Cubs outfielder Ryan Sweeney has a fractured left rib, suffered when he crashed into the outfield wall at Safeco Field on Saturday, and he will not be able to do any baseball activities for four to six weeks. Sweeney was injured after catching Kendrys Morales' fly ball for the second out in the third inning of the Cubs' 5-3 win.
