Marlins | Miami adds prospects in blockbuster

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:32:28 -0700

The Miami Marlins acquired SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo as part of the a three-way trade with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, July 30. The Dodgers acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo, and the Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: This was strictly a salary dump for the Marlins. With Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) gone, Justin Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to receive the majority of at-bats at first base. It is unknown who will join the starting rotation, and it is unlikely the Marlins are finished their roster makeover. Stay tuned for updates.

Braves | Atlanta adds Hector Olivera

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:17:03 -0700

The Atlanta Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice as part of the a three-way trade with the Miami Marlins and Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, July 30. The Dodgers acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo, and the Marlins added SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo.

Fantasy Tip: Olivera is a high-end talent who was close to joining the Dodgers at various points this season but hamstring and elbow injuries have limited his progress. He is a 30-year-old Cuban who posted a .348/.392/.493 slash line over three stops in the minor leagues this season. There is a legitimate chance he plays with the Braves this season, and he is worth a flier addition in the majority of deep formats. With Wood ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) and Johnson gone, there is an opening in the starting rotation and closing duties are up for grabs. Look for Mike Foltynewicz ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) to stick in the rotation, but the closer role is a true guessing game. A speculative stab for David Carpenter, Cody Martin or David Aardsma could reward, but don't drop anyone of significance until the water is less murky.

Dodgers | Alex Wood, Mat Latos acquired by LAD

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:01:02 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo as part of the a three-way trade with the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 30. The Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice, and the Marlins added SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) and Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) receive a huge boost starting for a strong team, which boasts an excellent offense and bullpen. They can both be started with confidence in the majority of matchups. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has struggled significantly this season, and he will have a tough time receiving enough at-bats to tip the fantasy scales. Johnson goes from closing duties in Atlanta to being a set-up arm for the Dodgers, and he is nothing more than a desperation saves stash, as he is unlikely even the next man up.

Dodgers | Jose Peraza in proposed deal

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:45:57 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jose Peraza is included in the proposed deal with SP Alex Wood, RP Jim Johnson and RP Luis Avilan headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Miami Marlins would send SP Mat Latos and 1B Michael Morse to the Dodgers as well. The Marlins would receive P Jeff Brigham, P Victor Araujo and P Kevin Guzman. The Braves would receive RP Paco Rodriguez and 2B Hector Olivera.

Fantasy Tip: The deal is still pending because of physicals. Peraza probably doesn't have a role with the Dodgers this season, but he's a dynasty league commodity. Jim Johnson would lose much of his fantasy value as a setup man in LA. Arodys Vizcaino is expected to be the front runner to close in Atlanta if the deal goes through.

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 16:04:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, the trade between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Miami Marlins involving Marlins SP Mat Latos and 1B Michael Morse is on hold because of medicals.

Fantasy Tip: This serves as a reminder to always stray from making hasty fantasy decisions until trades are officially confirmed. Stay tuned for an official announcement, and it might only be a minor hiccup before the deal is finalized. Starting for the Dodgers would be a huge fantasy boost for Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap).

Dodgers | Mat Latos, Mike Morse headed to Dodgers

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 09:11:29 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse and compensation pick No. 34 overall were acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers for three minor leaguers. The Dodgers will assume the remainder of Latos' $9.4 million salary and the remainder of Morse's $7 million this season and $8 million next season.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has been on fire lately, and his value remains high with this move. His price on FantasyScore is a bargain right now. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) will be a matchup play.

Blue Jays | TOR looking at Mat Latos

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 12:49:14 -0700

The Toronto Blue Jays are interested in Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos, according to a baseball source.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has had 19 strikeouts in his past 20 innings and he appears to be coming around after a rough first-half start. He should make a fine addition to any team.

Marlins | Mat Latos' market becoming clear

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 10:25:11 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos' trade market is "coming into focus," according to a source, and the Marlins are more confident that they'll be able to move him.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) has quietly rebounded in his last three starts, allowing four earned runs with 19 strikeouts in 20 innings. He can still be useful to fantasy teams down the stretch, and a trade to a contender could even boost his value significantly.

Yankees | Mat Latos drawing Yankees' interest

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 11:15:30 -0700

Miami Marlins SP Mat Latos has drawn trade interest from the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Latos ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has been excellent his last few starts and is a nice bargain on FantasyScore right now. A move to the American League could hurt him, though.
