Mets callup Chris Flexen, scheduled to start Thursday, has had a bump up in velocity this year to 92-95 and will show four pitches including an above-average changeup. Unranked to start the year, he's become one of the system's top starting pitching prospects with his newfound stuff.

Brad Hand could be a heck of a fantasy closer if he's not traded -- top-10 caliber, in fact -- but his ability to get righties and lefties out while working multiple innings makes him a pretty good bet to be moved. He's the guy to add in San Diego with Brandon Maurer gone, but this is a probable seven-day string (if that many) of save chances at best.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Good move by the Royals to acquire three useful arms from the Padres in starter Trevor Cahill and relievers Brandon Maurer and Ryan Buchter. The Royals needed pitching depth and they get that in this deal. Matt Strahm is the main talent acquired by the Padres. He's out for the season after knee surgery and has promise as a starter, but given his struggles throwing enough strikes as a reliever with the Royals, his future is probably in the bullpen.
