Seiya Suzuki was one of the Chicago Cubs' big offseason signings this past winter, and the 27-year-old rookie has gotten off to a solid start on the north side of Chicago this season. Suzuki is hitting .247 with 4 home runs and 16 RBI. He's also the odds-on favorite to win the 2022 NL Rookie of the Year award, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest odds.

The Cubs did get some concerning news on Monday night when Suzuki was forced to exit the game with an ankle injury. The Cubs won the game, but lost Suzuki. For just how long though, is still to be determined.

The team is still waiting on official word to the extent of the injury. Pulling Suzuki form the game could have been a precautionary move, or it could be the sign of larger issue. It's certainly something to keep an eye on.

The Cubs currently hold +10000 odds to win the 2022 World Series, which ranks them third in their division behind both the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals.
