    Headshot for Adbert Alzolay

    Left-handed reliever Edwin Escobar will return to MLB with the Chicago Cubs. Details of the contract are not yet released, but Escobar has confirmed the transaction on his social media, and local reporting in Venezuela has also confirmed the signing. Escobar, a 6'2", 225-pound lefty, was once an elite prospect, ranked among the top 100 prospects in the game before the 2014 season. He had two brief cups of coffee in the major leagues with Boston in 2014 and Arizona in 2016, totaling 25 2/3 innings with a 7.01 ERA. Escobar has spent the past seven seasons in Japan in the NPB, putting together a strong 3.17 ERA and 1.19 WHIP pitching out of the bullpen, with 383 strikeouts over 392 1/3 innings. He will add depth to a Cubs bullpen currently headed by closer Adbert Alzolay. The newest Cub has deep family roots in MLB with father Jose Escobar a former Cleveland infielder and cousins Vicente Campos, Alcides Escobar, Kelvim Escobar, and Ronald Acuna, Jr. all having major league time.

  • Adbert Alzolay Throws Live Batting Practice

    Headshot for Adbert Alzolay

    Chicago Cubs closer Adbert Alzolay (forearm) threw 20 pitches in a live batting practice session to Jeimer Candelario on Wednesday. Alzolay was placed on the injured list in the middle of September with a right-forearm strain, but he's making good progress and could return to the Cubs bullpen before the end of the 2023 regular season this Sunday. The Cubbies are currently in the final wild-card spot in the National League entering play on Wednesday, so they can use all the help they can get to try to get into the postseason. With Alzolay sidelined, the team's last two saves have gone to Julian Merryweather and Jose Cuas, but Alzolay should return to the primary closing role once he's activated.

  • Adbert Alzolay To Throw Bullpen Friday

    Headshot for Adbert Alzolay

    Chicago Cubs closer Adbert Alzolay (forearm) will throw a touch-and-feel bullpen session on Friday. Alzolay is trying to make it back before the end of the regular season after suffering a right-forearm strain, but he's running out of time. However, if the Cubbies secure a wild-card spot in the National League, the 28-year-old right-hander should be available to serve as the team's closer in the postseason. He is eligible to return from the injured list on Sept. 26. Alzolay has been great for Chicago in a high-leverage bullpen role in 2023, posting a 2.71 ERA (3.01 FIP), 1.02 WHIP, a career-high 22 saves, 12 walks and 66 strikeouts in 63 relief innings. Until he's able to return, Julian Merryweather figures to remain the Cubs' primary option for saves.

    Chicago Cubs right-hander Adbert Alzolay (forearm) played catch on Saturday before his club's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, according to The 28-year-old was placed on the injured list earlier this week with a right forearm strain. There's a chance Alzolay can return to the Cubs before the end of the regular season, though. Over 63 innings out of the pen, he's produced the best numbers of his career, posting a 2.71 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 26.4% strikeout rate with 22 saves. Fantasy managers should expect Alzolay to slot right back into the closer role once he's activated.

  • Michael Fulmer Activated From Injured List Monday, Earns Save

    Headshot for Adbert Alzolay

    Chicago Cubs relief pitcher Michael Fulmer (forearm) was activated from the 15-day injured list Monday after recovering from a right forearm strain and earned his second save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Rockies. Fulmer came on to pitch the bottom of the ninth inning up by one with one out and the bases empty. He allowed a walk and hit a batter before getting the second and third outs on strikeouts. The Cubs put closer Adbert Alzolay (forearm) on the 15-day IL Monday with a right forearm strain and Fulmer has closed previously in his career, so it appears that he may get the first shot in the interim. He owns a 4.42 ERA with a 10.26 K/9 rate and a 4.42 BB/9 rate in 57 innings pitched. Fulmer is now worth a look in deeper roto leagues to finish out the season.

  • Adbert Alzolay Goes On 15-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Adbert Alzolay

    The Chicago Cubs placed relief pitcher Adbert Alzolay (forearm) on the 15-day injured list (retroactive to Sept. 10) on Monday with a right-forearm strain and activated right-hander Michael Fulmer (forearm) from the injured list in a corresponding move. Alzolay had been serving as the Cubs' primary closer, but he'll now miss at least the next two weeks and may not be able to help fantasy managers the rest of the way. If this is the end of the 28-year-old Venezuelan's season, he'll finish with a 2.71 ERA (3.01 FIP), 1.02 WHIP, a career-high 22 saves, 12 walks and 66 strikeouts in 63 relief innings over 57 appearances. Julian Merryweather picked up the save for Chicago on Sunday and should be the priority addition for those seeking saves in fantasy the rest of the way.
