Cubs’ lefty Justin Steele close to returning

Left-hander Justin Steele had made his mark on the Cubs bullpen and was the first of the Cubs young relievers to arrive on the scene this season. A right hamstring strain while running the bases has sidelined Steele for a month, but the Cubs should be getting their young southpaw back in the near future.

Steele threw a bullpen on Sunday before the Cubs 2-0 win over the Marlins and all indications are that things went well.

“The data turned out really good,” Ross said. “He’ll throw another bullpen pretty soon. I need to talk to him first, but things are good.
