Philadelphia Phillies SP Cole Hamels is willing to waive his no-trade clause in order to play for the New York Yankees. The Yankees appear to have Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto and Mike Leake near the top of their wish list this summer, too. "The opportunity to play for a team that could ultimately get to the World Series is what every guy hopes for and what every guy works for, starting with the offseason and spring training," Hamels said. Yankees OF Aaron Judge and SP Luis Severino intrigue the Phillies, although it looks like Severino won't be dealt.
Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($9,000, 18.0% of cap) remains an elite fantasy starting pitcher despite playing for the lowly Phillies. He'd certainly receive a boost to his value with a move out of Philly and to a contending team with a respectable offense to back him. Buying Hamels right now would be ideal if you can convince his current owner to part with him.

New York Yankees OF Aaron Judge was promoted to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Monday, June 22.
Fantasy Tip: Judge scored 36 runs, hit 12 home runs, drove in 44 and registered a .284/.350/.516 slash line over 63 games with Class AA Trenton. He is a late-blooming prospect who boasts an impressive 6-4, 270-pound frame. He could reach the majors and make an impact later in 2015, if he hits the ground running at Class AAA. In cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, Judge is worth monitoring.

The New York Yankees have been rumored to be interested in Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake, although they are unwilling to part with one of their top prospects, such as P Luis Severino or OF Aaron Judge.
Fantasy Tip: Leake ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be a free agent after the season, which explains why the Yankees are hesitant to part with a big-name prospect in exchange for him. Entering play Friday, June 19, he was 3-4 with a 4.35 ERA in 13 starts.
