NFL Waiver FEATURES View All

Chris Denorfia (hamstring) took batting practice on Tuesday, but he still hasn't been cleared to play.

His hamstring issue is giving the Cubs some serious roster issues. He hasn't played since March 17th, he likely won't play before the end of spring training and that is why the Cubs may have to wait until the last minute to finalize their Opening Day roster. If Denorfia isn't healthy by opening day, expect Chris Coghlan to hold down the fort. When both players are healthy, they will platoon in left field for the Cubbies. Analysis: Colby Conway
