The 2021 Chicago Cubs season was the 150th season of the Chicago Cubs franchise, the 146th in the National League, and the Cubs' 106th season at Wrigley Field. The Cubs were managed by David Ross, in his second year as Cubs manager, and played their home games at Wrigley Field as members of Major League Baseball's National League Central Division.

The Cubs began the season at home versus the Pittsburgh Pirates on April 1[1] and finished the season on the road on October 3 versus the St. Louis Cardinals. They finished the season 71–91 to finish in fourth place in the Central Division, 24 games out of first place. This marked only the second time the Cubs had failed to make the playoffs since 2014. The season also marked the first time since 2014 that the Cubs finished with a losing record and the first time since 2013 that the Cubs had lost 91 games.[2]

The season marked the end of an era as the Cubs traded core members of the team that won the 2016 World Series (Javier Báez, Kris Bryant, and Anthony Rizzo) at the trade deadline.[3][4]

The Cubs set an MLB record for most players used in a season by a single team as 69 different players appeared for the Cubs.[5]

Previous season

The Cubs finished the 2020 season, which was limited due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,[6] with a record of 34–26 to win the Central Division by three games, marking the fifth time the Cubs had made the playoffs in the previous six years.[7] As the No. 3 seed in the newly expanded playoffs,[8] the Cubs were swept in the Wild Card Series by the Miami Marlins.[9]

COVID-19 effects on season

On February 9, 2021, MLB announced that the protocols in place for the season due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic.[10]

Rule changes

The season was similar to the prior season in that the following rules would be used due to COVID-19:

  • Doubleheaders were two seven-inning games.
  • In extra inning games, each team got a runner on second to start every inning.
  • Active roster limit was limited to 26 and expanded to 28 in September.
  • Each team was permitted to carry up to five additional taxi squad players on all road trips.

There was no universal designated hitter or expanded playoffs.[10][11]

Television broadcasts

On December 4, 2020, the team announced that longtime TV play-by-play broadcaster, Len Kasper, was leaving the broadcast booth to join the Chicago White Sox radio booth.[12][13] Marquee Sports Network announced they would conduct a search to replace Kasper.[14] On January 4, 2021, the Cubs announced that Jon "Boog" Sciambi would join color analyst Jim Deshaies as the play-by-play man in the Cubs booth.[15] Due to Sciambi's national radio obligations, the team announced that Pat Hughes, Chris Myers, and Beth Mowins would act as fill-ins for Sciambi.[16] On May 8, Mowins became the first woman to broadcast regular season games for the Cubs.[17]

Offseason

Front office changes

On November 17, 2020, President of Baseball Operations, Theo Epstein announced his resignation effective November 20.[18] General manager Jed Hoyer took over Epstein's duties.[19] Hoyer signed a five-year extension as the president of baseball operations on November 23.[20] The Cubs promoted Jeff Greenberg and Craig Breslow to assistant general manager positions, but Hoyer announced the club would not hire a general manager prior to the 2021 season due to COVID-19 restrictions.[21]

Transactions

On December 3, the Cubs announced that they would not tender a contract to OFs Kyle Schwarber and Albert Almora Jr.[22] Schwarber later signed a one-year deal with the Washington Nationals.[23] On December 28, the Cubs traded P Yu Darvish and C Víctor Caratini to the San Diego Padres for P Zach Davies and prospects.[24]

