Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta will be recalled to start on Friday, Aug. 16. The team has moved P Carlos Villanueva back to the bullpen.
Fantasy Tip: Lefty Chris Rusin's performance reportedly played a role in the decision to move Villanueva, according to Cubs beat writer Mark D. Gonzales. Arrieta will probably get a chance to stick for the rest of the season and could be worth a pickup in NL-only leagues.

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta will make his debut with the team in the second game of a doubleheader against the Milwaukee Brewers Tuesday, July 30.
Fantasy Tip: How Arrieta fares Tuesday will probably go a long way in determining if he's given more starts in the rotation. The change of scenery could do Arrieta some good, but he'll have to earn a roster spot first. Only add him now in NL-only formats.

Chicago Cubs SP Guillermo Moscoso is an option to be recalled from Triple-A Iowa to start Sunday, July 7. Moscoso has a 4.63 ERA for Iowa this year. SP Jake Arrieta could be an option to enter the rotation at some point, too.
Fantasy Tip: Moscoso would likely just be a spot starter, thus not giving him any fantasy value. In NL-only leagues, a speculation add of Arrieta isn't a bad idea at all.

The Chicago Cubs placed OF Ryan Sweeney (rib) on the 60-day disabled list Tuesday, July 2, and recalled OF Dave Sappelt in a corresponding move. Also, SP Jake Arrieta was assigned to the minors.

Chicago Cubs SP Chris Rusin will make the start against Tuesday, July 2, after the team traded SP Scott Feldman to the Baltimore Orioles earlier in the day.
Fantasy Tip: Ignore Rusin in all leagues. Jake Arrieta, who was acquired from Baltimore in the Feldman swap, should interest those in NL-only leagues. There's a good chance the Cubbies give Arrieta a chance to crack the starting rotation in the second half.
