Athletics | Tyler Clippard traded away

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:26:02 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard was traded to the New York Mets Monday, July 27, in exchange for P Casey Meisner.

Fantasy Tip: With Clippard out of the picture in Oakland, Edward Mujica is the speculative favorite to pitch the ninth inning, but Drew Pomeranz could also be in the mix if he's moved back to a relief role. Fernando Rodriguez probably has the best skill set to pitch the ninth, but it's unclear if he'll be in the mix. Mujica has the experience over the others, but the A's could also use a committee approach from here on out. Target Mujica first if you're looking for saves, but expect this situation to be quite messy for fantasy owners.

Mets | Tyler Clippard acquired by Mets

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:22:53 -0700

Oakland Athletics RP Tyler Clippard was acquired by the New York Mets Monday, July 27, in exchange for P Casey Meisner.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how the bullpen roles will be affected by the acquisition of Clippard, who was closing for the A's. Jeurys Familia was lights out in the first half of the season but has blown both of his save chances since the All-Star break, leaving this situation a bit unsettled. Clippard is likely to serve in some sort of setup role, but he could also see save chances, especially if Familia continues his slump. Hold onto Clippard for now in all leagues. If anything, this hurts the chances of Bobby Parnell and Jenrry Mejia securing more prominent roles at the back end.
