Although he proclaimed that he wouldn't, the financial opportunity is far too great for Cespedes to pass up. He has performed far beyond his expectations over the past two seasons and is certainly worthy of a contract negotiation.

Miller has been over-used thus far in the postseason, so this news should not come as much of a surprise. Considering he threw 46 pitches in Game 1 of the World Series, expect the Indians to try and avoid using him to keep his fresh for the rest of the series.

This should come at no surprise after the Indians' ace hurled six-plus scoreless innings on Tuesday, needing only 88 pitches to get the Game 1 win. Although he was never asked to start on short-rest in the regular season, things have changed in October, as this will mark the second time this postseason he was slated to take the mound on short-rest.

Santana, who is no stranger to hitting leadoff, will be hitting first today against Jake Arrieta, against whom he is 1-for-3 in his career with a three-run home run. Santana appeared to have injured his leg during last night's game but it doesn't appear to have been too serious despite causing a two-minute delay in the game.

Barrett was put on waivers earlier this week by the Nationals and he ended up clearing waivers, and he elected to become a free agent rather than stay in the Nationals organization.

If he's fully healthy he should have no trouble latching on with a team for the 2017 season.

The Red Sox brought their prospect up in September to let him see what MLB pitching was all about. The idea after that was to get him significant playing time against the players in the AFL, but that is now on hold. Hopefully, his thumb injury is just minor and will allow him to play later in Arizona and get more experience.
