Chicago Cubs SP Scott Baker (elbow) will start against the Milwaukee Brewers Sunday, Sept. 8. It'll be his first game action in the big leagues since 2011 after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He went 1-3 with a 5.46 ERA in eight starts with Single-A Kane County and Daytona. Baker will be evaluated after his start Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: It's not a lock that Baker will stay in the rotation for the duration of the season; his performance on Sunday will likely determine if he gets another start. For this reason, he's only a candidate for a pickup in a deep NL-only league.
