Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in left field and batting sixth against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Lake is a viable flier for cap relief in daily contests Friday, but he isn't without risk. He has just 15 plate appearances at the highest level this season, and he is only a career .244 hitter.
