  • Chirinos (elbow) will not be ready Opening Day
    Yonny Chirinos will not be ready for Opening Day day after undergoing surgery for a fractured elbow in late September.

    Advice: The 27-year-old was 13-months removed from Tommy John surgery before suffering a fractured elbow while throwing live batting practice in late September. The good news is that his repaired ulnar5 collateral ligament was not damaged. Tampa Bay hopes to have their right-hander back by late April or May if there are no further setbacks. Today, 2:22 pm
  • Sawamura (hamstring) could be removed from roster
    Hirokazu Sawamura is dealing with right hamstring discomfort and could be removed from the Red Sox' ALCS roster.

    Advice: Sawamura will throw prior to Friday's Game 6 and the team will make a determination on his status then. It's not clear who would take his spot. Today, 1:36 pm
  • Ryan Weber elects free agency
    Ryan Weber has elected free agency.

    Advice: The Mariners outrighted Weber off their 40-man roster and he's decided to look for a job elsewhere. Weber has a career 5.28 ERA over 63 appearances in parts of seven big league seasons. Today, 12:44 pm
    L, 3-7 vs LAA
  • Cardinals claim Ljay Newsome off waivers
    Cardinals claimed RHP Ljay Newsome off waivers from the Mariners.

    Advice: Newsome is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and likely won't be ready to pitch until at least midseason next year. When healthy, the 25-year-old's great control gives him a shot to be a back-end starter. Today, 12:42 pm
    L, 2-3 vs ChC
  • Darren McCaughan outrighted by Mariners
    Mariners sent RHP Darren McCaughan outright to Triple-A Tacoma.

    Advice: McCaughan got a cup of coffee with the Mariners this season but will now have to earn his way back onto the 40-man roster. Today, 12:31 pm
  • Justin Bruihl dealing with sore pitching arm
    Justin Bruihl could be removed from the Dodgers' NLCS roster because of a sore pitching arm.

    Advice: The left-hander felt some soreness in his arm while warming up in the bullpen during Thursday's Game 5. Manager Dave Roberts said the club will bring another pitcher with them to Atlanta in case Bruihl needs to be replaced, although he didn't specify who that was. Bruihl has made three scoreless appearances in the NLCS. Today, 11:14 am
  • David Price taking Joe Kelly's (biceps) spot
    David Price will take Joe Kelly's (biceps) spot on the Dodgers' NLCS roster.

    Advice: Manager Dave Roberts hinted that Price would be the choice after Thursday's Game 5 and he made it official Friday. Kelly will miss the rest of the season with a strained biceps. Price was on the team's NLDS roster but didn't pitch. Today, 11:10 am
    W, 10-3 vs Mil
  • Luke Bard outrighted to Triple-A
    Angels sent RHP Luke Bard outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: Bard had hip surgery back in April and missed the entire season. He's now off the 40-man roster. Today, 9:41 am
    W, 7-3 @Sea
  • James Hoyt outrighted by Angels
    Angels sent RHP James Hoyt outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

    Advice: He's now off the 40-man roster. Hoyt posted a 6.75 ERA over nine relief appearance with the Halos this season. Today, 9:40 am
    W, 7-3 @Sea
  • David Price likely to replace Kelly on NLCS roster
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters after Game 5 on Thursday that David Price is at the "top of the list" to replace Joe Kelly on the NLCS roster.

    Advice: Roberts said that the team is considering a few players, but that Price was "on the top of the list." Price wasn't included on the NLCS roster to begin the series, but there will be an opener after the Dodgers remove Joe Kelly, who is going to miss the rest of the season with a right biceps strain. The left-hander should be available for an inning or two on Saturday. Yesterday, 9:52 pm
    W, 10-3 vs Mil
  • Scherzer confirmed for Game 6 start against Braves
    Max Scherzer will start Game 6 against the Braves on Saturday.

    Advice: No surprise here, but always nice to get confirmation. Scherzer started Game 2 against Atlanta on Sunday; throwing 4 1/3 innings of two-run baseball before leaving and admitting that he was dealing with a tired arm. He's going on full rest, so Scherzer should be all systems go for a must-win game on Saturday against Atlanta at Truist Park. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Kelly will miss rest of season with biceps strain
    Joe Kelly will miss the rest of the season with a biceps strain.

