Diamondbacks | Kameron Loe breaks hand in fight

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:46:41 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks RP Kameron Loe (hand) broke his right hand in a fight while with Triple-A Reno.

Diamondbacks | Chris Owings hasn't taken BP

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:45:15 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings (shoulder) has not yet takenlive batting practice, according to manager Kirk Gibson.

FANTASY TIP: Owings probably won't be back for a few weeks, leaving Nick Ahmed and Didi Gregorius as mediocre, AB-fueled NL-only names.

49ers | Not close to deals with two upcoming FAs

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:20 -0700

The San Francisco 49ers will try to sign WR Michael Crabtree and OG Mike Iupati to contract extensions before they become unrestricted free agents next offseason, according to general manager Trent Baalke. The team is not believed to be close to a deal with either player at this point.

Phillies | Market quiet for big names

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:42:00 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SPs Cliff Lee and A.J. Burnett, RP Jonathan Papelbon, and 1B Ryan Howard haven't attracted much serious interest in trade talks. Howard and Lee have almost no market, and Burnett and Papelbon's allure has been limited. The latter two have unattractive player options that are limiting interest. All four may be candidates for an August trade after the non-waiver deadline passes.

FANTASY TIP: Philly's efforts to blow things up aren't going so well, and fantasy players may have to wait a few more weeks for significant changes to happen.

Lions | Kyle Van Noy injured

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:40:58 -0700

Detroit Lions LB Kyle Van Noy (thumb) left practice early Monday, July 28, because of a thumb injury. Head coach Jim Caldwell said Van Noy will be reevaluated Tuesday, July 29.

Patriots | Greg Orton goes to IR

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:40:45 -0700

New England Patriots WR Greg Orton (Achilles') cleared waivers and went on the team's Injured Reserve list Monday, July 28.

Patriots | Release Josh Hull

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:39:49 -0700

The New England Patriots released LB Josh Hull Monday, July 28.

Phillies | Cole Hamels' price: 'the world'

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:37:27 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is technically available on the trade market, but "they want the world" in exchange for him, according to a rival general manager. Hamels has a 20-team no-trade list but might be open to a trade because of Philadelphia's recent performance on the field.

FANTASY TIP: Hardly a surprise, considering he's a much better long-term ace than Cliff Lee, who has a better chance of being dealt, even after the non-waiver deadline. It'd take a ridiculous offer for Hamels to be moved.

Athletics | Kenny Wilson cut

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:36:20 -0700

Oakland Athletics OF Kenny Wilson was designated for assignment Monday, July 28.

Nationals | 2B will be matchup-based

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:34:02 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa and Zach Walters will keep splitting time based on matchups and hot-hand plays, according to manager Matt Williams.

FANTASY TIP: This adds shakiness to Espinosa's value, along with the possibility of the Nats adding a more stable 2B, like Aaron Hill.

Nationals | Danny Espinosa back in lineup

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:32:52 -0700

Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa is starting at second base Monday, July 28, because he looked calm at the plate Sunday, July 27.

FANTASY TIP: Espinosa could have plenty of PT with Ryan Zimmerman (hamstring) shelved, but the threat of Washington acquiring another keystoner keeps his long-term value in jeopardy. Stay tuned.

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:32:08 -0700

Rockies | Troy Tulowitzki unlikely to be dealt

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:22:03 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki is unlikely to be traded, despite several teams calling to express interest.

FANTASY TIP: The groin injury and massive contract aren't helping their cause, at least during the season. Expect more action this winter if he stays put.

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 14:19:47 -0700