Season summary

March

April

  • April 1 – The Cubs opened the season at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cub pitching struggled as Kyle Hendricks lasted only three innings while walking three and giving up three runs. Meanwhile, seven relievers walked eight batters and gave up two more Pirate runs. The Cub offense pushed across three runs on RBIs by Anthony Rizzo, Joc Pederson, and Willson Contreras. But, it was not enough as the Cubs lost the opener 5–3.[35]
  • April 3 – After an off day, Jake Arrieta made the start in his return to the Cubs and allowed only one run in six innings. Meanwhile, Kris Bryant and Jason Heyward hit solo home runs to provide all the offense Arrieta and the bullpen needed. Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the ninth to secure the 5–1 win. A day after walking 11 Pirates, the Cubs walked only one while striking seven of the last nine batters of the game.[36]
  • April 4 – Kris Bryant and Joc Pederson drove in runs in the first and Ian Happ homered in the third to stake new Cubs starter Zach Davies to an early lead. However, Davies surrendered a two-run homer in the sixth to narrow the Cub lead to 3–2. Bryant scored on an error in the sixth to extend the Cub lead to two before the bullpen allowed a run in the eighth to again narrow the lead to one. Craig Kimbrel pitched his second consecutive perfect inning to notch his second save as the Cubs beat the Pirates 4–3.[37]
  • April 5 – With the Milwaukee Brewers in town, new Cub starter Trevor Williams pitched a perfect game into the sixth before allowing two runs in the seventh. Meanwhile, Willson Contreras hit a two-run homer in the fourth while Javier Báez and David Bote each hit solo homers in the fourth as well to give the Cubs a 4–0 lead. Leading 4–3 in the seventh, Eric Sogard tripled to drive in a run and push the Cub lead to 5–3. Alec Mills pitched a perfect ninth for the save as the Cubs won 5–3.[38]
  • April 6Adbert Alzolay gave up four runs on four hits in five innings against the Brewers while the Cub offense managed only one hit, a double by Kris Bryant, losing 4–0.[39]
  • April 7 – In the final game against the Brewers, Kyle Hendricks pitched much better, going six innings without allowing a run. Trailing 1–0 in the eighth, Joc Pederson got his first hit as a Cub, a solo home run to tie the game. Going into extra innings for the first time on the season, Lorenzo Cain homered in the 10th to give the Brewers a 4–1 lead. The Cubs managed to push across the runner starting the inning at second in the bottom of the 10th, but left the bases loaded when Ian Happ popped out to end the game with the Cubs losing 4–2.[40]
  • April 8 – Taking to the road for the first time on the season, the Cubs traveled to Pittsburgh to face the Pirates. Jake Arrieta pitched well again for the Cubs, going six innings and allowing only two runs. For only the fifth time ever, Javier Báez, Kris Bryant, and Anthony Rizzo homered in the same game as the Cubs won 4–2. Craig Kimbrel pitched his first-ever five-out save in the regular season as the Cubs moved to a game over .500 on the season.[41]
  • April 10 – After an off day, the Cubs offensive woes continued in game two of the series against Pittsburgh, managing only two runs. Zach Davies gave up seven runs in 1.2 innings as the Cubs were blown out 8–2. The loss dropped the Cubs back to .500 on the season.[42]
  • April 11 – Trevor Williams gave up five runs in three innings and the Cub bullpen surrendered another two runs. Meanwhile, the Cub offense continued its season-long struggles, managing only one run on five hits as the Cubs were blown out again by the Pirates, losing 7–1.[43]
  • April 12 – Kris Bryant homered as the Cubs traveled to Milwaukee, but the Cub offense failed to score any other runs until the ninth as the Cubs lost to the Brewers 6–3. Adbert Alzolay pitched well, before surrendering three runs in the sixth and Andrew Chafin gave up three more in the inning.[44] Through 10 games, the Cub offense set franchise records for lows in hitting and batting average over any 10-game period in Cub history.[45] In addition, the Cubs have struck out 100 times which is more than double their hits (49) in that time period.[45]
  • April 13 – After placing four players on the COVID-19 list, including three relief pitchers, the Cubs scratched Kyle Hendricks from his scheduled start against the Brewers because he wasn't feeling well. Alec Mills started instead for the Cubs and pitched four innings while surrendering only two runs. The Cub bullpen held the Brewers scoreless for the rest of the game, but the Cub offense only managed one run until the eighth when Willson Contreras hit a two-run homer to give the Cubs a 3–2 lead. Craig Kimbrel walked one batter in 1.1 innings, but got the save as the Cubs moved to 5–6 on the season.[46]

Willson Contreras hit his third homer of the season and Eric Sogard drove in a run as the Cubs lost 5–2.[50]
  • April 17 – Braves' starter Huascar Ynoa entered the game with 0.75 ERA, but the Cub offense finally broke out of its funk, at least for a game. Contreras hit two homers as did Kris Bryant. David Bote and Javier Báez also joined the homer parade as the Cubs scored a season-high 13 runs en route to a 13–4 win.[51]
  • April 18 – On Sunday Night Baseball, Kyle Hendricks became the first Cub ever to allow four home runs in the first inning as the Braves blew the Cubs out 13–4. Anthony Rizzo did hit two solo home runs for the Cubs in the loss.[52]
  • April 20 – After an off day, the New York Mets traveled to face the Cubs at Wrigley. Jake Arrieta pitched well again, allowing only one run in five innings. Meanwhile, the Cub offense, continued to struggle, but scored three runs, only one of which was on a hit. The other two runs scored on a bases loaded walk and a throwing error by Mets' third baseman J. D. Davis. Craig Kimbrel walked two and gave up a hit to force the bases loaded in the ninth, but held on for the save in the Cubs 3–1 win.[53]
  • April 21 – The Mets took an early 2–0 lead before the Cubs scored seven runs in the fourth without a home run helped by two Met errors in the inning. The Mets narrowed the lead to 7–4 in the fifth, but the Cubs added three more in the bottom half of the fifth. Javier Báez hit a grand slam in the sixth, pushing the lead to 14–4. The Cubs added two more runs as they blew out the Mets 16–4.[54]
  • April 22 – Willson Contreras drove in a run with an infield single and Kris Bryant doubled in two runs to give Trevor Williams a 3–0 lead in the fourth. However, the Mets chipped away at the lead, tying it at three in the seventh. In the 10th, the Mets left the bases loaded and Jason Heyward drove in the game-winning run with a pinch-hit single to give the Cubs the 4–3 win and a sweep of the series.[55] The win moved the Cubs back to .500 on the season.
  • April 23 – The Cub offense erupted again, scoring in double figures for the third time in six games as the Cubs blew out the Brewers at Wrigley Field. Javier Báez, Willson Contreras, Jake Marisnick, and Anthony Rizzo each homered for the Cubs as Marisnick drove in five on the day in the 15–2 win that extend the Cubs' winning streak to four games.[56]
  • April 24 – The Cubs took an early 2–0 lead on a two-run double by Nico Hoerner and Adbert Alzolay allowed only one run in 5.2 innings, but the Cub bullpen surrendered three runs as the Brewers ended the Cubs' four-game winning streak 4–3.[57]

However, the Cubs could manage no further, losing their third straight, 8–7.[59]
