|Ryan Sweeney, Justin Ruggiano key Cubs win |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/4/14) The Cubs received tremendous production from their first two hitters Friday in a defeat of Washington - and both of them roamed the outfield.
Leadoff hitter Ryan Sweeney and Justin Ruggiano, who batted behind him, combined for five hits and five runs. The latter slugged a solo homer in the third and run-scoring single in the ninth.
Ruggiano has been on a tear with 12 hits in his last 27 at-bats and has blasted off in successive games.
|Cubs activate Ryan Sweeney, place Emilio Bonifacio on DL |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/13/14) The Cubs activated outfielder Ryan Sweeney from the 15-day disabled list and placed infielder/outfielder Emilio Bonifacio on the 15-day DL with right rib cage inflammation, the team announced.
|Ryan Sweeney begins rehab assignment |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(6/9/14) Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney began a rehab assignment with Class A Kane County Monday, going 0 for 2 with one walk before being removed.
Sweeney has been sidelined since May 2 while recovering from a hamstring injury. He's 11 for 55 with with six RBI in 20 games played.
|Ryan Sweeney was at his best in the two months before fracturing his rib last season, hitting .295 with four home runs and an .868 OPS in 112 at-bats. Two factors kept him from mattering in mixed leagues, though: He sat against left-handed pitchers, and his numbers were hard to believe given his track record. Granted, he had spent most of his career before then in poor parks for left-handed hitters, but still, he had yet to hit even double-digit home runs in a season. Sure enough, he returned to hit .225 with a .638 OPS in September, ending thoughts of a breakout before they even started. At age 29, he remains a decent contact hitter and could get a healthy number of at-bats in a platoon with Justin Ruggiano, but the Cubs won't hesitate to send him to the bench when they feel they have someone better. Sweeney might be worth a late look in NL-only Rotisserie leagues for help in batting average, but you shouldn't count on him for more than that.
