Update: Cole Hamels was claimed off waivers by the Cubs.
Well now this should be a very interesting deal to negotiate because the Cubs have a lot of extremely talented youth in the organization. Given the age of Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins, the Phillies would like as for their pick of Stalin Castro, Javier Baez or Addison Russell. Stay tuned. This could also be nothing as the two teams fail to consummate a deal and this eager speculation is all for naught.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Angels RHP Garrett Richards (knee) threw five innings in a minor league game Saturday.
Richards is very close to returning to action from a severe knee injury that he suffered at the end of 2014. He threw 69 pitches of one hit, one walk, zero run ball on Saturday and is progressing well. Due to the way that the Angels schedule is set up, they won't need a fifth starter for several weeks, giving Richards a chance to jump right into the rotation without kicking any other starters out. Richards' monster 2014 breakout campaign was legit, so as long as owners drafting him are comfortable with his health and knee, he could be a nice discount on draft day. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Jonathan Stewart will ideally be limited to 15 carries a game, according to head coach Ron Rivera.
Stewart had a solid season last year, averaging 4.6 YPC, though he scored just three touchdowns in thirteen games. The 28-year old just 9 games over the past three seasons, and will not be able to handle the load of a workhorse back. The Panthers will likely find a running back in the draft that is capable of handling the other 8-10 carries that the Panthers expect. Considering that Stewart averaged just 13.5 carries per game in 2014, this won't destroy his already limited fantasy value. Analysis: Ben Diamond
