    Charlie Morton Oct 25 1:40am ET

    Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton will start in Game 1 of the World Series in Houston on Tuesday against his former team, the Houston Astros. Morton pitched for Houston in both 2017 and 2018 and earned the win for the Astros in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers by tossing the final four innings. The veteran right-hander also faced the Astros in the 2019 Division Series and the 2020 American League Championship Series. Morton has pitched well in three starts for Atlanta this postseason, posting a 3.77 ERA with 19 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings, but the Astros will be a tough task on the road. It will be the third time in the last five years that Morton has pitched in the World Series, each time for a different team.

    Framber Valdez Oct 25 1:30am ET

    Houston Astros left-hander Framber Valdez has been tabbed to start Game 1 of the World Series against the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday in Houston. Valdez tossed eight innings of one-run ball in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox and will be starting on regular rest. It's expected that rookie right-hander Luis Garcia will start Game 2 on Wednesday, with right-hander Jose Urquidy going in Game 3 on Friday in Atlanta. Veteran right-hander Zack Greinke figures to be in the mix to start Game 4 after throwing only 1 1/3 innings in his start in Game 4 of the ALCS now that Lance McCullers Jr. (forearm) won't be available for the Fall Classic.

    Lance McCullers Jr. Oct 25 1:30am ET

    Houston Astros starting pitcher Lance McCullers Jr. (forearm) has yet to throw a baseball since straining his right forearm muscle in Game 4 of the American League Division Series against the Chicago White Sox two weeks ago and is unlikely to be on the World Series roster. The Astros aren't officially ruling McCullers out with final rosters having to be set on Tuesday morning, but McCullers' odds of being on the roster aren't good. "We're going to take everything we can to see how he responds," general manager James Click said. "We're not taking anything off the table. We're going to see how he is. It's the World Series. I know Lance wants to be out there if he can." The good news is that McCullers doesn't have any structural damage and should be ready for the 2022 season.

    Jake Meyers Oct 25 1:30am ET

    It's unknown if Houston Astros outfielder Jake Meyers (shoulder) will be included on the roster for the World Series. Meyers was on the roster for the American League Championship Series against the Boston Red Sox despite suffering a left shoulder injury while crashing into the wall in the Division Series against the Chicago White Sox. The Astros thought Meyers could recover and play in the ALCS, but he suffered a setback with his shoulder. Houston was unable to replace Meyers on the ALCS roster, but he was available to pinch hit and pinch run later in the series. With Meyers unavailable on defense, Chas McCormick started four games and Jose Siri started twice in center field against Boston.

    Franchy Cordero Oct 23 5:40pm ET

    The Boston Red Sox designated outfielder Franchy Cordero for assignment on Thursday. Boston needed the roster space to reinstate right-handed pitcher Phillips Valdez from the COVID-19 Related Injured List. Cordero was traded to Boston in February as part of the three-team trade that sent Andrew Benintendi to the Kansas City Royals. The former Kansas City outfielder hit .189 with a .237 on-base percentage, a home run, and a stolen base in 136 plate appearances for the Red Sox this past season.

    Matt Beaty Oct 23 5:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Matt Beaty is getting the start at first base for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday night. Beaty is hitting eighth against Atlanta Braves right-handed starter Ian Anderson. In 234 plate appearances during the regular season, the 28-year-old hit .270 with a .363 on-base percentage, seven home runs, and a pair of stolen bases. He's collected a hit in 10 plate appearances during the postseason this year.

    Freddie Freeman Oct 23 5:20pm ET

    Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman is hitting second for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday. The veteran had hit second in the lineup for the entirety of the series against the Los Angeles Dodgers before Atlanta's Game 5 loss when he hit third behind outfielder Eddie Rosario and second baseman Ozzie Albies. Rosario is once again hitting leadoff with Albies batting third after Freeman against Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler. In 401 plate appearances batting second during the regular season, the first baseman hit .300 with a .399 on-base percentage, a 137 wRC+, and 17 home runs.

