News
Cubs catcher Miguel Montero is out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's matchup with the Mets. Montero had started five of the last six games. The one game in that stretch he didn't start, he wound up playing five innings, so he was certainly due for a rest.

The Cubs are also going up against a left-handed pitcher in Jonathon Niese, and Montero is batting just .222 against southpaws this season.

David Ross will handle the catching duties and bat seventh on Tuesday.

News
For many players in baseball, what Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is experiencing lately would be considered a typical stretch. For Rizzo, it's a slump.

Rizzo has been mashing for so long that his 4-for-17 run over the last five games comes as a surprise. He is 1-for-13 aside from a three-hit effort Thursday and has not homered since June 21.

That might not seem like a drought, but it is for Rizzo considering he clobbered seven in May and six over the first three weeks of June.

His .413 on-base percentage is at its lowest point since the opener.
