News
Hammel (4-0) allowed two runs in five innings to defeat the Pirates on Monday. He allowed five hits and walked one while striking out three.

The start was actually Hammel's worst of the season, as he had allowed a total of two runs all season before Monday's start. The righty has had some trouble with walks this year, but by allowing just 21 hits in 29 innings he has kept his WHIP at a very strong 1.07. Hammel's next start will come Saturday against the Nationals.

News
Bryant (ankle) is back in the starting lineup Sunday against the Braves.

Bryant was originally scheduled to miss the entire weekend series against the Braves due to a sprained ankle, but will return to action a day earlier than expected and get the starting nod in left field. He hasn't seen game action since Thursday, but will tape it up and hope for the best in the afternoon contest. Per Bruce Levine of 670 The Score, Bryant was never really too concerned about the ailment, an attitude that was confirmed through several tests.

News
Soler is not in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates.

This will be the second day in a row that Soler sits out. This may be in part due to manager Joe Maddon trying to get Tommy La Stella and Javier Baez more time at third base and Kris Bryant more time in the outfield, but the fact that Soler's batting average is sitting below the Mendoza Line this far into the season may be a part of the decision as well. Kris Bryant will fill in for him in left field while Tommy La Stella takes over at third base Monday.

News
Ross is out of the lineup Sunday against the Braves.

Ross seems to have taken over as the Cubs' primary catcher with Miguel Montero (back) hitting the DL, but the veteran backstop will get the day off Sunday. Tim Federowicz, who was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, will make his first start of the season behind the plate, catching for John Lackey.

News
Fowler went 2-for-5 Sunday with a double, a run scored and his third stolen base of the season.

He continues to rake at the top of the Cubs' batting order, and Fowler is now hitting .350/.470/.613 and has already crossed the plate 20 times this season while adding three homers and 15 RBI. He's not going to keep up that pace, as his previous career high in OPS is just .863, but given the bats behind him he seems well-positioned for his second consecutive season with 100 or more runs scored.

News
Szczur will have an MRI on his right hamstring Tuesday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN reports.

Szczur left Monday's game against Pittsburgh in the fifth inning and was replaced by Javier Baez as Ben Zobrist moved to right field. With Jason Heyward (wrist) also out of the lineup, the Cubs may consider calling up Matt Murton for outfield depth.

News
Hendricks will have his next start pushed back to later next week after Saturday's start was rained out, affording the Cubs an unforeseen off day, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

He was scheduled to pitch in the Cubs' first series next week against the division rival Pirates, but the Cubs can now push him back to Thursday against the Nationals, while getting Jason Hammel, Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester taking the mound in the Pittsburgh series. There are not major fantasy ramifications from this move, but owners in leagues with daily moves should make note that Hendricks' next start date has changed.

Jon Lester, #34

News
Lester was excellent again Friday afternoon as he allowed just one run on seven hits, walking two and striking out 10 over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision against the Braves.

Lester tossed 71 of 106 pitches for strikes, and made just one mistake - a fourth inning solo home run by Freddie Freeman - against the hapless Braves. Unfortunately, his mates didn't show much offense before posting a five-run eighth inning to win going away 6-1. Lester will carry a snappy 1.83 ERA into his next start on the road in Pittsburgh.

Zobrist went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Monday's victory against the Pirates.

Zobrist's two RBI bring his total up to 12 for the season to go along with 14 runs scored. The veteran is now hitting .253 in his first season in Chicago, and should continue to have run scoring and RBI opportunities for as long as he is hitting in the middle of the Cubs' potent lineup.

Wood pitched 0.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Braves, walking one batter and retiring two others.

Having appeared in 11 games this season, Wood is continuing to show his value to the Cubs by shutting down batters in short stints out of the bullpen. The only blemish on his game logs this season is an outing where he surrendered two runs in less than one inning. Apart from that game, Wood hasn't given up any runs and is carrying a 0.95 WHIP and 9.95 K/9.

Heyward's day off Monday is due to a sore right wrist, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said that he doesn't anticipate that Heyward's absence will be a lengthy one. Matt Szczur replaced him in the lineup Monday night, and Heyward is currently considered day-to-day.

News
Baez is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves.

Baez has started just five games since joining the Cubs in mid-April, but he will get the nod at third base Friday with Kris Bryant (ankle) out, and will hit fifth against Braves starter Aaron Blair. Bryant is not facing a long-term absence but could be out a couple days, according to Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune, which could result in more starts for Baez in the near future.

John Lackey, #41

News
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 is a better reflection of his performance so far. He'll look to get back in the win column Friday, at home against Max Scherzer and the Nats.