    Albert Pujols Oct 23 5:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Albert Pujols isn't in the lineup on Saturday for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series. The veteran collected a pair of hits, two runs scored, and a walk in Los Angeles' Game 5 win. However, he'll head to the bench with right-handed starter Ian Anderson on the mound for the Atlanta Braves. Most of Pujols' plate appearances this postseason have come against left-handed pitching. It'll be Matt Beaty getting the start at first base and batting eighth against Anderson. Pujols is hitting .333 with a .375 on-base percentage in 16 plate appearances for the Dodgers in the playoffs this year.

    Gavin Lux Oct 23 5:20pm ET

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder and shortstop Gavin Lux will start Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on the bench. Lux hit .242 with a .328 on-base percentage in 381 plate appearances during the regular season. The 23-year-old also added seven home runs and four stolen bases. Cody Bellinger started in center field in place of Lux for Los Angeles' Game 5 win and will do so again for Game 6. Bellinger will hit sixth against Atlanta Braves right-hander Ian Anderson.

    Ljay Newsome Oct 23 2:00pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Ljay Newsome (elbow) was claimed off waivers from the Seattle Mariners Friday. Newsome threw 30 1/3 innings in his Mariners career, working to a 6.53 ERA in 12 appearances and five starts. He is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery. It is not expected that he will be ready to start the 2022 season, but he figures to be a depth option both in the bullpen and the starting rotation in St. Louis. Fantasy managers don't need to take note until midseason next year at the earliest.

    Nathan Eovaldi Oct 23 1:50pm ET

    Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi has been a playoff hero in the past, but he couldn't do enough to force a Game 7 in Friday night's ALCS Game 6 loss to the Houston Astros. Eovaldi threw 4 1/3 innings, allowing one run on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts, but even the one run was too much to overcome as Boston fell 5-0. Eovaldi finishes the 2021 playoffs with a 2-2 record, having allowed a 4.79 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 25 strikeouts across 20 2/3 innings in five appearances and four starts. He'll enter 2022 as an under-the-radar top option at starting pitcher.

    Shed Long Jr. Oct 23 1:50pm ET

    Seattle Mariners utility man Shed Long Jr. (shin) was one of a number of players outrighted off the 40-man roster Friday. Utility man Sam Haggerty, pitcher Darren McCaughan, outfielder Marcus Wilson, and pitcher Ryan Weber were also sent to Triple-A. Long Jr. and Weber have both elected free agency. It's been a tough road for Long Jr., who has had each of the last two seasons end with shin issues. There's some power and speed upside, but it's hard to imagine Long Jr. being a factor for fantasy managers entering 2022 no matter where he ends up.

    Walker Buehler Oct 23 1:30pm ET

    The Los Angeles Dodgers will turn to starting pitcher Walker Buehler on short rest for Game 6 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday, with starter Max Scherzer dealing with general arm fatigue. Buehler has made three starts this postseason and last pitched on Oct. 19. Scherzer admitted to having "dead arm" during his 79-pitch start in Game 2 against the Braves when he allowed two runs on four hits in 4 1/3 innings. It's unknown if Mad Max would be available to pitch in a potential Game 7 on Sunday, but the team is holding out hope that he'll feel better. Buehler made his first start on short rest in Game 4 of the Division Series against the San Francisco Giants and gave up just one run in 4 1/3 innings.

    Ryan Weber Oct 22 9:53pm ET

    Seattle Mariners RHP Ryan Weber became a free agent after declining an outright assignment to Class AAA Tacoma Friday, Oct. 22.

    Yonny Chirinos Oct 22 9:43pm ET

    Tampa Bay Rays RHP Yonny Chirinos (elbow) fractured his elbow while recovering from Tommy John surgery and underwent a second surgery.

    Franklin Barreto Oct 22 9:03pm ET

    Los Angeles Angels INF Franklin Barreto and RHP Luke Bard were outrighted to Class AAA Salt Lake Thursday, Oct. 21.
