#Cubs Almora OK
Albert Almora was feeling 100 percent better after having to leave the field when his back tightened up on Wednesday. The Cubs were doing drills on Field 1 and Almora was in center field.
“I told [coach Brandon Hyde], I want this last one,” Almora said. “It was a little blooper and I took off and as soon as I took off, I felt my back knot up a little bit. It happens. I feel good now.”
After receiving some treatment, Almora said he felt “100 percent.” His status was day to day.
“It’s just the wear and tear of spring, and early mornings, and getting stretched and stuff,” he said. “I feel great now, I feel better. I could go now. I play 100 percent now. Why do it? It’s spring, these games don’t count. It’s precautionary.”
