Detroit at Oakland, 8:05 PM (FOX/FX)
ALCS, Game 2 (DET 1-0)

Starting Pitchers:

The Mets-Cardinals game has been postponed.

In other news, Jason Dubois has passed through waivers; the Indians have outrighted him off the 40-man roster. Dubois is the third Indian to be outrighted since the season concluded, the others being Jason Stanford and Jake Dittler.

Dubois had a decent season in Buffalo (.275/.342/.492), but not really good enough to crack the major-league team. He's going to have to hit his way back to the majors, given his defensive limitations, and the Indians have better options in house. I believe he's eligible for six-year (minor-league) free agency, so I would think he'd find a better fit elsewhere.
