• Smacks two home runs in win
    Lewis went 2-for-3 with two home runs and a walk in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series.

    Advice: Lewis provided all the offense in this contest, as he had Kevin Gausman's number from the start and made sure to take advantage in both the first and third innings. The rookie third baseman had been on a power binge of sorts heading into the postseason, with five home runs in his 15 games to close out the regular season. During that span, he slashed .315/.422/.630 with 12 runs and 19 RBI. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 12:59 pm

  • Undergoes elbow surgery
    Machado underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the extensor tendon in his right elbow, Bernie Wilson of the Associated Press reports.

    Advice: Machado's estimated recovery timeline is between 4-to-6 months. While that likely means he will be sidelined for the vast majority of spring training, there is a chance he'll be ready to go for Opening Day in 2024. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 10:08 am

  • Added to NL Wild Card Series roster
    Peterson was added to Arizona's roster on Tuesday for its NL Wild Card Series matchup against the Brewers, Alex Weiner of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Advice: Peterson was initially left off the Diamondbacks' roster, but he will be a last-minute replacement for Jake McCarthy (oblique), who injured himself during batting practice Tuesday. Peterson will give the D-backs depth at multiple positions as they look to get past Milwaukee. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:21 am

  • Elects to become free agent
    Reynolds elected to become a free agent Tuesday, Charlie Goldsmith of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

    Advice: Reynolds made only five plate appearances in the majors this season, though he put up a respectable .865 OPS with 22 homers and 90 RBI in 115 games for the Reds' Triple-A affiliate in Louisville. The 32-year-old infielder will look to latch on with a new organization this winter. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 8:47 am

  • On bench for Game 1
    Hampson is absent from the lineup for Tuesday's NL Wild Card Series Game 1 against the Phillies.

    Advice: Jon Berti will start at shortstop and bat eighth with Joey Wendle joining Hampson on the bench. Hampson drew steady action at shortstop over the final few weeks of the regular season, but it seems he's being viewed as a super-utility option off the bench in Miami's best-of-three series at Philadelphia.

  • Starts at shortstop in Game 1
    Berti is starting at shortstop and batting eighth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Phillies.

    Advice: Garrett Hampson drew the majority of starts at shortstop in the closing weeks of the 2023 regular season, but the Marlins will ride the hot hand with Berti after he slashed .500/.609/.944 with four homers and two steals across his final 46 plate appearances of the regular season. Hampson is on the bench in Game 1, with Luis Arraez (ankle) returning at second base and Jake Burger manning third base. Joey Wendle will also ride the pine. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 5:55 am

  • Not in Game 1 lineup
    Rivera is not in the lineup Tuesday for Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Brewers.

    Advice: Evan Longoria will start at third base and bat eighth versus the Brewers and right-hander Corbin Burnes. Rivera had a promising first half this season with Arizona, but the 27-year-old slashed just .146/.234/.164 over his final 64 plate appearances dating back to the beginning of August.

  • Playing third base in Game 1
    Longoria is starting at third base and batting eighth Tuesday in Game 1 of the NL Wild Card Series against the Brewers.

    Advice: Longoria and Emmanuel Rivera are Arizona's two options at third base with Jace Peterson being left off the roster for the best-of-three series versus Milwaukee. Longoria gets the call in Tuesday's opener as Rivera rides the pine. Both players struggled offensively over the final month of the regular season. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 4:25 am

  • Starting at 2B, batting fifth
    Biggio is starting at second base and batting fifth for Tuesday's Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series in Minnesota, Ben Wagner of Sportsnet Radio reports.

    Advice: No player improved his standing with the Blue Jays in September more than Biggio, who slashed .277/.408/.374 while starting each of the final 13 games down the stretch. He played four different positions in the final month but appears in line to serve as Toronto's regular second baseman versus right-handers during the postseason. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 3:55 am
