Miguel Cabrera (hamstring) is in the starting lineup Monday against the White Sox.

Cabrera left Sunday's game against the Red Sox with left hamstring tightness, but it's not enough to keep him out of the lineup. Fantasy owners will have to hope that it doesn't become a nagging issue.

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.

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.

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.

Willson Contreras (forearm) is expected to be ready for Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday.

Contreras made an early exit from Tuesday's Game 3 loss to the Dodgers after taking a Mike Montgomery pitch off his forearm in the top of the eighth inning. Barring significant overnight swelling, the 25-year-old catcher should be near the heart of the Cubs' order on Wednesday with the season on the line. Los Angeles leads 3-0 in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

Yu Darvish worked 6 1/3 innings of one-run ball Tuesday as the Dodgers beat the Cubs in Game 3 of the NLCS.

Darvish gave up an opposite-field solo homer to Kyle Schwarber in the bottom of the first inning but settled in nicely from there, needing just 81 total pitches to secure 19 outs. He struck out seven and issued only one walk. Darvish also tallied his first career postseason RBI on a bases-loaded walk in the top of the sixth. That manager Dave Roberts let the longtime American Leaguer hit for himself in that spot is indicative of how sharp he looked. Darvish boasts a 1.59 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and 14/1 K/BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings (two starts) this postseason and Los Angeles leads 3-0 in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series.

Chris Taylor hit a solo homer and an RBI triple Tuesday in the Dodgers' 6-1 NLCS Game 3 defeat of the Cubs.

Chicago struck first on a Kyle Schwarber solo shot in the bottom of the first, but Andre Ethier answered with a solo blast of his own in the top of the second and then Taylor went to work, giving Los Angeles the lead and a cushion with his dinger in the third and triple in the fifth. The versatile 27-year-old boasts a 1.019 OPS with two home runs, four RBI, and six runs scored through six postseason games. And the Dodgers are now one win away from sweeping the Cubs in the National League Championship Series and advancing to their first World Series since 1988.
Oct 18 - 12:41 AM

Aaron Judge went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and an RBI double as the Yankees beat the Astros 6-4 in Game 4 of the ALCS on Tuesday night in the Bronx.

Astros starter Lance McCullers pitched dominantly for the first six innings, but Judge led off the bottom of the seventh with a towering blast over the center field wall to get the Yankees on the board. Judge then banged a line drive off a fan's hand in left field to score Jacoby Ellsbury in the Yankees' four-run bottom of the eighth. The American League Championship Series is all tied up at 2-2.

Thomas Harding of MLB.com writes that the Rockies are "expected" to pursue a reunion with impending free agent catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

Lucroy told reporters in early September that he would "absolutely" be interested in returning to Colorado, so there's some mutual affection here. The veteran backstop finished strong after the July 30 trade that sent him from the Rangers to the Rockies, slashing .310/.429/.437 over his final 46 games. He hit just .242/.297/.338 over his first 77 games this season with Texas.

Corey Seager (back) worked out in the weight room on Tuesday.

And he might begin playing catch on Wednesday. Seager was left off the Dodgers' roster for the National League Championship Series, but the young shortstop is aiming to return for the World Series if Los Angeles can finish off the Cubs and advance. He injured his back in Game 3 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks.
Oct 17 - 7:54 PM

According to Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the Rangers have informed Mike Napoli that they will not exercise his $11 million club option for 2018.

Napoli will receive a $2.5 million buyout and hit free agency. The soon-to-be 36-year-old batted just .193 with a .285 on-base percentage in 124 games this season with Texas, though he did slug 29 home runs. He'll likely struggle to find lucrative offers on a market that will be flush with DH/1B types.
