  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Records two hits off bench

    Tauchman went 2-for-2 with a double and an RBI in Friday's 8-3 win over the Marlins.

    Tauchman entered the game as a pinch hitter for Nick Madrigal in the fifth inning, and he responded with his second straight multi-hit performance. Ian Happ was also lifted from this game in the seventh with hamstring tightness and was replaced by Alexander Canario. If Happ has to miss any time moving forward, Tauchman is an option to fill in there, though he'd likely continue to sit against southpaws.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting versus southpaw

    Tauchman is not in the starting lineup Tuesday versus the Diamondbacks.

    Tauchman will take a seat as Chicago will square off with left-hander Tommy Henry on the mound for Arizona on Tuesday. Righty bat Alexander Canario will take over in right field and bat ninth against the Diamondbacks.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Playing time on upswing

    Tauchman will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Padres.

    Tauchman will be making his third start in four games after reaching base four times (one double, one single and two walks) over his prior two starts. At least while he continues to show a solid approach at the plate, Tauchman looks like he'll be prioritized ahead of Nick Madrigal for the final spot in the Cubs' regular lineup versus right-handed pitching.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting again Saturday

    Tauchman isn't in the Cubs' lineup for Saturday's game against the Dodgers.

    Tauchman will sit for the second game in a row Saturday despite the Dodgers sending out right-hander Yoshinobu Yamamoto to start on the bump. Nick Madrigal will fill the open spot in the Cubs' lineup, batting eighth while starting at third base.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Absent from Friday's lineup

    Tauchman is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

    The 33-year-old had started three straight against right-handers but will take a seat Friday with the Dodgers sending Bobby Miller to the mound. Tauchman's essentially been in a platoon with Nick Madrigal, getting starts in the outfield on days when Christopher Morel is at third base. Madrigal is at the hot corner Friday however, while Morel serves as the DH.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting versus lefty

    Tauchman isn't in the Cubs' lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    The lefty-hitting Tauchman will begin Tuesday's game in the dugout as the Rockies send southpaw Kyle Freeland to the mound. Seiya Suzuki will start in right field while Christopher Morel serves as the DH.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Gets second straight start

    Tauchman will start in right field and bat eighth in Monday's game against the Rockies.

    After being excluded from the lineup in both of the Cubs' first two games of the season, Tauchman will make his second straight start Monday, with both coming against right-handed pitchers. At least for the time being, Tauchman seems to have secured a regular role against right-handers at the expense of Nick Madrigal, who will hit the bench for the second day in a row while Christopher Morel mans third base. The Cubs are likely to rotate Ian Happ and Seiya Suzuki at designated hitter on days that Tauchman picks up starts in the outfield.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Not starting Thursday

    Tauchman is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Rangers, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Tauchman was a candidate to serve as the Cubs' DH on Opening Day, but Christopher Morel will get the nod instead with Nick Madrigal starting at third base. Tauchman slashed .252/.363/.377 across 401 plate appearances last season and will operate as Chicago's fourth outfielder to begin the new season.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Roster spot safe

    Manager Craig Counsell said Sunday that Tauchman will be included on the Cubs' Opening Day roster, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

    It's not a major surprise given the veteran outfielder had a solid .740 OPS in 108 games for Chicago last season, but it's still worth noting given Cody Bellinger was recently re-signed. Tauchman is poised to served as the Cubs' fourth outfielder and isn't likely to have much fantasy utility in that role.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Avoids arbitration

    Tauchman signed a one-year, $1.95 million contract with the Cubs on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

    Tauchman slashed .252/.363/.377 with 48 RBI across 401 plate appearances during his first season with the Cubs, earning a $1.23 million raise in the process. He'll likely begin the season as Chicago's primary center fielder, though the impending arrival of Pete Crow-Armstrong could eventually put a dent into Tauchman's playing time.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Tauchman will not start Saturday's game against the Brewers, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The veteran outfielder maintained a surprisingly solid .746 OPS in 81 games through the end of August, but his OPS sits at just .693 in September. With lefty Eric Lauer on the mound for Milwaukee, Tauchman will hit the bench in favor of Patrick Wisdom, who starts at first base, pushing Cody Bellinger to Tauchman's usual spot in center field.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Goes deep in loss

    Tauchman went 1-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Wednesday's 6-5, extra-inning loss to Atlanta.

    Tauchman went deep in the third inning, giving him eight long balls for the year. It was the veteran outfielder's first home run since Aug. 8, and he's batting only .238 this month. However, Tauchman should continue to see opportunities against righties in the last few days of the regular season as the Cubs try to secure a playoff spot.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Idle against lefty

    Tauchman isn't in the Cubs' lineup Sunday against Colorado, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Tauchman will retreat to the bench as left-hander Ty Blach prepares to start on the mound Sunday. Alexander Canario will instead get the nod in center field and bat ninth.

  • Cubs' Mike Tauchman: Sitting versus lefty

    Tauchman is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Pirates.

    Cody Bellinger will start in center field and bat third with the Pirates throwing left-hander Bailey Falter. Patrick Wisdom is playing first base and batting eighth. The left-handed-hitting Tauchman has slashed .239/.327/.370 in 53 plate appearances this year versus southpaws.
