Word from the clubhouse on Cishek: was hit on the inside of the right knee. Appeared to no more than a bad bruise and his availability for today's game was to be determined.

Considering how much pain Cishek appeared to be in, this seems like a win for the Cubs. Scary things can happen in batting practice, and this is a reminder of that.
