MX News Update 2024


Seiya Suzuki’s first rehab game is in the books (and it looked good!)

The Chicago Cubs are on the mend. Justin Steele and Cody Bellinger returned to the team this week and it looks like Seiya Suzuki isn’t far behind them.

Suzuki began a rehab assignment at Iowa today and had an impressive day, going 2-2 with a walk and a pair of runs scored before being pinch-hit to end his day. He also swiped a bag, which is a pretty good sign for a player recovering from an oblique strain.

Here’s Suzuki’s first hit, a single on an 0-2 count that scored Darius Hill (no RBI since Hill scored on an error):

Suzuki would score two batters later on an Owen Caissie home run. Here’s that bombshell from Caissie, in case you missed it.

Owen Caissie’s home run brings home Seiya Suzuki!

Suzuki picked up another single in the bottom of the second inning on a line drive to center field. Suzuki then led off the bottom of the fourth with a walk and promptly stole second base before scoring on a fielder’s choice.

It was quite an encouraging day for Seiya, who is expected to play again tomorrow at Iowa before returning to Chicago for the Cubs series with the Pirates this weekend.
