Cubs’ Steele exits start vs. Dodgers with thumb soreness originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
Cubs manager David Ross and a trainer came out to check on Steele during warmups before the top of the fifth inning. Steele walked off the field with the trainer soon after.
He was seen looking at his left hand as he headed toward the Cubs dugout. Michael Rucker entered in his place.
Steele allowed three hits, two walks and two runs in four innings, throwing 69 pitches. It was his longest outing since April 14 — his second start of the season.
