Cubs | Ian Stewart rehabs

Chicago Cubs 3B Ian Stewart (quadriceps) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a rehab game with Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, April 23, and he's only 2-for-24 with a double and three RBIs in seven rehab games.

Fantasy Tip: Cody Ransom and Luis Valbuena have been seeing time at third base in the absence of Stewart. It's unclear when Stewart will return from the DL, but expect Ransom to be sent out when that happens. Although both hit from the left side, Stewart and Valbuena could form a platoon at the hot corner. Stewart has more power, but you have to wonder if his injuries will continue to take a toll on his home run swing. He's worth owning in deep mixed leagues, though.
