Cubs News: Injury updates for Dansby Swanson, Nick Madrigal, Adrian Sampson, Nick Burdi

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs have been dealing with a few injury concerns lately, but there's some positive news on the horizon.

Dansby Swanson, Nick Madrigal, Adrian Sampson, and Nick Burdi are all making progress in their respective recoveries.

Swanson has been nursing a left heel injury, but there's good news for Cubs fans as he continues to improve. During the break, Swanson was seen hitting and throwing, indicating that he is making strides towards a full recovery.

He is not in tonight's lineup against the Boston Red Sox.

Madrigal is working towards resuming jogging and light baseball activities, indicating that he is gradually getting closer to returning to the field.

Pitcher Adrian Sampson is set to take the mound for the Iowa Cubs tomorrow.

While his performance in Iowa will help determine his readiness for a potential call-up to the big leagues, having another option available in the pitching rotation will provide depth and flexibility for the team.

Relief pitcher Nick Burdi recently threw a bullpen session, marking a positive step forward in his recovery.
