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

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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
