Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cubs | Ryan Dempster placed on DL

The Chicago Cubs have placed SP Ryan Dempster (lat) on the 15-day disabled list with right lat tightness. In a corresponding move, the team recalled P Scott Maine from Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Dempster should be held in all formats. Lat injuries can linger, but the Cubbies sound optimistic about the vet's prognosis, especially since it's not a strain. Per initial reports, he should have enough time to give a sufficient audition of his health before likely becoming trade-deadline bait.

Randy Wells, meanwhile, will take his place in the rotation Wednesday versus the Chicago White Sox. The not-so-dominant right-hander is only worth pursuit from desperate NL-only players.
