Cubs' Matt Szczur: Fighting for bench spot this spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Szczur's chances of making the Cubs roster could depend on whether the team wants an extra outfielder or infielder, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

The outfield is already pretty crowded in Chicago, with Albert Almora, Jon Jay, Jason Heyward and Kyle Schwarber locked in and Ben Zobrist able to play both second base and the outfield. Szczur is out of options, so if the Cubs try to send him down, he will have to pass through waivers.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Szczur is in Sunday's lineup versus Colorado.

Szczur was brought in after Chicago scratched Jorge Soler from the lineup with leg soreness. Szczur will start in left field and be batting eighth as the Cubs conclude their series against the Rockies.

Cubs' Matt Szczur: Out of lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Cubs' Matt Szczur: Blasts two-run homer in Friday victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
