The Cubs can use the All-Star break to get healthy
Just like last season with Dexter Fowler, the Cubs can utilize the All-Star break to get some key pieces healthy. The North Siders will likely get Heyward and Zobrist back before the break, but Hendricks and Anderson will likely remain on the DL until after the break.
If either Kris Bryant or Addison Russell hit the DL before the All-Star break, they will likely return after the festivities.
Right now, the Cubs are a bit banged up. This could be a contributing factor to their poor play thus far. Many hope that once the Cubs return all their players to full strength, they will take off. I for one hope that is the case too, but only time will tell.
For now, Cubs’ fans need to keep the faith. Remember, this team is so young and talented that they have to go on a run at some point in the near future.
