Jazz have made Trey Burke available for trade.

The Jazz are loaded at the point guard position so they would be trading from strength if they do indeed move Burke. The minutes just won’t be there for Burke so if they can add more depth at the other positions this makes sense. Burke averaged 10.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 21 minutes per game.

Heyward continues to struggle for the Cubs and will sit against the left-hander Cody Reed of the Reds on Wednesday. Heyward has a slash line of .235/.326/.325 with only four homeruns in his first season with the Cubs. Ben Zobrist will move to right field with Javier Baez manning second base for the Cubs. The Cubs are always a good lineup to use in DFS and Wednesday is no exception.

Logan Morrison (rest) is not in the Rays starting lineup Wednesday.

Left-hander David Price is on the mound so Morrison will start the game on the bench for the Rays. Taylor Motter will replace Morrison at first base and bat ninth. Morrison has had an inconsistent season in 2016 with a slash line of .237/.318/.377 to go along with eight homeruns and 26 RBIs. Due to Price being on the mound, the Rays lineup as a whole can be avoided.
