Chicago Cubs at San Diego Padres MLB Matchup
As Joe Maddon discussed the state of his Chicago Cubs on Monday afternoon in San Diego before the opener of a four-game series against the Padres, he sounded more like a triage medic than a major league manager.
“Kris had a cortisone shot in his knee,” said Maddon, explaining why the slugger who went to the University of San Diego would miss Monday’s opener and was questionable for Tuesday.
As Maddon was speaking, Cubs shortstop Addison Russell was going through Major League Baseball’s concussion protocol with physicians. Meanwhile, Chicago’s other injured shortstop, Javy Baez, saw a team hand specialist and was told the fracture in his thumb will likely sideline him for the rest of September.
