Tim Lincecum threw five no-hit innings against the Cubs on Wednesday but did issue four walks while striking out five.
Lincecum posted one of his best outings of the season on Wednesday night, but was unable to go past the fifth inning after throwing 94 pitches. He is now 4-3 with a 4.18 ERA and 1.54 WHIP through his first 11 starts while striking out just over one batter per inning pitched (9.10 K/9). Although he hasn't been able to bounce back completely to his Cy Young Award days, he is still a solid fantasy option to deploy as the season progresses. Lincecum will look to keep up his recent production when he takes on the Reds on Tuesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Kyle Schwarber is not in the Cubs lineup on Monday.
Manager Joe Maddon has made it abundantly clear that Schwarber isn't going anywhere, even when Miguel Montero completes his rehab assignment. Monday night simply appears to be regular rest for the young backstop, so David Ross is catching instead and batting seventh. On FanDuel, Ross is listed at a very affordable $2,200, so he might worth a look in daily formats considering the starting nod tonight. Analysis: Dom Murtha
David Amerson suffered a shoulder injury in Monday's practice.
This is not a good sign for the young corner, who regressed mightily last season, grading out as one of the worst CB's in the league last season. If he wanted to get back in the coaching staff's favor, training camp was going to be the place to do it, but unfortunately he was injured on Monday afternoon. The good news here is that the injury doesn't seem to be too serious, so he might have a chance to prove himself going forward. Analysis: Dom Murtha
