— Player Notes
Advice: Olt initially hurt the wrist last Saturday, but he was allowed to take a few at-bats after that because initial tests didn't reveal the hairline fracture. It's not clear how long he'll be sidelined, but with Kris Bryant up now, Olt doesn't have a path to playing time.7 hours ago Rotoworld
Advice: It was only a matter of time before Bryant staked his claim to the hot corner in Chicago, and would've happened even if Olt hadn't suffered the wrist injury. He can safely be cut in NL-only formats.

Advice: Olt was able to enter Tuesday's game as a late sub, but he is still apparently battling some lingering discomfort in his right wrist. Jonathan Herrera is starting at third base and batting ninth.

Advice: Olt flew out as a pinch-hitter in the eighth, stayed in the game for defense and then struck out to end the game in the ninth. He hadn't played since Saturday after being hit in the wrist by a pitch, but he'll be fine.Wed, Apr 15 Rotoworld
Advice: Jonathan Herrera is playing third base and batting ninth. Olt was able to go through a pregame workout Tuesday at Wrigley Field but he still has some discomfort in his right wrist, which was struck by a pitch on Saturday night in Colorado.

Advice: It sounds like Olt's right wrist was still a bit sore in pre-game workouts, so the Cubs will give him another day. Jonathan Herrera has taken his spot at third base.

Advice: Olt didn't start Sunday after being hit by a pitch in the wrist Saturday, although he was able to pinch-hit. He has just two hits in his first 13 at-bats this season, although one of them was a homer.

Advice: X-rays on Olt's right wrist came back negative after he was hit by a pitch, but he's likely still sore. He might not have been in the lineup against a righty, anyway. Jonathan Herrera is handling third base.

Advice: Olt has some swelling in the wrist and will probably sit out of Sunday's series finale in Colorado, but he should be fine by early next week. Arismendy Alcantara took over at third base on Saturday night and could draw the start there on Sunday afternoon. Kris Bryant is due to arrive in the majors on April 17.Rotoworld
Advice: Olt looked to be in a good deal of pain and will likely be sent for X-rays. He had homered earlier in the game. Arismendy Alcantara was shifted from second base to third base and Jonathan Herrera entered to handle the keystone. Kris Bryant could take over third base for good next Friday.Rotoworld
