Cubs | Junior Lake coming up

Chicago Cubs SS Junior Lake is expected to be promoted from Triple-A Iowa in time for this weekend's games. He's expected to replace OF Brian Bogusevic (hamstring), who aggravated a hamstring injury he originally suffered on July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Lake is a solid prospect who has posted a .295/.341/.462 slash line with 14 steals in 40 games for the I-Cubs in 2013. It's not certain that he'll get playing time, but the former middle infielder has been playing at third base and in right field this season. He warrants a look in NL-only leagues, but he's not expected to be around for long.
