Cubs 40-man roster coin flips: Frank Schwindel

Cubs 40-man roster coin flips: Frank Schwindel

Photo by Nuccio DiNuzzo/ Does he fit on the team, or a narrative? Some video highlights of his season, too. I’ve been figuratively wrestling a literary alligator recently. There’s a term I’m looking for that isn’t quite this word, that term, or the other concept. It’s kinda close, but not really any of them. I’ve been rototilling my internal dictionary over the last week or so, and while the word or term still escapes me, I assessed a few terms in a previous effort in writing this article. Eventually, a few clouds cleared, and my Frank Schwindel 40-man...

Chicago Cubs: Frank Schwindel, Patrick Wisdom make MLB All-Rookie Team

In a mostly forgettable, brutal season for the Chicago Cubs fans, the one bright spot during that brutal final stretch of the season came from their aging rookies. Patrick Wisdom and Frank Schwindel both proved they still had a lot to prove even when approaching 30 and have earned spots on the 2022 team.

Patrick Wisdom, Frank Schwindel named to MLB Pipeline’s All-Rookie team

Photo by Quinn Harris/ Old for rookies, the Cubs pair played well in their first full MLB seasons. Patrick Wisdom and Frank Schwindel are both far past the age of most “rookie” players in Major League Baseball. Wisdom turned 30 in August and Schwindel will pass that milestone next May. For various reasons, neither got much of a chance to play in the major leagues before this year. Schwindel was blocked in the Royals and Athletics organizations and the Cardinals gave up on Wisdom after making him a first-round pick (52nd overall) in 2012. Tuesday, both Cubs were...

Chicago Cubs: Frank Schwindel has earned a spot on next year’s team

Once the Chicago Cubs disassembled the core and embarked on a massive sell-off at the trade deadline, the bright spots were few and far between. One of them, though, was the opportunity guys like Frank Schwindel had to prove what they could do. Schwindel, along with others like Rafael Ortega and Patrick Wisdom, took a […] Chicago Cubs: Frank Schwindel has earned a spot on next year’s team - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Frank Schwindel named National League Rookie of the Month

Photo by Eric Espada/ The Cubs first baseman gets another honor. Cubs first baseman Frank Schwindel took home NL Player of the Week honors in early September. Now. he’s got another award to add to his trophy case: National League Rookie of the Month for September (which includes the three days of October). Schwindel hit .344/.388/.600 (43-for-125) from September 1 through the end of the season, with 11 doubles and seven home runs. A lot of that production was in that NL Player of the Week performance, as he tailed off a bit toward the end of the season. He also had a...

2021 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 160

2021 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 160

Photo by Scott Kane/ Cubs battle to the end, but come up short 4-3 The Cubs have had just so many of these stories this year. Of course, guys like Patrick Wisdom, Rafael Ortega and Frank Schwindel have (rightfully) chewed up all of the headlines doing the “out of nowhere” thing. But tonight’s Superhero, Trayce Thompson, certainly qualifies as well. Sure, his role has been smaller. But before 2021, Trayce had last appeared in the majors in 2018. He last had a productive year during the Cubs’ championship season. Some of you may remember him hitting 13 homers for...

Chicago Cubs: Keith Law says Frank Schwindel is having a ‘fluke season’

Finding feel-good stories when it comes to this Chicago Cubs team in the second half hasn’t been easy, but first baseman Frank Schwindel is doing everything he can to make his presence felt and keep fans engaged down the stretch. The 29-year-old rookie has filled an unenviable role with seeming ease – replacing Anthony Rizzo, […] Chicago Cubs: Keith Law says Frank Schwindel is having a ‘fluke season’ - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Chicago Cubs: Frank Schwindel needs to be the guy at first in 2022

At long last, the 2021 season is coming to a close with the Chicago Cubs officially eliminated from postseason contention – the earliest that’s been the case since 2014. Jed Hoyer has promised the team will be very active in free agency this offseason, so at least there’s that. While that is exciting to hear, actions […] Chicago Cubs: Frank Schwindel needs to be the guy at first in 2022 - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - Chicago Cubs News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Photo by Quinn Harris/ The Cubs will once again try to end the Cardinals’ winning streak. Saturday notes... FRANK THE TANK: If Frank Schwindel gets a hit this afternoon, he will own the longest hitting streak by a Cub this year. Currently his 13-game streak is tied with Kris Bryant (May 17-31). Over the 13 games The Tank is hitting .393/.433/.696 (22-for-56) with eight doubles, three home runs, 12 runs scored and only seven strikeouts, and he is the first Cub with three hitting streaks of at least eight games in a season since both Jason Heyward and Anthony Rizzo...
