Cubs Injury Notes: Wisdom Scratched, Suzuki, Steele

Chicago Cubs

Gotta love having enough guys dealing with physical issues on the third day of spring games to justify a round-up …

The latest is Patrick Wisdom, who has been scratched from today’s game with groin soreness:

It is absolutely true that you go overly cautious on this stuff early in spring training, so I’m not *worried* about Wisdom. It’s just that you don’t want to see this stuff at all.

We’re still waiting on word from Seiya Suzuki’s MRI on his oblique:

I am going to hope that the reason this is still fairly quiet is NOT because there is concern that it’s really serious, but instead is because it’s delicate at a human level to figure out how this impacts WBC. Please be right.

And lastly, at least the news on Justin Steele sounds promising:

If Steele is already stretched out to two or three innings, it really doesn’t matter at all that he missed his first spring start. He could miss another and it still wouldn’t be a big deal.
