Player Notes

  • Bellinger named NLCS MVP for Game 7 heroics
    Cody Bellinger was named NLCS MVP after the Dodgers' Game 7 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

    Advice: Bellinger hit what was the game-winning homer in the second inning, a two-run jack off Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin that gave the Dodgers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. He hit just .200 in the series, with four RBI, three runs scored and two stolen bases, but the stakes and importance of his Game 7 homer clearly impressed the judges in choosing him as the series MVP. Bellinger and the Dodgers will advance to take on the Red Sox in the World Series, which begins Tuesday in Boston. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Kershaw pitches ninth to finish off Brewers
    Clayton Kershaw fired a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to close out the Dodgers' NLCS Game 7 win over the Brewers.

    Advice: Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said before the game that Kershaw was a near certainty to pitch at some point, and with a four-run lead he called on his ace to get the final three outs. Kershaw did it with the ease of a long-time closer, getting Travis Shaw to ground out before fanning Jesus Aguilar and Mike Moustakas to end it. The inning was such a breeze for Kershaw -- 15 pitches, nine strikes, little stress -- that it's a near lock that he'll turn around and start Tuesday's World Series Game 1 against the Red Sox in Boston. What a game that should be, too, with Kershaw squaring off against Chris Sale in a battle of two of the game's best. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:37 pm
  • Yelich's solo homer not enough for Brewers
    Christian Yelich hit a solo home run in the first inning of Saturday's NLCS Game 7 loss to the Dodgers.

    Advice: Yelich yanked a Walker Buehler fastball just over the right field wall -- and the straining glove of right fielder Yasiel Puig -- to energize the Miller Park crowd and give the Brewers an early lead. It would be one of the last things the crowd had to cheer about, as it was all Dodgers from that point on. For his part, Yelich finished the postseason with a pair of homers and just three RBI in 10 games, a disappointing output for the potential NL MVP. His relative struggles in the postseason don't diminish what was a breakout regular season for the 26-year-old, who will enter next spring as a likely first-round draft pick in fantasy leagues.

  • Buehler falls an out short of NLCS Game 7 win
    Walker Buehler allowed a lone run over 4 2/3 innings in a no-decision in Saturday's NLCS Game 7 victory over the Brewers.

    Advice: Christian Yelich turned around a Buehler fastball in the first inning to give the Brewers an early lead, but the young right-hander was nails from there on. He did scatter six hits, but Buehler struck out seven without issuing a walk in the outing. He was a batter away from qualifying for the win, but a Lorenzo Cain single with two outs in the fifth inning prompted manager Dave Roberts to call on Julio Urias to face Yelich. Through three postseason starts, the 24-year-old now has 22 strikeouts in 16 2/3 innings of work. He'll surely get at least one more as the Dodgers move on to face the Red Sox in the World Series, which begins Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Chacin lasts just two innings in Game 7 loss
    Jhoulys Chacin pitched two innings, allowing a two-run home run among three hits and a walk, in taking the loss in Saturday's Game 7 of the NLCS against the Dodgers.

    Advice: Chacin worked around a one-out walk to get through the first inning unharmed, but he was less fortunate in the second. After Manny Machado bunted for a hit, Cody Bellinger launched a two-run homer to deep right to give the Dodgers the lead. He'd allowed just one run in his previous three starts combined, accounting for 16 innings in those three starts, but in the win-or-go-home Game 7 manager Craig Counsell had to be proactive and yanked Chacin after those two innings. The 30-year-old enjoyed a tremendously successful year in 2018, going 15-8 with a 3.50 ERA in 35 regular season starts and winning both his postseason starts before Saturday. He'll be back with the Brewers in 2019 on a $6.75 million deal that now looks like a steal for the Milwaukee club. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm
