In the bottom of the third inning against the Mets Friday night, Cubs center fielder David Dejesus collided with the outfield wall while trying to track down a Juan Lagares fly ball. The collision forced DeJesus to leave the game and underwent X-rays on his shoulder, reports Matt Ehalt of ESPNChicago.com.
DeJesus was visibly in pain and clutching his right shoulder following the collision as manager Dale Sveum and the training staff rushed to him. After several minutes he left the field and was replaced by Ryan Sweeney.
DeJesus is hitting .258/.316/.434 in 215 plate appearances for the Cubs this season with six home runs and 18 runs batted in. If he does need to miss extended time as a result of this injury, his in-game replacement Ryan Sweeney is the player most likely to see increased playing time as a result. Sweeney is hitting .345/.406/.500 over 64 plate appearances this season and is generally regarded as a strong defender. The Cubs also have another replacement option in Julio Borbon on their bench.

Twitter is easily my favorite social media site. It’s the best place to get news and cool stories while allowing for just enough broadcasting that you actually get news from outside your chosen cone if you engage with it. Still, I usually hate twitter controversies. Bill Simmons is “angry” with ESPN again? Boo. Football players aren’t, en masse, erudite and inspiring thinkers...
