News
Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta turned in another quality start but was pegged with the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks in Arizona, dropping to 5-2 on the year. The right-hander permitted three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out eight over 6 2/3 innings of a 3-2 defeat.

Over his last nine starts covering 59 2/3 innings, Arrieta has allowed only 11 earned runs. He owns a 2.12 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP over 14 starts (85 innings). He will make his next start Saturday at home against St. Louis.

News
Cubs outfielder Justin Ruggiano has been on a nice run offensively since late June, batting .371 with a .405 on-base percentage, .557 slugging percentage and .963 OPS in his last 19 games. Ruggiano explains his recent surge is due to seeing regular playing time.

"In spring training, I had only 35, 40 at-bats, and for me to say I feel comfortable, it usually takes 60 to sometimes even 100 [at-bats]," Ruggiano said, per MLB.com. "The more at-bats, the more comfortable I get, the more pitches I see, the more I can make adjustments. Sometimes you can come out and be hot right out of the gates, sometimes it takes awhile. For me, it's just getting into a rhythm."

News
After missing more than a month with a strained oblique, Cubs utility player Emilio Bonifacio came off the DL Tuesday. But the bigger news for Fantasy owners is that he started his first game back. With Arismendy Alcantara now up in the big leagues and Chris Coghlan and Justin Ruggiano crushing it in recent weeks, his starting role was less than assured.

And frankly, it still is. Bonifacio's start Tuesday was against a left-hander, Eric Stults, and the switch-hitter entered the day batting .362 against lefties compared to just .230 against righties. Given that Chris Coghlan, who bats left-handed, was out of the lineup Tuesday, this could have the makings of a platoon.

As an everyday player, Bonifacio's steals potential and versatility would make him a nice find in Rotisserie leagues. As a part-timer, he's nothing more than waiver fodder.

If you need steals, you certainly have nothing to lose by making a move for him now, but understand he's hardly an open-and-shut case.

Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks turned in a fantastic start Tuesday against the Padres.

Hendricks tossed seven scoreless innings, giving up five hits. He struck out five and walked three during the outing. Hendricks had the ground ball working well. He put two men on in three different innings, but was able to get inning-ending double plays each time. Hendricks also managed to finish strong, striking out the side in his final inning of work. 

The win brought Hendricks to 1-0 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the Cardinals.

A tremendous power display continued Tuesday night for Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who snagged the National League lead in home runs by adding two to his total.

Rizzo, who has 25 on the season, slugged solo blasts in the third and seventh innings. He has five home runs and six RBI in the last four games. He has also raised his batting average from .272 to .283 with 15 hits in his last 40 at-bats.

News
It's easy to conclude Cubs starting pitcher Travis Wood is having a rough campaign in 2014. The most evident number is his career-worst 5.12 ERA through 20 starts.

"I think it's a command thing for Travis," pitching coach Chris Bosio said Sunday, per MLB.com. "He's getting in hitters' counts and doesn't have the command he had last year. We talk about it a lot as a staff. Try to find out what's working and what's not working. Unfortunately for Travis right now, he shows flashes and the next thing you know, he'll walk a guy.

"He's had more 3-0 counts this year at this point than he had all of last year. Last year, he was unbelievable and very consistent, National League All-Star, but unfortunately for baseball players, these are cycles we go in. He's trying to find it, and he's searching."
