Ian Stewart was hoping to get some answers when he visited the Cleveland Clinic for another medical opinion on his left wrist.
It doesnt sound like the Cubs third baseman received bad news, but its unclear whether he got what he wanted to hear.
The doctors checked him out and they didnt find anything that our doctors hadnt found, so nothing major, manager Dale Sveum said Tuesday. They (did a cortisone shot) on top of the hand this time and it seemed to go well. So hopefully that can get him through the season and well go from there.
Stewart, whos hitting .201, was placed on the disabled list last week to deal with an injury thats been bothering him since at least last summer, when he was with the Colorado Rockies.
Before leaving for Cleveland, Stewart didnt rule out the possibility of surgery, but Sveum didnt seem to think that would be an option on the table right now.
This kind of thing is lingering, Sveum said, but hopefully his cortisone shots in a different area make a big difference.
