Cubs' John Lackey: Surrenders five runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lackey (4-5) allowed five runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five batters over five innings during Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

The veteran has now allowed 13 runs -- including five home runs -- through his past 15.1 innings. Lackey sports a 5.18 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 2.0 HR/9, which limits the value of his 9.4 K/9. His 21.0 HR/FB rate is probably eyeing positive regression, but Lackey's 5.02 FIP is another discouraging mark. It isn't out of the question to fade him outside of favorable matchups until he shows signs of turning his season around, and there is no guarantee that happens. Lackey lines up to face the Cardinals at Wrigley Field for his next start.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Out with sore wrist
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zobrist is not in the lineup Saturday against the Dodgers due to a sore wrist, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Manager Joe Maddon confirmed he was available off the bench if needed, so the ailment doesn't appear to be anything overly serious. The Cubs will likely wait to see how his wrist feels during warmups Sunday before determining whether he'll return to the lineup for the series finale against the Dodgers. Ian Happ will draw the start at second base in his stead.
