Updating a previous report, the Texas Rangers acquired OF James Jones, RP Tom Wilhelmsen and a player to be named later from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for OF Leonys Martin and RP Anthony Bass Monday, Nov. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Jones is the only notable addition to the trade, and he is a low-end fantasy option in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, at best. Through 359 career plate appearances, Jones owns a .238/.268/.296 slash line. You should aim higher in the majority of seasonal leagues.

The Houston Astros placed RP Anthony Bass (intercostal) on the 15-day disabled list with a right intercostal strain Wednesday, May 14, and recalled RP Josh Fields from Triple-A Oklahoma in a corresponding move. Bass' DL stint is backdated to May 11.
Fantasy Tip: Fields was in consideration for the closer role during the committee approach last month, but since then, Chad Qualls has taken over with a nice little run lately. Qualls should be owned in all leagues now that he has the job to himself for the time being.
