  • Morse (oblique) 'doubtful' for WC roster
    Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Michael Morse (oblique) is "doubtful" to be on the club's National League Wild Card roster.

    Advice: There had been a possibility of him being on there as a potential pinch-hitter, but even that is looking unlikely. Morse has been battling a strained left oblique all month and it's looking like he might not be much of a factor this postseason even if the Giants advance.

  • Dustin Ackley to see specialist for ankle
    Dustin Ackley will visit a specialist to have his left ankle examined.

    Advice: Ackley dealt with bone spurs in the ankle down the stretch. Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik doesn't think the outfielder will need surgery, but obviously more will be known after the exam. Ackley finished the season batting .245/.293/.398 with 14 homers and 65 RBI over 143 games.

  • Josh Hamilton says he's ready for the ALDS
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder, chest, rib cage) said Tuesday that he is ready to go for the ALDS.

    Advice: Hamilton has taken batting practice, thrown long toss, and run the bases without issue each of the last two days in Anaheim. He's played in just one game for the Angels since September 4 due to shoulder, chest, and rib cage injuries, but look for him to be in the starting lineup on Thursday.

  • Fuld starting in LF, batting 2nd in WC game
    Sam Fuld will start in left field and bat second in Tuesday's Wild Card game against the Royals.

    Advice: Athletics manager Bob Melvin has clearly prioritized defense in this one, though it's a little odd to see Fuld batting second. Coco Crisp will bat leadoff and play center field and will be followed by Fuld, Josh Donaldson 3B , Brandon Moss DH, Josh Reddick RF, Brett Lowrie SS, Stephen Vogt 1B, Geovany Soto C, and Eric Sogard 2B.

  • Carlos Beltran undergoes right elbow surgery
    Carlos Beltran underwent surgery Tuesday to remove loose pieces and a bone spur from his right elbow.

    Advice: Beltran is six weeks away from hitting and throwing and 12 weeks away from playing in a game, so he should be ready for spring training. The 37-year-old attempted to play through the pain this season, but ended up with a career-low .703 OPS. Now that the issue has been taken care of, he'll make for a solid bounceback candidate in 2015.

  • Hamilton to face live pitching Tuesday
    Josh Hamilton (shoulder, chest, rib cage) is slated to face live pitching Tuesday.

    Advice: Hamilton has been limited to just one game since September 4 due to right shoulder, chest, and rib cage injuries, but he's confident he'll start in left field for Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

  • Gattis could play 140 games between C/LF
    Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez didn't rule out the possibility that Evan Gattis could play 140 games next season between left field and catcher.

    Advice: Christian Bethancourt is considered the catcher of the future for Atlanta, so Gonzalez will have to get creative to find regular playing time for Gattis. While playing left field is an option, he would be a huge liability defensively.
    Today, 11:02 am
  • Rajai Davis (groin) not set for ALDS
    Rajai Davis (groin) is still uncertain for the ALDS against the Orioles.

    Advice: Davis exited Saturday's game with a Grade 1 groin strain. He thinks he'll be ready, but Tigers manager Brad Ausmus still sees any number of scenarios, including him being a full-go, to day-to-day, to left off the roster altogether. We should see more clarity on the situation soon.

    Advice: "It is just a conversation that we will have at the right time," Cherington said.

Cespedes, who will make $10.5 million in 2015 in his final season before free agency, said on Saturday that he's "still not sure if I want to sign an extension or if I want to go to free agency." He batted .269/.296/.423 with five homers and 33 RBI over 51 games for Boston this season and hit .260/.301/.450 with 22 bombs and a career-high 100 RBI overall between the A's and Red Sox.

  • GM says 'no further testing' on Craig's foot
    Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said Monday that "we've done everything we can" for Allen Craig's foot.

    Advice: "No further testing needed," added Cherington. Craig wound up hitting just .128/.234/.191 in 107 plate appearances after the trade that sent he and Joe Kelly to the Red Sox for starter John Lackey. Maybe Craig will be rebound after a full offseason of rest, but this Lisfranc injury dates back to late 2013 and he has been a different player since it happened. Boston owes him $26.5 million in guaranteed money through 2017.

    Advice: Holliday has been battling flu-like symptoms for over a week and was removed from Sunday's starting lineup in Arizona after the Cardinals clinched the National League Central via a Pirates loss.

  • Ichiro Suzuki collects two-run triple
    Ichiro Suzuki had a two-run triple as the Yankees' leadoff hitter against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Suzuki was in the leadoff spot for just the second time all season, making one wonder whether it was just Joe Girardi paying tribute to him or maybe if Ichiro himself made a request prior to what could be his final MLB game. Obviously, Suzuki will be able to find work if he wants it. He came in at .284/.324/.340 in 359 at-bats this year.
    Sunday, 2:29 pm
  • Allen Craig goes 1-for-4 in finale
    Allen Craig went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts on Sunday and would up hitting .128 with one homer and two RBI in 94 at-bats for the Red Sox.

    Advice: Overall, Craig hit .211 with eight homers and 46 RBI in 461 at-bats for the season. He's the first first baseman or corner outfielder since 1943 to end a season with a sub-.200 average, fewer than 10 homers and fewer than 50 RBI in 450 at-bats since Joe Kuhel in 1943. Yes, he really was that bad. The Red Sox owe him $26.5 million through 2017, so they have to hope it was an aberration. He was certainly plenty good up until this year.

  • Michael Morse returns to action on Friday
    Michael Morse returned to action on Friday, going 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts in a loss to the Padres.

    Advice: Morse was not in the starting lineup, appearing as a pinch-hitter for Tim Lincecum in the eighth inning. The good sign, is that he remained in the game to play left field, meaning a return to the lineup should be imminent.

  • Holliday hits 19th homer in win over Reds
    Matt Holliday went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, and a walk against the Reds on Friday.

    Advice: Randal Grichuk and Holliday went back-to-back against David Holmberg in the first inning, which gave John Lackey and the Cardinals' bullpen all the offense they would need. Holliday is now up to 19 home runs on the year, putting him one short of his sixth-straight 20-homer campaign.
