Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Ware said he is healthy despite being on pace to finish without double-digit sacks this season. Ware had a meaningless garbage-time sack in the team's Week 14 game Monday, Dec. 9, after a two-game sackless streak. He has dealt with a stinger and a thigh injury this season. "I've been effective, but I have to go back to the fundamentals of practice and honing in on things, keying on things and making myself a better player," he said.

The Colorado Rockies acquired SP Brett Anderson and cash considerations from the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, Dec. 10, in exchange for Ps Drew Pomeranz and Chris Jensen.
FANTASY TIP: Anderson's value has tanked the last few years because he hasn't been able to stay healthy. With that still clouding his future, the move to Coors Field should turn what little hope any of us had left for him down the drain. Pomeranz must show better control to become relevant in the majority of fantasy leagues, but the move to Oakland may put him on many a sleeper list for 2014.

Free-agent RP Jose Veras (Tigers) is interested in returning to the Houston Astros this winter. Veras saved 19 games for Houston last year before being traded to the Detroit Tigers. "It feels like family there," Veras said. "It's a young team and they're hungry to win. I feel part of the team. It doesn't matter to me if we won or lose. When you play as a team and everybody cares, that's the best part for me. I do my job to make the team excited we won the game." The Astros are also talking to free-agent RPs Jesse Crain (Rays) and Chad Gaudin (Giants).
