  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Live BP session on tap

    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.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Runs bases Saturday

    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. Although he's made good progress this week, it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to game action.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Hits in live batting practice

    Madrigal (groin) hit in live batting practice Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    He suffered a left groin strain on June 10, and will have several other checkpoints to clear before being activated. Madrigal will have to advance to fielding and running drills and may require a rehab assignment.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Forced to IL with groin strain

    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.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Still sidelined

    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.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Remains out

    Madrigal (groin) remains on the bench Monday against the Padres.

    Madrigal left Friday's game against the Yankees with groin tightness and didn't appear in either of the next two games. He was considered day-to-day as recently as Sunday, so it's possible he'll be back in action soon, but it will again be Jonathan Villar at second base Monday.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Remains sidelined

    Madrigal (groin) will sit Sunday against the Yankees.

    Madrigal left Friday's series opener with groin tightness and did not appear in Saturday's contest. He's considered day-to-day, per Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune. Jonathan Villar will handle second base Sunday.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Exits with groin tightness

    Madrigal was removed from Friday's loss to the Yankees due to groin tightness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Madrigal started Friday's matchup and went 2-for-5 with a strikeout prior to his departure in the bottom of the 12th inning. He should tentatively be considered day-to-day, but Andrelton Simmons and Jonathan Villar are likely in line for additional playing time if Madrigal misses time.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Gets breather Friday

    Madrigal is not starting in Friday's game versus the Cardinals.

    Madrigal will get a day off after starting three straight games following his return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, going 3-for-9 with two runs over those contests. Christopher Morel will get the start at second base while Rafael Ortega enters the lineup in center field and bats second Friday.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Scores in return

    Madrigal (back) went 1-for-2 with a run scored in an 8-7 win Tuesday over Milwaukee.

    Madrigal returned as a pinch hitter in the fifth inning and stayed in the game, playing second base. He singled and scored in the sixth on P.J. Higgins' home run. It was his first appearance for the Cubs since May 9. Between his stint on the injured list and his .503 OPS, Madrigal's first season on the northside of Chicago has left much to be desired. With Andrelton Simmons and Christopher Morel each receiving time at the keystone in Madrigal's absence, there's no guarantee he will receive the bulk of the playing time now that he's healthy.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Returns from injured list

    Madrigal (back) was activated off the injured list Tuesday.

    Madrigal had been out since early May with lower-back tightness, but he's good to go after appearing in a pair of rehab games. He won't immediately re-enter the lineup, however, and it remains to be seen how he'll fit into the picture at second base going forward. Andrelton Simmons will start at that spot Tuesday, with Nico Hoerner serving as the shortstop.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Set to start rehab assignment

    Madrigal (back) will start a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Madrigal has been out with back tightness since May 10, but resumed on-field work Tuesday and is now set to start his rehab assignment this weekend. He'll likely appear in multiple games in Triple-A before rejoining to the big-league roster, potentially returning to the Cubs during their four-game series versus the Brewers early next week. With Andrelton Simmons now shifted over to second base, he stands to see a lesser role once Madrigal is activated from the injured list.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Takes part in all baseball drills

    Madrigal (back) took part in hitting, fielding, running and throwing drills during an on-field workout Tuesday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Fellow injured middle infielder Nico Hoerner (ankle) also performed the same activities, as both look to be at similar spots in their respective rehab programs. Madrigal and Hoerner could both be ready to begin minor-league rehab assignments later this week before potentially returning from the 10-day injured list by the end of the month. Though both Madrigal and Hoerner handled everyday roles for the Cubs prior to hitting the shelf, the two may have to fend off Andrelton Simmons and Jonathan Villar for starts in the middle infield once they're back from the IL.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Still in rehab mode

    Madrigal (back) remains limited to rehab work since being placed on the 10-day injured list May 10, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    With Madrigal having yet to resume baseball activities more than a week after landing on the IL, it's clear he'll be sidelined beyond the minimum 10 days. A potential target date likely won't emerge until he's able to do at least some on-field activity. Before hitting the shelf, Madrigal was offering little to get excited about from a fantasy standpoint, as he was hitting .203 with zero home runs, five runs, two RBI and one stolen base through 84 plate appearances on the season.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Madrigal is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres.

    Madrigal is 0-for-11 over his past four games and will take a seat Tuesday. Jonathan Villar will man the keystone in Madrigal's place.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Out with back tightness

    Madrigal was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with lower-back tightness, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    According to Montemurro, Madrigal felt the tightness during Monday's contest, and he'll now be sidelined for at least the next 10 days. Ildemaro Vargas will join the big-league club as infield depth in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: On bench for nightcap

    Madrigal will sit for the second part of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers.

    Madrigal went 0-for-3 in the first game of the day, dropping his season average to .225. Jonathan Villar will get the start at second base in the nightcap.

  • Cubs' Nick Madrigal: Reaches twice, swipes base

    Madrigal went 2-for-3 with a stolen base Wednesday in a loss to the White Sox.

    The Cubs got most of their production Wednesday out of the bottom of the order, as No. 8 and No. 9 hitters Patrick Wisdom and Madrigal combined for four of the team's five hits. The latter also swiped his first base of the campaign in the second inning. Madrigal is batting just .235 on the season, but he may be heating up, as he's gone 6-for-18 (.333) over his past five games.
