Who is worth targeting among the Cubs' rotation hopefuls?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/5/2014) Clearly, the headliners from Saturday's trade between the Cubs and Athletics were Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and both immediately become must-owns in AL-only leagues. Their departure leaves the Cubs with two big holes to fill in their rotation, and there is no shortage of candidates to fill them.

Carlos Villanueva has replaced Samardzija for his Saturday start at the Nationals, but he is not necessarily among the candidates to fill a spot long-term. Even if he were, Villanueva has not had a sterling track record as a starter (career 4.94 ERA), so he can be passed over in virtually all Fantasy formats.

Then there is Dan Straily, who was acquired from the A's as part of the return for Samardzija and Hammel. He will report to Triple-A Iowa, but according to CSNChicago.com, he could be up with the big club soon. Because of his strikeout potential, Straily is worth stashing in NL-only leagues. He has a Jake Odorizzi-like skill set -- complete with shaky control and a high flyball rate -- but without a pitcher's park like Tropicana Field (or his former home of O.co Coliseum) to come home to, there may be little respite from home runs.

A better risk than Straily is Tsuyoshi Wada, who has already been announced as Tuesday's starter at the Reds. He has similar strikeout potential to Straily but with fewer control issues and slightly less pronounced flyball tendencies. He is worth pursuing in some deeper mixed leagues, as well as in NL-only formats.

Chris Rusin, just called up for bullpen duty, Dallas Beeler and Kyle Hendricks will also be in the mix, according to ESPN.com, but none has appeal outside of deeper NL-only leagues. With so much competition for two open spots, none of those three are really worth the trouble of expending FAAB dollars or a waiver priority.


Cubs, A's complete mega-deal


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) The Cubs and Athletics have completed a mega-deal which will send pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland for shortstop Addison Russell .

The two sides reached a deal Friday night, but waited to officially announce the move Saturday. Samardzija and Hammel will slot into the team's rotation, though it's unclear how soon they'll make their first start with their new club.

Russell joins the Cubs' solid collection of prospects. Chicago will also receive outfield prospect Billy McKinney, pitcher Dan Straily and a player to be named later. Of the bunch, only Straily is expected to play a role with the major-league club this season.  


Report: A's, Cubs complete blockbuster deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) According to a report from FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Athletics have acquired pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs for shortstop prospect Addison Russell

According to ESPN's Keith Law, the Cubs will receive outfielder Billy McKinney, pitcher Dan Straily and a player to be named later.

Hammel tossed a quality start in a win over Nationals Friday and Samardzija was scheduled to pitch Sunday for the Cubs before the deal. Samardzija is 2-7 with a 2.83 ERA over 17 starts (108 innings). Hammel is 8-5 with a 2.98 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 17 starts (108 2/3 innings).


Dan Straily sent to Sacramento


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2014) Mediocrity will apparently not keep you in an Athletics rotation that leads the American League in team ERA. Dan Straily has been dispatched to Triple-A Sacramento.

Straily has been far from horrible, especially in recent outings. He has given up 11 earned runs in his last 21 2/3 innings pitched. He has yielded just 33 hits in 38 1/3 innings this season, but his 1-2 record and 4.93 ERA were not good enough to maintain his rotation spot.

He had been scheduled to start Tuesday against the White Sox.


Dan Straily tosses quality start vs. Mariners Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Athletics pitcher Dan Straily didn't record a decision Wednesday after surrendering three earned runs on three hits and four walks in six innings while striking out three in his team's 6-4 loss to the Mariners.

Straily was victimized by solo home runs in the second and fifth innings before giving up a sacrifice fly in the sixth. His control remained an issue, as he's now walked seven batters over his last two starts. Straily owns a 4.93 ERA and 34:15 K:BB ratio in 38 1/3 innings. He's due to face the White Sox Tuesday.


Dan Straily can't make it past five innings in loss to Boston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2014) Athletics starting pitcher Dan Straily became the first Oakland starter not to pitch at least five innings this season on Friday against the Red Sox. He was pegged with his second loss of the season in a 7-1 defeat.

He was charged with two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three in 4 1/3 innings. He threw 82 pitches, 40 for strikes. He also faced 20 batters and started 17 of them off with a ball.

Straily owns a 5.01 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP over 32 1/3 innings. He will look to get back on track Wednesday against Seattle.

His team took him off the hook for a potential loss with a seventh-inning sacrifice fly, leaving the Oakland starter with a no-decision. Straily owns a 5.14 ERA and 28:8 K:BB ratio while giving up at least one home run in each of his five starts. He's lined up to face the Red Sox in Boston Friday.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
