Cody Bellinger was named NLCS MVP after the Dodgers' Game 7 win over the Brewers on Saturday.

Bellinger hit what was the game-winning homer in the second inning, a two-run jack off Brewers starter Jhoulys Chacin that gave the Dodgers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. He hit just .200 in the series, with four RBI, three runs scored and two stolen bases, but the stakes and importance of his Game 7 homer clearly impressed the judges in choosing him as the series MVP. Bellinger and the Dodgers will advance to take on the Red Sox in the World Series, which begins Tuesday in Boston.

Yasiel Puig went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run to lead the Dodgers to a 5-1 win in Saturday's NLCS Game 7 against the Brewers.

Puig's night began when he doubled down the right field line in the second inning, and with the Dodgers nursing a one-run lead in the sixth he delivered the biggest blow of the contest with a three-run blast over the left-center field wall. He was hitting .240 with one RBI and two runs scored in 10 postseason games before Saturday's outburst, now batting .310/.412/.517 in 11 playoff contests. Love him or hate him, he's a talent and will once again have a chance to shine on the biggest stage when the World Series starts Tuesday in Boston.

Joc Pederson is starting in left field and batting leadoff for the Dodgers in Saturday's NLCS Game 7 against the Brewers.

Pederson took a seat Friday, with David Freese batting leadoff and playing first base while Chris Taylor moved from second base to left field. On Saturday, it's Taylor at second base and Freese on the bench against Brewers righty Jhoulys Chacin. The rest of the Dodgers' lineup for the winner-take-all contest: Pederson, LF; Max Muncy, 1B; Justin Turner, 3B; Manny Machado, SS; Cody Bellinger, CF; Yasiel Puig, RF; Taylor, 2B; Austin Barnes, C; Walker Buehler, P.

Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports the Marlins will announce the signing of international prospects Victor Victor Mesa and Victor Mesa Jr. on Monday.

The Marlins have been loading up on international bonus pool money for months, including the trade of one-time closer Kyle Barraclough earlier this month, and they've gotten their guys in the top two players available on the international market. Sanchez reports the Marlins will give Victor Victor more than $5 million, and Mesa Jr. nearly $1 million. What a win for an organization desperately in need of one.

Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reported that Jose Altuve recently had surgery on his right knee.

The expectation is that he will be fully healthy in time for spring training. Astros manager A.J. Hinch commented during the playoffs that "He's hurt, if it was any other time of year he wouldn't be playing. His teammates revere him." Altuve originally hurt the knee way back in July during a game against the Rockies. The second baseman won the American League MVP Award in 2017 and then his performance fell off somewhat in 2018, perhaps in large part due to the injury. He registered an .865 OPS in the first half of the season and a .751 OPS after the break. The most obvious sign that his leg was bothering him was a dropoff in stolen bases -- after stealing 30+ bases every year in the previous six seasons he swiped only 17 this year.

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.
Oct 19 - 3:09 PM

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.
