Tigers GM Al Avila announced Thursday that Josh Wilson will not be brought back for the 2016 season.
Wilson batted .316/.350/.395 this season for the Tigers, but that came in a sample size of just 41 plate appearances. He's a .229/.280/.319 hitter for his career. The 34-year-old infielder should be able to latch on with a new organization this winter, though it might have to be on a non-guaranteed minor league deal.
Joel Peralta is on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.
Peralta had a rough 4.34 ERA in 29 total innings this season for Los Angeles, but he looked a little better after returning from a neck injury in early September. The 39-year-old right-hander will pitch in a middle relief role in the best-of-five against the Mets.
Tigers GM Al Avila said Thursday that he's spoken with J.D. Martinez about a long-term deal.
Martinez still has two years of arbitration eligibility, so there's no rush to get something done this winter. But it sounds like something could happen. Martinez, 28, slashed .282/.344/.535 with 38 home runs and 102 RBI in 158 games this season for Detroit while pulling in $3 million. He'll get a nice bump for 2016 no matter what.
Juan Nicasio is not on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.
Joel Peralta essentially gets the spot instead. Nicasio got off to a very good start this season, but he surrendered nine runs on 17 hits over his final nine innings.
Justin Ruggiano has been informed that he will be on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS.
Ruggiano is a versatile defensive outfielder and batted .291/.350/.618 in 60 plate appearances after joining the Dodgers on September 1. He probably won't get a start against the Mets, but look for the 33-year-old right-handed-hitter to make some appearances in the later innings.
