Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Ends season with two more hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-3 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

Schwindel wrapped up a strong campaign on a high note, recording his third multi-hit effort over the last six games. The first baseman finishes the year with a .326/.371/.591 slash line, 14 home runs and 20 doubles across 64 games. Schwindel will likely be the Cubs' Opening Day starter at first base next season.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Collects two more hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Pirates. He also stole a base.

Schwindel registered his second two-hit performance in as many days, bumping his batting average this month to a robust .374. For the season, he now has 18 doubles and 40 runs scored in 60 games. The 29-year-old first baseman is continuing his surprise breakout campaign and should keep delivering fantasy value in the final few days of the regular season.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Scores twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-4 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Pirates.

Schwindel continued his torrid September, as he's now batting .369 this month with 20 RBI and 21 runs scored in 24 games. The 29-year-old first baseman has had a breakout season for the Cubs with a .995 OPS overall, and he's probably playing himself into the team's plans for 2022, especially with Anthony Rizzo no longer in town.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Extends hitting streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Schwindel has been locked in lately, as he now has hits in 11 straight games. The first baseman is batting .388 during the streak with three home runs, seven RBI and 10 runs scored. Schwindel has come out of nowhere this season for the Cubs, but fantasy managers should keep him in their lineups as long as he's this productive at the plate.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Homers again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's 8-5 loss to the Brewers.

Schwindel sent a solo blast off Adrian Houser over the left-field wall to open up the fifth inning. It was his second home run over his last three games and his 14th overall of the year. The 29-year-old is slashing a remarkable .343/.387/.652 with 27 extra-base hits, 39 RBI, 31 runs scored and 13:30 BB:K over 194 plate appearances.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Hits 13th home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Phillies.

Schwindel hit his 12th double of the season in the first inning then connected for his 13th home run of the season in the fifth. The 29-year-old has been a revelation for the Cubs, as he came into the season known primarily as a minor leaguer who had yet to hit a MLB home run. Schwindel should continue to see regular playing time at first base across the final 16 games of the year.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Collects three hits Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

The Cubs lost 15-4, so Schwindel's good performance was one of the few bright spots in this one. The 29-year-old has been a consistent bright spot for Chicago since he entered the lineup regularly following the Anthony Rizzo trade. After the three hits Saturday, Schwindel is batting .344 through 45 games with 12 home runs, 34 RBI and 27 runs scored.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Hits grand slam in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 3-for-4 with a grand slam, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 11-8 win over the Pirates.

Schwindel has been putting up video game numbers recently, as he's had three consecutive games of three hits or more and has 11 RBI over his last five games. He had a pair of base knocks and a walk while coming around to score earlier in Sunday's wild game and then golfed a low breaking ball that just cleared the wall in left for a grand slam in the seventh inning. It was his 11th homer of the year, although 10 of those have come with the Cubs since they scooped him off the waivers. For the year, Schwindel is hitting .338/.383/.655 with 21 extra-base hits, 32 RBI, 24 runs scored and 10:28 BB:K over 149 plate appearances.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Clutch in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 7-6 win over Pittsburgh.

The first baseman went yard for the fifth time in sixth games with a solo shot in the fifth inning, but that wasn't his biggest hit Saturday. Schwindel delivered a walkoff win with a ninth-inning single to plate Andrew Romine. During his power surge, Schwindel has racked up nine RBI and six runs scored. He's slashing .326/.368/.630 with 10 homers, 28 RBI and 22 runs scored through 144 plate appearances.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Goes yard again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Friday's 6-5 win over Pittsburgh.

The first baseman came up clutch after Pittsburgh rallied to tie the game in the top of the sixth inning. Schwindel homered in the bottom of the sixth, and that was enough for the Cubs to earn the win. He's gone deep in four of the last five games, and he's up to nine long balls on the year. Schwindel owns a .315/.360/.608 slash line with 26 RBI, 21 runs scored and nine doubles through 139 plate appearances.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Provides key hit Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 3-0 win over the Twins.

Schwindel went deep with two on and two outs in the third inning, and it ended up being the only offense for both teams. The first baseman now has home runs in three straight games, giving him eight long balls for the season to go with a strong .944 OPS. He's been a surprising bright spot for the Cubs in the wake of the Anthony Rizzo trade.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Homers in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Twins.

Schwindel took John Gant deep in the first inning to give the Cubs the lead. It was his second homer in as many games. He batted .344 with six long balls in August. The 29-year-old is slashing .340/.390/.629 in 105 plate appearances since joining the Cubs.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Provides only offense Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 13-1 loss to the White Sox.

It was an ugly day for the Cubs, with Schwindel's sixth home run of the season the only real bright spot. The 29-year-old has been a pleasant surprise for Chicago this year, as he's delivered a .922 OPS and 20 RBI across 34 games. He should continue to start most days at first base, though he served as the DH on Sunday with the Cubs playing in an American League park.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Reaches twice, scores in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Royals.

Schwindel's walks in the first and seventh innings were the only baserunners allowed by Kansas City starter Kris Bubic until Patrick Wisdom plated Schwindel with a two-run home run in the seventh. Schwindel has played well for the Cubs with a .940 OPS through 27 games, and the 29-year-old should remain the primary option at first base the rest of the way.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Continues strong play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored in Monday's loss to the Reds.

The Cubs left Schwindel in the No. 2 spot in the order for the fourth straight contest and he kept on hitting. The 29-year-old is riding a five-game hitting streak and has hits in 13 of his last 14 games overall. Schwindel should stick near the top of the batting order for however long he can keep this level of production going.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Goes deep in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Marlins.

Schwindel's fifth home run of the season in the sixth inning provided the only offense for the Cubs. The 29-year-old came into the year with only six games of experience at the MLB level, though he's settled into a regular role with Chicago now that Anthony Rizzo (illness) is gone. The five long balls in 22 games shows what Schwindel is capable of from a power standpoint, so fantasy managers in deeper leagues may want to take a flier.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Doubles, drives in three Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Schwindel has been productive lately for the Cubs with a 1.239 OPS and 12 RBI across his last 10 games. The 29-year-old should continue serving as the team's primary first baseman with Anthony Rizzo (Covid-19) now a member of the Yankees. Schwindel offers some power potential for fantasy managers and is worth a look while he's hot.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Goes deep in three-hit effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel went 3-for-5 with a walk, a double, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Friday's loss to the Marlins.

Schwindel has hit the ground running with the Cubs, as he has four home runs and a .948 OPS through 20 games with the team. With Anthony Rizzo now playing for the Yankees, Chicago has playing time available at first base, and it looks like Schwindel has grabbed hold of the role.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel isn't in the lineup Thursday against the Brewers.

Schwindel snapped an eight-game hitting streak Wednesday when he went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. He'll get a day off, as Patrick Wisdom will start at first base while Matt Duffy works at the hot corner.

Cubs' Frank Schwindel: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schwindel is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.

Schwindel started each of the past five games at first base, going 7-for-20 with a home run and a double across those contests. Though Patrick Wisdom will replace Schwindel in the lineup Sunday, there should be room for both players to handle an everyday role at the two corner-infield spots, especially while Schwindel is wielding a hot bat.
