3 months agoSan Diego Padres left-handed pitcher Matt Strahm (knee) will undergo a patellar tendon repair in his right knee. He underwent a similar surgery on his left knee in 2017 when he was with the Royals. Strahm went 0-1 with a 2.61 ERA in 19 outings in his third season with the Friars this year. The 28-year-old southpaw made 46 appearances in 2019 and started 16 of those, sporting a 4.71 ERA and 1.25 WHIP while striking out 9.3 hitters per nine innings. In his five MLB seasons, Strahm has made 151 appearances, with only 24 coming in the form of a start. He can be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy leagues heading into the 2021 season.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

3 months agoTampa Bay Rays second baseman Brandon Lowe hit two home runs -- both to the opposite field after he hit zero opposite-field homers in the regular season -- in the 6-4 World Series victory over the Dodgers in Game 2 on Wednesday. Lowe helped the team snap a major league record of 10 straight games with eight hits or fewer. The left-handed hitter came into Game 2 of the World Series in a 4-for-52 funk before going deep twice. The 26-year-old is still hitting just .131 (8-for-61) during the postseason with three home runs, five RBI and six runs scored in 15 games. But perhaps the big game on Wednesday will get him going for the rest of the series.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Juan Toribio

3 months agoThe Washington Nationals re-signed utilityman Josh Harrison to a one-year, $1 million deal on Thursday. Harrison was released by the Phillies in July and latched on with the Nats, hitting .278 with two doubles, three home runs, 14 RBI, six walks and 11 runs scored for Washington. The 33-year-old can make an extra $250,000 in performance bonuses tied to plate appearances in 2021. The two-time All-Star doesn't carry much fantasy appeal at this point in his career, but he's useful in NL-only leagues for his positional versatility, as he's started games at second base, third base, shortstop, designated hitter and both corner outfield spots in his 10-year career. He has a .273 career batting average, but he hit just .175 with a home run in 36 games for Detroit in 2019.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN.com

3 months agoThe Los Angeles Dodgers did not use left-handed pitcher Julio Urias out of the bullpen in the Game 2 World Series loss to the Rays on Wednesday, lining him up to start Game 4 on Saturday. The Dodgers will roll with Walker Buehler, Urias and Clayton Kershaw in Games 3, 4 and 5, respectively. Urias, 24, has been one of the Dodgers most consistent pitchers in the playoffs this year, going 4-0 with a 0.56 ERA, 16 strikeouts and three walks in 16 innings. Opponents have hit just .125 against him, and the only earned run he's allowed came on a solo home run. Manager Dave Roberts may trust him more than any other pitcher on the team right now. He'll be a solid DFS choice this Saturday if he can keep his pitch count low and go deep into the game.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Los Angeles - Alden Gonzalez

3 months agoThe Detroit Tigers have interviewed Dodgers first base coach George Lombard and Yankees hitting coach Marcus Thames, who both previously played for the Tigers, for their managerial opening, according to sources. The two join long-time Tigers coach Lloyd McClendon as candidates who have interviewed for the job. McLendon served as the interim manager following Ron Gardenhire's retirement in September. Pirates bench coach Don Kelly is also expected to interview for the opening. Former Astros manager A.J. Hinch and former Red Sox manager Alex Cora are also on the list of candidates. The Tigers aren't expected to rush their hire, especially since Hinch and Cora must wait until after the World Series to speak with teams due to their suspensions centered around the Astros sign-stealing scandal of 2017.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com
Share:
3 months agoThe Chicago White Sox have interviewed Tony La Russa for their managerial opening, and he remains a top candidate in their search, according to two sources. General manager Rick Hahn and executive vice president Kenny Williams each spoke with the 76-year-old. La Russa managed the White Sox from 1979-86 before moving to the Athletics and Cardinals during his Hall of Fame career, but he hasn't managed since winning a World Series with St. Louis in 2011. His close personal relationship with chairman Jerry Reinsdorf could help him get the job. Chicago is hoping to pick a new manager in the next 10 days to two weeks. La Russa's 2,728 career wins as a manager rank third-most all time. He's won titles with the A's in 1989 and with the Cardinals in 2006 and 2011.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: 670 The Score - Bruce Levine

3 months agoTampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Charlie Morton, who is 5-0 in five playoff starts with the team, will get the ball for Game 3 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Friday. Morton's velocity was down during the regular season, but he's been great in the postseason. The right-hander threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings in just 66 pitches in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series against the Astros. The 36-year-old is 3-0 with a 0.57 ERA in three playoff starts this year, with opposing hitters sporting just a .474 OPS against him. Morton helped beat the Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series with the Astros back in 2017. The playoff experience and success is there, but he's also facing a historically stacked Dodgers lineup, making him a risk/reward DFS choice.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Juan Toribio

