Description: Cubs catcher John Baker stroked three hits in Friday night's win over Washington.
Insight: He finished with four RBI, the same number he had in his first 36 games. Despite Friday's performance, Baker (.186, 0 HR, 8 RBI) isn't a strong fantasy option.

Description: Cubs C John Baker was expected to miss Friday's game against Miami after taking a foul ball off his throat Wednesday, but he's in the starting lineup - catching and batting eighth.
Insight: With Welington Castillo already on the disabled list, the Cubs would be down to just Eli Whiteside and disaster catcher Luis Valbuena. Neither Baker or Whiteside have any fantasy value.
