MLB notebook: Red Sox starter Buchholz will pitch in World Series
Red Sox manager John Farrell said right-hander Clay Buchholz will pitch at some point in the World Series, which began Wednesday with Boston facing the Cardinals at Fenway Park.
According to media reports, the Red Sox considered shutting down the right-hander because of arm fatigue. But Farrell said Wednesday that Buchholz will start either Game 3 or Game 4 at Busch Stadium.
Craig returns to lineup
Allen Craig was back in the Cardinals' lineup in Game 1, batting cleanup and serving as the designated hitter. Craig had been out since Sept. 4 with a Lisfranc sprain in his left foot.
Agent: Mattingly will stay
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly will honor the last year of his contract, his agent, Ray Schulte, told ESPN.
Schulte said his client would be back next season for the final year of his four-year contract unless the Dodgers go in a different direction.
