  • Cubs' Adrian Sampson: Tosses seven innings

    Sampson (4-5) yielded one run on three hits and two walks over seven innings Friday, striking out six and earning a win over the Reds.

    Aside from a solo shot by Jake Fraley in the second inning, Sampson had little issue cruising through seven frames against Cincinnati. The 30-year-old righty has given up two or fewer runs in seven straight starts, posting a terrific 1.60 ERA during that stretch. With his season likely finished, Sampson registered a 3.10 ERA and a 70:26 K:BB through 101.2 frames.

  • Cubs' Ian Happ: Tallies two hits, two runs

    Happ went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Happ has been solid all season for the Cubs, as he's now batting .272, and he leads the team with 72 runs scored. He also paces the squad with 71 RBI, and his 17 home runs are good for third. Happ has cut down on strikeouts this year, which has helped him produce fairly consistently since Opening Day, and the .272 average would be a new career best.

  • Cubs' Nico Hoerner: Drives in three Friday

    Hoerner went 1-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI in Friday's win over the Reds.

    Hoerner made the most out of having only one hit. He drove in two on a second-inning double, then recorded another RBI an inning later on a groundout. The shortstop is batting a robust .284 this season, though he does have just three hits across his last 20 at-bats. Despite some recent struggles, Hoerner remains a solid fantasy asset, particularly when he's swiping bases, as he has 19 steals in 21 attempts this year.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Hermosillo cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Iowa on Friday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hermosillo was designated for assignment by the Cubs on Tuesday, but he'll remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. The 27-year-old struggled in the majors this year, hitting just .115 with two doubles, seven runs, four RBI and a stolen base over 31 games.

  • Cubs' Drew Smyly: Set to start Saturday

    Smyly (shoulder) is scheduled to start Saturday against the Reds, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Smyly threw his second bullpen session of the week Thursday and will start Saturday after being unavailable the past couple weeks with shoulder fatigue. It will be the final start of 2022 for the veteran lefty, who has a 3.48 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 89:26 K:BB across 103.1 innings this season.

  • Cubs' Drew Smyly: Throws another bullpen

    Smyly (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Thursday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Smyly also threw off a mound Tuesday, and he's felt good following each throwing session. Manager David Ross said Wednesday that he expects Smyly to make one more start prior to the end of the regular season, but it's not yet clear when that could occur.

  • Cubs' Wade Miley: Throws bullpen Wednesday

    Miley (oblique) threw a bullpen session Wednesday, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Miley has been dealing with left oblique tightness recently and was able to resume mound work Wednesday after playing catch Tuesday. He felt good after Wednesday's throwing session, but it's not yet clear whether the Cubs expect him to make another start prior to the end of the regular season.

  • Cubs' Steven Brault: Aggravates lat strain

    Brault recently aggravated his left lat strain and has returned to Arizona to start a rehab process, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Brault has been dealing with a shoulder strain since late August, but he began a rehab assignment last week and allowed eight runs while failing to record an out over two appearances. It wouldn't be surprising to see him remain out for the remainder of the year, and it's not yet clear how his setback will impact his offseason program.
