First Baseman

1B | Allen Craig | St. Louis Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
St. Louis Cardinals 1B Allen Craig (foot) is unlikely to be able to play in the National League Championship Series.


Shortstop

SS | Hanley Ramirez | Los Angeles Dodgers | Injury, Fantasy
Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (back, hamstring, shoulder) played the National League Division Series in a good amount of pain after dealing with a nerve problem in his back. His left hamstring and left shoulder also require constant care. Ramirez has been showing up to the stadium five or six hours before the game to be worked on by the trainers. "After I got here, the medical staff, man, they've been unbelievable," Ramirez said. "I think they're part of my success. I think I wouldn't be where I am now without them."


Third Baseman

3B | Jeff Baker | Texas Rangers | Transaction
The Texas Rangers designated 2B Jeff Baker for assignment Wednesday, Oct. 9.


Catcher

C | J.C. Boscan | Chicago Cubs | Transaction,
Chicago Cubs OF Thomas Neal, OF Darnell McDonald, RP Rafael Dolis, C J.C. Boscan and RP Zach Putnam cleared waivers Wednesday, Oct. 9, and were outrighted to the minors.


Outfielder

OF | Carlos Gonzalez | Colorado Rockies | Fantasy
Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort said the organization has no plans to trade OF Carlos Gonzalez or SS Troy Tulowitzki this winter. "The plan is to keep them. Next year, yes. And my plan is to always keep them," Monfort said. "Is that the smartest thing in the world to do? I don't know. But for our fans I think it's the best thing to do."


Starting Pitcher

SP | David Price | Tampa Bay Rays | Fantasy,
Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price thinks he will be traded this offseason. "It's not disappointing or anything like that," Price said. "This is a place I love to be. My teammates and everyone in the organization knows that. It's part of baseball and it's something I've seen go on, it's kind of something I somewhat prepared myself for." Price will be eligible for arbitration in the offseason, and his salary could move from $10 million to $13 million.

SP | Zack Greinke | Los Angeles Dodgers | Fantasy,
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has been announced as the starter for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, Oct. 11. SP Clayton Kershaw will go in Game 2 on regular rest.
