Martínez will be available for the Cubs tonight when they conclude their three-game series against the Minnesota Twins at Wrigley Field.
The Minnesota Twins put an end to the Chicago Cubs' five-game winning streak with a lopsided victory at Wrigley Field.
Wick, 27, has gone 0-1 with a 3.12 ERA (6 ER/17.1 IP) in 19 relief outings with the Cubs this season.
Striking out a season-high 10 batters, Kyle "The Professor" Hendricks schooled the Twins in his dominant eight-inning outing. Hendricks struck out 10, and the Cubs won the low-scoring affair.
Don't look now, but the Cubs have extended their lead in the NL Central to 5.5 games with just 10 games left to play.
Jon Lester’s career in Chicago featured two top-ten Cy Young finishes, including a top-two finish in 2016. The left-hander as also made two all-star games and also led the National league in wins once.
That may have been one of the more exciting two-game series you can have as the Cubs completed the Indians' mini-sweep.
If the Cubs fail to pick up Lester’s option in 2021, last night will have marked Jon’s last start at Wrigley Field.
Baseball is in full-blown postseason mode so we will be discussing the state of Chicago baseball along with how the postseason bubble will affect things in the postseason.
