Cubs | Miguel Montero out for Game 4

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 12:37:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the lineup for Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday, Oct. 21. C David Ross is behind the plate and is batting ninth against Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is a defensive specialist that has even less daily value when hitting behind the pitcher in the lineup. Look elsewhere for your backstop.

Cubs | Miguel Montero returns to lineup

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 10:55:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero will bat seventh against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia in Game 2 of the National League Division Series Saturday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) was out of the lineup for Game 1 because David Ross serves as the personal catcher for Jon Lester and is worth considering as a value play in FantasyScore today. Montero hit .248 with 15 home runs and 53 RBIs in 113 regular-season games this year and is 2-for-2 in his career against Garcia with a solo home run.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup for Game 1 of the division series against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, Oct. 9. C David Ross is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Cardinals SP John Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has become Jon Lester's personal catcher. He's a defensive-minded player that should be ignored on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber catching

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 07:04:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber is in the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, hitting seventh with C Miguel Montero sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) tailed off with a .206-4-7 September, and he's hitting just .148 against lefties. Lefty John Lamb opposes him today, and he's at a large FantasyScore price for his recent slump.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler, Miguel Montero resting

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 11:42:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler and C Miguel Montero are not in the lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. OF Austin Jackson is starting in center field and batting second, while C David Ross is catching and hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a defense-first player that isn't a smart buy on a day with a full slate of games. Jackson ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has hit only .195 (11-for-57) with no homers and two RBI in 24 games for the Cubbies, but he could be a sleeper pick that pays off against a hittable pitcher in a favorable lineup spot tonight.

Cubs | Miguel Montero catching Sunday

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 13:51:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero will bat seventh and start behind the plate against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .296 with one home run and eight RBIs this month and is 6-for-12 versus Burnett with a double and two RBIs in his career. He's worth using tonight in FantasyScore, given his modest price and lifetime success against the right-hander.

Cubs | Miguel Montero resting

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 08:07:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup with SP Jon Lester on the mound Friday, Sept. 25. C David Ross is catching and is batting seventh against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has been Lester's personal catcher all season long. He's a defensive specialist, though, and should be ignored on FantasyScore, especially while taking hacks against Pittsburgh's ace Friday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting out

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 07:42:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Saturday, Sept. 19. C David Ross will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) likely is receiving a rest after starting each of the last three games. Ross ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is known more as a defensive catcher and should not be a starting option in fantasy leagues.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out of nightcap

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 14:16:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup for Game 2 of a doubleheader against the Pittsburgh Pirates Tuesday, Sept. 15. C David Ross is starting and is batting eighth against Pirates SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is never really a good pick in daily formats as a deep sleeper at catcher, especially when he's facing a pitcher that has been very impressive in the second half of this season.

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 17:18:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero will bat sixth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Alec Asher in the second game of the doubleheader Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 5-for-18 with one home run and six RBIs during the month of September. He makes a decent mid-range catching option in FantasyScore.
