  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Provides offense Saturday

    Morel went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Pirates.

    Morel's line drive to center in the bottom of the ninth inning brought in Cody Bellinger with the game-winning run. It was a nice effort for Morel, who's been productive this month despite batting just .220 in May. The production has come mostly in the power department, as the 24-year-old has five home runs this month across 17 games. Morel came into May with four long balls over his first 29 contests.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: In lineup as DH on Tuesday

    Morel (toe) will start at designated hitter and bat cleanup in Tuesday's game in Atlanta.

    Morel had to exit Monday's contest after fouling a ball off his left foot, but he's fine. It's his first start at DH in more than a week, which will free up third base for Patrick Wisdom on Tuesday.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Exits with toe injury

    Morel left Monday's game against Atlanta after fouling a ball off his left foot, and he's been diagnosed with a left toe injury, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Morel is reportedly dealing with bumps and bruises, per Lee, so this appears to be a day-to-day type of injury. The Cubs should know more about his availability for the rest of the week after re-evaluating him Tuesday.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Back in action Sunday

    Morel (knee) will start at third base and bat cleanup Sunday against the Pirates.

    Morel exited in the fifth inning of Saturday's 10-9 loss to Pittsburgh with right knee soreness after he appeared to get hurt on a stolen base attempt in the top of the third. The injury looks to be a minor one, however, given that the 24-year-old is back in the lineup a day later. Morel has gone 8-for-34 with four home runs, 11 RBI and two stolen bases in May.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Exits with right knee injury

    Morel was removed from Saturday's game versus the Pirates in the fifth inning with right knee soreness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Morel looked to hurt the knee on a stolen base attempt in the top of the third inning. He remained in the game initially but was removed for a pinch hitter following a rain delay. The Cubs could have more on Morel's condition after the game.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Goes deep, swipes bag

    Morel went 1-for-5 with a two-run homer, a walk and a steal in Monday's loss to the Padres.

    Morel put the Cubs on the board with his two-run shot in the sixth inning after snagging a steal earlier in the contest. He has five hits over his last five games and four of them have left the yard. The 24-year-old is slashing .220/.315/.449 with 12 extra-base hits (eight home runs), four stolen bases and 23 RBI through 35 games this season.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Homers again Friday

    Morel went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Brewers.

    Morel snapped a scoreless tie with two outs in the sixth inning, launching a solo shot to centerfield off Joe Ross to put the Cubs ahead 1-0. Morel now has homers in back-to-back games and three in his last five contests following a span of 16 games without a long ball. The 24-year-old third baseman is slashing .210/.286/.403 through 133 plate appearances this year with six homers, 18 RBI, 19 runs scored and three stolen bases.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Nabs second steal

    Morel went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Mets.

    The steal was his second of the season, and both pilfers have come in his last eight contests. Morel is struggling to get going with his bat, however -- through 29 games he's slashing a meager .215/.292/.374 with four homers, 14 RBI and 17 runs.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Hits go-ahead home run

    Morel went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's 3-1 win over the Mets.

    Morel was hitless until the ninth inning, when he delivered a two-out home run with a runner on against New York closer Edwin Diaz to break open a 1-1 tie. The key blast was Morel's fourth of the season and first since April 9. He's not off to as fast of a start as he had last year, but the 24-year-old can heat up in a hurry, and perhaps this effort will provide the spark.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Good to go Sunday

    Morel (hip) is starting at third base and batting cleanup Sunday against the Red Sox.

    The 24-year-old collided with Alexander Canario after making a running catch in the outfield Saturday but is apparently no worse for wear. Morel fell into a 1-for-32 slump over nine contests in mid-May, but his bat has come alive over his past six games with a .781 OPS.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Emerges from fall uninjured

    Cubs manager Craig Counsell said Morel "is fine" after exiting Saturday's game versus the Red Sox after the seventh inning following a fall in the outfield, CHGO Cubs reports.

    Morel toppled over left fielder Alexander Canario after making a running catch and landed hard on the ground, banging up his elbows and right hip. He looked to be in some pain and was removed from the game at that point. However, it sounds like he probably would've remained in if the score hadn't been so lopsided. It's possible the Cubs will hold Morel out Sunday if he's still a bit sore, but it does not appear fantasy managers need to have any real worry about his status.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Tallies two hits Friday

    Morel went 2-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 7-1 win over the Red Sox.

    Morel has been scuffling a bit lately, as he's batting just .176 over his last 10 games with no home runs, and he has just three long balls overall this season across 25 contests. Still, the 24-year-old is a legitimate power threat, and even though he hasn't really gotten going in that department yet, he can heat up in a hurry and hit homers in bunches.

  • Cubs' Christopher Morel: Gets first off day of season

    Morel is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Astros.

    The Cubs will hand Morel his first day off of the season while he's fallen into a slump at the dish of late; he's gone 4-for-45 (.089 average) and is getting on base at a .222 clip over his last 13 games. Morel still looks to be entrenched in an everyday role at third base, but Nick Madrigal will occupy the hot corner Thursday.
