Nationals | WAS making push for Craig Kimbrel?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:17:00 -0700

The Washington Nationals are the hottest team in pursuit of San Diego Padres RP Craig Kimbrel, according to sources. The Nationals are also linked to Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman.

Fantasy Tip: A move to the Nationals would be huge for both the team and fantasy owners, as Kimbrel is a lights-out closer who could rack up big-time save totals in the final two months for a contender.

Giants | SF interested in Aroldis Chapman

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:07:21 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has received an inquiry from the San Francisco Giants, but no offers from the two teams have been exchanged yet.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman would surely be closing on another club if he were to be traded, so his fantasy value is unlikely to change all that much as an elite closing option. Have J.J. Hoover close by this week if you're speculating on saves, as he'd likely be next in line to pitch the ninth inning if Chapman leaves town.

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 17:09:45 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman struck out five in two innings against the Cleveland Indians Sunday, July 19, setting a major league record for the fewest innings needed to reach 500 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman hasn't had a ton of save chances for a struggling Cincinnati team, but he remains an elite fantasy closer because of his incredible strikeout potential. He has 70 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings this season.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman on trade block?

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 09:06:33 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman is on the trading block this summer, and the Reds are entertaining offers for their All-Star closer as the trade deadline approaches. "It is something that is part of the game but out of my control," Chapman said, with trainer Tomas Vera translating. "I won't worry about it. It is up to the front office what happens." Chapman struck out all three hitters he faced in the All-Star Game Tuesday, July 14.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is almost certain to continue closing things out in the ninth inning if he is traded elsewhere at the deadline, so his fantasy value is unlikely to change drastically. If Chapman is dealt, J.J. Hoover is the most likely candidate to move into the closer's role in Cincy. Grab him now and stash him if you're hunting for saves moving into the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman missed a few days while on the paternity list, and J.J. Hoover recorded the save Wednesday night in his absence. Those in deeper mixed leagues that are desperate for saves may want to speculate on Hoover in case Chapman is traded this summer.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman on paternity leave

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 15:15:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has been placed on the paternity list Monday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman should only miss several days at the most, and the Reds are off Monday. J.J. Hoover is the likely candidate to receive a save chance with Chapman out of commission, but he's not worth adding in the short term.

Nationals | Nats discussing Aroldis Chapman

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 16:15:15 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman has been the subject of trade talks between the Reds and Washington Nationals, according to sources. However, no deal is imminent.

Fantasy Tip: This would be a very intriguing move for the Nats, since they are already set with closer Drew Storen. However, the Nationals covet a late-inning left-handed reliever, and one would have to believe that Chapman would become their closer, bumping Storen to more of a setup role. Stay tuned.

Reds | Aroldis Chapman bounces back

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 19:18:32 -0700

Cincinnati Reds RP Aroldis Chapman struck out the side to pick up his 10th save in 11 chances in a 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, June 4. His streak of 29 consecutive saves was snapped the previous night.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is in no danger of losing his job, and although the Reds aren't providing him with many opportunities to close games, he has 41 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings and remains an elite fantasy option at the position.
