  • Tolleson elects free agency
    Steve Tolleson has elected free agency.

    Advice: Blue Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos accused Tolleson of quitting on the team earlier this year over an injury. Needless to say, he's highly unlikely to return. 58 minutes ago

  • Todd Redmond elects free agency
    Todd Redmond has elected free agency.

    Advice: Redmond was outrighted off the Blue Jays' 40-man roster three times this season. The 30-year-old right-hander spent most of the year in Triple-A and will look for a better opportunity elsewhere. Today, 5:43 am

  • Matt Harvey only goes five but still wins
    Matt Harvey lasted just five innings Monday but was good enough to pick up the victory in the Mets' 13-7 NLDS Game 3 win over the Dodgers.

    Advice: Harvey set the Dodgers down in order in the first inning, but it was a grind for him after that. He gave up four straight singles to start the second to put the Mets in an early 3-0 hole and had to work to strand five runners over the next three frames. He did record seven strikeouts but also allowed seven hits and walked two, needing 97 pitches to complete the five frames. The Mets will attempt to finish off the Dodgers on Tuesday with Steven Matz on the hill. Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Brett Anderson rocked by Mets in Game 3
    Brett Anderson was lit up for six runs over just three innings of work in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Anderson retired the Mets 1-2-3 in the first inning and was then staked to a 3-0 lead in the top of the second. He gave it right up by yielding four runs in the bottom of the second before serving up a two-run shot to Travis d'Arnaud in the third. It was an ugly outing from the left-hander and further enhances the notion that the Dodgers can only really trust two starters. One of those starters, Clayton Kershaw, will get the ball on short rest in Game 4 Tuesday as the Dodgers try to avoid elimination. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Mets blow out Dodgers to take 2-1 NLDS lead
    Yoenis Cespedes went 3-for-5 with a three-run homer in Monday's win over the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS.

    Advice: This one started out in the Dodgers' favor quickly, as they raced to a 3-0 lead after Yasmani Grandal cleared the bases on a two-RBI single plus a throwing error. However, the Mets then scored the next 10 runs as they cruised to a blowout victory. Cespedes' three-run shot in the fourth inning gave the Mets their 10th run and it was a long blast that reached the upper deck at Citi Field. Travis d'Arnaud also homered for the Mets and Curtis Granderson drove in five runs. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Howie Kendrick goes deep in Dodgers' loss
    Howie Kendrick singled and smacked a three-run homer in Monday's loss to the Mets.

    Advice: Kendrick's longball was a stats-padder if there ever was one, as he homered in the ninth inning to cut the Mets' lead to 13-7. It's been a nice series so far for the veteran second baseman, as he has picked up five hits over 13 at-bats while driving in four runs. Adrian Gonzalez also homered for the Dodgers in a losing effort. Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Jake Arrieta not sharp but Cubs still win
    Jake Arrieta wasn't at his best Monday but still picked up a victory, yielding four runs over 5 2/3 frames in an 8-6 win over the Cardinals in Game 3 of the NLDS.

    Advice: Arrieta struck out nine on the day, but his command wasn't what we've become accustomed to during his ridiculous streak. He served up a couple doubles and a home run while walking two and hitting a batter. The Cubs' bullpen picked him up, though, at least until allowing a couple late runs in the ninth. Arrieta is in line to pitch Game 1 of the NLCS should the Cubs finish off the Cards. Yesterday, 7:26 pm
  • Jorge Soler stays hot as Cubs out-slug Cards
    Jorge Soler belted a two-run homer and reached base in all four plate appearances in Monday's NLDS Game 3 victory over the Cardinals.

    Advice: Soler drew a walk in each of his first two plate appearances, singled and scored in the third and then extended the Cubs' lead with a longball in the sixth. After not starting the Wild Card Game or Game 1 of the NLDS, Soler has now reached base in all nine of his plate appearances in the series and has gone deep twice. The Cubs smashed six home runs in the game. Yesterday, 7:07 pm
  • Jason Heyward homers but Cards fall
    Jason Heyward doubled and launched a two-run homer in Monday's loss to the Cubs.

    Advice: Heyward doubled to lead off the second inning and then cut Chicago's lead to one in the sixth with a two-run shot. Surprisingly, offense wasn't in short supply for the Cardinals against Jake Arrieta and the Cubs' bullpen, but they got out-slugged. Stephen Piscotty also went deep for the Redbirds. Yesterday, 7:01 pm
  • David Price pitches in relief in Game 4
    David Price allowed three runs over three relief innings in Monday's win over the Rangers.

    Advice: It was odd to see Price entering the game with Toronto having a 7-1 lead, but manager John Gibbons apparently had already decided Marcus Stroman would be his guy in a potential Game 5. Price struggled against the Rangers again and threw 50 pitches, which means he might not be ready to start Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday, should the Jays make it. Yesterday, 5:06 pm
  • Wade Davis earns two-inning save in Game 4
    Wade Davis nailed down a two-inning save in the Royals' 9-6 ALDS Game 4 win on Monday in Houston.

