Chicago Cubs Closer Out With Broken Wrist

Joe Borowski is out again. He was hit with a line drive back to the mound in Monday's game against KC. The good thing is it wasn't dislocated. The arm is in a splint and will be out about six weeks. That is six weeks until he can even start throwing again.

Looks like LaTroy Hawkins will have to be the closer. Hawkins had 25 saves in 34 chances last year with the Cubs.
