In one of the most anticipated deals of the summer, the Houston Astros traded pitcher Roy Oswalt to the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday in exchange for J.A. Happ and two minor league prospects.
Oswalt will make his Phillies debut Friday night against the Washington Nationals.
From a fantasy perspective, Roy Oswalt’s value should receive a slight boost. Despite a 3.42 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 129 innings with Houston this season, Oswalt owns a 6-12 record. With the N.L.’s third best offense in terms of runs-scored (opposed to the 15th) behind him, Oswalt has a great chance to double his win total in the last two months of the season with Philly.
On the surface, it may seem as though Oswalt’s new home ballpark may hinder his fantasy value. A closer look, however, says otherwise...

Game No. 17 of 162 in Fantasy Baseball Insiders' summer-long journey featured a revived Jose Reyes, and an impressive pitching performance this week's hottest pickup.
Game No. 17 - Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets
Jose Reyes had his best game of the young season Tuesday night against the Cubs, going 4-for-5 with a stolen base and two RBI. Two of his hits were bloop singles, while another was a hard-hit grounder up the middle. He made the most noise, however, with a two-run triple in the second, a well-hit ball that split the gap in left-center.
