Cubs' Rowan Wick dealing with 'pretty bad' oblique strain

  Cubs' Rowan Wick dealing with 'pretty bad' oblique strain The Cubs bullpen has quietly gotten on track after a rough start to the season, but the relief corps took a hit with Saturday's news that Rowan Wick suffered a left oblique strain.  Wick “got some testing done and it’s pretty bad,” manager David Ross told MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian and other reporters, and it could mean that Wick might be out of action for the postseason.  Wick has a 3.12 ERA, 10.4 K/9, and 3.33 K/BB over 17 1/3 innings this season, with just one home run allowed.  He also has four saves this season, though none over the last month as Jeremy Jeffress has recently emerged as Chicago’s top closer option.
