Player Outlook
An oblique injury, suffered early in spring training, put Seiya Suzuki on the injured list to begin the 2023 season. He then endured some ups and downs in the first half, bottoming out with a .475 OPS in the month of June, before exploding for a .313/.372/.566 line and 13 home runs after the All-Star break. He finished with a 126 wRC+ for the season (100 is average). Pretty much everything was up for Suzuki across the board from his debut season in MLB after a storied career in his native Japan, with the exception being steals as his total fell to from nine to six even with more playing time and the rule changes benefitting stolen bases. While speed isn't a huge part of his game, there may still be some sleeper potential here if you believe in his second-half surge. Suzuki, now 29, projects to remain a near-everyday outfielder and middle-of-the-order presence under new Cubs manager Craig Counsell.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Starting light activity

    Seiya (oblique) is introducing light baseball activity Sunday, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Networkz reports. Suzuki was placed on the 10-day injured list April 15 due to a right oblique strain and is expected to miss about four weeks, as reported by Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune on April 16. Suzuki was off to a hot start this season, slashing .305/.368/.525 with three home runs and 13 RBI over 68 plate appearances.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Out several weeks

    Suzuki is expected to miss roughly four weeks due to a moderate strain in his right oblique, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Manager Craig Counsell said the Cubs will have a better idea of Suzuki's return timeline once the outfielder is free of symptoms, but it appears he is in for a much longer IL stay than the 10-day minimum. Alexander Canario was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to replace Suzuki on the outfield depth chart, and Garrett Cooper has served as the Cubs' DH since Suzuki landed on the injured list Monday.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Moved to 10-day IL

    The Cubs placed Suzuki on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a right oblique strain, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Suzuki was off to a strong start this season, slashing .305/.368/.525 with three home runs and 13 RBI. Jeff Passan of ESPN.com notes that Suzuki missed nearly six weeks after straining his left oblique in spring training last season, but the Cubs are hopeful that the 29-year-old won't remain on the shelf for that long this time around. In a corresponding move, the Cubs recalled Alexander Canario from Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits third home run

    Suzuki went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 4-1 win against Seattle. Suzuki was one of three Cubs with solo home runs in the win, joining Michael Busch and Miguel Amaya. The outfielder struck out in his other three at-bats, so the performance wasn't all good, but fantasy managers won't complain about three long balls through 14 games. Suzuki hit a career-high 20 home runs in 2023, and he could make a run at surpassing that figure this season if he keeps up his recent level of play.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Drives in three Friday

    Suzuki went 1-for-2 with a walk, a double and three RBI in Friday's 9-7 win over the Dodgers. Suzuki is one of several Chicago players swinging a hot bat amid the team's 5-2 start. The outfielder is slashing .345/.394/.621 -- all three marks would be new career highs by a good margin if he can keep this up. Suzuki will likely cool down some, though he's certainly talented enough to post strong fantasy numbers all season.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Big effort Wednesday

    Suzuki went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and three additional RBI in Wednesday's 9-8 win over the Rockies. Suzuki hit his second home run of the season in the fifth inning and this was his third multi-hit effort through six games. The outfielder is off to a strong start with a .972 OPS, and he should remain locked into a premium lineup spot for the Cubs moving forward, giving him plenty of opportunities to continue racking up stats.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits first 2024 home run

    Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a walk, a two-run home run and and additional run scored in Tuesday's 12-2 win over the Rockies. Suzuki was part of a Chicago onslaught, getting things started with his first home run of the season in the first inning. The outfielder has a hit in four of his first five games and is now batting a solid .273, which is right around his career .275 mark.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Likely to bat second

    Suzuki is likely to begin the season batting second for the Cubs, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports. Suzuki hit second some in 2023 but spent most of the season batting fourth, fifth, or sixth. His 183 wRC+ from Aug. 1 on last season was the third-best mark in all of baseball and the Cubs are hoping Suzuki will be able to offer more consistent production in 2024. Suzuki is likely to be preceded in the lineup by Nico Hoerner and followed by Ian Happ and Cody Bellinger.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Hits first spring home run

    Suzuki went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Angels. The home run was Suzuki's first of the spring, though he's been solid with a .969 OPS across five Cactus League contests. Suzuki took a step forward in his second MLB season last year, boosting his production in virtually every category. The outfielder should be locked into a regular role for the Cubs in 2024 and has additional room for growth, making him an attractive fantasy option.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Suzuki is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers. Suzuki started the previous 47 games and posted a 1.086 OPS during that stretch, but he'll shift to the bench Sunday after the Cubs were eliminated from postseason contention. The 29-year-old is poised to finish his second season in Chicago with an. 842 OPS, 20 homers, 74 RBI and 75 runs in 138 games.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Tallies three hits in loss

    Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in Thursday's 5-3 loss to Atlanta. Suzuki had a tough series in Atlanta due to a costly error in Tuesday's loss, though he did still manage to go 5-for-13 over the three games with four RBI. The outfielder has had a nice season overall with an .843 OPS, 20 home runs and 74 RBI, and the Cubs will need him to keep it up this weekend in Milwaukee as they fight for a playoff spot.

Suzuki opened the game's scoring with a first-inning RBI single and then delivered a two-run shot to left field in the bottom of the fourth. He also added another single for good measure in the bottom of the sixth.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Pops 18th homer

His long ball Friday brought the Cubs within three runs, though the comeback push fell short. Suzuki is at a .277/.345/.475 slash line with 18 homers, 65 RBI, 66 runs scored and six stolen bases through 125 games this season.

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

    Suzuki went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies. Suzuki enjoyed his night at Coors Field, launching his 17th home run of the season with a runner on in the sixth inning and tacking on another RBI hit for good measure. After a rough patch in the beginning of August, the outfielder has heated up, as he's batting .412 this month with four home runs and 14 RBI across 13 games.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Possible waiver wire pickups

    For the better part of two seasons now, we've been waiting for Suzuki to deliver numbers befitting his Statcast readings, namely the 80th percentile average exit velocity and 94th percentile max exit velocity. Well, it may finally be happening. After another 2-for-4 performance Wednesday, which included a double and three RBI, he's batting .355 (38 for 107) with eight home runs, two triples and 11 doubles since Aug. 1. Part of what made his underachievement so frustrating is that the strikeout rate was well under control, but even that's improved with him striking out just 16.4 percent of the time during this stretch. It doesn't mean he'll remain this hot to close out the season, but it does hopefully mean he's achieved a level of comfort in this league that will allow his skills to shine through. Even just as a hot-hand play, he needs to be rostered everywhere.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Another strong game Wednesday

    Suzuki went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the Giants. For the second straight night, Suzuki recorded three RBI, and his strong play lately is giving the Cubs a big boost in their hunt for a playoff spot. Over his last 10 games, Suzuki is batting .333 with three home runs and 10 RBI. The outfielder should remain locked into a prominent lineup spot as Chicago tries to punch its ticket to the postseason.

  • Cubs' Seiya Suzuki: Stays hot with home run

Over his last five games, the outfielder has gone 7-for-19 with two home runs. The Cubs invested heavily in Suzuki before the 2022 season, so he should stay in the lineup as long he avoids any more prolonged slumps.
