Cubs | Hector Rondon hit with loss

Mon, 05 May 2014 09:29:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Hector Rondon was saddled with the loss after allowing a game-winning single in the ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, May 4, and manager Rick Renteria made it clear that he wanted to stick with Rondon in a tie ballgame. "In the end, with the strength of Hector, regardless of who he's facing, lefty or righty, it's a good match for him," Renteria said. RP Wesley Wright was warming in the bullpen to face Cardinals 3B Matt Carpenter, but Renteria chose to stick with Rondon. Wright appears to have passed RP James Russell as the high-leverage lefty in the bullpen. Rondon said he felt strong despite pitching in his fourth game in the last five days.

Fantasy Tip: The outing was disappointing for Rondon owners, but the silver lining here is the fact that Renteria trusts Rondon as his closer, even in a tied game and facing a left-handed hitter. It cements the notion that he's the unquestioned man for the ninth inning right now in Chicago.

Cubs | Jose Veras, Wesley Wright not available

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 14:25:48 -0700

Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria said both RPs Jose Veras and Wesley Wright were unavailable to pitch Thursday, April 3, because both relievers pitched in the team's 16-inning contest the night before.

Fantasy Tip: Veras blew the save against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday night and was pretty bad all spring, leading many to believe that the Cubs already preferred to use Pedro Strop in the ninth. That could be the case, eventually, or a committee approach could be used. Stay tuned. Strop is worth a stash in deep mixed leagues.

Cubs | Jose Veras' spring struggles continue

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 08:42:12 -0700

Chicago Cubs RP Jose Veras blew his first save chance of the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates Wednesday, April 2.

Fantasy Tip: Veras' skills are slightly above average for a reliever. He struggled all spring, and this isn't a good start to the year. If things continue to go south quickly, the Cubbies may go elsewhere. Other candidates to close include Pedro Strop and James Russell and Wesley Wright.
