The Cleveland Indians have expressed interest in trading for Milwaukee Brewers RP Will Smith.
Fantasy Tip: Cleveland has been searching for left-handed bullpen help for a while and Smith would likely be used in a setup role if he lands there. He is 1-3 with a 3.72 ERA in 24 appearances this season, with eight walks and 18 strikeouts over 19 1/3 innings.

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jeremy Jeffress and RP Will Smith have been scouted by the San Francisco Giants.
Fantasy Tip: The Giants have been wavering on Santiago Casilla as their closer as he has blown five saves in 26 chances. Jeffress could come over and have a chance to slot in the ninth. However, odds are that he'll set up if he's dealt. Smith would only gain value if Jeffress is dealt and Smith is not. Both are worth owning universally.

The New York Mets have expressed interest in Milwaukee Brewers RPs Jeremy Jeffress and Will Smith, according to an industry source.
Fantasy Tip: Jeffress is 2-2 with a 2.35 ERA and 23 saves in 40 appearances this season, with nine walks and 28 strikeouts, while Smith is 1-2 with a 2.12 ERA in 19 games, with five walks and 15 strikeouts in 17 innings. A potential trade to New York would be more damaging to Jeffress' fantasy value, since he would no longer be closing games due to the presence of Jeurys Familia. Both relievers would be ticketed for setup roles if the Mets acquire them.
