Michael Morse played sick on Friday, but he is feeling much better.

Morse has been dealing with an illness, but it doesn't seem to be too bad. He was able to tough it out for game three, and will look to do the same if he is called upon as a pinch hitter in game four.

Juan Perez is starting in left field for Game 4.

Perez is 2-16 in the postseason this year, but the Giants will go with him over Travis Ishikawa at left field, as San Francisco prefers his glove compared to Ishikawa's. He'll bat seventh in the order.

Jeurys Familia underwent surgery for bilateral sports hernias on Friday.

Familia should be ready for spring training, He was a valuable part of the Mets' bullpen, notching five saves and 23 holds in 76 games, with a 2.21 ERA and 1.18 WHIP.

Astros OF Dexter Fowler has accepted an invitation to join MLB All-Stars in Japan next month.

Really? He is an All-Star? .276 average with eight HR and 11 steals does not scream All-Star to me. Fine middle of the draft player, sure, but All-Star? No way.

David Wright (shoulder) told NJ Advance Media that his rehab is going well. "No setbacks, we're moving forward," Wright said. "That's all you can ask."

Wright can be a good option at third for fantasy owners, but you have to be well protected when he goes DL. It would be nice if he could move to a team with a better home ballpark to maximize his power potential, but ya gotta take the cards dealth ya. If he's healthy come 2015, I like him for average and HRs, not so much for steals any longer.

Lee is expected to begin a full throwing program in November and is on track to be ready for spring training.

Lee is getting on in years, sure, but if he is healthy, he is a top 25 SP. The Phillies need him back to build on their 2014 season, badly. Of course, that could be the description of their 2014 season, played badly for the most part.

Royals have designated pitcher Liam Hendriks for assignment.

Just a little 40-man roster clean-up while they're competing in the World Series. Hendriks has a career 5.92 ERA in the majors and doesn't really look like he's going to improve on that too much. He'll probably opt for free agency rather than accept the assignment.

Pirates designated RHP Jeanmar Gomez for assignment.

Gomez posted a 3.19 ERA over 62 innings of relief for the Pirates. He wasn't much on the strikeout front, but he did post an adequate ground ball rate and kept the ball in the park for the most part. He may refuse the assignment and opt for free agency, but the Pirates wouldn't be a bad place for him to call home either.

Pirates designated RHP John Axford for assignment.

The Pirates added Axford with the hope of building their bullpen for a potential playoff run. But they had no expectation of keeping him on unless he turned his season around. He'll likely refuse the assignment and opt for free agency.

Pirates activated RHP Charlie Morton from the 60-Day disabled list.

Morton was having himself another fairly decent season, but landed on the disabled list with a hip issue and ultimately had surgery to repair the labrum in his right hip. He'll continue to rehab over the winter and will return to Pirates spring training to compete for a rotation spot once again.
