  • Daniel Murphy undergoes right knee surgery
    Daniel Murphy underwent a debridement and microfracture surgery on Friday to repair damage to the articular cartilage in his right knee.

    Advice: Murphy tore the MCL in the same knee many years ago but this is the first we've heard of any knee issues since then. The Nationals did not reveal a timetable for his return, only saying that he will rehab "throughout the offseason." It's a significant operation, so it's certainly possible that Murphy will be limited in spring training. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago

  • Tigers will decline Anibal Sanchez's option
    Tigers manager Al Avila said Friday that the team will decline Anibal Sanchez's $16 million option for 2018.

    Advice: The decision was a mere formality, of course. Sanchez had a nice 104/29 K/BB ratio over 105 1/3 innings this season, but he posted a 6.41 ERA and has put up a 5.67 mark across the last three campaigns. Slated to turn 34 in February, Sanchez will probably have a tough time finding a guaranteed rotation spot in 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am
  • Tanaka opt-out decision appears up in the air
    Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports writes that Masahiro Tanaka not using the opt-out clause in his contract "does not seem like such a safe assumption anymore."

    Advice: Heyman says that "there had been an assumption by many" that Tanaka would not opt out of the three years and $67 million remaining on his deal with the Yankees, but the righty could be re-evaluating things following his brilliant run this postseason. Tanaka, who turns 29 in a couple weeks, would surely be able to get more than three years and $67 million on the open market even though he's been pitching with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament for a few years. Heyman was told by a Yankees source that the club wouldn’t "chase" Tanaka if he did opt out, although he was told that prior to Tanaka's superb showing during the playoffs. The Yanks "are determined to get below the $197 million luxury tax threshold" this offseason, according to Heyman. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:41 am
  • Kershaw to start Game 1 of World Series
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after Thursday's game that Clayton Kershaw would start Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Dodgers could give Kershaw extra rest by using him in Games 2 and 6, but they'd have more flexibility in how they'd use him over the rest of the series by giving him the ball in Game 1. It's doubtful that they'll try pitching in Game 4 on three days' rest, but using him in Game 5 would allow him to potentially pitch in relief in Game 7. Roberts didn't talk about the rest of the rotation, but it seems likely that Yu Darvish will pitch in Game 2, followed by Rich Hill and Alex Wood. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Seager expected to play in Game 1
    The Dodgers expect Corey Seager to be ready to go in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.

    Advice: Seager didn't play in the NLCS because of a back strain. His return could push Charlie Culberson off the roster, even though Culberson played well in the NLCS. An alternative would be to drop Joc Pederson, since Chris Taylor is likely to go back to playing center field anyway. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:52 pm

  • Hernandez powers Dodgers to World Series
    Kiké Hernandez hit three homers and drove in seven runs Thursday as the Dodgers crushed the Cubs 11-1 to win Game 5 of the NLCS and advance to the World Series.

    Advice: Hernandez had a solo homer in the second, a grand slam to break the game open in the third and then a two-run shot to punctuate his night in the ninth. He became the first player to hit three homers in a postseason game since... well, since Jose Altuve two weeks ago against the Red Sox. However, he's just the fifth player ever to knock in seven runs and the first National Leaguer ever. The last American Leaguer was Boston's Troy O'Leary in the 1999 ALDS. He's the first player with three homers and seven RBI in a postseason game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm

  • Clayton Kershaw strong for six in win
    Clayton Kershaw pitched six innings of one-run ball as the Dodgers closed out the NLCS on Thursday.