    Advice: This according to Dave Roberts after the Game 5 win. Kelly was the opener on Thursday, and he went 2/3 of an inning while allowing a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman before he exited with a trainer on a 2-2 count to Adam Duvall. The right-hander has a $12 million club option for 2022 with a $4 million buyout, so it's very possible he's thrown his last pitch as a member of the Dodgers. Los Angeles will announce a replacement for him before Saturday's Game 6. Yesterday, 9:39 pm
    W, 10-3 vs Mil
  • Fried struggles, pulled in fifth against Dodgers
    Max Fried allowed five runs in 4 2/3 innings in Thursday's Game 5 loss in the NLCS to the Dodgers. 

    Advice: Fried eight hits and a pair of walks, and he struck out three. He was staked a 2-0 lead in the first, but he gave up two homers in the second: a solo shot to AJ Pollock and a two-run shot to Chris Taylor. Those two would combine for five homers, but the rest would come off an ineffective Atlanta bullpen. Fried wasn't exactly effective himself, however, giving up two more runs and having easily his worst start since the start of September. He could be an option for Atlanta in the bullpen in Game 7. Yesterday, 8:42 pm
    W, 5-0 vs NYM
  • Kelly leaves in first inning with biceps injury
    Joe Kelly has left Game 5 of the NLCS against the Braves on Thursday with a right biceps tightness.

    Advice: It was originally announced that the injury was related to the shoulder, but the Dodgers clarified that it was tightness in the biceps. Kelly allowed a two-run homer to Freddie Freeman, but was able to get an out and then exited in the middle of an at-bat against Adam Duvall with a trainer. Evan Phillips has come in to replace the right-hander. If the Dodgers are able to win on Thursday, it seems likely that Kelly will need to be replaced on the roster. Yesterday, 5:26 pm
    W, 10-3 vs Mil
  • Doyle sent outright to Triple-A by Rockies
    Rockies sent RHP Tommy Doyle outright to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Doyle was once considered one of the better relief prospects in baseball, but has seen his stock fall due to diminishing results; including a 9.84 ERA in 10 appearances for Double-A Hartford. Yesterday, 2:26 pm
    L, 4-5 @Ari
  • Rockies outright Almonte to Triple-A Albuquerque
    Rockies outrighted RHP Yency Almonte to Triple-A Albuquerque.

    Advice: Almonte is removed to clear room on the 40-man roster. The right-hander was an up-and-down option for the Rockies without fantasy significance, and isn't likely to have a role going forward. Yesterday, 2:23 pm
    L, 4-5 @Ari
  • Dodgers designate Edwin Uceta for assignment
    Dodgers designated RHP Edwin Uceta for assignment.

    Advice: This move opens up a spot for infielder Andy Burns, who is joining the Dodgers' NLCS roster in place of the injured Justin Turner. Uceta struggled to a 6.64 ERA, 1.53 WHIP, and 25/12 K/BB ratio over his first 20 1/3 major league innings this season, but he is only 23 years old. Yesterday, 2:00 pm

  • Joe Kelly to serve as Dodgers' opener in Game 5
    Joe Kelly will serve as the Dodgers' opener in NLCS Game 5 on Thursday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Kelly has allowed just one run through 4 2/3 innings (six relief appearances) in these 2021 playoffs, but he's yet to throw more than 17 pitches in a single outing and will probably only be asked to cover top of the first on Thursday at Dodger Stadium. The defending World Series champs are down 3-1 in the best-of-seven series. Yesterday, 1:36 pm
    W, 10-3 vs Mil
  • Max Fried will start NLCS Game 5 against Dodgers
    Max Fried will start Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday night against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Fried draws the starting assignment with the Braves holding a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Dodgers and looking to punch their ticket to the World Series for the first time since 1999. The 27-year-old left-hander yielded two runs over six innings in a no-decision in Game 1 of the NLCS last weekend. The Dodgers will counter with a bullpen game. Wednesday, 9:07 pm
    W, 5-0 vs NYM
  • Scherzer says his arm was 'dead' in NLCS Game 2
    Max Scherzer said following his start in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday that his arm was "dead" and he "could tell from warming up that it was still tired."

