Cubs feel good about health entering series finale vs. Reds

CINCINNATI -- Slowly but surely, the Chicago Cubs are getting healthy. And at just the right time.

Catcher Willson Contreras, shortstop Addison Russell and left-hander Jon Lester all have gotten positive reports from their side work at Great American Ball Park during the three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds, and all three are ready for the next steps toward being reinstated from the disabled list.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the silver lining to the sudden rash of injuries is that those guys should benefit from the rest.
