Cubs | Recall Chris Valaika

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 15:16:01 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Chris Valaika was recalled from Triple-A Iowa Friday, August 1.

Fantasy Tip: Valaika is unlikely to get enough playing time to have fantasy relevance. He has displayed modest pop and good contact skills at the Triple-A level, though.

Cubs | Neil Ramirez expects to return when eligible

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:35:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Neil Ramirez (triceps) expects to return to the team once his 15-day disabled list stint is over. He is expected to continue his rehab in Mesa, Ariz., at the Cubs' facility rather than travel with the team on their upcoming six-game road trip to Los Angeles and Denver.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has pitched well this season. He should be back before Pedro Strop gains any traction in leapfrogging him on the depth chart.

Cubs | Hector Rondon improving his slider

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:41:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Hector Rondon's slider has improved and made his fastball more effective, according to manager Rick Renteria. Rondon has allowed two earned runs over eight innings in his last nine appearances. Renteria noted Rondon's slider was flatter and as fast as his fastball earlier in the season. "The last couple of days, all of us have noticed him using the slider a little more effectively and it's got more depth. He's been working on it," Renteria said. Renteria believes Rondon has the potential to be a consistent closer.

Fantasy Tip: After a horrid nine-game stretch in June, when Rondon allowed nine runs over 8 2/3 innings, his recent form is encouraging. Renteria's endorsement and commitment to Rondon makes him a most-own closer in the majority of formats.

Cubs | Javier Baez won't be recalled

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:13:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez will not be recalled to replace INF/OF Emilio Bonifacio right now, according to general manager Jed Hoyer.

Fantasy Tip: Baez could see MLB action before the end of the 2014 season. However, those stashing him have to be disappointed with the news. A promotion in September when rosters expand is still a strong possibility.

Cubs | Emilio Bonifacio available

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 14:52:56 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Emilio Bonifacio will be available to play Wednesday, July 30, but manager Rick Renteria is choosing to keep him out of the lineup until the trade deadline passes.

Fantasy Tip: This is similar to what the Boston Red Sox did today in choosing to skip Jon Lester's start amid trade rumors. Be prepared to be without Bonifacio for maybe another day.

Cubs | Emilio Bonifacio not in lineup

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 14:42:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Emilio Bonifacio is not in the team's starting lineup Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio has been heating up at the plate, which is why he's had trade rumors swirling about his head lately. Perhaps the reason he's out of the lineup is because he's been dealt. Stay tuned.

Cubs | Felix Doubront acquired

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 12:18:51 -0700

The Chicago Cubs have acquired SP Felix Doubront from the Boston Red Sox, according to a source. It is not known what the Red Sox will receive in return.

Fantasy Tip: Doubront could join the Cubs' starting rotation, which would give him some value in NL-only leagues. Doubront is probably not an option in any mixed leagues.

Cubs | Emilio Bonifacio hot

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:01:36 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Emilio Bonifacio was a triple shy of the cycle in the team's marathon 16-inning game Tuesday, July 29, and he has raised his average to .400 since his return from an oblique injury. The likelihood that Bonifacio is traded by the deadline Thursday, July 31, is increasing.

Fantasy Tip: Bonifacio jumped out to a torrid pace in the season's opening month, but he has since cooled off. Now that he's heating up again and could land with a team with a better lineup, he should at least be on your radar.
