Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said Friday that he told Albert Almora he'd have "more" of a role in 2018.

It's possible that means Almora is an everyday player, although Epstein wouldn't guarantee that. Epstein's pronouncement isn't terribly surprising after Almora put up a better-than-expected .298/.338/.445 batting line in 2017 while playing superb defense in center field. The key for the 23-year-old going forward will be whether he can hit righties, as he's a career .320/.377/.503 hitter against lefties but holds a more modest .275/.300/.415 line versus righties.

Jake Petricka had a nerve transposition in his right elbow on Friday.

The operation was performed by Dr. James Andrews. Petricka will begin a throwing program in 3-4 months, so he should have a relatively normal spring training if all goes well during his rehab.

Evan Gattis is starting in the designated hitter spot and batting eighth for the Astros in ALCS Game 6 on Friday versus the Yankees.

Carlos Beltran has started four of the five games so far this series in the DH spot, but it will be Gattis in there Friday against right-hander Luis Severino. The Astros' full lineup looks like this: George Springer CF, Josh Reddick RF, Jose Altuve 2B, Carlos Correa SS, Yulieski Gurriel 1B, Alex Bregman 3B, Marwin Gonzalez LF, Gattis DH, Brian McCann C.

Daniel Murphy underwent a debridement and microfracture surgery on Friday to repair damage to the articular cartilage in his right knee.

Murphy tore the MCL in the same knee many years ago but this is the first we've heard of any knee issues since then. The Nationals did not reveal a timetable for his return, only saying that he will rehab "throughout the offseason." It's a significant operation, so it's certainly possible that Murphy will be limited in spring training.
