Cubs | David Ross activated

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 08:58:59 -0700

Chicago Cubs C David Ross (concussion) was activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list Friday, July 15, and RP Trevor Cahill (knee) was put on the 15-day DL in a corresponding move with right patellar tendinitis.

Fantasy Tip: The Cubs are carrying three catchers, so Ross won't see much playing time at all with Willson Contreras and Miguel Montero ahead of him. You can ignore Ross in all fantasy leagues for now.

Cubs | David Ross on 7-day DL

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 11:09:46 -0700

Chicago Cubs C David Ross (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, July 6.

Fantasy Tip: Concussions are tricky, so Ross could very well be out much longer than seven days. With the emergence of Willson Contreras, Ross has become Chicago's third catcher. Limited playing time and a .234-6-23 line make Ross very unattractive in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Cubs | Jeimer Candelario starting at hot corner

Sun, 03 Jul 2016 07:56:17 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Jeimer Candelario will bat sixth in his MLB debut against New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard Sunday, July 3. In addition, INF Javier Baez will bat seventh and play shortstop, while C David Ross starts behind the plate and bats eighth. SS Addison Russell and C Miguel Montero have the day off.

Fantasy Tip: The 22-year-old Candelario hit .333 in 25 games for Class AAA Iowa with 12 extra-base hits and is worth monitoring in keeper and dynasty formats, as well as deep seasonal leagues. Baez is 8-for-25 with two home runs and seven RBI over the past week and is an excellent option for daily fantasy games. Ross is receiving the start because SP Jon Lester is on the mound for Chicago but he is just 5-for-30 since June 1, and is not a recommended fantasy option.

Cubs | Addison Russell, Miguel Montero out

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 11:22:58 -0700

Chicago Cubs SS Addison Russell and C Miguel Montero are not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 28. 2B/OF Javier Baez is starting at the 6 and is hitting sixth, while C David Ross is behind the plate and batting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb.

Fantasy Tip: It's a normal day off for Russell, while Montero sits against the lefty pitcher. Baez has a nice power-speed combination and is hitting .278 with four home runs and 15 RBI this month. He's a fine player to add to all fantasy lineups tonight. Ross is a light-hitting catcher that makes for a low-end DFS pick.

Cubs | Willson Contreras set for more starts

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 15:21:29 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Willson Contreras will catch two or three games during each rotation turn, manager Joe Maddon said Monday, June 20. Maddon noted Cs David Ross and Miguel Montero are locked in with SPs Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta, respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Contreras is the best hitter of the three, and unless he flames out in the majors, he'll be receiving all three of those starts sooner than later. Contreras has major upside, and with semi-regular starts, he should be owned in all but the shallowest seasonal leagues.

Cubs | Willson Contreras starting vs. Cards

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 12:48:46 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Willson Contreras is batting fifth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Jaime Garcia Monday, June 20. Cs Miguel Montero and David Ross are not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Contrares projects to make the catching situation in Chicago pretty murky until he fully leapfrogs Montero. Ross projects to still see consistent playing time as the personal catcher of Jon Lester, but Montero could be the odd-man out. Contrares is an intriguing fantasy option after posting a .350/.439/.591 slash line over 239 plate appearances with Class AAA Iowa, but his unclear playing time limits his appeal to deep mixed leagues for now.

Cubs | Kris Bryant back in the lineup

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 14:39:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Kris Bryant (illness) returned to the lineup Saturday, June 18. C Miguel Montero is out with C David Ross hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Bryant is a daily consideration despite him sitting out yesterday with the stomach flu. Ross' bat isn't potent enough to use against Jonathon Niese.

Cubs | Willson Contreras to be third catcher

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 09:57:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs C Willson Contreras is being called up to gain experience and adjust to the MLB environment. He will serve as the third catcher for now and learn from Cs Miguel Montero and David Ross.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't sound like Contreras will receive enough playing time to be worthy of a roster spot unless you're in a deep NL-only or two-catcher league. Contreras is a top catching prospect for a reason, though, as he hit .350 with nine home runs and 43 RBI at Class AAA Iowa. If he impresses with the lumber in limited chances, he may force Joe Maddon's hand.

Cubs | Miguel Montero out against lefty

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 11:33:39 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals left-handed SP Gio Gonzalez Tuesday, June 14. C David Ross is doing the catching and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ross isn't having a terrible year with a .233/.333/.411 slash line with four home runs and 19 RBI as a backup catcher in his swan song. Still, he's offensively challenged and remains more of a low-end deep sleeper for daily formats.

Cubs | Miguel Montero on the bench

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 07:53:25 -0700

Chicago Cubs C Miguel Montero is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Edwin Escobar Saturday, June 4. C David Ross will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ross has recorded at least one hit in six of his last eight games and has five RBI during that span. Ross should have some value in daily fantasy leagues and could be a sleeper option because of his price.
