Adrian Beltre (back) was excused from the Rangers team workout on Saturday in order to stay home and rest.
He's still considered day-to-day and the Rangers are hopeful that he'll be able to return to the lineup for Game 3 on Sunday. With a two-game advantage in the series though, they can afford to be patient and not rush him back as the situation isn't dire.
Chris Coghlan is not in the Cubs starting lineup for Game 2 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Saturday.
Coghlan drew a start in the first game, but manager Joe Maddon has opted to use Austin Jackson in left field against left-hander Jaime Garcia.
Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs starting lineup for Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday.
Schwarber blasted a two-run homer in the Wild Card game, then reached base three times in Friday's loss to the Cardinals. He'll take a seat against left-hander Jaime Garcia though, with Jorge Soler starting in right field and batting second for the Cubs.
Tigers general manager Al Avila announced Saturday that he doesn't expect to re-sign catcher Alex Avila this winter.
In what has to be a tough decision, the elder Avila noted that re-signing his son is not considered a priority and that his son is likely to find a better opportunity elsewhere this offseason. The 28-year-old slashed a disappointing .191/.339/.287 with four homers and 13 RBI over 67 games in an injury-plagued 2015 season.
Yadier Molina confirmed after Friday's game that he felt "very good" and classified his thumb injury as "no problem at all".
That's certainly encouraging news for the Cardinals, as they will seemingly have their leader in the lineup for the duration of the postseason. Though he went 0-for-3 with a strikeout at the dish, the value that he provides behind the plate and in calling games is immeasurable.
