The Dodgers traded for seven players in one three-way trade, including Mat Latos and Alex Wood. Hector Olivera, among others, heads the other way.

What You Need to Know: July 30, 2015

Steven Jacobson

Tulowitzki's debut, a Kiermaier Kalamity, and more highlight yesterday's action.

The Wednesday Takeaway
This was Francisco Liriano's third time facing the team with which he made his major-league debut. The results were mixed. One, in 2012, was the best game he pitched in his brief stint for the White Sox, as he went seven innings while giving up one hit and two runs and striking out nine. The other, in May of this season, was his worst start of 2015: two innings, seven runs.

Liriano, who possesses a 2.76 DRA this season, survived past the second inning with only one run allowed but would not live up to that September 2012 game as he allowed two more to score on singles by Aaron Hicks and Miguel Sano to give the Twins a 3-1 lead.

The blood has dried along with the account - will there be an infusion?

I finally ran out of alligator blood. After more than a month spent playing on the fumes of my initial $500 investment, occasionally peaking over the $100 threshold, my bankroll on DraftKings went to zero on Tuesday. The slow death was reminiscent of my poker playing days, in which I gained a reputation for hanging around with a short stack as I refused to go quietly into the night. The strategy would occasionally result in a reversal of fortune and yet I would often sink slowly into the abyss of the inevitable, but I realized that I enjoyed the challenges presented by that scenario and had somewhat accidentally tailored my game towards a conservative style of play that encouraged such an outcome. Needless to say, an eventual demise wasn't a surprise, and that lesson is especially pertinent in light of my empty account on DraftKings.

Some Projection Left: Scouting at the Deadline

0

Christopher Crawford

What exactly are scouts looking for when they watch a player right before the trade deadline?

We hear it every year. Whether you’re on Twitter, Facebook, Gryzzlbox or reading one of those things that has the coupons and comics in it, you will see some variation of the following sentence:

“Team X was in town to scout Player Y’s last start.”

The Quinton: Fantasy Trade Deadline Guide

0

Jeff Quinton

Strategy, process, and decision-making help for your deadline dealing.

The real baseball trade deadline approaches. The trade deadline in many fantasy baseball leagues also approaches. It is a wonderful time of the year. To celebrate, we will take a look at some of the strategic and behavioral decision-making factors that we should be considering this time of year. Some of these factors will be old friends, while others will be new acquaintances. We will be going more for breadth than depth here.

League Norms and the Default Effect

We are looking at the intersection of two behaviors here, so buckle up. A norm in many a league is for teams to wait to trade until the trade deadline. A less extreme norm is for teams in the middle of the pack to wait until the traded deadline to decide whether to be buyers or sellers. This is often a powerful norm because it provides owners with (i) an easy route for risk aversion and (ii) a nice default option. These decisions are hard, and the default effect tells us that when we are faced with complex or weighty decisions, we rely more on defaults. In this case, many teams will avoid making moves until the trade deadline.

The Stash List: 15th Edition, 2015

J.J. Jansons

This week's top stash could be Atlanta-bound soon if trade rumors from Wednesday come to fruition.

The non-waiver trade deadline is rapidly approaching and many of the players featured on The Stash List could have their values quickly change should they be on the move before Friday at 4 p.m. ET, as #HugWatch2015 sweeps the nation…


The Graduates: (3) Rusney Castillo, (11) Michael Conforto, (17) Zach Lee

Minor League Update: Games of Wednesday, July 29th

Jeff Moore

Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Royals third baseman Hunter Dozier and Yankees righty Luis Severino.

Hitter of the Day: Hunter Dozier, 3B, Royals (NW Arkansas, AA): 4-5, 3 R, 2 2B, HR.
Dozier has really struggled this season, his second time stumbling in Double-A after having issues there last year following a mid-season promotion. He impressed last season in A-ball, flashing a number of plus tools including power, but while getting out of Wilmington has helped that power some, his free-swinging approach at the plate has limited it greatly.
