Marisnick went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Dodgers.
Marisnick took Walker Buehler deep in the fifth inning to tally his fourth homer of the season. Though he's seen more at-bats of late due to Ian Happ's (ribs) absence, Marisnick will likely return to a limited role once Happ can re-join the lineup. Through 59 plate appearances this season, Marisnick is hitting .269/.356/.635 with 14 RBI and 11 runs scored.
Marisnick went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Thursday's win over Atlanta.
Marisnick took Nate Jones deep with a solo homer in the seventh inning to tack on another insurance run for the Cubs. The long ball was the second of the year for the 30-year-old outfielder, who is hitting .250/.318/.550 across 19 games.
Marisnick isn't starting Saturday's game against Milwaukee.
Marisnick will get a breather after he drove in five runs and crossed the plate three times in Friday's blowout win. Kris Bryant will shift to left field while Matt Duffy starts at the hot corner Saturday.
Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a home run, one double, five RBI and three runs in Friday's 15-2 win over the Brewers.
Marisnick has served as the starting center fielder in each of the last three games since the Cubs have faced three consecutive southpaws, and he was a key force in Friday's victory. He cleared the bases with a double in the first inning before driving in a run on a groundout in the second frame. Marisnick then capped off his dominant performance with a solo home run in the fourth inning. The 30-year-old is now hitting .269 with eight RBI and six runs in 26 at-bats to begin the season.
Marisnick is starting in center field and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Pirates.
Marisnick picks up his first start of the season as Ian Happ heads to the bench. Pittsburgh is starting lefty Tyler Anderson, but Happ is a switch hitter, so this likely isn't a pure platoon situation and Happ should start most days moving forward. Still, this is something to keep an eye on, as Marisnick would certainly have more fantasy value if he earns more regular playing time. Chicago manager David Ross said he didn't want Marisnick to get "stale" after a productive spring training, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Marisnick (calf) will start in right field and will bat fifth in Monday's Cactus League game against the White Sox, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Marisnick's strained calf felt fine while he served as a designated hitter in a "B" game over the weekend, prompting the Cubs to clear him for his usual duties in the outfield. The 29-year-old is expected to begin the season as Chicago's fourth or fifth outfielder, with Joc Pederson, Ian Happ and Jason Heyward seemingly locked in as the team's everyday starters from left to right.
Marisnick (calf) said his leg felt "really good" after appearing as the designated hitter in a "B" game Saturday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.
Marisnick led off each of the first five innings, and he delivered three hits, including a double. The outfielder said he had no problems afterward, so the Cubs will likely try to get him back on the field during a Cactus League game soon. Marisnick projects as the team's fourth outfielder this season behind the starting trio of Joc Pederson, Ian Happ and Jason Heyward.
Marisnick (calf) will appear in a "B" game Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Marisnick dealt with a calf strain over the past week, but he'll get some playing time during a live game Saturday. If all goes well, Marisnick's next step would likely be to return to the Cactus League lineup in the near future.
Manager David Ross said Monday that the Cubs are targeting March 13 to March 15 for Marisnick's (calf) return to the Cactus League lineup, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Marisnick was shut down last week after experiencing some calf discomfort, but the Cubs are viewing the injury as a minor setback at this time. Assuming the outfielder sticks to his current rehab program without issue, he should be ready to return to game action by the middle of next week.
Marisnick is dealing with a calf strain and is expected to test it in baserunning drills Friday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.
It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, though it's prevented the 29-year-old from seeing game action during the first week of spring games. If all goes well in the baserunning drills, Marisnick could be cleared for his spring debut relatively soon.
Chicago manager David Ross has indicated he may use Joc Pederson against both lefties and righties instead of deploying him in a platoon with Marisnick, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.
Marisnick could have some limited fantasy value if he bats regularly against lefties, but Ross indicated that Pederson might get an opportunity against southpaws, at least to start the season. Pederson has historically struggled against lefties, however, so Marisnick could work his way into a platoon situation at some point. The 29-year-old outfielder has a .730 OPS against lefties over the past three seasons, including a 1.099 mark in 17 plate appearances last year.
Marisnick was officially added to the Cubs' roster Sunday when the team designated Phillip Ervin for assignment, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
Marisnick was fully expected to have a reserve outfield spot when he signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with Chicago on Feb. 11, but the release of Ervin locks him in. The right-handed Marisnick could form a left field platoon with left-handed Joc Pederson, who is also a new addition to the roster.
Marisnick signed a one year, $1.5 million deal with the Cubs on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The contract contains a mutual option for 2022.
Marisnick has hit like a bench player throughout his eight-year MLB career, posting an overall .229/.281/.385 slash line, but his strong defense in center field has frequently earned him a fair number of at-bats. The Cubs signed the left-handed Joc Pederson in late January, and a platoon between the two would make some sense, potentially with Pederson starting in left against righties, Marisnick starting in center against lefties and Ian Happ starting at whichever position isn't taken.
Marisnick was placed on the 10-day injured list with hamstring tightness Monday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Marisnick has seen minimal playing time recently, but he should now be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to his hamstring injury. Guillermo Heredia was recalled by the Mets to take his place as outfield depth.
Marisnick (hamstring) will bat seventh as the center fielder Friday against Atlanta.
Marisnick left Saturday's game against Toronto with hamstring tightness and hadn't started since, though he did appear off the bench once during that period. He'll get the nod in this one with a lefty (Max Fried) on the mound for the Braves.
Marisnick was removed from Saturday's game against the Blue Jays with right hamstring tightness, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.
The 29-year-old missed most of August with a left hamstring strain, and he's now dealing with an injury to his other hamstring. Marisnick should be considered day-to-day until the team provides more information on the injury.
Marisnick went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run Tuesday against the Orioles.
Marisnick slugged his second home run of the season with two out in the second inning. Five frames later, he added his second extra-base hit of the day, doubling to left field. Marisnick gets most of his starts against lefties -- relieving Brandon Nimmo in center field -- and has collected 10 hits in 26 plate appearances this season.
Marisnick (hamstring) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday and is starting Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Yankees.
The 29-year-old landed on the injured list in late July with a left hamstring strain, and he'll start in center field and bat eighth in his return to action. Marisnick appeared in five games before landing on the shelf, going 1-for-4 with one strikeout.
Mets manager Luis Rojas said Sunday that Marisnick (hamstring) has resumed taking live at-bats at the Mets' alternate training site, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
Marisnick appears to be making good progress in his recovery from the hamstring strain that shelved him in late July, but the Mets haven't pinpointed a target date for his return from the injured list. Once he's reinstated, Marisnick will likely overtake Billy Hamilton as the team's top reserve outfielder.
Marisnick was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left hamstring strain, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
The 29-year-old battled a left hamstring issue during summer camp, and it appears he never fully recovered from the injury. Marisnick has no official timeline for his return, but he'll be eligible to be activated Aug. 8. Ryan Cordell had his contract selected in a corresponding move and will provide outfield depth.
