The Rangers may not be done yet

Landing Prince Fielder is a pretty big move. But Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers may still sign a big free agent or trade one of their middle infielders:

 

It would be weird to move Profar given that they just freed up a space for him with the Kinsler deal. The notion of adding another bat, however — or trying to use the Cardinals’ need for a shortstop to pry away something from their rich farm system — is a good one.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

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.
