Cubs' Zach McKinstry: Tallies three hits Tuesday
McKinstry went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Nationals.
McKinstry tallied his first three hits for the Cubs in his sixth game with the team. The 27-year-old has the versatility to play all over the field, though he seems like more of a reserve player in Chicago at this point, particularly with Nick Madrigal taking on a larger role at second base. That limits McKinstry's fantasy value for now, but he could see an uptick if he earns more playing time.... See More ... See Less

Cubs' Zach McKinstry: Traded to Cubs
McKinstry was traded from the Dodgers to the Cubs on Saturday in exchange for Chris Martin, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.
A 33rd round pick in 2016, McKinstry has a .323/.401/.550 slash line with 18 home runs in 114 games at Triple-A, but his .210/.266/.403 career line in 74 games in the majors is less impressive. He has played at every position besides catcher, first base and center field this year alone, so his defensive versatility is a big plus.... See More ... See Less

McKinstry (neck) started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

He was placed on the 10-day injured list June 28 due to neck stiffness, making Friday the earliest that he can be activated.

McKinstry (neck) was fielding groundballs prior to Thursday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

McKinstry (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Promoted Sunday
McKinstry was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday.
The 27-year-old will take the roster spot of Mookie Betts, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cracked rib in a corresponding move. McKinstry has appeared in only four major-league games this season and is 1-for-5 with a two-run home run, and he should receive some opportunities in right field while Betts is sidelined. McKinstry has hit well at Oklahoma City this year with a .328/.414/.463 slash line in 46 contests.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Likely Betts replacement
McKinstry will likely get recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
This wouldn't generally be that interesting for fantasy, but Mookie Betts was placed on the 10-day injured list with a cracked rib, so McKinstry could see playing time against right-handed pitching in the short term. He is hitting .330/.417/.469 with three home runs in 45 games at Triple-A.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Optioned to Triple-A

The move was made in correspondence with Max Muncy (elbow) being activated from the 10-day injured list. McKinstry will likely remain a top candidate for a call-up as the season goes on....

Dodgers' Zach McKinstry: Swats homer Friday
McKinstry went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 6-1 win against the Mets.
McKinstry was called up from Triple-A on Thursday and saw his first big-league action in over a month Friday. He struck out in his first at-bat before launching a 376-foot, two-run shot to right field in the fourth inning. McKinstry has some pop -- he hit seven long balls in 158 at-bats with the Dodgers last season -- but isn't likely to receive enough playing time in the majors to be a viable fantasy asset....
