The Chicago Cubs activated OF Ryan Sweeney (hamstring) from the disabled list Friday, June 13, and he's in the starting lineup and batting second against the Philadelphia Phillies. Sweeney is batting .200 in 20 games this season.
Fantasy Tip: Sweeney should return to at least semi-regular playing time in right field. The Cubs could use the depth in the outfield now that Emilio Bonifacio (rib cage) is on the DL. Sweeney is an option for AL-only managers looking for depth.

The Chicago Cubs placed OF Justin Ruggiano (hamstring) on the disabled list after suffering a Grade 2 strain of his hamstring Wednesday, April 23. He'll be out at least three to four weeks. Ruggiano said he heard a "pop" when he was injured.
Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano had been in a platoon in right field with Nate Schierholtz. Schierholtz should now see more consistent playing time, with Ryan Kalish and Ryan Sweeney as options to spell him if needed. Schierholtz deserves a look in very deep mixed leagues.
