According to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Indians are strongly considering entering the 2019 season with Yandy Diaz as their starting third baseman.

Pluto speculates that Michael Brantley, a free agent this winter, will not be brought back by the Tribe, and that Jason Kipnis will move to left field to fill that void. That would leave second base open for Jose Ramirez and the hot corner open for Diaz on an everyday basis. He saw limited action during the 2018 season, but hit a respectable .312/.375/.422 with one homer, 15 RBI and a 19/11 K/BB ratio in 120 plate appearances. With very little to offer in terms of power and speed, Diaz won't be an attractive commodity in fantasy leagues, even if he does land the starting gig at third base.

Sandy Leon is likely to serve as the Red Sox' starting catcher for Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

While Christian Vazquez has functioned as the team's primary backstop recently, Leon served as Chris Sale's catcher for most of the season, and that's likely to remain the case in the World Series as well. The 29-year-old is hitless in seven at-bats this postseason and hit a cringe-inducing .177/.232/.279 during the regular season.

Steven Wright (knee) threw a simulated game on Sunday without any issues.

How his knee responds to Sunday's session will determine Wright's availability for the World Series. The knuckleballer has been on the shelf since complaining of knee pain after Game 1 of the ALDS.

John Tomase of WEEI.com reports that the stomach issue that caused Chris Sale to miss his start in Game 5 of the ALCS was not due to a problem with his belly button ring.

Sale said Saturday that irritation from a belly button ring was the culprit, but it appears that he was just having a little fun with the media. The left-hander is over the stomach problem that sent him to the hospital and is on track to start Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

The Angels on Sunday announced the hiring of Brad Ausmus as their new manager.

Ausmus spent this season in the Angels' front office as a special assistant to general manager Billy Eppler. Before that he managed the Tigers for four seasons, winning 90 games in his first campaign but getting fired after a 64-98 showing in 2017. Ausmus seemingly beat out Eric Chavez -- who was also a special assistant to Eppler before finishing the year as the manager at Triple-A Salt Lake -- for the job. MLB.com's Maria I. Guardado says that Ausmus has been given a three-year contract.

Mookie Betts worked out at second base again on Sunday, practicing double play feeds.

Betts was getting some pointers from Dustin Pedroia. Whether Betts ultimately sees some time at second base in Los Angeles during the World Series remains to be seen, but it's clear that Red Sox manager Alex Cora is seriously considering it. Working in Betts' favor as an option at second is the Red Sox' staff induces a good number of flyballs and the Dodgers strike out a lot. Still, asking the likely AL MVP to handle a position he hasn't started at in four years would be quite a gamble.
