  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Goes deep off bench

    Wisdom went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.

    Wisdom entered the game as a defensive replacement in the fifth inning and later hit his fourth home run of the year in the ninth. The 32-year-old remains a clear bench player for the Cubs, with the likes of Michael Busch and Christopher Morel ahead of him at the corner infield spots, so Wisdom is unlikely to have a ton of fantasy value the rest of the way unless any regulars get hurt.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Delivers off bench Tuesday

    Wisdom went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 7-6 win over the White Sox.

    Wisdom provided a game-tying blast as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning after replacing Michael Busch. Over his previous 15 games, Wisdom had gone just 4-for-31 (.129) with two doubles, three RBI and 11 strikeouts. He's now slashing .230/.304/.475 with three homers, 11 RBI, seven runs scored and three stolen bases over 69 plate appearances this season. Wisdom's slump during May didn't help his cause to see more than a short-side platoon role, as he's primarily played at first base in a short-side share with Busch.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Three hits, homer

    Wisdom went 3-for-4 with a solo home run during Sunday's 5-4 win over the Pirates.

    Wisdom reached four times during the extra-inning win and belted a solo homer off Aroldis Chapman in the 10th frame. With Cody Bellinger and Seiya Suzuki healthy, starts will likely come at a premium for Wisdom despite slashing .321/.441/.679 across 34 plate appearances this season.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Sitting in third straight

    Wisdom is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Wisdom is on the bench for the third straight game and looks to be the odd man out of the Cubs' regular lineup following Cody Bellinger's return from the 10-day injured list. The 32-year-old Wisdom could still play regularly against left-handed pitching.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Not starting Monday

    Wisdom is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres.

    Wisdom had served as the Cubs' designated hitter in three of the past four games, going 4-for-11 with a home run, a double, two two walks, two RBI, three runs and two stolen bases during that stretch. Christopher Morel will get a day out of the field and will be deployed at DH, but Wisdom could have a hold on a near-everyday role until Seiya Suzuki (oblique) returns from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Emerging as primary DH

    Wisdom will serve as the Cubs' designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Wisdom is starting at DH for the third time in four games, and it looks like the role will be his for the taking for the time being after the Cubs optioned Matt Mervis to Triple-A Iowa on Saturday. Wisdom should have an opportunity to see steady playing time until the Cubs get at least one of Seiya Suzuki (oblique) or Cody Bellinger (ribs) back from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Homer, steal in win

    Wisdom went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Brewers.

    Wisdom, who exceeded 20 homers each of the past three seasons, finally got on the board with his first long ball of 2024. He also added his second steal of the season, and his second steal since the calendar flipped to May. Wisdom has totaled just 20 at-bats since he returned from the injured list April 18, as most of his playing time has come against left-handed pitching, though he's now been the DH in two of the Cubs' last three games versus opposing right-handers.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Getting start in right field

    Wisdom will start in right field and bat second in Friday's game against the Marlins.

    Fresh off the injured list, the right-handed hitting Wisdom will be thrown right into the mix against left-hander A.J. Puk. Most of the 32-year-old's playing time figures to come against southpaws. Wisdom has a career .813 OPS versus lefties.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Back from IL

    The Cubs activated Wisdom (back) from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Wisdom went to the injured list just before Opening Day and was able to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa on April 6. During the assignment, the 32-year-old appeared in nine games and went 11-for-27 with three home runs across 36 plate appearances. Miles Mastrobuoni was optioned to Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Begins rehab in Triple-A

    Wisdom (back) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Wisdom landed on the injured list just before Opening Day and has now been cleared to test his back in a game setting. The Cubs haven't indicated how long they plan on keeping the 32-year-old in Triple-A, but he remains on track to return sometime around mid-April.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Goes on IL

    The Cubs placed Wisdom (back) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    According to MLB.com , manager Craig Counsell said Wisdom was able to resume baseball activities before spring training came to a close, so the veteran corner infielder might not be too far away from starting a minor-league rehab assignment. Counsell said he expects Wisdom to return from the IL around mid-April.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Will open season on IL

    Wisdom (back) will open the season on the injured list, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    It's not clear what the official diagnosis is for Wisdom's back injury, but the club hopes his stay on the IL will be a brief one. Once healthy, Wisdom is projected to see starts against left-handed pitching while shifting between third base, first base and designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Awaiting imaging results

    Wisdom (back) has not shown improvement in the past few days, and the team is awaiting imaging results to determine next steps, MLB.com reports.

    Wisdom's back issue was initially believed to be fairly minor, though it's somewhat concerning that he hasn't shown improvement yet. At this point, it's unclear if the 32-year-old will be ready in time for Opening Day. Wisdom would likely only have a bench role for the Cubs if healthy, so his fantasy utility may be limited this year, unless he's able to seize a larger role than expected at some point.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Managing back issue

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that Wisdom, who hasn't seen game action since Wednesday, is dealing with a back injury, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    It's not believed to be a serious injury, however, with Wisdom expected to rejoin the Cactus League lineup Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. The 32-year-old also missed time early in camp due to quadriceps tightness, but he's hit well when available, going 6-for-16 with two homers in six spring games.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Back in lineup

    Wisdom (quadriceps) is in the Cubs' lineup for Saturday's spring training game against the Rockies.

    Wisdom has been held out since Feb. 27 due to tightness in his right quad, but he felt good after participating in a sim game Tuesday and has been given the green light to return to the Cactus League. Wisdom was just 1-for-8 across three games before getting injured, and he figures to operate as a reserve player for the Cubs heading into the regular season.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Plays in sim game Tuesday

    Wisdom (quadricep) took at-bats in a simulated game Tuesday and is building back up to being ready for game action, MLB.com reports.

    Wisdom has played in only three Cactus League games, and there's no clear timetable for his return, but this is still promising news. The veteran seems like he should be healthy by the start of the regular season, though he'll likely have to settle for a reserve role due to the Cubs adding some corner infield depth in the offseason and Christopher Morel pushing for more playing time as well.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: No longer playing Tuesday

    Wisdom (quad) isn't feeling well enough to return to Cactus League action as hoped Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Wisdom had a flare-up with his right quad last week and hasn't progressed as quickly as hoped. He remains day-to-day, but it's unclear when he might be ready for games. Wisdom figures to see most of his starts for the Cubs this season against left-handed pitching.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Expected back Tuesday

    Wisdom (quad) is expected to play in Tuesday's Cactus League game against the Royals, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Wisdom was scratched from Thursday's game against the Rockies due to right quadriceps tightness. It was a precautionary measure, and the infielder is expected to only miss a few days. In 302 plate appearances last season, Wisdom slashed .205/.289/.500 with 23 home runs and 46 RBI.

  • Cubs' Patrick Wisdom: Battling quad tightness

    Wisdom was scratched from the lineup for Thursday's Cactus League game against Colorado due to right quad tightness, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Wisdom's absence was described as precautionary, so his injury doesn't seem to be too severe. The Cubs may hold him out of the lineup for the next couple of exhibition games, but Wisdom should be able to return and continue competing for a roster spot soon. The 32-year-old is currently 1-for-8 with a double across three games in Cactus League play.
