Latest Update Ed Davis big contributor off bench for Lakers Thu Oct, 30, 07:30 AM
Possesses major home-run power with the bat (for a catcher). Produces a solid number of doubles and RBI per at-bat. Is a decent game-caller and leader behind the plate.
Flaws: : Has holes in his swing, leading to a lot of strikeouts and low batting averages. Has also declined somewhat defensively over time and struggles to throw runners out.
The loss of J.ulius Randle really helps Ed Davis. While Davis didn't start, he was much more effective than Carlos Boozer. He was one rebound shy of a double-double, and filled up the stat sheet last night. While the game was a blowout, he may not receive 33 minutes again, but it will be interesting to see in a closer game how much action he will be given. However, the Lakers have to keep a game close.Analyst: Colby Conway
Davis is probably the Lakers' best big man and most likely to absorb Julius Randle's minutes. While no Lakers big is going to put up overwhelming stats, Davis is probably worth keeping an eye on going forward and possibly even stash in deeper leagues.Analyst: Spencer Silva
Both of these players were part of the Angels playoff roster, but struggled in the postseason. They made this move to clear space for their newly acquired outfielders, Roger Kieschnick and Alfredo Marte. Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Buck wasn't going to head down to the minors, so the Mariners opted to just rid themselves of him altogether. While he slashed just .226/.293/.286 with only one home run, six RBI, and nine runs scored in 84 at-bats, he's still likely to draw attention from teams looking for some veteran help behind the dish. The Cardinals seem like a possible team to kick the tires on him.Analyst: Howard Bender
