  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Scores twice Sunday

    Suzuki went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Sunday's victory over Cincinnati.

    The Cubs scored five runs in the first inning Sunday, and Suzuki's contribution was a walk and a run scored on a Franmil Reyes base hit. The rookie also came around to score on a Nico Hoerner sacrifice fly after reaching via a single to right field. In four games since returning from the injured list Sept. 29, Suzuki is 6-for-14 with a home run and three runs scored.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Pops 14th home run

    Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Reds.

    Suzuki's 14th home run of the season in the seventh inning was the difference maker in a 2-1 Chicago victory. The Japanese rookie has had a solid debut with a .785 OPS, though he also missed about a month with a finger injury earlier in the year, so his counting stats could have been better with more playing time. Suzuki could be primed for a big 2023 campaign if he stays healthy and gets more settled in at the MLB level.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Not expected back this weekend

    Suzuki (personal) isn't expected to be available for the Cubs' four-game series in Pittsburgh this weekend, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The 28-year-old was placed on the paternity list Saturday and shifted to the restricted list as a procedural move Thursday. His wife has yet to give birth, so Suzuki will remain away from the team for a few more days. Michael Hermosillo should continue to see increased playing time while Suzuki is unavailable.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Shifts to restricted list

    Suzuki (hand/wrist) was transferred from the paternity list to the restricted list Thursday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Suzuki has been away from the team since Saturday following the birth of his child, and Thursday's move will give him a few additional days with his family since players are only allowed to spend 1-3 days on the paternity list. It's not yet clear when the 28-year-old will be back with the team or whether his hand/wrist issues will impact him upon his return.

However, he'll now spend 1-3 days away from the team following the birth of his child. Esteban Quiroz's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa as part of a move to provide additional depth in Suzuki's absence.

    Suzuki was hit by a pitch on his left hand/wrist Wednesday against the Mets and underwent X-rays after the game that came back negative, per Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: X-rays on tap

    Suzuki is undergoing X-rays on his left hand/wrist after he was hit by a pitch during Wednesday's win over the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run before he was hit by a pitch in the top of the ninth inning. The 28-year-old remained in the game to run the bases and played the field in the bottom of the frame, but he's now heading for medical testing. The Cubs have a scheduled day off Thursday, and Suzuki should be considered day-to-day until his status is updated.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Launches 12th home run

    Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double and two runs scored in Thursday's loss against the Reds.

    Suzuki has been hot at the plate of late, slashing .368/.442/.526 in his last 10 games leading up to Thursday. The homer was his 12th of the season and second in his last three games. It might be too little too late for him to secure Rookie of the Year honors, as Atlanta rookies Michael Harris and Spencer Strider continue to perform well, but the 28-year-old from Japan is trending in the right direction for the stretch run.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Goes deep in easy win

    Suzuki went 1-for-3 with two walks, a home run and three total RBI in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Reds.

    Suzuki blasted a two-run home run, his 11th of the season, in the fifth inning. The rookie then walked with the bases loaded in the seventh to drive in another run. Suzuki missed all of June with a sprained left ring finger, but he's otherwise had a pretty good debut campaign with a .261 average and .761 OPS across 95 games. The Cubs paid him $85 million to come over from Japan in the offseason, so expectations will remain high heading into Suzuki's second MLB season in 2023, and he could take another step forward as he continues to get comfortable in his new league.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Takes seat Wednesday

    Suzuki isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Cardinals.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Steals eighth bag

    Suzuki went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in a 2-0 win in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader with St. Louis.

    Suzuki drove in a run with a single and stole a base in the third inning. It was his eighth stolen base in 11 attempts this season and second in his last four contests. In Japan, he stole as many as 25 bases in a season but was also caught stealing 16 times and has never been an efficient base stealer. The 27-year-old is 9-for-30 with a homer and five RBI in his last eight games.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: On base four times Sunday

    Suzuki went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Sunday's 5-2 loss to Milwaukee.

    The rookie reached base all four times Sunday, including a solo home run against Brandon Woodruff in the fourth inning and a double in the ninth against Taylor Rogers. With seven total bases on the day, Suzuki raised his slugging percentage to .422. The outfielder has found a groove at the dish, batting .348 over his last eight games.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Handed rest day

    Suzuki is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Nelson Velazquez will get the nod in right field while Suzuki takes a seat for the day game after a night game. Suzuki had started in each of the Cubs' last 11 contests, batting just .182 with one home run, five RBI and six additional runs during that stretch.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Tallies three hits, home run

    Suzuki went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's 6-5 loss to the Nationals. He was also caught stealing.

    The failed stolen base came at a bad time, as it was the second out in the bottom of the ninth inning, but Suzuki otherwise had a great night that included his ninth home run of the season. The rookie got off to a hot start this year with a .279/.405/.529 slash line in April, though he's slowed down since then around an injury. Suzuki should still see regular playing time for the rebuilding Cubs, and the Japanese outfielder has the talent to have a strong stretch run.
