Washington Nationals SP Lucas Giolito, who was making his third career start, gave up four runs and four hits in 3 1/3 innings Sunday, July 24, in a 10-6 loss to the San Diego Padres. Giolito was optioned to the minors after the game.
Fantasy Tip: You may want to hold off on Giolito until he shows more signs of stability. It's clear the team is taking advantage of his options status to shuttle him back and forth, and he hasn't impressed in any appearances.

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is believed to be the Washington Nationals' primary target prior to the non-waiver trade deadline Aug. 1. However, the club does not appear willing to part with INF Trea Turner or SPs Lucas Giolito or Reynaldo Lopez in a potential deal, according to a baseball source. The Yankees are reportedly looking for players that can contribute immediately at the MLB level, although they have had scouts attending games for affiliates ranging from Class A Hagerstown to Class AAA Syracuse. OF Michael Taylor is believed to be available, according to the source, but the Yankees' level of interest in him is unknown.
Fantasy Tip: The 28-year-old Chapman is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA and 19 saves in 29 appearances this season, with eight walks and 40 strikeouts in 28 1/3 innings and should be viewed as a high-end reliever regardless of the team he is playing for. However, his fantasy value should receive a slight boost if he is moved to a contender.

Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross (shoulder) will make a minor league rehab start Sunday, July 24. That means SP Lucas Giolito could return and start against the San Diego Padres Sunday. He's coming off 6 2/3 shutout innings for Class AAA Syracuse July 19.
Fantasy Tip: Ross has held his own in a rotation spot this year with a 3.49 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 7.5 K/9, so he should be stashed in all formats. There's a good chance he returns after just one or two rehab starts. Giolito has much more upside, though, as a frontline starting pitcher and is certainly attractive in all leagues if he faces the Padres Sunday.
