Player Notes
Cubs manager Rick Renteria announced Saturday that Jose Veras is "out for now" as the Cubs closer.

Advice: After giving the veteran right-hander the dreaded vote of confidence after Friday's blown save, this is merely a formality. Renteria added that he'll see who emerges as a ninth inning option, but Pedro Strop and Hector Rondon should be viewed as the favorites.

Cubs manager Rick Renteria gave closer Jose Veras a vote of confidence on Friday, saying "he's still our guy".

Advice: Renteria elaborated saying that it was too early to make a move just yet, and that he believes Veras's stuff is still there. While it's a nice sentiment, he's blown each of his two save chances thus far while posting a 12.27 ERA, 2.46 WHIP and 3/7 K/BB ratio over his 3 2/3 innings of work, and has also hit three batters. Fantasy owners speculating for saves should stash Pedro Strop or Hector Rondon, as one more blown opportunity could mean the end for Veras.

Jose Veras allowed two runs Friday against the Cardinals to blow his second save of the season.

Advice: Veras' shaky start to the season continues. He allowed a hit, a walk, and hit two batters. The first run scored on a passed ball and Matt Carpenter eventually tied things up with a sacrifice fly. Veras was able to get Kolten Wong to ground out to escape the jam, but it was an ugly appearance. He now has now allowed five runs on two hits and seven walks over 3 2/3 innings this season. Cubs manager Rick Renteria said after the game that he's sticking by Veras as his closer, but he needs to turn it around soon.

Sat, Apr 12 Rotoworld
Cubs manager Rick Renteria is not concerned with Jose Veras' early struggles.

Advice: Veras blew a save in his first appearance of the season last Wednesday against the Pirates and walked four batters and threw a wild pitch in two-thirds of an inning Sunday, but Renteria is optimistic that things will get better from here. "(Veras) has only thrown a couple of times for us and in the spring (nine appearances). It's very hard for me to say I am concerned at this point," said Renteria. "Would I have liked to have had it run a little cleaner for him? Absolutely. I think he does too. It was just a game that didn't work out the way he wanted to." Veras would likely need a few more bad appearances before a change is considered at closer, though we figure Pedro Strop will get another chance before the year is out.
