Chicago Cubs DFS Notes
Patrick Wisdom crushed a pair of solo home runs on Saturday, helping to power the Cubs to a 7-0 victory over Lance Lynn and the White Sox. Wisdom led off the fourth inning with a 407-foot blast off of a 2-2 changeup from Lynn. The following inning, he smacked a 2-2 fastball for a 362-foot shot to left field. The 30-year-old is having an unbelievable rookie season, as he's now just one home run shy of Kris Bryant's franchise rookie record of 26 home runs. Bryant accomplished that in 650 plate appearances though, while Wisdom has had just 275. He's now slashing .259/.321/.586 with 25 long balls and 50 RBI.
