Steve Cishek Carted Away After Taking Throw to Knee, Initial Reports Positive

Because of course this would happen to one of the Cubs’ most consistent relievers. While playing catch — apparently he missed the operative word — with Brandon Kintzler in the outfield prior to Wednesday’s game, Steve Cishek was hit by a throw and went down like a sack of potatoes.

Cishek was carted off the field, which signals something pretty significant, but the initial reports said it was nothing more than a bruise and that he might not miss any time. Which means he’ll hit the IL tomorrow and be lost for the season, of course. Just kidding, he’ll probably be fine. But still, thanks, Kintzler.
