News
Montero went 3-for-5 -- all singles -- with three RBI and a run in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

He'd been out of the lineup three of the last four games, but was able to get back in there and produce. With the Cubs probably looking to get Willson Contreras some extra off days down the stretch, Montero could see a tad more playing time than usual, although the team might also rest him and use depth options at catcher.

News
Arrieta (18-7) mowed down 10 Cardinals over seven innings of five-hit scoreless ball in Friday's 5-0 victory. He also issued a walk.

The veteran completely mystified a Cardinals team that has been tough on righties all season, hurling 68 of 99 pitches for strikes and inducing 22 swinging strikes overall. Arrieta was able to notch double-digit strikeouts for the first time since June 17 while also posting his eighth scoreless effort of the season. The outing was an encouraging departure from the 16 runs (14 earned) that the right-hander had given up over his previous four starts. He'll look to head into the postseason with even more momentum when he takes on the Pirates next Wednesday in his final regular-season start.

News
Hammel (15-10) gave up six earned runs on six hits and a walk over 2.1 innings in Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Cardinals. He struck out two.

The veteran fell victim to a Cardinals team that's been dangerous against right-handers all season, with the majority of his problems coming in the first inning. Yadier Molina got the scoring started with a two-RBI double and the red-hot Randal Grichuk followed by plating Molina and Matt Adams with a single. Hammel also saw Stephen Piscotty take him deep with a solo shot in the second, while Grichuk came back to tag Mike Montgomery for a two-bagger in the third that drove in Jhonny Peralta, the final run that went also went on Hammel's ledger. The 34-year-old has endured an up-and-down September, giving up 20 earned runs over 20.2 innings and dropping three of four decisions in the process. He'll look to build some positive momentum for the postseason when he takes on the Reds next Friday.

Soler hasn't been in the lineup in more than a week, missing five straight games with discomfort in his side before serving as a pinch hitter in Friday's win over St. Louis. He'll return to the field Saturday, starting in left field and batting seventh in the order.

News
Fowler filled up the stat sheet in Tuesday's win against the Reds, going 2-for-3 with two walks, a stolen base, an RBI and two runs in the victory.

Although the outfielder is not running as rampant on the bases this year compared to previous campaigns, Fowler's stolen base on Tuesday gave him double-digit swipes for the eighth straight season. Despite being on pace for reductions in runs and hits compared to 2015, Fowler's .272/.386/.438 slash line is a nice improvement from last year's .250/.345/.411.

News
Strop (knee) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Friday.

As expected, Strop will return to the Cubs bullpen prior to Friday's afternoon tilt with the Cardinals. The right-hander is expected to pitch in five games prior to the start of the postseason, so he figures to get plenty of high-leverage work with the season winding down.

News
Hendricks' next start will be pushed back, and he will not pitch until Monday at the earliest, according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald.

Hendricks has continued to roll this month with a 1.80 ERA over three starts, and there is no indication he is dealing with an injury, so he is not seemingly being pushed back for performance or health reasons. Rather, with their playoff positioning all but secured, the Cubs are likely pushing Hendricks back to help set up their postseason rotation. Hendricks will not start during the Cubs' weekend series with the Cardinals, but if he takes the mound Monday, he would still be able to get in two starts before the regular season comes to a close.

Jon Lester, #34

News
Lester (18-4) tossed seven beautiful innings, allowing one run on six hits and no walks while striking out five Reds in Tuesday's victory.

Tuesday marked a career-high seventh straight start in which Lester allowed no more than one run. The Cubs' ace threw 63 of 97 pitches for strikes, including nine swing and misses, while lowering his ERA to 2.36, its best mark since late-June. Over four September starts (31 innings) Lester has displayed amazing control, issuing just three walks for a ridiculous 0.9 BB/9 during the month. The southpaw has now won his last nine decisions with his last loss coming on July 3. Lester will look to continue building his resume for the NL Cy Young when he takes on the Pirates in his next start Monday.

News
Zobrist went 3-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and two runs in a 9-2 win against the Reds on Wednesday.

Fantasy baseball can be an unpredictable game, but Zobrist has delivered an entirely predictable season -- he's right around his career norms in just about every category except OBP, where a spike in walk rate has him at .380, his best mark since his career year in 2009.

Rizzo went 3-for-5 with an RBI double, another two-bagger and a run in Friday's 5-0 victory over the Cardinals.

The slugging first baseman now has hits in seven straight, with four multi-hit efforts over that span. Rizzo has smacked three doubles and five homers overall in September as well, after notching only a pair of round-trippers in August. His 104 RBI are a new career high and he remains just a homer short of equaling the career-best 32 he posted in 2014.

News
Lackey (10-8) overcame a tough second inning to finish seven strong frames in Wednesday's win over the Reds, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts.

He came in looking to bounce back from a three-homer misstep against the Brewers, and the veteran righty did just that, giving up two or fewer runs for the fifth time in his last six starts. The Reds' second-inning rally accounted for the vast majority of what they were able to do against Lackey, as they got four men on base and scored both their runs in that frame. Over his other six innings, Lackey gave up just two hits, and his day was finished after a leisurely 87 pitches. Lackey may only make one more start before the regular season ends; he'll draw the Pirates on Tuesday, but could conceivably be skipped in preparation for the playoffs when his turn comes up on the season's last day.
