Chicago Cubs OF David DeJesus (shoulder) will miss at least a month after spraining his right shoulder last Friday. 3B Luis Valbuena has done well in the leadoff spot in DeJesus' absence.
Fantasy Tip: Nate Schierholtz has benefitted from DeJesus' injury, and he's 4-for-13 (.308) with a home run, double and two RBIs in four games while hitting third in the lineup. He's on a career-high 10-game hitting streak and should be considered in deep mixed leagues while he's hot.
