Cubs' Duane Underwood: Returns to action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Underwood (elbow) returned to the hill Friday for Double-A Tennessee, allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out two over four innings.

The Cubs' top pitching prospect appears to be past the elbow stiffness that kept him back at extended spring training for the first month of the season. This is excellent news, as dynasty-league owners no longer have to worry about the injury turning into something more serious. Underwood should stay with Tennessee for most of the season, but could be heard from in single-season leagues in 2017.

Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Start pushed to Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hendricks' next start will pushed back to Thursday 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 Pirates, but the Cubs can now push him back to Thursday against the Nationals, while getting Jason Hammel, Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester to take 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.

Cubs' John Lackey: Start pushed to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lackey will start Sunday against the Pirates after his scheduled start Saturday was rained out, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

The Cubs will push Lackey back a day, as expected, while taking the off day as an opportunity to push Kyle Hendricks back a series and pitch Jason Hammel, Jake Arrieta and Jon Lester against the division-rival Pirates next week. Lackey will face Julio Teheran in Sunday's game and remains a strong play in all formats.

Cubs' Matt Szczur: Makes rare plate appearance pay off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matt Szczur swatted a grand slam home run in his only plate appearance to help propel the Chicago Cubs to a 6-1 win over Atlanta on Friday afternoon.

Szczur has only accumulated 27 at bats this season, but he has made the most of them, hitting .333 with a pair of home runs and 10 RBI. Generally a reserve, he has shown the ability to produce with limited playing time, but he would likely need an injury or prolonged slump from one of other Cubs' outfielders to generate much consistent fantasy value.

Cubs' Jon Lester: Posts another strong outing in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jon 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.
