Cody Martin Headshot

Cody Martin has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma.

This is a corresponding move to Karns moving to the DL with a back strain. This is a solid opportunity for Martin since Karns has proven he has been untrustworthy this season. If Martin performs well, it's very likely he earns the relief role over Karns while he's on the DL.

Nate Karns Headshot

Mariners have placed Nathan Karns on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

Karns has a 5.15 ERA but still managed a 6-2 record. He's been awful over his last few appearances and has a 10.32 ERA in the month of July. After a somewhat promising start to the year, Karns has almost no fantasy value in the relief role.

Devon Travis Headshot

Devon Travis is in the starting lineup on Saturday.

Travis is oddly batting ninth today so it's not an ideal position for DFS players. He's facing off against Yovani Gallardo who is by no means a stud, but the ninth spot is a fantasy value killer in most cases. Travis is batting .286 this year and he is a reverse splits guy, he is hitting .320 against other righties.

Jonathan Cooper Headshot

Jonathan Cooper was carted off the practice field after sustaining an injury on Saturday.

This is potentially terrible news for the Patriots and Cooper. The Pats have a very weak line and struggled mightily last season because of their O-line issues. Cooper was hoping the Pats would revitalize his career, but if this turns out to be a serious injury, both parties are in trouble. Yesterday, a player was carted off due to a sickness so there's no need to assume the worst. But in this case, we know it's injury related.

Melvin Upton Headshot

Melvin Upton is in right field and batting seventh on Saturday.

The 11-year vet has had a mediocre season but has shown decent power over the course of the year. An earlier report stated that Upton Jr. won't be hitting much against righties while on the Blue Jays despite mainly facing them while with the Padres. Upton Jr. loses some value as a fantasy option now that he's with Toronto.

Jay Bruce Headshot

Reds and Dodgers were discussing a deal that revolved around Jay Bruce and Yasiel Puig but they could not come to an agreement.

This clearly would have been a blockbuster trade if it came to fruition but sadly the talks ended, at least temporarily. It's unclear what the other pieces were, but a trade is no longer likely. Bruce has a whopping 25 HR's this year and would be a massive add for the Dodgers. Puig has been relatively disappointing lately as he's battled nagging injuries and has yet to make a major impact for the offense.

Leonard Floyd Headshot

Leonard Floyd (stomach bug) is practicing in full on Saturday.

Floyd has a very high ceiling as a prospect but he wasn't the safest pick. Floyd has some bust potential but also can be an elite pass rusher if he bulks up. The Bears drafted Floyd for his potential not his safety, and he can make an immediate impact for the Bears defense, but it's likely that it will take him a couple years to be a complete and effective player.
