    In thick of tight division race, Cubs add catcher Rene Rivera: 'You can't have enough experience'

    If this was 2016, the Cubs might not have bothered to acquire Rene Rivera. But this isn’t 2016. The Cubs have a vastly different catching situation than they did a year ago. But even more importantly, they’ve been unable to build any sort of lead in a crowded National League Central race. Rivera, claimed off waivers from the New York Mets on Saturday morning, almost surely won’t end up being the guy who fuels the Cubs’ pulling away from the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. But with Willson Contreras on the disabled list, Miguel Montero on the Toronto Blue Jays, Alex Avila not even a month into his Cubs tenure and Victor Caratini just 17 games into his big league career, adding an extra

    Kansas City Royals: Nerve issue lands pitcher Neftali Feliz on DL

    The Kansas City Royals placed right-handed pitcher Neftali Feliz on the disabled list on Saturday because of right ulnar nerve palsy. His DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 14, making him eligible to return on Aug. 24. In a corresponding move, the Royals recalled left-handed pitcher Eric Skoglund from Triple-A Omaha before Saturday's game against the Cleveland Indians. Feliz signed a one-year, $5.35 million deal with the Milwaukee Brewers in the offseason, but was released on June 19 after he went 1-5 with a 6.00 ERA, 21 strikeouts and 15 walks in 27 innings, while allowing eight home runs. The Royals signed him on June 22, and he is 1-0 with a 4.74 ERA for Kansas City. He last pitched on Aug. 13,

    Brewers' Chase Anderson: Activated prior to Sunday's start

    Anderson (oblique) was officially activated from the DL prior to Sunday's start against the Rockies. We knew he would start Sunday, so this move is just a formality. It's not an ideal first game back, as Anderson will have to navigate the brutal pitching environment in Coors Field. His two rehab starts came in Colorado Springs, so he is accustomed to the thin air. He only threw 67 pitches in his last rehab start, so he may not be permitted to go very deep into this start. Anderson pitched like a frontline starter prior to getting hurt, posting a 2.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 85 strikeouts in 90.1 innings. Even so, it is probably best to look for a better option in daily leagues, given all of the other
