Wisdom exits vs. Brewers after collision at first base


Cubs infielder Patrick Wisdom exited Wednesday's game against the Brewers after a scary collision while playing first base.

In the second inning, Brewers outfielder Tyrone Taylor hit a comebacker to Jake Arrieta. Arrieta retrieved it and threw to Wisdom, but the throw was up the line and carried Wisdom off the bag, reaching into foul territory.

Taylor ran into Wisdom, who stayed down for a few moments before exiting with a Cubs trainer.

The Cubs later announced Wisdom has right neck tightness and left eye bruising, but no concussion. They'll continue to monitor him.

"We'll get him looked at. His neck's pretty stiff," manager David Ross said. "He got hit pretty hard."

Wisdom started at first base Wednesday with Anthony Rizzo (back) and Kris Bryant (side) out of the lineup. He was 2-for-2 at the plate with two RBIs before exiting.

Catcher Taylor Gushue entered in place of Wisdom, his MLB debut. Gushue was called up Wednesday after Jose Lobaton landed on the 60-day injured list with a shoulder injury.
