5 biggest X-factors for the Chicago Cubs heading into the 2023 season
5 biggest X-factors for the Chicago Cubs heading into the 2023 season - Seiya Suzuki
Seiya Suzuki has a huge season ahead of him. An oblique injury will sideline him to start the season, but once he is back he will be a huge factor in the Cubs' success.
We know what Suzuki could bring to the table, we just need to see it across an almost full season. When Suzuki was healthy last season, he was one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball at times. This off-season, Suzuki put in plenty of work on offense, defense, and the weight room to try and get better for this season.
Suzuki is one of those players that could turn around an entire season for the Cubs. The Cubs desperately need a high-power guy in their lineup, and Suzuki can potentially be that guy.
Once Suzuki is back in a couple of weeks or so, we will be able to see if that impact could be felt immediately. Or if it will take time before we see the Suzuki that most Cubs fans are hoping for?
