Tim Lincecum felt his back tighten up on his second-to-last pitch Wednesday night. He will receive treatment Thursday.

Lincecum tossed 1.2 scoreless innings, striking out two. He is unlikely to pitch in a close game unless it goes to extra innings, though it would hurt San Francisco's bullpen depth if Lincecum is unavailable.

Kelvin Herrera received the victory after pitching 1.2 shutout innings where he allowed two walks and struck out one batter in game two of the World Series.

Herrera was the pitcher of decision for the Royals as he was pitching when his Royals broke the game open in the five run bottom of the six inning. Herrera is a part of the dominant three headed monster that is the back-end of the Kansas City bullpen.

Yordano Ventura allowed eight hits, two earned runs, and struck out two batters in 5.1 innings of work in a Kansas City victory over the Giants in game two of the World Series.

After allowing a leadoff home run to start the game, Ventura settled down for the most part. It wasn't a typically Ventura-like outing, but he pitched well enough to keep Kansas City into the game. He will look to be more dominant in his next start of the series.

Billy Butler went 2-for-3 with two RBIs in a game two victory over the Giants.

Butler tallied his two RBIs during the five run sixth inning for Kansas City. Butler's single scored Lorenzo Cain, and was the first strike of the inning. Butler is an important part to the Royals' success and he is delivering for them right now.

Omar Infante went 2-for-3 with a home run, a double, two RBIs, and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the Giants.

Omar Infante's home run came in the 6th inning and it plated Salvador Perez. His home run traveled 406 feet, and came off of Hunter Strickland. The home run led to some controversy between the two teams, but nothing major resulted of it.

Jake Peavy received the loss in game two of the World Series after pitching five innings where he allowed six hits, four earned runs, two walks, and struck out one batter.

Peavy is yet another pitcher to be beaten by the Kansas City Royals this off season. He allowed six hits and four earned runs in five innings. Peavy only threw 66 pitches in the outing so he should be well rested for his next start later in the series.

Gregor Blanco went 1-for-4 with a leadoff home run and a walk in a 7-2 loss to the Kansas City Royals in game two of the World Series.

Blanco led off game two with a home run, but the Giants were only able to get one more player across the plate the rest of the game. Blanco is hitting .286 this postseason after hitting .260 during the regular season.

Tim Lincecum is leaving the game with an apparent injury.

The injury to Lincecum is worthy of monitoring as the Giants would like to have him available to pitch during the World Series. In the regular season, Lincecum was 12-9 with a 4.74 ERA.

Indians are expected to exercise their $3.5 million option on Mike Aviles.

Aviles hit .247 with five home runs, 39 RBIs, and 14 stolen bases in 2014 for the Cleveland Indians. While a starting spot isn't guaranteed, he is a very flexible player who has the ability to play multiple positions for the Indians in 2015.

Phillies signed catcher John Hester to a minor league deal.

Hester has spent the past few season in the Diamondbacks organization but holds no fantasy relevance.
