Cubs' Tommy La Stella: Not on NLCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/15/2016) La Stella was removed from the NLCS roster in an effort to counter the Dodgers lineup, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

The Cubs opted to bump La Stella in favor of the left-handed Rob Zastryzny. It appears the Cubs wanted another southpaw available to matchup with the Dodgers' left-handed heavy lineup.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/11/2016) Nunez (hamstring) is not in the lineup Tuesday for Game 4 of the Giants' NLDS matchup with the Cubs.

Nunez was able to pinch hit Monday for the third time in three games, but he is apparently still not feeling good enough to play a full nine innings. Conor Gillaspie will get another start at third base Tuesday night.

Mets' Jose Reyes: Possible super-utility role in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/11/2016) Reyes may fill a super-utility role, similar to Ben Zobrist, with the Mets next season, the NY Post reports.

The Mets hold a 2017 option on Reyes, which they are likely to exercise. Reyes mostly played third base this year with David Wright sidelined due to his injury. Next season, Reyes could see time at third, short, second and left field to maximize the number of games he is on the field and his usefulness to the Mets.

Cubs' Javier Baez: Plays hero in Game 1 victory
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/8/2016) Baez went 2-for-3 with a home run in a victory over the Giants in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday.

Only one run was scored in the game, and it came on Baez's home run in the bottom of the eighth. He slashed a modest .273/.314/.423 in 421 at-bats this year, but for one day at least he's the most famous man in Chicago.

Mets' Wilmer Flores: Successfully undergoes surgery Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2016) Flores successfully underwent surgery Friday to remove part of the hamate bone in his right wrist, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Thankfully for Flores, he's expected to be ready to go far before the start of spring training, so unless his rehabilitation hits some roadblocks, he should be ready to go for 2017. The 25-year-old will likely continue his role as a super utility sub next season.

Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Makes NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/7/2016) Nunez (hamstring) is on the team's NLDS roster, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy had already stated that Nunez would not be ready in time for Friday's Game 1, but his inclusion on the roster indicates the team expects to have him ready at some point in the series. Conor Gillaspie, who played the hero in San Francisco's Wild Card game, figures to continue filling in at third base until Nunez's hamstring injury subsides enough to return.

Giants' Eduardo Nunez: Will not start Game 1 of NLDS
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/6/2016) Manager Bruce Bochy said Thursday that Nunez (hamstring) will not be ready for Game 1 of the NLDS against the Cubs, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Nunez was unable to play in the Giants' Wild Card win over the Mets due to a hamstring issue, and it's clear that the ailment is still bothering as he will not start Friday. Bochy noted that Nunez could still wind up on the NLDS roster, but added that no formal decision has been made. A further update on Nunez's status figures to be made available once the Giants release their roster, but look for Conor Gillaspie to start at third base for at least Game 1.

Mets' David Wright: Intends to be ready for spring training
by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/5/2016) Wright (neck) believes he will be ready to go for spring training, James Wagner of the New York Times reports.

Wright underwent a cervical disectomy and fusion surgery in June that left his status for the remainder of 2016 in doubt. He was eventually moved to the 60-day DL and missed the remainder of the season but the veteran appears confident he will return to the diamond for the start of 2017. However, Wright has played just 75 games combined between 2015 and 2016, making him a risky bet in fantasy leagues even if he's a go t begin the campaign

by RotoWire Staff | Special to
(10/5/2016) Flores will have surgery later this week to remove the hook of the hamate bone in the base of his right hand, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

It was thought that Flores was simply dealing with a significant bone bruise, but it will end up requiring surgery. While he has been ruled out for the postseason, it sounds like Flores will have no trouble returning in time for the start of spring training.
