  • Cubs, Nico Hoerner Agree To Three-Year Extension

    The Cubs are reportedly in agreement with Nico Hoerner on a contract extension. The deal guarantees the Apex Baseball client $35MM over the 2024-26 seasons and buys out one free agent year. Hoerner has emerged as one of the Cubs’ better players in recent years. A first-round pick out of Stanford in 2018, he made it…

  • Cubs, Nico Hoerner Agree On Three-Year Extension

    The Chicago Cubs and second baseman Nico Hoerner agreed on a three-year, $35 million contract extension on Monday night, according to sources. The deal buys out one year of free agency, but Hoerner will still hit the open market at 29 years old. Hoerner served as the team's primary shortstop in 2022, but he'll move back to the keystone this year after the Cubs added Dansby Swanson in free agency. The 25-year-old impressed the team by hitting .281/.327/.410 with a .736 OPS, career-high 10 home runs, 55 RBI, 60 runs scored and 20 stolen bases in 517 plate appearances and 135 games in 2022 in his fourth MLB season. After last season and now with eligibility at shortstop and second base, Hoerner is attractive as a middle infield option in deep-mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Nico Hoerner Scratched With Biceps Tightness

    Chicago Cubs middle infielder Nico Hoerner (biceps) was scratched from Thursday's Cactus League game as a precaution with left biceps tightness. In his place, Miles Mastrobuoni will start at second base and bat ninth in the lineup for the Cubbies against Arizona Diamondbacks right-hander Ryne Nelson. As long as Hoerner is able to return to game action shortly, he should be ready for Opening Day next week. The 25-year-old will move to the keystone in 2023 after the addition of shortstop Dansby Swanson. He boosted his fantasy appeal last year by hitting .281/.327/.410 with 10 home runs, 55 RBI and 20 stolen bases. Hoerner is mostly valuable for his speed in deep-mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Nico Hoerner Named Leadoff Hitter

    Chicago Cubs second baseman Nico Hoerner has been named the leadoff hitter for the team, according to manager David Ross on Thursday. Ross believes Hoerner is exactly what the team needs to set the right tone. The 25-year-old is better known for his defensive abilities, but did a quality job with the bat last season. He hit .281/.327/.410 with a .736 OPS, 10 home runs, 55 RBI, 60 runs scored and 20 stolen bases in 135 games. A move to the top of the lineup should improve his fantasy value, so Hoerner could be a sneaky addition during fantasy drafts.

  • Cubs Avoid Arbitration With Nico Hoerner Friday

    The Chicago Cubs avoided salary arbitration with middle infielder Nico Hoerner on Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $2.525 million deal. Hoerner had easily his best big-league season in his fourth year with the Cubs last season, but it still didn't move the needle much in fantasy. In a career-high 135 games played, he hit .281/.327/.410 with a .736 OPS, 10 home runs, 55 RBI, 60 runs scored and 20 stolen bases in 517 plate appearances. The 25-year-old was used mostly at shortstop, but he is expected to move back to the keystone in 2023 after the Cubs signed Dansby Swanson this offseason. Hoerner is most valuable to the Cubs for his defense and to fantasy managers for his speed on the basepaths.
