On April 18, the Cubs placed third baseman Mike Olt on the 60-day disabled list after fracturing his wrist.
Olt was hit by a pitch on April 11, but thought it was a bruise and tried to continue playing, but an MRI found a hairline fracture in his right wrist.

The Cubs third baseman, who’s hitting .133 with one home run and one RBI before getting hurt, documents his return with Twitter videos over the past month. Olt posted a video on Sunday of him hitting balls in the batting cage with the caption: “Another day closer.”
