Stewart held out, likely to play on Tuesday
PEORIA, Ariz. -- Ian Stewart is one bad weather day away from being back on the field.

The Cubs' new third baseman last played Wednesday against the Brewers, knocking a run-scoring double and walking in two trips to the plate. The next day, he was scratched with a tight quad.

After running on a treadmill Saturday, Stewart was going to do running drills on the field Sunday and start Monday, but rainy weather across the valley Sunday kept Stewart from working out as planned.

"He'll probably play [Tuesday]," manager Dale Sveum said. "I haven't talked to the trainer to see how things went this morning. If things went well, I was going to DH him today to have a couple at bats when that left-hander [Jason Vargas] comes out of the game.

"I don't even know if he's here. Maybe it didn't go so well or somebody missed my plans. As long as everything went well today he'll probably be playing [Tuesday]."

Stewart is hitting .333 (5-for-15) in six Cactus League games.
