Cubs | Junior Lake batting seventh

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:41:35 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is batting seventh and playing right field against Cincinnati Reds SP Michael Lorenzen Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should be viewed as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday. For the season, he has a .236/.276/.364 slash line, but it isn't a daunting matchup against Lorenzen. At the cap hit, there is upside with Lake.

Cubs | Junior Lake out Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 11:52:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene. OF Mike Baxter is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a bad deep sleeper play when he's in the lineup, and he's hitting .433 (13-for-30) in limited at-bats due to injuries this year. However, a spot at the bottom of the order probably means you should avoid him. Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can also be avoided today.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting fifth

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:13:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and bat fifth in the lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Coghlan comes out of the lineup, while OF Junior Lake will drop down to the seventh spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has nine hits in 19 plate appearances against righties this season, as he goes up against RHP Anibal Sanchez. Just one of Denorfia's nine hits have been of the extra-base variety, but Denorfia is hitting high enough in the order to be considered a cheap flier.

Cubs | Junior Lake will not start

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 10:13:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. OF Chris Denorfia will be the starting right fielder and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will be playing his first game since being activated from the disabled list, so owners may want to avoid him for the time being.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out of the lineup

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:53:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 3. OF Junior Lake will take his place in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is still considered day-to-day because of his injury. Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is coming off a very good performance in his last start but has at least one hit in only three of his last eight games. Owners may want to look for other options to use on FantasyScore.

Cubs | Jorge Soler not playing Tuesday

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 13:05:18 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 2. OF Junior Lake is starting in right field and hitting cleanup against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has just seven hits in 31 at-bats (.226) this year, and even though he has no home runs, his power potential is intriguing for fantasy owners when he's playing. And against the soft-tossing lefty Hand, Lake could easily become a very profitable sleeper pick while hitting in the middle of the Cubbies order.

Cubs | Junior Lake starting Friday

Fri, 29 May 2015 09:38:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is starting in left field and hitting seventh in the batting order against Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez Friday, May 29. OF Chris Coghlan will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has some nice pop at the bottom of Chicago's lineup, but he's hit just .228 (93-for-408) in his short major league career against right-handers, and Volquez has been pretty solid with his new team this year. Lake is nothing more than a risky dice roll on FantasyScore tonight.

Cubs | Jorge Soler sitting vs. Nationals

Wed, 27 May 2015 13:08:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup against the Washington Nationals Wednesday, May 27. OF Junior Lake is batting sixth and playing right field.

Fantasy Tip: Soler ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been struggling to take off at the plate, and he is currently leading the National League in strikeouts (62). However, Soler still has a respectable .273 batting average and .333 on-base percentage. Warmer weather could help heat up his bat, so seasonal owners will want to remain patient. Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Wednesday, especially facing Max Scherzer.

Cubs | Junior Lake starting vs. Diamondbacks

Fri, 22 May 2015 14:57:36 -0700

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.

Cubs | Junior Lake to join roster Tuesday

Mon, 18 May 2015 17:41:42 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is expected to join the team Tuesday, May 19, for the series opener against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Lake will serve as an option off the Cubs bench on most days, but he could draw the occasional start against left-handed pitchers. Lake has a career batting average of .286 against lefties in 174 plate appearances. Lake will be a nice, cheap FantasyScore option for those rare starts.
