Cubs | Tommy La Stella starting at third base

Wed, 18 May 2016 13:32:30 -0700

Chicago Cubs INF Tommy La Stella is starting at third base and batting sixth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Wednesday, May 18. OF Jorge Soler and INF Javier Baez are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs are providing La Stella, Baez and Soler with semi-regular at-bats through mixing and matching their lineups. All three are viable depth options in deep mixed leagues with Baez likely owning the most upside. For Wednesday, view La Stella as a low-priced target in daily contests. He has a .327/.403/.582 slash line with 10 runs and six RBI through 62 plate appearances.

Cubs | Javier Baez starting at third base

Mon, 09 May 2016 12:27:52 -0700

Chicago Cubs INF Javier Baez is starting at third base and batting sixth against San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas Monday, May 9. INF Tommy La Stella is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: After hitting a walk-off bomb Sunday, May 8, Baez is back in the lineup and stands to continue his solid start (.306/.333/.490 slash line through 51 plate appearances). Outside of shallow leagues, Baez should be owned, as he projects to receive four to five starts per week and owns huge upside. La Stella has a .362/.444/.660 line and stands to cut into Baez's playing time, and Jorge Soler is also in the mix, which makes Baez more valuable in daily transaction leagues.

Cubs | Tommy La Stella stays hot

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:59:31 -0700

Chicago Cubs INF Tommy La Stella went 2-for-4 with a triple, a home run and two RBI during the Cubs' 8-6 win over the Washington Nationals Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: La Stella has impressed whenever he has been given an opportunity this season and currently sits with 10 runs, two home runs and six RBI with a .356/.420/.667 slash line through 45 at-bats. His playing time could increase given his solid play. He is worth a speculative add in deep mixed leagues and should be owned in all NL-only formats.

Cubs | Jason Heyward remains out

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:47:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jason Heyward (wrist) remains out of the starting lineup Thursday, May 5. 3B Kris Bryant moves to right field, while 3B Tommy La Stella is at the hot corner and is batting second against Washington Nationals SP Joe Ross.

Fantasy Tip: Heyward's struggles and wrist injury are perplexing to his fantasy owners, and don't rule out the Cubs placing him on the DL to rest. Any more time that Heyward misses is beneficial to La Stella and Javier Baez, with Baez having the more fantasy upside because of his intriguing power-speed combination. La Stella has been productive, too (.297/.381/.514) and is a midrange DFS play against Ross.
