Cubs | Kris Bryant hits first post-break HR

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:03:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant went 1-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, July 27. It was Bryant's 26th home run this season but first since July 5.

Fantasy Tip: It's not as if you were going to bench the MVP candidate, but it's still nice to see some pop from Bryant after 10 of his 12 hits since the All-Star break were singles heading into play on Wednesday.

Rangers | Sam Dyson easily converts 19th save

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 14:18:18 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Sam Dyson breezed through the heart of the Chicago Cubs' order on Sunday, July 17, striking out Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras in succession to pick up his 19th save in 21 chances.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to believe Shawn Tolleson kept the closer's job as long as he did; Dyson has been spectacular in the role since taken over in mid-May. The 28-year-old has held the opposition scoreless in 11 of his last 12 appearances, with his meltdown (four runs allowed in a third of an inning) against the New York Yankees on June 29 the lone exception. Short of Texas acquiring a player like Andrew Miller at the deadline, Dyson should be considered a top-10 fantasy closer the rest of the way.

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.

Cubs | Kris Bryant has improved vs. southpaws

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 12:28:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B/OF Kris Bryant has a .298/.398/.654 slash line with 10 home runs and 21 RBI through 123 plate appearances against left-handed pitchers this season. Last year, Bryant posted a .246/.345/.452 line with just six home runs and 25 RBI over 145 plate appearances against southpaws.

Fantasy Tip: There are all kinds of positives accompanying Bryant's progression this season, but his improvement against lefties likely carries as much weight as anything, especially since it aligns with the typical handedness advantage for right-handed hitters. Bryant is a high-end option in all fantasy setups and you should continue to start him confidently.
