Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs SP Dan Straily was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to start against the New York Mets Saturday, Aug. 16, because the team is in a stretch where they play 20 games in 20 days. As a result, manager Rick Renteria wanted to give the other members of the starting rotation an extra day of rest.
Fantasy Tip: Straily is a decent streaming option against the Mets and could remain in the rotation beyond Saturday's game with a solid outing.

Chicago Cubs SPs Dan Straily, Felix Doubront and Jacob Turner will get opportunities to pitch in September, according to general manager Jed Hoyer.
Fantasy Tip: The Cubs have a bevy of end-of-rotation starters they would like to audition. Fantasy owners will want to monitor how the Cubs approach their rotation in September. Keeper/dynasty owners should also take note. A nice option for 2015 may emerge.

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson did not receive a heart-warming endorsement from manager Rick Renteria Thursday, Aug. 14, when Renteria was asked if Jackson would remain in the starting rotation. The Cubs are recalling SP Dan Straily to pitch Saturday, Aug. 16, and recently-acquired SP Jacob Turner threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings in relief of Jackson Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: The Cubs have options, especially now that they recalled Straily. Jackson has the worst ERA of any pitcher qualified for the ERA title, making him unworthy of a roster spot in all formats. If Straily or Turner were to take Jackson's spot in the rotation, either would be worth a speculative add in NL-only formats and potentially in some deep mixed leagues.

Chicago Cubs SP Dan Straily will be recalled from Triple-A Iowa to start Saturday, Aug. 16, against the New York Mets.
Fantasy Tip: Straily hasn't allowed an earned run in his last three games with Iowa. He has already flashed his potential at the highest level, and the Mets aren't a daunting matchup. Consider streaming Straily Saturday, and he is in play in daily games, if priced right.
