Chicago Cubs RP Matt Guerrier (elbow) is waiting for a second opinion on his right elbow, and it's believed he has a tear on his pronator teres muscle in his right elbow, which will require surgery. "They said the ligament looked good and everything else looked good for my age and the amount of games and innings," Guerrier said. "Typically, with someone who is not a pitcher, you could let it go. (The doctor) mentioned that for a pitcher, it's something you definitely want to get fixed, because it will bother you for a while." He's expected to need six to eight months of rehab time.

Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum said RPs Matt Guerrier and Pedro Strop won't be handed the eighth-inning setup role in front of RP Kevin Gregg. "I think (Blake) Parker pretty much put himself in that role right now," Sveum said. "It's pretty much going to be Parker and Gregg in those last two innings."
Fantasy Tip: Blake Parker is the main handcuff to Kevin Gregg in case the incumbent closer is traded at this month's deadline. If that happened, Guerrier or Strop would likely move into a setup role. Own Parker in deep mixed leagues if you're searching for saves. Guerrier and Strop can be ignored, for now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are sending RP Carlos Marmol to the minors in hopes that they can fix a delivery issue. A source said Marmol "agreed to work with them" and go to the minors as a condition of the trade with the Chicago Cubs. Marmol has more than six years of major league service time and thus has the right to decline an outright minor league assignment. He apparently will waive that right if he clears waivers this week. The Cubs have agreed to pay nearly $2 million of his remaining $4.8 million salary this year. The Cubs also took on all of the $2.375 million still owed to RP Matt Guerrier, who was acquired in the deal from the Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: The only place Marmol should be owned is in the deepest of NL-only formats. There is no guarantee he'll make it back to the big leagues, and even less of a chance that he'll pitch in meaningful innings out of the bullpen if he does.
