Cubs | Junior Lake, Mike Olt haven't faced a RH SP
Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake and 3B Mike Olt haven't started against a right-handed pitcher through seven games this year. Lake is frustrated by his lack of playing time and feels that he's pressing because he's only facing lefty hurlers. General manager Jed Hoyer said the matchups that two of the right-handed pitchers they've faced are power-sinker types that did better against righty bats than lefties.
Fantasy Tip: It may require patience, but now is probably a good time to stash Lake if he has been dropped. He was hitting above his head last year, but part of it was justified because he made so much hard contact. He's a burgeoning source of power and speed that could make a bigger dent for fantasy lineups as the summer.
