  • Diamondbacks' P.J. Higgins: Signs with Diamondbacks

    Higgins signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Higgins was designated for assignment by the Cubs in late December and elected free agency Monday after clearing waivers. He was quickly able to find a new team and will serve as a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2023. The 29-year-old appeared in 74 games for the Cubs last year and slashed .229/.310/.383 with six home runs, 30 RBI and 23 runs.

  • P.J. Higgins: Exploring free agency

    Higgins elected free agency Monday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Iowa upon clearing waivers after the Cubs designated him for assignment Dec. 29, Higgins will presumably explore opportunities in another organization for the first time in his career. A 12th-round draft pick of the Cubs in 2015, Higgins reached the majors for the first time in 2021 and appeared in 83 total games with the big club the past two seasons. Over 254 career plate appearances, the 29-year-old has slashed .210/.291/.348 with six home runs and 30 RBI.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Outrighted to Triple-A

    HIggins cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Friday. Higgins had been designated for assignment last week in order to clear a spot on the roster for fellow catcher Tucker Barnhart. He'll remain in the organization.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Designated for assignment

    Higgins was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Thursday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Chicago announced the signing of veteran catcher Tucker Barnhart on Thursday, and Higgins was DFA'd to make room on the roster. Higgins appeared in 74 games during 2022 and had a .229/.310/.383 slash line with six home runs and 30 RBI.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Day off Monday

    Higgins isn't starting Monday against the Reds. Higgins went 0-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout Sunday against Cincinnati and will retreat to the bench for the second time in the last three games. Alfonso Rivas is starting at first base and batting seventh.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Leads offense Wednesday

    Higgins went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a run scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Mets. Higgins came into the night batting just .190 this month across 21 at-bats, but he managed to have a productive game from the No. 7 spot in the order. The 29-year-old has been seeing time at first base, where he played Wednesday, as well as catcher with Willson Contreras (ankle) out. Despite the clearer path to playing time, Higgins still doesn't offer a ton of fantasy upside as a career .203 hitter.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Retreats to bench

    Higgins is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Blue Jays. Higgins had started in seven of the Cubs' last nine games, but even with Patrick Wisdom (finger) recently moving to the injured list, Higgins doesn't look as though he'll operate as the team's primary first baseman moving forward. He didn't help his cause by going 1-for-20 with 11 strikeouts in those seven starts, and Higgins' right-handedness is also likely to limit him to the short side of a platoon at the position with the lefty-hitting Alfonso Rivas, who draws the start Monday against Blue Jays right-hander Jose Berrios.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Filling in for banged-up Wisdom

    Higgins will start at first base and bat eighth in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. With Patrick Wisdom (finger) on the bench for the third straight contest, Higgins will stick in the lineup for the seventh time in eight contests. Despite getting ample playing time of late, Higgins hasn't gotten going at the plate. He's gone 2-for-22 with a home run, three RBI and nine strikeouts over the Cubs' last seven contests.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Provides jolt Wednesday

    Higgins went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Nationals. Higgins gave the Cubs an unexpected boost from the No. 9 spot in the order, going deep in the fifth inning with a runner on to put Chicago up 2-1. The 29-year-old has actually been swinging the bat pretty well this season, as he now has six home runs and an .884 OPS across 43 games. He could earn himself a little more playing time down the stretch, potentially at first base because Willson Contreras and Yan Gomes are ahead of him at catcher.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Slugs grand slam

    Higgins went 1-for-3 with a grand slam, a walk and two total runs scored in Sunday's 11-9 loss to the Dodgers. Higgins punctuated a strong first inning for the Cubs with his grand slam, but that was his only hit Sunday. He's gone 4-for-20 (.200) with three walks and five strikeouts through seven games in July. The 29-year-old catcher has maintained a solid .276/.353/.513 slash line with four homers, 16 RBI, 11 runs scored and four doubles through 86 plate appearances, though his path to playing time behind the dish is likely to close up with Willson Contreras working his way back from a hamstring injury. Higgins could also draw some starts at first base if his hitting earns him a place in the lineup.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Making third straight start

