Cubs | Kyle Hendricks to start Tuesday

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 18:17:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks will get the start Tuesday, July 22, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks was decent in his first start July 10, allowing four runs and five hits over six innings with seven strikeouts in a no-decision against Cincinnati. Hendricks might get a long look with the big club after they dealt two front-end starters to Oakland last month, but he is still nothing more than a stopgap NL-only fantasy option at this point.

Cubs | No plans to trade Starlin Castro

Fri, 18 Jul 2014 11:08:21 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro has drawn trade interest, but the team has no plans to trade him this month.

Fantasy Tip: If the Cubs do trade Castro, Javier Baez would probably get called up and play shortstop. The team could also move Baez to second base eventually and have Addison Russell play shortstop.

Cubs | Javier Baez starting at 2B

Thu, 17 Jul 2014 16:47:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez is starting at second base at Triple-A Iowa Thursday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: This is a big development because it means the Cubs may be close to promoting Baez, one of their top overall prospects, to the majors to play the keystone soon. Baez should be owned in all NL-only leagues and stashed in deep mixed leagues.

Cubs | Starlin Castro credits manager

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 15:53:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Starlin Castro credits manager Rick Renteria for setting the tone for his success this season. Castro said he talks with Renteria a lot, and Renteria trusts him to just play baseball.

Fantasy Tip: Castro struggled last season under former manager Dale Sveum. With Renteria at the helm, Castro appears more comfortable and his fantasy production is back to matching his skill set.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber promoted

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:27:20 -0700

Chicago Cubs C/OF Kyle Schwarber was promoted from Class A Kane County to Single-A Daytona Monday, July 14. This will be Schwarber's second promotion since the Cubs made him their first-round pick Thursday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber was largely considered the best power hitter in the 2014 MLB Draft. He has the stick to be in Chicago for a late-season audition in 2015.

Cubs | Albert Almora has big day

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 12:08:10 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Albert Almora hit for the cycle with Single-A Daytona Monday, July 14. Almora is the Cubs' No. 4 prospect, according to

Fantasy Tip: Just 20, Almora is at least two years away, but he is someone to get familiar with in deep keeper leagues.

Cubs | Travis Wood struggling over past month

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 20:06:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood has posted 20 walks over his past six starts (34 1/3 innings), and that's more free passes over the past 30 days than any other pitcher in the majors. He is 1-3 with a 4.98 ERA during the span with an opponent batting average of .277 and a 1.63 WHIP.

Fantasy Tip: Wood has struggled with command problems all season, walking 48 batters over 110 2/3 innings, but lately it has been worse. Right now he should only be used in deeper NL-only head-to-head formats and some deeper mixed rotisserie leagues for his strikeouts.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta untouchable lately

Mon, 14 Jul 2014 20:05:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta has posted a 3-0 record with a 1.78 ERA over his past five starts with a .140 opponent batting average, 0.71 WHIP and just one homer allowed with eight walks and 41 strikeouts over the past 35 1/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Arrieta has moved to ace status on the north side following the trade of Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland, and he has looked the part. He is a must-start in all fantasy formats while pitching this well, so don't be shy to start him even if he plays for a losing club.
