FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: ROCKIES DEAL COREY DICKERSON TO RAYS FOR JAKE McGEE

It was only a matter of time before the Colorado Rockies traded away an outfielder form among Corey Dickerson, Carlos Gonzalez, and Charlie Blackmon after they signed Gerardo Parra in free agency and that move finally came on Thursday as the team send Dickerson to the Tampa Bay Rays for a package highlighted by reliever Jake McGee.  With the Rockies in search of bullpen help all offseason given their massive struggles there all of 2015, McGee was an early winter trade target that took a while to come together.  Dickerson will likely bat in the cleanup spot for the Rays as he looks to put an injury-filled 2015 behind him.

Analysis:  It was just a week ago we did a feature on Dickerson and projected in with Colorado numbers.  Now we have to go back to the drawing board there as Dickerson will lose home runs, runs, and RBI in the pitcher's park there.  Meanwhile McGee could now be the favorite for saves in Colorado over Jason Motte and Chad Qualls.  Finally Brad Boxberger gets a whole lot more leash at closer for the Rays this season.
