Free agent Jed Lowrie signs a two-year deal with the New York Mets worth $20 million. And in doing so, has muddied the waters for the fantasy impact of their infield. Firstly, for the Mets it’s a fine move as Lowrie has versatility and is coming off his best season
Free agent Michael Brantley signed a two-year deal with the Houston Astros worth $32 million. Most people expected the Astros to focus their attention on pitching this winter with the departure of Charlie Morton and Dallas Keuchel to free agency and losing Lance McCullers for the 2019 season after he
Free agent Daniel Murphy signs a two-year deal with the Colorado Rockies worth $24 million. The Rockies lost DJ LeMahieu to free agency this off season, so it makes sense they’d go out and get Murphy. However, it’s not likely to be a straight replacement. The belief is Murphy will

Two deals went down early in the afternoon on Monday. There will still be a bevy of action between now and the Tuesday deadline (as of this writing) but both of these trades could have long-term fantasy effects and they definitely will affect real baseball. One of the deals was
Another day goes by and another couple of deals go down. In the past, we have covered each deal individually and when a deal is significant enough we might do that. Friday afternoon saw a couple of middle infielders move to contenders when the Twins dealt Eduardo Escobar to the
Usually, we see the kind of activity we saw on July 26th on deadline day. In total, five trades were consummated. Our job here is to pinpoint which ones actually impact you. With all defefence to Martin Maldonado, I don’t think that move really moves the needle much. Joakim Soria
