  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Adds two steals

    Hoerner went 1-for-3 with a run scored and two stolen bases in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rays.

    Hoerner walked to open the Cubs' half of the first inning before swiping second base and scoring on Ian Happ's base hit. The 26-year-old Hoerner would add a second stolen base later in the game, giving him 14 for the season. Hoerner had cooled off a bit at the plate coming into Wednesday's contest, batting .179 (7-for-39) over his last 10 games, though he does have two homers in that span. He's still slashing a solid .285/.336/.395 with four home runs, 26 RBI and 30 runs scored through 217 plate appearances this season.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Hits leadoff home run in win

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Rays.

    Facing tough Tampa Bay starter Shane McClanahan, Hoerner got the game off to a good start, leading things off with his fourth home run of the season. The infielder isn't known as a great power threat, though he has been an effective table setter for Chicago with a .284 batting average and has chipped in 12 stolen bases to boost his fantasy value.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Paces offense in win

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Mets.

    Neither team generated a ton of offense, but Hoerner sparked the Cubs' win from the leadoff spot. The infielder is now batting .295 this season despite entering this game in a mini 1-for-11 slump, and he has scored 27 runs in 40 games. So long as Hoerner is healthy and sitting atop the order, he should continue to produce strong fantasy numbers the rest of the way.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Powers team in return

    Hoerner (hamstring) went 3-for-6 with two doubles and four RBI in Friday's 10-1 win over the Phillies.

    Hoerner provided the four RBI from the leadoff spot, which shows how productive Chicago's lineup was from top to bottom. The infielder had just returned from the injured list before the game, so he was able to pick up right where he left off. Hoerner is now batting a robust .310 this season and should continue to be a strong fantasy performer.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Returns from injured list

    Hoerner (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: On track for Friday return

    Hoerner (hamstring) remains on track for activation when first eligible Friday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Hoerner went through more workouts on Monday, including baserunning drills, and came out of it feeling good. Barring a setback, it would appear he'll skip a rehab assignment and return in time for the Cubs' weekend series in Philadelphia.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Goes through baserunning drills

    Hoerner (hamstring) went through baserunning drills Monday, Jordan Bastian of reports.

    Hoerner took part in other drills over the weekend, but the fact that he's already doing some baserunning less than a week after suffering a left hamstring strain is a good sign. He's eligible to return from the 10-day injured list Friday and would seem to have a realistic shot to be ready to go on that day.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Works out on field

    Hoerner (hamstring) fielded grounders, went through agility drills and played catch Saturday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    A hamstring strain interrupted a strong start to the season for Hoerner, who's hitting .303/.348/.395 through 35 games while stealing 12 bases. The Cubs haven't announced a specific date for his return, but the fact that he's able to perform a wide variety of activities despite hitting the injured list just one day prior seemingly gives him a shot at a minimum-length stay. Christopher Morel and Nick Madrigal have spent time at second base in his absence.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Placed on 10-day IL

    The Cubs placed Hoerner on the 10-day injured list Friday, retroactive to May 9, with a left hamstring strain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hoerner suffered the injury while running the bases in Monday's series opener against the Cardinals and will be sidelined for at least another week. Christopher Morel is covering second base and batting leadoff Friday against the Twins and right-hander Sonny Gray. Nick Madrigal should also get regular looks at the position in Hoerner's absence.
