Chicago Cubs rookie Seiya Suzuki remains on the injured list after jamming his finger on May 26. This relatively minor issue has turned into a bigger problem for the 27-year-old, who was recently shut down from baseball activities in order to the reduce swelling in the affected area.

Following that period of rest, Cubs fans have received a new update on Suzuki's rehab timeline.

Chicago announced on Sunday that Suzuki will head to Arizona to restart his rehab after taking the last week off. At the very least, it's great news the right fielder is back to getting in reps as he looks to return to the lineup.

Suzuki first injured his finger on a stolen base attempt against the Cincinnati Reds at the end of May. He was placed on the 10-day injured list with the thought he'd be back in short order, but his rehab has progressed much slower than anticipated.

His absence after a scorching start to his MLB career has certainly been felt. Hopefully Suzuki is able to put this injury behind him and give the Cubs a boost in the coming weeks.
