News: Dickerson was traded to the Rays on Thursday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. (Jan 28 12:48p)
Impact: After signing Gerardo Parra, the Rockies were expected to move one of their outfielders for some pitching, and that's exactly what they did. Dickerson was sent to the Rays with a minor league pitcher in exchange for relief pitcher Jake McGee and a minor league pitcher. This move could impact the 26-year-old in a few ways, most notably being that he won't be hitting in hitter-friendly Coors Field any longer. The concerns over Dickerson's plantar fasciitis may increase slightly, given that the turf in Tropicana Field isn't the most forgiving surface in the league. Those issues aside, the Rays are getting a solid left-handed hitter, even if his .249/.286/.410 career road slash line may suggest otherwise. There are other factors at play when looking at a Rockies hitter's home/road splits, and Dickerson should still be a worthwhile option in standard leagues after the trade, especially considering he will hit in the middle of the Rays lineup, but his value is undoubtedly lessened by this move.

Yoenis CespedesNYM - LF, CF
News: Cespedes agreed to a three-year contract with the Mets on Friday, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. (Jan 22 8:38p)
Impact: Cespedes' deal includes an opt out after just one year, but he will spend at least another season with the team he spurred to a World Series berth in 2015. It remains to be seen exactly where he will hit in the order, but he knocked in runs in bunches for the Mets last season with 44 RBI in 57 games. He will be the team's every day left fielder in 2016.
