New York Yankees starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka allowed six runs over only four innings against the Indians on Wednesday.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder/designated hitter Joc Pederson is not among the starting nine for Game 1 of Wednesday’s wild-card series versus Milwaukee.

Cincinnati Reds right-handed pitcher Luis Castillo will be tasked with keeping his club alive in the postseason for Game 2 on Thursday against Atlanta.

Los Angeles Dodgers first/third baseman Edwin Rios will serve as the designated hitter for Game 1 of Wednesday’s wild-card series versus Milwaukee and left-hander Brent Suter.
