  • Braves interested in keeping Markakis, Suzuki
    Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Monday that the club has interest in retaining impending free agents Nick Markakis and Kurt Suzuki.

    Advice: Anthopoulos didn't say whether any negotiations have taken place, but it's safe to assume they'll be in touch soon if they haven't already. While Markakis dropped off during the second half, he still had his best season in several years with a .297/.366/.440 batting line to go along with 14 homers and 93 RBI. He'll turn 35 in November. Suzuki worked as part of a tandem with Tyler Flowers once again while batting .271/.332/.444 with 12 homers and 50 RBI over 105 games. He turned 35 earlier this month.

  • Martinez expected to resume starting
    Cardinals manager Mike Shildt expects Carlos Martinez to return to a starting role in the spring.

    Advice: After dealing with arm and side issues, Martinez finished the season in the bullpen and reeled off five saves down the stretch, but all involved see the value in him returning to a starting role following an offseason conditioning program. "I think the front office and everybody would like to see him show up in spring training as a starter. I like those sentiments," said Shildt. It's the smart play, as Martinez has the track record to suggest he can provide immense upside if he returns to full health. As for the Cardinals' closer role, the situation is unsettled at the moment, but Jordan Hicks probably deserves to be considered the favorite. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:10 am
  • Eovaldi starting ALCS Game 3 on Tuesday
    Nathan Eovaldi will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday.

    Advice: Rick Porcello was previously lined up to start Game 3, but he was needed out of the bullpen in Sunday's Game 2 victory. Eovaldi is coming off seven innings of one-run ball with five strikeouts and no walks in his Game 3 start against the Yankees during the ALDS. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:26 am
     
  • Marwin Gonzalez hopeful to play in Game 3
    Marwin Gonzalez is hopeful he'll be in the lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Tuesday.

    Advice: Gonzalez crashed into the left field wall while trying to make a catch in the bottom of the third inning, banging up his head and neck in the process. He received treatment and an IV, but was able to remain in the game. The hope is that he'll be ready to go following Monday's off-day. "I'm pretty sore, but nothing that will get me out of the field," said Gonzalez. "Let's see how I wake up tomorrow." Rotoworld.com Today, 5:59 am

  • Marwin Gonzalez hits two-run homer in loss
    Marwin Gonzalez blasted a two-run homer as the Astros fell to the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALCS on Sunday night in Boston.

    Advice: Gonzalez crushed his go-ahead two-run shot off of Red Sox' starter David Price in the third inning, giving the Astros a 4-2 lead. He finished the night 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts and is now slashing .381/.435/.619 with seven RBI in the postseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm

  • Gerrit Cole struggles in Game 2 loss to BoSox
    Gerrit Cole struggled in a losing effort against the Red Sox in Game 2 of the ALCS on Sunday night, surrendering five runs (four earned) on six hits over his six frames.

    Advice: Cole racked up five strikeouts on the night while issuing a pair of free passes. He ran into trouble early on, giving up a pair of runs in the first inning. The real damage came in the third though, where Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a three-run double to put the Red Sox ahead for good. Cole will hope for better results in a rematch against David Price in Game 6 should the series last that long. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
     
  • Porcello works eighth inning in ALCS Game 2
    Rick Porcello played a pivotal role out of the Red Sox' bullpen on Sunday, working a perfect eighth inning to protect a two-run lead against the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS.

    Advice: With the Red Sox' bullpen taxed in the first two games of the series, manager Alex Cora needed a bridge in the eighth inning to get the ball to closer Craig Kimbrel, and Porcello was up to the job. He needed just 18 pitches, 15 of them strikes, to retire the side which included strikeouts of Marwin Gonzalez and Carlos Correa. He had been scheduled to start Game 3 of the series, but he'll likely swap with Nathan Eovaldi now and pitch in Game 4 instead. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
     
  • Price one out shy of first postseason victory
    David Price came up one out shy of earning his first postseason victory on Sunday, surrendering four runs on five hits over his 4 2/3 innings of work.

