News
Cubs second baseman Addison Russell was held out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mets for the first time since June 7. It was just the fourth time he wasn't in the lineup since his promotion from the minors.

Russell is mired in a 1-for-17 slump in his last five games. He is batting just .154 in his last 12 games, dropping his season average from .259 to .239.

News
Cubs catcher Miguel Montero slugged his 10th home run of the season in the 6-1 win over the Mets on Thursday. Montero's two-run shot came in the ninth inning with his team already up by three runs, so the home run came as little consequence to the outcome of the game.

The home run was Montero's first since June 13, breaking a 13-game drought. His season-high is 18, which came in 2011.

News
Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has had successive multi-hit games for the first time in two weeks, but a third one is quite unlikely. He is on the bench for the Friday afternoon game against visiting Miami.

Castro has started all but two games at shortstop this season, but he has been fairly unproductive after a bounce-back season in 2014. He owns a slash line of .263/.298/.341 with just 26 runs scored as midseason approaches.

News
Jake Arrieta (8-5) was magnificent in his start against the Mets on Thursday. The Cubs' right-hander fired eight strong innings, allowing just one run on five hits with no walks issued. He struck out seven, and really took advantage of a weak Mets offense.

The only run to score against Arrieta came on an RBI-double by Curtis Granderson in the third inning. But Arrieta was stingy aside from that, as he retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced in the 6-1 victory.

Arrieta's ERA dropped to a solid 2.80, as this now makes three consecutive starts of allowing no more than one run.

Jason Hammel, #39
Year-to-date Stats
WLIPERABBK

News
Cubs starter Jason Hammel pitched well enough to win Friday against Miami. But counterpart Tom Koehler pitched just a little bit better.

Hammel allowed just two earned runs on five hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. But blasts by Christian Yelich in the first inning and Justin Bour in the sixth doomed him to his fourth loss in nine decisions.

Inconsistency has plagued Hammel recently. He has not managed successive quality starts since his first two outings in June. But his latest effort lowered his ERA on the season to a fine 2.89.

Bryant was replaced at third by Jonathan Herrera, who will bat seventh. Bryant is hitting .171 with two home runs and four RBI in his last 12 games.

The Cubs are the underdogs (+125) at New York on Thursday.

News
Cubs outfielder Jorge Soler could return to the lineup this weekend, manager Joe Maddon told reporters Thursday. 

Soler, who is on the 15-day disabled list due to an ankle sprain, is 0 for 7 with three strikeouts through his first two rehab games with Triple-A Iowa. He will play again Thursday before he is re-evaluated.

"It depends on what he looks like," Maddon said, per ESPN.com. "I haven’t really heard anything pro or con. He’s just getting his feet on the ground again."

This was Herrera's first longball in nearly two years. His last home run prior to Thursday came on July 7, 2013. Herrera was getting a spot start at third base on Thursday, allowing Kris Bryant to have the afternoon off.
