Fantasy Impact: Suzuki missed six weeks in spring training last season due to a left oblique strain. The 29-year-old was off to a hot start this season, so this will be a major blow to the Cubs and fantasy managers if he has to miss any significant amount of time. The Cubs have recalled Alexander Canario to fill Suzuki’s roster spot.
