Alec Mills (lower back strain) placed on 15-day IL

The Cubs placed Alec Mills on the 15-day IL on Sunday with a low back strain and recalled Michael Rucker from Triple-A.

Fantasy Impact

Mills left Saturday's start after just seven pitches with lower back pain, and likely underwent an MRI that revealed the strain. Even if he needs to miss the minimum time, he mediocre numbers make it obvious that he's not worth holding onto through his IL stint. Move on in all formats.

Alec Mills leaves Saturday's start with lower back pain

Alec Mills was removed from Saturday's start against the Red Sox with lower back pain.

Fantasy Impact

Mills threw just seven pitches and faced just two batters before departing. To the extent any fantasy managers were starting Mills, they should feel relieved that it wasn't an arm injury, and expect Mills to avoid an IL stint unless tests reveal something serious.
