Position Breakdown
SS - 66
News
Russell is back in the lineup, starting at shortstop and batting sixth against Miami on Thursday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Russell did not start Wednesday' game but entered in late and managed to produce a double and a run over two at-bats. The 22-year-old is beginning to string together some nice hitting performances lately as he's recorded hits in seven of his last 11 games, slashing .303/.425/.576 over that time.

News
Montero (knee) is expected to return to action Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Montero sat out the last two games due to his sore knee, but it appears that will be the extent of his absence. With Montero due back behind the plate Saturday, fellow catcher Willson Contreras is expected to start at another position

Gerardo Concepcion, #50
Year-to-date Stats

News
Concepcion retired all four batters he faced - including two by strikeout - in his major league debut Tuesday.

Concepcion was terrible last year in the minors, but he was dominant for Double-A Tennessee this year before he was promoted to Triple-A Iowa for a decent 12-game stint. His strikeout rate has always been good, but his walk rate - even this year (14 walks in 35 minor league innings) could use some improvement.

News
La Stella (hamstring) could start his rehab assignment Monday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

La Stella was placed on the 15-day DL on June 9 after suffering a hamstring strain. He had been playing well for the Cubs this season before going down, hitting .291 with two home runs and seven RBI in 79 at-bats. If La Stella can avoid any setbacks, he could return around the beginning of July.

Richard was placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a blister, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

Richard has pitched 12.1 innings as a reliever for the Cubs this season, and posted a 7.30 ERA and 2.19 WHIP. He is used mostly for organizational depth in the Cubs bullpen.

Jake Arrieta, #49
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK

News
Arrieta (11-2) suffered his second loss of the month Wednesday against the Cardinals. He pitched five innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits while walking four and striking out six.

Arrieta struggled to command his fastball against the division rival, and matched his season high with four walks. He walked four-plus batters just once last year, but Arrieta has now issued four free passes in five of his starts this season. The 2015 NL Cy Young winner draws a favorable matchup Monday when he takes on the Reds in his next start.

Jason Hammel, #39
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
7381.12.552567
 
News
Hammel (7-4) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing four runs, six hits and a walk while striking out three in Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals.

Entering the game, Hammel was 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA over 13.1 innings against the Cardinals in 2016, but the division rival finally got to him Tuesday. The veteran right-hander was done in by a pair of third-inning home runs -- courtesy of Matt Carpenter and Matt Holliday -- that accounted for three runs in three batters. Hammel continues to give owners a headache with his inconsistency, but still owns an impressive 2.55 ERA through 14 starts.

News
Soler (hamstring) is now taking batting practice, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

It sounds like Soler, now more than two weeks removed from suffering a left hamstring strain, is inching closer to a minor league rehab assignment although the team has not provided any sort of timetable for him to join an affiliate. Soler raised his OPS nearly 150 points in his final 15 games before hitting the DL with five multi-hit games and three home runs over that span.

News
Ross is starting behind the dish and batting eighth Thursday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Ross will man catching duties with Jon Lester on the mound for the Cubs on Thursday. This follows anager Joe Maddon's gameplay as he indicated last week that Ross would catch for Lester, Miguel Montero would catch for Jake Arrieta, and Willson Contrerras would catch for the other three starters. Following this scheme, Ross is due to play only once or twice a week the rest of the season, which greatly diminishes his fantasy value.

News
Coghlan returns to the lineup, playing left field and batting fifth Friday against Miami.

Coghlan returns to the starting lineup following Thursday's game where he made just a pinch hit appearance. The 31-year old has provided versatility in the Cubs outfield since his acquisition on June 9 but his role is likely to diminish once everyday guys, Jorge Soler and Dexter Fowler, return from the DL. Until then however, Coghlan has a chance to prove he should stick around in the lineup.

News
Strop pitched a perfect eighth inning against the Cardinals on Tuesday, striking out two batters in what ended up being a 4-3 loss.

Strop has been racking up the strikeouts the past few weeks, striking out at least one batter in each of his past nine appearances. Despite the loss Tuesday, Strop and the Cubs have had plenty of late-inning leads to defend. They hold the best record in baseball at 47-22 while outscoring their opponents 369-200.

News
Nathan (elbow) will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A Tennessee, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Nathan signed a major league deal with the Cubs in mid-May, as has been recovering from Tommy John surgery that forced him to miss all of last season. The 41-year-old could be a huge boost to the club's bullpen if he can work his way back from the injury, and could join Chicago around the All-Star break if he is effective and everything goes according to plan.

Jon Lester, #34
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK
9398.22.102399
 
News
Lester tossed seven strong innings Thursday against Miami, giving up just two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out seven in a no-decision.

Unfortunately, Wei-Yin Chen matched him inning for inning on the other side, then reliever Pedro Strop coughed up the winning runs. All the Marlins could get off Lester was a pair of solo homers -- a bit of a surprise in their pitcher-friendly park against a guy who doesn't give up many long balls. With six consecutive quality starts and an ERA hovering just over 2.00, Lester remains one of the finest fantasy starters around, though he's still likely going to see a bit of regression thanks to his fortunate .264 BABIP and 87.4 percent strand rate.

News
X-rays taken on Zobrist's ankle revealed only a bruise, but he is not expected to play Saturday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Zobrist was forced from Friday's game after being struck by a pitch on the back on the foot, but he does not appear to be dealing with any sort of serious setback, even if he may miss Saturday's game. The Cubs' lineup for Saturday's contest will ultimately determine whether or not Zobrist will miss any time with the ankle injury.

Manager Joe Maddon said it's "possible" Rizzo (back) could play Saturday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Of course, everything will depend on how Rizzo feels Saturday morning, but skipper's words seem to indicate that a prolonged absence is not expected. Rizzo dealt with a slight back issue earlier this month but said his current issue is different. Kris Bryant will start at first base Friday in Rizzo's absence, just his third career start at the position.

Patton was recalled Tuesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Patton made a brief appearance in the majors in early May but was sent back down to Triple-A after a three day stint. During his time with Triple-A Iowa following his demotion, the 28-year-old posted a 1.04 ERA and 1.04 WHIP and struck out 42 batters in 26 innings. He'll provide depth in the Cubs' bullpen during his most recent stay in the bigs.

Contreras has generated plenty of excitement since his call up on June 17, smashing two homers and driving in five runs in only nine at-bats. He'll bring a four game hit streak into Thursday's game as he faces off against Miami hurler, Wei-Yin Chen.

Almora is in the lineup Thursday against Miami, playing center field and batting seventh, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Almora began his major league career great, going 9-for-21 (.429) in his first nine games since his call up on June 7. He's hit a bump in the road since then, however, batting 1-for-14 (.071) with two strikeouts since then. He'll look to get back on track Thursday as he faces off against Wei-Yin Chen and the Marlins.
