Cubs | Jorge Soler, David Ross sitting

Sun, 01 May 2016 10:52:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler and C David Ross are not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran Sunday, May 1. 3B Kris Bryant will start in left field, while 2B Tommy La Stella will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup. C Tim Federowicz will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella has gone 5-for-8 with four doubles, one home run and two RBI over the last seven days. He should be an attractive candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Federowicz is making his first start of the season and can be avoided by all owners.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 07:35:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross usually catches Jake Arrieta, so Montero could be back Friday. Ross isn't a potent enough bat to start against Taylor Jungmann.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. Milwaukee

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:18:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Montero sat out with a back injury Tuesday, April 26, and after Ross connected with Jake Arrieta for a no-hitter last week, it makes sense to be precautionary with Montero Wednesday. Ross should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests, especially with the wind projected to be howling in at Wrigley Field Wednesday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero scratched Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:39:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) was scratched from the lineup with a stiff back Tuesday, April 26. C David Ross will take over behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: This could just be a one-game absence or more, depending on how Montero recovers. Stay tuned. Ross doesn't have a very optimistic offensive profile and is mainly a source of salary cap relief in daily games.

Cubs | Miguel Montero has day off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:13:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross doesn't pack the kind of offensive punch he did earlier in his career, and he's not worth the start against Brandon Finnegan.

Cubs | David Ross catching Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:35:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs C David Ross is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Christian Bergman Saturday, April 16. C Miguel Montero is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ross is receiving a rare start behind the plate in a game not started by SP Jon Lester. Although he is not known for his offense, he has collected three hits in his first 10 at-bats and is worth considering as an inexpensive flier option in daily games.

Cubs | David Ross starting behind the dish

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 12:34:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs C David Ross is starting at catcher and batting eight against Cincinnati Reds SP Brandon Finnegan Monday, April 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ross is the personal catcher of Jon Lester, and Ross doesn't project to receive more than the occasional start behind the plate for the Cubs. From 2013 to 2015, Ross returned a .189/.272/.327 slash line, which doesn't move the fantasy needle enough to consider him in any fantasy format.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. southpaw

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 15:40:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 8. C David Ross is behind the plate and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross is a veteran backstop that offers more defensively than offensively these days. You could do much worse at catcher if you're looking to pinch pennies at the position in daily formats, but Ross is a low-end option.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber, Miguel Montero sitting

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 14:37:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs Cs Kyle Schwarber and Miguel Montero are both out of the lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim left-handed SP Andrew Heaney Tuesday, April 5. OF Matt Szczur is starting in left field and hitting eighth, while C David Ross is catching and batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Expect this to happen often against lefties this year, which will limit Schwarber's upside as a top-tier fantasy catcher. Szczur drove in three last night with a late-inning double, but both he and Ross aren't very attractive in any fantasy formats.

Cubs | David Ross likely to retire after 2016

Tue, 17 Nov 2015 12:30:37 -0800

Chicago Cubs C David Ross has said the 2016 season will likely be his last, as he wants to "be a dad" following 15 Major League Baseball seasons.

Fantasy Tip: Ross does not play often enough to merit consideration in regular fantasy leagues as he gets about 200 plate appearances a year, mainly serving as personal catcher to Jon Lester. Still, in daily contests, he may be worth a small amount of money so keep an eye on his status once the year starts.
