The latest on Josh Willingham and Mike Jacobs.
First up: Josh Willingham .
Josh Willingham felt his back tighten up during batting practice Saturday and didn't swing Sunday. He traveled with the team to Cincinnati and likely will be sent to the minors for a rehabilitation stint in the coming days.
Next up: Mike Jacobs .
First baseman Mike Jacobs (tight quad) continues his running and regular pregame batting practice and fielding routine. Gonzalez said if his progress continues, he would likely miss another day or two.
I guess we should expect to see Jacobs rejoining the team before Willingham. While both are missed and we can't wait to get them back, there replacements are doing an ample job filling in for them.
