Cubs Outfielder Could Be Back Soon


Seiya Suzuki is active again. The Chicago Cubs rookie outfielder will begin some basic exercises tomorrow beginning with some dry swings.  

The twenty-seven year old's recovery was put on pause five days ago, due to continued soreness in one of his fingers. 

Suzuki was having a solid rookie season before injuring his finger while attempting to steal second base in a game against the Cincinnati Reds on May 26th. Prior to the injury, Suzuki was batting .245 and had recorded 4 homeruns, 21 RBIs, and 3 stolen bases over 41 games.

The fielder will likely need a rehab assignment before returning, as he has been away from baseball activities for nearly a month.
