Besides the Josh Hamilton news (hand is fine, root canal is infected), here are a few other injury updates:
Good news on Warner Madrigal. The MRI he had Monday showed no structural damage, and the original diagnosis of forearm tightness stands. He will get on a throwing program and aim for a return to the mound before camp breaks.
The Rangers believe that second baseman Ian Kinsler (right ankle sprain) will be ready for Opening Day. He is still about a week out from returning to game action.
Eric Hurley is having surgery Wednesday on the broken bone in his left wrist. He's on the 60-day DL, and it's his non-throwing hand, so this isn't a massive setback as he returns from shoulder surgery last year.
Today's lineup at Cubs: Julio Borbon, cf; Elvis Andrus, ss; David Murphy, lf; Nelson Cruz, rf; Chris Davis, 1b; Matt Brown, 3b; Taylor Teagarden, c; Joaquin Arias, 2b; Neftali Feliz, p. C.J. Wilson and Pedro Strop will follow Feliz.
