Seattle Mariners OFs Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia are both making their starting debuts with the team Friday, Aug. 1. Jackson is leading off and playing center field and Denorfia is hitting sixth and starting in right field.
Fantasy Tip: Jackson's value won't change much at all. However, with the M's sending both James Jones and Stefen Romero to the minors, Denorfia could see enough at-bats in his new home to be considered in deep mixed leagues now.

Seattle Mariners OFs James Jones and Stefen Romero were optioned to Triple-A Tacoma Friday, August 1, to clear roster spots for OFs Austin Jackson and Chris Denorfia.
Fantasy Tip: Jones and Romero can be dropped in the majority of formats. Finding a stolen-base replacement for Jones should be a priority for his owners.

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 a single-universe commodity.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is receiving increasing trade interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Chris Denorfia is likely to be dealt before the MLB non-waiver trade deadline Thursday, July 31.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit going to the Dodgers or New York Yankees, among other teams rumored, likely would result in him working a setup role and losing save chances. Denorfia could land in a part-time role that warrants some deep-mixed value.

San Diego Padres OF Chris Denorfia is the subject of trade talks with the Seattle Mariners and Atlanta Braves, who are interested in adding him to their bench.

San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy is looking less likely to be traded, but OF Chris Denorfia probably will be dealt.
Fantasy Tip: Kennedy staying put would be good news for his fantasy value and NL-only owners. His current oblique injury may scare teams off. Denorfia leaving would be a positive fantasy development; joining any other offense and entering any other home park would be an upgrade that could extract more deep-mixed utility.

The San Diego Padres have placed OF Carlos Quentin (knee) on the 15-day disabled list because of left knee soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Jeff Francoeur could get most of the playing time in the outfield while Quentin is out of the lineup. He should be an option in NL-only leagues but probably does not have much value in deep mixed leagues. Chris Denorfia could also receive more playing time but there have been rumors that he likely will be traded.

The Kansas City Royals are zeroing in on right field help at the trade deadline, with possible targets including Marlon Byrd (Phillies), Alex Rios (Rangers), Chris Denorfia (Padres) and Dayan Viciedo (White Sox).

San Diego Padres OF Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games by MLB because of amphetamine use.
Fantasy Tip: Will Venable, Jeff Francoeur and Chris Denorfia could receive more playing time with Maybin suspended, but there have been reports that Denorfia could be moved by the trade deadline. Owners in deep leagues could consider adding Venable to their team, while Francoeur and Denforia should only be considered in NL-only leagues for now.
