The Tigers on Friday announced the hiring of Ron Gardenhire as their new manager.

Gardenhire has received a three-year contract. The former Twins skipper went 1,068-1,039 in 13 seasons in Minnesota and this past season served as the Diamondbacks' bench coach. It'll be a tough gig for the soon-to-be 60-year-old, as the Tigers are facing a rebuilding effort.

The Nationals will not bring back manager Dusty Baker for the 2018 season.

The Nats won back-to-back National League East titles under Baker, but they were eliminated in Game 5 of the NLDS both seasons. That, and the ownership group reportedly being unhappy when Baker complained at midseason that he hadn't been given a contract extension, appears to have cost the skipper his job. The Nationals will be hiring their seventh manager in 14 seasons. No manager has lasted more than 2 1/2 years on the job.

Kiké Hernandez hit three homers and drove in seven runs Thursday as the Dodgers crushed the Cubs 11-1 to win Game 5 of the NLCS and advance to the World Series.

Hernandez had a solo homer in the second, a grand slam to break the game open in the third and then a two-run shot to punctuate his night in the ninth. He became the first player to hit three homers in a postseason game since... well, since Jose Altuve two weeks ago against the Red Sox. However, he's just the fifth player ever to knock in seven runs and the first National Leaguer ever. The last American Leaguer was Boston's Troy O'Leary in the 1999 ALDS. He's the first player with three homers and seven RBI in a postseason game.

The Tigers have decided they want Ron Gardenhire as their next manager, The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal reports.

Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports that Gardenhire will receive a three-year deal. Gardenhire was interviewed for the Red Sox job, but it's expected that the nod there will go to Alex Cora. Assuming that's how it works out, then Gardenhire will return to the AL Central with the Tigers. The soon-to-be 60-year-old was 1,068-1,039 in 13 seasons with the Twins before being let go three years ago.

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.

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.
