  • Cardinals decline Kolten Wong's $12.5M option
    Cardinals declined 2B Kolten Wong's $12.5 million option for 2021.

    Advice: Wong regressed at the plate in 2020 after a strong showing in 2019, although he remains one of the better defensive second basemen in baseball. The Cards had been discussing an extension with Wong that would lower his AAV but keep him around longer. Obviously, the two sides weren't able to reach an agreement, but president of baseball operations John Mozeliak said Wednesday that both sides have "agreed to keep the door open" on a return. If Wong doesn't return, St. Louis figures to turn to Tommy Edman at second base. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:33 pm

  • Jose Peraza elects free agency
    Jose Peraza has elected free agency.

    Advice: The Red Sox removed Peraza from their 40-man roster and he's decided to test out the market rather than accept an outright assignment. He might have to settle for a minor league contract after he hit just .225/.275/.342 this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:41 pm

  • Nats decline mutual option on Howie Kendrick
    Nationals declined INF Howie Kendrick's $6.5 million mutual option for 2021.

    Advice: Kendrick will get a $2.25 million buyout and may head into retirement at age 37. He was brilliant for Washington in 2019 before slashing just .275/.320/.385 with two home runs over 100 plate appearances in 2020. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:46 am

  • Mariners decline $14M option on Strange-Gordon
    Mariners declined INF/OF Dee Strange-Gordon's $14 million club option for 2021.

    Advice: The writing has been on the wall for a while that this move would be coming. Strange-Gordon struggled to a .200/.268/.213 batting line with zero home runs, zero triples, one double, and three stolen bases in 33 games (82 plate appearances) this past season with Seattle. It figures to be tough sledding for most one-dimensional free agents this winter, though Strange-Gordon's raw speed should net him at least a couple of offers. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:20 am
     
  • Mariners to decline '21 option on Strange-Gordon
    According to Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times, the Mariners will decline Dee Strange-Gordon's $14 million club option for 2021.

    Advice: He'll get a $1 million buyout and hit the free agent market. It's an easy call for Seattle after Strange-Gordon battled a quad issue in 2020 and slashed just .200/.268/.213 with one extra-base hit (a double) in 33 games. The 32-year-old infielder-outfielder attempted five stolen bases and was caught twice. He turns 33 next April. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:45 pm
     
  • Mets claim INF/OF Robel Garcia off waivers
    Mets claimed INF/OF Robel Garcia off waivers from the Reds.

    Advice: Garcia was claimed off waivers from the Cubs back in July, though he didn't end up appearing in a game with the club. The 27-year-old broke out between Double- and Triple-A in 2019, batting 284/.369/.586 with 27 homers over 98 games. Garcia never really hit for much power prior to that and his production largely failed to translate during his first stint in the majors last year, but he has experience at multiple infield spots and even played some left field in 2019. He could be a utility player option for New York.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:55 am

  • Muncy clobbers solo homer in Dodgers' win in Gm 5
    Max Muncy went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk in a win over the Rays on Sunday in Game 5 of the World Series. 

    Advice: With the Dodgers leading 3-2, Muncy added some insurance with an absolute moonshot off of Tyler Glasnow in the fifth that extended that lead to 4-2. He also had a single that would have been a double if it wasn't hit so hard -- and if Muncy weren't a well below-average runner -- and drew a walk. The 30-year-old has been outstanding in these five games with a .389/.522/.611 slash, and he might be the favorite for World Series MVP if the Dodgers can win one more game.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:38 pm

  • Orioles bringing back Wilkerson on minors deal
    Roch Kubatko of MASN reports that the Orioles have re-signed Stevie Wilkerson to a minor league contract.

    Advice: The contract includes an invitation to spring training. Wilkerson was released in September not long after it was revealed that the infielder/outfielder was going to miss the rest of the season with a fractured left ring finger. The switch-hitter has a career OPS of .714 with 22 homers and 42 steals in 424 games. He'll battle for a backup job with Baltimore in the Grapefruit League this spring.   Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:02 pm

  • Enrique Hernandez in Dodgers lineup for Game 4
    Enrique Hernandez is starting at second base and batting ninth for the Dodgers in Game 4 of the World Series against the Rays on Saturday.

    Advice: As is often the case against left-handers, Hernandez finds his way into the Dodgers lineup with Ryan Yarbrough toeing the slab for the Rays on Saturday. It's the same lineup that the Dodgers rolled in their loss to Blake Snell in Game 2, with the only exception that Hernandez and Chris Taylor have been flipped in the lineup. Here's the full order for the Dodgers on Saturday: Mookie Betts RF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Max Muncy 1B, Will Smith C, Cody Bellinger DH, AJ Pollock CF, Chris Taylor LF, Hernandez 2B.  Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:54 pm

  • Mike Brosseau batting third for Rays in Game 4
    Mike Brosseau is drawing a start at third base and batting third for the Rays against left-hander Julio Urias and the Dodgers in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night.

