CHICAGO — For the first time in a month
, the Chicago Cubs will play after an off-day as they head into the stretch run of what they hope leads to their third straight National League Central Division title.With their magic number at eight to clinch, the Cubs begin a three-game series against their crosstown rival Chicago White Sox on Friday fresh off a difficult slate during which they played 29 games in 30 days. Over that time, the Cubs won 18 of the 29 games and will return to action after catching their breath Thursday. They will attempt to use this weekend’s three-game set at Guaranteed Rate Field to hold off the second-place Milwaukee Brewers.As much as his team may be fatigued, manager Joe Maddon liked how the Cubs closed off the long string of games. Despite a 9-0 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday, the Cubs enter Friday’s game having won five of their last seven games, which closed out a successful stretch that Maddon was pleased with overall.Article continues below ...“That’s a pretty good stretch right there,” Maddon told reporters Wednesday, according to the Chicago Tribune. “What was it? Eighteen and 11 during that stretch, something like that? Sign me up … We’ll take that every day of the week.“I’m really pleased and happy and proud how the guys have handled this.”Jose Quintana will start for the Cubs on Friday as he faces his former team. Quintana (13-10, 3.95 ERA) had gone five starts without a loss before he suffered a setback in his last outing, when he allowed two runs over five innings against the Cincinnati Reds and struck out seven. Quintana
, who spent 5 1/2 seasons with the White Sox before joining the Cubs at midseason last year, will start against the White Sox for the first time.The White Sox will face the Cubs following an extra-inning 5-4 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday. That snapped a three-game losing streak as Matt Davidson delivered a 10th-inning RBI single. The White Sox dropped two of three games against the Cubs in May, but with some success this weekend, the White Sox could provide some assistance to the Brewers in their attempt to chase down the Cubs.The White Sox could get first baseman Jose Abreu back after he missed the three-game series against the Indians when he was hospitalized with an ingrown hair infection in his right thigh. Abreu has also been sidelined recently for three weeks following testicular torsion surgery. Manager Rick Renteria didn’t rule Abreu out against the Cubs.“Been a tough year (for Abreu),” Renteria told reporters this week. “He’s been dealing with it as best as he possibly can.”Reynaldo Lopez will start the series for the White Sox. Lopez (6-9, 4.05 ERA) has won two of his previous four starts, including in his most recent outing when he threw seven scoreless innings against the Baltimore Orioles. Lopez has surrendered only one earned run in three September starts and will look to keep rolling Friday against the Cubs, who he will face for the first time in his career. Renteria has been impressed with Lopez as he winds down his first full big-league season, which has included 175 2/3 innings. He is 2-0 with a 2.85 ERA over his last nine starts.“He’s showing you he’s got endurance, strength (and) he’s gaining understanding of the situation, how to work and manage the situations
, which is really big,” Renteria told reporters after Lopez’s last start. “It speaks a lot for him because he continues to work and grind and learn.” The Atlanta Braves never reached terms with 2018 No. 8 draft overall pick Carter Stewartand were reportedly expecting to receive the No. 9 overall pick in 2019 as compensation, while Stewart would re-enter the draft pool next year.But according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic,Stewart is attempting to become a free agent, and "the Major League Baseball Players' Association filed a grievance on behalf of Stewart, saying the Braves did not make him the financial offer necessary for them to receive the compensation pick, according to major league sources."According to Rosenthal, "some involved with the case view him as a long shot to prevail in the dispute," with his hearing set to continue at a later date.He added, "To secure a compensation pick, a team must offer a player 40 percent of his assigned slot value. Baseball set the value of the No. 8 pick at $4
,980,700, meaning the Braves' final offer to Stewart had to be a minimum of $1,992,280."The Braves reportedly planned to sign Stewart below his slotted value in order to sign pitcherZack Hess, whom they drafted in the 34th round, to a contract higher than his allotted slot. But after discovering aligament issue in his right wrist, the Braves chose against signing Stewart, lost the money allotted to his draft slot and were also unable to sign Hess.Stewart, 18, was considered one of the top arms in the 2018 draft
, withManny Randhawaof comparing the 6'6", 200-pounder to Rick Porcello and writing the following scouting report on the young pitcher:"He has been as lights out as any prep arm in the country, coming out of the gate throwing up to 98 mph. The right-hander touches 96-97 mph in just about every start and easily sits at 92-94 mph. He has one of the best breaking balls in the class, a power curve that is now a mid-80s hammer. While Stewart's changeup is behind right now鈥攁nd he occasionally slows his arm down鈥攈e has feel for it and it should be a solid pitch in the future."If Stewart isn't awarded free agency, the Braves will keep their No. 9 compensatory pick. But if Stewart is awarded free agency, he'll be free to sign with any team, likely creating a market for himself that would exceed the slotted contract he would receive in next year's draft.It's unclear if Stewart will return to Mississippi State or attend a junior college if he isn't awarded free agency.
