  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Getting day off

    Tauchman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    He'll cede designated-hitter duties to Seiya Suzuki while the Cubs roll out an outfield of Ian Happ, Pete Crow-Armstrong and Cody Bellinger from left to right in the penultimate game of the series. Tauchman's move to the bench comes in the midst of a brief slump at the plate, as he's gone 2-for-18 with two walks over his last five games.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Out against left-hander

    Tauchman is absent from the lineup for Friday's contest in Cincinnati.

    Tauchman has now been out of the lineup each of the last four times the Cubs have faced a lefty dating back to May 22, and he also was on the bench once versus a righty over that span. Christopher Morel is getting a start at designated hitter while Patrick Wisdom plays third base.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Delivers walkoff home run

    Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Wednesday's 7-6 win over the White Sox.

    Tauchman provided some heroics, taking Michael Kopech deep in the bottom of the ninth inning to send the fans home happy. The veteran outfielder has provided steady play for the Cubs, and while Chicago has a crowded outfield, Tauchman has been able to see regular playing time as the DH when he's not in the field. As long as he's getting at-bats, the 33-year-old should hold onto some fantasy value.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: On bench again

    Tauchman is not in the Cubs' lineup Tuesday versus the White Sox.

    Tauchman is not in the starting lineup for the second consecutive game, although he did log a pinch-hit appearance in Sunday's game against the Reds. Prior to the two absences from the lineup, the 33-year-old had started in five straight games. Tuesday's lineup also features Seiya Suzuki as the DH, Cody Bellinger in right and Michael Busch at first.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Tauchman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Reds.

    Tauchman started the previous five games and will take a seat Sunday after he went 5-for-20 with a double, an RBI and three runs during that stretch. Christopher Morel will serve as Chicago's designated hitter Sunday while David Bote starts at third base.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Gets aboard three times

    Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a walk, one RBI, one stolen base and one run scored in Saturday's 7-6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Tauchman has three multi-hit efforts over his last eight games, going 9-for-33 (.273) in that span. His steal Saturday was his fourth of the season, three of which have come in May. The 33-year-old is slashing a fine .263/.376/.410 with four home runs, 16 RBI, 30 runs scored, nine doubles and a triple over 186 plate appearances. Tauchman is in a strong-side platoon role, but he's hitting leadoff against right-handed pitchers.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting against lefty

    Tauchman is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    The lefty-hitting Tauchman will retreat to the bench Wednesday while southpaw Max Fried takes the hill for Atlanta. He'll indirectly cede his spot in the lineup to infielder Nick Madrigal, who draws the start at third base while Christopher Morel replaces Tauchman as the Cubs' designated hitter.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Productive from leadoff spot

    Tauchman went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Tuesday's 4-3, extra-inning win over Atlanta.

    Tauchman served as the leadoff hitter and DH in this one, and he continued his solid play, pushing his average to .262 and his OPS to .789. The veteran is seeing regular time at DH and in right field, with Seiya Suzuki also in the mix for both spots. Tauchman isn't the most exciting fantasy option, but he's worth a look in deeper formats given his role and production.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Goes deep in Wednesday's win

    Tauchman went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-1 win over Atlanta.

    Tauchman was effective from the leadoff spot as he delivered his fourth home run of the season and first since April 28. The veteran started in left field in this one with Ian Happ getting the night off, but the Cubs now have a crowded outfield that features Tauchman, Happ, Cody Bellinger, Seiya Suzuki and Pete Crow-Armstrong. This could push Tauchman to the bench on a frequent basis, though the team seems intent on getting him regular playing time, and he's earned it with a strong .821 OPS so far.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Doubles, scores in loss

    Tauchman went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Mets.

    Tauchman had half of Chicago's hits in the sluggish loss, pushing his season average up to .307 in the process. With Seiya Suzuki (oblique) and Cody Bellinger (ribs) both on the injured list, Tauchman has seen plenty of playing time recently, and the veteran has responded. He should remain a solid short-term fantasy asset, though his long-term outlook is a bit murkier, as it depends on how quickly the other outfielders are able to return to the lineup.
