Reds pitcher Trevor Bell elects free agency


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Reds pitcher Trevor Bell has elected to become a free-agent.

Bell pitched just two-thirds of an inning in the majors last season due to elbow inflammation. He'll seek a deal with another club during the offseason.


Cardinals may not be able to keep Pat Neshek


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Cardinals reliever Pat Neshek may have to test the open market this winter, according to MLB.com.

After his performance last season, there's a sense that Neshek has priced himself out of St. Louis' bullpen. Neshek was exceptional with the club, posting a 1.87 ERA over 67 1/3 innings. The performance earned him a trip to the All-Star Game. The team will likely attempt to re-sign Neshek, but there's a sense he can get a more lucrative deal elsewhere. 


Report: Nationals unlikely to pick up option on RP Soriano


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) The Nationals will probably decline to exercise their $14 million option on former closer Rafael Soriano, who saved 75 games over the past two seasons, the Washington Post reported.

Soriano performed well in the first half of this season before a collapse forced the team to replace him in that role with Drew Storen.


Giants RP Santiago Casilla strikes out two in Game 4 save


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants closer Santiago Casilla picked up a save Wednesday, giving up one hit and striking out two in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 6-4 Game 4 win over the Cardinals and give the Giants a 3-1 series lead.

Casilla threw 13 of his 16 pitches for strikes, and even though he allowed his first hit of the postseason, he was able to get the job done and put the Giants one more win away from a World Series trip. Casilla has delivered six scoreless innings while striking out five and walking one this postseason.


Giants RP Yusmeiro Petit earns Game 4 NLCS win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Giants reliever Yusmeiro Petit picked up the win in Game 4 of the NLCS Wednesday, allowing just one hit and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 6-4 victory over the Cardinals.

Petit (2-0) won his first postseason appearance in the previous round, stringing together six scoreless innings in his team's 18-inning win over the Nationals. He was just as impressive in a shorter outing Wednesday, cleaning up after starter Ryan Vogelsong lasted just three innings. The Giants head into Wednesday's Game 5 with a 3-1 lead and three chances to advance to the World Series.


Cardinals RP Randy Choate takes loss in Game 3 of NLCS


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Cardinals relief pitcher Randy Choate was stuck with a loss Tuesday, giving up a run on a hit and a walk while not recording an out in his team's 5-4, 10-inning defeat against the Giants in Game 3 of the NLCS.

Choate (0-1) began the bottom of the 10th inning with a walk before surrendering a single, putting the potential winning run in scoring position with no outs. He then airmailed a throw to first base on an attempted sacrifice to bring the lead runner around to score on a walkoff error. The Cardinals will be looking to even the series Wednesday in Game 4.


Jean Machi suffers minor finger injury, available for Game 3


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Giants pitcher Jean Machi sustained a torn fingernail on his right pinkie while playing catch Monday, but the injury is not expected to prevent him from pitching in Game 3 of the NLCS Tuesday if needed, MLB.com reports.

Machi made a team-high 71 appearances in the regular season. He has posted a 7.71 ERA in three postseason appearances, which includes surrendering a home run in Game 2 Sunday.


Matheny: Trevor Rosenthal 'still our closer'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said Monday that pitcher Trevor Rosenthal "is still our closer," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Rosenthal blew a save opportunity in Game 2 of the NLCS Sunday, allowing one earned run on two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning, but the Cardinals were able to secure a victory anyway with a walkoff home run in the bottom of the ninth. He has surrendered two earned runs on seven hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings this postseason, though Sunday's blown save was his first during the playoffs.


Giants' Santiago Casilla closes it out Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) Giants closer Santiago Casilla picked up the save Saturday against the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLCS.

Casilla made quick work of St. Louis, facing just three batters. He turned in a perfect inning, picking up two groundouts and a flyout. Casilla threw 12 pitches, 10 of which were strikes.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Dodgers short man Brian Wilson to stick around in 2015


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Short reliever Brian Wilson has informed the Dodgers that he will exercise his player option for the 2015 season, per MLBDailyDish.com.

The former lights-out San Francisco closer performed well after mid-August. He yielded earned runs just twice in his last 29 games, including his one playoff appearance. But he still finished the season with a disappointing 4.66 ERA and 29 walks in 48 1/3 innings.


