feeling up to it. The Mets plan on starting Matz in Game 4 of the NLDS if his stiff back will allow it. Oct 4, 9:18 am
    W, 1-0 vs Was
  • Matz receives injection to relax back muscles
    Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that Steven Matz received an injection in his back on Friday to relax his muscles.

    Advice: Matz was expected to pitch at some point on Saturday or Sunday, though the stiffness in his back has caused him to be scratched twice already this week. Collins hopes that he can get up to 90-100 pitches by Wednesday in the instructional league in order to be ready for his next start. He's expected to function as the Mets' fourth starter in the postseason as long as he's healthy. Oct 3, 7:52 am
