Chicago Cubs RP Pedro Strop picked up his first save of the season Saturday, May 23, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Fantasy Tip: Strop hasn't allowed a run in three and two-third innings over his last four appearances. Hector Rondon has blown two of his last three save opportunities, and NL-only owners should be adding Strop just in case the Cubs make a change in the ninth inning.

Chicago Cubs RP Neil Ramirez (triceps) expects to return to the team once his 15-day disabled list stint is over. He is expected to continue his rehab in Mesa, Ariz., at the Cubs' facility rather than travel with the team on their upcoming six-game road trip to Los Angeles and Denver.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has pitched well this season. He should be back before Pedro Strop gains any traction in leapfrogging him on the depth chart.

The Chicago Cubs placed RP Hector Rondon on the paternity list Friday, May 30, and activated RP Pedro Strop (groin) from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Rondon will miss a few days at minimum, so prepare for his absence. Considering Strop just returned, it remains to be seen if they'll trust him in a save situation right away with Rondon out. Your best bet for grabbing a cheap save over the next few days is with Neil Ramirez.

Chicago Cubs RP Pedro Strop (groin) is dealing with a right groin strain and could miss up to three to four weeks.
Fantasy Tip: Strop can be dropped in most mixed leagues at this point since he'll surely be out past the minimum 15 days on the DL, and he wasn't in the position to receive save chances anyway.
