Cubs | Matt Guerrier, Pedro Strop won't be setup men

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said RPs Matt Guerrier and Pedro Strop won't be handed the eighth-inning setup role in front of RP Kevin Gregg. "I think (Blake) Parker pretty much put himself in that role right now," Sveum said. "It's pretty much going to be Parker and Gregg in those last two innings."

Fantasy Tip: Blake Parker is the main handcuff to Kevin Gregg in case the incumbent closer is traded at this month's deadline. If that happened, Guerrier or Strop would likely move into a setup role. Own Parker in deep mixed leagues if you're searching for saves. Guerrier and Strop can be ignored, for now.
