Height: 6' 1"
Date of Birth: April 7, 1993 (28 years old)
Cubs' David Bote: Exits lineup
Bote is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.Bote will sit for the second time in the Cubs' six games to date, allowing Eric Sogard to pick up a start at second base. Despite recording just one hit -- a solo home run -- across his first 13 plate appearances of the season, Bote still appears to be locked in as an everyday player for Chicago.
Cubs' David Bote: Wins second base job
Bote will be the Cubs' regular second baseman following the demotion of Nico Hoerner on Saturday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.Both players have posted an OPS north of 1.000 this spring, so manager David Ross had a tough decision at the keystone, but he opted for the more experienced Bote. The 23-year-old Hoerner should play every day at Triple-A Iowa and could certainly factor into the Cubs' plans at some point this season. However, Bote will at least start the year getting his first crack at a regular role in the majors. The 27-year-old served as a valuable utility player in Chicago the past few seasons, but with more playing time likely coming his way in 2021, his fantasy outlook has improved.
