Chicago Cubs C Kyle Schwarber won't become the club's everyday starting catcher with C Miguel Montero (thumb) on the disabled list. Chicago is expected to use three catchers, including Cs David Ross and Taylor Teagarden. However, Schwarber is the only left-handed hitter in the trio.
Fantasy Tip: Schwarber clearly has the most upside, especially in the power department, of the Cubs' three catchers, and he can also find his way into the lineup by playing some left field. Even without a guaranteed everyday job, Schwarber is worth an addition in all leagues because of his power upside.

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.

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Friday, July 10. C Taylor Teagarden is starting and hitting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Teagarden ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 1-for-2 in his only game with the Cubs so far this year, and he's not typically known for his offense. Against a young and overpowering arm in Rodon, Teagarden should be ignored by daily gamers.

Chicago Cubs C Taylor Teagarden will start at catcher in the second game of the Cubs' double-header against the St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday, July 7.
Fantasy Tip: It will be Teagarden's ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) 2015 debut, so he shouldn't be rostered on FantasyScore until he can put up consistent numbers when he starts.

The New York Mets could decide to keep C Taylor Teagarden (hamstring) as their backup catcher after his rehab assignment is over because C Anthony Recker still has an option remaining. Teagarden would have to clear waivers and accept an assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas to remain in the organization if the Mets keep Recker.

The New York Mets recalled C Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas and placed C Taylor Teagarden (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.
Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud is worth adding in NL-only leagues and has plenty of power potential. He hit .436-6-16 in 15 games at Triple-A. He's worth watching in mixed leagues.
