Craig Kimbrel Throws 16 Pitches in Sim Game, Possible Return This Weekend

Craig Kimbrel worked off the Wrigley Field mound Tuesday afternoon. The Cubs closer was placed on the injured list with right elbow inflammation on September 5th. All the reports from today’s outing sounded positive, and the Cubs are hoping to get Kimbrel back sometime this weekend, though there is still no definitive timeline.

If Kimbrel’s body responds well to today’s work on Wednesday, the Cubs may have a clearer picture on when exactly we can expect Craig back in the Cubs bullpen. Needless to say, a healthy Craig Kimbrel would be quite helpful as the Cubs get ready for this final stretch of the season.
