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.

Chicago Cubs 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting at second base and hitting ninth in the batting order against San Diego Padres SP James Shields Friday, April 17.
Fantasy Tip: Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a weak-hitting utility infielder that should be ignored at FantasyScore, especially while hitting at the bottom of the lineup against an ace like Shields.

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Tuesday, April 14. 2B Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and hitting ninth in the batting order.
Fantasy Tip: Olt's injury doesn't seem to be too serious, and he was feeling better Tuesday, so he could be back in the starting lineup tomorrow. Herrera ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) isn't recommended for FantasyScore lineups, even against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.
