Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:17:08 -0700

New York Giants CB Bennett Jackson (leg) suffered a left leg injury during practice Thursday, July 31.

Brewers | Logan Schafer optioned

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:16:40 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers have optioned OF Logan Schafer to Triple-A Nashville.

Pirates | Interested in David Price

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:16:12 -0700

The Pittsburgh Pirates are talking with the Tampa Bay Rays about the possibility of acquiring SP David Price, according to sources.

Mariners | Acquire Chris Denorfia

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:12:48 -0700

The Seattle Mariners acquired OF Chris Denorfia from the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 31. It's unknown what the Padres received in return.

FANTASY TIP: Denorfia joins a somewhat crowded outfield in Seattle. His playing time could be sporadic when Michael Saunders returns from the disabled list. Denorfia's value should increase a bit, but he's still probably nothing more than an single-universe commodity.

Dodgers | Not in on David Price

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:12:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price won't be going to the Los Angeles Dodgers, as they reiterated they are not planning to trade for him.

Diamondbacks | Gerardo Parra traded

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:06:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Arizona Diamondbacks have traded OF Gerardo Parra to the Milwaukee Brewers for OF Mitch Haniger and P Anthony Banda.

FANTASY TIP: With Parra moving on, David Peralta likely will receive more playing in the outfield. Owners in deeper leagues and NL-only leagues can consider adding him to their lineups.

Yankees | Esmil Rogers claimed

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:05:27 -0700

The New York Yankees claimed RP Esmil Rogers off waivers from the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 31.

Brewers | Gerardo Parra added

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 11:03:38 -0700

The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Arizona Diamondbacks for OF Mitch Haniger and P Anthony Banda.

FANTASY TIP: Parra probably will not have an everyday job with the Brewers, which will hurt his fantasy value. He could still be an option for owners in deeper mixed leagues and NL-only leagues.

Athletics | Jon Lester to start Saturday

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:58:59 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jon Lester is expected to make his first start with the team Saturday, Aug. 2.

Athletics | Billy Burns sent down, Jake Elmore cut

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:58:37 -0700

The Oakland Athletics optioned OF Billy Burns to Triple-A Sacramento Thursday, July 31, and designated INF Jake Elmore for assignment.

FANTASY TIP: That temporarily kills any AL-only interest in Burns for his stolen base prowess. Perhaps the condition of Coco Crisp (neck) has improved recently. Keep Burns on your radar in very deep leagues should he surface again in the majors.

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:52:20 -0700

Rays | David Price a goner?

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 10:44:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays SP David Price will definitely be traded, according to sources.

FANTASY TIP: Don't believe everything you see. Price has been speculated as the top trade target for months, but because of the Rays' recent push in the standings, talk has died down. A trade could happen right before the deadline, though, so stay tuned.
