Chicago Cubs SP Dan Straily will make his debut with the organization, pitching for Triple-A Iowa Monday, July 7.
Fantasy Tip: The Cubs' rotation is in flux, and Straily could join the team soon, especially if he has a strong start tonight. He has NL-only value and could warrant a speculative add in deeper mixed formats, due to his high-strikeout potential.

The Chicago Cubs will send SP Dan Straily to Triple-A Iowa after acquiring him from the Oakland Athletics.
Fantasy Tip: Owners may want to hold off on adding him in their NL-only or deep mixed leagues because it is not known how long he will be in the minors. Owners could add him and stash him on the bench while they wait for him to join the Cubs

The Oakland Athletics have optioned SP Dan Straily to Class AAA Sacramento and placed RP Ryan Cook (forearm) on the 15-day disabled list. Oakland also called up RPs Fernando Rodriguez and Joe Savery.
Fantasy Tip: They'll have Straily work on a few things; he's worth holding in some deep games because of his talent, but he could be more hurtful dead weight in mixed leagues. Expect Drew Pomeranz to take over his spot in the rotation; he's a pickup everywhere outside of extremely shallow formats; he's shown signs of reviving his prospect hype and finally resides in an organization that'll help him succeed.

Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez is on track to slot into the rotation behind SPs Scott Kazmir and Dan Straily, and his anticipated regular season debut would be April 2. "I like it, it's fun. It just gives me more confidence that they have confidence I can do it. I'm going to try to ride that wave of confidence," Sanchez said Tuesday, March 18.
Fantasy Tip: Chavez will be worth a look in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues, but those in mixed formats won't want to bother with him.
