"I'm encouraged with him DH-ing tonight," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "That's a step in the right direction. He's feeling a lot better today than yesterday, so that fact that he's in the lineup as a hitter is a step in the right direction, of him moving along.
"What he wanted to do was take a pregame yesterday on defense. So he'll do a step above that pregame on the defensive side [Wednesday], go a little bit more side to side."
