    • Cubs' Matt Szczur: Out of lineup Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Szczur is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rockies. Szczur had started three consecutive games, going 3-for-14 in that time. He'll head to the bench Sunday, as Kris Bryant leaves his normal spot at third and moves to left field.

    • Cubs' Matt Szczur: Stays with active roster
      By RotoWire Staff

      Szczur has not played the last two games and has just 20 at-bats this month, but he stayed up with the Cubs when Dexter Fowler was activated Friday. Szczur has been a strong asset off the bench this season, but he's a luxury the Cubs may not be able to afford much longer, as both Jorge Soler and Chris Coghlan are nearing returns from injury, and Albert Almora - Friday's roster casualty - is waiting in the wings as well.

    • Szczur went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's 6-0 victory over the Pirates. The 26-year-old got things started on the right foot for the Cubs, smacking a two-run blast on Francisco Liriano's second pitch of the game. It was Szczur's first homer since April 29, and helped bring his season line to .333/.375/.533. With a lefty on the mound, the Cubs were able to work both Szczur and rookie Albert Almora into the lineup at left field and right field, respectively, with Jason Heyward taking a seat for the afternoon.

    • Cubs' Matt Szczur: Activated from DL on Saturday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Szczur (hamstring) will be activated from the DL on Saturday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Szczur has been on a rehab assignment at Double-A Tennessee, but he'll return to the Cubs on Saturday and will be available for the night's matchup with the Giants. It's unclear whether or not he'll play, but the Cubs could certainly use the extra outfield depth with Jason Heyward (hip) out. Neil Ramirez was designated for assignment Saturday to make room on the roster.
