Nico Hoerner sitting for Cubs Sunday

Nico Hoerner is not in the Chicago Cubs' lineup for Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

What It Means:

Hoerner will take a seat with David Bote moving back to third base, Willson Contreras moving to designated hitter, and Victor Caratini coming off the bench to catch and bat eighth.

Hoerner is having a strong second season with the Cubs. While he hasn't homered yet, he is batting .244 over 104 plate appearances and has stolen 3 bases.
