Player Notes
Justin Ruggiano will miss the remainder of the 2014 season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle.

Advice: Ruggiano wasn't likely to make it back before the end of the season had he opted to rest and rehab instead, so the surgery makes sense. It also allows uber-prospect Jorge Soler to man right field for the remainder of the season.

Justin Ruggiano will see a specialist for his sprained left ankle this week in Dallas.

Advice: Ruggiano has been out since last Friday and isn't making much progress, so the Cubs will try to get a more exact diagnosis. Jorge Soler was promoted from Triple-A Iowa when Ruggiano was placed on the disabled list and the talented 22-year-old is expected to finish out the 2014 season as Chicago's everyday right fielder. Ruggiano will return as a bench bat, if he returns at all.

Cubs placed OF Justin Ruggiano on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 23, with a sprained left ankle.

Advice: Ruggiano was due for a drop in playing time, anyway, with the promotion of Jorge Soler. He'll be a bench bat when he returns next month.

Justin Ruggiano (ankle) missed his third straight start Tuesday.

Advice: Ruggiano is nursing a sore left ankle. "He's still managing it," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "We'll see how to proceed with him. It's day to day." While Ruggiano's injury might not be serious, he's due for a big dip in playing time with Jorge Soler slated for a promotion on Wednesday.
