Cubs | Platoon at keystone likely for Cubs

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 13:32:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2Bs Tommy La Stella and Arismendy Alcantara are expected to share playing time at second base.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has also played well at third base this spring and could receive looks there spelling Mike Olt ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) early this season. Alcantara ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a versatile defender who boasts a power-speed combo, and he is the only one worth a look in seasonal mixed leagues -- albeit just deep ones. In FantasyScore contests, the Cubs project to have a high-scoring offense, and their home park is favorable, so there could be nice value whenever La Stella, Olt and Alcantara are in the lineup.

Cubs | Mike Olt likely to win 3B job

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:35:23 -0800

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt is the front-runner to win the third base job over 3B Kris Bryant to start the season. However, Bryant hit .325/.438/.661 with 43 homers in the minors last year, and he'll likely be starting in Chicago by midseason or season if he keeps that up. Olt, though, saw marked improvement late last year and could re-establish himself as a lineup fixture this spring. 2B Arismendy Alcantara could also see time at the hot corner. The Cubbies have said they do not want to rush things with Bryant.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact that Bryant is likely to start 2015 in the minors again, he'll probably continue to be overvalued by fantasy baseball drafters. For that fact alone, Olt could be a nice sleeper target in NL-only leagues for his power stroke, but he'll need to make much more contact to last in the starting lineup and hold off Bryant.

Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:07:31 -0700

The Chicago Cubs have placed SS Starlin Castro on the bereavement list. The team also recalled 2B Logan Watkins from Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Castro could miss up to a week while on the bereavement list. The team could consider moving Javier Baez to shortstop and Arismendy Alcantara to second base with Justin Ruggiano and Matt Szczur seeing time in the outfield. Ruggiano and Szczur probably should only be options in NL-only leagues.
