Cubs | Competition for No. 5 rotation spot still ongoing

Sun, 23 Mar 2014 12:34:38 -0700

Chicago Cubs Ps Carlos Villanueva, Chris Rusin and Tsuyoshi Wada are the leading candidates to fill the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation. "They're all still in the mix," manager Rick Renteria said. "They're all going out there and doing a nice job." Villanueva could have a slight edge because the team has four off days in the first three weeks and he could easily slide into the bullpen if needed, assuming the other starters remain on a five-day rotation.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta not expected to be ready

Thu, 13 Feb 2014 12:38:14 -0800

Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria said the team doesn't expect SP Jake Arrieta (shoulder) to be ready for the start of the season. RP Carlos Villanueva will be stretched out to bolster the starting pitching depth.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear how many starts Arrieta would have to miss in the season's first month. Regardless, Villanueva or James McDonald would likely take his spot. Neither is worth investing heavily in in NL-only leagues, obviously.

Cubs | Jake Arrieta in, Carlos Villanueva out

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 09:57:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta will be recalled to start on Friday, Aug. 16. The team has moved P Carlos Villanueva back to the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Lefty Chris Rusin's performance reportedly played a role in the decision to move Villanueva, according to Cubs beat writer Mark D. Gonzales. Arrieta will probably get a chance to stick for the rest of the season and could be worth a pickup in NL-only leagues.

Cubs | Matt Garza excels in rehab outing

Thu, 16 May 2013 21:54:46 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Matt Garza (lat) logged six shutout innings Thursday, May 16, in a rehab start for Triple-A Iowa. He allowed two hits and struck out six while not allowing a walk. He's on schedule to join the big-league club sometime next week. When Garza comes back, P Carlos Villanueva looks like the most realistic rotation casualty. Though manager Dale Sveum hasn't shut down the idea of a six-man rotation, it's unlikely to happen in the long term.

Fantasy Tip: He'll probably have around two months to work back into form so the Cubs can showcase him for a possible late-July trade. Villanueva can be dropped in mixed leagues when Garza re-establishes his rotation spot. Scott Feldman has pitched relatively well lately, and Villanueva's past bullpen experience is actually working against his fantasy value here.
