Cubs signed OF Peter Bourjos to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Bourjos batted just .223/.272/.383 in 203 plate appearances last season with the Rays and his career slash line is fairly similar. His range in the outfield and speed on the basepaths have both dropped off since his days with the Angels. The 30-year-old is doubtful to make a significant impact with the Cubs.

Braves general manager Alex Anthopoulos said Monday that the club has interest in retaining impending free agents Nick Markakis and Kurt Suzuki.

Anthopoulos didn't say whether any negotiations have taken place, but it's safe to assume they'll be in touch soon if they haven't already. While Markakis dropped off during the second half, he still had his best season in several years with a .297/.366/.440 batting line to go along with 14 homers and 93 RBI. He'll turn 35 in November. Suzuki worked as part of a tandem with Tyler Flowers once again while batting .271/.332/.444 with 12 homers and 50 RBI over 105 games. He turned 35 earlier this month.

Braves signed manager Brian Snitker to a two-year extension.

The deal includes an option for a third year in 2021. It's well-deserved, as Snitker led the Braves to a surprising 90 wins and an NL East title. The Braves lost to the Dodgers in the NLDS, but the future looks bright.

Nathan Eovaldi will start Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday.

Rick Porcello was previously lined up to start Game 3, but he was needed out of the bullpen in Sunday's Game 2 victory. Eovaldi is coming off seven innings of one-run ball with five strikeouts and no walks in his Game 3 start against the Yankees during the ALDS.

Jackie Bradley delivered a go-ahead three-run double off of Gerrit Cole in the third inning on Sunday, propelling the Red Sox to a 7-5 victory over the Astros in Game 2 of the ALCS.

The Red Sox entered the frame trailing 4-2, but things got interesting when Xander Bogaerts lined a one-out single into center and Steve Pearce followed with a double. Rafael Devers then drew a walk to load the bases. After Ian Kinsler struck out for the second out of the inning, Bradley sliced a double into the left field corner to clear the bases and put the Red Sox ahead to stay. They'll now head to Houston with the series knotted up at a game each.

Chris Sale was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital on Saturday due to a stomach illness.

While the issue is not believed to be severe, Sale will be held overnight for observation. It's unclear if the illness played any role in his performance on Saturday or his uncharacteristically poor command. Look for the Red Sox to provide an update on his status on Monday.

Rafael Devers is starting at third base and batting sixth for the Red Sox in Sunday's ALCS Game 2 against the Astros.

It's only Devers' second start of the postseason, as the Red Sox have mostly gone with Eduardo Nunez at third base. However, Nunez is just 2-for-14 so far at the plate in the playoff and was unable to make a key play in the field in Game 1. The Red Sox' full lineup looks like this: Mookie Betts RF, Andrew Benintendi LF, J.D. Martinez DH, Xander Bogaerts SS, Steve Pearce 1B, Devers 3B, Ian Kinsler 2B, Jackie Bradley Jr. CF, Christian Vázquez C.

George Springer extended his postseason hitting streak to 10 games in Saturday's victory over the Red Sox, matching Lance Berkman's club record.

Springer opened the scoring in the ballgame with a two-run single that squeaked just under the glove of third baseman Eduardo Nunez in the second inning. He also drew a pair of walks in the game, finishing the night 1-for-3. He's having another outstanding postseason, slashing an unbelievable .412/.474/.941 with three homers and five RBI in his first four games.

Justin Verlander earned his 13th career postseason victory on Saturday, limiting the Red Sox to two runs on two hits and four walks over his six innings of work.

Verlander punched out six on the night. All of the trouble against him came during the fifth inning, where he inexplicably lost command of the strike zone. There, he allowed a leadoff single to Steve Pearce, then issued one-out walks to Eduardo Nunez and Jackie Bradley Jr. to load the bases. A third consecutive walk, this one to Mitch Moreland, forced in a run, then a second run dashed home on a wild pitch. Verlander is expected to get the ball again in Game 5 of the series, provided the Astros don't wind up sweeping the Red Sox.

Justin Turner smashed a go-ahead two-run homer off of Jeremy Jeffress in the eighth inning on Saturday, propelling the Dodgers to a 4-3 victory over the Brewers in Game 2 of the NLCS.

The Dodgers looked destined to head back to Los Angeles facing an 0-2 deficit in the series, until they rallied late. After pushing a pair of runs across in the seventh inning to trim the deficit to one run, Chris Taylor led off the eighth with an infield single. Turner then turned on a 2-0 offering and pulverized it into the seats in left field, stunning the home faithful at Miller Park. Turner finished the day 2-for-4 and is now slashing .304/.407/.478 with one homer and three RBI in the postseason.
Oct 13 - 7:46 PM

Orlando Arcia broke a scoreless tie with a solo homer in the fifth inning on Saturday, but the Brewers couldn't hold off a late charge from the Dodgers as they dropped Game 2 of the NLCS.

It snapped a string of 12 consecutive victories for the Brewers dating back to September 23. Arcia's dramatic go-ahead shot off of Hyun-Jin Ryu in the fifth inning was his lone hit in four at-bats on the contest. He's hitting .250/.250/.625 with a pair of solo home runs during the postseason.

Lorenzo Cain went 3-for-5 with a double and a run scored as the Brewers held on to beat the Dodgers 6-5 in Game 1 of the NLCS on Friday evening in Milwaukee.

Cain singled and came around to score the go-ahead run in the third inning on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Hernan Perez in the third inning. He nearly had himself a four-hit night, though his last one was taken off the board in the ninth inning and ruled an error on third baseman Justin Turner. Cain had been just 1-for-12 (.083) for the postseason prior to Friday's game.
