Thumb - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-August (Updated - 7/17/15)
News
Catcher Miguel Montero, who has been on the disabled list since July 17 with a sprained left thumb, will see a specialist on Thursday and travel with the team to Milwaukee in the hopes of playing this weekend, per ESPN.com. 

"I can play," Montero said. "It won't be 100 percent until after the season."

Montero's return would give the Cubs some lineup flexibility given that rookie catcher Kyle Schwarber has hit well since being promoted to the majors. Schwarber can play in the outfield, giving Chicago a stronger lineup.

Cubs reliever Hector Rondon recorded his 13th save of the year in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. Rondon struck out two and walked a batter in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the victory.

The save was Rondon's first since June 20, as the Cubs have been mixing and matching at the back end of the bullpen for the last month or so. Still, Rondon has been scored upon just once in his last 19 outings, and his ERA is down to 1.80 for the season.

The home run, Fowler's 10th of the year, was his only hit of the afternoon. He did walk twice and score twice however. He was also caught stealing for the sixth time in 22 attempts.

Fowler has been heating up at the plate, batting .361 with two home runs over his past 10 games.

News
A blown save cost Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks a victory over Colorado on Monday night. But he really didn't deserve it anyway.

Hendricks had been the beneficiary of a six-run fourth inning. He allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings with three walks and four strikeouts.

He fell behind 4-0 on a two-run homer by torrid Carlos Gonzalez in the third and two-run single by DJ LeMahieu in the fourth. He required 104 pitches to get through five.

Hendricks has surrendered nine runs in his last 11 innings and hasn't earned a win since July 5.

News
Cubs starter Jon Lester was terrific on Wednesday afternoon, as he struck out a season-high 14 batters, en route to the 3-2 win over the Rockies. Lester allowed two runs on five hits over eight solid innings, as he threw 77 of his 117 pitches for strikes.

Lester (6-8) gave up a run in the fourth, and another in the seventh on a Carlos Gonzalez solo home run. Other than that, he kept the Rockies at bay with the 14 whiffs. Lester recorded the most amount of strikeouts in a game by a Cubs pitcher since 2004, and he's the only Cubs left-hander to strikeout 14 batters in a game since at least 1914. 

Lester has pitched at least seven innings in each of his past seven starts, going 2-2 with a 1.66 ERA over that stretch.

News
Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo came through in the clutch with a big two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. Rizzo's blast gave the Cubs a 3-0 lead in the third inning, and they were able to hang on for the victory.

The homer, Rizzo's 17th of the year, was his only hit of the afternoon. The young star has been struggling at the plate over the last few weeks, as he's hitting just .132 with two RBI over his past 10 games. His season average has dropped from .294 to .279 over that stretch.

News
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday catcher Kyle Schwarber could see more playing time in left field after playing one inning in left during Sunday's contest, reports MLB.com.

"You saw him play one minute of outfield [Sunday]," Maddon said. "You might see him out there more often as we move along."

Schwarber has been working on outfield drills with coach Dave Martinez. He is hitting .396 with three home runs and 11 RBI in 16 games this season.

News
Left fielder Chris Denorfia will hop back into the lineup for the Cubs on Monday, landing sixth in the team's lineup as they take on the Rockies. 

Denorfia has alternated starts with fellow outfielder Chris Coghlan and Denorfia might have gotten the nod Monday simply due to experience against Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. 

While Denorfia is hitting just .250 against De La Rosa, he does have 24 plate appearances against the veteran pitcher, far more than anyone else in the young Cubs' lineup.
