  • Chas McCormick starting in CF in Game 6
    Chas McCormick is starting in center field and batting eighth for the Astros in Friday's ALCS Game 6 versus the Red Sox.

    Advice: Jose Siri had started two of the last three games in center, but it will be McCormick there Friday as the Astros try to close out the series. McCormick is 6-for-15 at the plate during the postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 12:56 pm
     
  • Riley Greene out of concussion protocol
    Tigers outfield prospect Riley Greene is out of concussion protocol.

    Advice: Greene was taken off the Arizona Fall League roster because of a concussion that he suffered late in the regular season while at Triple-A Toledo. He's over it now, though, and is going through his normal offseason training. The top prospect should debut at some point in 2022. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 12:47 pm

  • Marcus Wilson sent outright to Triple-A
    Mariners sent OF Marcus Wilson outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: The M's claimed Wilson off waivers in August but he never made it up to the minors. He'll now have to play his way back onto the 40-man roster. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 12:34 pm

  • Sam Haggerty outrighted off 40-man roster
    Mariners sent INF/OF Sam Haggerty outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

  • Mariners outright Shed Long off 40-man roster
    Mariners sent INF/OF Shed Long outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: Long will become a free agent following the conclusion of the World Series. The 26-year-old had some initial success with the Mariners in 2019, but he's struggled the last two seasons while battling a stress fracture in his right shin. He had a second surgery on the shin last week and his agent, Nate Heisler, said that his client will be 100 percent for spring training. Long shouldn't have trouble finding another organization willing to roll the dice on him. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 11:32 am

  • Pollock swats two homers as Dodgers stay alive
    A.J. Pollock homered twice and drove in four runs while going 3-for-5 in a rout of the Braves during Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday. 

    Advice: Pollock would be the story of this game, if not for the fact his teammate Chris Taylor swatted three homers. The outfielder got the Dodgers on the board with a solo shot off Max Fried to make it 2-1 Braves, and he cemented the blowout with a homer he admired greatly in the eighth with two on to make it 11-2. Pollock has driven in six runs while hitting .353 in the ALCS, and his effort helps keep the Dodgers alive for at least one more game on Saturday.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:42 pm

  • CT3 homers three times as Dodgers clobber Braves
    Chris Taylor homered three times and drove in six runs as the Dodgers clobbered the Braves 11-2 on Thursday in Game 5 of the NLCS. 

    Advice: It's the first time a player has hit three homers in a possible elimination game. Taylor had a chance to become that first player with four homers in a postseason game, but struck out in the ninth inning. It's a sensational game from a player that has had plenty of highs in his time with the Dodgers, and it helps the Dodgers win their seventh-consecutive game with a chance to be eliminated. Taylor and the Dodgers will head to Atlanta for Game 6 on Saturday. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:42 pm

  • Eddie Rosario leading off Game 5 against Dodgers
    Eddie Rosario is leading off and playing left field against the Dodgers on Thursday in Game 5 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Rosario was sensational in Game 4; picking up two homers and a triple while helping the Braves to a victory. Jorge Soler is active and available for Thursday's game, but he'll begin the contest on the bench. The full lineup for the Braves: Rosario LF, Ozzie Albies 2B, Freddie Freeman 1B, Austin Riley 3B, Adam Duvall CF, Joc Pederson RF, Dansby Swanson SS, Travis d'Arnaud C and Max Fried hitting ninth and pitching.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 2:18 pm

  • Pache removed from Braves' NLCS roster Thurs.
    Cristian Pache has been removed from the Braves' NLCS roster.

    Advice: Jorge Soler has returned from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of NLCS Game 5 on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium. Pache was a ninth-inning defensive replacement for the Braves in NLDS Game 4 and NLCS Game 2. He did not make a plate appearance. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:55 pm

  • Braves activate Jorge Soler off the COVID-19 IL
    Braves activated OF Jorge Soler from the COVID-19 injured list.

