Good morning baseball fans!
Atlanta’s third base coach is a candidate to become Colorado’s next manager:
Perez had an 11-year major league career and since retiring has served as the Braves’ bullpen coach and first base coach. He also has experience managing in the Venezuelan Winter League, which could prove to be valuable should he be selected.
Cleveland will exercise Carlos Santana’s club option for next season.
Colorado’s coaching staff is gone:

Oakland made a notable move Saturday:
Sogard, the A's longtime infielder, has elected free agency after being outrighted to Nashville.— Susan Slusser (@susanslusser) October 8, 2016
The Cubs will be down a catcher this off-season:
Ross reiterated what he told me last Sunday: He's 99.9 percent sure he's retiring.Last week he said it would take offer he could not refuse— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) October 8, 2016
Padres starter Jarred Cosart is set to undergo elbow surgery, the club announced.
It’s seems unlikely that the Pirates extend Gerrit Cole, according to Rob Biertempfel of The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
The struggles Cole went through this season could impact — and perhaps hasten — his departure from Pittsburgh.
Arbitration-eligible for the first time this offseason, Cole is under team control through the 2019 season. After that, he can bolt via free agency.
The deeper we get into the postseason, the more managers will lose their jobs. Keep up with that game of chess in one place . Send us a thank you card later.
