Lyle Overbay expected to retire


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5:43 pm ET) Brewers first baseman Lyle Overbay said Wednesday that he's "99.9 percent sure" he'll retire this offseason, MLB Network Radio reports.

Overbay wrapped up his 2014 season with a .233/.328/.333 line along with four home runs and 35 RBI in 258 at-bats while playing with the Brewers for the first time since 2005. If this is the end, he'll finish his career with a .266/.347/.429 line along with 151 home runs, 675 RBI and 19 stolen bases in 5,102 at-bats over 14 years with six different teams.


Lack of lineup protection hurt Braves 1B Freddie Freeman in 2014


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was great during clutch situations in 2013, finishing second in the majors with a .443 average with runners in scoring position. However, he wasn't nearly as productive in that area in 2014, batting .294 with runners in scoring position.

"I think the formula for Freddie is getting consistent chances," Braves hitting coach Greg Walker said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "The (No.) 1 and 2 hole was up and down this year. We couldn’t find consistent answers there. We needed Jason (Heyward) in both spots, in the middle and leading off. That was not what he wanted to do. Jason views himself as a middle-of-the-lineup hitter. He’s a team player and he’s going to do whatever the manager asks him to do, but that’s what he views himself as, a middle-of-the-order hitter.

"But if you give Freddie consistent chances and they pitch to him, that’s another big key. You’ve got to have somebody behind him, that’s part of the puzzle. Yeah, Justin (Upton) had a great year hitting behind him this year, but one reason (Upton) had a lot of RBI is that Freeman walked a lot."

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Reds first baseman Joey Votto is likely done for the rest of the year, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer

General manager Walt Jocketty said "it doesn't make any sense at this point" to bring Votto back. He's been sidelined since July 5 due to a quad injury. Votto hit .255/.390/.409 over 220 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Medica struck in the first inning, smashing a three-run blast to left field to put the Padres ahead for good. It was just his second home run since Aug. 3. Medica has hit .237/.290/.415 with nine home runs, 27 RBI and six stolen bases in 236 at-bats.


Joey Votto participates in pregame activities


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Reds first baseman Joey Votto returned to pregame activities Tuesday, but Bryan Price stressed that there is no change to his status. The team would prefer to bring him back into action before the end of the season, but have yet to make an announcement with just five games remaining.

"He was doing everything - hitting the cage, taking ground balls, running bases, by the last day there in St. Louis, but we'll probably know more on that in the nest day or two," Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer, which recently reported that it's unlikely he'll play again until next year. "There's not a whole of time left."

Votto has been sidelined since July 5 with a quad injury.


Matt Carpenter and Matt Adams back in the lineup


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Joey Votto not expected to return this season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Reds first baseman Joey Votto (quad) has taken batting practice for four straight days without any problems, but his return before season's end is considered doubtful, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer. He's been on the disabled list since July 8.

"He's not pain-free," manager Bryan Price said. "He's not 100 percent, and he won't be at any time during the rest of the season. So the question is, Do we want to play him at less than 100 percent? He still hasn't seen any live pitching."

The Reds are out of the race and would like Votto to enter 2015 spring training completely healthy.


Matt Carpenter, Matt Adams out Saturday with illness


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Cardinals third baseman Matt Carpenter and first baseman Matt Adams are not in the starting lineup Saturday due to stomach illness, MLB.com reports.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez went 2 for 5 with two home runs and five RBI in his team's 8-7 loss to the Cubs Saturday.

Gonzalez put his team up big in the early part of the team, delivering a two-run blast in the first inning and adding a three-run shot in the third inning. Up 6-1 after three innings, the Dodgers would see the lead slip away by the end of the eighth. Gonzalez has hit .278/.337/.479 with 25 home runs in 568 at-bats, and he leads the majors with 111 RBI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
