X-rays negative on Sweeney's ribs after wall collision

SEATTLE -- X-rays of Ryan Sweeney's ribs were negative, and the Cubs outfielder was diagnosed with a contusion on his left side after crashing into the outfield wall in the third inning Saturday.

Sweeney was hurt when he hit the center-field wall catching Kendrys Morales' fly ball for the second out in the Mariners' third inning.

After Saturday's game, Cubs manager Dale Sveum said they would have a better idea as to the severity of Sweeney's injury on Sunday.

Julio Borbon took over in center in the fourth for Sweeney, who has gotten the majority of playing time since David DeJesus sprained his right shoulder colliding with the center-field wall at Citi Field June 14. DeJesus is on the 15-day disabled list.
