  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Undergoes surgery

    Mills underwent a procedure to remove part of a disc in his back Wednesday, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports. Mills has been dealing with a lower-back strain since early July and was transferred to the 60-day injured list in late August. The right-hander's procedure was successful, but it seems likely that he'll be held out for the remainder of the season, especially since the Cubs aren't in postseason contention.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Shifts to 60-day injured list

    Mills (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. The move should have no impact on Mills' return date, as he's been out with a lower-back strain since early July. He'll be eligible to return within a week but seems unlikely to do so, as he's yet to embark on a rehab assignment. The move clears space on the 40-man roster for Manuel Rodriguez (elbow) to return from his own trip to the 60-day injured list.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Making progress

    Mills (back) is headed to the Cubs' spring training complex in Arizona "to begin building up," Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. It's unclear exactly what Mills' next step is, but this is the first update on his status since he landed on the injured list in early July. He will have a chance to return to action before the season ends, but it will likely be as a reliever.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Back issue forces trip to IL

    The Cubs placed Mills on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a lower-back strain, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Mills picked up the injury just seven pitches into his start in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Red Sox. Mark Leiter stepped up in long relief and struck out five over 5.1 innings en route to capturing the win, so he could be the most logical candidate to enter the rotation as a replacement for Mills. The Cubs will likely hold Mills out through the All-Star break with the back injury, and he's not expected to return to the rotation once activated. Chicago should get at least one of its other injured starters (Marcus Stroman, Wade Miley and Drew Smyly) back before Mills is ready to go.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Leaves with back pain

    Mills left Saturday's game against the Red Sox with lower-back pain, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Just seven pitches into his start Saturday, Mills hunched over in pain and ultimately left the field. The Cubs later provided specifics, although it's uncertain whether Mills is in danger of missing additional time. Mark Leiter entered Saturday's game in relief and could step in for a spot start next week if MIlls is unable to go.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Gets another start

    Mills will start Saturday's home game against the Red Sox. Mills replaced Matt Swarmer in the rotation last weekend in St. Louis, and like Swarmer before him, the 30-year-old proved vulnerable to the long ball. He served up three home runs en route to taking a loss to the Cardinals, giving up five earned runs on six hits and one walk across 2.2 innings. Mills will get a chance to redeem himself Saturday, but regardless of how he performs against the Red Sox or in any starts that might follow, he'll be at risk of moving back to the bullpen as soon as one of Marcus Stroman (shoulder), Drew Smyly (oblique) or Wade Miley (shoulder) returns from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Rocked by home runs

    Mills gave up five earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out one over 2.2 innings in a 6-5 extra-inning win over the Cardinals on Sunday. He did not factor into the decision. Mills made his first start of the year and was pummeled by three home runs, which chased him from the game in the third inning. The 30-year-old low-leverage middle reliever had come into the game with an 8.59 ERA, so expectations were very low. The Cubs managed to claw back and win the game in extra innings, but their chances of winning won't be very good if they have to depend on Mills to start games. Despite a plethora of injuries to Cubs starters Marcus Stroman (shoulder), Drew Smyly (oblique) and Wade Miley (shoulder), Mills will likely return to his role as a bullpen innings-eater after his poor performance.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Starting Sunday

    Mills will start Sunday's game against the Cardinals. All five of Mills' outings in the big leagues this year have come out of the bullpen, but he'll make his first start of the campaign. The right-hander last pitched Monday in long relief and surrendered five runs over 4.1 innings, so he's fairly well stretched out. He's given up 14 earned runs on 21 hits with a 9:2 K:BB across 14.2 frames this season, so Sunday's outing may only be a spot start.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Gets pounded Monday

    Mills allowed five runs on eight hits across 4.1 innings of relief during Monday's loss to the Pirates. He had no walks and struck out two. Chicago starter Caleb Kilian allowed seven runs (five earned) across 2.1 innings to take the loss, but Mills didn't fare much better. The veteran righty now has an unsightly 8.59 ERA this season, and he won't have much fantasy value as long as he's out of the rotation and pitching poorly. Mills started 20 games for the Cubs in 2021 but all five of his appearances so far this year have come in relief.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Takes first loss Friday

