Cubs' John Lackey: Quality start in Sunday's extra-inning loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lackey (3-1) came away with a no-decision Sunday, allowing three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks over eight innings while striking out two in an extra-inning loss to the Braves.

He was on the hook for the loss before Addison Russell's game-tying single in the ninth, but Hector Rondon then promptly handed the game back to the Braves in the top of the 10th. Lackey's 4.32 ERA on the season isn't great, but his 1.11 WHIP and 29:9 K:BB in 33.3 innings and five starts better reflect his performance so far. He'll look to get back in the win column Friday at home against Max Scherzer and the Nats.

Cubs' John Lackey: Start pushed to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lackey will start Sunday against the Pirates after his scheduled start Saturday was rained out, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

The Cubs will push Lackey back a day, as expected, while taking the off day as an opportunity to push Kyle Hendricks back a series and pitch Jason Hammel, Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester against the division-rival Pirates next week. Lackey will face Julio Teheran in Sunday's game and remains a strong play in all formats.

Cubs' John Lackey: Pounded for six earned runs in Saturday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lackey (3-1) was lit up for seven hits, six earned runs, and a walk over 5.2 innings in Saturday's 13-5 loss to the Reds. He struck out five.

After mustering a perfect record through his first trio of starts in 2016, Lackey simply didn't have it Saturday. His six earned runs actually matched the total he'd given up in the opener against the Diamondbacks, with the difference being that this time it was the opposing offense who scored in the teens, in contrast to his teammates putting up 14 runs on that date. Lackey gave up his first long ball since that appearance among 12 flyballs during his time on the mound. While his 3-1 record certainly appears respectable, his 4.97 ERA is indicative of the trouble he's run into in a pair of starts to date.

Cubs' John Lackey: Dominates Cardinals in third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

John Lackey (3-0) dominated in a win Monday over the Cardinals, as he struck out 11, walked just one and allowed four hits over seven shutout innings.

The Cardinals had no answer for Lackey, who drew a ridiculous 23 swinging strikes on just 91 pitches (25.2 percent). He was able to stay efficient by throwing 19 first pitch strikes to 26 batters and had strong enough command to limit the Cardinals to just one extra-base hits, an Aledmys Diaz double. Lackey's ERA is down to 3.66 after his best start of the season thus far.

Cubs' John Lackey: Two starts, two wins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

John Lackey (2-0) struck out seven over 6.2 innings Wednesday against the Reds, allowing two runs on six hits and three walks in a 9-2 win.

After struggling to the tune of six runs and winning anyway in his season debut last week in Arizona, Lackey settled things down against an easier opponent. Although last season's 2.77 ERA was almost certainly an outlier, Lackey does appear to be in for a solid season in his first campaign with the Chicago Cubs -- after all, they've got the offense to bail him out on his worse days.
