The Chicago Cubs placed OF Justin Ruggiano (hamstring) on the disabled list after suffering a Grade 2 strain of his hamstring Wednesday, April 23. He'll be out at least three to four weeks. Ruggiano said he heard a "pop" when he was injured.
Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano had been in a platoon in right field with Nate Schierholtz. Schierholtz should now see more consistent playing time, with Ryan Kalish and Ryan Sweeney as options to spell him if needed. Schierholtz deserves a look in very deep mixed leagues.

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt and OF Junior Lake are receiving starts against a right-handed pitcher Thursday, April 10. Manager Rick Renteria explained the move because of the fact that Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole has similar splits against righties and lefties. "These are two young players who we're going to try to get them as much playing time as we can," Renteria said of Olt and Lake. "We're trying to find spots that can give them an opportunity to gain some confidence." OFs Ryan Sweeney and Nate Schierholtz are batting .174 and .118 respectively against righties this year.
