Neftali Feliz restarted his minor-league rehab assignment last night after putting things on hold for a bit due to triceps tendinitis, throwing a scoreless inning at Triple-A.
Feliz threw 17 pitches and struck out two batters, although how his arm feels today is a lot more important than the results he got last night.
Twice last week Feliz tried to warm up for a rehab appearance only to shut things down with elbow discomfort, later undergoing various tests before the Rangers deemed him ready to resume throwing.
Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports that Cubs shortstop Addison Russell stayed overnight in Denver after having an allergic reaction to something he ate from the postgame spread in the clubhouse at Coors Field after Sunday afternoon’s game. Russell spent a couple of hours at a hospital in Denver for observation on Sunday night.
Russell has a shellfish allergy and believes something he ate might have been mistakenly labeled as not having shrimp in it.
The Cubs took two of three games from the Rockies. After Monday’s day off, the Cubs open a brief two-game series in Cleveland for a rematch of the 2016 World Series. Russell flew with the team to Cleveland and believes he will be in good enough shape to play on Tuesday.
Russell, 24, has had a slow start to the season. He’s hitting .219/.324/.281 across 74 plate appearances.
