Ryan Sweeney: Fractured Rib

Update: Sweeney has been diagnosed with a fractured left rib and will cease baseball activity for 4-6 weeks, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: What was first called a contusion, after an initial X-ray came back negative, has now been deemed a fracture, and Sweeney will be on the shelf for more than a month. He's headed for the DL, but the Cubs will wait until Tuesday before making any roster moves. Brian Bogusevic is getting the start in center field for Chicago on Sunday, and it seems he'll see most of the work there until Sweeney's back.