    Advice: Davis got the call after the Royals took a one-run lead in the top of the eighth and the dominant right-handed reliever went on to retire six of the seven batters he faced. The only hit against him was a ninth-inning single by Carlos Correa, who finished the day 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI. Davis racked up three strikeouts and already has two saves in this postseason. Yesterday, 2:23 pm
  • Eric Hosmer drives in three, KC takes Gm. 4
    Eric Hosmer went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in the Royals' ALDS Game 4 win over the Astros.

    Advice: Hosmer was retired in his first three at-bats of the afternoon, but he hit an RBI single and scored the go-ahead run in the Royals' big five-run eighth inning and then the 25-year-old first baseman cranked a two-run shot for insurance in the top of the ninth. It was a remarkable comeback for the visiting Royals. This best-of-five will be decided on Wednesday in Kansas City. Yesterday, 2:19 pm
  • Clayton Kershaw starting Game 4 on short rest
    Clayton Kershaw will start Game 4 of the NLDS versus the Mets on three days' rest.

    Advice: Most figured it would be Kershaw on short rest if the Dodgers lose Game 3, but manager Don Mattingly isn't waiting to see what happens in that contest. It's not a surprise, as the skipper has routinely pitched the three-time Cy Young winner on three days' rest in the postseason. The Dodgers will go to Zack Greinke in Game 5 (if there is one) and Alex Wood will be available out of the bullpen. Yesterday, 2:12 pm
  • Rollins starting over Seager in NLDS Game 3
    Jimmy Rollins is starting at shortstop and batting second for the Dodgers in Game 3 of the NLDS on Monday.

    Advice: Seager picked up just one hit in eight plate appearances in the first two games and that was apparently enough to convince manager Don Mattingly to give Rollins a shot. The Dodgers also have Enrique Hernandez in center field for the second straight game after Joc Pederson started Game 1. Yesterday, 1:19 pm
  • Matheny: Cardinals' starter for Game 4 is TBD
    Cardinals manager Mike Matheny reiterated Monday that his NLDS Game 4 starter is to be determined.

    Advice: Lance Lynn is currently penciled in, but the Cardinals could turn to John Lackey on short rest if they are facing elimination on Tuesday in Chicago. They'll try to beat 2015 National League Cy Young Award candidate Jake Arrieta on Monday evening at Wrigley Field and then make the decision. Lynn made an appearance in Game 2 on Saturday, but it lasted just one inning and so it acted much like a typical between-starts throwing session. Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Bundy (shoulder) throws another 'pen session
    Dylan Bundy (shoulder) threw another successful bullpen session on Monday.

    Advice: It was a 25-pitch workout and he only threw fastballs, but it represents another step in the right direction for the young starting pitching prospect. He was limited to eight Double-A outings this season due to a calcification in his right shoulder. There's some hope that he could make live appearances toward the end of the Arizona Fall League. Yesterday, 12:20 pm
    60-Day DL
  • Ryan Braun undergoes surgery for ailing back
    Ryan Braun underwent surgery on his back this week.

    Advice: The procedure was called a success. Braun is expected to be cleared for normal workouts in a month, so he should be 100 percent when spring training rolls around in 2016. The 31-year-old outfielder hit .285/.356/.498 with 25 homers, 84 RBI and 24 stolen bases in 140 games this season for Milwaukee. Yesterday, 12:06 pm
  • Jason Hammel to start NLDS Gm. 4 vs. STL
    Jason Hammel will start Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cardinals.

    Advice: Jake Arrieta is facing Michael Wacha in Game 3 on Monday evening at Wrigley Field with the series tied 1-1. St. Louis is expected to start Lance Lynn in Game 4 on Tuesday, though John Lackey could become an option on short rest if the Cardinals are on the brink of elimination. Hammel, 33, had a 3.74 ERA in 31 starts this season for Chicago. Yesterday, 11:19 am
  • Pham starts in CF for Cards in NLDS Game 3
    Tommy Pham is starting in center field in Game 3 of the NLDS Monday evening at Wrigley Field.

    Advice: Randal Grichuk is on the bench in a matchup against 2015 National League Cy Young Award candidate Jake Arrieta. The full lineup for St. Louis: Matt Carpenter 3B, Stephen Piscotty 1B, Matt Holliday LF, Jason Heyward RF, Jhonny Peralta SS, Tommy Pham CF, Yadier Molina C, Kolten Wong 2B, Michael Wacha SP. Yesterday, 11:01 am
  • Carlos Gomez in Astros' lineup for Game 4
    Carlos Gomez (intercostal) is in the Astros' lineup for Game 4 of the ALDS Monday versus the Royals.

    Advice: Gomez made it through Games 2 and 3 without issue and even drove in a run in Sunday's win. He'll start in center field and bat sixth against Royals right-hander Yordano Ventura. The full Game 4 lineup for Houston: Jose Altuve 2B, George Springer RF, Carlos Correa SS, Colby Rasmus LF, Evan Gattis DH, Carlos Gomez CF, Luis Valbuena 3B, Chris Carter 1B, Jason Castro C. Lance McCullers is on the bump. Yesterday, 8:21 am
