Short porch could fuel a rise for Stephen Drew
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:23 am ET) The Red Sox waited two months and paid a pretty hefty sum to get 131 at-bats and a .583 OPS out of Stephen Drew this season. They were able to get out from under his deal by shipping him off to the Yankees just before the deadline, and now Drew will try to re-establish himself as a contributor as the Yankees everyday second baseman.

Drew has been a major disappointment this season, though there are reasons to believe he might be able to turn things around following this trade. First and foremost, when looking at Drew, we have to acknowledge that he has been the victim of some absolutely rotten luck, overall. He is hitting just .176 overall, though that comes paired with an abysmal .216 BABIP; that number was .320 a year ago, and .304 for his career.

Even with that bad luck on his side, Drew has been much better recently, hitting .215 but with four home runs and 11 walks over his last 19 starts, a span of 28 games. And he has been doing that in a park that is less forgiving for left-handed batters than his new home stadium.

Drew is never going to provide much in the batting average category, but he is certainly better than the sub-Mendoza level he has managed so far. A change of scenery could be just what Drew needs to spark his bat, and he might be worth a look in deeper Fantasy leagues if you need middle-infield help.


Jose Bautista upset at team's inactivity at trade deadline
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista expressed disappointment Thursday at his team's perceived inability to add talent at the trade deadline.

"Of course it's a little disappointing that we somehow weren't able to get anything done, but everybody around us that's in contenteion ... somehow figured it out," he told the Toronto Star.

The Jays had been rumored to be interested in several players, but teams such as Detroit and Oakland landed the biggest fish in the trade market.


Martin Prado unlikely to find any Yankee Magic
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11:22 am ET) The Yankees acquired super-utility man Martin Prado just before the trade deadline from the Diamondabcks, and will likely begin plugging him in around the diamond. However, he might find playing time a bit harder to come by in New York than Arizona, where he was seeing the majority of his playing time at third base.

The Yankees have no obvious hole which needs filling by Prado at this point, especially since their biggest need is at right field, a position Prado has logged just two innings at in his career. Prado should still play somewhat regularly, but is unlikely to have an everyday spot in the Yankees lineup locked down.

Prado is useful for Fantasy for many of the same reasons that he is in real life, since you can slot him anywhere a need arises and count on decent production. Unfortunately, he isn't a productive enough hitter to be worth counting on as a regular starter each week if he is only starting 3-4 times a week. Consider him droppable in many mixed leagues at this point.


Report: Henry Owens on the way to Pawtucket
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11:02 am ET) The Red Sox have promoted premier pitching prospect Henry Owens to Triple-A Pawtucket, sources have told WEEI.com.

The 22-year-old southpaw earned the promotion by compiling a 12-4 record and 2.60 ERA. He has yielded just 89 hits in 121 innings with 126 strikeouts. Given the trades of Jon Lester and John Lackey on Thursday, Owens could be on the fast-track to Boston.


Report: Tyler Skaggs likely heading to DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:56 am ET) Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs expressed confidence that the forearm strain that knocked him out of the game Thursday against Baltimore is not serious. But it will likely land him on the disabled list, according to the Los Angeles Times.

That would mark his second trip to the DL this season.

Skaggs, who is scheduled for an MRI on Friday, is 5-5 with a 4.30 ERA in 2014.


Trade deadline not likely to save Emilio Bonifacio's value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:50 am ET) After a hot start to the season that saw  him jump to Fantasy relevance, Emilio Bonifacio has been in a long decline that saw him benched by the Cubs over the last two months and relegated to part-time duty.

Despite this, Bonifacio is still owned in 48 percent of CBSSports.com leagues, even though he has just four stolen bases to his name since May 1. The deadline-day move to send him from Chicago to Atlanta is unlikely to open up too much more playing time for the super-utility man, so Fantasy owners still clinging to whatever semblance of hope is left would be wise to cut ties with Bonifacio now. 


Jose Abreu remains on fire with three-hit game in Motor City
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10:48 am ET) The only unusual aspect of another big game for White Sox slugger Jose Abreu on Thursday was that he neither scored nor drove in a run. Other than that - typical Abreu.

The breakout star doubled twice, singled and walked twice in helping his team defeat Detroit. Abreu extended his hitting streak to 20 and has hit safely in 38 of his last 39 games. He leads the majors in home runs with 31 and RBI with 83.

(10:42 am ET) The comeback story of Phillies left fielder Grady Sizemore continued to move toward a happy ending with another productive game Thursday in Washington.

Sizemore slammed three more hits, including a two-run double in the fourth that launched the rout and an RBI single in the ninth that capped it. He has been lights-out since signing with Philadelphia. Sizemore has nine hits, five runs and five RBI in his last five starts.

(10:38 am ET) Phillies center fielder and leadoff hitter Ben Revere went from hot to hotter Thursday in Washington.

Move to Miami unlikely to give Jarred Cosart a big boost
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10:37 am ET) The Marlins have slotted Jarred Cosart into Jacob Turner's slot in the rotation, meaning we will get out first view of how the team's newest pitcher adjusts to life at Marlins Park.

Cosart never really set the world on fire with the Astros, though he was better for most of the season than his 4.41 overall ERA might indicate. He entered the month of July riding a five-game quality start streak and sporting a 3.60 ERA though 16 starts, but was tagged for an 8.02 ERA in four July outings, while never finishing the sixth in any start.

The move to Miami could be a boon to Cosart's Fantasy value, as his extreme groundball tendencies should play even better in Miami. He allowed just 0.54 home runs per nine innings with the Astros as is, but is not moving from a park that ranks as one of the majors friendliest to power hitters to one that dampens power to an almost absurd degree.

Cosart should be helped by the move to Miami, but Fantasy owners probably shouldn't have too much interest until the hard-throwing righty can turn some of that velocity into strikeouts. Cosart moves into consideration for NL-only leagues with this move, but is probably not worth an addition in mixed leagues at this point.