    Advice: It might have been interesting to see if Kershaw would have stayed in a 2-1 game tonight, given that the seventh has been his danger inning. However, with the Dodgers up 9-1, there was no reason to keep him in past the sixth, even if he was at just 89 pitches. Kershaw now has a 3.63 ERA in his three starts this October. The Dodgers will have the option of bringing him back for Game 1 of the World Series on normal rest, though it might make more sense to go with Yu Darvish then and set up Kershaw for Games 2 and 6. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Jose Quintana charged with six runs
    Jose Quintana was charged with six runs in two-plus innings Thursday in losing to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Quintana allowed singles runs in the first and second innings before allowing four straight to reach to begin the third. Hector Rondon -- a surprising choice with the season on the line -- took over and gave up a grand slam to the second batter he faced, essentially ending this one early. Quintana pitched well in his previous two postseason starts (three runs -- two earned -- in 11 1/3 innings), so he shouldn't go down as the goat here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:37 pm
  • Anthony Rizzo finishes NLCS 1-for-17
    Anthony Rizzo went 0-for-4 on Thursday to finish the NLCS 1-for-17 with eight strikeouts.

    Advice: It was a tough series for most of the Cubs' bats, but Rizzo fared worse of all. He starred when the Cubs faced the Dodgers in the NLCS last year, going 8-for-25 with two homers and five RBI in the six-game series win. He just didn't have it this time around. No one did. The only Cubs starter to bat over .200 was Willson Contreras, who came in at .222 (4-for-18). Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm

  • Ryan Braun open to move to infield
    Ryan Braun indicated that he'd be open to moving to first base in a radio interview with WTMJ-AM this week.

    Advice: It's probably not something the Brewers will discuss this winter, though it could be a possibility come 2019. It also might become a factor if Braun's name comes up in trade talks again. He was rumored to be going to the Dodgers in Aug. 2016, and there was again some speculation there in the spring. Braun now has full no-trade protection, and while he still might be willing to go to the Dodgers, it doesn't appear that he's interested in playing anywhere else. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:02 pm
  • Zobrist in RF, hitting eighth in NLCS Game 5
    Ben Zobrist is starting in right field and batting eighth in Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday night against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Jason Heyward and Jon Jay are on the bench with Los Angeles throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Here is the full lineup for the Cubs, who trail 3-1 in the best-of-seven series: Albert Almora CF, Kyle Schwarber LF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Addison Russell SS, Javier Baez 2B, Ben Zobrist RF, Jose Quintana SP.

  • Hyun Soo Kim hoping to play in MLB in 2018
    Hyun Soo Kim told Yonhap News Agency in Japan that he is hoping to play for a major league team in 2018.

    Advice: Kim may have to settle for a minor league contract this winter after batting just .231/.307/.292 over 239 plate appearances between the Orioles and Phillies in 2017. "It's not something I can control," he said of a potential landing spot in free agency. "Obviously, I'd love to stay in the majors. ... I'll just try to do the best I can." Kim turns 30 years old in January. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:55 am

  • Bellinger crushes solo shot in loss to Cubs
    Cody Bellinger crushed a solo homer in the third inning of a 3-2 loss to the Cubs in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: Bellinger destroyed a fastball from Chicago starter Jake Arrieta to pull the Dodgers to within 2-1. Outside of that blast, Bellinger was held in check, and he hit into the game-ending double play off of Wade Davis. For the series, he's now hitting .235/.278/.471. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:37 pm

  • Wood homer prone in loss to Dodgers in Game 4
    Alex Wood gave up three solo homers in 4 2/3 innings in a 3-2 loss to the Cubs in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wood allowed just one other hit and he struck out seven, but the solo homers did the Dodgers in on a night where they couldn't figure out Jake Arrieta. It wasn't an atrocious outing, but it wouldn't be a surprise if this was his last start of the postseason if/when Los Angeles is able to close the Cubs out this series. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:31 pm
  • Arrieta shrugs off walks in 3-2 win over L.A.
    Jake Arrieta walked five hitters, but also struck out nine and allowed just one run in 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arrieta clearly didn't have great command of any of his arsenal, but he was able to keep the Dodger hitters off-balance, and when he needed to make a pitch, he was able to. It wasn't vintage Arrieta, but it was certainly good enough to allow the Cubs to win on Wednesday. He could be a bullpen option in Game 6 and 7, if necessary. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:24 pm
  • Baez blasts two bombs in 3-2 Cubs victory
    Javier Baez went 2-for-3 with two solo blasts in a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

    Advice: Both of the blasts came off of Alex Wood, one in the second and one in the fifth. Baez has struggled to hit for average in this postseason, but he's now slugging .889 for this series, which is good. With his bat speed, he can turn any pitch on any part of the plate out of the park. Baez and the Cubs will look to stay alive and take the series to Los Angeles in Game 5 on Thursday.

