Cubs' Jon Jay: Not in Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jay is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Blue Jays.

With manager Joe Maddon stacking the starting nine against southpaw JA Happ, Jay will head to the bench for the second time in the past three games. The centerfielder began the four-game set against the Reds with a 3-for-5 day, including two extra-base knocks, but failed to record a hit during the last three contests. In his place, Albert Almora earns the start in center while batting at the top of the order.

Cubs' Kyle Schwarber: Retreats to bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwarber is out of the lineup against the Blue Jays on Friday.

Schwarber will get the day off against left-hander JA Happ after starting seven of the past eight games. In his place, Ben Zobrist draws the assignment in left while Ian Happ mans the keystone.

Cubs' Alex Avila: Out of lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Avila is not in the lineup for Friday's series opener against Toronto.

Avila will receive a day off following a couple starts behind the plate while Victor Caratini takes over the catching duties. The 30-year-old hasn't been hitting great since joining the club at the trade deadline -- hitting .207 from the plate -- but he's sporting a .855 OPS during that span and just turned in a 2-for-4 day at the plate with a two-run home run and three RBI in Thursday's defeat to the Reds.

Cubs' Anthony Rizzo: Scores twice in Thursday loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rizzo went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

Rizzo has been on a tear over the last four games, as he's gone 9-for-17 with three doubles, two home runs and 10 RBI. He figures to continue providing outstanding fantasy value the rest of the way from the heart of a strong Cubs lineup.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Pitches well in loss Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery pitched 4.1 innings of scoreless relief in Thursday's 13-10 loss to the Reds. He allowed three hits and a walk, while striking out four.

Montgomery was really the only Cubs pitcher to find success, but he was pulled after throwing 61 pitches. He's been a solid long reliever for the team, and this was his longest outing since shifting back to the bullpen when Jose Quintana was acquired at the end of July.
