Sweeney Activated From Disabled List
By Josh Christensen, TV9 Sports
It's hard to believe, but it has been more than two months since Cedar Rapids native and Chicago Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney went down with a broken rib.
Before the injury, it looked like he rejuvenated his career and became a regular starter for the Cubs. Injuries have been a problem for Sweeney in his major league career.
But he's hoping to finish the season healthy as he was activated from the 60-day disabled list on Sunday.
He went 1 for 3 with an RBI against the Phillies in his return to the lineup.
