  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Lands on 60-day IL

    Ortega (finger) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Ortega was ruled out for the rest of the season after he was diagnosed with a fractured left ring finger Tuesday, so the move to the 60-day IL was only a matter of time. The 31-year-old closes out 2022 with a .241/.331/.358 slash line, seven home runs, 35 RBI, 35 runs and 12 stolen bases in 370 plate appearances.

The 31-year-old singled in his lone plate appearance Tuesday before he suffered the injury on a bunt attempt. Ortega will miss the final few weeks of the season and will finish the campaign with a .241/.331/.358 slash line, seven home runs, 35 RBI and 12 stolen bases in 118 games.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Productive in Monday's win

    Ortega went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, two total RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Mets. Ortega was replaced by pinch hitter Michael Hermosillo in the ninth inning, but the former had already done his damage. His seventh home run of the season made it 1-0 in the second inning, and the outfielder added an RBI single in the fourth. Ortega still routinely sits against southpaws, though he's capable of big stat lines when he plays against righties.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Sits against lefty

    Ortega is not in the lineup for Friday's game in St. Louis. Ortega currently boasts a .671 OPS in 2022, which drops to .496 against lefties, so seeing him on the bench against lefty Jordan Montgomery isn't much of a surprise. Nelson Velazquez will take over for Ortega in center field.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Steals two bases Monday

    Ortega went 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Monday's 11-inning loss to the Blue Jays. He also stole two bases. Ortega made his presence known each time he reached base, as he recorded his 10th and 11th steals of the season in 18 attempts. The outfielder tallied a career-high 12 stolen bases during a solid 2021 campaign in which he also recorded a career-best 11 home runs to go with an .823 OPS. His power is down a bit this year with just six long balls so far and a .672 OPS, though at least Ortega is still running plenty when he gets on.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Multi-hit effort in win

    Ortega went 2-for-3 in Wednesday's 7-1 victory over the Cardinals. Ortega recorded two hits Wednesday, his first multi-hit game since Aug. 4. After slashing .291/.360/.463 in 2021, Ortega has failed to find his groove, as he now now owns a 233/.326/.353 line on the campaign. His poorer performance this season has cost him at-bats versus left-handed pitching as well as his spot atop the Cubs' lineup. He will be tough to roster in most formats moving forward.

Although right-hander Josiah Gray is starting for the Nationals on Monday, Ortega will retreat to the bench for the third time in the last four games, and he looks like he'll have to settle for a part-time role moving forward. Christopher Morel is taking over in center field while Zach McKinstry starts at third base.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Nabs eighth steal

    Ortega went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-2 win over the Pirates. The 31-year-old has three hits in the last two games, including a solo homer Monday, as he shows small signs of emerging from a deep slump. Ortega has only eight hits in total in July, slashing .154/.262/.269 through 19 games on the month, and what little fantasy value he's supplied has come from his legs as he's stolen three of his eight bags on the year.

  • Cubs' Rafael Ortega: Goes deep in win

    Ortega went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 3-2 win over the Pirates. He was also caught stealing. Ortega led off in this one and managed his fifth home run of the season in the third inning. The left-handed hitting outfielder is still sitting regularly against southpaws, with the likes of Christopher Morel and Nelson Velazquez gobbling up more starts on those occasions. Ortega can still deliver some fantasy value versus righties, however, as he has an .802 OPS against them since 2020.
