Avilan -- who threw 20 pitches in his simulated outing -- cleared the final hurdle in his shoulder rehabilitation program and is ready to rejoin the Dodgers' active roster. He'll likely be added to the team's NLCS roster prior to Saturday's Game 1 matchup against the Cubs or Nationals.

Avilan missed the NLDS because of a sore shoulder, but if he's able to get through Wednesday's simulated outing with no issues, he could be added to the Dodgers' roster for the NLCS. The 28-year-old owns a 2.93 ERA and 52:22 K:BB through 46 innings of relief this season.

Wooten accrued a disappointing 6.94 ERA across 23.1 innings at Triple-A Louisville in 2017. He will provide the Reds with Triple-A depth, and could surface once again in the major leagues with a productive year in 2018. The 32-year-old owns a 5.03 ERA across 68 innings at the big-league level.


Cubs' Hector Rondon: Left off NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/6/2017) Rondon is not on the active roster for the NLDS against Washington, Mark Gonzales of The Chicago Tribune reports.

Rondon could be added back onto the roster for the NLCS, were the Cubs to advance past this round, but he will be unavailable for the club's series against the Nationals. Over the course of the 2017 season, Rondon has posted a 4.24 ERA and 1.22 WHIP during 57.1 innings of relief work.


Dodgers' Luis Avilan: To face live hitters Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2017) Avilan (shoulder) is expected to face live hitters Thursday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Avilan fired a successful bullpen session Tuesday and is set to throw again two days later. He's already been ruled out for the NLDS, but he could possibly return next week if the Dodgers advance to the NLCS.


Diamondbacks' Archie Bradley: Struggles on mound, but drives in two Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(10/5/2017) Bradley was tagged for two runs on back-to-back home runs and gave up three hits in total while covering 1.1 innings and gathering a hold Wednesday in the Diamondbacks' 11-8 win over the Rockies in the National League wild-card game.

After retiring the Rockies' final batter of the seventh inning, Bradley stayed in the contest to make a rare pinch-hitting appearance, and was able to come through with a critical, two-out, two-run triple to give the Snakes some breathing room. He would go on to give back both runs in the bottom half of the eighth inning, but was ultimately able to escape the frame with the Diamondbacks clinging to a lead. Despite his shaky outing, Bradley is still regarded as manager Torey Lovullo's go-to relief ace, so expect the 25-year-old to routinely cover multiple innings in high-leverage spots when needed throughout the Diamondbacks' postseason run.