    Advice: The left-hander walked four and struck out four in the ballgame. After the Red Sox had taken an early 2-0 lead, he gave up two runs in the second inning on a two-run single by George Springer. He then served up a two-run blast to Marwin Gonzalez in the third inning. Price was lifted with a 5-4 lead with two outs in the fifth inning after issuing his second walk of the inning and with Gonzalez strolling to the dish again. Despite the mediocre effort, he walked off the field to a standing ovation from the Fenway faithful. He's likely to get the ball again in a potential Game 6 should the series get that far.

  • Craig Kimbrel escapes ninth again with save
    Craig Kimbrel escaped the ninth inning again on Sunday, shutting down the Astros to earn his third save of the postseason.

    Advice: Kimbrel was shaky his last time out, allowing two runs in Game 4 of the ALDS against the Yankees, and made things interesting again on Sunday. He allowed a two-out double to George Springer and an RBI single to Jose Altuve, bringing Alex Bregman to the plate as the game's tying run. Kimbrel was able to bear down though, getting Bregman on a fly ball to end the ballgame. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
     
  • Mookie Betts has RBI double in Game 2 win
    Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and an RBI on Sunday as the Red Sox defeated the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS.

    Advice: Bett's run-scoring double off of Tony Sipp in the eighth inning increased the Red Sox' lead to 7-4. It's just the third multi-hit game that Betts has had in his postseason career, and came at a time when the Red Sox needed it most. He's now hitting .250/.357/.375 with three RBI this postseason.

  • Rafael Devers reaches three times in Game 2
    Rafael Devers went 2-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI as the Red Sox topped the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS to even the series at a game apiece.

    Advice: Devers also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely in three of his four plate appearances. He lined an RBI single into left field in the first inning that increased the Red Sox' advantage to 2-0. With as good of a game as he had in every facet, and with Eduardo Nunez struggling defensively, manager Alex Cora should consider keeping Devers in the lineup for Game 3, even with left-hander Dallas Keuchel on the hill for the Astros. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
     
  • Bradley plates three as Red Sox win Game 2
    Jackie Bradley delivered a go-ahead three-run double off of Gerrit Cole in the third inning on Sunday, propelling the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS.

    Advice: The Red Sox entered the frame trailing 4-2, but things got interesting when Xander Bogaerts lined a one-out single into center and Steve Pearce followed with a double. Rafael Devers then drew a walk to load the bases. After Ian Kinsler struck out for the second out of the inning, Bradley sliced a double into the left field corner to clear the bases and put the Red Sox ahead to stay. They'll now head to Houston with the series knotted up at a game each. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
     
  • Sale admitted to hospital with stomach issue
    Chris Sale was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital on Saturday due to a stomach illness.

    Advice: While the issue is not believed to be severe, Sale will be held overnight for observation. It's unclear if the illness played any role in his performance on Saturday or his uncharacteristically poor command. Look for the Red Sox to provide an update on his status on Monday.

  • Yasmani Grandal to start behind plate Game 3
    Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts announced Sunday that Yasmani Grandal will start behind the plate for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Brewers.

    Advice: Grandal had about as bad of a Game 1 as humanly possible, with a pair of errors and two passed balls in a losing effort. He then pinch-hit in Game 2 with the bases loaded and the Dodgers trailing by a run, where he grounded into a double play in which he hilariously slid feet-first into first base. Still, Roberts has faith in his starting backstop, and he'll be back there in a pivotal Game 3 to catch for Walker Buehler. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:23 pm
  • Astros roll out same lineup for ALCS Game 2
    Astros' manager A.J. Hinch will roll out the same lineup for Game 2 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: If it isn't broke, don't fix it, right? There was some speculation that Brian McCann could work his way into the lineup with the success he's had in his career against David Price, but Martin Maldonado remains behind the dish. Here's how they'll line up behind right-hander Gerrit Cole: George Springer CF, Jose Altuve 2B, Alex Bregman 3B, Yuli Gurriel 1B, Tyler White DH, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Carlos Correa SS, Maldonado C and Josh Reddick RF. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:45 pm
  • Charlie Morton tabbed for Game 4 of ALCS
    Charlie Morton will start Game 4 of the ALCS against the Red Sox.

