Hanley Ramirez underwent surgery on his left shoulder Tuesday.

Ramirez said after the season that he didn't expect to need shoulder surgery even though he's dealt with nagging shoulder issues for a while now. However, obviously something changed. The exact nature of the procedure isn't known at this point, nor is how long he will need to rehab. The Red Sox should reveal more details later Tuesday.
Oct 17 - 1:08 PM's Mark Bowman reports that former Rockies manager Walt Weiss "is among the possible replacements" to be added to the Braves' coaching staff.

Bowman says Weiss could be the team's new bench coach, replacing Terry Pendleton. First base coach Eddie Perez and pitching coach Chuck Hernandez are also candidates to be let go, although the club hasn't announced any staff changes yet. Weiss didn't coach anywhere this season after managing the Rockies from 2013-16.

Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post writes that the Nationals and manager Dusty Baker "had worked toward an extension" at midseason before "negotiations sputtered."

Svrluga says the reason talks broke down is because of a story that came out in which Baker expressed frustration an extension hadn't been worked out yet, and that "displeased the ownership group of the Lerner family." He adds that before the NLDS a deal was supposed to still get done, but that, of course, was before the Nats failed to win a postseason series yet again. Baker has led Washington to two division titles in his two years as manager, but they've fallen in NLDS Game 5 both times. The Nationals are known to take hard stances in contract negotiations with managers (it's why talks with Bud Black broke down two years ago and they wound up hiring Baker), and no skipper has lasted three full seasons since the team arrived in D.C. in 2005. It appears that Baker returning is truly up in the air at this point.

Dustin Pedroia will decide within the next few days whether or not to undergo surgery his ailing left knee.

Pedroia has been advised by specialists in New York and Boston and now must decide whether to go under the knife. It's not clear what type of surgery he would have if he does decide to have an operation, but Pedroia said last week that "the recovery is a long time." We should know before the end of the week what direction the second baseman will take.
