Michael Morse (oblique) is not on the Giants' roster for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Pirates.
It's not a big surprise, as Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tuesday that Morse was "doubtful" to play. The 32-year-old hasn't played since August 31 with a strained left oblique and his status is in question even if the Giants play far into October.
The Phillies are in the process of scheduling hernia surgery for A.J. Burnett.
Burnett pitched through the injury for most of the season while posting a 4.59 ERA and 190/96 K/BB ratio over 213 2/3 innings. The 37-year-old has a $12.75 million player option for 2015, but he's still undecided about continuing his career.
Jake Peavy is on the Giants' roster for Wednesday's Wild Card Game against the Pirates.
Tim Lincecum is also on the roster. Peavy won't be used if all goes as planned for the Giants, but they want him around for insurance for Madison Bumgarner. The Giants are also going with three catchers, which will enable them to use Andrew Susac's bat off the bench.
Cliff Lee (elbow) underwent an MRI last Friday which showed that his left flexor tendon is healing well.
Lee was shut down in late-July due to the recurrence of a flexor pronator strain in his left elbow. The veteran southpaw was treated with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection and will not require surgery. He'll begin a throwing program in November and the hope is that he'll be ready for spring training, but he remains a question mark going into 2015.
Lyle Overbay said on MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM on Wednesday that he's "99.9 percent sure" that he'll retire.
Overbay appeared in 121 games with the Brewers this season while batting just .233/.328/.333 with four home runs and 28 RBI. Assuming he's done, the 37-year-old will finish his career with a .266 batting average to go along with 1,355 hits, 151 home runs and 675 RBI over 14 seasons.
