Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Officially placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner was placed on the 10-day injured list with right oblique tightness Friday, retroactive to Sept. 28, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hoerner's placement on the injured list doesn't come as a surprise after he said Thursday that he'll miss the remainder of the season. It's unlikely that his injury will force him to miss the start of spring training in 2022, but Sergio Alcantara should see the majority of the playing time at shortstop during the final series of the 2021 campaign.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Ruled out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (general soreness) won't return during the Cubs' final series of the regular season, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hoerner hasn't been placed on the 10-day injured list, but he confirmed Thursday that he's shifting his focus toward returning to full health for the offseason. The 24-year-old appeared in 44 major-league games during the 2021 campaign and hit .302 with 16 RBI, 13 runs and five stolen bases. Sergio Alcantara should continue to serve as the primary shortstop to close out the regular season.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Likely done for 2021
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner isn't expected to play again this season while he contends with lingering soreness from previous injuries, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Hoerner hasn't seen the field since Saturday and will sit out a fourth consecutive game Wednesday against the Pirates. Though the Cubs have thus far resisted placing Hoerner on the injured list, he may be available only in an emergency over the team's final five games. Sergio Alcantara will serve as the primary option at shortstop while Hoerner is out.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (general soreness) is out of the lineup Sunday versus the Cardinals.

Hoerner was a late scratch for Saturday's game due to general soreness and will remain out of the lineup for Sunday's contest. Serio Alcantara will receive another start at shortstop in his place for the series finale.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Late scratch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner was scratched from Saturday's lineup against the Cardinals with general soreness, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Sergio Alcantara will slot into the lineup at shortstop, batting eighth. Hoerner played in both games of Friday's doubleheader and is available off the bench.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Records two hits, two RBI Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

In his third game back from the injured list, Hoerner delivered his first multi-hit performance since the end of July. The young infielder has only been able to play in 42 games this season due to a handful of injuries, but he's shown promise with his .310 batting average. A strong finish to the season could give Hoerner a boost heading into 2022, and if he's able to stay healthy, he could end up as a strong fantasy contributor over a larger slate of games.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Activated from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cubs reinstated Hoerner (oblique) from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

As expected, Hoerner returns from his oblique strain, which has kept him out since late July, in time for Sunday's series finale in Milwaukee. The 24-year-old slashed .313/.388/.388 in 39 games before the injury and should get frequent starts in Chicago's middle infield going forward.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Returning to action Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) is scheduled to be activated off the 10-day injured list Sunday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

The 24-year-old has been sidelined since late July by a strained oblique, but he's poised to rejoin the lineup for Sunday's series finale at Milwaukee. Hoerner should have an everyday role in the middle infield for the final two weeks of the season for Chicago.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

An oblique strain has sidelined Hoerner since late July. He's expected to remain on his rehab assignment at least through Wednesday, at which point the Cubs will assess whether or not he's ready to return.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Ramps up baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Ross said Hoerner (oblique) took batting practice and participated in infield drills Monday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hoerner was placed on the injured list July 29 with the right oblique strain and appeared on track to rejoin the Cubs by the end of August, only to have his recovery timeline pushed back when he suffered a setback during his minor-league rehab assignment. Due to the length of his absence, Hoerner will more than likely need to restart a rehab assignment and play in at least a handful of games before being activated. Once reinstated, Hoerner will likely take over as the Cubs' everyday shortstop.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Ross said Thursday that Hoerner (oblique) has been participating in baseball activities recently, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hoerner was removed from his first rehab game in late July since he was experiencing tension in his right oblique, but he's now resumed activities. The 24-year-old participated in infield work and hit in the cage Thursday, and Ross is hopeful the middle infielder will be able to increase his workload in the near future.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Not dealing with setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner was confirmed to have not re-injured his oblique Monday and will resume baseball activities soon, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Hoerner has missed nearly a month with an oblique strain. He was pulled from his first rehab game Sunday, though the Cubs called his removal precautionary, and it turns out that he didn't actually suffer a significant setback. He should resume a rehab assignment soon, though exactly when remains unclear. The rebuilding Cubs have no need to rush him, as they're likely primarily concerned with his long-term health given their place in the standings.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Tweaks oblique in rehab game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner was removed Sunday from his rehab game with High-A South Bend after experiencing increased tension along with right oblique, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Hoerner began his third rehab stint of the season Sunday but played only two full innings before pulling himself out of the contest during his third-inning at-bat after an awkward swing. According to the Cubs, Hoerner's removal is being described as precautionary, but he'll be reassessed Monday before the team determines whether he'll need to be shut down again. If and when Hoerner makes it back from the 10-day injured list, the Cubs plan to give him a trial as their everyday shortstop now that Javier Baez is with the Mets, per Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Beginning rehab Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A South Bend on Sunday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

The infielder is expected to progress to Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, which would line him up for an activation around the middle of next week. An oblique strain sent Hoerner to the injured list July 29, but he appears to be nearing his return to the Cubs' lineup.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Rehab games coming soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) will continue workouts through the weekend with the intention of beginning a rehab assignment early next week, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hoerner has been out since late July with an oblique strain. It's not clear exactly how long his rehab assignment will be, and the rebuilding Cubs have no need to rush him back, but it looks as though he could return as soon as late next week if all goes well.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Set to take swings Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) went through fielding drills Monday and is slated to hit in the cage Tuesday, per manager David Ross.

This comes on the heels of Hoerner resuming baseball activities earlier this month, so the infielder is making steady progress as he attempts to return from a right oblique strain he suffered July 29. However, with the Cubs not in playoff contention, they figure to take things slowly with the 24-year-old in an effort to make sure he's fully healthy heading into the 2022 season.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Resumes baseball activities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner (oblique) participated in baseball activities Thursday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hoerner has been on the 10-day IL for a week, but he did running/agility drills and played catch ahead of Thursday's game against the Rockies. The 24-year-old isn't believed to be particularly close to returning, but his return to baseball activities is a step in the right direction.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Placed on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain Thursday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

Hoerner suffered an oblique injury while attempting to check his swing Wednesday, and he'll be unavailable for at least 10 days. The Cubs called up Sergio Alcantara to serve as infield depth, but David Bote will likely work as the primary second baseman while the 24-year-old Hoerner is sidelined.
