According to Russell Dorsey of the Chicago Sun-Times, the Cubs are planning to utilize second baseman Nico Hoerner in a multi-positional everyday role moving forward.

Hoerner made appearances at five defensive positions and was named a Gold Glove finalist at the keystone last season. Per Statcast data, his four outs above average -- a range-based metric of skill that shows how many outs a player has saved over his peers -- at second base represented the third-best mark among everyday players at the position during the truncated 2020 campaign. The 23-year-old defensive wizard remains a work in progress at the plate, as evidenced by his lackluster .222/.312/.259 triple-slash line with four extra-base hits across 126 plate appearances last year, but his stellar glove and versatility should make him an everyday option for the Cubs moving forward. He’s worth monitoring closely in deeper mixed leagues as a potential breakout candidate this spring. Dec 26 9:45 pm (EST)
