Andrew McCutchen was held out of the Pirates' lineup Saturday due to a "gimpy" right ankle.

The Pirates aren't revealing any details yet about the severity of the ankle injury. McCutchen went 1-for-4 in the Bucs' defeat of the Cardinals on Friday night and is batting .319 with a stellar .938 OPS in 35 games this year. Losing him to the 15-day disabled list would obviously be a massive blow for the Bucs, who are in fourth place in the National League Central.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Nationals have asked the Astros' permission to interview Alex Cora after the conclusion of the ALCS.

Cora has already interviewed with the Tigers and the Red Sox and Astros' manager A.J. Hinch seems to fully support the idea of Cora getting his own managerial gig. The Nationals canned Dusty Baker in a surprising move on Friday, leaving one of the most talented teams in the league with a major vacancy at the helm.

Justin Verlander struck out eight batters while firing seven shutout frames to beat the Yankees 7-1 in Game 6 of the ALCS on Friday.

He was on top of his game and didn't give the Yankees any chance to do much damage all night. He scattered five hits -- all singles -- issued one walk and hit one batter. It was his second win in the series to go with a 0.56 ERA and 21 strikeouts in 16 innings. The Astros gave up a ton of money and a load of prospect talent to get Verlander on September 1st but his performance in the playoffs has made it all worthwhile. He is 4-0 with a 0.93 ERA in 24 2/3 post-season innings.

Jose Altuve went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and three RBI in Friday's ALCS Game 6 win over the Yankees.

His two-RBI single in the fifth inning gave his team a 3-0 lead and knocked opposing starter Luis Severino out of the game. He tacked on a solo home run off reliever David Robertson leading off the bottom of the eighth inning. The Astros scored four runs in the frame to put the game on ice. It was the MVP candidate's first home run of the championship series and fourth of the post-season. The series wraps up tomorrow with the winner advancing to the World Series.

Chase Headley is starting in the designated hitter spot and batting ninth for the Yankees in Friday's ALCS Game 6 versus the Astros.

Headley hasn't done much this postseason, but he had three hits in Game 5, earning another start in the DH spot Friday. The Yankees' full lineup is as follows: Brett Gardner LF, Aaron Judge RF, Didi Gregorius SS, Gary Sanchez C, Greg Bird 1B, Starlin Castro 2B, Aaron Hicks CF, Todd Frazier 3B, Headley DH.

Evan Gattis is starting in the designated hitter spot and batting eighth for the Astros in ALCS Game 6 on Friday versus the Yankees.

Carlos Beltran has started four of the five games so far this series in the DH spot, but it will be Gattis in there Friday against right-hander Luis Severino. The Astros' full lineup looks like this: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Alex Bregman 3B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Gattis DH, Brian McCann C.

Daniel Murphy underwent a debridement and microfracture surgery on Friday to repair damage to the articular cartilage in his right knee.

Murphy tore the MCL in the same knee many years ago but this is the first we've heard of any knee issues since then. The Nationals did not reveal a timetable for his return, only saying that he will rehab "throughout the offseason." It's a significant operation, so it's certainly possible that Murphy will be limited in spring training.

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.

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.