  • Tanaka brilliant in Game 5 win, Yanks up 3-2
    Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant on Wednesday, giving up just three hits in seven shutout innings of a 5-0 win over the Astros in Game 5 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Tanaka was good in Game 1, but that performance pales in comparison to his effort on Wednesday. The only time Houston challenged him was when they had runners on first-and-second with one out in the fifth, but he struck out George Springer and Josh Reddick to end the threat. Long-story-short, Tanaka has pitched like the ace the Yankees paid for this postseason. Game Six will be played in Houston on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:34 pm
  • No Zobrist in lineup for Cubs for Game 4
    Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jayson Heyward is also out of the lineup for the Cubs against southpaw Alex Wood for the Dodgers. The Cubs will go with Albert Almora CF, Kyle Schwarber LF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Addison Russell SS, Javy Baez 2B, Jon Jay RF, and Jake Arrieta on the mound.

  • Corey Seager (back) did weight work Tuesday
    Corey Seager (back) worked out in the weight room on Tuesday.

    Advice: And he might begin playing catch on Wednesday. Seager was left off the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series, but the young shortstop is aiming to return for the World Series if Los Angeles can finish off the Cubs and advance. He injured his back in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:54 pm

  • Corey Seager (back) won't travel with Dodgers
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday that Corey Seager (back) won't travel with the team to Chicago.

    Advice: Seager was left off the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS, but Roberts said he's feeling "continuing improvement" in his back. The star shortstop hasn't done any real baseball activities since receiving the epidural in his back, but he still has a chance to be active if the Dodgers advance to the World Series.

  • Corey Seager (back) feeling improvement
    According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Corey Seager (back) feels "considerably better."

    Advice: The Dodgers caught many off guard when they left Seager off their NLCS roster due to a sprained lower back, but he now says he's feeling "normal-ish" after receiving an epidural injection from Dr. Robert Watkins. There are no current plans for him to travel with the team, though Roberts indicated that things could change. It's possible he'll do some baseball activities as soon as Monday. Seager would only be eligible to be added to the NLCS roster if there's an injury, but it sounds like he could be an option if the Dodgers advance to the World Series. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:34 am

  • Cody Bellinger reaches three times in victory
    Cody Bellinger went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk as the Dodgers beat the Cubs to take a commanding 2-0 series lead in the NLCS on Sunday.

    Advice: As a club, the Dodgers tallied just five hits in the contest, with Bellinger and Justin Turner collecting two apiece. The rookie first baseman played a major role in carrying the club's offense through the regular season and is slashing a healthy .286/.348/.476 in the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:14 pm

  • Kershaw pulled after five in NLCS opener
    Clayton Kershaw allowed two runs over five innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Cubs in Game 1 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Kershaw danced around trouble through the game's first three innings but couldn't escape it in the fourth, when Albert Almora socked a two-run homer to give the Cubs a lead. The homer was the fifth given up by Kershaw in two postseason starts this year. He finished with four hits and a walk allowed, striking out four, and didn't factor in the decision. Given how evenly matched these two teams are, there's a good chance we'll see the southpaw again before the series is over. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Quintana yields two runs to Dodgers in Game 1
    Jose Quintana allowed two runs in his five innings of work Saturday, settling for a no-decision in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Quintana and Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw finished with similar lines, but they got there in two very different ways. Whereas Kershaw struggled from the outset but limited the damage, Quintana cruised through the first four innings, facing the minimum, before things went south in the fifth. A pair of walks did him in, preceding a Yasiel Puig RBI double and Charlie Culberson RBI sac fly. He only gave up two hits and walked two on the night, but he didn't stick around long enough to earn a win or loss. Quintana should get his chance at revenge later in the series. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Cubs line up Arrieta for Game 4 start at home
    Jake Arrieta will start NLCS Game 4 against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll follow Jon Lester in Sunday's Game 2 and Kyle Hendricks going in Game 3 on Tuesday. Arrieta wasn't awful in his lone Division Series start, allowing just an unearned run on two hits over four innings, but he walked five and took the loss after the Nationals blew it open in the eighth inning. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:13 pm
  • Hernandez batting cleanup for Dodgers in G1
    Enrique Hernandez is starting in left field and batting fourth for the Dodgers in Saturday's NLCS Game 1 against the Cubs.

