Clayton Kershaw will officially start Game 1 of the World Series against the Red Sox.

That has been the most likely scenario, even after Kershaw threw 15 pitches to close out Game 7 against the Brewers on Saturday. The alternative would have been Rich Hill, but instead we'll get the marquee matchup of Kershaw vs. Chris Sale.

Sandy Leon will indeed catch Chris Sale for Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Recent reports indicated as much, but Red Sox manager Alex Cora acknowledged the pairing on Monday. And it's ultimately not a big surprise that Leon gets the call over Christian Vazquez, as he caught most of Sale's starts during the regular season.

The Red Sox will meet Monday to discuss Steven Wright (knee) and his status for the World Series.

Wright was pulled off Boston's playoff roster after experiencing knee pain following Game 1 of the ALDS. The knuckleballer will eventually require arthroscopic surgery on the knee, but he's hoping to return to game action in the World Series. He made it through a simulated game on Sunday without any issues, so there's still a chance.

David Price will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

That was the speculation already, but it's now official. Price spun six scoreless innings in his Game 5 start against the Astros last week to pitch the Red Sox into the World Series. Red Sox manager Alex Cora will see how his bullpen unfolds before deciding on whether to go with Rick Porcello or Nathan Eovaldi for Game 3.

Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN reports that Rays field coordinator Rocco Baldelli is having another interview on Monday for the team's managerial vacancy.

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported over the weekend that the Twins have trimmed their list of finalists down to 3-5 names. Derek Shelton, who was Paul Molitor's bench coach this season, has been considered the favorite in recent days. However, there could still be some room for a surprise here. Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde and Twins hitting coach James Rowson are among the other candidates who have been under consideration.

Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record hears that MLB executive Kim Ng and agent Casey Close are not finalists for the Mets' general manager job.

With the second round of interviews reportedly set to begin on Tuesday, that leaves former Brewers and Rangers GM Doug Melvin, Rays senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom, and CAA agent Brodie Van Wagenen as the three finalists. Melvin would satisfy Fred Wilpon's reported preference for an old school-type while Bloom has more an an analytics bent. Van Wagenen, who represents multiple prominent Mets players, remains the big wild card in the mix.
Oct 22 - 1:33 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post reports that the Mets will begin their final round of general manager interviews on Tuesday.

And the finalists are beginning to come into focus, as Gary LaRocque, DeJon Watson, and Dave Littlefield are no longer in the mix. Former Brewers and Rangers GM Doug Melvin, MLB executive Kim Ng, and Rays senior vice president of baseball operations Chaim Bloom remain in the running while agents Brodie Van Wagenen and Casey Close are reportedly also being considered. There's been some secrecy to the process, but look for a more overt process this week as the Mets get closer to a decision.

Marlins signed OF Victor Mesa, Jr. to a minor league contract.

The younger Mesa's deal is believed to be for $1 million, according to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com. He's not as highly-touted as Victor Victor, but Sanchez writes that he has "hitting potential and a decent arm." Either way, he's likely a few years off from making an impact. The Marlins were also pursuing right-hander Sandy Gaston, but they don't have the international bonus money remaining in order to make it happen.
