Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is not starting Monday against the Pirates.

Hoerner has just two hits in his last seven games, part of a season in which he's hitting a rather disappointing .232/.310/.273. Jason Kipnis starts ahead of him at second base for the second game in a row.

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

Hoerner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Hoerner will retreat to the bench after starting in six of the Cubs' last eight games. He went 4-for-17 over that stretch, bringing his season-long slash line to .235/.313/.276 in 112 plate appearances. Jason Kipnis will spell Hoerner at the keystone in the series finale.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Plates three runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base, a run scored and three RBI in a victory versus Cincinnati on Thursday.

Hoerner got the Cubs on the board in the fourth inning with a two-run double and brought home another score with an RBI fielder's choice in the fifth. Despite getting inconsistent playing time, the 23-year-old has enjoyed a strong September, hitting .375 (6-for-16) with three RBI.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Starting first game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is starting at second base and batting ninth in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Jason Kipnis is on the bench for the first game Saturday, opening up the keystone for Hoerner. Kipnis has been scuffling a bit lately, so Hoerner could earn more regular playing time if he gets hot at the plate. So far this season, the 23-year-old is slashing .230/.322/.257 in 31 games.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Draws another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner will start at second base and will bat ninth Wednesday against the Pirates.

Hoerner will stick in the lineup for the fourth time in five games, but Kris Bryant's (wrist) return from the injured list Tuesday could make it difficult for the 23-year-old to keep picking up regular starts. Assuming the Cubs lean on Bryant as their everyday third baseman, Hoerner would have to contend with Jason Kipnis and David Bote for reps at the keystone.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Records three hits Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner went 3-for-3 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Tigers.

Hoerner has fallen behind Jason Kipnis in the second base pecking order at the moment, but the former is still a plenty capable hitter. The 23-year-old has a bright future in Chicago, and he could certainly earn more playing time this season if he gets hot and Kipnis falls into a slump.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Out of Tuesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers.

Hoerner started Monday but returns to the bench in favor of Jason Kipnis on Tuesday. Kipnis has outperformed Hoerner so far offensively, and that figures to keep the latter out of the lineup more often than not, at least in the short term.

August 21, 2020 04:36 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is not in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.

Hoerner has started only two of the past seven games and finds himself on the bench again Friday. Jason Kipnis has been receiving the bulk of the time at second base, but it's Hernan Perez who receives the start in the series opener.

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

Hoerner is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

Hoerner started Game 1 at third base and went 0-for-2 with one strikeout in the seven-inning loss. David Bote will start at the hot corner in place of Kris Bryant (wrist) in the nightcap.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Takes seat Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner isn't in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cardinals.

Hoerner didn't start the second game of Monday's twin bill, and he'll remain on the bench Tuesday. Jason Kipnis will start at second base in his absence.

August 17, 2020 07:56 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Sitting for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner isn't starting the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Cardinals, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Hoerner went 0-for-2 at the dish in the first contest of the day. He's now 0-for-9 in his last three games, so perhaps a night off will allow him to reset. Jason Kipnis draws the start at second base for the nightcap.

August 15, 2020 09:56 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner isn't in the lineup Saturday against the Brewers.

Hoerner is 1-for-6 with a double, one run and two walks over the past two contests, and he's been splitting time at second base recently. Jason Kipnis will start at second base Saturday.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Sits again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner Adam Berry of MLB.com Wednesday in Cleveland.

Hoerner has earned the majority of the starts at second base this season, though it's no surprise to see him lose playing time after grabbing just a single hit in his last six games. Jason Kipnis remains the starter against his former team Wednesday.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: On bench Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is not in the lineup Tuesday in Cleveland.

Hoerner has seen plenty of playing time in Chicago this season, though he doesn't have a true everyday role, as he'll be sitting for the fourth time in the season's first 14 games. Jason Kipnis will get the start at second base.

August 4, 2020 03:48 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner will be on the bench Tuesday against the Royals.

Hoerner grabbed at least one hit in each of his first five games but has since gone hitless in four straight. Jason Kipnis will be the second baseman Tuesday.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is not in the lineup Friday against the Pirates.

Hoerner has started the year quite well, hitting .389 with five RBI through five games. He'll hit the bench for the second time this season Friday, with Jason Kipnis again starting at second base.

July 26, 2020 11:20 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Back in lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner is starting at second base and batting seventh in Sunday's game against the Brewers.

Hoerner returns to the lineup after sitting Saturday in favor of Jason Kipnis. The Cubs have faced three straight righties to begin the season, though the right-handed Hoerner now has two starts to the one for the left-handed Kipnis. That indicates Hoerner has the edge for playing time at this point and is not stuck in a true platoon.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Not in lineup Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner isn't in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

Hoerner got the Opening Day start Friday against righty Brandon Woodruff, but he'll sit in favor of Jason Kipnis for the team's second game. Hoerner went 1-for-3 with one run in the season opener. Kipnis will bat eighth and play second base Saturday.

July 24, 2020 04:00 PM
Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Starting on Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hoerner will bat eighth and play second base in Friday's season opener against the Brewers.

Hoerner is the second baseman of the future for the Cubs, and it appears that future begins now. He was pressed into duty earlier than expected last year due to a September injury crisis and held his own, hitting .282/.305/.436 with three homers in 20 games. It's perhaps significant that he'll be starting over the left-handed Jason Kipnis even with righty Brandon Woodruff on the mound for Milwaukee, as the pair was expected to platoon, though it may take a few games until the playing-time split at the keystone becomes clear.

Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Option in center
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Chicago manager David Ross said Hoerner could be an option to play in center field this season if a need arises, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Albert Almora, Ian Happ and Jason Heyward are the most likely candidates for playing time in center, but Ross acknowledged that the team will need "to be prepared for anything this season." Hoerner saw a little action in center with Double-A Tennessee last season, though he did primarily play in the infield both for the Smokies and the Cubs. He's expected to split second base duties with Jason Kipnis in Chicago this season.
