News
Russell went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

Sunday concluded what was a productive series for Russell, as he finished the three-game set with three homers and four RBI. Russell has already achieved a new career-high of 17 home runs this season, but he has been a consistent run producer as well, as his 78 RBI are tops among National League shortstops.

News
Arrieta (16-5) tossed eight shutout innings and allowed just two hits and three walks with six strikeouts in a victory Tuesday over the Padres.

Arrieta has a four-game winning streak and has gone eight shutout innings twice in that stretch. His peripherals have been uncharacteristically poor -- 19:13 K:BB and three home runs allowed in 27.1 innings -- but 20 wins remains a possibility, and his ERA is down to 2.62, all good news as he angles for a second straight Cy Young award.

News
Hammel was shelled for 10 runs (six earned) on 10 hits and two walks across just 3.1 innings in Sunday's loss to Colorado. He struck out two.

Hammel's 22-inning scoreless streak came to a prompt end Sunday, as he was blitzed for seven runs in the first inning and was finished off later by Nolan Arenado's second three-run homer of the game. Hammel has had a strong season overall, as his ERA still sits at a tidy 3.05 even after Sunday's shellacking, and entered the contest on a six-start win streak. He will have the opportunity to get back on track Saturday versus the Dodgers.

News
Bryant homered, scored twice, walked twice, and knocked in two runs in a 1-for-2 game Tuesday against the Padres.

Bryant extended his hitting streak to six games, a span in which he is hitting an utterly absurd .481/.500/1.074 with five homers and 13 RBI. If Bryant goes on to win the MVP, his ability to go on hot streaks like this one will be the reason why. He now has 33 home runs and trails only Mark Trumbo and Edwin Encarnacion on the major league leaderboard.

News
Rondon (triceps) said his right arm felt well after playing catch for the first time since landing on the DL, the Chicago Tribune's Mark Gonzales reports.

He hopes to throw again Friday or Saturday, and it remains possible that he will come off the DL when first eligible in early September. Rondon's fantasy value has been sapped in many formats now that he is no longer getting saves, but he still has the potential to deliver valuable ratios, strikeouts and holds if he can get healthy.

Position Breakdown

News
Soler (leg) is back in the lineup, hitting cleanup and manning left field Wednesday against the Padres.

Soler has been a league average hitter this year (101 wRC+), but he has nine home runs in 197 plate appearances after managing just 10 long balls in 404 plate appearances last season. He won't play every day due to the Cub's ridiculous depth, but whenever he is in the lineup, particularly in the middle of the order, he can safely be deployed in most formats.

Szczur is in Sunday's lineup versus Colorado.

Szczur was brought in after Chicago scratched Jorge Soler from the lineup with leg soreness. Szczur will start in left field and be batting eighth as the Cubs conclude their series against the Rockies.

Kyle Hendricks, #28
Year-to-date Stats

News
Hendricks (12-7) pitched six innings, allowing two runs, four hits and two walks while striking out eight in Wednesday's win over the Padres.

Hendricks has now allowed three runs or fewer in 17 consecutive starts, the longest such streak in the majors this season. Wednesday's win was his third in a row and extended his career-high victory total to 12. The 26-year-old has been phenomenal this season, owning MLB's best ERA at 2.19 through 24 starts and 152 innings. Hendricks finished August with 32 strikeouts over 35.1 innings to go along with his second career complete-game shutout. He'll look to keep things rolling Tuesday in his next start versus the Pirates -- a team he held to one run over six innings in a victory on June 19.

News
Lester (14-4) allowed a run on five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts over six innings in a win Monday over the Padres.

Lester extended his quality start streak to five games with Monday's start, and he has struck out at least six batters and walked two or fewer in each of those five starts. He is 4-0 in that span and has lowered his ERA to 2.81. Pitchers like Noah Syndergaard and Max Scherzer have better peripherals this season, but Lester's excellent surface numbers could place him the Cy Young conversation, especially if he keeps pitching like this down the stretch.

Zobrist went 2-for-4 with two RBI and scored twice in Wednesday's win over San Diego.

The veteran extended his hitting streak to five games Wednesday with a two-run triple, his second three-bagger of the year, in the top of the first inning. Zobrist has now collected 10 hits in his last 22 at-bats -- including four extra-base knocks -- while tallying six RBI and six runs during that stretch. He continues to be a beast on the road, hitting .316 with nine of his 14 homers coming away from home.

News
Rizzo is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Padres.

He has started every game since July 30, and the Cubs will take advantage of their unmatched depth to give him a day off while still deploying a pretty intimidating lineup Wednesday. Kris Bryant will man first base and hit second while Ben Zobrist steps into Rizzo's typical spot in the three hole.

News
Heyward hit his sixth home run, a two run shot, in a 1-for-4 game in Monday's win over San Diego.

Heyward made the most out of his first start after a weekend off, as he homered for the first time since July 29 against Seattle. He owned a brutal .196/.224/.250 batting line in 15 games since and has sat out six games in that time. The home run is a good sign for Heyward, but he'll probably need a few more solid games before he has completely earned back manager Joe Maddon's confidence.

News
Contreras is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres.

As is typically the case whenever Jon Lester starts, David Ross will open the game behind the plate, and Contreras will come off the bench. Contreras is seeing more time off now than he was when he originally joined the Cubs in June, but he has remained effective with the bat, posting a .275/.351/.431 slash line this month.

News
Chapman allowed a hit and struck out the side to secure his 29th save of the season Wednesday against the Padres.

Since blowing the save and being tagged with his only loss of the year last Friday, Chapman has rebounded nicely by locking down two saves while striking out four in his last two appearances. Since joining the Cubs, he's 9-for-11 in save opportunities and has surrendered just two earned runs in 15 games with the team.

Baez is in Sunday's lineup against the Rockies.

Baez will start at third base and be batting eighth for Sunday's series finale against the Rockies at the hitter-friendly Coors Field. Over the last seven games, Baez has gone 5-for-14 with three runs scored, bringing his batting average up to .278 for the year.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least Sep 3 (Updated - 8/23/16)
News
Lackey (shoulder) played catch Tuesday, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

His move to the DL was described as "precautionary more than anything," and Lackey's ability to resume throwing just days after being deactivated fully supports that notion. The Cubs are hoping Lackey will be able to throw a bullpen session this weekend in Los Angeles in preparation for an early-September return to the major league rotation.
