  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Notches three hits, steals base

    Hoerner went 3-for-4 with a run and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-1 win against the White Sox.

    Hoerner rapped three singles in the contest, and his leadoff hit in the second inning led to the Cubs' third run. This was his fifth multi-hit performance of the campaign and first in three weeks. Hoerner is slashing .295/.315/.438 on the season.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Goes deep in blowout loss

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Reds.

    Chicago fell 20-5, so Hoerner's third home run of the season was of little consequence. It's still good to see the shortstop go deep in his second game back from the injured list after missing two weeks with a right ankle sprain. The 25-year-old is expected to be the primary shortstop moving forward for the 18-26 Cubs, with the veteran Andrelton Simmons working in more of a reserve role.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Primary shortstop going forward

    Hoerner will be the Cubs' primary shortstop going forward, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

    Hoerner, who is starting at the six and batting eighth Thursday against the Reds, was activated from the injured list Wednesday and the expectation is that he will get the reps at shortstop while Andrelton Simmons starts at second base or comes off the bench most days. The Cubs are using this year as an audition for Hoerner to show he can stay healthy and stay productive, before the team potentially eyes up a big free-agent signing at the position this offseason. Hoerner is hitting .278/.300/.402 with two home runs and two steals in 30 games.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Comes back from IL

    The Cubs reinstated Hoerner (ankle) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hoerner's return to the 26-man active roster comes as somewhat of a surprise, as the expectation was that he would require a brief minor-league rehab assignment before being activated after he had been sidelined for the past two weeks with a right ankle sprain. The Cubs evidently felt encouraged enough by how Hoerner looked in a full workout earlier this week to activate him, but the 25-year-old may have to settle for a utility role now that he's ostensibly healthy again. Hoerner will be on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Reds, as the hot-hitting Christopher Morel gets a look at second base while the defensive-minded Andrelton Simmons mans shortstop.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Performing all baseball activities

    Hoerner (ankle) took part in hitting, fielding, running and throwing drills during an on-field workout Tuesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Fellow injured middle infielder Nick Madrigal (back) also performed the same activities, as both look to be at similar spots in their respective rehab programs. Hoerner and Madrigal could both be ready to begin minor-league rehab assignments later this week before potentially returning from the 10-day injured list by the end of the month. Though both Hoerner and Madrigal handled everyday roles for the Cubs prior to hitting the shelf, the two may have to fend off Andrelton Simmons and Jonathan Villar for starts in the middle infield once they're back from the IL.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Takes grounders Monday

    Hoerner (ankle) fielded grounders prior to Monday's game against the Reds, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Hoerner has been on the injured list for just over 10 days due to a right ankle sprain, but he's recently been participating in baseball activities. Manager David Ross said Monday that the 25-year-old is close to returning, so it's possible the infielder will be activated within the next few days.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Running bases Saturday

    Hoerner (ankle) will run the bases Saturday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hoerner was cleared for baseball activities this week, but Saturday's workout will mark the first time he's run the bases since sustaining his ankle injury. The 25-year-old has been on the injured list for nearly a week, and it's possible he'll require a minor-league rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Cleared for baseball activities

    Hoerner (ankle) has been cleared to resume baseball activities and is building up in his running progression, but he's without a clear timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    The fact that Hoerner hasn't been shut down from baseball activities since landing on the IL last weekend bodes well for his chances of avoiding an extended absence, but the Cubs may want to see him put in a few more workouts before mapping out a minor-league rehab assignment. Fellow middle infielder Nick Madrigal (back) is also on the mend from an injury of his own, and he and Hoerner could be battling for one spot in Chicago's everyday lineup once both players are healthy.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Shifts to injured list

    Hoerner was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a sprained right ankle, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. The move is retroactive to May 12.

    Hoerner was out of the lineup Sunday for the third consecutive contest and will now be sidelined for at least another week. Andrelton Simmons (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day IL in a corresponding move, so Hoerner's time as Chicago's everyday shortstop has likely come to an end even once healthy.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Still out Sunday

    Hoerner (ankle) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

    Hoerner will be sidelined for the third consecutive game after spraining his right ankle Wednesday against the Padres. The 25-year-old was cleared for light baseball activities Saturday, so he may be another day or two away from retaking the field. Ildemaro Vargas will receive another start at shortstop in his absence.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Remains sidelined

    Hoerner (ankle) remains out Saturday against Arizona.

    Hoerner has been out since spraining his right ankle Wednesday against the Padres. Per Jordan Bastian of MLB.com, Hoerner was only ready for light baseball activities Saturday, so it's possible he won't return for Sunday's series finale. Ildemaro Vargas remains the starting shortstop in Hoerner's absence.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Still day-to-day

    Hoerner (ankle) remains sidelined Friday against the Diamondbacks.

    Hoerner left Wednesday's game against the Padres after spraining his right ankle. He's not yet ready to start even after Thursday's scheduled off day, but he remains merely day-to-day. Ildemaro Vargas will start at shortstop Friday.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Battling ankle sprain

    Hoerner was diagnosed with a right ankle sprain Wednesday after X-rays came back negative, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Manager David Ross said Hoerner may require a couple days off but isn't expected to require a trip to the injured list. The 24-year-old exited Wednesday's contest with the injury and will have Thursday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery before Friday's series opener in Arizona.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Managing right ankle soreness

    Hoerner exited Wednesday's game against the Padres due to right ankle soreness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The 24-year-old initially remained in Wednesday's game after colliding with an umpire, but he was removed in the bottom of the second inning and will be further examined. If Hoerner is forced to miss additional time, Ildemaro Vargas should see an uptick in playing time.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Exits Wednesday's matchup

    Hoerner was removed from Wednesday's game against the Padres in the bottom of the second inning due to an apparent injury, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hoerner collided with an umpire in the bottom of the first inning and was initially able to remain in the game. However, he struck out in the top of the second and was replaced at shortstop by Ildemaro Vargas in the bottom of the inning. The nature and severity of Hoerner's injury aren't yet clear, but he'll have a day to rest before Friday's series opener in Arizona.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Three hits in Saturday's twin bill

    Hoerner went 3-for-7 with a double across both games of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

    The Cubs managed to score only two runs in total while getting swept in the twin bill, so Hoerner's efforts didn't result in any real offense. The 24-year-old infielder did extend his current hitting streak to five games, and he's putting together a solid season in general, slashing .289/.314/.434 with two homers, two steals and 11 RBI. However, he has scored only five runs in 25 games as he consistently hits toward the bottom of the order for one of the weaker offenses in baseball.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Goes deep Wednesday

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the White Sox.

    Hoerner is now riding a modest three-game hitting streak and he's up to two home runs this season. The shortstop isn't a huge power threat, as he failed to hit any long balls across 92 games at the MLB level over the last two years. However, the 24-year-old does make consistent contact at the plate, and he's now batting a solid .276 this season.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Delivers offense Tuesday

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's loss to the White Sox.

    Hoerner delivered the Cubs' only extra-base hit and only RBI in the 3-1 loss to their crosstown rivals. Andrelton Simmons (shoulder) recently began throwing again, and his eventual return could cut into Hoerner's playing time. For now, Hoerner should see most of the team's time at shortstop, and he's performed pretty well with a .278 average, though he only has one home run and eight RBI across 22 games.
