The Chicago Cubs could still look to add to their stable of starting pitchers, but they've made it clear they won't go for one of the big remaining free-agent pitchers on the market, including free-agent SP Matt Garza (Rangers). Ps Justin Grimm, Kyle Hendricks and Chris Rusin could be candidates to compete for a rotation spot if nobody else is added. The Cubs also will not re-sign Scott Baker. Free-agent SPs Paul Maholm (Braves) and Jason Hammel (Orioles) have been linked to Chicago.

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 Chris Rusin will enter the rotation to take the place of SP Matt Garza, who was traded to the Texas Rangers. Rusin has a chance to stick in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Rusin should only be a candidate for addition in NL-only leagues until he proves himself worthy of a full-time rotation spot in Chicago.

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.
