Jaron Madison, Chicago’s director of player development, said Monday he doesn’t expect the injured Iowa Cubs pitcher to return until at after the minor league All-Star break.
Alzolaly, ranked the top prospect in the organization by MLB.com, has been on the disabled list since May 30 with a lat strain.
“Just kind of giving it time to heal and then he’ll start building back up with his throwing program and everything,” Madison said. “No exact timetable right now. Just depending on how he feels.”
Iowa’s second half begins July 12th.
