The Kansas City Royals acquired OF Norichika Aoki from the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for SP Will Smith.
Fantasy Tip: Aoki followed his good rookie season with a solid sophomore campaign in '13. He averaged nine homers, 43.5 RBIs, 80.5 runs and 25 steals in his first two seasons. He may lose some power in Kauffman Stadium, but his steals and run potential make him a solid outfielder to round out your fantasy lineup. Smith is a very good left-handed pitching prospect that could have a chance to crack the Brewers' rotation in 2014. The 23-year-old struck out 100 batters in 89 innings in a breakout season Triple-A last year. He's worth a look in NL-only leagues and could prove to be a solid addition with further development.

Fantasy Tip: Getz is expected to be in a platoon with veteran Jamey Carroll at second base moving forward. Both players should only be relied on in AL-only leagues.

The Kansas City Royals will recall SP Danny Duffy from Class AAA Omaha to start Wednesday, Aug. 7, against the Minnesota Twins. KC optioned RP Will Smith to clear a spot.
Fantasy Tip: Duffy should be owned in AL-only formats and could be a suitable streaming option in appropriate mixed leagues. His battles with control and recently completed recovery from Tommy John surgery say he'll probably struggle a bit. He's a decent low-end investment for 2014, though, so if you're looking ahead in full-retention games, check if you can scoop him up to stash.
