There was a bit of a mysterious situation early in Thursday’s series finale between the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates.

After Chicago starter Justin Steele threw his first pitch in the bottom of the first inning, trainers for both clubs ran out to the Cubs bullpen. Whenever trainers get involved, it’s safe to assume there is some type of medical issue.

Manager David Ross went out to talk with the umpires during the delay. After a few minutes of discussion, play resumed without a word as to what happened. Hopefully, it was nothing too serious.
