    • Bote could be the Cubs' primary second baseman this season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Bote has been a solid utility player for the Cubs the past few seasons, but he could have a more regular role in 2021 with Jason Kipnis now in Atlanta and Nico Hoerner struggling last year with a .571 OPS. Bote posted a .711 OPS in 2020, and while he and Hoerner should jockey for time at the keystone into the start of the regular season, the former could take the lead role if he maintains an edge at the plate.

    • Bote (undisclosed) will start at second base and will bat seventh Sunday against the White Sox. Manager David Ross said Friday that Bote recently experienced a flareup of a minor injury he had been nursing, but the issue didn't prevent the 27-year-old from coming off the bench to pick up two at-bats in Saturday's 9-5 loss. Now that he's checking back into the lineup for the regular-season finale, Bote's health won't be in any question heading into the postseason.

    • Manager David Ross said Friday that Bote had a flare-up of a minor injury he's been dealing with, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Ross didn't give specifics as to the nature of the injury that Bote is dealing with, but the team called up Patrick Wisdom to serve in a depth role in the infield. With Kris Bryant (oblique) also sidelined, Nico Hoerner and Wisdom could see increased time at third base if Bote misses additional time.

    • Bote went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Sunday against the Brewers. Bote drew another start at third base with Kris Bryant (wrist) still receiving treatment. He took advantage of the opportunity, slugging a three-run home run off J.P. Feyereisen for his sixth long ball of the campaign. Despite the productive performance, Bote is hitting .204/.314/.417 across 121 plate appearances to this point in the campaign.
