Star Power Index: Cubs' Eric Sogard goes the extra mile, Robbie Ray's tight pants and an in-game burger break

Welcome to the MLB Star Power Index -- a weekly undertaking that determines with awful authority which players are dominating the current zeitgeist of the sport, at least according to the narrow perceptions of this miserable scribe. While one's presence on this list is often celebratory in nature, it can also be for purposes of lamentation or ridicule. The players listed are in no particular order, just like the phone book.

Eric Sogard scores a run versus the Cardinals Sunday

Sogard is a good real-life player who is valuable to the Cubs. Even if he performs offensively when he plays, he is battling for playing time at second against multiple other options. In deep leagues, there is value in his versatility that could mean eligibility at different positions.

Cubs' Eric Sogard: Losing work to Alcantara

Sogard will return from a three-game absence from the lineup to start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Cardinals. Though Sogard is back in the starting nine for the series finale, his days as Chicago's primary second baseman may be over. The lefty-hitting Sogard was withheld from the lineup for each of the last three games, all of which came against right-handed starting pitchers. Sergio Alcantara appears to have leapfrogged Sogard on the depth chart, but there will be room in the lineup for both players in the middle infield Sunday after Javier Baez (thumb) was scratched from the lineup.

Eric Sogard Providing Cubs Negative Value as Statistically Worst Hitter in MLB

Cubs' Eric Sogard: Rests Wednesday

Sogard is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres. Thanks to injuries to fellow infielders Nico Hoerner (hamstring), David Bote (shoulder) and Matt Duffy (back), Sogard appears to have seized hold of a regular role at second base. Though the Padres will bring a right-hander (Yu Darvish) to the hill for the series finale, the lefty-hitting Sogard will head to the bench in what most likely amounts to a maintenance day. Ian Happ will relieve Sogard at the keystone, ending a streak of four straight starts at the position.

Cubs' Eric Sogard: Plates two runs Saturday

Sogard went 1-for-3 with two RBI, a run scored and a walk in Saturday's win over the Reds. Sogard started for the fourth game in a row with Nico Hoerner (hamstring) landing on the 10-day injured list, and the veteran has been making the most of the opportunity. He's hit safely in three of those four appearances, going 4-for-14 with a double, two RBI and four runs scored in that span. That's far from being elite production, but he's providing decent numbers near the bottom of the order.
