Seiya Suzuki Got Results and, More Importantly, Felt Good in His First Rehab Appearance

Chicago Cubs

Seiya Suzuki successfully completed his first first rehab appearance last night with the Iowa Cubs, as he comes back from the finger strain that has cost him more than a month of his debut season.

The results part was easy enough to see, since the Iowa Cubs were kind enough to share the highlights of Suzuki’s two hits from the game. Suzuki singled and homered in his three planned at bats:

Suzuki even took home player of the game honors for his contributions in the I-Cubs loss against the Columbus Clippers:

Most importantly, though, is that Seiya Suzuki FELT good in the game, his first since May 26. Tommy Birch wrote it up:

“Finger feels great,” Suzuki said, per the Des Moines Register. “Obviously it was my first game back for about a month now. So, a little fatigue. So, I just want to get my body adjusted back to the game.”

Suzuki is expected to DH tonight for the I-Cubs, and then the plan is flexible from there. I don’t *think* we would see him back with the big league team this weekend, though I suppose it’s possible. More likely? He spend another day or two with Iowa, and then when they have their off-day on Monday … Suzuki returns to the Cubs for their 4th of July game in Milwaukee.
