Cubs | Three hits for Javier Baez

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 00:13:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Javier Baez came up with three hits Monday, July 25, in a 5-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Baez is at .285-9-33 with eight stolen bases, and he joins the litany of Cubs that are worth their weight in gold in daily and regular formats. He plays often enough to merit consideration in both.

Cubs | Willson Contreras, Javier Baez starting

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:15:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs C/OF Willson Contreras is starting in left field and batting fifth, and INF Javier Baez is starting at second base and batting ninth against Chicago White Sox SP Miguel Gonzalez Monday, July 25.

Fantasy Tip: With an option to utilize a designated hitter Monday, Chicago can plug both youngsters into the lineup. Contreras is a capable starting catcher in all formats given his .277/.372/.482 slash line, and Baez is a rising fantasy talent. The fielding wizard has also held his own at the dish with 29 runs, nine home runs, 33 RBI, eight stolen bases and a .285/.327/.452 slash line over 254 plate appearances.

Yankees | Four players in proposed Chapman deal

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 07:41:10 -0700

Updating previous reports, Chicago Cubs SS Gleyber Torres, RP Adam Warren and two others are in the proposed deal for New York Yankees RP Aroldis Chapman. OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are not among them.

Fantasy Tip: If Chapman lands with the Cubs, it's hard to see him setting up for Hector Rondon, who would lose a lot of fantasy luster. Chapman's numbers are stellar as usual, and he's an elite RP in fantasy regardless. The Yankees are expected to wait four or five days to decide whether to move RP Andrew Miller. If Miller stays, he could be in line to return to the closer role. If he is also dealt, Dellin Betances isn't a bad fallback option. Both remain must-owns in any scenario, but Miller could be in line for a big fantasy uptick if he isn't dealt.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella leading off vs. Brewers

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 08:10:00 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Tommy La Stella is starting at second base and leading off against Milwaukee Brewers SP Junior Guerra Sunday, July 24. INF Javier Baez is not in the starting lineup Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella is nothing more than a cavernous mixed and NL-only option, but he's packed punch when given an opportunity with a .273/.363/.434 slash line. He's a nice target in daily contests Sunday, albeit probably a popular one. Baez is worth owning in all seasonal leagues, and he is receiving enough playing time to provide five-category production as a low-end starter.
