Team News
Diamondbacks Interested In Nick Castellanos

The Arizona Diamondbacks are among the teams interested in outfielder Nick Castellanos, according to one source. Castellanos hit a combined .289/.337/.525 with a career-high 27 home runs, 100 runs scored and 73 RBI in 151 games between the Tigers and Cubs last season. He was even better in his 51 games with the Cubbies, slashing .321/.356/.646 with 16 long balls and 36 RBI. Castellanos probably has more fantasy appeal if he were to stay in Chicago, but Arizona also wouldn't be a terrible landing spot for his fantasy upside in 2020 and beyond. The 27-year-old could do quite well on the open market with no draft-pick compensation tied to him.

Addison Russell Non-Tendered By Cubs

The Chicago Cubs non-tendered infielder Addison Russell on Monday, making him a free agent, according to a source. Russell has fallen on hard times the last few seasons, mainly due to off-the-field issues, but he's also been slowed by injuries and hit just .237/.308/.391 with nine home runs and 23 RBI in 215 at-bats for the Cubbies in 2019. Javier Baez is Chicago's shortstop of the future now and not Russell. He should latch on with another organization, but at this point in his career he might just be middle infield depth off the bench.

Cole Hamels Thinks White Sox Are A Fit

Starting pitcher Cole Hamels told Chuck Garfien on the Chicago White Sox Talk Podcast that he believes he'd be a good fit with the team. Hamels confirmed that the White Sox have reached out to him. The veteran southpaw is believed to be looking for a one-year deal to pitch for a contender, and the Pale Hose are quickly becoming contenders with their young and talented squad. Hamels would provide a nice veteran presence in the team's starting rotation. More than half the teams in baseball have reached out to Hamels, so it's anyone's guess as to where he'll land. Hamels isn't the stud pitcher he was earlier in his career, but he can still be attractive in the right matchups and whiff hitters at a nice clip. Landing in hitter-friendly Chicago, however, might not be the best place for his fantasy value in 2020.

Giants Interested In Nick Castellanos

The San Francisco Giants are among the teams showing interest in outfielder Nick Castellanos, according to two sources. The Cubs are also interested in re-signing Castellanos after he posted a 1.002 OPS in 51 games for the team following a deadline deal from the Tigers. Giants general manager Scott Harris was the assistant general manager for the Cubs in 2019. The White Sox and Marlins are among possible suitors for Castellanos. Castellanos would be a nice right-handed complement to San Fran's lefty-heavy lineup, although a move to a pitcher-friendly park could depress some of his fantasy upside.

Cubs Acquire Jharel Cotton

The Chicago Cubs have acquired starting pitcher Jharel Cotton from the Oakland Athletics for cash considerations. Cotton is a former top prospect for the Athletics, but has struggled with injuries up to this point in his career. Cotton last pitched in the Majors in 2017. The righty returned to pitch in 2019 after recovering from Tommy John surgery and a hamstring injury. In 27 2/3 innings in Single-A and Triple-A, Cotton registered a 7.16 ERA in 18 games (three starts). Cotton is nothing more than a flyer for the Cubs, but has a good ceiling if he can put everything together. He can be avoided in all formats for now.
