Mets placed RHP Shaun Marcum on the 15-day disabled list with thoracic outlet syndrome.

Marcum will have surgery on Monday to repair an artery blockage that was causing numbness in his pitching hand. He could resume throwing again in two months, but his season is over. The veteran right-hander will be a free agent this offseason.

Ben Zobrist is batting leadoff for the Cubs in Game 3 of the NLCS on Tuesday against the Dodgers.

It's a somewhat new-look lineup for the Cubs, who are down 0-2 in the best-of-seven series and facing right-hander Yu Darvish on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field: Ben Zobrist 2B, Kyle Schwarber LF, Kris Bryant 3B, Anthony Rizzo 1B, Willson Contreras C, Jon Jay CF, Addison Russell SS, Jason Heyward RF, Kyle Hendricks SP.

Hanley Ramirez is expected to be ready for the start of next season after undergoing a left shoulder arthroscopy and debridement Tuesday.

Ramirez revealed the news of his operation himself on Twitter and the Red Sox have now provided more details on the procedure. The designated hitter has battled nagging shoulder issues for a while now and is coming off a disappointing 2017 campaign that saw him bat only .242/.320/.429 with 23 homers. He'll turn 34 years old in December.

Eduardo Rodriguez won't return to pitching for approximately six months after having a right knee patellofemoral ligament reconstruction on Tuesday.

Rodriguez has been plagued by a chronic knee problem off and on for the last four years. Obviously, he's going to get a late start to the 2018 season after this procedure. How much time he'll spend on the disabled list remains to be seen. Rodriguez posted a 4.19 ERA and 150/50 K/BB ratio over 137 1/3 innings this year.

Brian McCann is starting at catcher and batting ninth for the Astros in Tuesday's ALCS Game 4 versus the Yankees.

Evan Gattis got the start behind the plate in Game 3, but it's McCann back in there Tuesday. The Astros also have Carlos Beltran in the designated hitter spot. Their full batting order looks like this: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Alex Bregman 3B, Beltran DH, Marwin Gonzalez LF, McCann C.

Austin Romine is starting at catcher and batting ninth for the Yankees in Tuesday's ALCS Game 4 versus the Astros.

Gary Sanchez, who is in the midst of a 0-for-16 skid, is in the designated hitter spot. That means Jacoby Ellsbury, Chase Headley and Matt Holliday are all on the bench. The Yankees' full lineup is as follows: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Didi Gregorius SS, Sanchez DH, Greg Bird 1B, Starlin Castro 2B, Aaron Hicks CF, Todd Frazier 3B, Romine C.

CC Sabathia came up big for the Yankees on Monday, spinning six shutout frames in an 8-1 ALCS Game 3 victory over the Astros.

Sabathia struck out nine while yielding just two runs over 4 1/3 innings in the Yanks’ ALDS Game 5 clincher over the Indians, but he gave the Bombers an even bigger boost in this one. The left-hander walked four batters, but he struck out five and yielded a mere three hits on the night, with none of them going for extra bases. It’s the first time since Pedro Martinez in 2009 that a pitcher 37 years or older went at least six shutout innings in a postseason start. Sabathia would be in line to start Game 7 for the Yankees, should the series get there.

Aaron Judge clubbed a three-run homer in the Yankees' ALCS Game 3 victory over the Astros on Monday.

Judge entered the night hitting just .129/.270/.258 with 19 strikeouts this postseason and he hadn't gone deep since the Wild Card Game versus the Twins. He struck out on three pitches in his first plate appearance, but he walked in the third inning and in the fourth turned around a Will Harris fastball, lining it just over the left-field wall. Judge also had a pair of nice defensive plays, including one where he made a jumping catch before slamming into the outfield wall.

Lance McCullers will start for the Astros in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Yankees on Tuesday.

McCullers gets the call over Brad Peacock, who struggled in his ALDS outing versus the Red Sox. Of course, McCullers has struggled himself for a while now, posting an 8.53 ERA over his final seven starts of the season. That said, he obviously has the stuff to go out and shut the Yankees down if he's on, and manager A.J. Hinch has decided to bet on the upside.

Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports that former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus interviewed for the Red Sox' manager job on Monday.

Ausmus, of course, is familiar with Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski, having worked under him in Detroit. The former major league catcher went 314-332 in four years as the Tigers' skipper. Astros bench coach Alex Cora is viewed as the favorite to land the Red Sox' job at this point.

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that Mets hitting coach Kevin Long is "regarded as the favorite" at this juncture for the team's managerial opening.

It's not a surprise since he's the only one who has interviewed so far. The process figures to be fluid, with Astros bench coach Alex Cora, White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing and former Nationals and Indians skipper Manny Acta all interviewing for the job this week. Long has been a hitting coach in the majors since 2007 with the Yankees and then the Mets and had some minor league managerial experience prior to that.

Luis Severino was not sent for further testing and is in line to start a potential Game 6 of the ALCS.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi mentioned that he had some concern about Severino's right shoulder when he abruptly lifted the pitcher from his Game 2 start after just four innings. The pitcher was also hit on the left wrist by a comebacker in the game. However, Severino said after the contest that he was fine and it appears there's nothing to worry about injury-wise here.
