Dropping off: Charlie Tilson (111th), Alex Presley (125th), Andre Ethier (126th), Jeremy Hazelbaker (127th), Ryan Rua (133rd). Franklin Gutierrez (136th), Desmond Jennings (139th)

 

  • Kyle Schwarber, who hit .333 with four homers in his first nine games for Triple-A Iowa, should be back with the Cubs any day now. With Jason Heyward also returning Tuesday, there’s not going to be nearly as many outfield at-bats available for Jon Jay and Albert Almora. Ben Zobrist might also begin to lose out, what with Ian Happ likely to see more starts at second base.

 

  • Raimel Tapia was a tough call. He’s a definite mixed leaguer while playing regularly, but it’s hard to say how much he would have continued to play if Ian Desmond (calf) hadn’t gone on the disabled list at the same time that Carlos Gonzalez returned from it. It’s also unclear how much time Desmond will miss; the injury was originally called a cramp, only to be upgraded to a strain the next day. Then the Rockies also have Gerardo Parra set to return and claim some outfield time. I like Tapia as a top-60 OF for the rest of this month, but I’m not sure he’ll get the at-bats to contribute in August and September.

 

  • Playing time is also about to become an issue in St. Louis. It sounded like Dexter Fowler (heel) might return as soon as Wednesday, but now he appears to be out through the All-Star break. One he returns, there will only be two outfield spots open each day for Stephen Piscotty, Tommy Pham and Randal Grichuk. A week ago, I thought those three might split time rather evenly. Grichuk, though, hasn’t been able to keep it going after homering in his first two games back from the minors. It doesn’t bode well for him. I have Pham ranked 68th, since he is injury-prone and there’s still the potential for those playing-time issues. For the short term, though, I’d have him in the top 50.
