Cubs | Travis Wood helps himself

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 20:28:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood allowed five runs - two earned - and seven hits with one walk over five innings in a no-decision Friday, July 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals. He recovered after a rocky start, allowing three runs in the first inning.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that Wood settled down and allowed himself to stay in the game, because he homered in the fourth inning to help his own cause. He remains nothing more than a stopgap NL-only fantasy option in head-to-head. His 7-9 record, 5.06 ERA and 1.53 WHIP does little for rotisserie owners.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:47:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo hit a third-inning single Friday, July 25, to extend his hitting streak to 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners who locked up Rizzo in the middle rounds this spring are reaping the rewards of a monster season.

Cubs | Justin Ruggiano still hobbled

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:53:23 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Justin Ruggiano (groin) isn't ready to play the field because of a groin injury but is available for pinch-hitting duties.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano's hot hitting of late has been halted by this health issue. Deep-league owners will bide time until he comes back with another rental outfielder.

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 10:48:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Edwin Jackson (hand) does not have lingering issues after hand cramps forced him to leave his start Thursday, July 24.

Cubs | Javier Baez hitting well

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 06:14:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs 2B Javier Baez is hitting .333 with two homers and 10 RBIs in his last 10 games at Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: We could see Baez in the next few weeks with the uncertainty the team has at second base. Arismendy Alcantara is there now but could shift to the outfield to make room for Baez. Start stashing Baez in mixed leagues.

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 07:23:13 -0700

Cubs | Mike Olt optioned to Iowa

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 22:23:02 -0700

The Chicago Cubs optioned 3B Mike Olt to Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, July 22. He was hitless in four at-bats with three strikeouts against the San Diego Padres. This move makes room on the roster for SP Tsuyoshi Wada.

Cubs | Jorge Soler moved up to Iowa

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 21:14:04 -0700

The Chicago Cubs promoted OF Jorge Soler from Double-A Tennessee to Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Soler is one of the team's top prospects, and he is a must-have fantasy option in long-term keeper leagues. He could possibly see a call-up when rosters expand September 1, so he isn't a bad stash candidate in NL-only non-keeper leagues, either.
