Player Notes
Mike Olt (wrist) said Saturday that he expects to need 3-4 weeks of rest before beginning rehab work.

Advice: Olt is sporting a cast after suffering a hairline fracture in his right wrist. Considering that it might be a month before he's allowed to begin rehabbing the wrist, it sounds like the chances are good that he'll be out until June. With Kris Bryant now up, Olt no longer has a clear path to playing time.

Cubs placed 3B Mike Olt on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 15, with a hairline fracture in his right wrist.

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.

According to Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago, Mike Olt (wrist) will be placed on the disabled list to create room on the big league roster for Kris Bryant.

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.

Mike Olt (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Wednesday against the Reds.

Mike Olt (wrist) appeared as a pinch-hitter in Tuesday's loss to the Reds.

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
Mike Olt (wrist) is out of the Cubs' starting lineup again on Tuesday against the Reds.

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.

Mike Olt (wrist) was scratched from Monday's lineup.

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.

Mike Olt (wrist) is back in the Cubs' lineup Monday.

Mike Olt (wrist) is not in Sunday's lineup.

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.

X-rays taken Saturday on Mike Olt's right wrist showed no fracture of any kind.

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.
