DFS MLB Pitching Coach: July 1
Howard Bender

Twins option 1B Byung Ho Park to Triple-A Rochester.

This move should come as a bit of surprise, but Park has fallen into a significant slump after showing some big pop earlier in the year. With Miguel Sano nearing a return from the DL, Park was likely to lose even more at-bats.

The Sixers have expressed interest in Dion Waiters, Jamal Crawford, Allen Crabbe and other guards.

The Sixers are searching for a wing player, and preferably one with experience to go with all their young players. Waiters was the 4th overall pick in the 2012 draft. Over his four years in the league, the former Syracuse star has averaged 12.8 points across 289 games between Cleveland and Oklahoma City.

Chandler Parsons was impressed with the Portland Trail Blazers’ presentation Friday. The meeting included a four-year, maximum offer.

The Blazers shocked most with their 5th place finish in the Western Conference this past season and subsequent run to the second-round of the playoffs. Parsons would only strengthen a young, talented roster led by a dynamic backcourt duo in Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum.

Devon Travis is not in Friday's starting lineup.

Travis has been swinging the bat extremely well over the past couple of weeks, but he will get a day off after being in the starting lineup each of the last seven days. Darwin Barney will man second base and bat ninth against Indians' righty Josh Tomlin.

Minnesota Timberwolves have expressed strong interest in free agent Kent Bazemore.

Add the Timberwolves to the list of teams interested. Bazemore had a breakout season in 2015-16 for the Hawks, and is going to command a significant salary increase from the $2M he raked in over the past year. The four-year pro averaged 11.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.5 treys (35.7 percent) and 1.3 steals across 75 games (68 starts) in this past regular season. Bazemore was also very solid over 10 playoff games in 2016, putting up 11.9 points and 6.6 boards.

Jose Bautista (toe) is not expected to be back on the field until after the All-Star break.

Bautista has been out of action since June 16th due to his toe injury and it looks like he will get an entire month off before returning to the Blue Jays' lineup. Ezequiel Carrera has been a solid performer in the leadoff spot over the past couple of weeks while Bautista has been on the DL.

D.J. Augustin's deal with Orlando is for 4 years, $29 million.

Augustin has worn six different NBA jerseys over the past four seasons, but he may now have a long-term home in Orlando. The veteran guard has always been a capable performer, as he has averaged 9.8 points, 4.0 assists and 1.2 treys (37.4 percent) across 573 career games (170 starts).

James Ennis has heard from Pelicans, Grizzlies, Mavericks, Warriors, Hawks, and Clippers so far.

Ennis bounced from Miami to Memphis then New Orleans during the 2015-16 season. The Pelicans' injury issues opened a door for the journeyman forward to get some significant minutes late in the season and he took advantage. Over nine games (five starts) for the Pelicans, Ennis averaged 15.9 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.7 treys (48.0 percent) while seeing better than 31 minutes per game.

Cleanthony Early was not extended a qualifying offer by the Knicks making him an unrestricted free agent.

Early is, at best, a fringe NBA player. He is dealing with a hamstring injury at the moment and that could limit his ability to prove himself during the summer league. Early figures to have no fantasy appeal at all regardless of his future role in the NBA.
