Wisdom went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Mets. The 29-year-old continues to demonstrate that the power he showed in the minors can play in the majors as well. Wisdom has gone yard nine times in 20 games since being called up in late May, although his overall .333/.390/.870 slash line is unsustainable, considering his 35.6 percent strikeout rate and .375 BABIP.
Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 7-1 win over the Padres on Tuesday. Wisdom welcomed San Diego reliever Miguel Diaz to the game in the sixth with a two-run home run to extend Chicago's lead to 5-0. The long ball has become a regular occurrence for the late-blooming third baseman, who now has eight on the season and four in his past four games. Even when he cools off, look for Wisdom to remain in the lineup as Chicago is 9-5 in the 14 games Wisdom has appeared since being recalled May 25.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Giants. Wisdom has been on some kind of roll since getting recalled from Triple-A Iowa on May 25, as he now has seven home runs in just 13 games. To put that in perspective, the 29-year-old came into the year with just four career MLB home runs in 43 games. Wisdom will cool down at some point, but he's worth a look from fantasy managers while he's playing regularly and performing this well.
Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run Saturday in a loss to the Giants. Wisdom capitalized on an inning-opening error in the second frame, crushing a 418-foot shot to center to give Chicago a 2-0 lead. He struck out in his other two at-bats, highlighting the all-or-nothing nature of his plate appearances this season. Wisdom has maintained a .400 average despite striking out 11 times in 30 at-bats, and five of his 12 hits have left the yard.
Wisdom isn't starting Thursday's game against the Giants. Wisdom had started each of the last four games and went 7-for-15 with three home runs, four RBI and five strikeouts during that time. Sergio Alcantara will start at third base and bat seventh.
