Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:07:31 -0700

The Chicago Cubs have placed SS Starlin Castro on the bereavement list. The team also recalled 2B Logan Watkins from Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Castro could miss up to a week while on the bereavement list. The team could consider moving Javier Baez to shortstop and Arismendy Alcantara to second base with Justin Ruggiano and Matt Szczur seeing time in the outfield. Ruggiano and Szczur probably should only be options in NL-only leagues.

Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:51:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro (personal) might miss up to a week dealing with the death of a relative and three friends in a car crash in the Dominican Republic, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: If and when Castro misses time, Javier Baez is likely to benefit the most from starts at shortstop. Reserve Castro in all fantasy leagues during this difficult time for him.

Cubs | Mike Olt on DL at Iowa

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 20:51:27 -0700

The Chicago Cubs placed 3B Mike Olt (hamstring) on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Iowa due to a strained hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: You'd have to think Olt will be among the September call-ups, but right now he has to get healthy first.

Cubs | Will resume play Thursday

Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:24:13 -0700

The Chicago Cubs thought they won 2-0 Tuesday, Aug. 19, against the San Francisco Giants in a game called in the bottom of the fifth inning due to unplayable conditions. However, the Giants won their protest of how the situation was handled by the Cubs, and the game will be resumed Thursday, Aug. 21, in the bottom of the fifth inning with the Cubs leading 2-0.

Fantasy Tip: Tsuyoshi Wada was awarded with a complete game shutout, working five innings and allowing six hits, no walks and three strikeouts. However, with the resumption of the game, Wada's fantasy total likely will be changed by daily fantasy providers and in weekly formats since he is unlikely to come back Thursday. Wada still qualifies for the win if the Cubs do not lose the lead at any point before the game is completed, so that's good news for fantasy owners.

Cubs | Kris Bryant returns

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 10:34:03 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (foot) returned to the lineup for Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, Aug. 19. Bryant did not start the previous two games with a left foot contusion.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Bryant to debut in 2014. However, owners in keeper/dynasty formats should consider stashing Bryant for next season, especially if you're out of contention this year.
