Giants' Joe Panik hits two run shot Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Giants infielder Joe Panik added another big hit Thursday against the Cardinals.

With a man on base in the bottom of the third, Panik belted an 88 mph cutter from Adam Wainwright out to right for a two-run shot that gave the Giants a lead. That lead wouldn't last, but the Giants would wind up winning in the bottom of the ninth. Panik finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and two RBI. 


Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong homers in Game 4 NLCS loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 2 for 4 with a double and a solo home run in his team's 6-4 loss to the Giants in Game 4 of the NLCS Wednesday.

Wong is in the midst of a hot stretch, going 5 for 11 with two doubles, one triple, two home runs and four RBI in his last three games. His third-inning home run Wednesday put the Cardinals up 4-1, but the Giants were able to score five unanswered runs to take a 3-1 series lead. Wong has hit .280/.308/.840 with three home runs and six RBI in 25 postseason at-bats.


Kolten Wong has 20-20 potential for 2015


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(10/15/2014) Kolten Wong has been a surprise power source for the Cardinals this postseason, clubbing a pair of homers to go along with two doubles and a triple in just six games. "Slugger" is not a word that has often (if ever) been used to describe the 24-year-old second baseman, but he appears to be evolving into just that.

Since July 6 (and including the postseason), Wong has hit 13 home runs over 74 games, and as I have detailed in a recent blog post, he has backed up the increase in his power numbers with dramatically higher flyball distances. Wong has already demonstrated he can swipe 20 bases in a season, and his recent homer pace shows he has a shot to complete the other end of the 20-20 equation next season, even with some regression.

I've actually projected Wong to fall four home runs short of the threshold of 20, but barring a complete reversal of his recent progress, he should be targeted by owners in all standard mixed league formats next spring.


Cardinals 2B Kolten Wong drives in two runs in Game 3 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong went 2 for 4 with a double, a triple and two RBI in his team's 5-4, 10-inning loss to the Giants in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.

After the Cardinals fell behind 4-0 in the first inning, Wong put the team on the board with a two-run triple in the fourth. The two extra-base hits come one game after slugging a walkoff home run to give his team a Game 2 win. Wong has hit .238/.273/.714 with two home runs and five RBI in 21 postseason at-bats.


Marlins' Jordany Valdespin sent to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Marlins infielder Jordany Valdespin has been outrighted to Triple-A.

Valdespin didn't perform well over the second half with the club. He's been with both the Mets and Marlins in his four year career. 


Infielder Ed Lucas picked up by Rangers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) The Rangers have announced that they have claimed infielder Ed Lucas off waivers from Miami.

Lucas completed 2014 with a stat line of .251/.283/.296. He struggled to make consistent contact, fanning 48 times in just 179 at-bats.


Nationals 2B Asdrubal Cabrera: I want to stay in Washington


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Nationals second baseman and soon-to-be free agent Asdrubal Cabrera is hoping to stick around in the nation's capital.

"I really enjoy it to play with this team," he told the Washington Post. "Great guys. Good front office. I was really happy to be here and in this moment with the team."

Cabrera was traded from Cleveland to Washington with just two months remaining on his contract and was moved from shortstop to second. He could receive strong consideration in a thin free agent class for shortstops headlined by Hanley Ramirez and Jed Lowrie. He also proved steady at second base, though he has little range at either middle infield position. And the Yankees will be seeking a new shortstop to replace retired Derek Jeter.

The presence of Ian Desmond would prevent Cabrera from moving back to short if he remains with the Nationals.


Joe Panik scores final run on wild pitch in series-clinching win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Giants second baseman Joe Panik went 2 for 4 with an RBI Tuesday and scored the final run of his team's 3-2 NLDS-clinching win on a wild pitch.

Panik, who also drove in a run on a groundout in the second inning, reached base in the seventh on a one-out single, and after the bases were loaded by another single and a walk, he dashed 90 feet on a ball that got by the catcher to put the Giants up for good. The pitcher then uncorked another wild pitch while trying to intentionally walk the man at the plate, and the new lead runner was gunned down trying to extend the lead.

Panik was just 0 for 10 in his previous two games after opening the postseason with two multihit performances. He and the Giants will face the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.


Nationals' Matt Williams, Asdrubal Cabrera get tossed in Game 2


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Nationals manager Matt Williams and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera were both ejected in Game 2 of the NLDS against the Giants.

Cabrera got ejected for arguing a strike 3 call by home plate umpire Vic Carapazza in the 10th inning. Williams argued the call and was ejected immediately after. Cabrera doubled in the third inning and scored the only run of the night for the Nationals thus far. He has two hits in his first eight postseason at-bats.


Dee Gordon goes 0 for 5 in return to lineup Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Dodgers second baseman Dee Gordon returned to the lineup Friday, going 0 for 5 with a walk and an RBI in his team's 10-9 loss to the Cardinals in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.

Gordon left the penultimate game of the regular season with hip irritation and did not play in the season finale. His ninth-inning RBI groundout reduced his team's deficit to one run, but the Dodgers couldn't scrape together the game-tying run before running out of outs. Gordon hit .289/.326/.378 with two home runs, 34 RBI and a major-league-leading 64 stolen bases in 609 at-bats.


Asdrubal Cabrera goes deep in loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Nationals infielder Asdrubal Cabrera went yard in the team's loss Friday.

Cabrera struck in the seventh inning. With the bases empty, he took a 97 mph fastball out to right field for the solo shot. Cabrera made it a one-run game for Washington, but they couldn't mount a full comeback. Cabrera finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and one RBI. 


Joe Panik delivers three hits in wild-card win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/1/2014) Giants second baseman Joe Panik enjoyed a fantastic postseason debut Wednesday, going 3 for 5 in his team's 8-0 wild-card win over the Pirates.

Panik plugged a hole in the infield in the middle of the season, hitting .305/.343/.368 in 269 at-bats during the regular season. He figures to continue to occupy the second spot of the lineup in the National League Division Series, starting with Game 1 Friday in Washington.
