Anthony Rizzo will look to rebound from a disappointing 2012 that saw him hit .233 with 23 homers.

Jake Arrieta, SP -- Arrieta pitched quite well after a midseason trade sent him to the Cubs from the Orioles. In nine starts with the big league club, he went 4-2 with a 3.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 51.2 innings. He never caught on in Baltimore, but the National League sure seemed to agree with him last season. He probably won't be a factor in mixed leagues, but should be universally owned in NL-only leagues.
