According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, reliever Joakim Soria is seeking a multi-year contract.

Soria is coming back from Tommy John elbow surgery and might not be ready to pitch until May or June, so he will have a difficult time getting a worthwhile multi-year pact. If that turns out to be the case, Rosenthal believes the right-hander might wind up returning to the Royals. Soria's agent says his client would be willing to pitch as a setup man for the Yankees but would want to be a closer anywhere else.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Yankees "have begun the process of constructing a new contract" for general manager Brian Cashman.

Cashman has been New York's general manager for the past 17 seasons and his current contract is set to expire at the end of the month. The Yankees missed the playoffs for the second straight year despite spending big money last winter, but Olney hears that Cashman's relationship with the organization and the Steinbrenners remains strong.

Max Scherzer will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Orioles on Thursday.

Scherzer, who went 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA during the regular season, will be opposed by Chris Tillman. Justin Verlander will start Game 2 for the Tigers while David Price will go in Game 3. Rick Porcello would start a potential Game 4.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Monday that he expects Alex Rodriguez to be the team's third baseman next season.

Girardi did note that A-Rod isn't guaranteed the starting job at the hot corner because the club needs "to see where he is physically at." But, the skipper "absolutely" expects Rodriguez to be part of the team and thinks he'll be the regular third baseman as long as he's healthy. A-Rod, of course, missed all of this season after being suspended because of his ties with Biogenesis. Some had speculated that the Yanks might simply just cut him loose, but it appears they're not willing to just eat the $61 million A-Rod has remaining on his contract.

The Astros officially introduced A.J. Hinch as their new manager at a press conference Monday.

Hinch, who most recently served as vice president and assistant general manager with the Padres, previously managed the Diamondbacks during part of the 2009 and 2010 seasons, going 89-123. He interviewed with the Astros after the 2012 season before the team picked Bo Porter but this time beat out nine other candidates for the job. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says Hinch is "well-versed with the team’s emphasis on statistical analysis."

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Monday that the club is interested in discussing a contract extension with Yoenis Cespedes this offseason.

"It is just a conversation that we will have at the right time," Cherington said. "There is no specific date we'll plan on having that, but so far, we think the relationship is off to a good start." Cespedes, who will make $10.5 million in 2015 in his final season before free agency, said on Saturday that he's "still not sure if I want to sign an extension or if I want to go to free agency." He batted .269/.296/.423 with five homers and 33 RBI over 51 games for Boston this season and hit .260/.301/.450 with 22 bombs and a career-high 100 RBI overall between the A's and Red Sox.

Trevor Plouffe underwent surgery Monday to repair a fractured left forearm.

Plouffe injured his forearm last Wednesday and was told by one doctor that surgery wasn't necessary, but he apparently went through with the procedure after getting a second opinion. Either way, it's expected that he'll be ready for spring training.

Matt Shoemaker (oblique) played catch Monday without issue and will throw another bullpen session Tuesday.

The hope is that Shoemaker will be ready to start for the Angels in Game 3 of the ALDS on October 5. He's been out since September 16 with an oblique strain. Anaheim will go with Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson in the first two games of the Division Series.

Josh Hamilton (shoulder) went through a full workout on Monday afternoon without issue.

Hamilton took batting practice, threw long toss, and ran the bases. He will repeat that routine on Tuesday and is then expected to face live pitching on Wednesday. The Angels are hoping he'll be close to full health by Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.

According to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal, the Red Sox have not decided whether they'll tender a qualifying offer to free agent Koji Uehara.

The one-year qualifying offer for this winter's free agent crop is expected to be worth around $15.1 million. That's a hefty price for any reliever and Uehara stumbled down the stretch this season. He also turns 40 years old next April. Boston may be better off trying to negotiate a new deal with him on the open market.
Sep 29 - 3:16 PM

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said Monday that "we've done everything we can" for Allen Craig's foot.

"No further testing needed," added Cherington. Craig wound up hitting just .128/.234/.191 in 107 plate appearances after the trade that sent he and Joe Kelly to the Red Sox for starter John Lackey. Maybe Craig will be rebound after a full offseason of rest, but this Lisfranc injury dates back to late 2013 and he has been a different player since it happened. Boston owes him $26.5 million in guaranteed money through 2017.

Patrick Reusse of 1500 ESPN reports that the Twins have fired manager Ron Gardenhire.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick was first to imply that Gardenhire was likely finished, and LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune now adds that the entire coaching staff has been let go. It's what typically happens after four consecutive seasons of 90-plus losses. Gardenhire guided the Twins to American League Central championships in four of his first five years on the job -- he was hired in 2002 -- but the club is now in the middle of a forced rebuild and they'll find a new skipper to lead the rapidly-changing roster. Gardenhire managed the Twins for 13 seasons.
