After staying relatively healthy last season, the Chicago Cubs are dealing with many injuries in 2017
One of the keys to the Chicago Cubs‘ magical run in 2016 was their health. Last season, four Cubs’ starters made at least 30 starts, with John Lackey making 29. However, the Cubs’ health extended past the starting rotation in 2016. Six position players appeared in at least 140 games, with two more appearing in at least 100.
This season, however, it has been a different story for the reigning World Series champions. Currently, the Cubs have four players on the DL and two more who are dealing with some injury.
Let’s dive deeper into who is on the DL, and when they might be expected back.
