RHP Alec Asher was sent from Texas to Philadelphia in the Cole Hamels deal.

The 23-year-old Asher is 4-10 with a 4.43 ERA and a 97/37 K/BB ratio in 107 2/3 innings between Double- and Triple-A this year. He has the arm to excel in the majors, but hasn't yet come up with consistent enough secondary pitches to dominate minor league hitters. He's still a nice pickup by the Phillies here. Something might click with different coaching, and if it does, he could be one of the team's better starting pitchers come mid-2016.

Left-hander Matt Harrison was traded from the Rangers to the Phillies in the Cole Hamels trade.

Harrison's inclusion was all about evening up the salaries a bit; he's still owed $33 million through 2017, but because of injuries, he no longer resembles the guy who won 18 games and went to the All-Star Game in 2012. He is healthy enough to pitch at the moment, so he'll probably go right into Philadelphia's rotation in Hamels' place. He shouldn't have any fantasy value, though.
Jul 31 - 12:05 PM

RHP Jerad Eickhoff was traded from the Rangers to the Phillies in an eight-player deal.

Eickhoff is the most modest talent of the five prospects the Phillies got back, though he's someone who could go into their rotation by the end of the year. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound right-hander was 9-4 with a 4.25 ERA and a 93/33 K/BB ratio in 101 2/3 innings for Triple-A Round Rock. He offers limited upside, but maybe he can survive as a fifth starter.
Jul 31 - 12:03 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal was told by one source that there's a "50/50" chance the Orioles trade for Ben Revere.

The O's have already added Gerardo Parra, but they're still seeking some outfield help. Revere has also been connected with the Blue Jays, but it sounds like their interest has died down a bit. He's under team control through 2017.
Jul 31 - 12:02 PM

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Cardinals are going to acquire Jonathan Broxton from the Brewers.

It's unclear what the Cards will be giving up in return. Broxton holds an ugly 5.89 ERA for the season, but he's struck out a batter per inning and been very good of late, allowed runs in just one of his last 10 appearances. The big right-hander will help set up in St. Louis.
Jul 31 - 11:56 AM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Blue Jays "aren't interested" in Ben Revere at the current asking price.

This comes after multiple reports had talks between the Jays and Phillies about the outfielder progressing, but obviously significant ground needs to be made up. Olney says the Phils "are talking to some other team." It's unclear which club that is, but the Orioles reportedly still have some interest even after acquiring Gerardo Parra.
Jul 31 - 11:48 AM

Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that the Padres and Twins are talking and one rumor has San Diego taking on Ricky Nolasco's contract as part of a deal.

It's interesting given that it's been reported elsewhere that the Padres are looking to cut some payroll. However, if they get the prospect(s) they want, perhaps taking on Nolasco's deal could be agreeable. The Twins have been looking for relief help, so Joaquin Benoit or possibly Craig Kimbrel could be fits.
Jul 31 - 11:35 AM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that teams have "checked back in" with the White Sox on Jeff Samardzija, but it's "still not that likely" he's traded.

The White Sox sit only 3.5 games out of a Wild Card spot and appear poised to hold their assets and possibly even add to the club. Samardzija's fantasy owners surely would prefer a trade given the home park he's in and the poor defense behind him. The good news is that he's been really good of late in spite of those factors, posting a 2.66 ERA over his last eight starts.
