Cubs | Ian Stewart to start on DL

Chicago Cubs 3B Ian Stewart's (quadriceps) MRI exam showed fluid in his left quadriceps Tuesday, March 19, and he'll open the season on the disabled list. Stewart is still experiencing pain in his muscle. 3B Luis Valbuena and INF Brent Lillibridge may form some sort of a platoon at third base to open the season. INFs Edwin Maysonet and Alberto Gonzalez are fighting for a utility spot on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart hasn't been able to avoid nagging injuries for most of his career. Valbuena should be seen as the front-runner for the majority of PT at the hot corner, especially with the way he's played this spring. Josh Vitters (quadriceps) is dealing with injuries, too, and he might be ticketed for the minors.