    Advice: Unsurprisingly, the Rays have all of their traditional lefty-mashers in the lineup on Saturday. Brosseau in place of Joey Wendle is the only material change to the lineup that the Rays used against Clayton Kershaw in Game 1, though the order has been completely scrambled. Here's how they'll line up as they attempt to even the series at two games apiece: Yandy Diaz 1B, Randy Arozarena DH, Brosseau 3B, Manuel Margot LF, Brandon Lowe 2B, Willy Adames SS, Hunter Renfroe RF, Mike Zunino C, Kevin Kiermaier CF.

  • Max Muncy drives in two runs as Dodgers win Game 3
    Max Muncy went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Friday, helping to propel the Dodgers to victory over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series.

    Advice: Muncy broke the game open with a two-out, two-run single off of Charlie Morton in the third inning that increased their advantage to 3-0. They would never trail in the ballgame. With his two-hit night, the 30-year-old slugger is hitting .245 (12-for-49) with two homers and 12 RBI through 15 games this postseason. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:21 pm

  • Nationals re-sign Josh Harrison to one-year deal
    Nationals re-signed INF/OF Josh Harrison to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post hears that it carries a $1 million base salary and up to $250,000 in incentives based on total plate appearances. Harrison joined the Nationals this past July 27, a week after getting released by the Phillies, and went on to post a .278/.352/.418 batting line with three home runs in 33 games while appearing defensively at second base, third base, first base, left field, and right field. The 33-year-old former All-Star figures to reprise his role as a super-utilityman for Washington in 2021. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:04 am

  • Brandon Lowe homers twice as Rays even up series
    Brandon Lowe broke out of his slump with a pair of home runs as the Rays downed the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lowe entered this one hitting just .107 (6-for-56) so far this postseason, but he ripped a long opposite-field blast off of Tony Gonsolin as the second batter of the game to open the scoring. He wasn't done there, belting another one to left off of Dustin May in the fifth inning which hit off the top of the wall and went into the seats for a two-run shot. The Rays' offense as a whole has been struggling, so getting Lowe going would obviously be huge for their chances this series. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:59 pm

  • Chris Taylor smacks two-run homer
    Chris Taylor hit a two-run homer in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday.

    Advice: Blake Snell had not allowed a hit yet before Taylor took him deep with two out in the bottom of the fifth inning with an opposite-field shot. It's Taylor's first dinger of this postseason. He struck out in all three of his other plate appearances, including on a check-swing to end the game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:55 pm

  • Enrique Hernandez at 2B in World Series Game 2
    Enrique Hernandez is starting at second base and batting eighth for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night against the Rays.

    Advice: Hernandez has primarily functioned as an off-the-bench player for Los Angeles during this 2020 postseason run, and he's been brilliant in that role. Now he'll get a chance to start in Game 2 with the Rays throwing left-hander Blake Snell. The full lineup for the Dodgers, who are currently up 1-0 in the best-of-seven Fall Classic: Mookie Betts RF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Max Muncy 1B, Will Smith C, Cody Bellinger CF, A.J. Pollock DH, Enrique Hernandez 2B, Chris Taylor LF. Tony Gonsolin will be the starting pitcher. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:31 pm

  • Muncy drives in two, scores two in WS Gm 1 win
    Max Muncy finished 2-for-4 with a walk, two RBI, and two runs scored in the Dodgers' World Series Game 1 defeat of the Rays on Tuesday.

    Advice: Muncy took a grounder to the face during pregame warmups, but he brushed it off and drew his 16th walk of the 2020 postseason in the bottom of the fourth inning just before teammate Cody Bellinger yanked a two-run homer to open the night's scoring. Muncy then tallied an RBI on a fielder's choice in the bottom of the fifth inning and drove a run-scoring double to the fence in right-center field in the bottom of the sixth.

  • Muncy (head) 'fine' for World Series Gm 1 vs. Rays
    Max Muncy (head) told FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal that he is "fine" for Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night against the Rays.

    Advice: Rosenthal provided that update live on MLB Network. Muncy took a ground ball to the face, just below his right eye, while participating in infield practice on Tuesday evening at Globe Life Field, but he got treatment and then popped back out of the clubhouse for a full round of batting practice. The 30-year-old slugger will start at first base and hit cleanup in World Series Game 1 versus the Rays and right-hander Tyler Glasnow. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:12 pm

  • Muncy struck in face during infield practice Tues.
    Max Muncy was struck in the face by a ground ball while participating in infield practice before Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jon Morosi of MLB Network notes that Muncy "walked calmly to the clubhouse for treatment" by the Dodgers' medical staff and returned to the field around 12 minutes later to take live batting practice. It sounds like he avoided a serious injury. Muncy is currently slated to start at first base and beat cleanup for the Dodgers in World Series Game 1 on Tuesday night against the Rays and right-hander Tyler Glasnow.

  • Hernandez ties game with solo homer off Minter
    Enrique Hernandez hit a pinch-hit solo homer to tie the game and help the Dodgers top the Braves on Sunday in Game 7 of the NLCS. 

    Advice: It may just seem that Hernandez has every clutch hit over the past few seasons, but he certainly has a bunch of them, anyway. Hernandez tied the game at 3-3 when he crushed an A.J. Minter offering into the left field stands in the sixth inning after pinch-hitting for Joc Pederson. He remains a lefty killer, and that will be his role for the Dodgers in the World Series against the Rays starting on Tuesday.  Rotoworld.com Oct 18, 9:06 pm
