#Cubs Szczur to DL
Matt Szczur was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday because of a mild right hamstring strain and Ryan Kalish called up from Triple-A Iowa. Szczur was injured during a double steal attempt Monday night in the fifth inning. He was on third base when David Ross, who was on first, broke for second. Szczur headed home, then stopped as the throw came in and started again, which is when he injured the hamstring. He told the media in Pittsburgh that he didn’t think the injury was too severe. He underwent an MRI on Tuesday. Christian Villanueva was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room on the 40-man roster for Kalish.
Also, Jason Heyward was not in the Cubs’ lineup Tuesday for the second straight game, nursing a sore wrist.
