Rockies | Troy Tulowitzki doesn't have no-trade clause

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 11:03:34 -0700

Colorado Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki does not have a no-trade clause in his contract, at least not at the moment. If traded, he would be awarded a $2 million bonus from the club that acquires him. Any hypothetical new club would trigger a no-trade clause for him, along with the remaining five years and $104 million left on his deal. The chances of Tulowitzki being swapped before the July 31 trade deadline remain remote, though, in big part because of his current hip flexor strain.

FANTASY TIP: It's doubtful Colorado would seriously entertain a waiver trade situation as well, but you never know. For now, fantasy owners' priority should be hoping for him to heal in a reasonable amount of time, probably over the next few weeks.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:56:34 -0700

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:54:59 -0700

Cubs | Justin Ruggiano still hobbled

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:53:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Justin Ruggiano (groin) isn't ready to play the field because of a groin injury but is available for pinch-hitting duties.

FANTASY TIP: Ruggiano's hot hitting of late has been halted by this health issue. Deep-league owners will bide time until he comes back with another rental outfielder.

Seahawks | Malcolm Smith not practicing

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:49:17 -0700

Seattle Seahawks LB Malcolm Smith (ankle) is not participating in practice Friday, July 25.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:48:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson (hand) does not have lingering issues after hand cramps forced him to leave his start Thursday, July 24.

FANTASY TIP: Jackson remains a mere NL-only asset.

MLB | Rusney Castillo could arrive in 2014

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:41:28 -0700

Cuban free-agent OF Rusney Castillo could be in the big leages in 2014, even if he starts the season in the minor leagues after signing with a club. He's expected to join an organization soon after his showcase on Saturday, July 26, where he'll work out as an outfielder and a shortstop. Some comps MLB observers have established for the 5-foot-9, 185-pounder include New York Yankees OFs Brett Gardner and Jacoby Ellsbury, and former major leaguer Kenny Lofton. Scouts say the right-handed bat has some power and plus-plus speed.

FANTASY TIP: He's someone to take a stab on in single-universe games depending on where he signs. He probably won't be another Billy Hamilton, but his fleet feet should intrigue 2015 drafters.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:35:10 -0700

Philadelphia Phillies RP Jeff Manship cleared waivers and accepted an assignment to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:32:06 -0700
