2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bote is a hard guy to figure out. If we combine his Triple-A and major-league numbers from last season, we get 19 home runs and 140 runs-plus-RBI in 473 plate appearances. That's exciting if we prorate those numbers over the course of a full season, but his batting average and on-base percentage are both slightly below the league average. He will, as manager Joe Maddon loves to say, "accept his walk," but he also strikes out a lot. We don't yet have enough of a sample size to get into what his split are, but we do have enough data to show that his power upside is going to be limited by a high groundball rate. He has tried to add more loft to his swing, but it will be tough to overcome his 2.4 groundball-to-flyball ratio. At least Bote's utility role should remain intact. Read Past Outlooks

April 20, 2019
Bote is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.
ANALYSIS
Bote had started in five of the Cubs' last six games, going a combined 5-for-20 with a home run, two doubles and three walks. The versatile utility man continues to see steady at-bats despite his lack of a clear path to an everyday role, but his playing-time outlook could take a hit when shortstop Addison Russell (suspension) is eligible to return May 3.