    Advice: Hernandez kills lefties, so with southpaw Jose Quintana on the hill for the Cubs, it's the 26-year-old who moves up in a lineup without All-Star Corey Seager. Hernandez had one hit in four plate appearances in the Dodgers' Division Series win against the Diamondbacks. The rest of the Dodgers' lineup behind ace Clayton Kershaw: Chris Taylor CF; Justin Turner 3B; Cody Bellinger 1B; Hernandez LF; Logan Forsythe 2B; Austin Barnes C; Yasiel Puig RF; Charlie Culberson SS; Kershaw P.

  • Corey Seager (back) considered 'day to day'
    Corey Seager (back) is being considered "day to day" by the Dodgers.

    Advice: Well we already know he'll be out a handful of days, at least, after he was left off the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series against the Cubs. Los Angeles Times reporter Andy McCullough said Seager was given an epidural in his lower back to combat the pain he's been feeling since tweaking his back last Monday. If the Dodgers are able to advance without Seager's services, it's hard to imagine we won't see him on their World Series roster in some form. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:54 pm

  • Corey Seager (back) not on roster for NLCS
    Corey Seager (back) is not on the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS.

    Advice: It's obviously a major blow to the Dodgers to be without one of their top bats and an extremely skilled defender at shortstop. He has been sidelined since tweaking his back on Monday against the Diamondbacks. Charlie Culberson is taking his place on the Dodgers' active roster. The Dodgers will try to get by using a combination of Chris Taylor and Kike Hernandez at shortstop for this series, while Seager would be eligible to return for the World Series should the Dodgers advance.

  • Jose Quintana starts Game 1 of NLCS for Cubs
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon confirmed Saturday that Jose Quintana will start Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: He'll oppose Dodgers' star southpaw Clayton Kershaw. Quintana pitched very well in his postseason debut on Monday, allowing one run over 5 2/3 innings against the Nationals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:16 am
  • Tanaka allows two runs, loses to Astros
    Masahiro Tanaka allowed two runs in six innings and took a loss to the Astros in Game 1 of the ALCS on Friday.

    Advice: Tanaka pitched very well even though he couldn't out-duel his counterpart Dallas Keuchel. Tanaka surrendered just four hits -- all singles -- but the Astros strung three of them together in the fourth inning to produce two runs. Jose Altuve singled and stole second. Carlos Correa drove him in with a single and was in turn driven in by Yuli Gurriel. Tanaka registered three strikeouts against one walk in the strong effort. The Yankee ace will get at least one more shot at the Astros later in the series. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:47 pm
  • Kershaw to start Game 1 of NLCS vs Cubs
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced the team's starting rotation for the National League Championship Series against the Cubs.

    Advice: Clayton Kershaw will face either Jose Quintana or John Lackey in Game 1. Rich Hill will oppose Jon Lester in Game 2. Yu Darvish will start Game 3 and Alex Wood will start Game 4 for the Dodgers. The Cubs have not yet announced their starters beyond Game 2. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:37 pm
  • Seager misses Friday workout with back injury
    ESPN's David Schoenfeld reports Corey Seager will not work out on Friday as he continues to recuperate from a sore back.

