Chicago Cubs reliever Pedro Stop has battled a lingering calf issue this spring as he has zero game action with only two weeks until the regular season.

Strop told reporters on Friday that the team is being precautious with his injury because they don't want any more issues.

"It wasn't a big deal until I got a little setback and then people got concerned about it," Strop said. "We are just making sure that we don't get another setback. I feel great anyway so let's see what they are planning (Cubs management)."

Strop thinks he will get in a spring game next week.

"I'm thinking Thursday or maybe Monday but we are not sure yet," he said.

In 2017, Strop recorded a 6-5 record with a 2.83 ERA, 65 strikeouts, and 1.18 WHIP while having more than 20 holds for the fifth time in his last six seasons.

Strop is very confident of the Cubs starters' ability to go deep in games this season.

"I'm pretty sure those guys are going to be throwing seven innings every game. We're (relievers) going to be asking for innings to pitch," he said.

Hopefully, Strop doesn't start the season on the disabled list but if he does, the Cubs will probably be able to add Anthony Bass or Dillon Maples on the active roster in his place.
