  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Hits 21st home run Monday

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-2 loss to the Brewers.

    Appearing in a game for just the fourth time in the last two weeks, Wisdom managed his 21st home run of the season. His career high is 28, though he seems unlikely to reach that number in his smaller role, which has been the result of Jeimer Candelario joining the team at the trade deadline. Wisdom can still provide some pop, but his fantasy appeal is diminished as a bench player.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Blasts 20th homer in loss

    Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 11-4 loss against Toronto.

    Sunday's game was a microcosm of Wisdom's season, as he paired his 20th home run with three more strikeouts to raise his season total to 99 in 224 at-bats. Wisdom's role has diminished since the trade deadline acquisition of Jeimer Candelario having now started just four games since Aug. 1. Wisdom's empty power production is best served in the part-time role in which the Cubs currently have him placed.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Hits 16th home run

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

    Wisdom batted ninth but still managed to provide some offense for the Cubs. His lineup placement is likely due to his weak .194 batting average. Wisdom has struggled even more since the beginning of June, going just 5-for-41 (.122) with 22 strikeouts across 16 games. He did miss some time with a wrist sprain, so perhaps he's still trying to find his groove, though Wisdom did bat only .207 last season and isn't known for maintaining a high average.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Out of lineup Sunday

    Wisdom is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox.

    Wisdom smacked a home run Saturday, his 15th of the year, but he'll give way to Miles Mastrobuoni on Sunday. Wisdom should still start at the hot corner most days moving forward, especially with Nick Madrigal (hamstring) on the injured list.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Sitting out Friday

    Wisdom is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Red Sox, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Cubs will go with Miles Mastrobuoni at third base instead. Wisdom had started three of the last four games at the hot corner prior to the All-Star break, but his hold on the third base job seems pretty tenuous.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Activated from injured list

    The Cubs activated Wisdom (wrist) from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Wisdom is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Brewers, but he's recovered from the sprained right wrist that sent him to the IL in mid-June and could see semi-regular action at third base with Nick Madrigal (hamstring) needing an IL stint of his own.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Set for rehab assignment

    Wisdom (wrist) was cleared Wednesday to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Wisdom had been struggling mightily at the plate before he landed on the injured list June 17 due to a sprained right wrist, so the Cubs might ask him to remain with Iowa through the weekend in an effort to get his timing back. Nick Madrigal continues to draw the majority of playing time at third base for Chicago.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Lands on IL

    The Cubs placed Wisdom on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sprained right wrist, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Wisdom has been struggling at the plate recently, going just 2-for-24 since the beginning of June. Now, he will be shelved for at least 10 days as he nurses his right wrist. Justin Steele (forearm) was activated off the 15-day injured list Saturday and will replace Wisdom on the active roster.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: On bench again

    Wisdom is absent from the lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Pirates, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Wisdom has started just one of the last four games and that was at designated hitter, as it seems he might have lost the third base job to Nick Madrigal. The 31-year-old has just a .552 OPS along with a 43.3 percent strikeout rate since May 1.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Wisdom will be on the bench for Saturday's game against the Giants.

    Wisdom's game always involves plenty of power alongside huge strikeout concerns, but it's the latter which has been more prevalent recently. He hit .250 with 10 homers through the end of April despite a 33.3 percent strikeout rate, but things have gone significantly downhill since then. In 29 games since the start of May, he's homered four times while hitting .149 with a 43.0 percent strikeout rate. Nick Madrigal will take over at third base Saturday.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: On bench Wednesday

    Wisdom is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Angels.

    Miles Mastrobuoni will start at third base and bat ninth versus the Halos and right-hander Jaime Barria. Wisdom is slashing just .145/.245/.313 in 95 plate appearances since the beginning of May.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Out Saturday vs. Padres

    Wisdom is out of the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres.

    Wisdom went 0-for-4 in Friday's game against San Diego, and he is coming off a May where he posted just a .637 OPS in 68 at-bats. He'll get a day off against the Padres on Saturday with Miles Mastrobuoni starting at third base and hitting leadoff.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Goes deep twice

    Wisdom went 2-for-3 with a pair of home runs, a walk and five RBI in Sunday's 8-5 loss to the Reds.

    Wisdom drove in all five runs for the Cubs after hitting a home run in the second and then another in the eighth. Sunday was just his second multi-hit game this month and his first long ball since May 10. He had been held out of the lineup two of the previous three times the Cubs had faced a righty and will likely need to bring his strikeouts down before he can be considered as a regular fixture again. The 31-year-old is now slashing .225/.316/.556 with 14 homers, 28 RBI, 28 runs and a 19:65 BB:K over 172 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Sitting in series opener

    Wisdom is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays.

    Wisdom started at third base in both of the final two games of the Cubs' series with the Reds this past weekend, going 3-for-6 with a pair of home runs, five RBI, one walk and an additional run. The big finish to the week ended a 2-for-28 skid over the previous nine games, during which Wisdom struck out a whopping 18 times. Miles Mastrobuoni will get a look at the hot corner Monday, and though Wisdom still appears to be the Cubs' preferred option at the position, his tendency to run hot and cold at the plate likely won't give him much job security.
