Player Notes
CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Neal Cotts has been claimed on revocable waivers by an unnamed team.

Advice: There would seem to be a good chance Cotts is traded, as he could be a useful bullpen piece for a contending team. The left-hander boasts a 3.48 ERA and 58/20 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers have placed reliever Neal Cotts on revocable waivers.

Advice: Heyman also hears that Yu Darvish, Adrian Beltre, Shin-Soo Choo and Elvis Andrus all cleared waivers and are eligible to be traded. It's a bit surprising that Darvish passed through waivers, but it's not like the Rangers are going to move him. On the other hand, Cotts is someone who could be traded, whether he passes through waivers successfully or not. The 34-year-old has posted a 3.54 ERA with 57 strikeouts over 53 1/3 innings this season and could a useful bullpen piece for a contender.
