Zagunis was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. He received just seven at-bats in May, and will be sent to Triple-A in order to get more regular playing time. Zagunis would likely need a couple injuries on the big-league roster in order to profile as more than just a pinch hitter the next time he comes up to the majors.
Zagunis remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game againt the Phillies. Zagunis last started April 26 and has only logged seven at-bats since that time. He could be at risk of a demotion to Triple-A Iowa once Ben Zobrist (personal) rejoins the active roster.
Zagunis is starting in right field and batting ninth in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks. Zagunis will be making his first start since April 12, as the Cubs sit outfield regulars Jason Heyward and Kyle Schwarber with Arizona lefty Robbie Ray on the mound. Zagunis is slashing .333/.333/.476 with four RBI in just 21 at-bats so far this season.
Zagunis remains out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks. Zagunis hasn't started since April 12 and has logged just 20 plate appearances all season as the Cubs' fifth outfielder. The 26-year-old may be at risk of losing his spot on the active roster when the Cubs activate Jon Lester (hamstring) from the 10-day injured list or when they reinstate Addison Russell (suspension).
Zagunis is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers. Zagunis drew the start in the season opener Thursday against lefty starter Mike Minor but will make way for Kyle Schwarber in this one. The Cubs may use Zagunis on occasion against southpaws and sit Schwarber, though Zagunis likely won't draw enough playing time to make a lot of noise on the fantasy front.
