  • Romine catching, Sanchez at DH in Game 4
    Austin Romine is starting at catcher and batting ninth for the Yankees in Tuesday's ALCS Game 4 versus the Astros.

The Yankees' full lineup is as follows: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Didi Gregorius SS, Sanchez DH, Greg Bird 1B, Starlin Castro 2B, Aaron Hicks CF, Todd Frazier 3B, Romine C. Today, 10:12 am

  • Schwarber back in left field in NLCS Game 1
    Kyle Schwarber is playing left field and batting seventh for the Cubs in Saturday's NLCS Game 1 against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Schwarber took a seat in the last game the Cubs played, Game 5 of the NLDS Thursday against the Nationals, but he's back in there against southpaw Clayton Kershaw. Jon Jay, who started in Schwarber's place in the Division Series finale, is also in Saturday's lineup, playing right field and leading off. Jason Heyward is the odd man out. The rest of the lineup behind starter Jose Quintana: Jay RF; Kris Bryant 3B; Anthony Rizzo 1B; Willson Contreras C; Albert Almora Jr. CF; Addison Russell SS; Schwarber LF; Javier Baez 2B; Quintana P. Saturday, 1:32 pm

  • Evan Gattis expected to start in ALCS Game 3
    Evan Gattis is expected to start for the Astros behind the plate for Game 3 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Brian McCann has started the first two games of the series, with Gattis expected to catch for Charlie Morton in Game 3. Gattis excels against left-handed pitching and would be a nice fit against Yankees' southpaw C.C. Sabathia. Saturday, 10:25 am

  • Sanchez strikes out three times vs Astros
    Gary Sanchez went 0-for-3 with a walk and three strikeouts in Friday's ALCS loss to the Astros.

    Advice: Starter Dallas Keuchel flummoxed the Yankee catcher all evening, fanning him all three times they faced each other. Sanchez drew a walk against closer Ken Giles in his final plate appearance. The young backstop has had an amazing season at the plate but not tonight. Friday, 9:04 pm

  • Tigers could consider trading James McCann
    Lynn Henning of the Detroit News writes that James McCann "is a player the Tigers would consider moving for a fair return."

    Advice: McCann is viewed as a good defender and had the best offensive season of his career in 2017 (although he still hit at a pretty underwhelming .253/.318/.415 clip with 13 homers). He's arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter, so the rebuilding Tigers could deal him before he starts to get expensive. Friday, 1:48 pm
  • Austin Barnes takes Zack Greinke deep
    Austin Barnes launched a solo shot in Monday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Advice: D'Backs manager Torey Lovullo tried to coax one more out of a struggling Zack Greinke in the sixth inning, but Barnes KO'd the starter with a blast to left. Barnes has made two straight starts at catcher this postseason for the Dodgers and reached base in five of nine plate appearances during the series. Monday, 10:54 pm

  • Gary Sanchez rips solo homer in Game 4 win
    Gary Sanchez socked a solo home run in Monday's ALDS Game 4 win over the Indians.

    Advice: Sanchez cranked an opposite-field shot off of reliever Bryan Shaw in the sixth inning to extend the Yankees' lead to 7-3, which turned out to be the final score. It's the young slugger's second longball in the series. The Bombers have forced a decisive Game 5 in Cleveland on Wednesday. Monday, 8:12 pm

  • Roberto Perez cranks solo home run Monday
    Roberto Perez swatted a solo home run on Monday in the Indians' loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: His opposite-field shot off of Luis Severino in the fifth inning made things interesting as it cut the Yankees' lead to 5-3, but that's all the Indians could do and the Yanks tacked on a couple more runs. A career .216/.309/.362 hitter during regular season play, Perez now has gone deep four times in 18 postseason games. Monday, 8:04 pm

  • Kyle Schwarber in lineup for NLDS Game 3
    Kyle Schwarber will start in left field and bat sixth in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Nationals on Monday.

    Advice: Schwarber sat against left-hander Gio Gonzalez in Game 2, but he's back in the lineup with righty Max Scherzer on the hill for Washington. Also of note, Jon Jay will start in center field and Jason Heyward is in right while Javier Baez is on the bench. The full lineup for Chicago: Jay CF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Ben Zobrist 2B, Schwarber LF, Heyward RF, Addison Russell SS, Jose Quintana SP. Oct 9, 8:20 am

    Evan Gattis will start at designated hitter for Game 4 of the ALDS against the Red Sox on Monday.

    Advice: The weather still warrants watching, but Gattis is slated to get the nod over Carlos Beltran at DH. The full lineup for Houston as they attempt to advance to the ALCS: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Alex Bregman 3B, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Gattis DH, Brian McCann C.

  • Vazquez catching Porcello in ALDS Game 4
    Christian Vazquez will start behind the plate in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Astros on Monday.

    Advice: Sandy Leon handled the catching duties in Game 3 on Sunday, but Vazquez will catch Rick Porcello in Game 4. He's batting eighth against right-hander Charlie Morton, assuming the weather cooperates. Oct 9, 7:40 am
  • Austin Barnes reaches three times Saturday
    Drawing the start over Yasmani Grandal, Austin Barnes reached base three times, drove in two runs and scored a pair of runs versus the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Advice: His big hit came in the Dodgers' decisive four-run fifth inning when he plated a pair of runs with a double to extend the lead to 6-2 at the time. Barnes also added a walk, a single and a stolen base. He had a pinch-hit in Game 1 and has now reached base four times in five trips to the plate this series. Oct 8, 5:40 am

  • Contreras hits solo homer in loss to Nats
    Willson Contreras hit a solo home run in Saturday's NLDS Game 2 loss to the Nationals.

    Advice: After Anthony Rendon got the scoring started with a solo shot in the first inning, Contreras answered with a dinger of his own in the top of the second. The homer was his only hit through two games of the series. Oct 7, 7:01 pm
    L, 3-1 vs Cin
  • Kyle Schwarber not in Cubs lineup on Saturday
    Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs' starting lineup for Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday.

    Advice: With left-hander Gio Gonzalez on the hill for the Nationals, Schwarber will take a seat in favor of Ian Happ. He'll function as a strong left-handed bat off the bench in this one. Oct 7, 10:39 am
    L, 3-1 vs Cin
