CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mariners are expected to fire manager Lloyd McClendon.

It's no surprise, as McClendon is a holdover from the Jack Zduriencik regime and new general manager Jerry Dipoto will want to bring in his own guy. Plus, the M's just completed a disappointing 76-86 season after some pundits in the spring predicted a playoff run. Heyman says that Tim Bogar, who was an interim manager with the Rangers in 2014 and served in a front-office capacity under Dipoto in Anaheim, would be a "prime candidate" to be Seattle's new skipper.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "there is expected to be real interest" from the Yankees in Jeff Samardzija.

Heyman says the Yanks "may be disinclined to go for the big-ticket pitching items" like David Price and Zack Greinke, but they could target Samardzija following a down season for the righty. The Bombers reportedly "love Samardizja for his potential, and also for his interest in the big stage." Samardzija held a 4.96 ERA for the White Sox this season but is a good bet to bounce back in 2016.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "some believe" Marlins owner Jeffery Loria "is ultimately hoping to land Don Mattingly" as the club's next manager.

The Marlins have already interviewed Manny Acta, Bo Porter and Larry Bowa for their vacant managerial position and plan to interview Phil Nevin, but it appears Loria might have his eyes on Mattingly. Of course, Mattingly is under contract with the Dodgers next season and Los Angeles has given no indication to this point that they'll let him go. Heyman notes that the Marlins are "working off a very long list" when it comes to their managerial search.

Chris Gimenez is starting at catcher and hitting eighth for the Rangers in Friday's Game 2 of the ALDS.

Robinson Chirinos homered in Game 1 Thursday, but he's on the bench the next day with the Rangers preferring to pair Gimenez with Cole Hamels. Gimenez hit .255/.330/.490 with five homers in 36 games for Texas this season.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said after Thursday's Game 1 victory that Shawn Tolleson "is still our guy, and you will see him at the end of the game."

Banister used Sam Dyson to close out Thursday's win, as he felt his groundball tendencies were a better option in the ninth inning against the middle of the Blue Jays' lineup. The situation could come up again, so don't rule Dyson out for more save chances, but it looks like Tolleson retains his closer tag. "In a series like this," Banister said, "it’s about finding the best matchups for our bullpen. It’s not ninth inning, eighth inning, seventh inning. It’s about those guys coming in when we feel it’s the best opportunity for them to get the outs we need to get."
