The Padres have fired hitting coach Phil Plantier.

Plantier gets the boot after three seasons on the job. Talent (or lack thereof) is mostly to blame, but he'll ultimately pay the price after the club finished last in the majors in nearly every offensive category this past season.

Jose Bautista said on Sportsnet 590 The FAN on Tuesday that he believes the Blue Jays have a "50-50" chance of re-signing Melky Cabrera.

The Blue Jays are expected to make a one-year, $15.3 million qualifying offer to Cabrera, but they'll have to compete with the open market in order to keep him. "I think he’s going to allow the team a chance to come and match any offer that he might get out on the free agent market," said Bautista. "I think the Blue Jays are going to have a shot at bringing him back, so hopefully for our fan base and for my sake – making my job easier and having him on base a lot, because he does get on base a lot with his bat – hopefully the team does take that chance and re-sign him somehow." Cabrera batted .301/.351/.458 with 16 home runs and 73 RBI over 139 games this season.

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News hears from "people involved in the process" that the Phillies are "strong contenders" for Cuban outfielder Yasmany Tomas.

The Phillies appear to have strong interest in Tomas, as general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. flew to the Dominican Republic to personally scout Tomas. While the Padres and Dodgers have been mentioned as possibilities, Martino hears that they are "far less likely" as potential landing spots. The Tigers have also been added to the list of potential suitors, which includes the Twins, Giants, and Rangers, among others. The Mets and Yankees are not expected to be players for the 23-year-old outfielder, who could end up with a $100 million contract.

Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. indicated Tuesday that he expects A.J. Burnett to return next season.

Burnett has a $12.75 million player option for 2015 and has five days after the World Series to decide whether to accept or decline. The 37-year-old has hinted at retirement and hasn't made an official decision on his future, but Amaro believes that he'll be back. "I’m really kind of neutral on it," said Amaro. "I knew what it took to get him back and pitching this year. I would assume that he’d want to pitch again. I don’t have that information, but my inclination is that he’s going to want to pitch. He’s a competitive guy." Burnett posted a 4.59 ERA and 190/96 K/BB ratio over 213 2/3 innings this season.

Madison Bumgarner was a beast again Tuesday, holding the Royals to one run over seven excellent frames in a 7-1 World Series Game 1 victory.

He struck out five, walked one and allowed just three hits, with Salvador Perez’s solo homer in the seventh inning representing the only blemish on his record. The Royals were only able to muster one rally versus Bumgarner, and that was in the third inning after Brandon Crawford booted a ball to start the frame. MadBum wound up pitching out of that inning with a couple strikeouts and a groundout. Perez’s homer is the only run Bumgarner has allowed in the World Series in 22 career innings. He’ll get the ball again in Game 5, assuming the series lasts that long.
