So far how trades effect Fantasy Baseball
Cantu to the Rangers- This could actually be huge for Cantu, just like it has been for Vlad, Josh Hamilton, and even Andruw Jones last year . The ball travels well there and he is hitting .350 at Rangers Ballpark. He joins one of the weaker divisions in baseball and should be valued slightly higher then he was before the trade.
Oswalt- The guy is having a good season regardless of his W-L. Some claim he is pitching at a level similiar to his prime. Oswalt will move to a tough division, but a renewed sense of hunger should help him. The Phillies will start to hit and Oswalt has a high ceiling at this point.
Tejada to Padres- This does help the Padres to bring a veteran to the club. But, he does not really have that much pop anymore and now his stadium just got even bigger.
Capps- This is huge for Capps owners but in a bad way. He has had a great year but now has no value unless Raunch somehow falls apart. Storen needs to be picked up in all leagues.
Guzman to Rangers- The Rangers are going very hard this trade dealine. Guzman for the short-term will be valuable to owners. When Kinsler comes back however, he may be a platoon player. Ian Desmond will now be the full time SS for Washington and we will have an eye on how he reacts to it.
Edwin Jackson- Not sure if this is where he will stay. Some say he will now be used as trade bait to bring in someone like Berkman or Dunn. Stay tuned
Will update as more trades occur
