The Toronto Blue Jays have acquired 1B Brett Wallace from the Baltimore Orioles for an undisclosed amount of cash.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace has teased fantasy owners in the past with his potential. Through 90 games at Triple-A Norfolk, he has 10 home runs, 35 RBIs, and a .265 batting average. He is worth a speculative add in AL-only formats, given the Blue Jays could find him semi-regular at-bats with Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind on the disabled list.

Updating a previous report, Baltimore Orioles 1B Chris Davis (oblique) left the game early Friday, April 25, because of a left oblique strain.
Fantasy Tip: There is a chance that Davis will have to go on the disabled list because of the injury. Steve Clevenger, Ryan Flaherty or Steve Lombardozzi could handle first base if the team uses someone off their current roster. They could also consider recalling Steve Pearce or Brett Wallace from Triple-A to fill the role. If Davis goes on the DL, none of his replacements likely would be more than AL-only options.

The Houston Astros released 1B Brett Wallace.
Fantasy Tip: The former first-round pick just hasn't hit enough at the big-league level yet. He's still only 27 and could latch on to a team where a platoon role may allow his left-handed stick to be useful this season. Keep an eye on where he lands and his progress as the season goes on.

The Houston Astros recalled 1B Brett Wallace from the minors Tuesday, June 25.
Fantasy Tip: Wallace turned things around at Triple-A Oklahoma City, hitting .326 with 16 doubles, 11 home runs and 37 RBIs in 59 games after struggling earlier this year in seven games with Houston (.042/.115/.042). Wallace can also play third base and could platoon with slumping Matt Dominguez at the hot corner. Consider Wallace in AL-only leagues.
