Madrigal (groin) is scheduled to take part in live batting practice Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. The live batting practice session could mark the final hurdle that Madrigal needs to clear in his recovery from a left groin strain before he heads out on a minor-league rehab assignment. David Bote (shoulder) and Christopher Morel have been picking up most of the work at second base of late for the big club, but Madrigal should reclaim a near-everyday role in the middle infield once he's activated from the 10-day injured list.
Madrigal (groin) participated in baserunning drills Saturday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Madrigal hit in live batting practice Tuesday and took another step in his recovery by running the bases ahead of Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

The Cubs placed Madrigal on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left groin strain, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Madrigal will head to the injured list for the second time this season after previously missing time in May due to back tightness. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft missed the entire second half of the 2021 campaign while recovering from hamstring surgery, so the Cubs have received just 115 plate appearances since he was acquired from the White Sox at last year's trade deadline. While Madrigal is on the shelf, Jonathan Villar looks to be first in line for reps at second base.
Madrigal (groin) remains on the bench Tuesday against the Padres. Madrigal exited Friday's game against the Yankees with groin tightness and hasn't played since then. He's seemingly still day-to-day, as he hasn't been placed on the injured list, but he'll sit here for the fourth straight game as Jonathan Villar remains the starter at second base.
