Cease exited Thursday's outing with a lower-body injury.

The 21-year-old appeared to suffer the injury while covering third base and was ultimately removed from the contest. The severity of Cease's injury has yet to be disclosed, but as one of the Cubs' prized prospects, his status will be one to monitor. He owns a 2.23 ERA with a whopping 50 strikeouts in just 32.1 innings at Low-A South Bend this season.
