The Chicago Cubs’ middle infield depth took a hit over the course of the past month with injuries to Matt Duffy, David Bote, and Nico Hoerner. Fortunately for the Cubs, the team has received a shot in the arm from veteran journeyman Patrick Wisdom.
Through his first 13 games with the Cubs and 36 plate appearances, Wisdom has ignited the team’s offense. Wisdom currently has a slash line of .412/.444/1.088/1.533 with 7 home runs and 10 RBIs. For Wisdom, most of his success was due to the hot streak of games that he has put together for the Cubs over the course of the past week.
