James Paxton will not pitch in the Arizona Fall League as expected.

Paxton saw his rookie season put on hold after getting injured after his second start. He came off the DL in early August and had just one start where he allowed three or more runs just twice over his final 11 starts. He finished the 2014 season going 6-4 with a 3.04 ERA and 1.20 WHIP and should have no problem locking down a spot in the Mariners rotation next season.

Michael Morse is unlikely to be on the wild card roster.

Morse missed all but one game in September with an oblique injury which is likely what will be keeping him off the Giants Wild Card Roster.

Taijuan Walker will throw 30 innings in the Arizona fall league. 

He missed most of this season with an injury, which limited the amount of innings he threw. This will improve his game by getting him extra experience before spring training starts.

Dustin Ackley will be seeing a specialist for his ankle, but doesn't feel surgery is likely.

His ankle was giving him problems the last month of the season, which caused him to miss games. He had a pretty good season and will be a nice sleeper pick in fantasy drafts next season.

Eric O'Flaherty (elbow) tried throwing Monday and didn't feel completely comfortable. 

He's a LOOGY type of relief pitcher and is a great weapon to have out of the bullpen. However, it looks unlikely that he will be ready to pitch in the postseason.

Javier Baez is likely to be the Cubs starting second basemen in 2015.

That decision seemed obvious when the Cubs released Darwin Barney when they called up Baez from the minor leagues earlier this season. He has amazing power for a middle infielder, but also strikes out a lot. The Cubs have the best group of young players in the major leagues that will HOPEFULLY make them a great baseball team for years to come.

Angels hitting coach Don Baylor said Josh Hamilton looks "ready" for ALDS after his batting practice session. His swings were free and easy, without any restrictions.

The Angels were very cautious with Hamilton during the last month of the regular season so he would be healthy for the postseason. It looks like they made the right moves because Hamilton is going be ready for the ALDS and the Angels desperately need his bat in the lineup.
