Cubs' Jon Lester: Start moved to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester will start Wednesday's game against the Rays, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

Lester had been scheduled to start Tuesday's outing, but the Cubs will push him back a day and send Mike Montgomery to the mound in his place Tuesday. Lester will look to carry his recent momentum into Wednesday's outing, as he's won each of his last two starts, allowing just three runs between said games (12 innings).

Cubs' Jen-Ho Tseng: Unlikely to pick up second start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs announced that Mike Montgomery would start their first game of the week Tuesday against the Rays, likely meaning Tseng will head to the bullpen, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.

Chicago purchased Tseng's contract from Triple-A Iowa and called upon him to start Sept. 14 against the Mets, with the right-hander getting roughed up for five runs over three innings in his major-league debut. That performance wasn't enough for manager Joe Maddon to justify giving Tseng a second turn in the rotation, so he'll give Montgomery another look as the fifth starter. Montgomery could join Tseng in the bullpen by the weekend, as the Cubs are seemingly on track to have Jake Arrieta (hamstring) available to start during the team's four-game series with the Brewers that kicks off Thursday.

Cubs' Mike Montgomery: Tabbed with Tuesday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Montgomery will start Tuesday's game against the Rays, Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reports.

Although it had looked like Montgomery was poised to pitch from the bullpen for the remainder of the season, the Cubs will call on him to make another start in their upcoming series against Tampa Bay. However, it doesn't appear that he's in line to remain in the rotation following Tuesday's outing. Montgomery has been used as a starter and reliever this season and has compiled a 3.57 ERA and 1.28 WHIP over 40 games (118.1 innings). However, he's struggled over his 12 starts. Among said games his ERA has inflated to 4.62.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Drives in two Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zobrist went 1-for-5 with two RBI in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Zobrist only reached base once, but he delivered an RBI groundout in the first inning and an RBI single in the third to propel the Cubs to the 4-3 victory. Zobrist is still batting just .238, but his track record and manager Joe Maddon's confidence in him should lead to plenty of at-bats to close out the regular season.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Snags win Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop (5-4) picked up the win in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He pitched a scoreless seventh inning while allowing a hit and a walk, striking out one.

Strop didn't start the inning off well, as he walked the leadoff hitter and then gave up a one-out single to put runners on first and second. But he avoided trouble by forcing the next two St. Louis hitters to ground out. Strop now has a strong 3.04 ERA and 1.19 WHIP as he remains a key member of the Chicago bullpen.
