Player Outlook
An oblique injury, suffered early in spring training, put Seiya Suzuki on the injured list to begin the 2023 season. He then endured some ups and downs in the first half, bottoming out with a .475 OPS in the month of June, before exploding for a .313/.372/.566 line and 13 home runs after the All-Star break. He finished with a 126 wRC+ for the season (100 is average). Pretty much everything was up for Suzuki across the board from his debut season in MLB after a storied career in his native Japan, with the exception being steals as his total fell to from nine to six even with more playing time and the rule changes benefitting stolen bases. While speed isn't a huge part of his game, there may still be some sleeper potential here if you believe in his second-half surge. Suzuki, now 29, projects to remain a near-everyday outfielder and middle-of-the-order presence under new Cubs manager Craig Counsell.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Grabbing seat Friday

    Suzuki is not in the lineup for Friday's contest against the Pirates. Suzuki homered Wednesday in Atlanta but is just 6-for-26 at the dish since returning from the injured list. With Paul Skenes on the hill for the Pirates on Friday, a day off for Suzuki makes sense. Cody Bellinger will shift over to right field while Pete Crow-Armstrong handles center and Mike Tauchman serves as the designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Continues strong play Wednesday

    Suzuki went 2-for-5 with a double, a solo home run and another run scored in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Atlanta. Suzuki is batting just .217 in five games since returning from an oblique injury, though he has a strong .280 average and .825 OPS on the season. Those numbers are in line with the .285 average and .842 OPS the outfielder posted last year, when he also delivered a career-high 20 home runs. Suzuki only has four long balls so far in 2024, but he's been a consistent hitter at the MLB level and could get the power rolling in short order.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Records first steal in return

    Suzuki went 2-for-5 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 10-9 loss to the Pirates. He also stole a base. Suzuki had been out since April 14 due to an oblique injury before getting activated Friday, though he didn't play in that game. He wasted no time getting his bat going Saturday and recorded his first stolen base of the season in the process, so he appears to be fully healthy. The outfielder is now batting a robust .313 to go with an .894 OPS, and he should continue to slot into a prominent spot in Chicago's lineup.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Comes off injured list

    Suzuki (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Suzuki's activation comes at a good time for the Cubs' offense, which just lost Dansby Swanson (knee) to the 10-day IL. Suzuki made two rehab appearances at Triple-A Iowa, going 2-for-5 with a pair of runs and a stolen base. He'll likely return to his usual DH role, which could mean fewer opportunities for Patrick Wisdom.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Rehab stint starting Wednesday

    Suzuki (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reported Tuesday. Suzuki will begin the in-game portion of his rehab from a right oblique strain, a significant step in his recovery. Suzuki has been sidelined for around three weeks, and he could be back with the Cubs sometime this weekend, per Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network. Until he gets reinstated from the 10-day IL, Patrick Wisdom and Mike Tauchman should see more work.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Inching closer to rehab assignment

    Suzuki (oblique) is set to do hitting and defensive drills Saturday alongside Cody Bellinger (ribs), Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports. Suzuki suffered a right oblique strain April 14. He was first limited to light activity in his rehab, but Suzuki has since progressed to on-field batting practice. After his batting session Wednesday, Suzuki noted that he felt he was 80 percent recovered from his oblique strain and could begin a rehab assignment next week if he continues to progress, per Meghan Montemurro and LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Progresses to batting practice

    Suzuki (oblique) took on-field batting practice Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro and LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune report. It's the first time he's taken BP since he suffered a right oblique strain April 14. Suzuki estimated that he's 80 percent recovered from the injury, and he could begin a rehab assignment next week if he continues trending in the right direction. A return to the Cubs' active roster by mid-May looks doable for the outfielder.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Not close to rehab assignment

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Monday that Suzuki (oblique) upped the intensity of his baseball activities Saturday and Sunday but is not close to beginning a rehab assignment, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Suzuki is getting a recovery day Monday before resuming baseball activities Tuesday and Wednesday. While he would appear to be progressing slowly but surely, he still has some hoops to jump through before he's ready to go out on a rehab assignment. Suzuki has missed the last two weeks of action with a right oblique strain.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Starting light activity

    Seiya (oblique) is introducing light baseball activity Sunday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Networkz reports. Suzuki was placed on the 10-day injured list April 15 due to a right oblique strain and is expected to miss about four weeks, as reported by Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune on April 16. Suzuki was off to a hot start this season, slashing .305/.368/.525 with three home runs and 13 RBI over 68 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Out several weeks

