Cubs' Kris Bryant: Ends power drought with 26th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant went 1-for-3 with his 26th homer -- his first since the All-Star break -- and two runs Wednesday against the White Sox.

Since socking a homer in the All-Star game, Bryant had managed just two extra-base hits (both doubles) in 12 second-half games, but he's been smacking enough singles to keep his numbers afloat nonetheless. Now that he's broken the seal, it'd be no surprise to see Bryant go on a late-season power surge; his first 30-homer season is nearly guaranteed at this point, and the 40 mark is a very reasonable possibility.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Busts Wednesday's game open with grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's win over the White Sox, putting the cherry on top with an eighth-inning grand slam.

The second-year shortstop's first homer since way back on July 5 put the game out of reach, turning a 4-1 lead into an 8-1 blowout. Russell's numbers have ticked up just a little this year, but he's showing positive signs -- his walk rate is well up, his strikeout rate noticeably down. It's enough to make him worth buying on for next year, but Russell's stat package this season hasn't been very helpful outside of deep fantasy formats.

Cubs' Aroldis Chapman: Sharp in debut with new squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chapman made his Cubs debut Wednesday, coming on with a seven-run lead and striking out two in a perfect ninth against the White Sox.

The Cubs didn't need their new closer to preserve a tight one -- they just wanted to give him a chance to get his sea legs under him after Monday's trade, so they tossed him in on the back end of a blowout of their crosstown rivals. The transition to pitching in the NL Central won't be a hard one for Chapman, who spent six seasons with the Reds and should remain one of the top few closers in the game.

Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Gives up three runs in loss to White Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hendricks (9-7) allowed three runs on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 5.2 innings in a loss Tuesday to the White Sox.

Hendricks hadn't allowed an earned run since June 29th, but had his scoreless streak snapped when Jose Abreu hit an RBI single in the first inning. Still, Hendricks was nasty, as he induced 14 strikeouts and seven groundouts and threw 64 strikes in 97 pitches. Even with the hiccup, Hendricks still owns a slick 2.39 ERA.
