  • 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. Nix was claimed off waivers from the Pirates in late August and appeared in seven games for the Royals down the stretch. This is the Royals' only roster change for the World Series against the Giants.

  • Pedro Ciriaco catches on with Braves
    Braves signed INF Pedro Ciriaco to a minor league contract.

    Advice: Ciriaco had been removed from the Royals' 40-man roster. The 29-year-old infielder will presumably receive an invitation to spring training and compete for a utility job.

  • Phillies outright Andres Blanco to Triple-A
    Phillies sent INF Andres Blanco outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    Advice: It's nothing more than a procedural move to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Phillies. The 30-year-old infielder appeared in 25 games with the Phillies in 2014, slashing .277/.306/.447 with a homer and three RBI in 47 at-bats.

  • Dombrowski: Iglesias (shins) will be 'fine'
    Tigers general manager Dave Dombrowski said earlier this week that he's been told by doctors that Jose Iglesias (shins) will be "fine" for spring training.

    Advice: "The doctors tell me he'll be fine," Dombrowski said. "He's going to be ready for spring training, he's going to be ready to go, and he's over all of his (injuries)." Iglesias, of course, missed all of the 2014 season due to stress fractures in both shins, but he's been ramping up his baseball activity of late without experiencing any issues. Dombrowski stopped short of officially naming Iglesias the team's shortstop for next season since he wants to see him in game action first, but he said he'd be "surprised" if the slick fielder isn't at the position on Opening Day.

  • Flaherty hits solo home run in loss to Royals
    Ryan Flaherty hit a solo home run, the only run the Orioles could muster on the afternoon, in Wednesday's ALCS Game 4 loss to the Royals.

    Advice: Flaherty's home run off Royals starter Jason Vargas in the third inning cut the Royals' lead to 2-1, but it was as close as the Orioles would come. Surprisingly, Flaherty finished the series as one of the Orioles' most productive hitters, batting .333 (4-for-12) with a home run and three RBI.

  • 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.

  • Carpenter goes deep as Cardinals top Giants
    Matt Carpenter blasted his fourth home run of the postseason as the Cardinals topped the Giants in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday.

    Advice: Carpenter’s solo blast off Jake Peavy got the Cardinals on the board in the third inning. After hitting just eight long balls in a league-leading 709 plate appearances during the regular season, the 28-year-old has put on an impressive power display with four homers in just 28 postseason at-bats. It was his lone hit in four at-bats on the evening.

  • 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.

  • Danny Worth elects to become free agent
    Danny Worth has elected free agency.

    Advice: The 29-year-old infielder is widely respected for his glove work, but is a career .230/.293/.295 hitter in 261 at-bats at the big league level. He'll look for an opportunity to compete for a utility role elsewhere.

  • Sandoval reaches four times in Game 1 victory
    Pablo Sandoval reached base four times Saturday, going 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in a win over the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Sandoval led off the top of the second inning with a double off Adam Wainwright, coming around to score what ended up being the game-winning run later in the inning. He added two more singles and a walk in his next four plate appearances. Sandoval seems to thrive under the bright lights of postseason baseball, and this series could be another opportunity for him to shine in advance of free agency this winter.

  • Carpenter leads off for Cards in NLCS Game 1
    Matt Carpenter is leading off for the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLCS on Saturday.

    Advice: Carpenter led the Cards to their NLDS victory, and he'll try to do the same while manning third base against the Giants. After Carpenter, the lineup goes: Randal Grichuk RF, Matt Holliday LF, Jhonny Peralta SS, Matt Adams 1B, Yadier Molina C, Jon Jay CF, Kolten Wong 2B, Adam Wainwright SP.

  • White Sox could look to deal a second baseman
    According to Doug Padilla of ESPN Chicago, the White Sox are set to allow Marcus Semien, Micah Johnson and Carlos Sanchez to compete for the team's starting second base job in 2015.

    Advice: With extraordinary depth at the position, Padilla speculates that the organization could look to deal one of the trio in order to upgrade the team elsewhere. Semien has the most big league experience of the three, but hit just .234/.300/.372 with six homers and 28 RBI in 64 games at the big league level. Fantasy owners will be hoping that Johnson winds up with the gig, as his game-changing speed could be incredibly valuable.

  • Ian Stewart refuses his outright assignment
    Ian Stewart has elected free agency.

    Advice: The veteran slugger refused his outright assignment to Triple-A Salt Lake and will instead search for a new opportunity elsewhere. In 24 games with the Angels in 2014, the 29-year-old hit just .176/.222/.382 with a pair of homers and seven RBI while posting a horrifying 31/3 K/BB ratio in his 68 at-bats.

  • Moustakas goes deep as Royals top O’s
    Mike Moustakas clobbered a two-run home run off Brian Matusz in the 10th inning on Friday, helping to lead the Royals to an impressive victory over the Orioles in the first game of the ALCS.

    Advice: It was his lone hit in five at-bats on the night, but proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Moustakas has found his power stroke in October, smashing three long balls and driving home four runs in 19 postseason at-bats. The 26-year-old is arbitration eligible this winter, and a strong showing in the playoffs could help to earn him a nice raise over the $549,000 he took home in 2014.

  • Ryan Flaherty plates two runs in Game 1 loss
    Ryan Flaherty went 3-for-5 and drove home a pair of runs as the Orioles dropped Game 1 of the ALCS to the Royals in extra innings on Friday.

    Advice: Flaherty delivered one of the biggest hits of the night for the Orioles, plating two runs with a two-out double in the fifth inning to pull the O's to within a run at 5-4. With the three-hit attack, he's now hitting .357 (5-for-14) with three RBI in the postseason.
