7/14:The Baltimore Orioles are reportedly narrowing their focus in Manny Machado trade talks. The Milwaukee Brewers and Philadelphia Phillies seem to be finalists among the at least seven teams currently interested. This could mean that the Orioles are only negotiating with Milwaukee and Philly or perhaps Baltimore is still considering other teams such as the Dodgers, but have put more focus into trade offers from the Brewers and Phillies. All-in-all it appears that a Machado trade is almost a certainty and this point with the only questions being when and who. Wherever Machado goes he will see a boost in fantasy value as he'll be joining a superior offensive team.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Buster Olney

7/14:Colorado Rockies outfielder David Dahl is being sent to Triple-A to continue physical rehab and is expected to start playing in rehab games by Friday. Dahl has been out since June 1 with a broken right foot. Prior to that Dahl was hitting .275 on the season with four home runs, 13 RBI and two stolen bases. There's no timetable for his return, however, the Rockies outfielder is inching closer to returning to the lineup. Dahl has always showed potential, but has suffered numerous injuries throughout his career. For now he should remain on the waiver wire, however, if he receives regular playing time he could become a must-have in most fantasy leagues.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Thomas Harding

7/14:St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Tyler O'Neill has been sent to Triple-A Memphis to begin his rehab assignment. O'Neill has been out since July 5 with a hamstring injury. O'Neill is hitting just .227 with three home runs and seven RBI in 2018. He has a ton of potential, but it's currently unclear if the Cardinals plan on recalling him when his rehab assignment is up. With so much uncertainty around him, O'Neill is a drop candidate in all but deep leagues.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Jenifer Langosch
7/14:New York Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez is slated to begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Sunday. Sanchez has been on the disabled list since June 25 with a groin injury. It appears as if the injury is behind him and the former All-Star catcher should return to the major league lineup shortly after the All-Star break. Sanchez is hitting just .190 on the season but he does have 14 home runs and 41 RBI. He should continue hitting for power and should remain in fantasy lineups when he returns despite the weak batting average.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Tom Withers

7/14:Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Julio Urias is expected to remain a starter when he returns to the big leagues. Urias has yet to make an appearance in 2018 as he battles back from shoulder surgery. Urias, once a highly touted prospect, has pitched to a 5-4 record with a 3.86 ERA and a 95/45 K/BB ratio over 23 major league starts. Clearly the Dodgers still think he has potential if they're willing to keep him as a starter despite their glutton at the position. It's important to note that Urias still has a long way before he makes his return to the majors, and manager Dave Roberts said their plans could change. However, for now it appears that the once top prospect will remain a starter once he finally makes his anticipated return to the major league.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Bill Plunkett
7/14:Toronto Blue Jays closer Roberto Osuna made his first minor league appearance on Saturday, allowing a hit and striking out one in a scoreless inning for the Gulf Coast League Blue Jays. Osuna is still serving a 75-game suspension for an domestic assault charge in May. He is eligible to return on August 5 and will likely resume his role as the Blue Jays closer. Osuna is one of the better closers in the game outside of his off-the-field problems. If he's available in your league it might be time to pick him up while Ryan Tepera becomes expendable.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Arden Zwelling
7/14:Tampa Bay Rays third baseman Matt Duffy was forced to leave Saturday's game with an apparent ankle injury. He suffered it while swing the bat and remained in the game before being replace by Daniel Roberton. Tampa Bay was well on their way to victory, so perhaps Duffy's removal was precautionary, however, the severity of the injury is not yet known. The Rays will likely update his status following the game.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Marc Topkin

7/14:Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has been diagnosed with a strain in his right shoulder. He was forced to leave his team's game on Saturday after diving for a ball. It's not known exactly how long Pillar will be out for, but he likely won't return until after the All-Star break. Dwight Smith should be expected to earn a few more starts in center, however, he isn't a recommended pick up at this time.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Arden Zwelling

7/14:Lourdes Gurriel put together one his strongest games as a rookie on Saturday, going three-for-five with an RBI. Gurriel is now hitting .270 on the season with four home runs, 15 RBI and 12 runs scored. The rookie his lead off on Saturday, something he has done just one time prior this season. Perhaps this outing gives Toronto a reason to keep him at the lineup going forward. If he sticks at leadoff, Gurriel could be a cheap middle infield option to consider in deeper leagues.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Box Score

7/14:The Los Angeles Dodgers have demoted starting pitcher Walker Buehler to Triple-A. It's important to note that according to manager Dave Roberts, the demotion is due to managing Buehler's workload rather than his performance on the mound. For the season, Buehler has pitched to a 4-2 record with a 3.45 ERA and a 59/13 K/BB ratio. It's unclear if the Dodgers plan on promotion him immediately after the All-Star break. For now, Buehler is a recommended hold as he has shined during his rookie season and should see a return to the majors in short order.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Mike DiGiovanna
7/14:Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the tenth inning to down the Blue Jays 6-2 on Saturday. The home run was apart of a two-for-five showing for Bogaerts who scored two runs along with his four RBI. Bogaerts is now hitting .284 with 15 home runs, 62 RBI and 46 runs scored on the season. He's one of the best shortstops in baseball and makes for an excellent middle infield option in fantasy circles.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: ESPN Box Score

7/14:Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Jimmy Yacabonis has been scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday with an illness. There's no word on how severe Yacabonis' illness is, but it's unlikely he is placed on the disabled list. The Orioles will likely either recall and start Chris Tillman or resort to a bullpen game on Sunday. Neither option should be looked at for fantasy purposes.--Dan Fappiano - RotoBallerSource: Britt Ghiroli
7/14:Milwaukee outfielder Christian Yelich was the only Brewer to rack up an RBI in game one of Saturday's doubleheader slate. Yelich hit two singles while batting leadoff but could not get scored in once. The Brewers' game one lineup was lacking in power without the likes of Eric Thames and Jesus Aguilar so it does not come as much of a surprise that they faltered so much against the middle-of-the-road Pirates. Yelich finds himself in the starting lineup for game two as well, so hopefully, he can provide fantasy teams with a few more counting stats this afternoon.--Kev Mahserejian - RotoBallerSource: MLB.com

7/14:After starting Friday's game in Colorado, Bergman is being sent down to Triple-A Tacoma until his services are needed. It is unclear exactly when that will be, however, with James Paxton currently on the DL, it's fair to assume that he could be back up shortly after the All-Star break. Bergman has started two games for the Mariners this year and might need a few more until a real opinion could be had on him since one was in Coors. Fiesta is the number nine overall prospect in the Mariners lowly farm system, so he should get some middle relief chances while he's up in Seattle.--Kev Mahserejian - RotoBallerSource: Greg Johns
7/14:Tampa Bay Rays catcher Wilson Ramos (hamstring) was forced out of Saturday's game early due to left hamstring tightness. Ramos was elected as the starting catcher for next week's All-Star game so it will be interesting to see if he plays. He is set to be re-evaluated on Sunday, so it's fair to assume that he will be held out of that contest for precautionary reasons. Consider Ramos day-to-day going forward with Jesus Sucre starting more regularly in his place.--Kev Mahserejian - RotoBallerSource: Tampa Bay Rays
