Wisdom went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Sunday's win over the Brewers.
It was a game of highs and lows for Wisdom, as the 30-year-old struck out four times, but he also connected for his 27th home run of the season with two runners on in the eighth inning. In doing so, Wisdom set a new team rookie home-run record, surpassing the 26 long balls hit by Kris Bryant back in 2015. Considering Wisdom came into the year with four career home runs in 43 games at the MLB level, the power surge has been quite the pleasant surprise.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Phillies.
Wisdom hadn't gone deep yet this month but snapped that streak Tuesday with his 26th home run of the season. In doing so, the 30-year-old tied Kris Bryant's team rookie record set in 2015. Wisdom isn't your typical rookie after mostly toiling in the minors the past nine years, but he's made the most of his opportunity with the Cubs. He should continue to see regular playing time and has a shot to reach the 30-homer plateau, which seemed unthinkable before the season.
Wisdom will sit Sunday against San Francisco.
Wisdom has fallen into a slump recently, going 2-for-28 at the plate over his last eight games. Matt Duffy will take over at third base.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in a 7-0 win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Wisdom took AL Cy Young candidate Lance Lynn deep in the fourth and fifth innings. It was the second straight two-homer game for the slugger, making him the first rookie in Cubs history to accomplish that feat, per Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network. Wisdom has gone deep nine times in his past 16 contests and is up to 25 homers in 251 at-bats overall this season. He needs one more long ball to tie Kris Bryant's team rookie record set in 2015.
Wisdom went 2-for-4 with two home runs, a walk, four RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 17-13 loss to the White Sox.
On his 30th birthday, the third baseman rewarded himself with a pair of homers. Wisdom has gone yard five times in his last seven games. This is the second noticeable power binge for the third baseman, who is up to 23 long balls, 48 RBI, 44 runs scored and three stolen bases through 270 plate appearances. He's added a solid .255/.319/.563 slash line in a surprising breakout season.

Wisdom struck out four times overall in the twin bill, but his three-run shot in the fifth inning of Game 1 provided the margin of victory for the Cubs. The 29-year-old is in the midst of a breakout campaign, slashing .251/.313/.539 with 21 homers and 44 RBI over 79 games. His massive 39.2 percent strikeout rate is certainly problematic, but Wisdom has at least provided a jolt of power for a team that parted ways with three of its biggest bats in separate trades.
Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Royals.
He broke up Kris Bubic's no-hit and shutout bids with one swing of the bat in the seventh inning. Wisdom has gone yard in back-to-back games to give him 20 homers on the season, but for the most part he's struggled to make contact in August, batting .203 (13-for-64) with a 3:29 BB:K through 18 games.
Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and a strikeout in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Royals.
Wisdom returned to the lineup Friday after Wednesday's day off, and he put the Cubs on the board with his solo homer in the second inning.

Wisdom isn't starting Wednesday against the Reds.
Wisdom went just 1-for-8 with five strikeouts across the last two games, and he'll get a breather for the series finale. Matt Duffy will take over at the hot corner and bat fourth.
Wisdom is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.
Wisdom will take a seat for the series finale after he started each of the past three games at a different position (first base, third base and left field). Expect him to rotate among all three spots over the final month and a half of the season, though he should retain a near-everyday role while he continues to supply power. Wisdom owns an .870 OPS over 230 plate appearances on the campaign.
Wisdom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Wisdom is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox.
The stretch run for the Cubs will be all about auditioning players to see who deserves to be part of the club's future. Wisdom has made a strong case for himself in his 62 games already this season, homering 16 times while slashing .272/.335/.572, though his 37.9 percent strikeout rate casts doubt on the sustainability of that line. He looks set to continue featuring frequently over the final two months following the team's moves at the trade deadline, though it will be Frank Schwindel and Matt Duffy who start at the infield corners Friday.
Wisdom went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies.
Wisdom carried the Cubs to victory, and the 29-year-old is now up to 32 RBI and a .927 OPS through 61 games. He's been a pleasant surprise for Chicago and should continue to see regular playing time, especially with Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo no longer in town. Wisdom deserves fantasy attention given his production and relatively secure role.
Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Reds.
Wisdom keeps building on his breakout campaign, as he's now up to 16 home runs, 27 RBI and 30 runs scored through 56 games, to go along with a strong .940 OPS. With the Cubs trading Anthony Rizzo Thursday and potentially making a few more moves before Friday's deadline, Wisdom should see all the playing time he can handle the rest of the way.
Wisdom hit a pinch-hit home run in his only at-bat during Tuesday's loss to the Reds.
Even without being in the starting lineup, Wisdom was able to impact Tuesday's game with a ninth-inning home run, though it wasn't enough to rally the Cubs. The 29-year-old has been a revelation for Chicago since being called up in May, smashing 15 home runs to go with a .924 OPS. By comparison, he came into the year with four career home runs and a .696 OPS across 43 MLB games. Wisdom should remain in the lineup for the Cubs most days based on his strong performance, and a potential Kris Bryant trade would give him an even clearer path to everyday at-bats.
Wisdom is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Reds.
The third baseman went 1-for-2 with a trio of walks and a run Monday. Since the All-Star break, Wisdom has gone 7-for-33 with two home runs, six walks and seven runs while striking out 18 times. Kris Bryant will play third base Tuesday, with Ian Happ getting the start in left field.
Wisdom is out of the lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Wisdom started the past five contests but will head to the bench while mired in a 1-for-12 mini-slump since recording a three-hit game Monday. Matt Duffy (back) was activated from the injured list Friday and will start at the hot corner.
Wisdom went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Monday's loss to the Cardinals.
The Cubs are struggling at 46-48 but Wisdom has been a pleasant surprise, as he now has 14 home runs and a .962 OPS through 47 games. The sample size is getting large enough that it's hard to ignore, and the 29-year-old could settle in as the everyday third baseman, with Kris Bryant likely ticketed for more time in the outfield following the trade of Joc Pederson. Of course, Bryant might also get traded before the deadline, which would only open up more playing time for Wisdom.
Wisdom went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in Chicago's 5-1 triumph over Arizona on Friday.
Wisdom took Matt Peacock yard to left for a valuable insurance run in the seventh but didn't do anything productive at the dish otherwise. Astoundingly enough, 13 of the corner infielder's 17 extra-base hits have left the ballpark and he sports a robust .630 slugging as a result.
