The Cubs first rumor has surfaced for the summer. This article, among others, links the Chicago Cubs to pitcher Nate Eovaldi from the Yankees. Everything is pure speculation at this point, but lets take a look anyway.

It appears as though the injury to Jason Hammel is nothing more than cramps. Hammel had to leave his start today during warmups for the third inning. As he was warming up, he started to shake his leg and grab his hamstring. 

As quoted at Cubs.com, Hammel says that he felt he was fully hydrated, but began to cramp up anyway. Given how Hammel's 2015 season was derailed with a leg injury in July, the Cubs will likely continue to be very cautious with him.
