As the legend goes, in 1979 Bruce Bochte coined the “Mendoza Line” as a term to describe his Mariners teammate Mario Mendoza as a joke on the light-hitting shortstop who’s average consistently hovered around .200. That sad joke applies today to a glut of underachieving Cubs stars (and soon-to-be free agents). 

UPDATED AVGs:
Anthony Rizzo – .208
Kris Bryant – .208
Kyle Schwarber – .203
Javy Baez – .196
