Cubs Infielder Placed On Injured List

Chicago Cubs infielder Nick Madrigal has been placed on the 10-day injured list. The 25-year-old is currently dealing with a groin strain. 

Madrigal has once again run into injury trouble this season, and this only heightens that. So far, his transition from the White Sox to the Cubs hasn't been perfect, either. In 31 games, he has zero home runs, two RBIs, and a .222 batting average. When remembering that he hit .340 and .305 in his first two MLB seasons, there's reason to believe he will heat up again. However, any chances of a potential rebound are now placed on pause with this IL stint.

Here's to hoping that Madrigal's injury isn't too serious and that he can return to the Cubs as soon as these next 10 days pass.