    Advice: Scherzer, who was making his third appearance in seven days, was pulled after throwing 79 pitches over 4 1/3 innings on Sunday. Alex Vesia came on to get two key outs and keep the game tied. While Scherzer wasn't at his best on Sunday, he doesn't expect the issue to keep him from making his next start. "I wasn't dealing with red flag injuries, it was just my arm was tired," said Scherzer. The Dodgers are down 2-0 to the Braves in the series, so it remains to be seen if he'll even get another chance. Monday, 9:00 am
  • Max Scherzer lifted in fifth inning of NLCS Game 2
    Max Scherzer pitched decently in a no-decision against the Braves in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night, allowing two runs on four hits over 4 1/3 innings.

    Advice: The right-hander racked up seven strikeouts while issuing one free pass on the night, throwing 52 of his 79 pitches for strikes. All of the damage done against him came on one mighty swing of the bat by Joc Pederson in the fourth inning. He was then lifted with a man on and a man out in the fifth inning. Scherzer now holds a 2.16 ERA and 0.90 WHIP on the postseason. He'd be on regular rest to start Game 6 of the series, but given his limited workload here, he could also be an option on short rest in Game 5 on Thursday. Sunday, 8:49 pm
  • Max Fried logs quality start in Game 1 no-decision
    Max Fried logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS on Saturday night, allowing two runs on eight hits over six frames.

    Advice: The 27-year-old southpaw punched out five on the night and didn't walk a batter, throwing 60 of his 81 pitches for strikes. He allowed an RBI single to Chris Taylor in the second inning then served up a solo blast to Will Smith in the fourth, but that was the extent of the damage done against him. Fried would be on regular rest to take the ball again on Game 5 in Atlanta on Thursday. He now boasts a 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP over 12 innings in his two postseason starts. Saturday, 8:30 pm
    W, 5-0 vs NYM
  • Max Scherzer will start NLCS Game 2 vs. Braves
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Max Scherzer will start Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night against the Braves.

    Advice: Roberts added that righty Walker Buehler will start Game 3 on Tuesday night, followed by lefty Julio UrĂ­as in Game 4 on Wednesday evening. Scherzer will get an extra day of rest after throwing 13 pitches on Thursday night to record his first career save in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Giants. The 37-year-old righty has allowed just two runs on six hits with a 16/4 K/BB ratio across 12 1/3 innings (three appearances, two starts) this postseason. Saturday, 1:22 pm
  • Scherzer gets save as Dodgers advance past Giants
    Max Scherzer picked up his first ever save Thursday as the Dodgers edged the Giants to advance to the NLCS.

    Advice: Scherzer pitched around a Justin Turner error, striking out Wilmer Flores on a tough check-swing call to end the game. It was just the second time in five career postseason appearance that he avoided allowing a run. He was pitching on two days' rest after pitching seven innings of one-run ball on Monday. Thursday, 9:39 pm
  • Max Scherzer 'highly unlikely' to pitch in Game 5
    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that it's "highly unlikely" Max Scherzer will be available out of the bullpen on Thursday night in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Giants.

    Advice: Everything remains on the table for the Dodgers in a winner-take-all elimination contest, but the plan appears to have Scherzer ready to start on Saturday night in Game 1 of the NLCS against the Braves. The 37-year-old workhorse threw a staggering 110 pitches over seven innings on Monday night in the Dodgers' Game 3 loss to the Giants. The doors seems to have been left ajar, but it seems unlikely Scherzer will make an appearance on Thursday night in Game 5, unless absolutely necessary. Wednesday, 3:24 pm
  • Max Scherzer takes loss in 1-0 game
    Max Scherzer pitched seven innings of one-run ball Monday in a loss to the Giants.

    Advice: Scherzer definitely did his part in spite of a shaky first inning, finishing with 10 strikeouts and just three hits allowed and one walk. He dropped to 7-6 in the postseason, even though he has a strong 3.21 ERA. Monday, 9:53 pm
