  • Robinson Chirinos has option declined
    Mets declined C Robinson Chirinos' $6.5 million option for 2021.

    Advice: He'll receive a $1 million buyout instead. Chirinos had just a .475 OPS in 2020 but was a solid offensive catcher before that. He'll turn 37 next June, though, so he might have a difficult time finding a starting job.  Rotoworld.com Today, 1:59 pm
  • Mets officially decline Wilson Ramos' option
    Mets declined C Wilson Ramos' $10 million option for 2021.

    Advice: It was reported earlier Wednesday that this would happen and now the move is official. It's no surprise, as Ramos' defense is subpar at this point and he batted only .239/.297/.387 this season. He might have a hard time landing a full-time role this winter.

  • Mets to decline Robinson Chirinos' $6.5M option
    According to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, the Mets will decline Robinson Chirinos' $6.5 million club option for 2021.

    Advice: They will also decline Todd Frazier's $5.75 million option and a $10 million option on Wilson Ramos, as previously reported. Chirinos, who's due a $1 million buyout, slashed just .162/.232/.243 with one home run in 26 games this past season between the Rangers and Mets. He'll be a free agent this winter at age 36.

  • Mets to decline $10M option on C Wilson Ramos
    According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets will decline their $10 million club option on Wilson Ramos.

    Advice: Ramos will get a $1.5 million buyout from New York and become a free agent. The 33-year-old backstop slashed just .239/.297/.387 with five home runs and 15 RBI over 45 games during the condensed 2020 regular season while rating poorly by most defensive metrics. There is growing chatter that the Mets, under their soon-to-be-approved new owner Steve Cohen, might look to land top free agent catcher J.T. Realmuto this winter. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:58 am
     
  • Barnes catching, Smith at DH in World Series Gm 6
    Austin Barnes will start behind the plate and catch Tony Gonsolin in Game 6 of the World Series against the Rays on Tuesday.

The full lineup for Los Angeles: Mookie Betts RF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Max Muncy 1B, Smith DH, Cody Bellinger CF, Chris Taylor 2B, Pollock LF, Barnes C.

  • Cards having 'continuing discussions' with Molina
    Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Cardinals have had "continuing discussions" with Yadier Molina's representatives in recent weeks.

    Advice: There's mutual interest in a return, though Molina is reportedly open to hearing what else is out there upon hitting free agency for the first time in his career. The 38-year-old is said to be seeking a two-year contract after batting .262/.303/.359 with four home runs and 16 RBI over 42 games this past season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 am
     
  • Austin Barnes squeezes and homers in Game 3 win
    Austin Barnes laid down a successful suicide squeeze and blasted a solo home run on Friday, leading the Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over the Rays in Game 3 of the World Series.

    Advice: Barnes dropped down a beautiful bunt toward the first baseman to score Cody Bellinger in the fourth inning -- increasing the Dodgers lead to 4-0. He then crushed a solo shot off of John Curtiss in the sixth inning to cap off the scoring in the contest. Barnes finished the night 1-for-3 and is now hitting .350 (7-for-20) with a homer and three RBI in eight games this postseason. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:58 pm
     
  • Austin Barnes gets start at catcher in WS Game 3
    Austin Barnes is playing catcher and hitting ninth for the Dodgers in Friday night's World Series Game 3 versus the Rays.

    Advice: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hinted at this move in his off-day chat with the media on Thursday. Will Smith will DH and A.J. Pollock is on the bench. The full World Series Game 3 lineup for Los Angeles: Mookie Betts RF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Max Muncy 1B, Will Smith DH, Cody Bellinger CF, Chris Taylor 2B, Joc Pederson LF, Austin Barnes C. Walker Buehler is on the mound, up against Charlie Morton for Tampa Bay. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:30 pm
     
  • Austin Barnes could start at catcher in WS Gm 3
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he's considering starting Austin Barnes at catcher in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday against the Rays.

    Advice: Barnes drew the start at catcher in the Dodgers' World Series Game 1 victory on Tuesday, though he did finish 0-for-4 with two strikeouts at the plate. If he does catch Walker Buehler in Game 3 on Friday, that would make Will Smith the designated hitter. A.J. Pollock served as the DH in Wednesday night's Game 2 loss.

  • Yadier Molina wants two-year deal this offseason
    Yadier Molina's agent Melvin Roman told Jon Heyman of the Big Time Baseball Podcast that his client wants a two-year contract this winter.

    Advice: Derrick Goold, beat writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reported something similar on Tuesday. Molina is probably hoping that two-year deal will be with the Cardinals, but at this moment he is scheduled to become a free agent five days after the conclusion of the 2020 World Series. The future Hall of Fame catcher just played out the final year of a three-year, $60 million contract extension that he signed with St. Louis back in March 2017. He's spent his entire pro career with the organization, including 17 major league seasons. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:03 am

The full lineup for Los Angeles: Mookie Betts RF, Corey Seager SS, Justin Turner 3B, Max Muncy 1B, Smith DH, Cody Bellinger CF, Chris Taylor 2B, Pederson LF, Barnes C.

  • Campusano charged with felony marijuana possession
    Padres prospect catcher Luis Campusano was arrested Saturday in Georgia and charged with felony marijuana possession.

    Advice: Campusano was allegedly found with 79 grams of marijuana in his car when he was pulled over early Saturday morning in Grovetown, Georgia, near his hometown of Augusta.

The Padres acknowledged the arrest on Tuesday, but are offering no further comment at this time.
