Player Notes

  • Alvarez goes 4-for-4 as Astros advance to Series
    Yordan Alvarez went 4-for-4 with a triple and two doubles as the Astros topped the Red Sox 5-0 in Friday's Game 6 to advance to the World Series.

    Advice: It was a 2-0 game until Kyle Tucker essentially ended it with a three-run homer in the eighth. The Red Sox could have made it interesting in the sixth, but Kyle Schwarber's shot to left center was a little too far right of the short porch to get out or at least off the wall, and Enrique Hernandez came up a little shy of a homer afterwards, settling for a triple. They again threatened in the seventh, only to be undone by a Travis Shaw strikeout and Alex Verdugo caught stealing. As it was, the Red Sox ended up with just two hits. Alvarez got on a roll in Game 5 and kept it going tonight, leaving him 7-for-9 with five extra-base hits the last two games. Overall, he hit .522 for the ALCS, and he was named MVP of the series afterwards. NBCSportsEDGE.com 54 minutes ago
  • Luis Garcia goes 5 2/3 scoreless for victory
    Luis Garcia pitched 5 2/3 innings of shutout ball Friday to get the win in Game 6 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Garcia, who left his last start with a rather mysterious knee problem, showed up with his best stuff of the season and struck out seven tonight, allowing just one hit and one walk along the way. It was a miraculous performance from someone who seemed to be wearing down after a long season; he had given up 10 runs in 3 2/3 innings during the postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:43 pm
  • Nathan Eovaldi takes loss after allowing one run
    Nathan Eovaldi allowed one run over 4 1/3 innings Friday against the Astros.

    Advice: Eovaldi did his part, with the only run coming because Enrique Hernandez dropped a long fly to center. The highlight was him striking out Kyle Tucker and Chas McCormick after giving up a single and double to start the fourth. He wasn't quite at full strength after pitching in relief in Game 4, leading to the early exit, but he still wrapped up a stellar season in fine fashion. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:41 pm
  • Max Scherzer will not start Game 6 of NLCS vs ATL
    Max Scherzer will not be starting Game 6 of the NLCS against the Braves on Saturday due to arm fatigue. 

    Advice: There are reportedly no structural issues to be concerned about for the veteran right-hander. Scherzer could still be available to start Game 7, if necessary, depending on how he feels tomorrow. The 37-year-old was quoted as saying his "arm was dead" after throwing 79 pitches over 4 1/3 innings in Game 2. It is currently unknown if Walker Buehler will pitch on short rest for the second time this postseason to take Scherzer's spot in the rotation. If not, Los Angeles will likely turn to Tony Gonsolin or David Price in a bullpen game.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:45 pm
  • Chirinos (elbow) will not be ready Opening Day
    Yonny Chirinos will not be ready for Opening Day day after undergoing surgery for a fractured elbow in late September.

    Advice: The 27-year-old was 13-months removed from Tommy John surgery before suffering a fractured elbow while throwing live batting practice in late September. The good news is that his repaired ulnar5 collateral ligament was not damaged. Tampa Bay hopes to have their right-hander back by late April or May if there are no further setbacks.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 2:22 pm
