3/10 Sweeney OK after slip
Ryan Sweeney is OK after a freak slip in the outfield on Sunday. The Cubs outfielder had to leave the game because of soreness in his right knee suffered while chasing a ball in right.
“I just slipped and I don’t know if it was concrete or a drain or whatever down in the corner, and my front foot slipped and twisted my back knee,” Sweeney said. “I felt it pull kind of on the outside and it started to tighten up on me and I kind of got a little scared. They wanted me out of the game to make sure I was OK.”
Sweeney had a brace on Monday, and hoped to be able to take part in all the drills. After a lot of ice on Sunday night, there was still some soreness Monday.
