    Yoo so whats poppin fellas... & females if applicable..?? In an effort to keep this league as enjoyable & as competitive as possible, i thought it would be in the Leagues Best interest if we were able to maintain some level of communication amongst us all, whether that consists of just some basic discussions about how the League &/or MLB Season are playing out & the hot topics impacting each, or even just some shootin the shit in general & maybe a lil bit of harmless competitive banter & good ol' fashion shit talkin.. Whatever
    It takes to spice up this marathon of a season & take us away from the constant grind necessary to steadily compete against atleast somewhat functional league mates... So anyways i figured id kick the shit off with some subject points for discussion to get the ball rollin & hopefully we can go from there.. Plus we get the added bonus or really evaluating who might or might not be entirely invested & thus can better determine who it is we're likely to be battlin with for the next 6+ months or so... But for starters anyhow, My name is Derek(or D), comin outta Boston(well not from the city itself persay, but from the connecting town just outside the city where the Suburbs begin)...& im 32 years old and been at this sh*t seemingly forever... Ya'll..??

    Justin Bour Jul 25 6:30pm ET

    Miami Marlins first baseman Justin Bour will hit the disabled list with a right oblique strain. While the injury is bad for fantasy owners, it is even worse for the Marlins, who were hoping that they could move Bour at the trade deadline to help rebuild the team. Bour suffered the injury in Monday night's series opener against the Rangers and will probably miss the next three-to-four weeks. The 29-year-old first baseman leaves behind a stellar .289/.366/.548 batting line with 21 home runs and 63 RBI in 87 games. Tomas Telis has been recalled from the minors in a corresponding roster move.

    Anthony Swarzak Jul 25 6:30pm ET

    Chicago White Sox pitcher Anthony Swarzak is being looked at by the Milwaukee Brewers in a trade.Swarzak recorded his first career save over the Cubs on Monday with 1 1/3 scoreless innings and his 2.23 ERA this season is very exciting for fantasy owners and playoff contenders. While Tyler Clippard is the presumed closer for the White Sox, Swarzak has the better numbers this season, and Swarzak moving could mean that fantasy teams lose a closer. Corey Knebel is firmly entrenched as the Brewers' closer and Swarzak would solely be a setup man in Milwaukee. With a trade, Clippard would have less pressure on the closer's role in Chicago.

    Xander Bogaerts Jul 25 6:20pm ET

    Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts will be back for the Red Sox tonight against the Mariners. Bogaerts was a late scratch Monday after coming down with an illness, but he will start at shortstop and hit sixth Tuesday versus Seattle right-hander Felix Hernandez. He only has a .475 OPS over the last 30 days, including a .171 batting average, but is still hitting .291 this season.

    Stephen Strasburg Jul 25 6:00pm ET

    Owners of Stephen Strasburg braced themselves for the worst kind of news when he left Sunday's game with arm trouble after only two innings. Strasburg has only pitched more than 185 innings once in his eight year career due to injuries. But the Nats announced today that Strasburg not only had "nerve impingement" but that it's been "alleviated". They did not specify where the nerve was or if the situation could recur, so take those euphemisms for what they're worth. Players with strong stomachs could make a play for Strasburg but shouldn't be surprised if another injury ends his season.

    Trea Turner Jul 25 5:50pm ET

    Trea Turner is not yet cleared to throw but is taking grounders. He's been out of action for the Nationals since late June when he was hit by a pitch that broke his wrist. He's still wearing a cast and likely not returning until mid-August. Turner is one of the few five-tool fantasy stars. Your best bet to get him is if his owner is on the fantasy baseball playoff cusp and can't spare the bench spot. He's worth pursuing if this situation presents itself.

    Matt Carpenter Jul 25 5:43pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals 1B Matt Carpenter (quadriceps) returns to the starting lineup Tuesday, July 25, and is batting leadoff. 3B Jedd Gyorko (groin) is not in the starting lineup.

    Jedd Gyorko Jul 25 5:43pm ET

    Mike Aviles Jul 25 5:33pm ET

    Miami Marlins SS J.T. Riddle (biceps) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, July 25, with left biceps tendinitis. That move is retroactive to Saturday, July 22. 3B Mike Aviles was called up from Class AAA New Orleans in a corresponding move.

    JT Riddle Jul 25 5:33pm ET

    Tomas Telis Jul 25 5:23pm ET

    Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, July 25, with a strained right oblique. C Tomas Telis was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans in a corresponding move.

    Miami Marlins 1B Justin Bour (oblique) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, July 25, with a strained right oblique. C Tomas Telis was recalled from Class AAA New Orleans in a corresponding move.

    Michael Taylor Jul 25 5:10pm ET

    Michael Taylor was seen jogging around the warning track before Tuesday's game and could begin taking light swings in the coming days, according to Dusty Baker. Taylor has been out since early July with an oblique strain. He was a productive member at the bottom of the Nats lineup before getting injured and it will be interesting to see whether he or Brian Goodwin will man center field once Jayson Werth returns.

    Jairo Diaz Jul 25 4:53pm ET

    Colorado Rockies RHP Carlos Estevez was recalled from Class AAA Albuquerque Tuesday, July 25. RHP Jairo Diaz was optioned to Class AAA in a corresponding move.

    Carlos Estevez Jul 25 4:53pm ET

    Chris Bassitt Jul 25 4:43pm ET

    Danny Barnes Jul 25 4:43pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays LHP Matt Dermody was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo Tuesday, July 25, while RHP Danny Barnes (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder impingement.

    Matt Dermody Jul 25 4:43pm ET

    Toronto Blue Jays LHP Matt Dermody was recalled from Class AAA Buffalo Tuesday, July 25, while RHP Danny Barnes (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder impingement.

    Chris Bassitt Jul 25 4:30pm ET

    A's pitcher Chris Bassitt (elbow) has officially been removed from the 60-day DL and transferred to Triple-A Nashville. He is likely to be recalled by the A's in the near future, but is expected to serve as a reliever for the rest of the season. Bassitt started five games last year before succumbing to UCL surgery, pitching to a 6.11 ERA and a 1.75 WHIP. He was much better in 2015, tossing 86 innings with a 3.56 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Bassitt will have no fantasy value as a long reliever in the A's bullpen, but should he find himself back in a starting role he could hold some value as a streamer in deep mixed and AL-only formats, particularly if he regains his 2015 form.

    Dexter Fowler Jul 25 4:23pm ET

    St. Louis Cardinals OF Dexter Fowler (wrist) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday, July 25, with a strained left wrist. OF Harrison Bader was selected from Class AAA Memphis in a corresponding move.
