Clint Frazier of the Chicago Cubs Has Appendicitis

The Chicago Cubs have placed Clint Frazier on the injured list, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The good news for Frazier is that this injury is nothing neurological, something he dealt with when he was a member of the New York Yankees. With the Yankees, Frazier suffered a concussion which led to possible vertigo, although the team never released a complete diagnosis. This time, however, it’s appendicitis that has shelved Frazier. Assuming there are no complications, Frazier should be able to return to the Cubs in 10 days.

Speaking of the Cubs, their game Friday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates has been moved from a 2:20 P.M. start to an 8:06 P.M. start because of rain.

The Cubs will start Jose Quintana while the Pirates counter with Drew Smyly. The Cubs are +108 (-1.5) on the run line and -184 on the money line, with an over/under of eight, over (-108), and under (-112).
