FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE FALLOUT: LUCAS HARRELL HEADS TO TEXAS TO SHORE UP ROTATION

It was no secret that the Texas Rangers were among the most aggressive teams in baseball looking to shore up their rotation heading into the stretch run of the season.  They were connected pretty much to every available name out there, most recently to Andrew Cashner and Chris Archer.  The didn't land either of those two on Wednesday but instead got some help in the form of the Atlanta Braves' Lucas Harrell.  Harrell heads to Texas with reliever Dario Alvarez for infielder Travis Demeritte.  While Harrell has been pretty much the definition of a journeyman, he is coming off his most dominant outing of the season Tuesday when he tossed six shutout innings against the Minnesota Twins.  With a 3.38 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, this pretty much is as good as it gets for Harrell who has a career ERA of 4.74.  Harrell is quite hittable which is why he has not made a home for long at any one MLB locale he has gone through and in Texas in their bandbox of a park, things could get ugly quick.  Not the move the Rangers needed to help a rotation destroyed by injuries and Harrell should not be added in any formats.
