Cubs | Miguel Montero out of the lineup

Mon, 25 May 2015 08:20:02 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Monday, May 25. C David Ross will take his place in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should return to the lineup in the near future. Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only hitting .182 this season and has not recorded an RBI since April 24, so owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid using him.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting vs. Mets

Mon, 11 May 2015 12:28:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against the New York Mets Monday, May 11. C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has been Jon Lester's personal catcher so far this season, so make sure to remove Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) from you fantasy lineups Monday. Ross offers little more than cap relief for FantasyScore players, as the 38-year-old veteran has a career .233/.319/.429 slash line. Montero, on the other hand, is heating up at the dish with six runs, two home runs, seven RBI and a .424/.525/.667 slash line over his past 40 plate appearances. He is a solid second-tier catcher for daily contests.

Cubs | Miguel Montero hitting cleanup Thursday

Thu, 07 May 2015 09:45:16 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is hitting cleanup against St. Louis Cardinals SP John Lackey Thursday, May 7, and OF Jorge Soler has been dropped to fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is only in the cleanup spot today while Dexter Fowler is being rested, which pushed everyone up a few spots. He'll have extra chances to drive in runs, though, especially with Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant, two players that get on base often, in front of him. Montero is a nice value play at catcher on a day when many regulars are being rested.

Cubs | Miguel Montero, Addison Russell hot

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:05:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is hitting .478 (11-for-23) with six RBI during a six-game hitting streak, and 2B Addison Russell is hitting .320 (8-for-25) with four extra-base hits and six RBI during his seven-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) and Russell ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) are both hot and worth running with at FantasyScore. However, Montero isn't in the starting lineup Tuesday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 12:55:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the batting order Tuesday, April 21, against the Pittsburgh Pirates. C Welington Castillo is hitting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) looks like he is getting a standard night off. Castillo ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) may not be a bad option for starters looking to go cheap on the catcher spot, but catchers like Texas Rangers starter Carlos Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) may be a better bet.

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 12:04:42 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is still looking for his first hit of the season after going 0-for-8 through his first three games. However, he is playing at Coors Field this afternoon, a ballpark that is notorious for being hitter-friendly.
