Khris Davis    OF   Oakland A's
Davis was traded to the Athletics on Friday for two prospects.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Davis should land firmly as Oakland's everyday left fielder, pushing the combination of Coco Crisp, Sam Fuld, and Mark Canha further down the depth chart. However, the 28-year-old figures to see a significant drop in home runs, as he's going from the most homer-friendly park in the majors to the fourth worst, according to MLB park factors. That shouldn't take too much from his offensive potential though; he'll be hitting in the middle of the order given Oakland's lack of reliable power hitters.
Sean Nolin    P   Oakland A's

Jenrry Mejia    P   Free Agent
Mejia has received a lifetime ban from MLB after testing positive for PEDs for the third time, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Mejia was already going to miss most of 2016 while serving his 162-game suspension following his second positive PED test. Now, the Dominican Republic native joins Pete Rose as the only two living players on the MLB's banned list. The right-handed reliever posted a 3.68 ERA over his five-year MLB career. At the age of 26, he still has his prime years ahead of him, but it will be one year year before he can apply for reinstatement, and another year beyond that before he has even a remote shot to pitch for an MLB team again.

Denard Span    OF   San Francisco Giants
Span will start in center field and lead off in 2016, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

This was mostly expected, but the existence of Angel Pagan cast some doubt on whether the Giants would use Span like the Nationals had previously done. If Span stays healthy and performs at the level of his last two seasons in Washington, with a .301/.358/.421 line and 42 steals in 49 attempts he's an ideal leadoff hitter. However, those are some big ifs, given that Span is now 31 and had to miss more than half of 2015 with hip and back ailments. He should considered be a high-risk, moderate-reward option for 2016.
Scott Snodgress    P   San Diego Padres  (AAA)
