Top Pitching Prospect Brent Honeywell Suffers Torn UCL

The ever-trading Rays got some unwelcome news, as one of the game's top pitching prospects, Brent Honeywell, was diagnosed with torn UCL, which will force him to miss all of the 2018 season. He'll likely need Tommy John surgery, but no news on the timing of the surgery exists just yet. While the Rays' starting rotation was the team's strong point, it loses some much-needed depth.

Rays Continue to Revamp, Trade Corey Dickerson to Pirates

The Rays have traded Corey Dickerson to the Pirates for Daniel Hudson and Tristan Gray. The move comes after Dickerson was designated for assignment last weekend. The Pirates fill Andrew McCutchen’s outfield spot, while the Rays continue to add depth. The Pirates really improved their outfield by adding Dickerson, who hit .282 with 27 home runs in 150 games last season. He’s projected to put up similar numbers in 2018, with a possible hit to his batting average. The Rays' outfield has been in flux for a couple of weeks…

Yankees, Rays, and Diamondbacks Complete Three-Way Trade

The Yankees, Rays, and Diamondbacks have completed a three-way trade that helps each team. For the Diamondbacks, they acquire some more outfield depth in Steven Souza. The Yankees add some infield depth as they transition two rookies to the majors. The Rays shed some salary, clear up an outfield logjam, and get a couple of prospects headlined by Anthony Banda. With so many moving pieces, here is how the trade affects each team. Diamondbacks The Diamondbacks receive the most fantasy relevant player in the trade, with…

Giants Add Evan Longoria, Rays Create a Mess

Tampa Bay traded Evan Longoria to the Giants on Wednesday for Christian Arroyo, Denard Span, Matt Krook and Stephen Woods. The move upgrades the Giants' third base position while muddling up the Rays' infield depth chart. For Longoria, his fantasy value barely moves. He goes from one pitcher-friendly park to another. Both Tropicana Field and AT&T Park suppress right-handed power, but AT&T does so to an even larger degree. The offenses on both teams are subpar. He’ll bat near the top of each lineup. Not a major…

Potential Closers Traded: Boxberger and Johnson

Two trades happened mid-day Thursday, with the Angels and Diamondbacks picking up potential closers. First, Tampa Bay traded reliever Brad Boxberger to Arizona for pitching prospect Curtis Taylor. Taylor looks to have a decent chance of succeeding but is still in Low-A ball. He’s fantasy irrelevant for this season. Boxberger (463 ADP) looks like he’ll move immediately into Arizona’s closer mix, competing with Archie Bradley. Boxberger held down Tampa’s closer role in 2015, collecting 41 saves. After dealing with…
