The veteran wasn't on the team's roster for the Division Series, but he'll give the Astros another starting option against the Boston Red Sox alongside Luis Garcia, Framber Valdez, and Jose Urquidy. Odorizzi made two starts against Boston during the regular season, striking out a total of eight batters in a combined eight innings while surrendering seven hits, six earned runs, four walks, and two home runs.

    Matt Barnes Oct 15 8:10pm ET

    Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Matt Barnes isn't on the team's roster for their American League Championship Series matchup against the Houston Astros. Barnes pitched to a 3.79 ERA and a 3.21 FIP in 54.2 innings during the regular season but gave up 11 hits and five earned runs in his last 6.2 innings down the stretch. He initially wasn't on Boston's roster for the Division Series, but was added to the roster after fellow pitcher Garrett Richards suffered a left hamstring strain. Barnes allowed two walks and a hit while striking out a batter in a scoreless inning in his only appearance during the Division Series. That outing came during Boston's Game 2 win.

He'll hit eighth against Boston Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale. McCormick has yet to face Sale in his career, but he hit .244 with a .322 on-base percentage, a .346 wOBA and a 122 wRC+ in 90 plate appearances against left-handed pitching during the regular season.

While he's yet to face the Astros this season, Sale has pitched to a 2.20 ERA in 65.1 career innings against the club while recording 86 strikeouts and surrendering 13 walks.

    Nathan Eovaldi Oct 14 9:30pm ET

    Boston Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi will take the mound in Game 2 of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros on Saturday. It'll be Eovaldi's third outing of the postseason after starting the Wild Card game and making a start during the Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays. In 10.1 playoff innings this year, the right-hander has struck out 16 batters while surrendering seven hits, three earned runs, two home runs, and a walk. He previously made one start against the Astros during the regular season, allowing 11 hits, five earned runs, three walks, and a home run in 5.2 innings on June 9. He also struck out five during that outing.

    Wilmer Flores Oct 14 9:10pm ET

    San Francisco Giants infielder Wilmer Flores is getting the start at first base on Thursday. The veteran is hitting seventh in Game 5 of the Giants' National League Division Series matchup with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Right-handed reliever Corey Knebel is serving as the opener for Los Angeles with left-hander Julio Urias, who usually starts, also set to pitch. Urias could enter the game right after Knebel, or Los Angeles could theoretically use a second relief pitcher after the right-hander. Flores drew a walk and scored a run in two plate appearances against Urias in the second game of the series.

    LaMonte Wade Jr. Oct 14 9:10pm ET

    San Francisco Giants first baseman and outfielder LaMonte Wade Jr. isn't in the lineup Thursday for Game 5 of the National League Division Series. The 27-year-old hit .253 with a .326 on-base percentage, 18 home runs, and six stolen bases in 381 plate appearances this season. Instead, Wilmer Flores is in the lineup at first base with Darin Ruf, Kris Bryant, and Mike Yastrzemski starting from left to right in the outfield against Los Angeles Dodgers opener Corey Knebel. Left-hander Julio Urias, who usually starts for the Dodgers, is set to pitch at some point after Knebel.

    Donovan Solano Oct 14 9:10pm ET

    San Francisco Giants infielder Donovan Solano will be on the bench to begin Game 5 of the National League Division Series. Solano has been productive against left-handed pitchers this season. In 123 plate appearances against left-handers, the veteran is hitting .301 with a .344 on-base percentage and five home runs. The Dodgers are going with Corey Knebel as an opener on Thursday with left-hander Julio Urias, who usually starts, pitching at some point after him. Solano previously started the second game of the series against Urias and appeared as a pinch hitter in the other three games.

    AJ Pollock Oct 14 9:01pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder AJ Pollock will start Thursday's National League Division Series contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers and right-hander Logan Webb on the bench. Pollock hit .297 with a .355 on-base percentage, 21 home runs, and nine stolen bases in 422 plate appearances during the regular season. He previously started the first three games of the series, registering a pair of hits and a walk while driving in a pair of runs in Los Angeles' Game 2 win. The veteran went hitless in his other two appearances during the series. The Dodgers are starting Chris Taylor, Gavin Lux, and Mookie Betts from left to right in the outfield on Thursday.

    Corey Knebel Oct 14 2:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Corey Knebel will start Thursday night's deciding Game 5 against the San Francisco Giants. This comes as a significant surprise, as the strong expectation was for lefty Julio Urias to take the mound for the Dodgers. It is possible this is intended to force Giants manager Gabe Kapler into starting his lefties against the right-handed Knebel, only to have Urias enter for a bulk outing. There have been no reports of any injury for Urias at this time. Stay tuned for updates.

    Mike Foltynewicz Oct 14 1:03pm ET

    Texas Rangers RHP Mike Foltynewicz has elected to enter free agency this offseason.

    Lance McCullers Jr. Oct 14 12:30pm ET

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. (forearm) should be fine in the long run after undergoing an MRI exam, but there's still no word on whether he will be able to pitch during the rest of the postseason. McCullers left early in Game 4 of the American League Division Series against the Chicago White Sox with right forearm discomfort. The 28-year-old right-hander allowed one run on five hits while striking out five and walking three in four innings before he departed. While McCullers' long-term outlook is good heading into 2022, it still seems unlikely that he'll be available for the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox, which begins on Friday. Stay tuned for more details on a potential timetable for his return.
