Manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Lincecum threw a bullpen session Sunday and it went well.

The bullpen session was to keep Lincecum's arm fresh for the World Series. He is not expected to start in any of the games during the World Series, instead, the Giants will use him as a reliever.

OF Jon Jay will have his wrist scoped this week. The recovery time is expected to be 6-to-8 weeks.

The goal is to make sure Jon Jay is ready for the start of spring training. The typical rehab for such a procedure takes 6-8 weeks. He batted .303 with a .372 on-base percentage in 140 games this season for St. Louis and should open 2015 as the Cardinals' primary center fielder.

Adam Wainwright's elbow was examined on Friday. The Cardinals were optimistic about the results of the exam and he "should have a normal offseason".

There was likely plenty of tension in St. Louis as the Cardinals fell to the Giants and concerns were growing regarding Wainwright's elbow. It sounds as if everything is fine for right now but this is certainly something to keep in mind when plotting a draft strategy for next year.

Taijuan Walker has decided to not pitch again for the rest of the offseason.

After having thrown 120.1 innings at four different levels in 2014, Walker is likely to log a total of 30 innings at the Arizona Fall League and then shut it down to preserve his arm. His number in the majors weren't completely overwhelming but they were more than just solid. He's shown stronger command and produced a nice uptick in K-rate in the AFL and he's going to be a highly-coveted commodity in fantasy leagues next season.

Red Sox could make Yoenis Cespedes available in a trade. He will earn $10.2 million in the final year of his deal. 

If Boston were to keep him, Cespedes would most likely slot somewhere into the middle of the Boston line up. Cespedes hit .260 with 22 home runs, and 100 RBIs in 2014. It was the first time in his career he reached 100 RBIs in a single season.

Red Sox have began preliminary talks with Koji Uehara about staying in Boston.

It is still unsure whether he will stay or not, but the discussions have at least begun. Uehara enjoyed a great two year run in Boston, but he lost his closer job this season. Uehara had a 6-5 record with 26 saves and a 2.52 ERA in 2014.

Red Sox have hired Chili Davis as hitting coach.

The Red Sox will look to the expertise of Davis to help with their offense. Davis was .274 career hitter with 350 home runs, and 1,372 RBIs. Davis enjoyed a 19-year career in the big leagues.

Madison Bumgarner will start Game 1 of the World Series.

Mad-Bum has been sensational during the postseason by allowing only five earned runs in 22.2 innings pitched (three starts). This will also give him the opportunity to start in game five, if the series last that long.
