San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is receiving interest from the Los Angeles Dodgers, but the Friars prefer not to trade him within their division, if they move him at all.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit is a hot trade commodity as the deadline nears. If you're a saves chaser at this time, look to speculate on Dale Thayer, who is having a fine season and is next in line for ninth-inning duties if Benoit is traded.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is likely to be traded at some point in the near future, according to a major league source.

San Diego Padres RP Joaquin Benoit is drawing trade interest from the Cleveland Indians.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit has more fantasy value with San Diego because he'll likely be seen as a setup man or closer insurance with a contender. He should be heavily in the mix to close games for the Friars.

San Diego Padres CL Joaquin Benoit is drawing interest from the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
Fantasy Tip: Benoit would likely go back to being a setup man if traded to either team, which would make him expendable in standard mixed leagues. Meanwhile, Kevin Quackenbush would likely be the next in line to handle the ninth inning for the Padres.

Updating previous reports, the San Diego Padres acquired SS Jose Rondon, 2B Taylor Lindsey, RP R.J. Alvarez and a player to be named from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for CL Huston Street and P Trevor Gott.
Fantasy Tip: The Padres will likely go with Joaquin Benoit at closer, but the team is shopping him as well. Alex Torres could also figure into the mix. Grab Benoit in mixed leagues immediately and pick up Torres in NL-only leagues.

San Diego Padres RP Huston Street is getting close to being traded away by the team, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Street's value will fluctuate depending on whether he's traded and where he lands. As a setup man on a new team, he'll lose much of his value, but his peripherals will still be useful in deep leagues. If Street is dealt, Joaquin Benoit will need to be scooped up everywhere. If you have the room now, it's not a bad idea to get the jump on Benoit.
