Curtis Granderson was named Friday as the 2016 recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award.
The humanitarian award honors the major league player who best represents the game both on and off the field. The 35-year-old has long been lauded for his charitable efforts and giving back to the community. He also had a pretty solid season on the field, slashing .237/.335/.464 with 30 homers and 59 RBI. He's the fourth player in Mets' history to win the award, joining Gary Carter (1989), Al Leiter (2000) and Carlos Delgado (2006).
Indians manager Terry Francona announced Friday that Trevor Bauer will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Cubs.
The Tribe had already announced that Corey Kluber would work on short rest in Game 4. Bauer labored in his Game 2 loss, throwing 87 pitches in just 3 2/3 innings. Danny Salazar worked in relief of him in Game 5 and should also be available for Game 5 should Bauer struggle again.
Brewers activated LHP Sean Nolin from the 60-day disabled list; sent him outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
He's now off the club's 40-man roster. Nolin missed all of this season with elbow issues, eventually having Tommy John surgery in August. He might not pitch in a game until 2018.
Brewers sent 1B Andy Wilkins outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Wilkins spent nearly all of 2016 at Colorado Springs, hitting only .235/.321/.419 with 12 homers. He'll have to earn his way back onto the 40-man roster.
Brewers sent INF/OF Jake Elmore outright to Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Elmore saw action in 58 games for Milwaukee this season, batting .218/.371/.244. The 29-year-old can declare free agency if he wants.
