Steve Cishek Hoping He Misses Only a Day or Two After Yesterday’s Freak Accident

Chicago Cubs

Although the injury sure looked and sounded scary, it seems like the Cubs and Steve Cishek may have missed the worst of it.

After taking a Brandon Kintzler warm-up toss (with surprising movement) off of the inside of his right knee, Cishek was carted off the field yesterday. But thankfully, it looks like it will just be a really bad bruise that will keep him out for a day or two:

It’s also nice to see word from the horse’s mouth, and a little sense of humor about it, too (via his IG story):

Glad to hear Cishek is feeling better … and that he's got a sense of humor about it. Haha. #Cubs

I hope the Cubs, though, brought someone along from AAA Iowa to Los Angeles just in case they need to make a move at some point during this series – either displacing a reliever like Brad Brach, or if Cishek does wind up needing an IL stint. No sense in playing an arm short when there’s a cache of quality arms available at AAA.
