Cubs' Hector Rondon: Fantasy value takes hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs' acquisition of Aroldis Chapman on Monday will push Rondon to a setup role, Fred Zinkie of reports.

Rondon has been fantastic this season, but the Cubs felt they needed a sure thing in the ninth inning, and there are few surer things than Chapman. Rondon, who has converted 18 of 22 save opportunities this year, should thrive in the eighth inning, so he'll still have value in leagues that count holds.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is back in the lineup for the Cubs on Monday after leaving the game with a heel bruise on Sunday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN reports.

This is good news for Russell, who was listed as day-to-day. Over his last 10 games Russell is hitting .371 with seven RBI. During this stretch, he has raised his average from .237 to .249. Russell will hit seventh against White Sox right-hander Miguel Gonzalez on Monday.

Blue Jays' Russell Martin: Knee believed to be progressing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin's knee continues to improve, and he's in the lineup Monday against the Padres, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports. "All indications are that he's pretty good," manager John Gibbons said.

Martin missed the previous three games after falling in a sauna, but it appears as though he's mostly moved past the issue. Gibbons intimated that Martin would again be in the lineup Tuesday before a potential maintenance day Wednesday.

Cubs' Dexter Fowler: Starting at DH Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fowler, who was out of Sunday's lineup due to general soreness, is leading off and serving as the Cubs' DH on Monday against the White Sox, ESPN's Jesse Rogers reports.

The hamstring injury that landed Fowler on the DL earlier in the year was bothering him Sunday and the Cubs will take advantage of a series in an American League park to give him more rest Monday. The Cubs could look to deploy Fowler at DH again Tuesday, but then the Chicago series shifts to Wrigley Field on Wednesday, at which point it will be interesting to see if Fowler gets deployed in the outfield or requires more rest.

Tigers' Cameron Maybin: Day-to-day with strained back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maybin, who is not in Monday's lineup, is considered day-to-day with a back strain, George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Maybin was held out of action Sunday, and he'll miss a second straight contest Monday while battling tightness and discomfort in his back. The Tigers will take a wait-and-see approach to the issue, and as of now the hope is that he'll only miss a few days and avoid a DL stint.
