Thu, 11 Sep 2014 12:15:07 -0700

Cubs | Starlin Castro to miss time

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:07:31 -0700

The Chicago Cubs have placed SS Starlin Castro on the bereavement list. The team also recalled 2B Logan Watkins from Triple-A Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Castro could miss up to a week while on the bereavement list. The team could consider moving Javier Baez to shortstop and Arismendy Alcantara to second base with Justin Ruggiano and Matt Szczur seeing time in the outfield. Ruggiano and Szczur probably should only be options in NL-only leagues.

Cubs | Not likely to trade any SS

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 00:13:06 -0700

Although the Chicago Cubs have a backlog of shortstops, general manager Jed Hoyer has said he doesn't need to trade any of them. SS Starlin Castro, Javier Baez, Arismendy Alcantara and Addison Russell could all be on the team at the same time if Hoyer finds new positions for three of the players, which he admits may be an option.

Cubs | Javier Baez launches a pair

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 15:57:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Javier Baez hit two home runs and drove in four runs Thursday, Aug. 7, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Baez should be owned in all formats. He has the pop and upside to pace middle infielders in the power categories for the rest of the season. You might have to settle for a sub-par batting average and on-base percentage, though.
