The Chicago Cubs are not only losing on Thursday, but they have lost a member of their lineup as well. In Thursday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, OF Seiya Suzuki left the game after spraining his finger while sliding into second base on a steal.
After a single in the third inning of Thursday’s game, Seiya Suzuki stole second base. However, when sliding into second, Suzuki tried to get his body out of the way of the throw. In the process of doing that, he slid into second awkwardly, slamming his left hand off the bag.
Subsequently, the awkward slide required the Cubs’ trainer and manager David Ross to check on the outfielder. He ultimately left the game and was replaced by Rafael Ortega.
At this point, there is no update on Suzuki’s status. However, if the sprain is significant enough, he may require a trip to the Injured List in order to get healthy. Although the team is getting healthier, losing Suzuki is a major loss for the Cubs.