    Advice: He tweaked his back on Monday as the Dodgers completed their sweep of the Diamondbacks in Game 3 of the NLDS. He has been avoiding strenuous activity since then. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Seager is questionable for Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Saturday. He also nursed elbow and ankle injuries late in the regular season and might not be at full strength as the playoffs continue. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:26 pm

  • Cubs have not yet picked a starter for Game 1
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the team is leaning toward either Jose Quintana or John Lackey to start Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Saturday.

    Advice: The coaches will meet with the front office brass this evening to make the decision. Quintana pitched well on Monday against the Nationals, allowing only an unearned run in 5 2/3 innings while making the first post-season start of his career. Lackey did not see action in the NLDS series against the Nationals, although he was available out of the bullpen. Both pitchers struggled in the first half of the season before thriving down the stretch. Clayton Kershaw will be starting Game 1 for the Dodgers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:45 pm
  • Javier Baez goes 0-for-5 in victory
    Javier Baez went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts on Thursday to finish the NLDS without a hit.

    Advice: Baez went 0-for-13 with one walk while starting four of the five games of the series. The Cubs will probably keep him in there against the Dodgers because of his defense, but his struggles will give them something to think about. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:53 pm

    The Yankees announced that Masahiro Tanaka, Luis Severino and CC Sabathia would start the first three games of the ALCS against the Astros.

    Advice: Sonny Gray, who started Game 1 of the ALDS against the Indians, will get the ball in Game 4, the Yankees confirmed. Tanaka, who shut out the Indians for seven innings on Sunday, will face off against Dallas Keuchel in Game 1. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:53 pm
  • Arrieta walks five, but allows just one run
    Jake Arrieta walked five in four innings on Wednesday, but allowed just one unearned run in a loss to the Nationals in Game 4 of the NLDS.

    Advice: The only run Arrieta allowed came on an error by Addison Russell that gave the Nationals a 1-0 lead in the top of the third. Arrieta clearly tired toward the end of the outing -- with his velocity and command both dropping -- but overall this was a respectable effort from the 31-year-old right-hander. Unfortunately, he went up against an unhittable force named Stephen Strasburg, so respectable wasn't quite good enough. Game 5 of the NLDS will be Thursday in Washington, weather permitting. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:20 pm
  • NLDS Game 4 postponed by rain in Chicago
    Tuesday night's Game 4 of the NLDS between the Nationals and Cubs has been postponed due to rain.

    Advice: The game was originally scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m. ET and finally got banged at 6:15 p.m. ET after a 45-minute delay. It will be made up with a 4:08 p.m. ET first pitch Wednesday at Wrigley Field, with Game 4 starters Jake Arrieta and Tanner Roark both staying on schedule for their respective teams. Stephen Strasburg, who's apparently under the weather, is in line to start Thursday if the Nationals can force a Game 5. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:18 pm
  • Cubs will stick with Arrieta if rainout
    Cubs manager Joe Maddon plans to stick with Jake Arrieta for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Nationals even if there's a rainout on Tuesday.

    Advice: Nothing has been determined about Tuesday's game yet, but the forecast isn't promising. A rainout would give the Cubs the option of skipping Arrieta coming off his hamstring injury while going with Kyle Hendricks in Game 4 and Jon Lester in a potential Game 5, but Maddon doesn't plan on making any changes. As of now, Hendricks would be lined up for a potential Game 5. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:02 pm
  • Baez in lineup for NLDS Game 4 vs. Nats
    Javier Baez is in the starting lineup for Game 4 of the NLDS against the Nationals on Tuesday.

  • Bellinger stars as Dodgers advance to NLCS
    Cody Bellinger smacked a solo home run and drove in two runs as the Dodgers finished off the Diamondbacks in Monday's NLDS Game 3 victory.

    Advice: Bellinger got the scoring going in the top of the first inning with an RBI groundout before cracking an opposite-field longball off of Zack Greinke in the fifth inning. He also added added a single and had multiple nice defensive plays on the night, including one where he went head over heels into the Dodgers' dugout to catch a popup. The home run was the first in what will surely be many postseason dingers over the years for Bellinger. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:51 pm
