San Diego Padres RPs Craig Kimbrel and Joaquin Benoit and Milwaukee Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez are of interest to the Houston Astros as they look to upgrade their bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Houston's interest in adding a bullpen arm is not what owners of Luke Gregerson want to hear, as he'd likely be removed from the closer role if they add one of those arms at the deadline. Other closing candidates would emerge in San Diego or Milwaukee, too, if a trade goes down. Stay tuned.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit (shoulder) is fully recovered from right shoulder inflammation that he had been dealing with, according to manager Bud Black. Benoit hasn't appeared in the last five games and seven of the team's last eight contests.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit lost pretty much all of his fantasy value right before the 2015 season started when the Friars traded for lights-out closer Craig Kimbrel. And with Benoit inconsistent in the early going, he's not making much of a case to be owned in deep NL-only leagues, either.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit will lose nearly all fantasy value with the addition of RP Craig Kimbrel Sunday, April 5.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit was set to open the season as the Padres closer but will now be relegated to a setup role. Unless you're in a league that counts holds, Benoit can be thrown to the waiver wire.