    Advice: The Astros will roll out veteran left-hander Dallas Keuchel in Game 3 after Gerrit Cole gets the ball in Game 2. Morton has yet to appear in a game this postseason, but is 2-2 with a 4.03 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in six career postseason appearances (five starts). Morton struggled in two starts against the Red Sox during the regular season, posting a 6.97 ERA and 1.84 WHIP in 10 1/3 innings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:40 pm
     
  • Rafael Devers at 3B for Red Sox in Game 2
    Rafael Devers is starting at third base and batting sixth for the Red Sox in Sunday's ALCS Game 2 against the Astros.

    Advice: It's only Devers' second start of the postseason, as the Red Sox have mostly gone with Eduardo Nunez at third base. However, Nunez is just 2-for-14 so far at the plate in the playoff and was unable to make a key play in the field in Game 1. The Red Sox' full lineup looks like this: Mookie Betts RF, Andrew Benintendi LF, J.D. Martinez DH, Xander Bogaerts SS, Steve Pearce 1B, Devers 3B, Ian Kinsler 2B, Jackie Bradley Jr. CF, Christian Vázquez C. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm
     
  • Chris Sale struggles with command in Game 1
    Chris Sale struggled with his command in Game 1 of the ALCS against the Astros on Saturday, allowing two runs on one hit and four walks over his four innings of work.

    Advice: Even without his best stuff, Sale battled out there, registering four strikeouts over his four innings while throwing only 50 of his 86 pitches for strikes. All of the damage against him came in the second inning, where George Springer was able to sneak a two-run single under the glove of third baseman Eduardo Nunez that could have been ruled an error. When Sale missed his spots early in the game, he missed badly and also exhibited diminished velocity throughout the night. He'll attempt to figure things out before taking the hill again in a potential Game 5. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:15 pm

  • Heyman: Markakis won't get qualifying offer
    Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reports that Nick Markakis will not receive the qualifying offer from the Braves.

    Advice: Markakis will hit the free agent market after turning 35 in November, and teams will be able to sign him without worry of giving up a draft pick; assuming Heyman's report is correct. He's coming off his best season in years with an .803 OPS, 14 homers and 93 RBI. He should see interest from other clubs, but because of his age, he's probably looking at a short-term contract. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:23 pm
     
  • Price to start Game 2 against Cole in ALCS
    David Price will start Game 2 of the ALCS against the Astros on Sunday.

    Advice: He will be facing off against Gerrit Cole. There was some talk that Price could be pushed back after he struggled in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Yankees, but Red Sox manager Alex Cora will stick with the veteran southpaw -- possibly for an abbreviated outing. Nathan Eovaldi and Rick Porcello are lined up for ALCS Games 3 and 4, but they are both options to be used in long relief behind Price. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:30 pm
    W, 10-2 vs NYY
     
  • Cole will start Game 2 of ALCS vs. Red Sox
    Gerrit Cole will get the ball for ALCS Game 2 against the Red Sox on Sunday.

    Advice: Cole will go against David Price, with Justin Verlander facing off against Chris Sale in the ALCS opener. Cole was outstanding in his first start of the postseason, fanning 12 hitters over seven innings of one-run ball in a victory over the Indians. If he repeats that effort, the Astros are going to be awfully hard to beat. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:19 pm
     
  • Kimbrel shaky in ninth but earns Game 4 save
    Craig Kimbrel allowed two runs in the ninth inning but ultimately earned the save as the Red Sox beat the Yankees 4-3 in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday.

