Cubs Promote OF Narciso Crook, Jason Heyward to 10-Day IL, Michael Hermosillo to 60-Day IL

Outfielder Narciso Crook has been tearing it up at Triple-A and it appears as though he’s being rewarded for a strong first half. He’s with the Cubs for the series finale and Jason Heyward has been placed on the injured list with his lingering knee issue. Because, you know, the Cubs are apparently obligated to play a man down for several games before actually using the IL.

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Advances to live BP

Hermosillo (quadriceps) is scheduled to take live batting practice Thursday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Hermosillo has recently been able to take part in running, throwing and hitting drills without experiencing any setbacks, and he'll hit another meaningful benchmark in his recovery from the left quad strain by facing live pitching. The 27-year-old is without a clear timeline to return from the 10-day injured list, and because he won't be in line for an everyday role once activated, the Cubs could take their time with Hermosillo and send him out on an extended rehab assignment once he's deemed ready for game action.

Cubs Roster Update: Clint Frazier Activated, Michael Hermosillo to IL, Brandon Hughes Back to I-Cubs

The Cubs active roster has been a real-life merry-go-round that’s been a little hard to keep track of. A lot going on with injuries, COVID, DFAs, promotions, and the like. Today, Michael Hermosillo has been removed from the non-designated IL (COVID) and is now right back on the 10-day IL with his prior quad injury. Brandon Hughes, who was never on the 40-man due to replacing a non-designated IL player, is being sent back to Iowa. And we may not see Hughes back up anytime soon since he remains off the 40-man.

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Shifts to COVID-19 IL

Hermosillo (quadriceps) was transferred to the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Hermosillo landed on the 10-day IL last week with a strained left quad, but he's now been moved to the COVID-19 IL. The 27-year-old isn't expected to resume baseball activities for at least a couple weeks, so he'll return to the regular injured list once he clears the COVID protocols.

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Out with quad strain

Hermosillo was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left quadriceps strain. The move is retroactive to May 8. Hermosillo hasn't seen the field since going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts during Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers, and he'll now be sidelined by the quad injury. According to Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune, the 27-year-old won't resume baseball activities for at least a few weeks, so he'll be on the shelf for more than a month.

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Picks up start

Hermosillo is starting in center field and batting eighth in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Los Angeles is starting lefty Clayton Kershaw, so the Cubs will send both Rafael Ortega and Jason Heyward to the bench, at least to begin the game. Hermosillo hasn't done much at the plate so far this season with just a .083/.290/.125 slash line across 24 at-bats.

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Rough day at plate Saturday

Hermosillo went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in Saturday's loss to the Brewers. Hermosillo struggled in this one, which has been a theme this season, as he's now batting just .083 through 24 at-bats. The 27-year-old theoretically makes up the short side of a platoon with Jason Heyward in center field, but his struggles could cost him playing time moving forward. Rafael Ortega is also in the mix in center, making it a messy situation for fantasy managers.

Michael Hermosillo Just Made an Incredible Catch, Crashing Into the Wall, Making Marcus Stroman Smile

Having biffed a single into an extra run and a little-league triple earlier in the night, Michael Hermosillo was on his horse to make up for it in center field. He made a really nice running-backwards catch just shy of the wall in center, and I thought that was gonna be his makeup for the earlier play. But nope. He made an even better catch that had me (and Marcus Stroman) VERY impressed:

Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Option for platoon in center

Hermosillo could work on the weak side of a center field platoon with Jason Heyward this season, with Rafael Ortega also in the mix, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports. Heyward, who is playing center after the arrival of Seiya Suzuki in right, is the most veteran option. Ortega,...

How — and where — do Michael Hermosillo, Clint Frazier and Rafael Ortega fit? Assessing the Chicago Cubs’ outfield logjam.

Michael Hermosillo drilled the ball to the left-center field gap at the Peoria Sports Complex and didn’t stop running. As Hermosillo’s helmet popped off coming around first base, San Diego Padres center fielder José Azocar mishandled fielding the ball. The error allowed Hermosillo to turn his double into a Little League home run, punctuated by getting hit on his left temple on the relay throw ...
