2/21 Schierholtz sidelined after collision
The Cubs’ Nate Schierholtz was sent home as a precautionary measure after a collision in the outfield with Junior Lake during a drill on Friday. Manager Rick Renteria said Schierholtz checked out fine and should be back on Saturday.
The Cubs were doing pop fly drills when the accident happened in shallow right field.
“They were both calling for [the ball], and it sounds like Junior might have gotten him with the back side,” Renteria said. “You’re talking about two strong men.”
Lake converted to outfield late last season, having spent most of his career at third base.
