The Royals have talked to free-agent SP Ervin Santana (Braves) and have looked at free-agent SP Brandon McCarthy (Yankees), Jason Hammel (Athletics) and others.

Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard hit a go-ahead grand slam in the eighth inning Thursday, Aug. 7.
Fantasy Tip: Howard now has two home runs and eight RBIs in his last three games, and while his average remains at a dreadful .220, he does have 18 home runs and 71 RBIs. If you are desperate for power numbers and don't mind the hit to your average, Howard could be worth scooping up, especially in NL-only formats.

Fantasy Tip: Howard is surprisingly hitting better against lefties this year (.229) than righties (.211), but he's still a very weak play in daily leagues tonight, even if Keuchel has cooled off since his nice first half.
