Corbin Burnes To Start Game 1 Against Diamondbacks
Milwaukee Brewers right-hander Corbin Burnes will take the ball for the Brew Crew in Game 1 of the wild-card series on Tuesday against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. He'll be opposed by rookie right-hander Brandon Pfaadt. With Brandon Woodruff (shoulder) now unavailable to pitch in this series due to injury, the Brewers will need Burnes and Freddy Peralta to step up. The 28-year-old Burnes has been solid all year for Milwaukee, going 10-8 with a 3.39 ERA (3.81 FIP), league-low 1.07 WHIP, 66 walks and 200 strikeouts in 193 2/3 innings over 32 starts. The three-time All-Star (each of the last three years) allowed seven earned runs on 11 hits (one homer) while walking just two and striking out 11 in 13 innings in his two starts against Arizona this year.

Jose Siri, Luke Raley Take Batting Practice Monday
Tampa Bay Rays outfielders Jose Siri (hand) and Luke Raley (neck) both took part in a live batting practice session during a workout on Monday. Siri has missed the last three weeks due to a hairline fracture in his right hand. The 28-year-old said he feels ready, but it remains to be seen if he'll be included on the team's roster for the wild-card series against the Texas Rangers, which begins on Tuesday. Raley, meanwhile, has been out of action for a few weeks due to a cervical strain. Both Siri and Raley were key contributors in Tampa's outfield for the majority of the 2023 season, so hopefully they'll have at least one of them available this week against Texas. Siri hit just .222 but broke out with a career-high 25 homers and 12 stolen bases in 101 games. Raley also had a breakout in his third MLB season, hitting .249 with 19 homers, 49 RBI and 14 steals in 118 games.

Byron Buxton Unlikely To Be On Roster For Wild-Card Series
Minnesota Twins outfielder/designated hitter Byron Buxton (knee) is less likely to be on the roster for the wild-card series against the Toronto Blue Jays, which begins on Tuesday. He's been out since Aug. 1 with a right-hamstring strain/sore knee. Buxton has gone 2-for-14 with six strikeouts over separate minor-league rehab assignments since then, but he just hasn't made enough consistent progress and he wasn't on the field for the team's workout on Monday. "He's been down for an extended period of time," president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said. "At this stage, that decision is gonna be made a little bit more broadly around kinda readiness, how it fits on a roster, what it looks like, ultimately for us."

Royce Lewis, Carlos Correa Expected To Be Ready For Wild-Card Series
Minnesota Twins infielder Royce Lewis (hamstring) and shortstop Carlos Correa (foot) are both expected to be on the team's 26-man roster for the wild-card series against the Toronto Blue Jays, which begins on Tuesday. Both players have been out of the lineup for the better part of two weeks, Lewis with a Grade 1 left-hamstring strain and Correa with plantar fasciitis. Team sources suggest that Lewis will likely be limited to designated hitter. Lewis is feeling good at the plate, but he still hasn't run at 100% and is clearly not at full strength. Correa last played a day before Lewis on Sept. 18 after feeling a pop in his left heel. He was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis back in May, but acknowledged the time off has been beneficial. Having both Lewis and Correa available will be a big boost, but it remains to be seen how productive they'll be while battling through their respective injuries.
