2B - CHC - IL10
2B Nick Madrigal has been placed on the 10-day IL with low back tightness. INF Ildemaro Vargas has been selected from AAA Iowa.
It is unknown how long Madrigal will be out or what the severity of the injury is. Vargas and Jonathan Villar are the most likely candidates to man 2B in the meantime.
Nick Madrigal went 0-for-3 in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Braves.
Max Fried shut down the majority of the Cubs' offense on Tuesday, including Madrigal. The second baseman has not done anything that shows that he deserves a fantasy roster spot in 2022, hitting .200 with just one RBI in 50 at-bats. He can be dropped and/or left on waivers.
Cubs second baseman Nick Madrigal went 3-for-5, doubling and scoring two runs in the Cubs' 6-4 win over the Rockies.

Cubs second baseman Nick Madrigal went 2-for-4 and scored one run in the Cubs 5-2 win over the Rockies.
Madrigal has struggled at the plate so far this season, getting a hit for just the second time in five games Thursday night. The second baseman will look to improve on his early season .158 batting average.
Nick Madrigal hit a couple of singles, scored two runs, and had one RBI during the Cubs' 8-5 win over the Mariners.
Madrigal should be the Cubs' everyday second baseman. He has had a nice spring going 4-for-13 with three runs, one RBI, and slashing .308/.357/.819. Though he will never hit for power, he will most likely bat at the top of the Chicago lineup and get those ever-important plate appearances. His current ADP is 322.
