Chicago Cubs OF Emilio Bonifacio went 2-for-4 Thursday, April 3, and he is 11-for-16 (.688) with four steals to start the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's getting to the point where he needs to be added in most leagues - at least for the short term. His second-base eligibility makes him an attractive add.

Cubs | Mike Olt brings the thunder

Thu, 13 Mar 2014 06:23:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt had three hits, including two homers, with three RBI Wednesday, March 12. The vision problems he was having last year have cleared up. He's hitting .333 this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Olt is a not-so-dark horse to earn frequent, if not full-time, at-bats at third base for the Cubbies. Luis Valbuena is the platoon majority option. Emilio Bonifacio may get time there versus southpaws. Super-prospect Kris Bryant may make his way there late in the season. But the formerly touted Texas Rangers tyke could deliver post-hype power for fantasy prospectors now that he can actually see pitches.

Cubs | Starlin Castro out a week

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 09:02:04 -0800

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (hamstring) will sit out seven to 10 days after injuring his hamstring Sunday, March 2, according to manager Rick Renteria. Renteria said the team is choosing to be cautious with Castro at this time. "It's not too bad like last year," Castro said. "It (hurts) just a little bit. It's early right now. I'll take a couple days and be back again." 2Bs Darwin Barney and Emilio Bonifacio will see some time at shortstop in Castro's absence, and SS Javier Baez is slated to start Monday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: Castro's price is already down because of his disappointing 2013 campaign. This news won't endear him to any more folks, even if it won't affect his availability for opening day. Take advantage of the value if you have faith in a rebound year for Castro.
