All right. At least something good is coming, even if not today.
Though he’s not yet activated, Nico Hoerner (hamstring) is all done with his rehab assignment:
Nico Hoerner is in Cincinnati with the Cubs and taking BP today but has not been activated yet. It's a rest day for him after playing back-to-back days on his rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa.
Assuming all goes well today, it's possible he is activated in the next couple days

Nico Hoerner is in Cincinnati and taking batting practice today. He won't be activated today, but could be tomorrow.

Hopefully Hoerner still feels good tomorrow and slides right back in at second base. What you don’t want is him feeling like he has to “save” the Cubs’ season, though. Just do what you were doing before the injury – working fantastic plate appearances, spraying line drives – and let the chips fall.
