Player Notes
Luis Valbuena hit a solo home run in the Cubs' 4-2 win over the Brewers on Monday.

Advice: The eighth inning solo shot was Valbuena's only hit of the game, as he finished 1-for-3. While Valbuena might just be treading water for the Cubs until Kris Bryant breaks out of the minors like an angry bear, the 28-year old third-baseman has put up a career year in 2014. It helps that the Cubs are bad enough to be able to give Valbuena 400+ ABs. He's slashing .245/.325/.440.
