Kyle Hendricks picks up a quality start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks turned in a quality start Friday against the Cardinals.

Hendricks allowed two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Hendricks allowed both his runs early, but managed to settle in. In the first inning, Hendricks led things off with a single, walk and run-scoring single to the first three hitters he faced. Another run came in to score on a single later in the inning. Hendricks managed to get it together over the rest of the start. He threw five scoreless innings before leaving the game. Hendricks threw 89 pitches during the start. 

The Cubs battled back, giving Hendricks a no-decision. He’ll take on the Brewers in his next start.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo is out of the starting lineup yet again Friday against the Cardinals, as he continues to deal with a back injury.

Felix Doubront getting the start Saturday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

 Cubs pitcher Felix Doubront will start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, according to ESPN.com Friday.

Doubront, who is working his way back from a calf injury suffered just after his acquisition from the Red Sox, finished his rehab assignment last week at Double-A Tennessee. He allowed nine runs in 14 innings overall while on assignment, and it is not clear if the team intends to keep him in the rotation moving forward.

Time to get with the program on Jorge Soler
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

As much as I wrote about Jorge Soler leading up to his promotion and the day it actually came, I'm at risk of beating a dead horse here, but now that he has a couple 2-for-4 games under his belt, I feel the need to reiterate: You want him in Fantasy.

Maybe in shallower leagues where every team starts just three outfielders and half the owners checked out at the All-Star break, allowing you to build up incomparable depth at the position, OK, you can let him go, but the impact he could make for you this time of year is worth the risk of him sputtering like so many of the high-profile hitter prospects who came before him this year.

And aside from George Springer, I'm not sure any of those prospects was as prepared for his promotion as Soler. True, he ascended the ladder quickly, collecting just 175 at-bats above high Class A, but he was no average minor-leaguer, having played at the highest level of Cuba. Once it clicked for him after a two-year adjustment period, the minor leagues couldn't hold him back. In terms of batting average, slugging percentage and OPS, he was neck-and-neck with Kris Bryant at the time of his promotion.

And unlike Springer, Jon Singleton, Javier Baez, his success wasn't accompanied by a worrisome strikeout rate. He'll strike out his fair share, like any young slugger, but it won't be the impediment it's been for them.
