  • Butler has two RBI, Royals prevail in Game 2
    Billy Butler went 2-for-3 with two RBI, driving in the game-winning run as the Royals bested the Giants 7-2 in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

    Advice: Butler delivered two of the game's biggest hits, swatting an RBI single in the first inning to get the Royals on the board and roping a single over Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford in the sixth that gave the Royals a 3-2 lead. They wouldn't look back, putting up four more runs in the inning en route to the five-run win. Once in danger of losing his starting job, Country Breakfast has come up big time and again this postseason. Going to a National League park for three games Butler may have trouble finding at-bats, but he'll likely be the first man off the bench for manager Ned Yost in pinch-hitting spots. Rotoworld.com

  • Morse in lineup as DH for Game 1 of WS

The full lineup: 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.

  • 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

  • Adam LaRoche wants to re-sign with Nationals
    Adam LaRoche said he hopes to re-sign with the Nationals this winter.

    Advice: "If it was up to me, I’m signing a deal with D.C. that puts me there for the rest of my career," he said. LaRoche and the Nationals actually have a mutual $15 million option for 2015, but the Nats will likely decline the option with an eye on moving Ryan Zimmerman to first base next season. LaRoche hit .259/.362/.455 with 26 home runs this season, and he shouldn't have a problem finding another landing spot in free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Ishikawa's walk-off HR sends Giants to WS
    Travis Ishikawa launched a walk-off, three-run homer in the ninth inning Thursday to propel the Giants over the Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Ishikawa had a misplay in left field in the third inning that gave the Cards their first run, but he certainly made up for it in a big way. After Michael Morse tied things up with a pinch-hit homer in the eighth, Ishikawa deposited a Michael Wacha pitch just over the wall in right field to send the Giants to their third World Series in the last five years. They'll face the Royals in Game 1 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis likely to be traded again this winter
    Andy Martino of the New York Daily News reports that the Pirates are likely to trade Ike Davis this offseason.

    Advice: Although the Pirates haven't officially committed to moving Pedro Alvarez to first base next season, the expectation is that a position switch is coming. That, of course, would leave Davis without a position. Davis is arbitration-eligible again this winter after making $3.5 million in 2014, so he could wind up being non-tendered if the Pirates are unable to find a trade partner. Martino says the Marlins like Davis and could have interest. Rotoworld.com

  • Giants make no changes to lineup for Game 5
    Travis Ishikawa is in left field for the Giants in Game 5 of the NLCS Thursday against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Michael Morse will again be in a pinch-hitting role. Here's the full lineup for the Giants, who can advance to the World Series with a victory over the Cardinals and Adam Wainwright: Gregor Blanco CF, Joe Panik 2B, Buster Posey C, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Hunter Pence RF, Brandon Belt 1B, Travis Ishikawa LF, Brandon Crawford SS, Madison Bumgarner SP.

  • 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

  • Vogt undergoes successful right foot surgery
    Stephen Vogt underwent successful foot surgery on Tuesday.

    Advice: Vogt had surgery to repair the plantar plates in his right foot, which he tore around midseason. He also had some scar tissue removed during the procedure. He'll need six-to-eight weeks to recover, which gives him plenty of time to be ready to go by spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • Travis Ishikawa rips bases-clearing double
    Travis Ishikawa delivered a bases-clearing double in the first inning of Tuesday's NLCS Game 3 win over the Cardinals.

    Advice: The Cards intentionally walked Brandon Belt to get to Ishikawa, who made them pay with a long drive off the right-field wall. Ishikawa has four hits in eight at-bats during the NLCS and is hitting a solid .286/.348/.381 overall during the postseason, settling in as the regular left fielder for the Giants. Rotoworld.com

  • No decision yet on ankle surgery for Miggy
    Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that a final decision hasn't yet been made on ankle surgery for Miguel Cabrera.

    Advice: Cabrera was hobbled down the stretch with painful bone spurs in his right ankle and he's still considering his options. The timeline for a final decision isn't clear. Rotoworld.com

  • Napoli to have surgery for sleep disorder
    Mike Napoli will undergo surgery for a sleep disorder.

    Advice: Napoli has been dealing with sleep apnea for his entire career and has tried various methods to treat it, but nothing has worked. The surgery, which is called maxillomandibular advancement, actually moves the upper jaw and the lower jaw forward. Napoli also dealt with injuries to his finger, toe, and back this season, but he will not require surgery for any of them. Rotoworld.com

  • Ishikawa in line for another start in Game 3
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Travis Ishikawa would again start in left field for Tuesday's NLCS Game 3.

    Advice: With Michael Morse active and able to hit it's at least worth a question, but Morse's limitations in the field make it likely he won't see a start in this series. Ishikawa has acquitted himself well through two games thus far, collecting three hits in five at-bats and making a tumbling catch in left in the Giants' Game 1 win. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Adams clobbers go-ahead homer Sunday
    Matt Adams clobbered a go-ahead solo home run in the eighth inning on Sunday to put the Cardinals ahead of the Giants 4-3.

    Advice: Unfortunately, that lead would be short-lived as Trevor Rosenthal surrendered a run in the ninth inning. Adams also drew a walk in the contest, coming around to score on an RBI single by Randall Grichuk in the fourth inning. He’s now hitting .211 (4-for-18) with a pair of homers and five RBI in the postseason. 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
