Kevin Kiermaier (wrist) said Monday that he's "good to go." Kiermaier didn't start Games 4-6 of the ALCS after being hit on the left wrist by a pitch in Game 3, but he was back in the lineup for Game 7 and claims he'll be fine for the World Series. We wouldn't necessarily expect him to say anything else given what's on the line.

Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the World Series for the Dodgers against the Rays on Tuesday. It was the expected decision after Kershaw didn't pitch in Game 7 of the NLCS on Sunday, but now it's official. The veteran southpaw allowed four runs over five-plus innings in his most recent start in Game 4 of the NLCS against the Braves last Thursday. Much like the Dodgers, Kershaw is trying to finally win the big one. He'll try to outduel Tyler Glasnow to begin the series.
