Arizona Diamondbacks SP Allen Webster was optioned to Class AAA Reno Tuesday, June 30, and RP Matt Stites was recalled from Reno in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Webster ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) had an unsightly 7.11 ERA in four starts for the Snakes this year. You can now drop him in all formats. It's unclear who will enter the rotation in his place, but Patrick Corbin (elbow) is expected to return from the DL next week to start against the Texas Rangers. Corbin is worth adding in all formats if he's available.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have reached an agreement to trade SP Ian Kennedy to the San Diego Padres for RP Joe Thatcher, P Matt Stites and a compensatory B draft pick.
Fantasy Tip: This may reignite Kennedy's mixed-league value, assuming the deal goes through. Stites is a power arm who, according to Brock in another tweet, just had an appendectomy and will be fine. The diminutive righty has put up excellent numbers in the minors thus far and may be under the radar.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Ian Kennedy is close to being traded to the San Diego Padres. Arizona would reportedly receive RP Joe Thatcher, P Matt Stites and a third player in the deal.
Fantasy Tip: Sounds like a deal involving Kennedy is imminent. A change of scenery would be good for the right-hander, given his struggles this year, and a move to Petco Park can't hurt. He may regain some mixed-league value.
