NL-only leaguers take note: Emil Brown has been traded to the Mets. He'll be sent to Triple-A, but given the uncertain (read: pathetic) state of the Mets' outfield, he's a guy worth keeping tabs on or grabbing depending on your league's depth. He has some pop and speed that could be useful and would bat in a good lineup, although CitiField isn't the friendliest place for power hitters.

It's looking like Brett Myers will be out for quite some time, if not for the rest of the season. GM Ruben Amaro said that "the Phillies immediately would look internally to fill the void in the rotation. He said Carlos Carrasco, Kyle Kendrick, Andrew Carpenter and Antonio Bastardo are candidates. It appears Chan Ho Park is not a candidate and will remain in the bullpen."
None make great options for mixed leaguers, but those in NL-only leagues could consider jumping on Bastardo and Carrasco, who mixed leaguers might want to keep an eye on. His trouble has always been control, but it has been pretty good (2.8 BB/9) in 85 Triple-A innings since mid-2008. Kendrick would only qualify for pickup in the deepest of NL-only leagues, and Carpenter really should be avoided in all leagues.
This also solidifies J.A. Happ's rotation spot for a while, and he could prove valuable in deeper mixed leagues.
