  • Cubs' Hayden Wesneski: Set to start Tuesday's game

    Wesneski will start Tuesday's road game against the Angels.

    As manager David Ross suggested over the weekend would be the case, Wesneski will end up re-entering the rotation as a replacement for Justin Steele (forearm), who was recently moved to the 15-day injured list. When Steele exited just three innings into his most recent start last Wednesday against the Rays, Wesneski came on in long relief and struck out four while allowing one earned run on one hit and two walks. Before making the relief appearance, Wesneski had started in each of his eight prior outings on the season with the Cubs, logging a 5.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 28:9 K:BB across 39.1 frames.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Goes six innings in loss

    Hendricks (0-2) took the loss against San Diego on Monday, allowing four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out four batters over six innings.

    In Hendricks' third start of the campaign, he was able to go a season-high six innings, though he also yielded a season-high four earned runs. The veteran was efficient enough in throwing 54 of 84 pitches for a strike and issuing no free passes, but he also missed very few bats, notching just six swinging strikes. Hendricks has been so-so with a 4.70 ERA and 1.50 ERA through 15.1 innings thus far. His lack of strikeouts has long been a weight on his fantasy value, and that's not likely to change in his age-33 campaign.

  • Cubs' Codi Heuer: Set for another rehab outing

    Heuer (elbow) will pitch Tuesday at Triple-A Iowa, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Heuer is set for another rehab appearance as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery. It's unclear if this will be his last minor-league action prior to being activated from the 60-day injured list, though the next steps should become more clear after Tuesday's outing.

  • Cubs' Matt Mervis: Sitting against lefty

    Mervis is not in the starting lineup Monday versus the Padres.

    Mervis will remain on the bench for a second game in a row as the Cubs face left-hander Blake Snell on Monday. Righty bat Trey Mancini will start at first base and bat seventh in the series finale with San Diego.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting versus lefty Monday

    Tauchman is not in the starting lineup Monday versus the Padres, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Tauchman will remain on the bench for the second straight game Monday as the Cubs face left-hander Blake Snell and wrap up their series with San Diego. Christopher Morel will draw another start in center field and bat ninth against the Padres.

  • Cubs' Trey Mancini: Goes deep in win

    Mancini went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Padres.

    Mancini got the start with Matt Mervis hitting the bench against San Diego southpaw Ryan Weathers. The veteran responded with his fourth home run of the season, and while he should still see some time against lefties moving forward, his fantasy production may be sporadic while he in the short side of a platoon.

  • Cubs' Miguel Amaya: Hits first MLB home run

    Amaya went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Padres.

    Amaya's home run in the third inning against Drew Carlton was the first of his MLB career. The 24-year-old, who debuted with the Cubs earlier this year, was just recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Saturday to replace Justin Steele (forearm) on the roster. Veterans Yan Gomes and Tucker Barnhart are mainstays behind the plate, but Amaya could push the issue if he hits well and Chicago decides it wants to go younger at some point.

  • Cubs' Yan Gomes: Goes deep Sunday

    Gomes went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Padres.

    Gomes is now up to seven home runs to go with a .271 batting average and .752 OPS. The veteran backstop had eight home runs all of last season and batted .235 with a .625 OPS. That makes the early-season production a bit unexpected, but fantasy managers in deeper leagues can continue to plug in Gomes while he's hot.

  • Cubs' Marcus Stroman: Sharp again in win

    Stroman (6-4) allowed an unearned run on four hits across six innings to earn the win Sunday against the Padres. He walked three and struck out six.

    After a rough start against Minnesota on May 14, Stroman has been locked in over his last four outings, allowing just three earned runs across 29 innings. That's allowed the righty to lower his season ERA to a sparkling 2.39. Stroman had an ERA of 3.50 or lower each of the last three years, so while he might not be able to keep up this pace, he should remain a strong fantasy contributor the rest of the way. Stroman is tentatively set to start again Friday against the Giants on the road.

  • Cubs' Cody Bellinger: Likely out through road trip

    Bellinger (knee) said Sunday that he doesn't anticipate returning from the 10-day injured list during the Cubs' ongoing road trip, which concludes June 11 in San Francisco, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Though Bellinger believes his bruised left knee has responded well to the increased intensity of his running program in recent days, the outfielder described a return to the Cubs' active roster by the end of next weekend as "probably too aggressive." The 27-year-old was unsure if he would head out on a minor-league rehab assignment while the Cubs are on the road during the upcoming week, but he should at least continue to work out back in Chicago over the next several days. Mike Tauchman has been filling in as the Cubs' primary center fielder since Bellinger landed on the IL on May 19.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Gets Sunday off

    Tauchman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    After starting each of the last 12 games in center field while slashing .294/.444/.324 over that span, Tauchman will duck out of the lineup Sunday while Christopher Morel picks up a start in his stead. Cody Bellinger (knee) has begun a running progression and could be ready to return from the 10-day injured list by the end of the next week, so Tauchman's time as a regular in the Chicago outfield could soon come to an end.

  • Cubs' Matt Mervis: On bench versus southpaw

    Mervis is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    The 25-year-old will sit Sunday with lefty Ryan Weathers on the mound for San Diego, and it marks Mervis' fifth time on the bench in Chicago's last eight games. The first baseman is 0-for-16 with three walks and seven strikeouts dating back to May 24. Trey Mancini will receive the start at first base Sunday.

  • Cubs' Drew Smyly: Solid in third loss

    Smyly (5-3) took the loss Saturday versus the Padres, allowing three runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5.2 innings.

    Smyly was no match for opposing pitcher Yu Darvish, who allowed just three baserunners over seven innings. It was a rather pedestrian effort from Smyly, who came up an out short of a quality start. He's given up 10 runs over his last 15.1 innings with an 11:7 K:BB in that span. The veteran southpaw has a 3.56 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and 57 strikeouts over 65.2 innings through 12 starts this season. He'll look to get back on track with a road start versus the Angels next week.

  • Cubs' Hayden Wesneski: Likely to join rotation

    Cubs manager David Ross said Saturday that Wesneski will likely replace Justin Steele (forearm) in the rotation while Steele is on the 15-day injured list, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Ross believes Steele will miss only two turns through the rotation. Wesneski opened the season as a starter for the Cubs, but the right-hander struggled to a 5.03 ERA before being demoted to Triple-A Iowa in mid-May. Wesneski has shown the ability to miss bats, but he'll be a risky fantasy streamer while he's a member of the rotation, and he doesn't look as though he'll be in line for a long-term appointment.
