Cubs | Ryan Sweeney has fractured rib

Updating a previous report, Chicago Cubs OF Ryan Sweeney (rib) sustained a fractured left rib after running into the outfield wall Saturday, June 29, in a game against the Seattle Mariners. He will not be allowed to do baseball activities for four to six weeks and will be placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: For now, the light-hitting Julio Borbon figures to get the bulk of the starts in center field for the Cubs. He offers solid defense and good speed on the bases but not much else, so he should only be considered in deep NL-only leagues.