    Advice: Kimbrel looked shaky throughout the frame, as he allowed a Didi Gregorius single and a Gary Sanchez run-scoring sac fly, issued two walks, and hit a batter with the bases loaded. But the hard-throwing closer struck out Giancarlo Stanton and eventually induced a replay-reviewed game-ending groundout from Gleyber Torres as the Red Sox advanced to a best-of-seven ALCS matchup against the Astros. Boston needs much better from Kimbrel next round. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:55 pm
     
  • Sale works perfect eighth inning vs. Yankees
    Chris Sale pitched a perfect eighth inning Tuesday as the Red Sox defeated the Yankees in Game 4 of the ALDS.

    Advice: Red Sox manager Alex Cora told reporters before the game that he would only use Sale in relief in a "perfect situation," and that situation came up with Boston leading 4-1 in the bottom of the eighth and the Yankees' 8-9-1 hitters stepping to the plate. Sale needed just 13 total pitches to retire Gleyber Torres, Andrew McCutchen, and Aaron Hicks. The ace left-hander should be ready to rock for Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday against the Astros.

  • Porcello goes five strong, Red Sox to ALCS
    Rick Porcello worked five innings of one-run ball in Game 4 of the ALDS on Tuesday night against the Yankees, helping the Red Sox advance to the ALCS.

    Advice: Porcello kept the dangerous Yankees lineup off balance with an array of sinkers, four-seamers, and breaking balls, scattering four hits -- two doubles, two singles -- before exiting to a 4-1 lead. Boston would go on to win the game 4-3, with Matt Barnes, Ryan Brasier, Chris Sale, and Craig Kimbrel navigating the final four frames. Porcello tallied just one strikeout but issued zero walks in the crisp 65-pitch performance. He'll be lined up to start Game 3 or 4 of the American League Championship Series against the Astros, though the former AL Cy Young Award winner could very well be used out of the bullpen before then. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:37 pm
     
  • Eovaldi stymies Yanks as Red Sox take Game 3
    Making his first ever postseason start, Nathan Eovaldi limited the Yankees to one run on just five hits and no walks over seven innings Monday in the Red Sox’ 16-1 ALDS Game 3 win.

    Advice: When asked Sunday what he expected from Eovaldi in Game 3, manager Alex Cora replied "seven innings, two hits, one run." Not bad, skip. Eovaldi gave up a run in the bottom of the fourth inning after sitting through a lengthy top of the fourth when the Red Sox plated seven runs, but he was dominant otherwise. The right-hander seemed to get stronger as the game went along, as he retired 12 of the last 13 batters he faced and touched 100 mph in his final inning. Eovaldi should be slotted in for Game 3 of the ALCS if the Red Sox advance and could possibly be pushed up ahead of David Price to Game 2. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:58 pm
     
  • Chris Sale not an option for Game 4
    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Monday that Chris Sale is not under consideration to start ALDS Game 4 if the team is up against elimination.

    Advice: Cora will go with Rick Porcello in Game 4 even if the Red Sox lose Game 3, saving Sale for a potential Game 5. The left-hander's recent shoulder issues surely ruled out any possibility that the skipper would use his ace on short rest. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:34 pm

  • Devers in at 3B for Red Sox in Game 3
    Rafael Devers will start at third base in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Other changes of note include Brock Holt at second base and Steve Pearce at first base. Christian Vazquez will start behind the plate and catch Nathan Eovaldi. The full lineup for Boston: Mookie Betts RF, Andrew Benintendi LF, J.D. Martinez DH, Xander Bogaerts SS, Devers 3B, Pearce 1B, Holt 2B, Vazquez C, Jackie Bradley, Jr. CF. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:38 pm
     
  • David Price will be available in relief
    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Sunday that he expects David Price to be available in relief in the coming days.

    Advice: Price was pulled from his ALDS Game 2 start on Saturday after just 1 2/3 innings and 42 pitches. With the club having Nathan Eovaldi lined up for Game 2, Rick Porcello for Game 4 and Chris Sale for a possible Game 5, if Price pitches again this series it will be out of the bullpen.

  • Red Sox starting Nathan Eovaldi in Game 3
    Nathan Eovaldi will start for the Red Sox in ALDS Game 3 versus the Yankees on Monday.

