MLB – Fantasy Baseball – Trade buzz heating up in Miami, Detroit and Chicago

Even when you’re a fan of one specific major league baseball team, it can be difficult to keep track of all of the news that surrounds your favorite club on a daily basis.

However, when you’re a fantasy baseball owner and you now have to multiply that effort by 30 in order to be as up to date as possible with each and every club? It’s a fool’s errand that borders on the impossible.

Vizcaino has 15 holds and two saves this season to go along with a 2.38 ERA.

Baltimore Orioles: With two scoreless eighth innings over the weekend, manager Buck Showalter may finally have seen enough to reinsert Zach Britton into the team’s closer role going forward….