    Suzuki is expected to miss roughly four weeks due to a moderate strain in his right oblique, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Manager Craig Counsell said the Cubs will have a better idea of Suzuki's return timeline once the outfielder is free of symptoms, but it appears he is in for a much longer IL stay than the 10-day minimum. Alexander Canario was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to replace Suzuki on the outfield depth chart, and Garrett Cooper has served as the Cubs' DH since Suzuki landed on the injured list Monday.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Moved to 10-day IL

    The Cubs placed Suzuki on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a right oblique strain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Suzuki was off to a strong start this season, slashing .305/.368/.525 with three home runs and 13 RBI. Jeff Passan of ESPN.com notes that Suzuki missed nearly six weeks after straining his left oblique in spring training last season, but the Cubs are hopeful that the 29-year-old won't remain on the shelf for that long this time around. In a corresponding move, the Cubs recalled Alexander Canario from Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits third home run

    Suzuki went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1 win against Seattle. Suzuki was one of three Cubs with solo home runs in the win, joining Michael Busch and Miguel Amaya. The outfielder struck out in his other three at-bats, so the performance wasn't all good, but fantasy managers won't complain about three long balls through 14 games. Suzuki hit a career-high 20 home runs in 2023, and he could make a run at surpassing that figure this season if he keeps up his recent level of play.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Drives in three Friday

    Suzuki went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double and three RBI in Friday's 9-7 win over the Dodgers. Suzuki is one of several Chicago players swinging a hot bat amid the team's 5-2 start. The outfielder is slashing .345/.394/.621 -- all three marks would be new career highs by a good margin if he can keep this up. Suzuki will likely cool down some, though he's certainly talented enough to post strong fantasy numbers all season.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Big effort Wednesday

    Suzuki went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and three additional RBI in Wednesday's 9-8 win over the Rockies. Suzuki hit his second home run of the season in the fifth inning and this was his third multi-hit effort through six games. The outfielder is off to a strong start with a .972 OPS, and he should remain locked into a premium lineup spot for the Cubs moving forward, giving him plenty of opportunities to continue racking up stats.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits first 2024 home run

    Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run and and additional run scored in Tuesday's 12-2 win over the Rockies. Suzuki was part of a Chicago onslaught, getting things started with his first home run of the season in the first inning. The outfielder has a hit in four of his first five games and is now batting a solid .273, which is right around his career .275 mark.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Likely to bat second

    Suzuki is likely to begin the season batting second for the Cubs, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports. Suzuki hit second some in 2023 but spent most of the season batting fourth, fifth, or sixth. His 183 wRC+ from Aug. 1 on last season was the third-best mark in all of baseball and the Cubs are hoping Suzuki will be able to offer more consistent production in 2024. Suzuki is likely to be preceded in the lineup by Nico Hoerner and followed by Ian Happ and Cody Bellinger.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits first spring home run

    Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Angels. The home run was Suzuki's first of the spring, though he's been solid with a .969 OPS across five Cactus League contests. Suzuki took a step forward in his second MLB season last year, boosting his production in virtually every category. The outfielder should be locked into a regular role for the Cubs in 2024 and has additional room for growth, making him an attractive fantasy option.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Suzuki is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers. Suzuki started the previous 47 games and posted a 1.086 OPS during that stretch, but he'll shift to the bench Sunday after the Cubs were eliminated from postseason contention. The 29-year-old is poised to finish his second season in Chicago with an. 842 OPS, 20 homers, 74 RBI and 75 runs in 138 games.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Tallies three hits in loss

    Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. Suzuki had a tough series in Atlanta due to a costly error in Tuesday's loss, though he did still manage to go 5-for-13 over the three games with four RBI. The outfielder has had a nice season overall with an .843 OPS, 20 home runs and 74 RBI, and the Cubs will need him to keep it up this weekend in Milwaukee as they fight for a playoff spot.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Drives in three Friday

    Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 6-0 win over the Rockies. Suzuki opened the game's scoring with a first-inning RBI single and then delivered a two-run shot to left field in the bottom of the fourth. He also added another single for good measure in the bottom of the sixth. The 29-year-old is now up to 20 home runs on the season and boasts a .370/.429/.741 slash line with 22 RBI in 21 games since the calendar flipped to September.