    Advice: Eovaldi had seemingly been in line to start Game 4, but he'll be moved up to Game 3 after Rick Porcello pitched in relief in Game 1. He'll be opposed by Luis Severino. Porcello will now take the ball in Game 4. Eovaldi posted a 2.11 ERA over three starts against the Yankees during the regular season. Rotoworld.com Oct 7, 11:03 am
     
  • Price gets just five outs in ALDS Game 2 loss
    David Price wasn't long for Saturday's ALDS Game 2 start, going just 1 2/3 innings, allowing three runs, in a loss to the Yankees.

    Advice: The second batter of the game, Aaron Judge, destroyed a Price offering to deep center for a solo homer, the first sign of trouble. Price made it through the rest of the frame unscathed but yielded another solo homer to Gary Sanchez to start the second. He got two more outs but then walked Gleyber Torres and Brett Gardner -- the Yankees' eighth- and ninth-place hitters -- before an Andrew McCutchen RBI single extended the Yanks' lead and ended Price's night. The southpaw's postseason failures are well documented, and after Saturday's showing he now has a 5.28 ERA in 18 career postseason appearances. The Sox will surely need him in a potential championship series -- perhaps even later in this series -- so that number still has a chance to go up, or down, this October. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 8:52 pm

  • Gonzalez has four-hit day in win over Indians
    Marwin Gonzalez went 4-for-4 with two RBI in the Astros' win over the Indians in Saturday's ALDS Game 2.

    Advice: Indians starter Carlos Carrasco couldn't get Gonzalez out, allowing a pair of singles in two at-bats, so when the switch-hitter stepped to the dish with two on and one out in the sixth inning Indians manager Terry Francona opted to remove Carrasco and bring in southpaw Andrew Miller. The plan didn't work, as Gonzalez slapped a Miller offering to right field for a two-run double to give the Astros the lead. He later added yet another single to complete the four-hit afternoon. He's now got five hits in eight at-bats through the series' first two games. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 4:53 pm

  • Cole fans 12 Indians in dominant Game 2 win
    Gerrit Cole struck out 12 Indians over seven innings, allowing a stray solo home run in a 3-1 win in Saturday's ALDS Game 2.

    Advice: There was a point where Cole was trending to be a tough-luck loser, as his counterpart, Carlos Carrasco, was holding the Astros offense down, but a pair of runs in the sixth inning were enough, and the big right-hander took care of the rest. He finished allowing just three hits, including a third-inning solo homer, and zero walks. Cole's 12 strikeouts tied Nolan Ryan's total from the 1986 NLCS Game 5, the third-highest postseason total for an Astros pitcher in the team's history behind only Mike Scott in 1986 NLCS Game 1, who struck out 14, and Justin Verlander's 13 punchouts in Game 2 of the 2017 ALCS. It was also the first time all year a pitcher recorded 12 strikeouts against the Indians. So, you know, it was a pretty good day for Cole and the Astros, who hold a 2-0 series lead heading to Cleveland for Monday's Game 3. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 4:52 pm
     
  • Cora: Porcello available, but could start G3
    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Rick Porcello will be available out of the bullpen for Saturday's ALDS Game 2.

    Advice: Porcello provided arguably the biggest boost in relief in Game 1, getting two outs in the eighth inning to bridge the gap to closer Craig Kimbrel, so it will be interesting to see how quick Cora is to use Porcello in a tight spot in Game 2 with the consideration of a potential Game 3 start as well. If he is used, Nathan Eovaldi will draw the Game 3 start instead. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 2:10 pm
     
  • Devers still absent from lineup for Game 2
    Rafael Devers is not in the Red Sox lineup for their ALDS Game 2 Saturday against the Yankees.

