  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Goes deep Wednesday

    Hoerner went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Nationals.

    Hoerner went deep in the seventh inning, giving him seven home runs this season. That's a career best for the infielder, who is also up to a career-high 95 games played this season. Hoerner isn't known for his power, though his even .300 batting average certainly carries some fantasy value. He should continue to see regular playing time moving forward for the rebuilding Cubs, and the 25-year-old should be squarely in their 2023 plans as well.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Three hits, steal in win

    Hoerner went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's victory over Miami.

    All three hits were singles, but Hoerner grabbed an extra bag in the second inning against the battery of Pablo Lopez and Nick Fortes, his 12th steal this season. While he doesn't provide a ton of pop, the stolen bases and high batting average (.298) make Hoerner appealing in a variety of formats.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Takes seat Friday

    Hoerner is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Marlins, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hoerner started the past 27 games and will take a seat Friday for the first time in over a month. The 25-year-old posted a .697 OPS during that stretch, and Christopher Morel will receive a look at shortstop in the series opener versus Miami.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Launches homer in win

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two total runs scored in Saturday's 6-2 victory over Philadelphia.

    Hoerner led off the scoring Saturday with a solo shot that gave the Cubs an early lead. He came around to score again in the extra inning on a Frank Schwindel grounder. The homer was Hoerner's second of the month and sixth of the season. The shortstop has five hits in his last three games and has gone hitless just four times in 18 games this month. He is slashing .282/.320/.437 in July and possesses a .303 batting average on the season.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Cashes in game-winner

    Hoerner went 3-for-4 with an RBI in a 3-2 win over the Mets on Sunday.

    Hoerner had a good night at the plate, rapping out three singles, including one which cashed in the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth with two out. The three-hit performance made up for a defensive gaffe earlier in the game when the second baseman misplayed a rundown situation which allowed Starling Marte to scamper home from third and Francisco Lindor to reach safely at second. Despite only walking 4.1% of the time, Hoerner has shown excellent bat-to-ball skills and his hitting .307 with a .305 xBA.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Racks up three hits Sunday

    Hoerner went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-9 loss to the Dodgers.

    Hoerner continues to swing a hot stick -- he's hit safely in eight of 10 games in July. In that span, he's gone 11-for-39 (.282) with four extra-base hits, two RBI, five runs scored and a stolen base. The 25-year-old shortstop is up to a .306/.341/.429 slash line with five home runs, 26 RBI, 27 runs scored, seven steals, 10 doubles and three triples through 71 contests overall.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Launches homer Friday

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-3 extra-inning loss to the Dodgers.

    Hoerner hadn't homered since June 24, but he ended that two-week drought with a fifth-inning solo shot off Dodgers starter Tyler Anderson. In his last 18 games, Hoerner has gone 26-for-68 (.382) with two long balls, eight RBI, 10 runs scored and a stolen base. The hot hitting has earned him a near-everyday role at shortstop, and he's now batting .300/.337/.420 with five homers, 25 RBI, 25 runs scored and seven steals through 258 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Day off Friday

    Hoerner is not in the starting lineup for Friday's contest with the Red Sox.

    Hoerner will get a day off after he went 7-for-13 with a double, two RBI and two runs during a three-game series against the Reds. He currently owns an eight-game hit streak, raising his average from .271 to .310 over that stretch. Andrelton Simmons will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Friday's series opener.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Tallies three hits in loss

    Hoerner went 3-for-4 in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

    All three hits were singles, and Hoerner failed to score any runs or record any RBI. Still, his batting average crept over the .300 mark, as he's now hitting a robust .304. The shortstop is more of a contact hitter at this point, and the 28-46 Cubs don't have a great lineup around him. That limits Hoerner's fantasy value, but he should remain a decent asset due to his regular playing time and ability to rack up hits.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Homers in Friday's win

    Hoerner went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 3-0 win over the Cardinals.

    Hoerner opened the scoring with a long ball off Cardinals starter Andre Pallante in the second inning, and that was ultimately all the Cubs needed. This continued a solid June for Hoerner, who is hitting .292 (21-for-72), though he hadn't homered since May 26. The infielder has a .286/.320/.411 slash line with four homers, 22 RBI, 19 runs scored, six stolen bases, six doubles and three triples across 56 contests overall.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Tallies three hits Thursday

    Hoerner went 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

    Hoerner's counting stats don't jump off the page, with just three home runs and 20 RBI this season, though he does consistently rack up hits. The 25-year-old is now batting .280 this year, which comes on the heels of batting .302 in 44 games with the Cubs in 2021. Hoerner has established himself as the team's top shortstop, and he has some fantasy value despite being limited in terms of power production.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: On bench for nightcap

    Hoerner isn't starting the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Hoerner started at shortstop in the first game of the twin bill and went 2-for-3 with two runs and a stolen base. However, Andrelton Simmons will shift to shortstop while Christopher Morel starts at second base in the nightcap.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Not in Friday's lineup

    Hoerner isn't starting Friday's game against the Cardinals.

    Hoerner will get a breather after he went 2-for-13 with a walk and a strikeout over the last three games. Andrelton Simmons will shift to shortstop while Rafael Ortega enters the lineup in center field.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: On bench for Game 2

    Hoerner will sit for the second half of Monday's doubleheader against Milwaukee.

  • 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.
