Shohei Ohtani (elbow) has been cleared to begin a "throwing progression."

Ohtani was evaluated by Dr. Steve Yoon, who gave him the go-ahead to resume throwing. This comes six weeks after Ohtani received a platelet rich plasma injection to combat a UCL sprain in his right elbow. Ohtani appears to be ahead of schedule as it took teammate Garrett Richards 13 weeks to resume throwing following a similar procedure in 2016. It remains to be seen whether 23-year-old will be able to pitch again this season, but he seems to finally be trending in the right direction. In the meantime, Ohtani will continue to see at-bats as the Angels' DH.

Cubs pitching coach Jim Hickey said Yu Darvish (elbow, triceps) is still "weeks away" from returning.

Darvish was expected to resume mound work soon, but no mention was made of that on Thursday ahead of Chicago's first-half opener against St. Louis. The right-hander has seen numerous starts and stops throughout his rehab. He hasn't thrown a pitch in a big league setting since May 20. With Darvish still ailing, perhaps the Cubs will look to add an arm at the upcoming trade deadline.

Evan Longoria (hand) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

It will be Longoria's first game action since going down with a broken hand on June 14. He'll surely need a few games to shake off the rust, but it shouldn't be long until the 32-year-old returns to the big leagues. Veteran Pablo Sandoval has been filling in for him at the hot corner.

Cubs first-round SS Nico Hoerner will miss 4-6 weeks with a ligament strain in his left elbow.

He hurt his elbow making a play in the field earlier this month. The injury will likely keep him out for the duration of the minor league season, though the 21-year-old is hoping to play again this fall. Before his injury, the Stanford alum was hitting .327 across 49 minor league at-bats for the Arizona League Cubs, Short-Season Eugene and Low-A South Bend.

Cubs placed RHP Brandon Morrow on the 10-day disabled list with right biceps inflammation.

The move was made retroactive to July 16. Morrow's spot on the roster will be absorbed by Anthony Bass, who is back after missing the past two weeks with an illness. This is already Morrow's second trip to the DL this season after injuring his lower back while putting on his pants (seriously) last month. Steve Cishek, Carl Edwards Jr. and Pedro Strop will be candidates to handle the ninth inning in Morrow's absence.

Bubba Starling will miss six weeks with a dislocated finger.

Per beat writer Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com, the injury was not "baseball related." A first-round pick of the Royals in 2011, Starling has yet to reach the major leagues.
