Date Player
10/23/2017 Tyler Flowers, Atl, C
The Braves have exercised their 2018 option on Flowers.

Analysis: Flowers, 31, will return for his third season with Atlanta after hitting a career-best .281 with 12 homers and 49 RBIs. He had arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist Oct. 9 and is expected to be ready for spring training.
10/23/2017 R.A. Dickey, Atl, P
The Braves have declined their $8 million option on Dickey for 2018.

Analysis: Dickey was the Braves' most consistent starter this season, going 10-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 31 starts. He said at the end of the season he would meet with his family before deciding if he would pitch in 2018.
10/22/2017 Adam Warren, NYY, P
Adam Warren did not allow a hit or walk in 1.1 scoreless innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Houston Astros 4-0 on Saturday. Warren did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.30 WHIP on the season.
10/22/2017 CC Sabathia, NYY, P
CC Sabathia fell to 1-1, allowing one run on five hits and three walks in 3.1 innings, as the New York Yankees lost to the Houston Astros 4-0 on Saturday. Sabathia did not strike out a batter, ending the game with a 0.96 ERA and 1.61 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Sabathia had a solid postseason overall but never looked sharp in this one. But there's hope for him to be an effective pitcher again in 2018 after an impressive 2017.
10/22/2017 Lance McCullers Jr., Hou, P
Lance McCullers Jr. recorded his first save, allowing no runs on one hit in 4.0 innings, as the Houston Astros defeated the New York Yankees 4-0 on Saturday. McCullers Jr. struck out six, ending the game with a 0.90 ERA and 0.60 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: McCullers' first career save was a dominant performance. He'll probably be in line to start Game 3 of the World Series.
10/22/2017 Tommy Kahnle, NYY, P
Tommy Kahnle allowed three runs on four hits in 1.1 innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Houston Astros 4-0 on Saturday. Kahnle struck out one, ending the game with a 4.26 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season.
10/22/2017 David Robertson, NYY, P
David Robertson allowed one hit without giving up a run in 2.0 innings as the New York Yankees lost to the Houston Astros 4-0 on Saturday. Robertson struck out three, ending the game with a 9.00 ERA and 1.60 WHIP on the season.
10/22/2017 Charlie Morton, Hou, P
Charlie Morton improved to 1-1, allowing two hits and one walk over 5.0 scoreless innings, as the Houston Astros defeated the New York Yankees 4-0 on Saturday. Morton struck out five, ending the game with a 7.27 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: The big inning tends to plague Morton, but it never happened in this one. His sinker was sharp and he showed A.J. Hinch that he can hopefully pitch effectively in the World Series.
10/22/2017 José Altuve, Hou, 2B
Jose Altuve went 1 for 3 with a home run and an RBI Saturday as the Houston Astros topped the New York Yankees 4-0. The homer was his second of the season. He ended the game with a .320 batting average.

Analysis: The smallest player on the field is often the best, and the Astros will need a big series out of Altuve if they're going to beat the Dodgers.
