    Eric Sogard: Parts ways with Cubs

    The Cubs released Eric Sogard on Wednesday.After going unclaimed off waivers when he was designated him for assignment last week, Sogard presumably wasn't keen on reporting to Triple-A Iowa, so the Cubs elected to grant him his release. The 34-year-old utility man slashed .249/.283/.314 across 180 plate appearances with the Cubs this season before being bumped off the 40-man roster.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: DFA'd by Cubs

    Eric Sogard was designated for assignment by the Chicago Cubs on Friday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.The veteran infielder has a .249/.283/.314 slash line through 180 plate appearances this season, so it's not a major surprise to see Chicago jettison him from the 40-man roster with Matt Duffy (back) returning from the injured list. Sogard posted an .810 OPS in 110 games in 2019, but he's unlikely to garner much interest on the waiver wire with a paltry .582 OPS in 121 contests over the past two years.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: Lands on IL

    The Chicago Cubs placed Eric Sogard on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left thumb contusion, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.The infielder will be sidelined until after the All-Star break with the thumb injury. It's unclear whether Sogard is headed toward a more extended absence. Though the 35-year-old has hit an unremarkable .250 in 160 at-bats this season, he's likely to stick with the Cubs due to his defensive versatility and, when things get ugly, mop-up pitching abilities.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: Two hits, stolen base Wednesday

    Eric Sogard went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.Making his fourth straight start, Sogard was productive in the 15-7 Chicago Cubs loss. Both Anthony Rizzo (back) and Kris Bryant (side) were out of the lineup Wednesday and are considered day-to-day with their injuries. Sogard should return to a bench role soon, but he has some limited fantasy value while the two Chicago stars are out.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: Opportunities pick up

    Eric Sogard will start at third base and bat seventh Wednesday against the Brewers.Sogard will stick in the starting nine for the fourth straight contest, as he appears to be the beneficiary of both Anthony Rizzo (back) and Kris Bryant (side) being day-to-day with injuries. The Chicago Cubs are holding out hope that both players will be able to avoid the injured list, in which case Sogard would fade back into a utility role. Sergio Alcantara still appears to be ahead of Sogard in the pecking order for playing time at second base while Nico Hoerner (hamstring) and David Bote (shoulder) are on the shelf.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: Losing work to Alcantara

    Eric Sogard will return from a three-game absence from the lineup to start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Cardinals.Though Sogard is back in the starting nine for the series finale, his days as Chicago's primary second baseman may be over. The lefty-hitting Sogard was withheld from the lineup for each of the last three games, all of which came against right-handed starting pitchers. Sergio Alcantara appears to have leapfrogged Sogard on the depth chart, but there will be room in the lineup for both players in the middle infield Sunday after Javier Baez (thumb) was scratched from the lineup.

    Cubs' Eric Sogard: Rests Wednesday

    Eric Sogard is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.Thanks to injuries to fellow infielders Nico Hoerner (hamstring), David Bote (shoulder) and Matt Duffy (back), Sogard appears to have seized hold of a regular role at second base. Though the Padres will bring a right-hander (Yu Darvish) to the hill for the series finale, the lefty-hitting Sogard will head to the bench in what most likely amounts to a maintenance day. Ian Happ will relieve Sogard at the keystone, ending a streak of four straight starts at the position.