    Advice: Soler is 10 days removed from his COVID diagnosis and has passed through the necessary protocols to return to the Braves in time for what could be an NLCS clincher on Thursday night at Dodger Stadium. Atlanta is up 3-1 in the series. Cristian Pache has been removed from the roster in a corresponding move. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 1:50 pm

  • Sox designate Franchy Cordero for assignment
    Red Sox designated OF Franchy Cordero for assignment.

    Advice: The move clears out a 40-man roster spot for Phillips Valdez, who is off the COVID-19 injured list. Cordero carries a ton of talent and has put up stellar numbers in the upper minor leagues, but he owns a rough .221/.283/.380 career batting line in 451 plate appearances at baseball's highest level. The 27-year-old might do well to land with a rebuilding team that can offer him a regular spot to develop. He was the only major leaguer the Red Sox acquired in the three-team Andrew Benintendi trade. NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:23 am

  • Duvall homers as Braves take 3-1 lead in NLCS
    Adam Duvall homered and plated two runs in a Game 4 win in the NLCS on Wednesday over the Dodgers. 

    Advice: Duvall continues to show off his impressive power with a solo shot off Julio Urias in the second to double the Atlanta lead to 2-0. He later would drive in a run with a sac fly, and he's plated four runs in this NLCS. A victory for Atlanta on Thursday would place Duvall and the Braves in the World Series.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 8:39 pm

  • Rosario homers twice as Braves take 3-1 advantage
    Eddie Rosario homered twice, tripled and drove in four runs while going 4-for-5 in a 9-2 victory for the Braves on Wednesday over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS. 

    Advice: Rosario came just a double away from hitting the cycle, but he probably wouldn't trade his second homer for it. The 30-year-old has been blistering the baseball in the postseason, and he hit one of three homers off an ineffective Julio Urias in the second inning. The second roundtripper was a three-run shot that turned a 6-2 game into a blowout at 9-2. For the second straight year, the Braves have a 3-1 lead in the NLCS over the Dodgers, and can clinch their first trip to the World Series since 1999 with a win on Thursday.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm

  • Alvarez homers, brings home three in Game 5 rout
    Yordan Alvarez homered, drove in three runs and went 3-for-5 in a rout of the Red Sox on Wednesday in Game 5 of the ALCS. 

    Advice: Alvarez gave the Astros a 1-0 lead with a homer off Chris Sale in the second inning. The impressive left-handed hitter then doubled home two more in the sixth, and he added a single for good measure. He's driven in five runs in these first five games, and he has Houston one win away from another trip to the World Series.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 5:45 pm

  • Report: Nick Castellanos expected to opt out
    Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that Nick Castellanos is expected to decline his $16 million player option and become a free agent this offseason.

    Advice: No surprise here. Castellanos is set to cash in with a substantial multi-year deal on the open market after slashing .309/.362/.576 with 95 runs scored, a career-high 34 home runs, 100 RBI and three stolen bases across 585 plate appearances. Heyman adds that the Reds are expected to attempt to retain the 29-year-old outfielder, but there should be a healthy market for his services this offseason.

  • Cubs outright Johneshwy Fargas to Triple-A Iowa
    Cubs sent OF Johneshwy Fargas outright to Triple-A Iowa.

    Advice: Fargas appeared in 15 games for the Cubs after being scooped off waivers from the Mets in late July. The 26-year-old outfielder will continue to serve as organizational position player depth moving forward. NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 2:17 pm

  • McCormick, not Meyers, starting in CF for Game 4
    Chas McCormick will start in center field for Game 4 of the ALCS against the Red Sox on Tuesday. 

