Royals Jeremy Guthrie gets the loss in Game 7


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Royals pitcher Jeremy Guthrie picked up the loss Wednesday in Game 7 against the Giants.

Guthrie allowed three runs on four hits over 3 1/3 innings. He struck out three and did not issue any walks during the performance. Manager Ned Yost had a quick hook with the season on the line, leading to Guthrie getting pulled despite a low pitch count. After putting two men on base to start the fourth, Guthrie was replaced by Kelvin Herrera. Herrera would allow a run-scoring single to Michael Morse. That run would be charged to Guthrie, ultimately sticking him with the loss. 


Red Sox to target Pablo Sandoval, Chase Headley


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Red Sox will target Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley this offseason, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

Both players are set to be free-agents, though both could opt to remain in their current organizations. Boston would have interest in Aramis Ramirez if he's made available, but it's believed Ramirez will stay with Milwaukee. Will Middlebrooks hit just .191 over 215 injury-riddled at-bats last season. 


Angels' Tony Campana elects free agency


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Angels outfielder Tony Campana has elected free agency, according to SBNation.

Campana was outrighted by the club, but declined the assignment. He'll look to hook on with another team during the offseason. Campana hit .187 over 75 at-bats last year. 


Orioles outright Evan Meek to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) The Orioles have outrighted pitcher Evan Meek to Triple-A, according to MASN.

The move frees up a spot on the team's 40-man roster. Meek posted a 5.79 ERA over 23 1/3 innings last season. 


Justin Smoak expects to renegotiate deal with Blue Jays


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) Blue Jays first baseman Justin Smoak expects the club to decline his option, according to Sportsnet. 

Smoak is owed $3.65 million next season, but believes Toronto will decline that deal. The two sides will then renegotiate a new figure for the upcoming season. Smoak hit .202/.275/.339 over 248 at-bats with Seattle last season. 


Royals 3B Mike Moustakas homers in Game 6 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas went 2 for 4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in his team's 10-0 skewering of the Giants in Game 6 of the World Series Tuesday.

Moustakas kicked off a seven-run second inning by driving home a run with a double. He then capped off the offensive explosion with a solo blast in the seventh inning. It was Moustakas' fifth postseason home run, but he's been very quiet over the past two weeks, collecting just three hits in 23 at-bats over his previous seven games before delivering a big performance Tuesday. The two teams both head into Wednesday's Game 7 needing just one more win to take home a title.


Royals SP Yordano Ventura goes seven innings in Game 6 shutout


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Royals pitcher Yordano Ventura picked up the win Tuesday, giving up three hits and five walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 10-0 victory over the Giants in Game 6 of the World Series.

The Royals pulled the series even at 3-3 behind a seven-run second inning on offense and the effective wildness of the rookie Ventura (1-0), who walked the bases loaded with one out in the third inning but induced a ground-ball double play to escape unscathed. The Royals have won all five playoff games in which Ventura has pitched, though this is his first decision recorded. The two teams head to Wednesday for a decisive Game 7 in Kansas City.


Heyman: Pablo Sandoval, Chase Headley on Red Sox wish list


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) The Red Sox are prioritizing Pablo Sandoval and Chase Headley in the team's search for a third baseman, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

Boston is looking to improve at the position after Will Middlebrooks struggled in 2014. Both Sandoval and Headley will be free agents this offseason, but their respective organizations both have interest in re-signing them. The Red Sox could also take a look at Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez if he reaches free agency.


Heyman: Royals thought unlikely to pick up Billy Butler's option


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) The Royals are thought unlikely to pick up the $12-million option on designated hitter Billy Butler, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

Butler hit .271 with nine home runs and 66 RBI during the regular season. The team may get away from having a full-time designated hitter next year and rather have increased versatility on the roster.


Heyman: Royals could target Torii Hunter this offseason


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) The Royals could target outfielder Torii Hunter this offseason, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reports.

The Royals are unlikely to bring back designated hitter Billy Butler, who has a $12-million option, and impending free-agent outfielder Norichika Aoki next season. The Royals "quietly made a play" for Hunter seven years ago and may do so again. He hit .286 with a .765 OPS in 2014 while racking up 17 home runs and 83 RBI.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
