Rangers | Lucas Harrell will start for Texas

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:30:44 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Lucas Harrell will be in the team's starting rotation, according to general manager Jon Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: One of the year's brightest surprise stories after not starting a major league game since the beginning of the 2014 season, Harrell will provide the Texas pitching staff with some much-needed depth. With Colby Lewis and Derek Holland still out for the foreseeable future, Harrell will get the chance to stick on a top contender, though owners shouldn't expect him to sustain his 3.38 ERA that he held over five starts with the Braves.

Braves | Atlanta adds prospect Travis Demeritte

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:44:18 -0700

The Atlanta Braves acquired 2B Travis Demeritte from the Texas Rangers in exchange for SP Lucas Harrell and RP Dario Alvarez Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Demeritte, 21, has 25 home runs with a .272/.352/.583 slash line with Class A High Desert this season, but he's clearly a long way from the majors. He's nothing more than a player to deep keeper/dynasty formats for the near future.

Rangers | Lucas Harrell dealt to Rangers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:37:23 -0700

The Texas Rangers acquired SP Lucas Harrell and RP Dario Alvarez from the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, July 27. The players traded to Atlanta have yet to be announced.

Fantasy Tip: Harrell should be owned in all cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's pitched well for five starts this season during an otherwise underwhelming career. Over 67 career starts, he owns a 4.69 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP, after all. Keep your expectations in check. Alvarez is a left-handed reliever with no fantasy value at this point.

Braves | Lucas Harrell works six scoreless

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:48:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Lucas Harrell allowed no runs on four hits in six innings against the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday, July 26. Harrell issued three free passes and struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: In five starts this month, Harrell is 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA, a 1.26 WHIP and 21 K's in 29 1/3 innings. He's NL-only fodder while he's languishing on the Braves, but if they move him before the deadline he could become an intriguing roll of the dice in deeper mixed leagues.

Braves | Lucas Harrell drawing trade interest

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 11:03:06 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Lucas Harrell has drawn interest from "at least three teams," according to general manager John Coppolella.

Fantasy Tip: It's amazing how quickly things can change, as Harrell was struggling in Korea as recent as last year. Now, after a decent showing in four starts with the Braves -- his first starts in the big leagues since the beginning of 2014, remember -- he could wind up on a contender. The former Houston Astro will really only hold any value if he remains in the National League.

Braves | Lucas Harrell beaten by Reds

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:34:07 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Lucas Harrell was pretty good in his start Wednesday, July 20, but it wasn't enough as he fell to the Cincinnati Reds. Harrell went six innings, allowing four runs on seven hits, including a home run. He also struck out three and issued three walks.

Fantasy Tip: Harrell was probably a bit better than his final statline, as he did carry a shutout into the sixth before things came apart for the 31-year-old journeyman. The former Houston Astro has now gone at least six innings in three of his four starts, while flirting with usefulness in NL-only leagues. He still has to show some more consistency to prove he can be trusted in his newfound situation with the Braves.

Braves | Lucas Harrell shelled in loss

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:26:29 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Lucas Harrell allowed seven runs, five earned, on seven hits while walking three and striking out four over 3 2/3 innings in a loss to the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 15.

Fantasy Tip: After impressive outings in his first two starts, Harrell looked a lot more like the pitcher with a 4.72 career ERA. At best, he is a roll-of-the-dice option in DFS formats.

Braves | Atlanta sets post-break rotation

Wed, 13 Jul 2016 12:27:56 -0700

Atlanta Braves SPs Lucas Harrell, Mike Foltynewicz and Julio Teheran will face the Colorado Rockies Friday, July 15, Saturday, July 16, and Sunday, July 17, accordingly.

Fantasy Tip: Luckily, the series is at Turner Field and not Coors Field, so Teheran is a viable option in all fantasy formats after a strong fist half (2.98 ERA and 8.1 K/9). Harrell has allowed just two runs through 13 2/3 innings over his two starts and could be a streaming option in deep leagues and a low-priced flier in daily contests. Similarly, Foltynewicz owns a 3.67 ERA over his nine starts and is a potential own in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Braves | Lucas Harrell to start Saturday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 21:17:40 -0700

The Atlanta Braves will use SP Lucas Harrell for the start Saturday, July 2, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: Harrell has starting experience in the majors, but he is only worth using in the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues if you're desperate for starting pitching.

Tigers | Tigers sign Lucas Harrell

Mon, 07 Mar 2016 16:05:12 -0800

Free-agent SP Lucas Harrell (Korea Baseball Organization) has signed a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers. He will report to minor league camp.

Fantasy Tip: While it's unlikely he cracks the Opening Day roster, there might be some potential here, as Harrell has experienced notable success before. In fact, on a 107-loss Houston Astros team in 2012, the 30-year-old was 11-11 with a modest 3.76 ERA. It could be a long way before Harrell is relevant in the majors again but the possibility looms.
