  • Taijuan Walker returns home from Fall League
    Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik confirmed Sunday that Taijuan Walker has left Surprise in the Arizona Fall League to return to his home in California.

    Advice: The M's noted that he is fully healthy, and that it was a personal decision for Walker to return home. The prized right-hander was scheduled to throw 30 innings in the Fall showcase after missing time during the regular season due to a shoulder injury. He threw just nine innings, allowing a pair of runs on seven hits while posting an 11/2 K/BB ratio. He will continue his regular offseason training program and is expected to be fully ready for spring training. Rotoworld.com

  • Archie Bradley knocked around in AFL start
    Diamondbacks top pitching prospect Archie Bradley was knocked around in his latest Arizona Fall League start on Saturday against Mesa, surrendering seven runs (four earned) on three hits in his two-plus innings of work.

    Advice: The biggest culprit for his demise in this one was a lack of command, evidenced by four free passes in his two-plus innings. He did manage to record a pair of strikeouts before departing. The 22-year-old had difficulty after a mid-season promotion to Double-A Mobile where he registered a 4.12 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 46/36 K/BB ratio over 54 2/3 innings. Until he can deliver the ball over the plate consistently, he won't be a legitimate option to join the Diamondbacks rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Pedro Hernandez elects free agency
    Pedro Hernandez has elected free agency.

    Advice: Hernandez had been removed from the Rockies' 40-man roster back in August. The left-hander held an ugly 6.42 ERA at Triple-A this season and will seek out another minor league pact. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Lincecum dealing with sore neck
    Tim Lincecum was unable to throw a scheduled bullpen session on Saturday due to a sore neck.

    Advice: It's not clear how long the neck has been bothering Lincecum, but it could partly explain why he's yet to pitch this postseason. However, the right-hander will be on the World Series roster as one of two long relievers in San Francisco's bullpen. Rotoworld.com

  • John Lackey reiterates plans to play in 2015
    John Lackey on Friday reiterated his plans to play next season.

    Advice: Some have speculated that Lackey could retire rather than play under the Cardinals' $500,000 option for next season (which kicked in after he missed the 2012 campaign following Tommy John surgery). However, Lackey, who will turn 36 later this week, fully intends to honor the final year of his contract. "Great experience here," Lackey said. "Obviously it didn’t end the way we’d like it to. No complaints at all. A lot of young guys that will be back, and they’re big contributors. Definitely don’t see why not. The reason I came here was I had every intention of playing next year."
