UPDATES & NEWS
The Red Sox are close to trading starting pitcher Jake Peavy to an unknown National League team.
While a move back to the national League would theoretically help Peavy's value, keep in mind that we are dealing with a player whose peripherals are all declining and has experienced a loss of velocity. Even the prospect of facing a pitcher as opposed to a DH is negated by how poorly he has pitched this year. And then, of course, there's the injury history. Peavy may have a one or two start resurgence with a move to the NL and a favorable change of scenery, but nothing that would be sustainable. He is still a player in decline and a serious risk to your fantasy ratios.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Update: Corey Dickerson was removed from Saturday's game with a left quad injury.
While the news regarding Dickerson's plantar fasciitis was positive, he was removed after he fouled a ball off his back leg and is now day-to-day with what the team is calling a quad injury. When his leg appeared to be swollen, manager Walt Weiss opted to play it safe and remove Dickerson who had gone 0-for-3 in Saturday's game against the Giants. Consider him day-to-day for right now and figure he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday. Analysis: Howard Bender
