Injury updates: Marisnick 'doing well,' Mills to throw 'pen originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

David Ross on Tuesday provided updates on several Cubs currently sidelined with injuries.

Jake Marisnick, who hit the injured list with a right hamstring strain last Tuesday, has started lightly running and is "doing well," according to Ross. The valuable fourth outfielder is hitting .264/.350/.623 in 27 games.

Marisnick passed by the manager's office Tuesday with a smile on his face, Ross said.

"I think he’s happy with how things are progressing," the manager added.

Ross also noted Trevor Megill will throw a bullpen and Alec Mills has a light bullpen scheduled on Thursday. Megill hit the IL on April 30 with a right forearm strain after two scoreless outings, the first appearances of his big league career.

Mills landed on the IL Sunday with a lower back strain after allowing three earned runs in 1 2/3 innings Saturday vs. Detroit.

"For the most part, everybody seems to be on track," Ross said.
