Cubs | Chris Denorfia injured, headed back to DL

Tue, 05 May 2015 04:40:44 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia (hamstring) aggravated a left hamstring strain Monday, May 4, against the St. Louis Cardinals and left the game. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Denorfia would likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) spent the first few weeks of the season on the DL before coming off, so this is a setback for him and the Cubs. Remove Denorfia as an option in your leagues and keep an eye on Junior Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) for a source of low-cost outfield power.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia starting in right field

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:28:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting eighth against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Denforia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been limited to just 20 plate appearances this season, but he has handled the stick well when given the opportunity -- .368/.400/.421 slash line. He could be a sneaky source of cap relief Monday for FantasyScore players. Although, he is far from risk free.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out of lineup vs. Cards

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:21:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 4. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Soler in daily contests Monday. His 38 strikeouts pace the league, and while his yearly numbers aren't awful (11 runs, two home runs, nine RBI and a .269/.337/.409 slash line), Soler has looked a little miffed at the plate of late. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been limited primarily to pinch-hitting duty, but at his cap hit, he could return nice value. He isn't without risk, though.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:54:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. OF Chris Coghlan is on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will likely be in the outfield mix before too long as he was just activated from the 15-day disabled list. Coghlan is listed as No. 1 on the LF depth chart, but keep an eye on Denorfia moving forward. He has two hits in three at-bats and could move into a platoon with Coghlan against left-handed pitchers.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia able to take BP

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 22:37:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia (hamstring) was able to take batting practice Tuesday, March 31, but he has still not been cleared to play. "Opening day is still in jeopardy," manager Joe Maddon said. "You have to figure that out when you fill out the roster, too."

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia is expected to serve in a platoon role when healthy, and he could be a decent FantasyScore value at just $2,200 (or 4.4% of cap) when the matchup is right.
