Eric Hosmer    1B   Kansas City Royals
Hosmer went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Giants in Game 3 of the World Series.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Hosmer's sixth-inning RBI put the Royals up 3-0 at the time and after giving up two runs in the bottom of the inning, they held the Giants scoreless from there on out to take a 2-1 series lead. While the hit Thursday was a big one, Hosmer is just 1-for-10 in the series.
Miguel Cabrera    3B   Detroit Tigers
Cabrera (ankle) may not be ready for Opening Day, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports. "[Cabrera] is as tough as you can possibly be," GM Dave Dombrowski said Friday. "It's worse than what we ever would have anticipated."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The 31-year-old didn't miss a start and hit .379/.409/.709 with eight homers and 18 RBI in September, which is hard to fathom in light of these new details. Two screws were inserted into Cabrera's right ankle Wednesday to help stabilize a stress fracture in the navicular bone, a far more serious procedure than a simple scope to remove bone spurs, which is all Cabrera was believed to be dealing with. While the situation is slightly troubling, it will be three months before the Tigers evaluate Cabrera, and his progress in the interim will ultimately determine his availability for spring training and the start of the regular season.
Madison Bumgarner    P   San Francisco Giants
Bumgarner will start Game 5 of the World Series against the Royals on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports.

Tim Lincecum    P   San Francisco Giants
Lincecum (back) will be available for Game 3 of the World Series, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Lincecum exited Wednesday's Game 2 with a lower-back injury, but after undergoing an MRI and playing catch, he'll be ready if needed. There still could be some hesitancy to call upon him though, but he's an option nonetheless.
Adam Wainwright    P   St. Louis Cardinals
Wainwright will undergo elbow surgery, Will Carroll of Turner Sports reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Wainwright was dealing with some elbow issues during the playoffs, but it didn't force him to miss any action and he was cleared to have a normal offseason. The surgery will deal with a bone spur situation, normally a minor procedure, so he should be good to go before spring training.
Jarrod Dyson    OF   Kansas City Royals
Dyson is in the lineup for Game 3 of the World Series on Friday.

Miguel Cabrera    3B   Detroit Tigers
Cabrera underwent right ankle surgery Wednesday afternoon to remove bone spurs and to repair a stress fracture in the navicular bone in the top of his foot. He will be evaluated again in three months.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The bone spurs were a known issue that seemed to hamper Cabrera throughout the second half of the season, but the issue with the navicular bone adds a degree of complexity to the procedure that Cabrera underwent this week. That he'll be evaluated in late January prior to the start of spring training suggests that there's a possibility he won't be 100 percent when the Tigers report to Florida in February, as he may be very limited in his workouts in the coming months. Nevertheless, the procedure should offer some much needed relief with the ankle, following a season in which Cabrera hit .313/.371/.524 with 25 homers, 109 RBI and 101 runs scored.
Tim Lincecum    P   San Francisco Giants
Lincecum was spotted playing catch with the Giants' strength coach Thursday, Alex Pavlovic of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Grady Sizemore    OF   Philadelphia Phillies
Sizemore signed a one-year, $2 million deal with the Phillies on Thursday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Sizemore began the 2014 season with the Red Sox before being released outright in June. He signed on with Philadelphia shortly after and went on to appear in 60 major league games, hitting .253/.313/.389 with three home runs and 12 RBI in 162 at-bats. His numbers tailed off considerably toward the end of the season -- Sizemore went 4-for-41 at the dish in September -- but he apparently played well enough in the Phillies' eyes to earn another deal, which includes performance bonuses likely based upon plate appearances. It's a bit of a puzzling move for the Phillies, as the 32-year-old Sizemore hasn't hit over .260 since 2008, when he was an All-Star with the Indians.
John Hester    C   Philadelphia Phillies
The Phillies have signed Hester to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training, Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports.
