  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Drives in three

    Alcantara went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI on Thursday against the Pirates.

    Alcantara took Miguel Yajure deep in the second inning for a two-run blast to record his fifth home run of the season. He's seen an uptick in playing time of late with Nico Hoerner (general soreness) sidelined and that should continue with Hoerner ruled out for the rest of the campaign. Across his last six games, Alcantara has collected six hits across 24 at-bats with four RBI and three runs scored.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Filling in for banged-up Hoerner

    Alcantara will start at shortstop and bat eighth Wednesday against the Pirates.

    With Nico Hoerner (general soreness) on the bench again, Alcantara will pick up his fifth consecutive start, including his fourth in a row at shortstop. Even if the Cubs elect to shut Hoerner down for the final four games of the season, Alcantara will likely be worthy of consideration only in NL-only leagues. Over 235 plate appearances on the campaign, Alcantara is hitting .203 with four home runs and three stolen bases.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Goes deep as pinch hitter

    Alcantara hit a two-run home run in his only at-bat in an 8-5 loss to the Cardinals in the first game of Friday's doubleheader.

    The 25-year-old put the Cubs on the board with a two-run blast off Cardinals reliever Alex Reyes in the sixth inning. Alcantara started the second game of the twin bill, but he went 0-for-3 and pitched one-third of an inning in a 12-4 blowout loss. The infielder hasn't shown much as a hitter lately either, going just 12-for-50 (.240) across 18 games in September. He owns a .200/.306/.321 slash line with four homers, 13 RBI, 27 runs scored and three stolen bases through 223 plate appearances this year.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Loses hold of starting role

    Alcantara remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins.

    On the bench for the third game in a row, Alcantara looks set to finish the season in a utility role after Nico Hoerner was activated from the injured list Sunday. While serving as the Cubs' primary shortstop since the beginning of August, Alcantara has been one of the majors' least productive everyday players with a .206/.328/.247 slash line over a stretch of 38 games.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Swipes bag in loss

    Alcantara went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and an RBI in Friday's 8-5 loss to the Brewers.

    Alcantara notched his only base hit of the night in the fourth when he drove in a run to give the Cubs a 3-0 lead. He would end up stealing his third base of the year before the inning ended. The 24-year-old shortstop has now logged a hit in four straight games and picked up his first RBI since Sept. 4. For the year, Alcantara is slashing .202/.305/.311 with three homers, 11 RBI, 26 runs scored and 26:60 BB:K over 214 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: On base four times in win

    Alcantara went 1-for-1 with three walks, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 6-5 win over Pittsburgh.

    The shortstop has displayed decent patience at the plate this year with a 12.1 percent walk rate, but this was just the second time he's drawn multiple free passes in a game. Alcantara has gone 6-for-18 (.333) in his last six contests. For the season, he's slashing just .203/.306/.338 with three home runs, two stolen bases, nine RBI and 22 runs scored across 174 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: X-rays return negative

    Alcantara had X-rays on his right ankle come back negative after leaving Sunday's loss to the White Sox, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Alcantara was removed during the fifth inning of Sunday's contest, but it appears he's only dealing with a bruised ankle. The 25-year-old will have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before potentially missing more time.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Leaves with ankle injury

    Alcantara was removed from Sunday's game against the White Sox in the fifth inning with a right ankle contusion, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Andrew Romine came off the bench to replace Alcantara, who can be considered day-to-day heading into Tuesday's game in Minnesota. If Alcantara's ankle bruise is serious enough to require a stint on the injured list, Romine and Matt Duffy would be the main candidates to pick up starts at shortstop.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Gets day off Sunday

    Alcantara is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

    Alcantara started the first two games of the series but will give way to Andrew Romine at shortstop in the finale Sunday. Alcantara is slashing just .190/.284/.328 this season, so he's not a great fantasy option at this point even when he is in the lineup.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Starting Monday

    Alcantara is starting at second base and batting eighth in Monday's game against the Brewers.

    Alcantara will get the nod at second base while Andrew Romine handles shortstop and David Bote gets the night off. With Javier Baez now playing for the Mets and Nico Hoerner (oblique) on the injured list, Alcantara should see more regular playing time in the middle infield moving forward as the Cubs turn their focus toward 2022. The 25-year-old is slashing .170/.264/.321 in 46 games this season.

  • Cubs' Sergio Alcantara: Starting at shortstop

    Alcantara is starting Friday against the Nationals.

    Alcantara was recalled from Triple-A Iowa on Thursday, and he could serve as a top option at shortstop after the Cubs traded away Javier Baez on Friday. Nico Hoerner (oblique) could serve as the primary shortstop once he returns from the injured list, but Alcantara should still see plenty of playing time.
