Diamondbacks are willing to deal closer Addison Reed.
This news update is a sad proxy for the Diamondbacks' season as a whole. D'Backs GM Kevin Towers was the most aggressive wheeler and dealer this winter, making a pair of questionable trades to acquire Addison Reed and Mark Trumbo. It turns out they weren't the final pieces of the winning puzzle and now they will likely take a loss on Reed. It would be surprising if Towers retains his job past September. ANALYST:
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
