  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Lands on IL

    The Cubs placed Wisdom (wrist) on the injured list Wednesday without a designation, an indication that he's been deactivated from reasons related to COVID-19, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Wisdom had missed the Cubs' last two games with a sore right wrist, but that doesn't seem to be the reason behind his shutdown. Since the Cubs selected Trent Giambrone's contract from Triple-A Iowa, Wisdom was most likely placed on the COVID-19-related IL, which would open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Giambrone. While Wisdom could have an outside chance to be reinstated at some point before the Cubs' final four games of the campaign if his placement on the IL was precautionary rather than the result of a positive test, his 2021 campaign is most likely over. The 30-year-old should earn some National League Rookie of the Year votes after he hit .231 with 28 home runs, 61 RBI, 54 runs and four stolen bases across 374 plate appearances for Chicago.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Scratched with wrist soreness

    Wisdom was scratched from Sunday's lineup versus the Cardinals due to right wrist soreness.

    Wisdom was slated to start at third base but was pulled from the lineup due to the wrist issue. It's unclear if he'll be available off the bench, and he'll have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially missing additional time. Matt Duffy was set to sit Sunday but will instead start at the hot corner.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Launches home run

    Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a loss in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Wisdom went hitless in the first game of Friday' twin bill but connected on a two-strike fastball in the first inning of the second game, sending it 453 feet to center field. The long ball was his 28th of the year as he's making a late push for the National League Rookie of the Year award. The 29-year-old is slashing .233/.304/.522 with 28 home runs, 61 RBI, 54 runs scored, four steals and 30:151 BB:K over 369 plate appearances. His power is clear as day, although his 40.9 strikeout rate is limiting his potential at the plate.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Drives in two, hit by two pitches

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a stolen base Tuesday in the Cubs' 9-5 loss to the Twins. He was also struck by two pitches.

    Wisdom's sky-high strikeout rate (40.3 percent) and modest walk rate (8.2 percent) have limited him to an unimpressive .308 on-base percentage on the season, but he did his part to raise that mark by reaching base three times. He'll remain in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, batting third and starting at third base.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Sets new team rookie homer record

    Wisdom went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.

    It was a game of highs and lows for Wisdom, as the 30-year-old struck out four times, but he also connected for his 27th home run of the season with two runners on in the eighth inning. In doing so, Wisdom set a new team rookie home-run record, surpassing the 26 long balls hit by Kris Bryant back in 2015. Considering Wisdom came into the year with four career home runs in 43 games at the MLB level, the power surge has been quite the pleasant surprise.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Ties team rookie homer record

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.

    Wisdom hadn't gone deep yet this month but snapped that streak Tuesday with his 26th home run of the season. In doing so, the 30-year-old tied Kris Bryant's team rookie record set in 2015. Wisdom isn't your typical rookie after mostly toiling in the minors the past nine years, but he's made the most of his opportunity with the Cubs. He should continue to see regular playing time and has a shot to reach the 30-homer plateau, which seemed unthinkable before the season.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Flexes power once again

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in a 7-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday.

    Wisdom took AL Cy Young candidate Lance Lynn deep in the fourth and fifth innings. It was the second straight two-homer game for the slugger, making him the first rookie in Cubs history to accomplish that feat, per Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network. Wisdom has gone deep nine times in his past 16 contests and is up to 25 homers in 251 at-bats overall this season. He needs one more long ball to tie Kris Bryant's team rookie record set in 2015.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Launches pair of homers

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with two home runs, a walk, four RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 17-13 loss to the White Sox.

    On his 30th birthday, the third baseman rewarded himself with a pair of homers. Wisdom has gone yard five times in his last seven games. This is the second noticeable power binge for the third baseman, who is up to 23 long balls, 48 RBI, 44 runs scored and three stolen bases through 270 plate appearances. He's added a solid .255/.319/.563 slash line in a surprising breakout season.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Blasts big homer

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Game 1 of a doubleheader versus Colorado on Wednesday. He scored two runs and drew a walk while going 0-for-4 in the nightcap.

    Wisdom struck out four times overall in the twin bill, but his three-run shot in the fifth inning of Game 1 provided the margin of victory for the Cubs. The 29-year-old is in the midst of a breakout campaign, slashing .251/.313/.539 with 21 homers and 44 RBI over 79 games. His massive 39.2 percent strikeout rate is certainly problematic, but Wisdom has at least provided a jolt of power for a team that parted ways with three of its biggest bats in separate trades.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Slugs homer No. 20

    Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Royals.

    He broke up Kris Bubic's no-hit and shutout bids with one swing of the bat in the seventh inning. Wisdom has gone yard in back-to-back games to give him 20 homers on the season, but for the most part he's struggled to make contact in August, batting .203 (13-for-64) with a 3:29 BB:K through 18 games.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Hits solo home run

    Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.

    Wisdom returned to the lineup Friday after Wednesday's day off, and he put the Cubs on the board with his solo homer in the second inning. The 29-year-old now has 19 home runs in 2021 but has been in a slump recently, as he's hit just .167 with two homers, three RBI and 14 strikeouts across the last eight games.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Not starting Wednesday

    Wisdom isn't starting Wednesday against the Reds.

    Wisdom went just 1-for-8 with five strikeouts across the last two games, and he'll get a breather for the series finale. Matt Duffy will take over at the hot corner and bat fourth.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Getting Sunday off

    Wisdom is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Wisdom will take a seat for the series finale after he started each of the past three games at a different position (first base, third base and left field). Expect him to rotate among all three spots over the final month and a half of the season, though he should retain a near-everyday role while he continues to supply power. Wisdom owns an .870 OPS over 230 plate appearances on the campaign.
