Adam Wainwright underwent surgery Friday to remove bone chips in his right elbow, after seeking a second opinion this week in St. Louis.

The procedure was considered both necessary and minor. Wainwright should come out on top form this and will be ready to go for spring training. We'll track his progress through the offseason and see how he comes back, but it's tough to imagine ranking him outside of the top-five fantasy hurlers.

Rusney Castillo is getting his bruised hand/wrist checked out Friday, but  the Red Sox still don't believe it's serious. 

He'll continue to be evaluated, but with no breaks or fractures to worry about, it looks like rest will be the answer here. He should be just fine for spring training in 2015.

Michael Morse is not in the Giants Game 3 lineup on Friday.

Morse had been serving as the DH for the Giants while the Series was in Kansas City. Coming back to San Francisco though, it looks like the Giants will stick with their same outfield configuration.

Norichika Aoki is not in the Royals Game 3 lineup on Friday.

Aoki will take a seat on the bench with Lorenzo Cain moving over to right field and Jarrod Dyson taking over in center. Given the dimensions at AT&T Park and how tricky right field plays and how Aoki has struggled defensively through the first two games, Cain and Dyson seem to be a much more reliable tandem.

Billy Butler is not in the Royals starting lineup for Game 3 on Friday.

With the Series moving to San Francisco, there is no designated hitter. Butler will take a seat with Eric Hosmer staying over at first base. Country Breakfast will still be a valuable right-handed bat off the bench.

Orioles announced they've outrighted right-handed pitcher Steve Johnson to Triple-A Norfolk.

Johnson dealt with injuries last year and rehabbed through the entire Orioles system which culminated in 38 very mediocre innings at Triple-A. He'll stay down there until he can regain both his command and velocity. Fantasy owners need not bother.

Manager Joe Maddon has exercised an opt-out clause in his contract and is leaving the Tampa Bay Rays immediately.

First Andrew Friedman resigns his position and takes a job with the Dodgers and now Maddon jumps ship. Early speculation says that Don Mattingly might be looking for work soon.

Tigers announced that Miguel Cabrera underwent surgery, not just for bone spurs in ankle but also for a stress fracture in the navicular bone at top of his foot.

The bone spurs were a known problem for Cabrera as they hindered him throughout the second half of the 2014 season. However, the stress fracture is a recent development and that's going to complicate the recovery. Following the procedure, they announced that he would be re-evaluated in three months which means his level of activity until January is going to be extremely limited. If all checks out, then he'll be able to increase his workouts, but this all pushes very close to spring training. It's very possible that he misses some time this spring.
