Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune was told by a source that Carlos Zambrano may sign with a team in Japan or Taiwan if he can't find a major league deal.

There hasn't been much chatter about Zambrano this winter after he posted a 4.49 ERA and 95/75 K/BB ratio over 132 1/3 innings with the Marlins in 2012. Perhaps he'll find a spot if there's an injury somewhere, but adding in his previous baggage, getting a guaranteed deal in MLB appears doubtful right now.

Jason Vargas will start Game 1 of the ALDS against the Angels on Thursday.

Vargas, who pitched for the Angels in 2013, had a 3.71 ERA across 30 starts this season with Kansas City. Danny Duffy was the likely alternative for the Game 1 assignment. The rest of the rotation for the series has yet to be announced.

Russell Martin (groin) is in the Pirates' starting lineup for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Giants.

Martin missed the Pirates' final two regular season game after aggravating a lingering groin injury, but he's not going to miss Wednesday's do-or-die contest. The full lineup: Josh Harrison 3B, Jordy Mercer SS, Andrew McCutchen CF, Martin C, Starling Marte LF, Neil Walker 2B, Gaby Sanchez 1B, Travis Snider RF, Edinson Volquez SP.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have added Joe McEwing to their list of managerial candidates.

McEwing has been the White Sox third base coach for the past three seasons and has strong ties to Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa. Sandy Alomar, Jr., Jim Tracy, Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin, and Turner Ward are among the other names Arizona is considering to replace Kirk Gibson.

Rajai Davis (groin) is feeling improvement, but still needs to do more baseball work before the Tigers decide on his status for the ALDS against the Orioles.

Davis exited Saturday's game with a Grade 1 groin strain and has been receiving daily treatment since, but the real test will be doing baseball activities. The Tigers could still put him on the roster even if he's not a full-go for Game 1. A final decision should come on Thursday.

Jose Fernandez threw Wednesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery.

Fernandez, who had Tommy John surgery in mid-May, made 25 throws from a distance of 30 feet. It's just the first step in a long process, which will likely keep him sidelined until around midseason in 2015.
Oct 1 - 2:15 PM

Michael Wacha will pitch out of the Cardinals' bullpen during the NLDS against the Dodgers.

It's hard to disagree with this decision, as Wacha didn't show enough in September to secure a spot in the NLDS rotation. Adam Wainwright will start Game 1 and will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey, and (if necessary) Shelby Miller. Wacha dominated Los Angeles last October en route to winning NLCS MVP, but he dealt with a shoulder injury for much of this season.
Oct 1 - 2:06 PM

Lyle Overbay said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Wednesday that he's "99.9 percent sure" that he'll retire.

Overbay appeared in 121 games with the Brewers this season while batting just .233/.328/.333 with four home runs and 28 RBI. Assuming he's done, the 37-year-old will finish his career with a .266 batting average to go along with 1,355 hits, 151 home runs and 675 RBI over 14 seasons.

Ben Revere underwent right ankle surgery this week.

Revere had screws removed from the ankle and will be in a boot for two weeks. However, he should be fine by the time spring training rolls around. The 26-year-old outfielder batted .306/.325/.361 over 151 games this season while finishing fourth in the majors with 49 steals.
Oct 1 - 12:08 PM

Carlos Ruiz underwent left shoulder surgery this week.

Ruiz recently said that he has been playing through left shoulder soreness all season, so he finally got the issue addressed. The good news is that he is expected to be ready for spring training. The 35-year-old batted .252/.347/.370 with six home runs and 31 RBI over 110 games this season. He's owed $8.5 million in each of the next two season and his contract includes a $4.5 million club option for 2017 or a $500,000 buyout.
Oct 1 - 12:05 PM

Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports that Sandy Alomar, Jr. and Jim Tracy are candidates for the Diamondbacks' managerial vacancy.

Alomar has five spent seasons with the Indians as the first base, third base and bench coach. Tracy has previously managed with the Dodgers, Pirates, and Rockies. Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish adds that Jay Bell, Andy Green, Phil Nevin, and Turner Ward are other candidates for the job. More figure to be added to the list.
Oct 1 - 12:00 PM

Taijuan Walker will pitch 30 innings in the Arizona Fall League.

Walker missed some time this season with a shoulder injury, so the Mariners want to get him some more innings going into the offseason. The 22-year-old posted a 2.61 ERA and 34/18 K/BB ratio in 38 innings across five starts and three relief appearances in the majors this year and should be a popular late-round flier in mixed leagues in 2015.
