Cubs' Addison Russell: Collects four hits in win over Pirates
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell went 4-for-6 with an RBI and three runs scored during Monday's 14-3 win over the Pirates.

Russell singled in each of his first four trips to the plate, driving in a run in the first inning and scoring on three occasions as the Cubs walloped Chad Kuhl and the rest of the Pittsburgh staff. He had gotten off to a nice start as a run producer, but Russell has now begun to hit for average and has seen his OPS rise 120 points as he's collected nine base knocks over the last five contests.

Cubs' Brett Anderson: Beats Pirates with quality start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Anderson (2-0) allowed three runs (one earned) on five hits and six walks across six innings during Monday's win over the Pirates. He struck out three.

Anderson allowed a run in the bottom of the first after a pair of walks proceeded an RBI single for David Freese, but he was able to rebound and coasted through the end of the fifth inning. He got into a bit of trouble in the sixth and allowed a pair of runs with two outs, but those ultimately went down as unearned, as an Anthony Rizzo error prolonged the inning. Anderson's control has been spotty in two of his starts this season, but he has allowed just one walk combined over his other two outings and still holds a solid ERA of 3.54 heading into Sunday's matchup with the Red Sox.

Cubs' Willson Contreras: Sits out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contreras is out of the lineup Monday against the Pirates.

Manager Joe Maddon will rest Contreras for the second consecutive day, as Miguel Montero draws another start behind the plate. It's still expected that Contreras will take on the bulk of the catching duties going forward, so fantasy owners shouldn't read too much into the second-year player receiving two games off in a row. Contreras has gotten off to a fine start to the new season, hitting .269 with two homers, four doubles and 10 RBI.

Cubs' Addison Russell: Productive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

Russell is once again looking like a very solid contributor for the Cubs and fantasy owners. He's hitting .257, and after posting a .238 mark last season, owners shouldn't expect too much in the average category. However, it's nice to see that his strikeout rate is down to 17.1 percent so far this season after he posted a 22.6 percent mark in 2016 and a 28.5 percent rate in his 2015 rookie season. If he can keep the Ks down, Russell should be able to top his 2016 numbers.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Collects two hits Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zobrist (back) went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

After sitting out the previous two games, it was good to see Zobrist productive in his return to the lineup. The veteran will likely see more rest days moving forward so that he can stay healthy and contribute at the plate.
