The Cubs are down right now but with 11 of their next 14 games at home starting on Tuesday and reinforcements on the way soon, the season is not over.
Here is a list of key Cubs that are currently on the injured/rehab list:
- Willson Contreras
- Craig Kimbrel
- Steve Cishek
- Ben Zobrist
- Brandon Morrow
Contreras is expected to be back in early September, Kimbrel and Cishek potentially this month, Zobrist will be back soon from his rehab, and Morrow who could be back just in time for the final stretch of regular-season games.
Those 5 Cubs tremendously help solidify the offense and bullpen which have been not been strong suits as of late.
Only 1.0 game out of the NL Central division race with an experienced roster and playoff success, the Cubs are not out nor will be anytime soon.
