From Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe comes word that reliever Ron Mahay has retired from baseball.
The left-hander signed a minor league contract with the Reds last winter but couldn’t make it past Triple-A Louisville. He last appeared in a major league game in 2010 as a member of the Twins’ bullpen.
Mahay, who turns 42 years old this June, is now hoping to get into managing or coaching. He registered a 3.83 career ERA and a 1.42 career WHIP over the course of 14 major league seasons.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
