First Baseman

1B | Allen Craig | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said 1B Allen Craig (foot) could play this postseason, but it's not probable that he does.

While Matt Adams has been great filling in, Craig is one of the most clutch hitters in baseball and is an RBI machine. This definitely will hurt their chances at title No. 12 in 2013.

1B | Jonathan Singleton | Houston Astros | Transaction, Fantasy
The Houston Astros added 1B Jonathan Singleton to the 40-man roster Wednesday, Oct. 2.


Second Baseman

2B | Dan Uggla | Atlanta Braves | Fantasy,
Atlanta Braves 2B Dan Uggla is not on the team's 25-man roster for the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The roster includes slumping OF B.J. Upton and SP Freddy Garcia. SP Paul Maholm also did not make the roster after going 10-11 with a 4.41 ERA on the season. Uggla hit only .122 in 49 at-bats in the season's final month. 2B Elliot Johnson is expected to start at second base in the series.


Third Baseman

3B | Brandon Laird | Houston Astros | Transaction
The Houston Astros released P Philip Humber, C Cody Clark, INF Brandon Laird and C Matt Pagnozzi from the 40-man roster Wednesday, Oct. 2, sending them outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

3B | Miguel Cabrera | Detroit Tigers | Injury, Fantasy
Detroit Tigers 3B Miguel Cabrera (groin, abdomen) continues to play in pain as the team enters the playoffs, according to manager Jim Leyland. "He's not 100 percent," Leyland said. "He's been playing in a lot of pain. He's a real tough guy. I think if anybody knew the pain he's playing in, they probably wouldn't believe it." His groin and abdominal issues have been the most apparent when he's running the bases.


Outfielder

OF | Andre Ethier | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Fantasy
Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (ankle) was placed on the NLDS roster.

It's still unclear whether he's healthy enough to play center field, but his presence helps against right-handed pitchers.

A decision must be made on surgery by Nov. 1 to leave him time to get ready for spring training.
