Nico Hoerner (triceps) hitting fifth Sunday for Cubs

The Chicago Cubs will start Nico Hoerner (triceps) at designated hitter in Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

What It Means:

Hoerner has missed the last two weeks with a triceps injury, but will test out his arm at designated hitter against the Pirates this afternoon. He'll bat fifth while Franmil Reyes moves to right field, Patrick Wisdom drops to third base, and David Bote sits.

Our models project Hoerner, who has a $3,200 salary on FanDuel, to score 12.9 fantasy points against the Pirates.
