Cubs Sweeney Has Broken Rib

SEATTLE (AP) - Chicago Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney

will be placed on the disabled list after breaking a rib on his left side crashing

into an outfield wall.

Chicago

made the announcement yesterday, a day after he was hurt, and said Sweeney will

be held out of baseball activities for four-to-six weeks.

Sweeney

is hitting .295 with four home runs and 15 RBIs since he came up from Triple-A

Iowa on May 6.

Chicago

is off today and is expected to put Sweeney on the DL before tomorrow's game at

Oakland.

Sweeney was injured in the third inning

when he jumped and caught a fly ball by Kendrys Morales.
