  • Hoerner is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest with the Red Sox. Hoerner will get a day off after he went 7-for-13 with a double, two RBI and two runs during a three-game series against the Reds. He currently owns an eight-game hit streak, raising his average from .271 to .310 over that stretch. Andrelton Simmons will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Friday's series opener.

  • Hoerner went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Reds. All three hits were singles, and Hoerner failed to score any runs or record any RBI. Still, his batting average crept over the .300 mark, as he's now hitting a robust .304. The shortstop is more of a contact hitter at this point, and the 28-46 Cubs don't have a great lineup around him. That limits Hoerner's fantasy value, but he should remain a decent asset due to his regular playing time and ability to rack up hits.

  • Hoerner went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals. Hoerner opened the scoring with a long ball off Cardinals starter Andre Pallante in the second inning, and that was ultimately all the Cubs needed. This continued a solid June for Hoerner, who is hitting .292 (21-for-72), though he hadn't homered since May 26. The infielder has a .286/.320/.411 slash line with four homers, 22 RBI, 19 runs scored, six stolen bases, six doubles and three triples across 56 contests overall.

  • Hoerner went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Pirates. Hoerner's counting stats don't jump off the page, with just three home runs and 20 RBI this season, though he does consistently rack up hits. The 25-year-old is now batting .280 this year, which comes on the heels of batting .302 in 44 games with the Cubs in 2021. Hoerner has established himself as the team's top shortstop, and he has some fantasy value despite being limited in terms of power production.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Waiver Wire Targets
    By Chris Towers

    Hoerner arrived in the majors with a small amount of hype a few years back, but by the start of this season that had largely dissipated. Which means you might have missed that he's actually pretty good now. His .277/.304/.394 line doesn't jump off the page, but the underlying skill set suggests there's plenty of room for improvement. He's making a ton of contact with an 11.2% strikeout rate, and that's leading to a .314 expected batting average. Add in a .444 expected slugging percentage and 92nd percentile sprint speed and Hoerner could potentially be a viable contributor in batting average and steals without being a zero in power. Think Mariners-era Jean Segura, when he put up consecutive seasons with 10-plus homers, 20-plus steals, and a .300 average.
