Cubs | Miguel Montero expected to rehab

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:02:00 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) is expected to go on a rehab assignment, according to manager Joe Maddon Thursday, July 30, despite the fact that Montero doesn't want to do that.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) was hitting .230, with 10 home runs, 19 runs scored and 32 RBI before sustaining an injury. FantasyScore owners will need to see some positive results upon his eventual return before investing.

Cubs | Miguel Montero says he is ready to return

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:59:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) said his medical exam went well Thursday, July 30, and he is ready to play and will not require a rehab assignment. He will catch bullpens Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is extremely optimistic, but it doesn't mean the Cubs will rush him off the disabled list. There also are some potential playing time concerns for Montero, as Kyle Schwarber ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been tearing the cover off the ball whenever given an opportunity. This is a situation to monitor, but Montero's seasonal value is on the decline.

Cubs | Miguel Montero talks return

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 14:46:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) said he has caught a few bullpens, and he will be alright to return at some point. He did note, though, his thumb will not be 100%.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) isn't worth stashing in the majority of formats, as it is unknown how playing time will be divided when he returns. His timetable is still unknown, too. It is a situation to monitor, and Kyle Schwarber ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will likely receive the biggest fantasy value hit when Montero rejoins the team.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber to see time in outfield?

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 17:29:37 -0700

The Chicago Cubs may consider giving C Kyle Schwarber some playing time in the outfield once C Miguel Montero (thumb) returns from the disabled list, so that he can continue to receive at-bats at the major league level.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is off to a torrid start, batting .410 with three homers and 10 RBIs in his first 11 games. He should be owned in all fantasy formats. Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is expected to rest for approximately 10 days before being re-evaluated. If all goes well, he will be cleared to begin a minor league rehab assignment shortly thereafter.

Cubs | Miguel Montero to rest for 2 weeks

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 16:17:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) visited a hand specialist recently, and the Cubs were informed Tuesday, July 21, he needs two more weeks of rest before being re-evaluated. Montero will need a rehab assignment after he's cleared, and C Kyle Schwarber is expected to be with the Cubs for an extended stint.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has been effective since his re-call, going 4-for-11 since rejoining the Cubs. He hasn't shown much of his power yet, but Schwarber is worth an add in deeper mixed leagues.

Cubs | Miguel Montero could miss considerable time

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:25:22 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) could miss up to six weeks after jamming his left thumb last weekend. C Kyle Schwarber will be recalled from Class AAA Iowa Friday, July 17, and he could spend much of the rest of the season with the Cubs. Schwarber went 8-for-22 with a home run in six games in June as the designated hitter. He was hitting a combined .323/.430/.591 with 16 home runs and 49 RBI in 75 games on the farm, and he was named the Futures Game Most Valuable Player earlier this week.

Fantasy Tip: Montero's ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) extended absence makes Schwarber that much more valuable in any leagues where he's still available. He won't be the everyday catcher in Chicago, but he could also be used in left field, and his power potential is extremely enticing to daily players, as well.

Cubs | Miguel Montero heading to DL

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:09:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) will be placed on the disabled list heading into the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Only stash Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in shallow mixed leagues if you have the room. There's no guarantee he'll be starting regularly when he returns if Kyle Schwarber continues to impress in the majors. Schwarber, the team's top prospect, had a nice showing in six games earlier this year and should now be owned in all formats, since he could have an extended stay as the team's starting catcher.

Cubs | Miguel Montero has thumb injury

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 12:04:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) is dealing with a thumb injury entering the second half of the season.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly how serious Montero's ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) injury is, but it's serious enough that the Cubs will recall Kyle Schwarber from the minors tomorrow. Schwarber is the Cubs top prospect, and he showed his incredible power potential earlier this year as a designated hitter in interleague play. Schwarber should already be owned in all keeper and dynasty leagues, and he deserves a pickup in all other formats for his power stick, even if doesn't remain in the big leagues for very long again.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber could be recalled

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 19:51:14 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber could be recalled if C Miguel Montero (thumb) has to go on the disabled list, manager Joe Maddon said Sunday, July 12.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber has been crushing minor league pitching, and he went 8-for-22 in a brief stint with the Cubs earlier this year. If he is recalled, he should make a solid short-term source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero on the bench

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 08:19:56 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana Sunday, July 12. C Taylor Teagarden will start at catcher and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is dealing with an injury, so owners should check on his status after the All-Star break. Teagarden ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should not be a starting option on FantasyScore since he has gone only 1-for-8 since joining the team.
