Cubs' Jon Lester: Plays catch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (shoulder/lat) played catch on the field prior to Tuesday's game against the Reds, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

This is an encouraging development, as Lester was seen playing catch less than a week after landing on the disabled list, suggesting he may not be sidelined for much longer. His return date should become clearer once he ramps up his throwing, but Lester isn't expected to miss more than one or two starts while sidelined. In the meantime, Mike Montgomery will take his turn in the rotation, starting Wednesday against the Reds.

Cubs' Ben Zobrist: Has manager's backing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Joe Maddon plans on keeping Zobrist in a prominent lineup spot most days despite his .226 average, Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago reports.

Zobrist is having one of the worst seasons of his 12-year MLB career, but Maddon has confidence in the 36-year-old. "I keep telling him, 'I wanted to keep you rested for this time of the year. This is your time coming up, September/October,'" Maddon said. "This is his time of the year. He's trending properly right now. Even if he's not hitting, he'll accept his walk for the next hitter. Putting him in the middle, he's surrounded by guys that will drive him in." Zobrist will continue to get occasional rest days, but his veteran presence should keep him in the lineup most days as the Cubs fight for a playoff spot.

Cubs' Anthony Rizzo: Named NL Player of the Week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rizzo was named National League Player of the Week on Monday after going 12-for 28 with two home runs and 13 RBI over his past seven games, Joe Trezza of MLB.com reports.

This is the second time Rizzo has received this honor in his career, with the other coming in 2014. The 28-year-old is slashing .292/.391/.523 since the All-Star break and should be a key contributor during fantasy playoffs.

Cubs' Rene Rivera: Scores run in debut with new club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivera went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Sunday's win over the Blue Jays.

Rivera was making his Cubs debut after being claimed on waivers Saturday. Alex Avila will start most days behind the plate for Chicago, but Rivera figures to be his primary backup the rest of the way and could be in line for more playing time if Avila got hurt.

Cubs' Justin Wilson: Grabs first win since trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilson (4-4) recorded the win Sunday against the Blue Jays by retiring a single hitter. He walked two batters as well.

Wilson came on in the top of the 10th with two out and runners on second and third. He promptly walked two straight batters, which scored a run to make it 5-3 Toronto, before retiring the final hitter on a fly to center. Though he wasn't overly effective, Wilson grabbed the win when the Cubs scored three runs in the bottom of the inning. Wilson has a brutal 6.35 ERA and 3.18 WHIP in eight games (5.2 innings) with his new team.
