Blue Jays | TOR scouting wide variety of pitchers

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:43:44 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking at several pitchers in their quest to land a starter, according to baseball sources. Pitchers mentioned include Chicago White Sox SP Jeff Samardzija, Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco, Milwaukee Brewers SP Mike Fiers, San Diego Padres SP's Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue Jays are trying long and hard to improve their starting pitching, and other pitchers like Mat Latos and Dan Haren are also on this list. The odds of the Blue Jays landing one of these starters might be quite nice, thanks to how wide the net is.

Tigers | Detroit interested in Mike Leake?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:56:19 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake could draw interest from the Detroit Tigers if they determine this week that they have a realistic shot at the American League Wild Card race.

Fantasy Tip: A trade of Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) to the American League Central is unlikely to change his fantasy value all that much. If you're in an AL-only league and in need of upgrades, you should definitely be looking to save your FAAB money for players that cross over in trades later this week.

Dodgers | LA interested in Yovani Gallardo, Mike Leake?

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:16:46 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo or Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake could be fallback options for the Los Angeles Dodgers if they lose out on Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels or Detroit Tigers SP David Price.

Fantasy Tip: There's no question that both Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) would benefit greatly from a move away from extreme hitter's parks to the pitching-friendly environment of Chavez Ravine in Los Angeles.

Giants | SF interested in Mike Leake

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:45:52 -0700

The San Francisco Giants have expressed interest in Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Even though San Francisco appears to have a surplus of starters, they are considering acquiring Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) because several of their pitchers have age or injury concerns. Leake is 8-5 with a 3.78 ERA through 20 starts this season.

Cubs | CHI has some interest in Mike Leake

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:57:21 -0700

The Chicago Cubs have some interest in Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake but would prefer not to make a deal for a rental player.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is 8-5 with a 3.78 ERA in 20 starts this year and will become a free agent at the end of the season. He is scheduled to make his next start against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 28.

Reds | Mike Leake starting Game 1 Wednesday

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:39:54 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake will start the first game of the doubleheader against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has a 1.80 ERA with 16 strikeouts through 20 innings over his last three starts. The Cubs have the potential to make it a long day for Leake, though. He is worth considering as a No. 2 starting pitcher at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Blue Jays | TOR interested in Mike Leake

Sat, 18 Jul 2015 10:27:13 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays have expressed interest in trading for Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) is 7-5 with a 3.95 ERA but has struggled against American League clubs, going 1-1 with an 8.36 ERA in three starts versus the junior circuit this season. On the other hand, he is 4-2 with a 2.57 ERA in nine outings this year away from the hitter-friendly Great American Ball Park. As long as he's pitching on the road, he makes a good midrange value in FantasyScore.

Reds | Mike Leake does it all

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 21:16:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake allowed one run on four hits over six innings and drove in three runs in a win over the Cleveland Indians Friday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) followed up a great start before the All-Star break with another soldi outing, and although he can be prone to an occasional dud, he can make a useful value play at FantasyScore when he draws a friendly matchup.

Astros | Houston interested in Mike Leake?

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 09:25:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake is believed to be coveted by the Houston Astros as the trade deadline approaches. The Astros have an excess of outfielders and seem to be willing to deal from a position of strength, including OFs Domingo Santana and Preston Tucker.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) would be a backup plan for the Astros if they can't land Johnny Cueto or Cole Hamels. Houston isn't exactly an upgrade over hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark, but Leake's fantasy value should be helped by a trade out of Cincy, as he's sporting a 5.92 ERA at home this year.

Reds | Mike Leake expected to be dealt

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 09:24:24 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake has been told the team intends to trade him before the July 31 trade deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Leake ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) could definitely benefit from an exit from Great American Ball Park. He has a 5.92 ERA at home while possessing a 2.57 ERA on the road.
