Padres | Four acquired

Sat, 19 Jul 2014 04:35:57 -0700

Updating previous reports, the San Diego Padres acquired SS Jose Rondon, 2B Taylor Lindsey, RP R.J. Alvarez and a player to be named from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for CL Huston Street and P Trevor Gott.

Fantasy Tip: The Padres will likely go with Joaquin Benoit at closer, but the team is shopping him as well. Alex Torres could also figure into the mix. Grab Benoit in mixed leagues immediately and pick up Torres in NL-only leagues.

Angels | Huston Street deal agreed upon

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 20:59:30 -0700

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and San Diego Padres have reportedly struck a deal Friday, July 18, for RP Huston Street in a 4-for-2 deal, according to a source. The Angels get Street and RP Trevor Gott, while the Padres get P R.J. Alvarez, SS Taylor Lindsey, SS Jose Rondon and another undisclosed minor-league player.

Fantasy Tip: Street is expected to take over closer duties in Anaheim, which will likely bump Joe Smith to a setup role. Street gets a bump in fantasy value pitching for a contender with more frequent save chances, while Smith loses a ton since he'll now likely be in an eighth-inning role picking up holds and not saves. Still, he is worth keeping in AL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. The prospects in this deal are still years away from having fantasy appeal.

Angels | R.J. Alvarez on DL in minors

Wed, 21 May 2014 20:28:23 -0700

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim P R.J. Alvarez (elbow) was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Double-A Arkansas due to "elbow tenderness," according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. He had an MRI in Anaheim this week, and the team does not have any reason to believe the prospect's injury is anything serious at this point.
