Cubs’ Seiya Suzuki on 2023 expectations: ‘The most important is winning’

Cubs outfielder Seiya Suzuki returned from paternity leave with a shock of bleach blonde hair on top of his head.

“The baby keeps crying all night,” Suzuki said through interpreter Toy Matsushita. “So, it’s all the stress, it’s naturally turned blonde.”

He smiled.

Recovering from jet lag, after traveling back from Japan, Suzuki was out of the lineup for the second straight day on Wednesday. But he’d always planned on coming back to finish his first MLB season on the field.

As expected, Suzuki’s rookie year has featured a push and pull of adjustments. He started out hot, winning Rookie of the Month in April.