    Mills (0-1) allowed the winning run in the bottom of the 13th inning Friday to take the loss against the Yankees. He retired two batters and also allowed a hit and an intentional walk. With a runner starting the inning on second base, Mills got off to a strong start with two quick outs. The Cubs then decided to intentionally walk Aaron Hicks, but Jose Trevino delivered the winning run on a sharp single to left field. This was just the second appearance of the season for Mills, who was sidelined with a back strain in April. The righty could start games at some point, as he made 31 starts for the Cubs over the past two years, but so far he's worked as a reliever.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Reinstated Tuesday

    Mills (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Mills recently made four rehab starts and posted a 4.97 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 12.2 innings. He's served mainly as a starter for the Cubs over the last two seasons but will pitch out of the bullpen after being activated from the IL. However, the right-hander will be a top candidate to serve as a spot starter or enter the rotation at some point if needed.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Another rehab start on tap

    Mills (back) will make another rehab start at Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Mills has made three rehab starts during his current stint with the Triple-A club, and he's posted a 3.72 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 9.2 innings. The right-hander is eligible to return from the 60-day injured list as early as Monday, but he'll have at least one more opportunity for a tune-up in the minors prior to rejoining the Cubs. Assuming he feels good following Tuesday's outing, it's possible he's reinstated from the injured list as early as next weekend.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Another rehab start coming Friday

    Mills (back) will throw a three-inning rehab start Friday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. He is expected to throw 55 pitches in this outing after throwing 43 pitches in 2.1 innings in his prior rehab start. Given that Mills is ineligible to be activated from the 60-day injured list until June 8, it seems likely that he will make at least one more rehab start after Friday's scheduled outing.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Completes rehab start

    Mills (back) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa on Sunday with a start against Columbus. He worked 2.1 innings and gave up one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in Iowa's 5-2 loss. Mills pitched in a game for the first time since April 23, when he experienced quad tightness that resulted in him being pulled off his initial rehab assignment at Iowa for the ensuing month. He tossed 43 pitches (25 strikes) on Sunday, but he'll still likely need at least two more rehab starts before the Cubs entertain bringing him back from the 60-day injured list. Before he was placed on the IL shortly before Opening Day, Mills looked to be in good position to claim a rotation spot for the Cubs, but he might have to settle for a long-relief role once he's formally activated.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Mills (back) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Mills was cleared to face hitters this weekend and threw a bullpen session Thursday, but he'll now be moved to the 60-day injured list to make room on the 40-man roster. The right-hander will likely require several rehab games before rejoining the Cubs, so Thursday's transaction is unlikely to alter his recovery timetable.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Advancing to face live hitters

    Mills (back/quadriceps) is scheduled to throw live batting practice Sunday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. The right-hander has been throwing bullpen sessions for the past week and will now progress to facing live batters. Mills has yet to see MLB action this season due to the back and quadriceps injuries, so he figures to require a multi-game rehab stint in the minors before joining the Cubs.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Throwing bullpen sessions

    Mills (back/quadriceps) will throw a couple more bullpen sessions before beginning a rehab assignment, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. The right-hander began a rehab assignment in late April before experiencing quadriceps tightness, but he recently resumed mound work and is again progressing toward his return. Mills figures to require a multi-game stint in the minors to continue building up his workload once he's cleared for game action.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Nearing mound work

    Mills (back/quadriceps) will throw off a mound within the next few days before being re-evaluated, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. It's been a slow ramp up for Mills, as he recently resumed playing catch after suffering a setback with his quad while he was making rehab starts in an effort to return from a back injury. He could resume a rehab assignment in the coming weeks if all goes well.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Resumes playing catch

    Mills (back/quadriceps) has resumed playing catch, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Mills sustained a setback in his recovery last week due to right quadriceps tightness, but he's now resumed a throwing program. However, it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to the minors to continue his rehab assignment. The right-hander will likely need to complete at least one bullpen session before he's cleared for game action.

  • Cubs' Alec Mills: Suffers setback with quad

    Mills (back) isn't scheduled to make his second minor-league rehab start this week after he experienced right quadriceps tightness during a workout Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Mills, who opened the season on the 10-day injured list with a lower-back strain, made his first rehab start at Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, striking out five over three innings while allowing three earned runs on eight hits and no walks. He was expected to take the hill again for Iowa this week, but the quad issue will result in him being shut down for at least the next couple of days. The Cubs may want to see Mills make it through a bullpen session without discomfort before adding him back to the minor-league pitching schedule.
