Cubs and OF Justin Ruggiano agree to one-year, $2 million deal, avoiding arbitration.
Ruggiano is a 20/20 talent who will drain your batting average. It remains to be seen if he will get full-time work in the Cubs' outfield, but he is certainly worth tossing a reserve round selection to in deep mixed leagues given the potential power/speed combination he can bring to the table.ANALYST: Ray Flowers
Jake Marisnick was 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored on Thursday night against the Royals.
Jake Marisnick had two hits from the bottom of the order which included a double and a run scored in Houston’s 5 -2 win over Kansas City on Thursday night. His double in the second inning with two outs kept the inning alive and Marisnick scored on a single by Jose Altuve before Yordano Ventura left the game after a rain delay in the second inning. Although Marisnick struggled in the second half, he did finish September/October with a .275 average with three home runs and seven stolen bases. Analysis: Greg Jewett
