Cubs third baseman Mike Olt has no ligament damage in wrist
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Cubs third baseman Mike Olt is on the 15-day DL with a hairline fracture in his wrist, but said he has no ligament damage in the hand, according to the Chicago Tribune.

"We did a different kind of X-ray in Colorado (when he suffered the injury against the Rockies) and my pain wasn't too bad, so we didn't look into it further. Then it just didn't progress as well as we thought, so we did an MRI," Olt said.

He will be battling for his job when he is healthy enough to come back as the team has called up prospect Kris Bryant, who has started two games since he went on the disabled list.

Kris Bryant reaches base five times in second game with Cubs
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Prized Cubs prospect Kris Bryant didn't tear the cover off the ball Saturday against San Diego, but he did manage a broken-bat single for the first hit of his career in the fifth inning. And he did see the fans give him a standing ovation for it.

Bryant finished 2-for-3 with three walks, a far cry from his hitless, three-strikeout effort Friday in his major league debut. He also committed his first error, allowing a Wil Myers bouncer kick off his glove to open the game.

Cubs closer Hector Rondon opens door instead for Padres
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs closer Hector Rondon had been a picture-perfect pitcher early in 2015, but was far from perfect on Saturday.

Entering having not yielded a run in six outings, he sought his third save with his team leading 6-2 and two Padres on base in the ninth inning. He allowed a double and two singles, the second of which, by Yangervis Solarte, tied the game.

Rondon did induce a Wil Myers groundout with the go-ahead run on second to escape further damage.

Cubs C Miguel Montero breaks loose with two-homer game
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Cubs catcher Miguel Montero had not been making a case early this season for daily duty. That is, until Saturday.

Montero, who has only been a semi-regular this season, slammed his first two home runs of the year in a victory over San Diego. He launched one off starter Tyson Ross in the sixth and another the following inning off Chris Rearick to raise his average from .105 to .174.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon expressed his appreciation for Montero following the game - and not just for what he did on the field against the Padres.

"Miggy is always, always into the game, always," Maddon told ESPN. "I give him credit. He's a (31 year old), but this guy loves to play baseball. don't be misconceived, some guys arent always like that even if they are in the major leagues and have been baseball players. Not everyboy likes to play the game like he does. He has a true passion for it and I really appreciate that."

His first blast would have been the game-winner had the Padres not scored four in the ninth.

Bullpen blows win Saturday for Cubs RHP Hendricks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

In his first start of the season, Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks simply pitched lousy. In his second start on Saturday, he simply got screwed.

He appeared destined to win after pitching six strong innings and watching his team take a 6-2 lead into the ninth, but the bullpen blew it and the Cubs required extra innings to pull out the win.

Hendricks lowered his ERA from 10.38 to 6.10 by shutting out San Diego after a Matt Kemp two-run homer in the first. He walked none, fanned eight and retired 14 consecutive batters.

He will again seek his first victory Thursday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
