Cubs | CHC to explore trade talk for two players

Sun, 15 Nov 2015 14:14:56 -0800

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler and 2B Javier Baez are the subject of trade interest, and the team will explore offers, according to sources. 3B Kris Bryant, SS Addison Russell and OF Kyle Schwarber are also attracting attention but the club does not intend to move them.

Fantasy Tip: Soler and Baez would bring back pitching, which is what the Cubs sorely need more of at the moment. Soler will get attention in the middle rounds of most mixed drafts, and Baez figures to go a bit lower.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber owns a piece of history

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 13:12:46 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber is the only player in Major League history to hit five postseason home runs before turning 23 years old. He faces New York Mets SP Steven Matz in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday, Oct. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) boasts a .375/.444/1.000 slash line with the five home runs and seven RBI through eight playoff games. He finished the regular season with 16 home runs, 43 RBI and a .246/.355/.487 slash line through 273 plate appearances. He is an elite fantasy option in all fantasy formats, but facing a southpaw, he may not be worth his hefty cap hit at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Cubs | Jorge Soler moves up to No. 2

Wed, 21 Oct 2015 12:39:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is hitting second and starting in right field against New York Mets SP Steven Matz in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series Wednesday, Oct. 21. OF Kyle Schwarber has been dropped to sixth in the lineup against the lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is seeing the ball well and had a home run last night. He had just two of his 10 homers against lefties during the year, but the move up the lineup makes him a more intriguing pick on FantasyScore today. Schwarber ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) also went deep last night and has five bombs in the postseason, but he hit just .143/.213/.268 with two of his 16 homers off southpaws. This might be the day to fade Schwarber.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber not starting Game 2

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 11:43:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs C/OF Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia in Game 2 of the National League Division Series Saturday, Oct. 10. OF Jorge Soler will bat second and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) hit .308 with a home run and four RBIs in 39 at-bats against the Cards during the regular season but he only hit .240 versus lefties and has never faced Garcia in his career. He is making his first start in nearly two weeks and is a somewhat risky play in FantasyScore Saturday.

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 11:32:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jorge Lopez Sunday, Oct. 4. OF Chris Coghlan will play right field and bat second.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber catching

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 07:04:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber is in the lineup Thursday, Oct. 1, hitting seventh with C Miguel Montero sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) tailed off with a .206-4-7 September, and he's hitting just .148 against lefties. Lefty John Lamb opposes him today, and he's at a large FantasyScore price for his recent slump.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber out Monday

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:36:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 28. OF Chris Coghlan is starting in left field and is hitting second against Kansas City Royals SP Yordano Ventura.

Fantasy Tip: All 16 of Coghlan's ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) home runs this year have come against right-handers, so this is the time to use him on FantasyScore as a value pick in your outfield.

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 13:35:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs C/OF Kyle Schwarber will bat second and play left field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP A.J. Burnett Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) is not a great option in FantasyScore tonight. He's batting just .192 with four home runs and seven RBIs this month and is 3-for-17 (.176) over the past week.