    Advice: There's no reason to suspect anything untoward -- the Sox won Game 1 with basically the same lineup as they rolled out for Game 2, so the "ain't broke, don't fix it" adage applies -- but it's still worth noting that he's now been passed over for Eduardo Nunez twice thus far, especially when manager Alex Cora expressed belief that Devers would draw the start barring a huge game from Nunez on Friday. Nunez was relatively quiet but still penciled in on Saturday. That said, we'll likely see Devers before this series is out, in some capacity. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 1:43 pm
     
  • Cole takes the mound vs Indians in Game 2
    Gerrit Cole will lead the Astros against the Indians in Game 2 of the ALDS on Saturday.

    Advice: The Astros will roll with the same lineup as they did in their Game 1 victory: George Springer CF, Jose Altuve 2B, Alex Bregman 3B, Yuli Gurriel 1B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Carlos Correa SS, Tyler White DH, Josh Reddick RF and Martin Maldonado at catcher. The Astros put up seven runs on the strength of four homers against Corey Kluber and the Indians' bullpen in Game 1, so they see little reason to shake things up in this one. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 11:44 am
     
  • Porcello might not be ready to start Game 3
    Rick Porcello threw a bullpen session before Game 1 of the American League Division Series against the Yankees on Friday and then was unexpectedly used to pitch in the eighth inning, threatening his availability to start Game 3.

    Advice: Porcello is the scheduled starter for Game 3, but due to all the pitches he threw on Friday in the bullpen and during the game he may not be ready to start on Monday. The Red Sox could move Tuesday's Game 4 starter Nathan Eovaldi up a day to take care of Game 3 instead. Rotoworld.com Oct 6, 6:26 am
     
  • Yasmani Grandal goes deep in Game 2 victory
    Yasmani Grandal belted a solo homer on Friday, helping to power the Dodgers to a victory over the Braves in Game 2 of the NLDS.

    Advice: Grandal smashed his solo shot off of Braves' starter Anibal Sanchez in the fifth inning, increasing the Dodgers' advantage to 3-0. It wound up being unnecessary insurance though as the Dodgers' pitching staff kept the Braves off the board for the second consecutive night. The hard-hitting backstop finished the night 1-for-3. Rotoworld.com Oct 5, 9:34 pm
  • Porcello pitches eighth inning in Game 2 win
    Rick Porcello came out of the Red Sox' bullpen to get two outs in the eighth inning in Game 1 of the ALDS against the Yankees on Friday.

    Advice: This isn't the first time that Porcello -- the Red Sox' scheduled starter for Game 3 -- has made an impact out of the bullpen, as he also worked a scoreless eighth inning in Game 1 of the ALDS last season. After getting the first two outs in the frame, he allowed an infield single to Gleyber Torres before giving way to Craig Kimbrel. He threw only 15 pitches in the game and should still be ready to go for Game 3 on Monday. Rotoworld.com Oct 5, 8:28 pm
     
  • Craig Kimbrel records four out save in Game 1
    Craig Kimbrel slammed the door on the Yankees in Game 1 of the ALDS on Friday, recording the final four outs to preserve a two-run advantage against the Yankees.

    Advice: Kimbrel came on in relief of Rick Porcello in the eighth inning and was able to strand Gleyber Torres on base. He didn't make things easy for himself, giving up a solo homer to Aaron Judge leading off the ninth, but battled back to strike out Brett Gardner, Giancarlo Stanton and Luke Voit in succession to put the game away. He remains one of the truly elite ninth-inning options in all of baseball. Rotoworld.com Oct 5, 8:28 pm
     
  • Chris Sale fans eight in win over Yankees
    Chris Sale racked up eight strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings of two-run baseball on Friday, leading the Red Sox to victory over the Yankees in Game 1 of the ALDS.

    Advice: Sale allowed five hits and two walks in the contest. He left the game with two men on and one out in the sixth inning, and both runs came around to score off of Ryan Brasier. The star southpaw was the first Red Sox' hurler to pitch into the sixth inning in the postseason since Game 6 of the 2013 World Series. He'll now sit back and wait his turn until a potential Game 5 against the Yankees. Rotoworld.com Oct 5, 8:28 pm
