UPDATE: OK, maybe the Marlins aren’t going to trade for John Lackey.

If the Sox are truly dealing Lackey, everyone should be talking to them given how little he’ll make in 2015. But right now it’s the Marlins:

Lackey had a couple of bumpy years in Boston, but he has posted a 3.55 ERA over 50 starts since the beginning of last season for the Sox, turning into one of the more reliable mid-rotation starters in all of baseball.

UPDATE: The latest from our field reporter, Buzz Killington:

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.
