Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. Tribe

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 09:43:03 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 24. C David Ross is behind the plate and is batting eighth against Cleveland Indians SP Corey Kluber.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a defensive-minded catcher and should be left alone on FantasyScore this afternoon, especially against a dominant pitcher like Kluber.

Cubs | Miguel Montero surging

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 18:26:50 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI, a run scored and three walks in a 9-3 win over the Atlanta Braves Sunday, Aug. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has two homers, three doubles and seven RBI over his last four games. He appears to be heating up, and with Chicago's offense rolling as a whole, Montero could make a solid source of cap relief at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out vs. Tigers

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 15:24:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 19. C David Ross is starting behind the plate and batting seventh against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is the personal catcher for SP Jon Lester ($8,500, 17.0% of cap), so Montero ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) draws out of the lineup at least every fifth day to give way to Ross. View Ross as a potential source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday, but his upside is seriously limited. Montero is 5-for-23 since returning from the disables list, and he is a low-end seasonal option outside of cavernous mixed, NL-only and two-catcher formats.

Cubs | Miguel Montero sits out

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 13:56:21 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 15, with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is worth the play against Jose Quintana on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero resting Thursday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:37:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 13. C David Ross is behind the plate and is hitting seventh against Milwaukee Brewers SP Tyler Cravy.

Fantasy Tip: Ross ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is more of a defensive specialist and isn't known for his offensive prowess, so he's best left alone on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Miguel Montero a good pick tonight

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 12:37:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is 8-for-19 (.421) with a home run in his career against Milwaukee Brewers SP Matt Garza, who he faces Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has two hits in nine at-bats since returning from the DL, so most FantasyScore players probably won't be looking to put him in their lineups. He could be an under-the-radar sneaky sleeper selection as your catching option, though, given his success against Garza in the past.

Cubs | Miguel Montero catching Saturday

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 10:59:39 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero will bat seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Matt Cain Saturday, Aug. 8.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is making his first start since coming off the disabled list due to a thumb injury, so FantasyScore owners may want to avoid using him today. He is 11-for-54 (.204) with a double, two home runs and nine RBIs in his career against Cain.

Cubs | Miguel Montero activated from DL

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 09:57:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 7, and OF Matt Szczur was optioned to Class AAA Iowa in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) was hitting only .230 (50-for-217) but had 10 home runs and 32 RBI before his injury. With Kyle Schwarber not going anywhere, it remains to be seen how much Montero will play, but Schwarber can also be moved to left field. Chris Coghlan and Chris Denorfia could lose out the most.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber to stay in majors

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 16:56:32 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber will remain in the major leagues when C Miguel Montero (thumb) returns from the disabled list, which is expected to be this weekend, according to manager Joe Maddon.

Fantasy Tip: With Montero returning soon, it'll be tougher for Schwarber ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) to find everyday at-bats in the Chicago lineup. However, it's helpful that he can play in left field, too. In the right matchups when he's in the lineup, he'll continue to be an attractive value pick on FantasyScore with tons of power upside.

Cubs | Miguel Montero expected back soon

Mon, 03 Aug 2015 16:15:25 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list at some point during the team's series against the San Francisco Giants this weekend, according to manager Joe Maddon.

Fantasy Tip: Montero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has not played since July 12 because of the injury, and it is not known how he will be used when he returns. Owners on FantasyScore may want to wait a game or two before using him to see where he will be used in the lineup.
