Zack Cozart left Wednesday's game against the Angels with a left shoulder strain.

Cozart suffered the injury while making a diving stop on the field in the third inning, and he was replaced by Nolan Fontana in the field. He'll likely undergo more testing on the shoulder, and then be reevaluated. It's very likely that Cozart will at least miss a game or two, and a trip to the disabled list is a strong possibility as well. Another blow for the Los Angeles lineup.

Jesus Aguilar went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and three RBI on Friday, propelling the Brewers to a 7-2 victory over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS and forcing a do-or-die Game 7 on Saturday.

The Dodgers took an early lead in this one on a leadoff homer from David Freese, but Aguilar answered the bell in the bottom half of the first, delivering a two-run double off of Hyun-Jin Ryu to put the Brewers ahead to stay. He capped off the scoring in the game with an RBI single in the eighth inning. With the three-hit attack, Aguilar is now hitting .242/.306/.515 with two homers and five RBI in nine games this postseason.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that David Bell "would appear to be the favorite" for the Reds' manager job after Joe Girardi withdrew his name from consideration.

Rosenthal says that Girardi was the Reds' "top choice" for the gig, but the former Yankees manager has decided to remain in an analyst role at MLB Network for the time being. Bell is a finalist for the Rangers and Blue Jays jobs, as well, and the Giants are also reportedly considering him for their general manager post, so it wouldn't appear to be a slam dunk that he's headed to Cincinnati.

Joe Musgrove underwent surgery to repair his right abdominal wall and help a pelvic stress reaction heal.

Musgrove's season ended prematurely due to the injury and the decision was eventually made to have an operation. He's expected to need six weeks of rehab time, with the Pirates saying the right-hander "will be on or close to a regular schedule for 2019 spring training."

David Freese is starting at first base and batting leadoff for the Dodgers in Friday's NLCS Game 6 against the Brewers.

Freese has batted leadoff just three times in his career prior to this one. He's unlikely to get a full game in, as the Dodgers figure to do their normal thing and have multiple substitutions once the Brewers go to a righty in their bullpen. The Dodgers' full lineup looks like this: Freese 1B, Max Muncy 2B, Justin Turner 3B, Manny Machado SS, Cody Bellinger CF, Chris Taylor LF, Yasiel Puig RF, Austin Barnes C, Hyun-Jin Ryu P.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said in an interview on WEEI on Friday that Chris Sale (illness) will start Game 1 of the World Series next Tuesday.

Sale had to be pushed back from a scheduled start in Game 5 of the ALCS due to a stomach illness that sent him to the hospital, but he appears to be recovered. The left-hander will be pitching on nine days' rest, as he last started in Game 1 of the ALCS on October 13. Cora added that David Price would "probably" start Game 2, but he hasn't made any firm plans beyond his Game 1 starter yet.

Jackie Bradley Jr. was named MVP of the 2018 ALCS.

Bradley Jr. is a deserving winner, hitting a pair of homers -- including a grand slam in Game 3 -- in the series and also drawing four walks. His average is just .200 in this postseason, but his .400 on-base percentage and .667 slugging mark -- along with his excellent defense in center -- is more indicative of how good he's been in October.

Rafael Devers hit a three-run homer in a 4-1 victory over the Astros on Thursday in Game 5 in the ALCS.

The homer was a big one, as it came with the Red Sox holding just a 1-0 lead in the sixth inning off of Justin Verlander to extend the Boston lead to 4-0. It was an excellent series for the soon-to-be 22-year-old with a .385/.467/.615 line over the five games. Don't be surprised if he gets starts at third in the World Series even if Eduardo Nunez is healthy enough to play.

David Price hurled six shutout innings while allowing just three hits and striking out nine in a 4-1 victory over the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday.

Narratives were made to be broken. After two shaky postseason starts -- and many more efforts that haven’t accurately reflected Price’s talent -- Price was absolutely brilliant on Thursday. His change-up was an out pitch, and for the overwhelming majority of the game, the former Cy Young winner was able to get ahead of the Houston lineup while limiting hard contact. This was a wonderful reminder of how dominant Price has been in his career at times. If Boston gets this version of Price in the World Series, the Dodgers or Brewers are in trouble. He’ll likely start Game 2 of the Fall Classic in Fenway Park.
Oct 18 - 11:44 PM

Mitch Moreland is back in the lineup at first base and hitting fifth on Thursday against the Astros in Game 5 of the ALCS.

Moreland gets the start at first base against right-hander Justin Verlander, with Steve Pearce heading to the bench. It's his first start in 11 days after dealing with a hamstring injury. Ian Kinsler takes over at second for Brock Holt. The rest of the lineup stays the same against the Astros, as the Red Sox look to clinch a trip to the World Series, and is as follows: Mookie Betts RF, Andrew Benintendi LF, J.D. Martinez DH, Xander Bogaerts SS, Moreland 1B, Kinsler 2B, Rafael Devers 3B, Christian Vazquez C, Jackie Bradley CF, and David Price on the mound.
Oct 18 - 4:12 PM

Jake Marisnick is starting in center field and hitting ninth on Thursday for Game 5 of the ALCS against the Red Sox.

Marisnick will get the start in center, with George Springer moving over to right and Tony Kemp handling left. Josh Reddick will start off on the bench, but likely will likely get a plate appearance if/when Boston turns to a right-hander and removes David Price. The Astros are also moving Carlos Correa to the cleanup spot as they look to avoid elimination. The full lineup goes: Alex Bregman 3B, Springer, RF, Jose Altuve DH, Carlos Correa SS, Yuli Gurriel 1B, Marwin Gonzalez 2B, Kemp LF, Martin Maldonado C, Marisnick CF and Justin Verlander as the starting pitcher.

Matt Chapman underwent surgery on his left thumb Thursday.

Per the Athletics' press release: "Dr. Steven Shin performed an ulnar sided sesamoid bone excision along the left thumb at the Cedars-Sinai Kerlan-Jobe Institute in Los Angeles. Dr. Shin was pleased with the outcome of the surgery and anticipates Matt to make a full recovery prior to the start of spring training." Chapman battled thumb and wrist issues at various points this season, twice receiving cortisone injections, but the 25-year-old budding star still managed a strong .864 OPS with 24 home runs and 42 doubles in 145 games while also playing elite-level defense at third base.
