3/26 Jeff Baker update
Jeff Baker, who came out of Friday’s game with tightness in his left hamstring, will be held out of weekend games as a precautionary measure. Baker said he felt something in his leg during an at-bat in the Cubs’ game against the Mariners. On Saturday, there was still some residual soreness in his hamstring. He hoped to get the go-ahead to play Monday.
“I’ll be ready when I need to be ready and get back out there hopefully in a couple days,” Baker said. “I’d just like to get this a little better and not have to worry about it going forward.”
