Clay Buchholz improved to 4-0 on the season by limiting the Royals to two runs over eight innings Saturday.

He struck out six and walked one in the victory. Buchholz held the Royals off the board until an RBI single by Jeff Francoeur in the fifth inning, snapping a streak of 22 scoreless innings. Just when it appeared that Buchholz would suffer the loss, Daniel Nava put the Red Sox ahead in the bottom of the eighth inning. Andrew Bailey then held on for a shaky save. Buchholz has been an excellent find for fantasy owners thus far, posting a 0.90 ERA and 29/11 K/BB ratio through four starts. He lines up for a favorable matchup against the Astros next week.

Ben Zobrist is starting in right field and batting eighth in Game 5 of the NLCS on Thursday night against the Dodgers.

Jason Heyward and Jon Jay are on the bench with Los Angeles throwing left-hander Clayton Kershaw. Here is the full lineup for the Cubs, who trail 3-1 in the best-of-seven series: Albert Almora CF, Kyle Schwarber LF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Addison Russell SS, Javier Baez 2B, Ben Zobrist RF, Jose Quintana SP.

Michael Brantley underwent surgery Wednesday to stabilize the ligaments in his right ankle.

The rehabilitation for such a procedure typically lasts 4-5 months, which could mean Brantley won't be able to participate in much of spring training and might be in danger of missing the start of the 2018 season. Cleveland holds an $11 million club option (or $1 million buyout) on the 30-year-old outfielder. He batted .299/.357/.444 with nine home runs and 52 RBI in 90 games this summer.

Javier Baez went 2-for-3 with two solo blasts in a 3-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

Both of the blasts came off of Alex Wood, one in the second and one in the fifth. Baez has struggled to hit for average in this postseason, but he's now slugging .889 for this series, which is good. With his bat speed, he can turn any pitch on any part of the plate out of the park. Baez and the Cubs will look to stay alive and take the series to Los Angeles in Game 5 on Thursday.

Masahiro Tanaka was brilliant on Wednesday, giving up just three hits in seven shutout innings of a 5-0 win over the Astros in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Tanaka was good in Game 1, but that performance pales in comparison to his effort on Wednesday. The only time Houston challenged him was when they had runners on first-and-second with one out in the fifth, but he struck out George Springer and Josh Reddick to end the threat. Long-story-short, Tanaka has pitched like the ace the Yankees paid for this postseason. Game Six will be played in Houston on Friday.
Oct 18 - 8:34 PM

Andre Ethier is back in the Dodgers' lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Per Eric Stephen on Twitter, it's the first time that Ethier has started back-to-back games in the 2017 calendar. The full lineup goes Chris Taylor SS Cody Bellinger 1B Justin Turner 3B Yasiel Puig RF Andre Ethier LF Curtis Granderson CF Yasmani Grandal C Chase Utley 2B and Alex Wood on the mound.

Ben Zobrist is out of the lineup for Game 4 of the NLCS against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Jayson Heyward is also out of the lineup for the Cubs against southpaw Alex Wood for the Dodgers. The Cubs will go with Albert Almora CF, Kyle Schwarber LF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Addison Russell SS, Javy Baez 2B, Jon Jay RF, and Jake Arrieta on the mound.

Former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire interviewed for the Red Sox managerial opening on Wednesday.

Gardenhire spent 2017 as the bench coach for the Diamondbacks. He joins Alex Cora and former Tigers' manager Brad Ausmus as candidates who have interviewed for the position. President of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski has said he does not have a timetable for when he'll make a decision on the job.

Tony La Russa and the Diamondbacks have officially parted ways.

The writing was on the wall last winter when the Diamondbacks restructured their front office and demoted La Russa from chief baseball officer to "chief baseball analyst and advisor." He had a nearly four-year run in Arizona, after spending over three decades as a manager of the White Sox (1979-1986), Athletics (1986-1995), and Cardinals (1996-2011). "I am grateful to everyone in the Arizona Diamondbacks organization for the opportunity to complete my baseball education," La Russa said in a statement Wednesday.

MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports that the Twins will not exercise their $6.5 million club option on left-handed reliever Glen Perkins.

Perkins will get a $750,000 buyout instead. It was a no-brainer decision for the Twins after the 34-year-old southpaw surrendered six earned runs on five walks and eight hits over just 5 2/3 innings this season. He's battled serious shoulder problems for the past couple of years and there is talk that he might retire.
Oct 18 - 2:12 PM

Brian McCann will start at catcher and bat ninth in Game 5 of the ALCS on Wednesday against the Yankees.

It's the same exact starting lineup the Astros deployed in Game 4 of the ALCS: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Alex Bregman 3B, Carlos Beltran DH, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Brian McCann C. Dallas Keuchel will be on the mound for Houston, facing off against Yankees right-hander Masahiro Tanaka.
Oct 18 - 2:01 PM

Chase Headley is serving as the Yankees' DH and batting ninth in Game 5 of the ALCS on Wednesday against the Astros.

Matt Holliday started at DH in Game 1 of the ALCS against Dallas Keuchel, who is also pitching Game 5 for the Astros, but Headley will get the nod here. The full lineup for New York: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Gary Sanchez C, Didi Gregorius SS, Aaron Hicks CF, Starlin Castro 2B, Greg Bird 1B, Todd Frazier 3B, Chase Headley DH. Masahiro Tanaka will be on the mound.
