CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks have added Joe McEwing to their list of managerial candidates.
Rajai Davis (groin) is feeling improvement, but still needs to do more baseball work before the Tigers decide on his status for the ALDS against the Orioles.
Davis exited Saturday's game with a Grade 1 groin strain and has been receiving daily treatment since, but the real test will be doing baseball activities. The Tigers could still put him on the roster even if he's not a full-go for Game 1. A final decision should come on Thursday.
Jose Fernandez threw Wednesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery.
Fernandez, who had Tommy John surgery in mid-May, made 25 throws from a distance of 30 feet. It's just the first step in a long process, which will likely keep him sidelined until around midseason in 2015.
Michael Wacha will pitch out of the Cardinals' bullpen during the NLDS against the Dodgers.
It's hard to disagree with this decision, as Wacha didn't show enough in September to secure a spot in the NLDS rotation. Adam Wainwright will start Game 1 and will be followed by Lance Lynn, John Lackey, and (if necessary) Shelby Miller. Wacha dominated Los Angeles last October en route to winning NLCS MVP, but he dealt with a shoulder injury for much of this season.
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.
