Cubs | Miguel Montero back in two weeks

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 10:05:03 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is expected to return from the disabled list in two weeks, according to manager Joe Maddon. Montero is dealing with lower back tightness, and his DL stint is retroactive to April 25, so he can return as soon as May 10. Montero was hitting .208 with one home run and six RBI in 13 games.

Fantasy Tip: Montero is off to a slow start, so you may need to drop him in some mixed leagues in favor of better options. But he still carries value in those deeper mixed and two-catcher setups as Chicago's primary backstop in a potent offense. David Ross should see the majority of starts, but he's a low-end option with no offensive upside.

Cubs | Miguel Montero to DL

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:09:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, April 28, with C Tim Federowicz coming up to take his roster spot.

Fantasy Tip: David Ross will likely split catching duties with Federowicz, but neither have much fantasy appeal. Place Montero on your DL until he returns.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sitting

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 07:35:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is out of the lineup Thursday, April 28, with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross usually catches Jake Arrieta, so Montero could be back Friday. Ross isn't a potent enough bat to start against Taylor Jungmann.

Cubs | Miguel Montero available off the bench

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 15:08:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is available off the bench for the game against the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: Montero hasn't had a strong start with just seven runs, a home run, six RBI and a .208/.316/.333 slash line. He'll continue to give way to David Ross behind the plate a couple games a week, but Montero is currently a nice buy-low candidate in deep mixed, two-catcher and NL-only formats.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. Milwaukee

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:18:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 27. C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Montero sat out with a back injury Tuesday, April 26, and after Ross connected with Jake Arrieta for a no-hitter last week, it makes sense to be precautionary with Montero Wednesday. Ross should be viewed as nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests, especially with the wind projected to be howling in at Wrigley Field Wednesday.

Cubs | Miguel Montero scratched Tuesday

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 14:39:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (back) was scratched from the lineup with a stiff back Tuesday, April 26. C David Ross will take over behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: This could just be a one-game absence or more, depending on how Montero recovers. Stay tuned. Ross doesn't have a very optimistic offensive profile and is mainly a source of salary cap relief in daily games.

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 10:48:20 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is starting behind the plate and batting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Saturday, April 23.

Cubs | Miguel Montero has day off

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 11:13:54 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Thursday, April 21, with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross doesn't pack the kind of offensive punch he did earlier in his career, and he's not worth the start against Brandon Finnegan.

Cubs | David Ross catching Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 10:35:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs C David Ross is batting eighth against Colorado Rockies SP Christian Bergman Saturday, April 16. C Miguel Montero is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: Ross is receiving a rare start behind the plate in a game not started by SP Jon Lester. Although he is not known for his offense, he has collected three hits in his first 10 at-bats and is worth considering as an inexpensive flier option in daily games.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. southpaw

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 15:40:33 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, April 8. C David Ross is behind the plate and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross is a veteran backstop that offers more defensively than offensively these days. You could do much worse at catcher if you're looking to pinch pennies at the position in daily formats, but Ross is a low-end option.
