Michael Rucker designated for assignment by Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have designated reliever Michael Rucker for assignment.

Fantasy Impact

The move was made in order to clear a 40-man roster spot for reliever Hector Neris, whose deal became official on Thursday. Rucker tossed a 4.91 ERA in 35 games with the Cubs in 2023 but also worked to a 1.69 ERA in 13 outings (two starts) at Triple-A, as well.

Michael Rucker picks up a win Tuesday

Michael Rucker pitched two innings, allowing no hits or runs, and registering one strikeout Tuesday. He earned his third win of the season in game one of a doubleheader.

Fantasy Impact

Rucker has a 4.10 ERA, .239 OBA, and a 7.71 K/9 ratio in 26 appearances this season. The 28-year-old has pitched well as of late, but does not get enough hold or save chances to be fantasy viable.

Michael Rucker tallies the win Friday

Michael Rucker pitched one inning, allowing no hits, and no runs and tallied his second win of the season over the Brewers Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Rucker has a 4.46 ERA, .256 OBA, and a 2.58 K/BB ratio in 34 1/3 innings in 24 games this season. Despite picking up two wins in his last seven games, the 28-year-old is not put in enough high leverage situations to be fantasy viable.
