OF Chris Denorfia hitting sixth for Cubs


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(7/27/2015) Left fielder Chris Denorfia will hop back into the lineup for the Cubs on Monday, landing sixth in the team's lineup as they take on the Rockies. 

Denorfia has alternated starts with fellow outfielder Chris Coghlan and Denorfia might have gotten the nod Monday simply due to experience against Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. 

While Denorfia is hitting just .250 against De La Rosa, he does have 24 plate appearances against the veteran pitcher, far more than anyone else in the young Cubs' lineup.

(5/5/2015) Cubs outfielder Chris Denorfia will head to the disabled list due to a hamstring injury, according to MLB.com.

Cubs give RF Jorge Soler day off Monday vs. Cardinals


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/4/2015) Cubs right fielder Jorge Soler was given the day off on Monday against the Cardinals. Soler had started each of the Cubs' first 23 games of the season, and with just seven hits in his last 34 at-bats, he seemed due for a rest, though he is riding a modest three-game hitting streak.

Manager Joe Maddon said that while Monday's break was just to give the right fielder a breather, the team will monitor him as the weather heats up, ESPN reports. Soler has previously dealt with leg issues.

"Dehydration is the thing I'm always concerned with," Maddon said. "The hotter it gets the more and more I'm worried about that kind of a thing. We have to be really proactive the next couple of weeks making sure we don't run anyone into the ground."

Chris Denorfia replaced Soler in right field, while Chris Coghlan moved up to the second spot in manager Joe Maddon's batting order.

After making a few pinch-hit appearances, he played most of three games in three consecutive days but has seen just one at-bat since that extended work, as he has dealt with continued hamstring issues as well as a foot injury.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Denorfia has not played since March 17, due to a hamstring injury, and time is running out. 

"Opening Day is still in jeopardy," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "You have to figure that out when you fill out the roster, too."

Unknown if Cubs OF Chris Denorfia will be ready for Opening Day


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Cubs outfielder Chris Denorfia took batting practice Monday, though his status for Opening Day is still in question. 

Denorfia has a sore left hamstring he's recovering from and is expected to participate in a minor-league game mid-week. However, there's still a chance he's not ready to be with the Cubs when the regular season starts. 

"I don’t like to speculate on things like that,” Denorfia said, via MLB.com. “When you’re rehabbing anything can happen. As long as everything progresses the way it should, [I should be ready] sometime around that time. The goal is to be ready by then.”


Cubs' Chris Denorfia might play in minor-league games next week


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2015) Cubs outfielder Chris Denorfia, who has not appeared in a spring game since March 17 due to a sore left hamstring, might start playing in minor-league games next week, per MLB.com.

Denorfia will most likely not be ready to play in the regular-season opener.

"Opening Day is probably in jeopardy," manager Joe Maddon said Thursday.

Denorfia ran at about 40 percent Thursday and has been making progress.

"There's no sense in rushing anything," Maddon said. "When you're talking about [hamstring injuries], and guys try to push 'hammies' too quickly, then you end up with a longer healing process."
