  1. 2018 3rd round (17th pick) by the Dallas Cowboys
  2. Athletics acquired RHP Fernando Rodney from the Twins in exchange for RHP Dakota Chalmers. In Oakland, he'll work in a setup role ahead of closer Blake Treinen. With Rodney gone, the Twins will likely turn to Addison Reed in the ninth inning. Source: Oakland Athletics on Twitter Aug 9 - 10:16 PM
  3. Next three outings are ATL, @STL and MIA Problem I have about dropping him is that the Nats need to win and make up 6+ games and I would think he is going to be key to that - if they do make a run. If not and they fold then he may get put on Waivers and traded by the August 31 deadline.
  4. Posted August 4 - Dodgers placed LHP Alex Wood on the 10-day disabled list with left adductor tendinitis. Wood was said to have left Friday night's start against the Astros due to a tight left hamstring, but the Dodgers on Saturday termed it an adductor injury. Either way, he'll be out for at least the next 10 days, the first time he's been on the DL this year. The southpaw has a 3.58 ERA through 22 starts this year. Ross Stripling will take his spot in the starting rotation for at least the near term.
  5. On the DL since June 15 - the word was " It's sounding like he could miss at least 2-3 more starts, but that is purely speculative." With Mengden scratched on Saturday, does TC come back once his 10 Day DL stint is up.
  6. As a Harper owner, I cannot sell low, but for the first time I am contemplating not playing him. I haven't benched him yet for fear of him mashing three dingers in his return to the numbers that are on the back of his ball card. Which means, I will continue to get his O'fers and paltry .200 BA and ultimately lose H2H in my fake league every week since since early May when the plunge began.
  7. HR count (19 1st in NL) is great, OBP (.360 vs career of .380) is OK, its his avg (.228 vs .280 career) and struggling against righties at .238 that is making him seem like he is having a bad year. BTW his WAR this year is a .09 in 2015 MVP season he was 10.0 When he figures it out again, hold on tight.
  8. Robbie Ray (oblique) is on track to begin a rehab assignment with High-A Visalia on Thursday. Ray threw another bullpen session Monday and if he recovers from it with no issues he'll be cleared for rehab games. Considering the left-hander has missed the last six weeks of action, he will need multiple rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation. Source: Jack Magruder on Twitter Jun 11 - 6:59 PM
  9. Great opportunity for Dan to step on the accelerator and leave Texas in the rear view mirror. Beating an LAA team tonight at home should be his main objective.
  10. He is one of those players that you dreaded the day that you abolished him to the waiver wire. He is worth a stash on the DL. He should be back in mid-May rested and ready to pick up where he should have been at the end of April. Long season so I will take my lumps now and look for a decent return from him in May and June. If he struggles then I will send him to waiver fodder.
