  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Sitting Wednesday

    Wisdom is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Resting Saturday

    Wisdom is not in the lineup Saturday against Miami.

    Wisdom's three strikeouts in Friday's series opener raised his strikeout rate on the season to 33.4 percent, but he's shown enough power to overcome his contact issues. Thanks to a 15.3 percent barrel rate, he owns a .222/.318/.452 slash line, good for a 114 wRC+. Zach McKinstry starts at third base in his absence.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Reaches 20 home runs

    Wisdom went 1-for-5 with two walks, a home run, two RBI and two runs scored across both games of Thursday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Wisdom did most of his damage in the second game, when he launched his 20th home run of the season and scored twice. The 30-year-old has now reached the 20-homer plateau in consecutive seasons after coming into last year with just four career long balls at the MLB level. He hit 28 home runs in 2021 and has a decent chance to surpass that in 2022 if he stays healthy.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Homers in second consecutive game

    Wisdom went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, a double, a walk and two total runs scored in Friday's 4-2 win over the Giants.

    Wisdom opened the scoring with a solo shot in the fifth inning, and he added another run in the ninth after hitting a ground-rule double. This was the third baseman's first multi-hit effort since July 5, and he's homered in consecutive games. For the season, he's slashing .226/.321/.460 with 19 long balls, 50 RBI, 51 runs scored, six stolen bases and a career-high 22 doubles in 95 contests.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Accounts for offense in loss

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Giants.

    The Cubs didn't record a hit until the seventh inning, and Wisdom followed that up with a two-run homer off Giants starter Alex Wood. Wisdom's hit safely in six of his last eight games, but he's gone 6-for-27 (.222) in that span with no multi-hit efforts. The third baseman is slashing .222/.317/.446 with 18 homers, 49 RBI, 49 runs scored and six stolen bases in 94 contests this year.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Collects steal in loss

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Dodgers.

    Wisdom has six stolen bases this year, and four of them have come in his last 10 games. The 30-year-old isn't much of a speedster -- the most steals he's had in a year was 13 between Triple-A Memphis and the Cardinals in 2018. Still, it's an added bonus for his fantasy managers. Wisdom's added 17 home runs, 45 RBI, 46 runs scored and 17 doubles despite a .231 batting average through 81 contests as a near-everyday presence in the Cubs' lineup this year.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Goes deep Sunday

    Wisdom went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Red Sox.

    Wisdom's solo home run, his 17th of the season, tied the game at 2-2 in the eighth inning, but Boston scored twice in the top of the 11th to get the win. The 17 long balls are the most on the team, with Willson Contreras second with 13 home runs. Wisdom is hitting only .232 this season, but his power production is giving him fantasy value.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Records steal in win

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Red Sox.

    Wisdom has four steals this season, and half of them have come in the last three games. He scored the opening run in the second inning Saturday and knocked in the Cubs' third and final run in the eighth for an all-around productive showing. The 30-year-old is up to a .233/.319/.470 slash line with 16 home runs, 44 RBI and 42 runs scored through 301 plate appearances. Wisdom has a 34.6 percent strikeout rate this year, though he's partially offset it with a 10.0 percent walk rate that's allowed him to get on base steadily.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Drives in six runs Thursday

    Wisdom went 3-for-6 with a pair of home runs, six RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 15-7 rout of the Reds.

    Wisdom had a good start to the contest, notching an RBI and a stolen base in the first inning. Things got much better for the big third baseman, as he swatted a grand slam in the second frame and a solo homer in the sixth en route to a career-high six RBI. Wisdom entered the contest with just three homers and 11 RBI through 25 games in June, so his big game padded those stats considerably on the final day of the month. He leads Chicago with 16 homers and 43 RBI on the season.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Reaches twice in loss

    Wisdom went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Saturday's 5-3 loss to the Cardinals.

    Wisdom didn't go deep, though he still managed to have a decent game. The walk is encouraging, but he also struck out twice, and he's now sitting with a 34.8 percent strikeout rate for the season. That will continue to limit Wisdom's ability to consistently reach base, so he's typically dependent on home runs to fuel his fantasy value. The third baseman does at least lead the team with 14 long balls this year.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Homers again Wednesday

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.

    Wisdom also struck out twice, a reminder of his feast-or-famine profile, but fantasy managers won't complain too much. The third baseman now has home runs in his last two games, giving him a team-high 14 for the season. Wisdom's four RBI also pushed him to 36 for the season, putting him two ahead of Ian Happ for the team lead.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Delivers offense Tuesday

    Wisdom went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

    The Cubs had just six hits as a team and fell 7-1, but Wisdom still delivered a nice stat line. His .222 batting average leaves plenty to be desired in that category, but the third baseman does now lead the squad with 13 home runs, one ahead of Willson Contreras. Wisdom is also second on the team with 32 RBI, so he's provided his share of fantasy value despite not being a great contact hitter.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Returns to lineup Sunday

    Wisdom is starting at third base and batting fifth in Sunday's game against Atlanta.

    Wisdom got his first off day in about a month Saturday, but he'll return to the hot corner Sunday. The 30-year-old has been a bit all or nothing this season, as he has 12 home runs but is also batting just .223 with a 35 percent strikeout rate.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Not starting Saturday

    Wisdom isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Wisdom started every game over the last month but will get a breather after he went 4-for-16 with a walk and five strikeouts over the last five games. Jonathan Villar is starting at third base while Andrelton Simmons starts at the keystone.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Blasts another home run

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Wisdom was a bright spot in a 14-5 loss, launching a three-run home run in the first inning, then driving home another run on a single in the seventh. The third baseman is up to 12 home runs and 31 RBI through 49 games. He has a decent chance of surpassing his career highs of 28 homers and 61 RBI, both of which he recorded during his breakout 2021 campaign.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Tallies homer, stolen base Tuesday

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

    The home run isn't much of a surprise, as Wisdom now has 11 this season through 46 games. However, the stolen base was just the second of the year for the third baseman, though they've both come in the past week. Speed isn't likely to become a huge part of Wisdom's game anytime soon, but even modest contributions there help to enhance his overall fantasy profile.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Tallies two hits, stolen base

    Wisdom went 2-for-5 with a stolen base and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Reds.

    Despite not going deep for the first time in five contests, Wisdom still had a good night at the plate and on the bases. His stolen base in the second inning was his first of the season. Wisdom had just four steals in five attempts last year, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect too much more in that category. They should expect more home runs, however, as Wisdom leads the team with 10 long balls across 39 games so far.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Homers in fourth straight game

    Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Monday's win over the Reds.

    That's now four straight games with home runs for Wisdom and 10 total long balls on the season across 38 contests. He continues to be an all-or-nothing type player, as he also struck out two more times Monday, giving him 58 strikeouts through 144 plate appearances this season. Fantasy managers may have to simply accept a low batting average with Wisdom, though he now has 38 homers in 144 games with the Cubs dating back to last year, so he's certainly delivered plenty of value as well.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Goes deep again Sunday

    Wisdom went 2-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

    Wisdom hit a game-tying home run against Arizona reliever Ian Kennedy in the eighth inning. It was his third home run in as many days and fourth over the last seven games, giving him a total of nine long balls for the season. Wisdom may not hit for a great average anytime soon, as he's batting just .219 after hitting .231 last year, but the power looks real. The third baseman popped 28 home runs in just 106 games last season and could be on pace to reach 30 homers for the first time in his career this year.
