Jordan Wicks Exits Early with Possible Injury; Hendricks Steps In

Jordan Wicks exited the game in the second inning with a trainer due to a potential injury, and Hendricks took over in his place.

Counsell and a Cubs trainer came out to check on him, and after a brief conversation, Wicks left the game. This was his first start back in the rotation after returning from the IL and a short stint in the bullpen.

It was difficult to discern the exact nature of Wicks’ injury—he appeared to be clutching either his side or possibly his lower back. In these uncertain situations, clarity can be elusive.

Kyle Hendricks entered the game and is likely to rejoin the rotation as circumstances dictate. Such is the ongoing narrative for the 2024 Chicago Cubs, where unfortunate events seem to be a recurring theme.
