Dan Straily rocked in loss vs. Mets Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Dan Straily struggled in a loss Saturday, allowing seven runs (six earned) on four hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 7-3 defeat against the Mets.

Straily (1-3) was making his return to the majors after last pitching in May while still a member of the A's. He gave up three runs in the second inning before running into more trouble in the sixth, when the Mets stretched the lead to 7-1. Straily owns a 5.56 ERA and 38:18 K:BB ratio in 43 2/3 innings. He isn't scheduled for another start.

Dan Straily won't be in rotation long
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Dan Straily will go right back to the minors following his spot start Saturday, manager Rich Renteria told MLB.com Friday.

Straily will be promoted to start against the Mets, but will be sent back to Triple-A Iowa, where he has a 3.00 ERA since the Cubs acquired him from the A's.

Dan Straily coming up for Saturday start
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Dan Straily will be promoted for a start Saturday, according to the Chicago Tribune

Straily was acquired by the team in the Jeff Samardzija deal. He's posted a 4.06 ERA over 102 innings at Triple-A. All the Cubs starters will be pushed back a day in order to receive more rest. This is expected to be a spot-start for Straily, so the Cubs will keep the same rotation after Saturday's game.

Fantasy Analysis | 1404586689
Who is worth targeting among the Cubs' rotation hopefuls?
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

Clearly, the headliners from Saturday's trade between the Cubs and Athletics were Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and both immediately become must-owns in AL-only leagues. Their departure leaves the Cubs with two big holes to fill in their rotation, and there is no shortage of candidates to fill them.

Carlos Villanueva has replaced Samardzija for his Saturday start at the Nationals, but he is not necessarily among the candidates to fill a spot long-term. Even if he were, Villanueva has not had a sterling track record as a starter (career 4.94 ERA), so he can be passed over in virtually all Fantasy formats.

Then there is Dan Straily, who was acquired from the A's as part of the return for Samardzija and Hammel. He will report to Triple-A Iowa, but according to CSNChicago.com, he could be up with the big club soon. Because of his strikeout potential, Straily is worth stashing in NL-only leagues. He has a Jake Odorizzi-like skill set -- complete with shaky control and a high flyball rate -- but without a pitcher's park like Tropicana Field (or his former home of O.co Coliseum) to come home to, there may be little respite from home runs.

A better risk than Straily is Tsuyoshi Wada, who has already been announced as Tuesday's starter at the Reds. He has similar strikeout potential to Straily but with fewer control issues and slightly less pronounced flyball tendencies. He is worth pursuing in some deeper mixed leagues, as well as in NL-only formats.

Chris Rusin, just called up for bullpen duty, Dallas Beeler and Kyle Hendricks will also be in the mix, according to ESPN.com, but none has appeal outside of deeper NL-only leagues. With so much competition for two open spots, none of those three are really worth the trouble of expending FAAB dollars or a waiver priority.
