Michael Busch Swipes a Bag in Cubs' Victory

Michael Busch went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in the Cubs' 3-1 win over the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Busch's performance was a mixed bag, delivering a couple of hits and driving in a run, but also striking out twice. His stolen base, only his second of the season, was a rare event and doesn't typically factor into his fantasy value. Given his .270 average and moderate power numbers this season, Busch remains a decent option in deeper fantasy leagues, particularly due to his ability to contribute across several categories. However, his high strikeout rate continues to be a concern, potentially capping his batting average upside.

Michael Busch doubles in Cubs' loss to D-backs

Michael Busch went 1-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Cubs' 5-2 defeat to the Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Impact

While Busch managed to notch another double to his season tally, his overall impact in the game was limited, reflecting a somewhat consistent theme in his season. With a .270 batting average and a modest power display of 12 homers over 92 games, Busch's fantasy value remains moderate. His high strikeout rate of 0.311 continues to be a concern, potentially capping his upside. However, his decent wOBA of .355 suggests that when he does make contact, it's often effective. Fantasy managers should view Busch as a potential depth option, particularly in formats that reward extra-base hits, but be wary of the strikeouts affecting his overall productivity.

Michael Busch swings hot, but Cubs fall short

Michael Busch went 3-for-5 with a double in the Cubs' narrow loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Despite the team's defeat, Busch's performance was a silver lining, showcasing his ability to make solid contact. His season batting average now sits at a respectable .275, and while his power numbers haven't been staggering, his consistent hitting contributes positively to fantasy lineups, especially in formats that reward doubles and on-base percentage. However, his high strikeout rate remains a concern, potentially capping his upside. Fantasy managers should consider Busch a reliable option, particularly in deeper leagues, but temper expectations given his current strikeout tendencies.
