  • Orioles decline Nick Hundley's option
    Orioles declined C Nick Hundley's $5 million option for 2015.

    Advice: With Matt Wieters coming back and Caleb Joseph around as a cheaper backup, the O's don't need Hundley. The veteran backstop will likely have to settle for a backup job this winter. Rotoworld.com

  • Marlins to exercise option on C Jeff Mathis
    According to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro, the Marlins will exercise their $1.5 million option on Jeff Mathis.

    Advice: Mathis is one of the worst hitters in baseball -- his combined slash line over the past two seasons is .189/.256/.280 -- but the Marlins love his defense and will keep him around for another year as the backup to starting catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey’s World Series struggles continue
    Buster Posey’s World Series struggles continued in Tuesday’s Game 6, as he went 0-for-3 before being pulled late in the blowout loss.

    Advice: His second at-bat was a killer, as Yordano Ventura had walked three straight to load the bases, giving the Giants an opening to get back into the game. But Posey bailed him out, swinging at the first pitch and grounding weakly to shortstop. It’s probably a safe bet that Posey is wearing down after a long year, as he’s batting just .190 since the beginning of the NLCS and doesn’t have an extra-base hit the entire postseason.

  • Tony Sanchez won't play winter ball
    Tony Sanchez is no longer slated to play winter ball.

    Advice: No word on why the Pirates changed their plans. Sanchez batted .267/.300/.360 with two home runs and 13 RBI over 80 plate appearances with the big club this season and could take on a bigger role in 2015 if Russell Martin signs elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey singles, walks twice in Game 5 victory
    Buster Posey had an RBI single and two walks in five plate appearances as the Giants cruised to an 11-4 win against the Royals in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday.

    Advice: The World Series is evened up at 2-2, so the two clubs will play Game 5 in San Francisco before heading back to Kansas City for Game 6 and potentially Game 7. Posey walked and scored the Giants' first run in the first inning, then reduced the Giants' deficit to 4-2 at the time with an RBI single in the third inning. Posey was intentionally walked in the sixth, then scored the first of three runs in the frame. Posey is batting only .188 (3-for-16) in the World Series and hasn't had an extra-base hit since doubling against the Padres on September 25. The Giants need him to get going if they want to have an easier time fending off the Royals. Rotoworld.com

  • Perez logs 3 hits but Royals fall in Game 4
    Salvador Perez singled three times in four at-bats, but the Royals dropped Game 4 of the World Series to the Giants on Saturday.

    Advice: Perez knocked in the Royals' fourth run of the third inning with a single to center field. It seemed like a big hit at the time, but the Royals wound up losing by seven runs. Perez is now batting .357 (5-for-14) with four RBI in the World Series. If he is able to keep it up, his production towards the bottom of the lineup could be crucial. Rotoworld.com

  • Posey plates one as Giants drop Game 3
    Buster Posey went 0-for-4 with an RBI as the Giants dropped Game 3 of the World Series to the Royals in San Francisco on Friday.

    Advice: Posey came to the plate in a huge situation in the sixth inning, with the potential tying runs in scoring position and just one out. While Posey was able to deliver an RBI with a ground out that pulled the Giants to within a run at 3-2, their scoring threat fizzled. The All-Star backstop is now hitting .268/.311/.268 with no homers and six RBI in the postseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Perez comes through with two-run double in G2
    Salvador Perez came up with a big two-run double in the Royals' win in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

    Advice: Perez was just 5-for-39 in his first postseason before coming up with two runners on in the sixth inning. He changed that by smashing a Hunter Strickland pitch to the left-center gap, scoring both runs and winding up at second base. Perez later scored on an Omar Infante home run. The big hit came a day after Perez took Madison Bumgarner out for the Royals' only run in the Game 1 loss. If Perez gets going at the plate, it could mean good things for the Royals going forward.

  • 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

  • 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.
