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.

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

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.

Cubs | Jason Russell wouldn't mind starting

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 23:52:07 -0700

If he is not dealt at the trading deadline, Chicago Cubs RP James Russell has indicated he would like to start for the Cubs. "If we were to get a bunch of free-agent pitchers that were starters and bring them here, I could see a reason why I would stay in the bullpen," he said. "If we don't do that, I don't see the harm in getting the chance. But it's really not up to me."

Cubs | Junior Lake getting a chance

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 12:24:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in center field Tuesday, July 29, against the Colorado Rockies. Lake will get extra playing time the next few days, according to manager Rick Renteria. Renteria noted the Cubs could face eight or nine left-handed pitchers in a row.

Fantasy Tip: Lake hasn't been significantly better against southpaws in 2014, but as a right-handed batter the split should favor him in the immediate future. Consider a short-term add in deep leagues.

Cubs | Tsuyoshi Wada earns first win

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 22:58:02 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Tsuyoshi Wada earned his first win of his career at the age of 33 against the Colorado Rockies Monday, July 28. He went seven innings and allowed just one run on five hits while walking just one. Wada will likely remain in the starting rotation for the rest of the season as an innings eater.
