Cubs outfielder Albert Almora Jr. was placed on the Family Medical Emergency List on Sunday as he had missed the last two games against the San Diego Padres because of a medical issue with the family.

The Cubs did not go into any specifics of the family emergency.

Good news to report on Monday as Almora Jr. tweeted that the family is doing well.

"@krystalalmora is doing much better and baby #2 is kicking all over the place," he posted. "We want to thank you for all your prayers and support!!" Much love #5

The Almoras are expecting their second child in late October.
