Chicago Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he's not sure who his closer is right now. RP Pedro Strop won't be available Thursday, April 24, after throwing 31 pitches Wednesday, April 23.
Fantasy Tip: Not surprising -- no one has stepped up. Hector Rondon has been better than Strop, but Chicago seems to favor using him in setup spots. That could change soon, and he's a decent speculation. Maybe later in the season, Arodys Vizcaino and Kyuji Fujikawa (Tommy John surgery) could chime in, but it's looking like Jose Veras has a solid chance to work his way back into favor. Check if he's available.
