Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The backup catcher is now set to miss an extended time with his strained right forearm, keeping Jose Lobaton in that role until Austin Romine (wrist) returns near the end of the month. It remains unclear exactly how long Higgins will be sidelined.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Out with strained forearm
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins landed on the injured list with a strained right forearm Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Higgins had been serving as the backup catcher in the absence of Austin Romine (wrist) but didn't do much in his limited action, going 1-for-23 at the plate. The Cubs will now have to turn to fourth-string backstop Jose Lobaton, whose contract was selected in a corresponding move, to back up Willson Contreras. It's not yet clear when the team expects Higgins to return.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Draws start in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Padres.

Higgins will enter the lineup for only the fifth time since his May 19 call-up from Triple-A Iowa. The 28-year-old is off to a 1-for-21 start to his big-league career, and his playing time will likely remain scarce so long as top catcher Willson Contreras is healthy.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Contract selected by Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins' contract was selected by the Cubs on Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Higgins began the 2021 campaign with Triple-A Iowa and slashed .333/.458/.513 with a home run, seven runs and six RBI in 11 games. He'll now serve as the backup to Willson Contreras after Tony Wolters was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Moves closer to backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins got a step closer to securing the backup catcher role with the Cubs reassigning Jose Lobaton to minor-league camp Friday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Austin Romine (knee) should eventually become the backup to Willson Contreras, but he looks questionable for Opening Day, so Higgins may get the first crack at the role. The 27-year-old has yet to appear in the majors and likely wouldn't earn enough playing time to be much of a fantasy factor if Contreras stays healthy.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Option for backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins could serve as the Cubs' backup catcher if Austin Romine (knee) remains sidelined into the regular season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Romine's knee sprain isn't thought to be too serious, but the team hasn't provided any timeline for his return, so Higgins could emerge as the backup to Willson Contreras, though veteran Jose Lobaton is also an option. Manager David Ross referenced Higgins' ability to play multiple infield positions, which could help him earn a roster spot. However, if Romine gets healthy, Higgins will likely start the season with Triple-A Iowa.

Cubs' P.J. Higgins: Added to 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Higgins will be a part of the Cubs' 60-man player pool this season.

Higgins was one of four catchers added to the group that will train at Wrigley Field, joining Willson Contreras, Victor Caratini and Josh Phegley. Those other three figure to be ahead of Higgins on the depth chart, but the 27-year-old will be available in case a need arises.
