Yankees | Yanks land two big prospects

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:36:52 -0700

The New York Yankees traded RP Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs Monday, July 25, in exchange for SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney and SP Adam Warren. Torres was the centerpiece of the deal and was hitting .275 with nine home runs in 94 games with Class A Myrtle Beach.

Fantasy Tip: Torres, although young at 19, was the Cubs' top prospect not in the majors. He could hit somewhere between 15 to 20 homers at the major league level and also has great speed. He also has impressive hands on defense and could easily be a future All-Star. McKinney has good offensive potential, as well, but was hitting just .252 with a homer and 31 RBI at Class AA Tennessee. He makes consistent contact and has a good understanding of the zone, giving him the ability to hit for a high average. Warren had been a swing man for Chicago and could find his way into New York's rotation if an injury occurs or they trade a starter.

Cubs | Aroldis Chapman deal official

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 09:34:46 -0700

The Chicago Cubs acquired RP Aroldis Chapman from the New York Yankees Monday, July 25, according to sources. The Cubs sent SS Gleyber Torres, OF Billy McKinney, RP Adam Warren and possibly another player. Torres is the centerpiece of the deal and was hitting .275 with nine home runs in 94 games for Class A Myrtle Beach.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman is an elite closer that just got even more attractive, as he'll now be closing games for one of the best clubs in all of baseball. Hector Rondon's value takes a big hit, as he's likely the setup man now to Chapman. In New York, Andrew Miller would see a sizeable boost if he's not traded, as he would likely take over closing duties for Chapman. If Miller also leaves town before the deadline, Dellin Betances figures to be next in line. Both relievers are already must-owns in all leagues for their stellar relief ratios.

Yankees | Four players in proposed Chapman deal

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 07:41:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Cubs SS Gleyber Torres, RP Adam Warren and two others are in the proposed deal for New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman. OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are not among them.

Fantasy Tip: If Chapman lands with the Cubs, it's hard to see him setting up for Hector Rondon, who would lose a lot of fantasy luster. Chapman's numbers are stellar as usual, and he's an elite RP in fantasy regardless. The Yankees are expected to wait four or five days to decide whether to move RP Andrew Miller. If Miller stays, he could be in line to return to the closer role. If he is also dealt, Dellin Betances isn't a bad fallback option. Both remain must-owns in any scenario, but Miller could be in line for a big fantasy uptick if he isn't dealt.

Cubs | Aroldis Chapman to Cubs talks heat up

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 23:37:06 -0700

New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman is part of a proposed deal with the Chicago Cubs for SS Gleyber Torres, among others, according to sources. Torres was scratched from his game in the minors Sunday, July 24, and a deal is possible Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: Chapman's K-rate is down a bit, but it's still great at 12.64 per nine innings. On the plus side, his control has been better with only eight walks in 31 1/3 innings, which has led to a miniscule 0.89 WHIP. A return to the National League would only benefit him more. It's hard to see him serving in a setup role, and Hector Rondon would lose a lot of fantasy luster. As for the Yankees, Dellin Betances has a leg up on Andrew Miller because Betances is right-handed. Both relievers remain attractive in all formats, but Betances could see a big boost.
