FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

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
