5:27 – The Angels go for it and hold Shohei Ohtani, and we like it for them, but the keeper league impact is limited

13:42 – The Rangers get Max Scherzer, but the keeper impact is more in the return.

19:44 – Jordan Montgomery joins Scherzer in Texas, and the keeper impact is pretty limited.

22:19 – Marlins getting David Robertson creates some closer churn

30:36 – Jordan Romano goes down and Jordan Hicks looks like his replacement?

33:56 – Do we get excited about Lance Lynn because he’s a Dodger now?

38:50 – Aaron Civale for Kyle Manzardo is more of a benefit for Manzardo’s value

44:27 – Closer changes in Arizona and Seattle that might have some future impact

50:04 – Do we believe in Jeimer Candelario?

54:39 – Some smaller moves happened with some minor fantasy impact, as well, especially around Amed Rosario, AJ Pollock, and Mark Canha.
