Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith and Atlanta Braves RP Chris Withrow are among the bullpen options being monitored by the New York Mets ahead of the trade deadline. The club views adding another reliever as being "more easily attainable" as opposed to a starting pitcher.
Fantasy Tip: It would be a boost for each Withrow and Smith if one were to land on the Mets, at least in leagues that score holds, as both would get more opportunities at such compared to their current employers. Jeffress, however, would receive a huge downgrade, as he would no longer be closing like he does for Milwaukee, and effectively so in that role.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith will likely be dealt by the deadline.
Fantasy Tip: Several teams definitely have an eye on Smith as a closing candidate, so definitely stay tuned to see where he lands. He's had some closing experience while Huston Street has been injured on occasions, so Smith definitely knows the ins and outs.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim RP Joe Smith could be moved to another club before the trade deadline because he is in the final season of a three-year, $15.75 million contract.
Fantasy Tip: The 32-year-old right-hander is 1-3 with a 3.91 ERA and six saves in 25 appearances this season, with 17 strikeouts in 25 1/3 innings. Although he's likely to be used in low-leverage situations for the immediate future after being activated from the disabled list, he would likely return to a setup role if a contender acquires him. For now, he should be owned in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.
