  • Mets decline Todd Frazier's option
    Mets declined INF Todd Frazier's $5.75 million club option for 2021.

    Advice: He'll receive a $1.5 million buyout instead. After beginning this season with the Rangers, Frazier finished it back with the Mets, posting just a .643 OPS over 14 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:57 pm

  • MLB launching investigation into Turner's actions
    Major League Baseball said in a statement Wednesday that it is "beginning a full investigation" into Justin Turner's postgame actions on Tuesday night.

    Advice: Turner was pulled from the Dodgers' World Series clincher after seven innings once the team was alerted that he had tested positive for COVID-19, but the veteran third baseman decided to take part in portions of the on-field celebration anyway, at one point removing his mask for a team photo. Turner "chose to disregard the agreed-upon joint protocols and the instructions he was given regarding the safety and protection of others," reads the statement. "While a desire to celebrate is understandable, Turner’s decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk. When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply ... The Commissioner's Office is beginning a full investigation into this matter and will consult with the Players Association within the parameters of the joint 2020 Operations Manual." It's possible Turner could be facing some sort of fine or suspension. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 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

  • Turner (COVID) 'insisted upon' joining celebration
    Ken Rosenthal said on FS1 late Tuesday that Justin Turner (COVID-19) "insisted upon" being part of the Dodgers' World Series clinching celebration.

    Advice: Turner was pulled before the eighth inning of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 win when the Dodgers were alerted that the veteran third baseman had tested positive for COVID-19, but he joined his teammates on the field 20-30 minutes after the final out and even took part in a team photo on the mound. The transcribed television report from Rosenthal: "My understanding from various people is that he was told not to go on the field, or asked not to go on the field. He insisted upon it, the Dodgers insisted upon it, and that is why he was out there. And at one point, he did have his mask off. He was mostly masked, but there was a point during the picture that he did take it off." Rosenthal also stated that "this is not a case of a false positive." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 pm

  • Turner says he has 'no symptoms' after COVID test
    Justin Turner said on his personal Twitter account late Tuesday night that he has "no symptoms at all" following a positive COVID-19 test.

    Advice: Turner played the first seven innings of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 clincher before the Dodgers were alerted about the positive test result and pulled him for Edwin Rios. Turner spent the final two innings isolated but then curiously popped out to participate in a celebratory team photo on the mound, at one point scooting closer to his teammates and removing his mask. Perhaps there was a negative test at some point between the seventh inning and the awarding of the World Series trophy, but that seems ... well ... highly unlikely. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm

  • Justin Turner exits WS Gm 6 due to COVID positive
    Justin Turner was pulled from Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday against the Rays due to a positive COVID-19 test.

    Advice: What a strange bit of news to finish off a strange season, one that resulted in the Dodgers claiming their first World Series championship since 1988. Turner played the first seven innings of Tuesday night's clincher before suddenly disappearing from the field -- and from the Dodgers' dugout -- before the top of the eighth. Edwin Rios finished out the game at third base. Look for updates on Turner's status in the coming days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:50 pm

  • Diaz triples and scores in loss to Dodgers in Gm 5
    Yandy Diaz went 2-for-3 with a triple and an RBI on Sunday in Game 5 of the World Series. 

    Advice: Diaz singled in the first, but the big hit was a triple in the third off Clayton Kershaw to score Kevin Kiermaier. He came around to score a play later on a Randy Arozarena single. Diaz hits leadoff against lefties, but with Tony Gonsolin likely starting Game 6 on Tuesday, there's a good chance that Diaz begins the contest on the bench.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:38 pm

  • 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

  • Justin Turner collects four hits in Game 4 loss
    Justin Turner went 4-for-5 with a homer, double and two runs scored as the Dodgers fell to the Rays in Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday evening in Arlington.

    Advice: For the second consecutive game, Turner opened the scoring with a two-out solo blast in the first inning -- this time off of Rays’ left-hander Ryan Yarbrough. Turner then doubled and came around to score on Joc Pederson’s two-out, two-run single in the seventh. Turner and teammate Corey Seager became the first pair of teammates since Paul Molitor and Robin Yount of the 1982 Brewers to each have four or more hits in the same World Series game. He’s now hitting .279 (17-for-61) with three homers and six RBI this postseason. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:06 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

  • Justin Turner goes deep as Dodgers take Game 3
    Justin Turner homered, doubled and scored a pair of runs as the Dodgers topped the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday evening in Arlington.

    Advice: Turner got the Dodgers on the board in the opening inning, crushing a two-strike offering from Charlie Morton over the wall in left field for a solo shot. He then doubled and scored on Max Muncy's two-run single in the third inning. With the two-hit attack, Turner is now hitting .232 (13-for-56) with a pair of homers and five RBI through 15 games this postseason. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 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

  • 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.

    Advice: It'll be his first turn at leadoff since Game 4 of the American League Division Series against the Yankees.
