Stephen Piscotty (wrist) is starting in right field and hitting third on Thursday afternoon in Houston.

Piscotty was lifted from Wednesday night's game against the Astros shortly after taking a pitch off his left wrist, but X-rays came back negative and he's back in there for Thursday's series finale at Minute Maid Park. The 27-year-old is batting .313/.362/.703 with six home runs and 13 RBI over his last 17 games.

Jacob deGrom has been announced as the 2018 National League Cy Young Award winner.

The 30-year-old right-hander was by far the best pitcher in the game during the 2018 regular season, delivering a 1.70 ERA and 269 strikeouts over 217 innings. It was the sixth-lowest ERA among qualified pitchers since Major League Baseball lowered the mound in 1969. Just ignore deGrom's 10-9 record, which was a product of poor run support, a shaky bullpen, and bad luck. He beat out Max Scherzer and Aaron Nola for the hardware with 29 of the 30 first-place votes.

Blake Snell was named the winner of the 2018 American League Cy Young Award.

Snell pitched just 180 2/3 total innings in 2018, a much smaller number than fellow finalists Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber, but the 25-year-old Tampa Bay left-hander still managed a league-high 21 wins and 221 strikeouts alongside a stellar 1.89 ERA. Snell received 17 of the 30 first-place votes. Verlander got the other 13 for his third career second-place finish. He won the award in 2011.

Red Sox signed manager Alex Cora to a one-year contract extension.

Cora was already under contract through 2020, but the Red Sox won 108 regular-season games and a World Series title in his first year at the helm, and will reward the 43-year-old accordingly. He finished second in the 2018 American League Rookie of the Year voting to Athletics manager Bob Melvin. Cora is now signed with Boston through 2021, with a new club option for 2022.

Indians acquired OF Jordan Luplow and INF Max Moroff from the Pirates for INF Erik Gonzalez, RHP Tahnaj Thomas, and RHP Dante Mendoza.

Luplow was blocked by a crowded outfield depth chart in Pittsburgh and should have a better chance of becoming a regular at the MLB level in Cleveland. The 25-year-old spent the majority of the 2018 season at Triple-A Indianapolis, where he posted a decent .287/.367/.462 batting line with eight home runs and seven stolen bases over 88 games. He holds a .194/.274/.371 career slash line in the bigs, but that has come with inconsistent playing time.

Mike Elias will be named the Orioles' new general manager, the Houston Chronicle's Chandler Rome confirms.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand is also on it. Elias is leaving his job as an assistant GM for the Astros, continuing the mass exodus they've seen from their front office. Sig Mejdal is another who left and is expected to join Elias in Baltimore, according to Feinsand.

Athletics manager Bob Melvin has been named the 2018 American League Manager of the Year.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora and Rays manager Kevin Cash both had strong cases, but Melvin was the obvious choice here. He led a club with the lowest Opening Day payroll to a 97-65 regular-season record, fourth-best among all major league teams and a 22-win improvement over the previous year. Melvin, who also won NL Manager of the Year in 2007 and AL Manager of the Year in 2012, inked a multi-year contract extension with the A's late last month.

Braves manager Brian Snitker has been named the 2018 National League Manager of the Year.

Brewers manager Craig Counsell and Rockies manager Bud Black were the other two finalists. Snitker took home the hardware with 17 of the 30 first-place votes after guiding the upstart Braves to 90 regular-season wins and their first postseason appearance since 2013. The National League East champs spent 115 days in first place and didn't have a losing streak longer than four games.

According to Mark Feinsand of MLB.com, the White Sox are "actively trying" to trade Avisail Garcia.

The sense is that the White Sox could non-tender Garcia if they are unable to find a deal. The 27-year-old struggled through knee and hamstring injuries this past season while batting just .236/.281/.438 with 19 homers over 93 games. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on the knee last month. Garcia received a $6.7 million salary in 2018 and will get a raise in arbitration this winter, so interest could be limited.

Shohei Ohtani was announced on Monday as the winner of the 2018 American League Rookie of the Year award.

Ohtani wound up easily topping Miguel Andujar, who had a fantastic rookie campaign in his own right. He just couldn't match up with Ohtani's historic dual-threat season, even though it was a bit abbreviated. Ohtani posted a 3.31 ERA and 63/22 K/BB ratio over 51 2/3 innings across 10 starts for the Angels while also batting .285/.361/.564 with 22 home runs and 61 RBI.

Ronald Acuna was announced on Monday as the winner of the 2018 National League Rookie of the Year award.

Acuna was seen as the favorite over Juan Soto, although the vote was expected to be close. As it turns out, it wasn't, as Acuna received 27 of 30 first-place votes, with Soto picking up two and Walker Buehler one. Acuna rode a monster second half to a final batting line of .293/.366/.552 with 26 home runs for the Braves.

Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu accepted a one-year, $17.9 million qualifying offer.

Of the seven players that were extended qualifying offers, Ryu is expected to be the only one of them that accepts. The left-hander surely could have done better on the open market, but after all the injuries he's dealt with the last few years it's hard to blame him for playing it safe and staying where he's comfortable. The Dodgers are also undoubtedly happy to bring back a guy who posted a 1.97 ERA across 15 starts this past season.