    Higgins will start at catcher and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Dodgers. After manning first base in both of the Cubs' last two games, Higgins will get a turn behind the plate while Yan Gomes rests for the series finale. Gomes and Willson Contreras are likely to occupy either the designated-hitter or catcher spot in most games moving forward, but Higgins could end up encroaching on Alfonso Rivas' role as the Cubs' top first baseman while Frank Schwindel (back) is stuck on the injured list.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Swats homer among three hits

    Higgins went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and an additional run scored in Thursday's 15-7 victory versus the Reds. The Cubs' offense exploded for 23 hits in the contest, and Higgins was one of four players to collect at least three base knocks. His final hit in the blowout win was an eighth-inning, two-run homer. The long ball was his first in June and third of his career. This was also his first career three-hit performance.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Hits first MLB home run

    Higgins went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Brewers. Making the start behind the plate with Willson Contreras serving as the DH in the early game, Higgins popped his first MLB home run in the fourth inning. It was also the first RBI of the season for the 29-year-old. Higgins will return to the bench for the second game Monday, with Contreras taking over as the catcher.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Drives in three Sunday

    Higgins went 1-for-3 with a walk, a triple and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks. Making his first start of the season for the Cubs after getting called up from Triple-A Iowa before the game, Higgins made an immediate impact from the No. 9 spot in the order. The triple was the first of the 29-year-old's MLB career, as were the RBI. Higgins appeared in nine games with Chicago last season, recording just one hit and two walks across 23 at-bats. He should provide some catching depth behind Willson Contreras, who is considered day-to-day with a hamstring strain, and Yan Gomes.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Healthy at Triple-A

    Higgins (elbow) has logged 73 plate appearances across 18 games at Triple-A Iowa this season, slashing .377/.479/.508 with a home run and 10 RBI. Higgins' availability for the start of the 2022 season looked to be in jeopardy after he underwent Tommy John surgery last summer, but he demonstrated enough progress in his throwing program during spring training to make his debut as a catcher back on April 5. He's continued to see most of his action at catcher for Iowa while occasionally dabbling at first base (three starts) and third base (three starts) on his days off from behind the plate.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Nature of surgery clarified

    Higgins will undergo right forearm flexor tendon repair in the near future, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Higgins was initially expected to undergo Tommy John surgery, but he'll undergo a different procedure in the coming days. However, the 28-year-old is still expected to miss the remainder of the 2021 season, and he could also be sidelined to begin the 2022 campaign.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Slated for Tommy John surgery

    Higgins (forearm) will undergo Tommy John surgery in a few weeks, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Higgins suffered a right forearm strain June 11, and he's now been diagnosed with a torn UCL. The 28-year-old is already on the 60-day injured list, and he'll miss the remainder of the 2021 season and the start of the 2022 campaign while he recovers. Jose Lobaton has been serving as the backup catcher while Austin Romine (wrist) has also been sidelined.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Higgins (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The backup catcher is now set to miss an extended time with his strained right forearm, keeping Jose Lobaton in that role until Austin Romine (wrist) returns near the end of the month. It remains unclear exactly how long Higgins will be sidelined.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Out with strained forearm

    Higgins landed on the injured list with a strained right forearm Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Higgins had been serving as the backup catcher in the absence of Austin Romine (wrist) but didn't do much in his limited action, going 1-for-23 at the plate. The Cubs will now have to turn to fourth-string backstop Jose Lobaton, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move, to back up Willson Contreras. It's not yet clear when the team expects Higgins to return.

  • Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Draws start in series finale

    Higgins will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Padres. Higgins will enter the lineup for only the fifth time since his May 19 call-up from Triple-A Iowa. The 28-year-old is off to a 1-for-21 start to his big-league career, and his playing time will likely remain scarce so long as top catcher Willson Contreras is healthy.