3 months agoLos Angeles Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts was 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, two runs scored, and two stolen bases during an 8-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the World Series. The 28-year-old became the first player in MLB history to hit a homer, steal two bases, and score two runs in a World Series game. Betts is one of the brightest stars in baseball, and his elite skill set has been on full display in the postseason. He is a worthwhile building block in any DFS lineups for the rest of the Fall Classic.--Raymond Harrison - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

3 months agoLos Angeles Dodgers rookie right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Rays on Wednesday. Gonsolin faced 11 batters and tossed 41 pitches in Game 7 of the National League Championship Series against Atlanta on Sunday, so he may only be able to go a couple of innings. Manager Dave Roberts said that youngsters Julio Urias and Dustin May will also be available out of the bullpen on Wednesday, although Urias and May combined to face 14 batters in Game 7. Whoever is freshest among Gonsolin, May and Urias will likely start in Game 4 on Saturday. Because Gonsolin may not go over a few innings on Wednesday, he's not a sound DFS choice on Wednesday over Rays starter Blake Snell.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Los Angeles - Alden Gonzalez

3 months agoLos Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts wasn't willing to divulge who would start Game 2 of the World Series against the Rays on Wednesday. "It's going to be a bullpen, whatever, kind of game, using various arms," Roberts said. "Who starts that game, I just don't know yet." They'll be opposed by 2018 American League Cy Young winner Blake Snell, who went 4-2 with a 3.24 ERA in 11 regular season starts. Snell has gone 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA in four playoff starts. Left-hander Julio Urias and right-handers Dustin May and Tony Gonsolin are all options to get the nod for the Dodgers. Urias is 4-0 in the playoffs, with his only start coming in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series. Urias could also be a potential starter for Game 4.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Associated Press

3 months agoSan Diego Padres catching prospect Luis Campusano was arrested and charged in Georgia with felony marijuana possession on Oct. 17. The 22-year-old was pulled over with nearly three times the felony threshold in one of the strictest states on marijuana and faces a punishment of up to 10 years in prison. The Friars No. 4 prospect debuted in 2020 for just one game, homering in four plate appearances before spraining his wrist and missing the rest of the regular season. He was expected to compete for a backup role behind backstop Austin Nola in 2021. While the legal process plays out, dynasty players should hang tight and hope for the best on their premium fantasy asset.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource: SDUT - Kevin Acee

3 months agoTampa Bay Rays outfielder Brett Phillips and left-handed pitcher Ryan Sherriff have been added to the team's roster for the World Series. Right-hander Aaron Slegers and left-handed reliever Jose Alvarado were subsequently dropped from the roster. Tampa will go with 13 pitchers against the Dodgers, one fewer than they used during the American League Championship Series against the Astros. The World Series has days off after Games 2 and 5, so pitchers will have a bit more rest during the series. Phillips went 0-for-2 in the Division Series against the Yankees, while Sherriff hasn't pitched since the last day of the regular season on Sept. 27, but he could be used in high-leverage situations against the Dodgers left-handed hitters.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: The Associated Press
Share:
3 months agoSan Diego Padres pitcher Luis Perdomo (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery last week and will miss the entire 2021 season. The 27-year-old was once a staple in the Friars staff, making 64 appearances (49 starts) across 2016-2017, but struggled to achieve consistency in the majors. Relegated to long relief and mop-up duties in 2020, Perdomo posted a 5.71 ERA over 17 1/3 frames. Not a free agent until 2023, Perdomo will look to rebound in 2022 to revitalize his career once he’s fully recovered.--Andrew Le - RotoBallerSource: Twitter - Dennis Lin

3 months agoTampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco, the No. 1 prospect in baseball per MLB Pipeline, is unlikely to make his debut in the World Series against the Dodgers. Franco shared a photo on Instagram of his jersey with a World Series 2020 patch on the sleeve on Monday, fueling speculation that he could be added to the team's roster. He also posted a photo of a jersey with the playoff logo on it before the American League Division Series, but he wasn't on the roster for that series. Franco is part of the team's 40-man postseason player pool and spent the 2020 season training in Port Charlotte. It's fun to think about the talented shortstop making his MLB debut in the World Series, but it seems unlikely to happen.--Keith Hernandez - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com - Scott Chiusano
