T. Stokes Jr. - LF
Tigers activated OF Troy Stokes from the 45-day injured list.
Stokes did not appear in a meaningful game in 2020 after suffering a fractured hamate bone in June, before the start of summer camp workouts. The 24-year-old outfielder registered a .233/.341/.385 batting line with nine home runs and 14 stolen bases over 95 games with the Triple-A affiliate of the Brewers in 2019.

J. Jones - CF
Tigers activated OF JaCoby Jones from the 45-day injured list.
Jones suffered a fractured left hand on September 1 and did not return to action. The 28-year-old finished the condensed 2020 campaign with an encouraging .849 OPS, five home runs, nine doubles, 14 RBI, and 19 runs scored in 30 games played for Detroit. He should have a starting job in the outfield going into 2021.

Marlins exercised OF Starling Marte's $12.5 million club option for 2021.
Marlins CEO Derek Jeter made it known earlier this month that the team would pick up the option, and that decision has now been made official the morning after the conclusion of the 2020 World Series. Marte, 32, slashed .281/.340/.430 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 10 stolen bases, and 36 runs scored in 61 regular-season games this summer between Arizona and Miami. He missed the NLDS against the Braves after fracturing a finger on his left hand during the Wild Card Series versus the Cubs, but he should have a relatively normal offseason and currently projects as the starting center fielder for the Fish on Opening Day next year.

Ken Rosenthal said on FS1 late Tuesday that Justin Turner (COVID-19) "insisted upon" being part of the Dodgers' World Series clinching celebration.
Turner was pulled before the eighth inning of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 win when the Dodgers were alerted that the veteran third baseman had tested positive for COVID-19, but he joined his teammates on the field 20-30 minutes after the final out and even took part in a team photo on the mound. The transcribed television report from Rosenthal: "My understanding from various people is that he was told not to go on the field, or asked not to go on the field. He insisted upon it, the Dodgers insisted upon it, and that is why he was out there. And at one point, he did have his mask off. He was mostly masked, but there was a point during the picture that he did take it off." Rosenthal also stated that "this is not a case of a false positive."

Justin Turner said on his personal Twitter account late Tuesday night that he has "no symptoms at all" following a positive COVID-19 test.
Turner played the first seven innings of Tuesday night's World Series Game 6 clincher before the Dodgers were alerted about the positive test result and pulled him for Edwin Rios. Turner spent the final two innings isolated but then curiously popped out to participate in a celebratory team photo on the mound, at one point scooting closer to his teammates and removing his mask. Perhaps there was a negative test at some point between the seventh inning and the awarding of the World Series trophy, but that seems ... well ... highly unlikely.

Tony Gonsolin lasted just 1 2/3 innings in his World Series Game 6 start on Tuesday versus the Rays.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Monday that he was hoping to get 5-6 innings out of Gonsolin, but the quick hook came after the 26-year-old right-hander recorded only five outs against the 10 total batters he faced. Tampa Bay mostly failed to capitalize, however, with Randy Arozarena's first-inning solo homer serving as the club's only run of the affair. Los Angeles went on to claim its first World Series title since 1988, and Gonsolin's poor showing will barely even be a footnote. He allowed just seven walks and two home runs in 46 2/3 regular-season innings before yielding nine walks and four homers in 9 1/3 postseason frames.

R. Arozarena - LF
Randy Arozarena finished 2-for-4 with a homer and a single Tuesday in the Rays' World Series Game 6 loss to the Dodgers.
Arozarena belted an opposite-field solo shot off a Tony Gonsolin slider in the top of the first inning to give the Rays their lone run of the night. It was his MLB-record-extending 10th home run of the postseason and sailed 378 feet out to right with an exit velocity of 103 mph. It was also his 14th extra-base hit of these playoff games, tying David Freese's record set in 2011. He's the first rookie ever to drive in a run in four straight World Series games. In the end, though, the Game 6 loss represented the end of the road in 2020 for Randy and the Rays.

Corey Seager was named MVP of the 2020 World Series.
Seager went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI fielder's choice grounder in Tuesday night's Game 6 clincher, finishing the series 8-for-20 with two home runs, five RBI, six walks, and seven runs scored. He also won the 2020 NLCS MVP and is now the eighth player in MLB history to earn a League Championship Series MVP and World Series MVP in the same postseason. The others: 2014 Madison Bumgarner, 2011 David Freese, 2008 Cole Hamels, 1997 Livan Hernandez, 1988 Orel Hershiser, 1982 Darrell Porter, and 1979 Willie Stargell.
