Cubs' Valbuena jams finger, day to day

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Third baseman Luis Valbuena left Saturday's game against the Nationals in the fifth inning after jamming his right pinkie on Ryan Zimmerman's foot sliding into third.

X-rays were negative, and Sveum said he expected Valbuena to be able to pinch-hit Sunday. But he said he's not ruling out the disabled list.

"It's his throwing hand, so it's going to be a little bit tough to throw for a couple days," Sveum said, "but he'll definitely, probably be able to swing the bat."
