Milwaukee Brewers SP Josh Hader has been promoted from Class AA Biloxi to Class AAA Colorado Springs.
Fantasy Tip: Hader went 2-1 with a dazzling 0.95 ERA in 11 starts with Biloxi this year, with 19 walks and 73 strikeouts over 57 innings. The 22-year-old lefty should be on the radar of fantasy owners in NL-only and dynasty formats.

The Milwaukee Brewers dealt OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers to the Houston Astros Thursday, July 30, and received prospects OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser.
Fantasy Tip: Khris Davis ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should start every day in the outfield, and he'll be worth grabbing in deeper mixed leagues, and he can be used against right-handed pitching on FantasyScore. Wily Peralta ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) will move into Fiers' rotation spot, he allowed just two earned runs over six innings in his return from the disabled list, and he can be used depending on his matchup.

The Houston Astros acquired OF Carlos Gomez and SP Mike Fiers from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, July 30. OF Brett Phillips, P Josh Hader, OF Domingo Santana and P Adrian Houser go to Milwaukee.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) fantasy value will take a slight hit, as he goes from the park with the second highest runs per game to the park with the 19th highest average, but he does join a more potent offense. OFs Jake Marisnick ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Preston Tucker ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will lose playing time and fantasy value. Fiers ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) will receive a slight boost, as he moves to a more pitcher-friendly ballpark. Lance McCullers ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) may be bumped from the starting rotation.

The Houston Astros acquired OF L.J. Hoes and P Josh Hader from the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, July 31, in exchange for SP Bud Norris. Houston also received a competitive lottery draft pick, roughly 35th overall.
Fantasy Tip: Hoes, a left-handed pure swinger, is developing some moderate power. He hit .304 with three home runs and 40 RBIs in 365 at-bats with Triple-A Norfolk. He should have a chance to see significant playing time in Houston after they traded Justin Maxwell away. Consider adding him in deep AL-only leagues. Hoes is starting for the 'Stros Wednesday.
