Cubs RF Jorge Soler (ankle) ready to return on Sunday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Cubs are set to activate right fielder Jorge Soler from the disabled list on Sunday. Soler has been out since June 3 with a sprained left ankle, but he has made four rehab outings.

Soler struggled though, going 2 for 13 in the four games. But manager Joe Maddon doesn't necessarily buy into those stats.

"I don't worry about that stuff," Maddon said, per MLB.com. "To me, it's a matter of, 'If he's healthy and he's seeing the ball, what does his timing look like?' Those are the kinds of things you're trying to get from the guys down there."

Soler is expected to be in the lineup for the series-finale against the Marlins on Sunday. He was batting .237 (9 for 38) with a homer and five RBI over his last 10 games prior to the injury.

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant slams pair in first two innings Saturday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

After two innings Saturday night, Cubs slugger Kris Bryant was on pace to hit eight home runs and drive in 24 against shell-shocked Miami.

OK, that wasn't going to happen. But Bryant certainly destroyed the Marlins with his bat, pretty much putting it away well before darkness fell in Chicago.

Bryant opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first, then blasted a grand slam in the second to give him 12 home runs and 49 RBI on the year. The cherry on top is that he now has a five-game hitting streak.

In the process he became the first Cubs rookie to hit two grand slams in a season since Billy Williams in 1961.

Comeback Kid Clayton Richard shines for Cubs in Saturday win
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Clayton Richard hasn't vaulted himself into the Comeback Player of the Year conversation, but he certainly took an encouraging step forward Saturday night against Miami.

Richard pitched well in his first start with the Cubs, yielding two runs on eight hits with one walk and four strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings to earn the victory. It marked his first major league start since June 2013.

He allowed at least one baserunner in every inning but the sixth, yet continued to pitch out of jams. He did retire the last six batters he faced.

Cubs C David Ross placed on 7-day DL; Taylor Teagarden recalled
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Cubs have placed catcher David Ross on the 7-day disabled list due to a mild concussion. The move is retroactive to Thursday. Ross left Wednesday's game in the seventh inning, though no injury was reported at the time.

Still, Ross will take the minimum seven days to recover from the concussion.

"I had a three-day headache and some nausea," Ross said Saturday, per ESPN.com. "It's nice for the seven-day DL where you can take a step back. I think the main concern is just getting another foul ball. I had that happen a couple of years ago, and it put me out about two months. I don't want to go through that again."

Taylor Teagarden was recalled from Triple-A to be the backup catcher in Ross' absence.
