Cubs | Top prospects unlikely to come up

Thu, 22 Aug 2013 14:19:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez and OF Albert Almora are unlikely to come up when rosters expand in September. Manager Dale Sveum doesn't see anyone being called up that isn't already on the 40-man roster. "The (Brian) Bogusevics and Sweeneys, and obviously (Donnie Murphy's) doing a heck of a job," Sveum said of the outlook for current roster players. "And yesterday's topic was getting (Anthony) Rizzo and (Starlin) Castro to where they go into the winter feeling a heck of a lot better than they did two days ago." OF Jorge Soler and 3B Mike Olt are both on the 40-man roster.

Fantasy Tip: Soler and Olt are your best options if you're speculating in NL-only leagues for the final month. They could contribute in deep mixed leagues, too, if they're given everyday playing time in the final month, but that's unlikely.
