Description: Chicago outfielder Junior Lake exited Thursday's game after running into the center field fence. SOURCE: Mark Zuckerman, Comcast Sportsnet Washington
Insight: Nate Schierholtz (.201, 3 HR, 27 RBI) replaced him before he got to see an at bat. Lake (.239, 9 HR, 25 RBI) appeared to injure his leg but we should know more on his status after the game.

Description: Cubs outfielder Junior Lake hit two solo home runs Saturday against the Marlins.
Insight: Lake has eight homers and six steals, so he has some fantasy value, but a .244 average, 21 runs, 23 RBI and a .727 OPS mean mixed league owners don't have much use for him.
 
Hot5/25/2014 9:09:00 PM
Description: Cubs outfielder Junior Lake has hit four homers in May.
Insight: Lake has a pitiful 51/7 K/BB, but he's posted six homers, five steals and a .786 OPS this season and has NL-only value.
 
Hot5/15/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Cubs outfielder Junior Lake is a career 5-for-8 (.625) with a 1.792 OPS against Cardinals Michael Wacha.
Insight: Lake has been swinging a hot bat over the past 12 games, batting .314 with a pair of homers, 10 RBI and an .896 OPS. He's worth a flier on Thursday.
 
3/23/2014 8:15:00 PM
Description: Cubs outfielder Junior Lake crushed three homers Sunday in a win against Oakland.
Insight: Before today, Lake had gone 35 spring training at bats without a homer. Overall, he's hitting .250 this spring with nine RBI. We have Lake down for 11 HR, 46 RBI and 19 SB in our latest 2014 fantasy projections.

Hot8/3/2013 3:10:00 PM
Description: Cubs rookie Junior Lake is batting .333 over his last 14 games with four homers and seven RBI.
Insight: The four homers were as many as he hit in 40 minor league games this season. The prospect is a third baseman by trade, but he has played either left or center field in every game so far.He'll bat leadoff for the second time this season.
 
7/30/2013 9:00:00 PM
Description: Cubs rookie Junior Lake has gone 2-for-21 since starting out 15-for-31 in his first seven major league games.
Insight: The prospect is a third baseman by trade but he has played either left or center field in his 12 games so far. The 23-year-old batted .295 with four home runs, a 33/10 K/BB and 14 steals in 156 at-bats with Triple-A Iowa this season. He shouldn't be owned outside of NL-only formats.
