Denorfia (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL on Tuesday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

A corresponding move was not immediately announced, and while Matt Szczur is expected to get the call, Szczur was still not with the team about three hours before Tuesday's game. Denorfia left Monday's game after aggravating a hamstring injury and is without a set timetable for a return.

Denorfia (hamstring) will be placed on the DL, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Denorfia prematurely exited Monday's game against the Cardinals when he aggravated a previous hamstring injury that kept him off the field for almost a month ahead of the season. Matt Szczur will be called up to replace Denorfia's spot on the roster but Junior Lake is the favorite to actually assume Denorfia's place in the lineup moving forward.

The Cubs confirmed that Denorfia was removed from Monday's game after aggravating a hamstring injury, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Denorfia was sidelined for about a month after first sustaining the hamstring injury in spring training, and only spent a week with the Cubs before the issue acted up again. He'll more than likely be bound for his second stint on the DL of the season, leaving Junior Lake to serve as the team's top outfield option off the bench.

Denorfia was removed from Monday's game against the Cardinals in the top of the third inning with a suspected hamstring injury, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

Denorfia appeared to suffer the injury while advancing from first to third base on a single by Addison Russell, as he was immediately replaced by Junior Lake. The reserve outfielder was making a rare spot start for Jorge Soler, but that may be last we see of him for a while. Denorfia had only recently returned to action after the hamstring injury resulted in him opening the season on the DL, so if he did in fact aggravate it, another trip to the DL may await.

Denorfia (hamstring) played an inning in left field but did not bat Friday against the Brewers.

Denorfia's hamstring has been bothering him all season. He has just 15 at-bats during the season's first month.

Denorfia is still recovering from the hamstring injury that kept him on the DL to start the season, Mark Gonazles of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Denorfia will remain out of the lineup Tuesday for the third straight game, and it was revealed that he's still dealing with some lingering effects of the hamstring injury. As a result, he should be considered day-to-day. Junior Lake will get the start in center field Tuesday.

Denorfia went 1-for-4 in Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh after subbing in for the injured Dexter Fowler (groin).

It seems like Denorfia could be in line for extra playing time if Fowler's injury lingers, so NL-only owners should keep an eye out for news on that front.

Denorfia has been activated from the DL, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

With Denorfia back, the Cubs will likely platoon him with Chris Coghlan, their other veteran corner outfielder. A platoon obviously limits both's fantasy value, so look elsewhere ideally if you need a left fielder.

Denorfia (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day DL on Sunday, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

Denorfia has just began running bases, and still appears to be roughly a week or so away from being game-ready. Look for the veteran to resume a reserve outfield role in mid-to-late April.

Denorfia (hamstring) ran the bases Wednesday, but he's still expected to start the year on the disabled list, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports.

It does not sound like Denorfia will be out long, and with the Cubs expected to backdate the stint, he may only miss a handful of games. He's expected to share left field with Chris Coghlan this year.
