Athletics | Jon Lester acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:00:10 -0700

The Oakland Athletics acquired SP Jon Lester and OF Jonny Gomes from the Boston Red Sox for OF Yoenis Cespedes and a competitive balance pick, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Lester's value increases slightly with the move to a more spacious park in Oakland in an arguably weaker-hitting division. Gomes should receive platoon playing time and is an AL-only option. For more, Click on our Trade Deadline Tracker!

Orioles | Won't trade Kevin Gausman, Dylan Bundy

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 14:11:51 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SPs Kevin Gausman and Dylan Bundy are considered untouchable in trade talks at the deadline, according to multiple sources. It's likely the reason the team hasn't been able to work out a trade for Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester.

Fantasy Tip: We don't blame the O's for not wanting to budge on Gausman or Bundy. If the two can stay healthy, they could form a very formidable top of the rotation for years to come, something that Baltimore hasn't had in quite some time.
