Frazier 'ready to rake' after appendectomy Friday originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Cubs outfielder Clint Frazier seemed to be recovering well enough after an appendectomy Friday that he’s already lobbying to get in the lineup.

“Got a pretty funny text back saying he’s ready to rake already,” manager David Ross said Saturday morning, “that he’s ready to go.”

Frazier is eligible to return from the 10-day injured list May 3 against the White Sox, but his timeline is anything but clear at this point.

Adam Dunn and Matt Holliday each returned from appendectomies in about a week in 2011, but that’s unusual (both stayed on active rosters during their recoveries).

Typical recovery time is at least two to three weeks. Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward, as a young Atlanta player in 2013, missed almost four weeks after an appendectomy that April.

“We’ll get an update on his recovery hopefully in the next few days,” Ross said. "He seems to be doing well."

Frazier is 3-for-21 (.143) with two doubles, two walks and five strikeouts.
