Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cubs | Hot bats at hot corner

Chicago Cubs 3Bs Luis Valbuena (five) and Cody Ransom (three) have combined for seven home runs in 27 games while playing the third base position this season. Last year, Cubs third basemen combined for 12 round-trippers.

Fantasy Tip: Power production isn't unprecedented for Valbuena -- he hit 17 home runs at the Triple-A level in 2011 and has posted .400-plus rates of slugging regularly -- but his pace is still surprising and unlikely to continue. Ian Stewart (quadriceps) appears to be nowhere near contributing to this effort thanks to his struggles on the farm.
