Cubs | Dexter Fowler back from DL

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 14:00:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (hamstring) is being activated from the disabled list Friday, July 22, according to a source. Fowler has been out of the lineup since he was injured June 18. RP Spencer Patton and OF Albert Almora will be sent to Class AAA Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler may be a little rusty with some time off, so it's understandable if you're hesitant to throw him back into seasonal lineups immediately. But he's been a boon to fantasy owners with his .290/.398/.483 slash line and seven home runs, 41 runs, 28 RBI and six steals. Almora is a promising youngster who was the casualty of a stacked roster. He showed well, hitting .265 with two homers and nine RBI but has an uphill battle to climb for playing time moving forward. He should be kept in most dynasty leagues, however.

Cubs | Ben Zobrist, Miguel Montero out

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 10:40:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Ben Zobrist and C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels Sunday, July 17. SS Javier Baez will start at second base and is batting first. 3B Kris Bryant will start at third base, while C Willson Contreras will start at catcher. OF Matt Szczur will start in left field and is batting seventh. OF Albert Almora is starting in center field and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Szczur has at least one hit in each of his last three games and can be a sleeper option for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Almora is hitting only .217 this month and probably can be avoided by most fantasy owners.
