5/30 Soriano out of game
Alfonso Soriano had to leave Monday’s game in the first inning with a left quad strain. He will undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. He grabbed his leg steps after crossing first base trying to beat a throw from third. Blake DeWitt took over in left. If Soriano has to go on the DL, he’ll join a long list. Reed Johnson (back), Jeff Baker (groin), Marlon Byrd (face), Andrew Cashner (shoulder) and Matt Garza (elbow) are already on the DL. And, who comes up? The Cubs tapped into the Double-A roster on Monday, adding DJ LeMahieu to take Baker’s spot. Could Tyler Colvin be back? We’ll see. Soriano was the Cubs’ RBI and home run leader with 29 and 12, respectively.
