Fantasy Impact:

Hoerner hurt himself during a check swing in Wednesday’s 8-2 loss to the Cubs. It’s unclear exactly how long Hoerner will miss, but the 24-year-old is out at least the next 10 days. David Bote will handle second base duties and should see an uptick in playing time the while Hoerner is sidelined. Sergio Alcantara was recalled from Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move.
