Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Cubs | Roster moves

The Chicago Cubs claimed 3B Cody Ransom off waivers from the San Diego Padres Tuesday, April 16, and designated RP Hisanori Takahashi and INF/OF Brent Lillibridge for assignment to make room for RPs Kevin Gregg and Kameron Loe.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs bullpen is now basically down to three closing options after Takahashi was cut: Shawn Camp, James Russell and Carlos Marmol. Right now, Dale Sveum is using some sort of committee between Camp and Russell, but it's conceivable that Marmol could earn the job back if he performs well in less stressful situation. Grab Marmol if you're desperate and willing to live with what could be another roller coaster ride if he pitches in the ninth again.
