  • Cubs' Michael Busch: Out against left-hander

    Busch is not in the lineup for Friday's contest against the Mets.

    The Mets are sending southpaw Jose Quintana to the bump, which means Busch will begin this one on the bench. Patrick Wisdom is getting the start at first base.

  • Cubs' Michael Busch: Belts homer in loss

    Busch went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk against the Giants in Monday's loss.

    Busch gave Chicago its first lead with a two-run blast to center field in the sixth inning. It was his first long ball over his past 17 contests and just his second across his past 32 games. Busch began the campaign with six homers through 16 contests, so the fact that he's still yet to reach double digits in that category emphasizes the extent to which he's slowed down. Still, the first baseman has been hitting well lately, batting .370 over his past 27 at-bats.

  • Cubs' Michael Busch: Sitting out Saturday

    Busch is absent from the lineup for Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

    Right-hander Andre Pallante is starting for the Cardinals and has reverse splits, so Busch will begin this one on the bench. Cody Bellinger is handling first base and Pete Crow-Armstrong will patrol center field.

  • Cubs' Michael Busch: Reaches three times in loss

    Busch went 2-for-3 with a walk, a double and a run scored in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Reds.

    Busch came into the contest in a bit of a slump, as he was just 1-for-10 over his previous six games. Overall, he's slowed down some after a strong start to the season, though he still has a solid .783 OPS and provides decent pop against righties. While Busch continues to generally sit against lefties, he has at least batted .304 (7-for-23) against them when given the opportunity.
