Colorado Rockies 3B Nolan Arenado enjoyed his second multi-home run effort of the week on Sunday, April 17, connecting on a solo shot off Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester in the fourth inning before doing it again off RP Justin Grimm in the ninth.
Fantasy Tip: The homers proved to be the only runs scored by either club as Tyler Chatwood outdueled Lester in a pitchers' duel at Wrigley Field. Arenado's other power display came against the San Francisco Giants at Coors Field on Wednesday, when he finished with four hits and seven RBI. The 2015 All-Star leads the majors with 16 RBI and has easily lived up to his first-round fantasy draft status thus far.

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta is expected to be tendered a contract by the deadline Wednesday, Dec. 2. SP Travis Wood, RPs Pedro Strop, Hector Rondon, Justin Grimm, Ryan Cook and Rex Brothers and OF Chris Coghlan are also expected to be tendered. Arrieta will be a free agent after the 2017 season, and the Cubs are interested in a long-term deal.
Fantasy Tip: After Arrieta's Cy Young season in 2015, he'll surely be very expensive in fantasy baseball drafts next spring. He has now risen to the elite level of starting pitchers, and you'll have to spend an early round pick to secure him.

Chicago Cubs RP Justin Grimm pitched a scoreless seventh inning during the Cubs' 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers Saturday, Aug. 29. The outing extended his scoreless inning steak to 15.
Fantasy Tip: Grimm owns high-end ratios for the season, and he can help in the majority of seasonal formats. He is locked into a high-leverage role with the Cubs and also has two wins and three saves for the season. Don't overlook how beneficial a 1.17 ERA, a 0.97 WHIP and a 12.4 K/9 can be in boosting your rotation's numbers.

Chicago Cubs RP Justin Grimm recorded the final out against the New York Mets to pick up his first save of the season Wednesday, July 1.
Fantasy Tip: Although Chicago has been using a committee to close games, don't read too much into Grimm's performance Wednesday. The game went 11 innings, and it is unlikely Grimm will see many save chances under normal situations.
