7/2 Stewart headed for surgery
Cubs third baseman Ian Stewart apparently has decided to have surgery on his left wrist. Late Sunday, Stewart said on his Twitter @Ian_Stewart_9 that the surgery would sideline him for six to 10 weeks. Asked by a fan when he was coming back to Wrigley, Stewart wrote, “Looks like next spring training if the cubs bring me back.” Stewart has been slowed by soreness in his wrist, and in mid June, saw a specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, who gave him a cortisone shot. However, he still had discomfort.
