News: Lake is not in the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's double-header against the Yankees, ESPN Chicago's Jesse Rogers reports. Impact: Ryan Sweeney, Emilio Bonifacio and Ryan Kalish will make up the Cubs outfield for the second game, as Lake will sit for half of the double-header. He has all the raw tools in the world, but has yet to be given a steady, everyday job in the team's outfield, which slightly diminishes his fantasy value for the present.(RotoWire, )

News: Lake is not in the lineup Friday against the Cardinals. Impact: Lake will be replaced by Ryan Kalish in left field, in a somewhat odd Cubs lineup that will also feature Ryan Sweeney in center. An injury has not been reported, so chalk up this one to a day of rest.(RotoWire, )

News: Lake drove in his first two runs of the season Wednesday, but struck out once more, giving him nine strikeouts in 22 at-bats. Impact: Lake hit a solo shot off Wandy Rodriguez in the fifth inning, but his 2:9 BB:K is a concern. He's generally been poor in this area throughout his professional career, and it's doubtful that Lake can sustain any success unless he improves his plate discipline dramatically.(RotoWire, )

News: Lake is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Pirates. Impact: The Cubs will go with the lefty-hitting Ryan Kalish in left field Wednesday, with righty Charlie Morton on the mound for the Pirates. It's uncertain if manager Rick Renteria will choose to employ a platoon all season with Lake and Kalish, but it's certainly something that bears watching.(RotoWire, )
