Wed, 09 Jul 2014 20:46:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Dallas Beeler allowed just two hits and a run through the first four innings Wednesday, July 9, against the Cincinnati Reds, but he allowed three runs in the fifth to bring his night to a close.

Cubs | Arismendy Alcantara has inauspicious debut

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 20:46:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Arismendy Alcantara was hitless in four at-bats with a pair of strikeouts in his first major league game Wednesday, July 9, against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Alcantara is a good looking prospect who is getting a look with Darwin Barney on the paternity list, but now is not the time to add him. He is likely headed back for the minors by the weekend.

Cubs | Anthony Rizzo provides only spark

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 20:45:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo swatted a solo home run Wednesday, July 9, against the Cincinnati Reds, the team's only offense in a 4-1 setback.

Fantasy Tip: Rizzo is one of the finalists for the 2014 All-Star Final Vote in the National League, and this could give him a bump before the winner is announced Thursday. As far as fantasy value, Rizzo has 20 homers and continues to give his owners plenty of things to smile about, All-Star or not.

Cubs | Dallas Beeler recalled, Chris Rusin optioned

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 12:40:55 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Dallas Beller was offically recalled from Triple-A Iowa Wednesday, July 9, to start against the Cincinnati Reds, as expected. In a corresponding move, SP Chris Rusin was optioned to Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Beeler didn't allow an earned run in his last start and struck out six batters in six innings. He is auditioning for a permanent spot in the Cubs' rotation worth adding in NL-only leagues. Take a wait-and-see approach in mixed leagues.

Cubs | Arismendy Alcantara hitting second

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 12:22:04 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Arismendy Alcantara is hitting second Wednesday, July 2, against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Alcantara is an intriguing long-term prospect, but Darwin Barney will return after his paternity leave. Alcantara is worth monitoring if the Cubs continue to trade veterans; he could be with the team permanently. He boasts a nice power-speed combo to go with excellent contact skills.

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 09:18:21 -0700

The Chicago Cubs reportedly will hold their stockpile of shortstop prospects, for now. The New York Mets have nothing in the works, and the New York Yankees have also checked in with the Cubs as they look to find a replacement for SS Derek Jeter.

Cubs | James Russell subject of trade talks

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 23:39:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP James Russell was the subject of many trade talks over the weekend, thanks primarily to his 2.22 ERA and a strand rate of nearly 83 percent. Russell is pitching on a one-year, $1.775 million contract and is arbitration-eligible for 2015.

Cubs | Dan Straily starting at Triple-A Iowa

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 14:10:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Dan Straily will make his debut with the organization, pitching for Triple-A Iowa Monday, July 7.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs' rotation is in flux, and Straily could join the team soon, especially if he has a strong start tonight. He has NL-only value and could warrant a speculative add in deeper mixed formats, due to his high-strikeout potential.
