Giants manager Bruce Bochy doesn't anticipate having to remove Tim Lincecum (back) from the World Series roster.

Lincecum is undergoing a precautionary MRI on his back Thursday after exiting Game 2, but he's already feeling better and the Giants think he'll be fine. If the MRI turns out worse than expected, George Kontos could be an option to replace him on the Giants' roster.

Royals manager Ned Yost indicated Thursday that Jarrod Dyson could start over Norichika Aoki in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

That would mean putting Dyson in center and shifting Lorenzo Cain over to handle the tough right field at AT&T Park. Aoki would also offer more than Dyson off the bench as a pinch-hitter. Dyson is hitless in seven at-bats this postseason, while Aoki is just 7-for-34 at the dish.

Brandon Moss underwent surgery Thursday to repair a torn labrum and also fix an impingement in his right hip.

Moss was bothered by the hip ailment for much of the second half and it showed at the plate, as he hit just .162 with a .575 OPS in 162 plate appearances after August 1. He'll be on crutches for four weeks and is expected to be able to run in 12 weeks. Moss might be eased into things at the beginning of spring training but should be fine by Opening Day.

The Mets have hired Kevin Long as hitting coach.

Long was recently let go by the Yankees after eight seasons on the job, but he'll now be reunited with Curtis Granderson in Queens. The Mets fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens back in May and let go of Lamar Johnson, his replacement, and assistant hitting coach Luis Natera following the season.

Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Dave Magadan will remain hitting coach with the Rangers.

Magadan was allowed to seek employment elsewhere after the Rangers made a change at manager, but he ultimately opted to stick around. The Athletics and Mets were mentioned as possibilities for Magadan, but they'll now have to look elsewhere.

Craig Breslow expects the Red Sox to decline his $4 million club option for 2015.

It doesn't take a big leap of logic to come to that conclusion, as Breslow posted an ugly 5.96 ERA and 37/28 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings this season. Look for him to receive a $100,000 buyout and hit the free agent market.

Phillies and LHP Cesar Jimenez avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract.

No word on the terms involved. Jimenez, who turns 30 next month, split this season between the majors and the minors. He had a 1.69 ERA in 16 appearances with the Phillies.

Phillies re-signed OF Grady Sizemore to a one-year, $2 million contract.

The deal includes performance bonuses. Sizemore, 32, batted .253/.313/.389 with three home runs and 12 RBI over 176 plate appearances after joining the Phillies around midseason and figures to serve as a part-time player in 2015.
