Cubs | Addison Russell sitting out

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 07:45:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is out of the lineup Tuesday, July 7, in Game 1 of a doubleheader in favor of 2B Jonathan Herrera.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't in there for his offense and isn't a good FantasyScore option.

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is out of the lineup Friday, July 3, in favor of SS Jonathan Herrera.

Cubs | Big day for Jonathan Herrera

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 18:11:12 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Jonathan Herrera went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored and a walk in a 6-1 win over the New York Mets Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) was filling in for Kris Bryant ($5,700, 11.4% of cap), and he responded with his best game of the season. However, Herrera is hitting just .229, and on the rare occasions he does spell Bryant, he typically won't provide much value at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kris Bryant out Thursday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 07:32:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is out of the lineup Thursday, July 2, against New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom. 3B Jonathan Herrera is in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) isn't much of an option on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Addison Russell sitting vs. Mets

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 13:51:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and batting ninth against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore players. Russell ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has a .231/.310/.354 slash line over his past 38 games, and he is best replaced in the majority of seasonal formats at this point. There is plenty of upside for Russell, and he doesn't look lost at the highest level, especially in the field. Still, until he strings together a solid run at the plate, he is a low-end fantasy option.

Cubs | Addison Russell out of the lineup

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 10:20:57 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. SS Jonathan Herrera will be the starting second baseman and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has played in each of the last 11 games, so he is probably receiving a day off. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is coming off a two-hit performance in his last start but is hitting only .231 this season and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Starlin Castro will not start

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 07:25:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro is not in the starting lineup Saturday, June 6. 2B Addison Russell will be the starting shortstop for the game and is batting ninth, while SS Jonathan Herrera will start at second base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Castro ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup in the next day or two. Russell ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has only three hits in his last six games but could still be an attractive option on FantasyScore. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .204 this season and probably should not be a starting option.

Cubs | Kris Bryant playing LF

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:17:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Tuesday, June 2. SS Jonathan Herrera receives the start at third base and is hitting ninth. OF Chris Coghlan is out of the lineup against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) is a very strong FantasyScore option against the soft-tossing lefty Hand, even though the rookie is hitting .227 (5-for-22) with one home run against southpaws this year. Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) should be ignored.

Cubs | Jonathan Herrera playing Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:26:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, May 24, in place of 2B Addison Russell. He is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is receiving the day off and should be removed from all fantasy lineups. Herrera ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is not much more than a low-priced flier in FantasyScore.

Cubs | Addison Russell out of the lineup

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:10:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell is not in the starting lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, April 29. SS Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and batting ninth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. FantasyScore players should view Herrera ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) as nothing more than a low-priced flier with emerging-star Gerrit Cole on the hill for the Pirates. Russell is likely just receiving a routine day off which will provide him two consecutive rest days, as the Cubs don't play Thursday, April 30. While Russell has struck out 14 times in 29 plate appearances, he is beginning to show life at the dish. He has three runs, three doubles and five RBI over his last five games.