    Advice: Jake Meyers (shoulder) was in the originally submitted lineup, but it turns out that McCormick will start in center field after Jose Siri got the start in Game 3. The full lineup for the Astros as they attempt to even things up: Jose Altuve 2B, Michael Brantley LF, Alex Bregman 3B, Yordan Alvarez DH, Carlos Correa SS, Kyle Tucker RF, Yuli Gurriel 1B, McCormick CF, Martin Maldonado C. Zack Greinke is on the hill for Houston in the critical matchup. NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 1:22 pm
     
  • Chris Taylor smacks two-run double in Game 2 loss
    Chris Taylor smacked a go-ahead two-run double in the seventh inning on Sunday, but the Dodgers still wound up falling to the Braves in Game 2 of the NLCS.

    Advice: The Dodgers got their rally going with a leadoff walk by Mookie Betts, a two-out intentional walk to Will Smith and Justin Turner getting hit by a pitch. Turner then poked an 0-1 offering from Luke Jackson for a two-run double to give the Dodgers the lead. He finished the night 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a stolen base and is now hitting .286/.407/.571 with a homer and six RBI on the postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Sunday, 8:50 pm

  • Eddie Rosario delivers walk-off RBI in Game 2 win
    Eddie Rosario went 4-for-5 and delivered a walk-off RBI single off of Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning on Sunday night, leading the Braves to a 5-4 victory over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS.

    Advice: Rosario singled and was stranded in the third and fourth innings. In the eighth inning, he had a leadoff knock off of Julio Urias, advanced to second on a fly ball and then scored on an RBI single by Ozzie Albies. He came through in the clutch in the ninth though, smacking a two-out RBI single off of Corey Seager's glove and into center to bring Dansby Swanson home with the winning run. With the four-hit effort, Rosario is now hitting an impressive .409/.435/.409 with three RBI and a stolen base through six games this postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Sunday, 8:49 pm

  • Chris Taylor collects two hits in loss to Braves
    Chris Taylor went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI as the Dodgers fell to the Braves in Game 1 of the NLCS on Saturday night in Atlanta.

    Advice: Taylor got the Dodgers on the board with a game-tying RBI single off of Max Fried in the second inning. He then swiped second base but wound up being stranded there. He also led off the seventh inning with a double, was sacrificed to third by Austin Barnes, but again the Dodgers were unable to cash him in. With the two-hit night, he's now hitting .263/.348/.526 with a homer, four RBI and a stolen base this postseason. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 8:30 pm

  • Eddie Rosario leads off for Braves in NLCS Game 1
    Eddie Rosario will start in left field and lead off for the Braves on Saturday night in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Rosario has filled in admirably for Jorge Soler (COVID-19) recently, hitting .308/.357/.308 with four hits and a pair of RBI across four games this postseason. Adam Duvall will get the start in center field and righty-masher Joe Pederson will be in right field to face righty reliever Corey Knebel, who is opening a bullpen game for the Dodgers. Here's the full lineup: Eddie Rosario LF, Freddie Freeman 1B, Ozzie Albies 2B, Austin Riley 3B, Joc Pederson RF, Adam Duvall CF, Travis d'Arnaud C, Dansby Swanson SS and Max Fried P.

The Braves have elected to go with 14 position players and 12 pitchers. They will carry extra outfielder Cristian Pache once again to open the best-of-seven series.

    According to David O'Brien of The Athletic, the Braves are "operating as if" Jorge Soler (COVID-19) will miss the NLCS.

    Advice: Soler landed on the COVID-19 injured list on Tuesday afternoon, just before the Braves finished off the Brewers in Game 4 of the best-of-five National League Division Series. He'll still be in quarantine when the best-of-seven National League Championship Series gets underway on Saturday, though MLB will allow him to return mid-series if he passes through the necessary protocols. Cristian Pache filled Soler's spot on the NLDS roster. NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 1:25 pm

    Advice: Pache will join the Braves' NLDS roster after Jorge Soler tested positive for COVID-19. However, he's on the bench for Game 4 with Guillermo Heredia moving into the starting lineup. Pache is most likely to serve in a late-inning defensive replacement capacity.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 12:56 pm
