Ian Stewart Injury: Chicago Cubs Third Baseman Should Return June 28

Ian Stewart still doesn't know what's wrong with his wrist, but it won't stop the Chicago Cubs third baseman from returning this season. Stewart is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list on June 28, and steady injections of cortisone shots should have him ready to return to the field.

Stewart had another MRI on his injured wrist earlier in the week, but doctors still can't pinpoint exactly what's wrong. Stewart was considering an exploratory surgery, but will instead settle for the cortisone shots and a quick off the DL and back into the North Siders' lineup.

Luis Valbuena started every game at third in the crosstown series vs. the Chicago White Sox in Stewart's stead. The 27-year old Stewart is hitting .201 with five homers and 17 RBI this season.
