Sweeney makes first rehab start in Class A

PITTSBURGH -- Outfielder Ryan Sweeney, on the disabled list since May 3 with a right hamstring strain, began a Minor League rehab assignment Monday with Class A Kane County.

Sweeney started in right field and went 0-for-2 with a walk in Kane County's 2-1 win over Cedar Rapids.

There's no timetable for Sweeney's return, Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. The outfielder was 11-for-55 in 20 games before he was injured.

Sweeney had been rehabbing at the Cubs' complex in Mesa, Ariz., before he joined the Kane County team.

"We'll just continue to monitor him for the next few days," Renteria said.
