6/29 Sweeney injured
Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney had to leave Saturday’s game after the third inning because he injured his ribs crashing into the center field wall. Sweeney was hurt when he hit the wall to catch Kendrys Morales’ fly ball for the second out in the third inning, and suffered left rib soreness. The Cubs expected to know more about the severity of the injury after Sweeney was examined.
Julio Borbon took over in center in the fourth for Sweeney, who has gotten the majority of playing time since David DeJesus sprained his right shoulder colliding with the center field wall at Citi Field June 14. DeJesus is on the 15-day disabled list.
