Jordan Zimmermann was strong into the seventh inning, allowing only one unearned run in 6 1/3 innings as the Nationals escaped with a win against the Mets on Wednesday.

The only run the right-hander allowed came in the fourth inning due to a fielding error by left fielder Kevin Frandsen. Zimmermann got into some trouble in the seventh, but Drew Storen bailed him out. Overall, Zimmermann allowed five hits, walked none, and struck out four. Now with a 2.92 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 130/21 K/BB ratio, he'll look ahead to the Diamondbacks in a home start next Monday.

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.

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.

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.
Oct 17 - 5:25 PM

Andre Ethier is starting in left field and batting fifth in Game 3 of the NLCS on Tuesday night against the Cubs.

It's the first start of the 2017 postseason for Ethier. Here is the full lineup for the Dodgers, who will try to go up 3-0 in the best-of-seven series against the Cubs and right-handed starter Kyle Hendricks: Chris Taylor SS, Cody Bellinger 1B, Justin Turner 3B, Yasiel Puig RF, Andre Ethier LF, Chase Utley 2B, Austin Barnes C, Joc Pederson CF, Yu Darvish SP.
Oct 17 - 5:10 PM

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.
Oct 17 - 3:53 PM

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.