Santiago Casilla picks up second NLDS save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Giants closer Santiago Casilla pitched a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday to earn his second NLDS save as the Giants advanced to the next round with a 3-2 Game 4 win over the Nationals.

Casilla opened the ninth with a flyout and strikeout but lost a battle to Bryce Harper when he issued a walk on a full count to extend the game. The free pass didn't hurt him, as he induced a groundball from the next batter to seal the series. Casilla has delivered three scoreless innings during the postseason. The Giants are slated to square off with the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.


Hunter Strickland serves up home run, picks up Game 4 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland picked up a win in his team's Game 4 clincher over the Nationals despite surrendering a game-tying home run, as the Giants went on to claim a 3-2 victory Tuesday and a 3-1 series victory in the NLDS.

Strickland (1-0) surrendered a one-out solo shot to Bryce Harper to erase a 2-1 lead then immediately gave up a single to put the go-ahead run on base. He was able to strike out the next batter and pick up a third out on a flyball to left. Strickland pitched three innings in the NLDS and surrendered three solo home runs, but he also picked up a save in the 18-inning Game 2 marathon. The Giants advance to the National League Championship Series to face the Cardinals.


Matt Thornton takes Game 4 loss, Nationals eliminated


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Nationals pitcher Matt Thornton took the loss in Game 4 of the NLDS Tuesday, giving up an earned run on two hits while recording one out in the 3-2 defeat against the Giants that eliminated the Nationals from the playoffs.

Thornton (0-1) followed up a bunt groundout to start the seventh inning by giving up two singles and being pulled from the game. He tossed just five pitches to the three batters he faced. Thornton was put in line for a loss after a walk and a wild pitch brought the lead runner home to break a 2-2 tie. It was Thornton's first earned run in 2 1/3 innings over three postseason appearances.


Trevor Rosenthal earns third NLDS save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/7/2014) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal picked up his third save in the team's 3-2 NLDS-clinching win over the Dodgers in Game 4 Tuesday.

Rosenthal gave up a hit and a walk in the ninth inning Tuesday but was able to strand both runners by inducing a game-ending groundball to the second baseman. He gave up one earned run in three innings over his three NLDS appearances, striking out four and walking one. The Cardinals head to the National League Championship Series to face the winner of the Giants-Nationals series.

Trevor Rosenthal allows run in Game 1 save


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal gave up one earned run on two hits Friday but struck out two and picked up a save in his team's 10-9 Game 1 victory over the Dodgers in the National League Division Series.

Rosenthal struck out the first batter in the ninth inning but then allowed a single and a double to put the potential tying run on second base. After a groundout brought home a run and advanced the potential tying run to third, the closer slammed the door by striking out Yasiel Puig. Rosenthal came into the postseason with four career saves in the playoffs, all coming in 2013. His earned run was the first he allowed in 21 1/3 postseason innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Giants pitcher Hunter Strickland surrendered two solo home runs Friday, but the Giants were able to hang on for a 3-2 win over the Nationals in Game 1 of the National League Division Series.

Strickland stranded the bases loaded with a strikeout to end the bottom of the sixth, but he wasn't as effective in the seventh, surrendering a monster leadoff home run to Bryce Harper and another blast to Asdrubal Cabrera after striking out a batter in the inning. He was able to retire the next batter on a flyball before being removed, and the rest of the bullpen held the Nationals scoreless to take Game 1 on the road. The two teams will meet again Saturday in Washington.


Cardinals' Kevin Siegrist dealing with muscle tears in left hand


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Cardinals pitcher Kevin Siegrist underwent an MRI on his left arm, which revealed muscle tears in his hand and inflammation throughout the forearm, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Siegrist, who was left off the NLDS roster, is expected to rehab and work on strengthening his arm while his team takes on the Dodgers, in hopes of returning down the stretch in the postseason should the Cardinals make a deep run.

Siegrist was sidelined for approximately two months earlier in the season because of a similar issue. He went 0-1 with a 6.82 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP over 30 1/3 innings of relief this season.

"It explains why I had problems with command," he said.
