Cubs' David Bote: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is starting at third base and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Pirates.

Bote will be making his first start after the All-Star break, though he has appeared in both games. With Kris Bryant entrenched at third base and Robel Garcia climbing the depth chart at second, Bote will have to settle for a super utility role the rest of the way, though injuries could change things.

Cubs' David Bote: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Bote was unable to take advantage of the three consecutive starts he drew heading into Sunday, going hitless across 10 at-bats while striking out nine times. With both Bote and Daniel Descalso looking lost at the plate heading into the All-Star break, the newly recalled Robel Garcia may have unseated both as manager Joe Maddon's preferred utility-infield option.

Cubs' David Bote: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is starting at third base and batting sixth in Sunday's game against the Reds.

Bote will pick up his first start of the weekend series after appearing late in Saturday's contest. The 26-year-old is blocked from a starting role at the moment, but he's produced decently when he's played, as he has a .791 OPS and nine home runs in 203 at-bats.

Cubs' David Bote: Out for second straight day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is not in the lineup Friday for the second day in a row.

Bote is hitting just .200 in June, so manager Joe Maddon apparently decided to give him a couple days to clear his head. Addison Russell will man the keystone for the Cubs on Friday night -- the fifth time he has done so in the last eight games.

Cubs' David Bote: Sitting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Braves.

Daniel Descalso will earn the start at second base in the series finale, but Bote appears to hold a playing-time edge over both him and Addison Russell at the moment. The utility man had started five of the previous six games, outpacing both Russell (four starts) and Descalso (zero) during that stretch.

Cubs' David Bote: Sitting out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Mets.

After homering in Friday's 5-4 loss, Addison Russell will be rewarded with a second straight start while Bote retreats to the bench. The two infielders continue to battle for one spot in the everyday lineup, and the timeshare arrangement may be tilting in favor of Russell. Bote has recorded only two hits in 16 at-bats over his last seven games.

Cubs' David Bote: Homers Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Wednesday against the White Sox.

Bote took Lucas Giolito deep in the fourth inning, his ninth homer of the season. That was his only hit of the contest prior to being pulled in the sixth frame in favor of Addison Russell. Though he's hitting effectively -- he has a .273/.348/.492 line across 207 plate appearances -- he continues to lose at-bats to Russell, making his playing time difficult to project moving forward.

Cubs' David Bote: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote will sit for the second straight game Saturday against the Dodgers.

Bote has only started two of the last five games (both at third base) following a stretch in which he started six in a row. He appears to have fallen back behind Addison Russell on the depth chart at second base.

June 15, 2019 08:12 AM
Cubs' David Bote: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is not starting Friday against the Dodgers.

Bote started eight of the Cubs' last nine games. Addison Russell will start at second base Friday, with Kris Bryant at third.

June 11, 2019 04:52 PM
Cubs' David Bote: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Rockies.

Bote will get the night off after going 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday night's series opener. Addison Russell draws the start at second base and is hitting seventh.

June 5, 2019 11:36 PM
Cubs' David Bote: Drives in seven
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote went 4-for-4 with a double, a home run and seven RBI in Wednesday's 9-8 win over the Rockies.

It was a career night for Bote, who hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning, a three-run double in the sixth and a run-scoring single in the eighth. The 26-year-old now has seven home runs and 30 RBI this season to go along with a strong .866 OPS, as he's been a key utility player for the Cubs and a strong fantasy producer when he's been in the lineup.

Cubs' David Bote: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Angels.

Bote started six of the Cubs' last seven games, benefiting in part from Javier Baez missing one contest during that stretch due to a heel injury. With the exception of Ben Zobrist (personal) -- who remains away from the team indefinitely -- the Cubs are now at full strength in the infield and outfield, likely relegating Bote to a super-utility role. While those duties should allow Bote to pick up at least a handful of starts per week, the lack of a full-time role makes him difficult to trust outside of most NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

Cubs' David Bote: Starting again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is starting at third base and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Bote picks up his second straight start to finish the weekend series with St. Louis. On Saturday, he started at second base, as the Cubs deployed Addison Russell at shortstop with Javier Baez (heel) a late scratch. Bote now shifts over to third base with Kris Bryant getting a start in right field. Bote has a solid .277/.356/.475 slash line and has been a valuable reserve for the Cubs all season.

Cubs' David Bote: Homers twice in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Tuesday's 9-6 loss to the Astros.

Bote had a huge impact from the No. 9 spot in this one. He connected for a solo shot in the second inning, then followed that up with a two-run blast in the sixth. Bote is up to six home runs and 22 RBI this season, and while he's regularly competing for playing time on a strong Chicago team, the 26-year-old has been solid when he's been in the lineup.

May 27, 2019 07:56 PM
Cubs' David Bote: Has two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's 6-5 loss to the Astros.

Bote continues to produce when he plays, as he now has a .264/.351/.419 slash line with 19 RBI through 46 games played. With Kris Bryant (upper body) doubtful for Tuesday's game, according to Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com, Bote is likely to start again at third base.

May 27, 2019 11:52 AM
Cubs' David Bote: Starting at third again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is starting at third base and batting ninth in Monday's game against the Astros.

Kris Bryant (upper body) is being held out of Monday's lineup after colliding with teammate Jason Heyward in Sunday's game, which opens up a spot for Bote at the hot corner. The 26-year-old is slashing .256/.347/.416 in 125 at-bats this season.

May 26, 2019 11:52 AM
Cubs' David Bote: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is starting at third base and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Reds.

Bote will be getting his first start of the weekend series, though he did make a pinch-hitting appearance in Saturday's game. The 26-year-old is slashing .254/.343/.418 through 122 at-bats so far this season.

May 20, 2019 11:24 AM
Cubs' David Bote: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Nationals.

Bote heads to the bench for the third time in the last four games as he is batting .191 with a 31.5 percent strikeout rate since the start of May. Kris Bryant notches another start at third base.

May 18, 2019 10:52 PM
Cubs' David Bote: Slugs fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Nationals.

He took Stephen Strasburg deep in the sixth inning, the only really hard-hit ball the Nats starter surrendered all night. Bote is slashing .241/.328/.411 through 38 games with four homers and 17 RBI, and his defensive versatility continues to earn him regular work on the Cubs' infield.

May 17, 2019 04:08 PM
Cubs' David Bote: Sitting out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bote is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Washington.

Bote finds himself on the bench for the second straight game as he's hitting .147 with zero extra-base hits in his last nine games. Kris Bryant starts at third base while Albert Almora grabs the start in center field, pushing Jason Heyward to right field.
