White Sox sent LHP Frank De Los Santos outright to Triple-A Charlotte.
The 26-year-old left-hander is now off Chicago's 40-man roster. De Los Santos posted a 4.84 ERA in 44 2/3 innings this season between Double-A and Triple-A.
Danny Duffy will be available out of the Royals' bullpen for the first few games of the ALDS.
If he's not needed in those games, the left-hander could start Game 4 against the Angels. Duffy posted a sensational 2.53 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 149 1/3 innings during the regular season but he topped out at 93 1/3 frames between the minors and majors in 2013, so the Royals are trying to be careful with the 25-year-old.
Yordano Ventura will start for the Royals in Game 2 of their ALDS matchup against the Angels.
Ventura gave up a big three-run homer to Brandon Moss in Tuesday night's American League Wild Card Game, but that hasn't swayed the Royals' confidence in the flamethrowing 23-year-old right-hander. Ventura finished the 2014 regular season with a superb 3.20 ERA and 159 strikeouts in 183 innings. Jason Vargas is starting Game 1.
Travis d'Arnaud underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow.
The procedure went according to plan and should have little effect on d'Arnaud's offseason regimen. The 25-year-old catcher batted .265/.313/.474 with seven home runs and 22 RBI in 53 games after the All-Star break and has the look of a potential breakout candidate for the 2015 fantasy season.
Jason Motte didn't make the Cardinals' NLDS roster.
Motte struggled mightily this season in his return from Tommy John elbow surgery, posting a 4.68 ERA and 1.52 WHIP in 29 appearances. The 32-year-old right-hander is going to be a free agent this winter and will likely have to settle for a "prove it" type of contract.
