Rizzo said the discomfort surfaced during Monday's loss to the Reds. Chatwood is 0-0 in two career starts against Pittsburgh with a 1.50 ERA.

Roger Bossard, the head groundskeeper for the White Sox, said the Cubs had to deal with more than 3 inches of snow.

Javier Baez is starting to come around at the plate, driving in three runs with four walks in his last three games. Baez has enjoyed success against the Pirates, posting a.289 average with 17 RBI's in the last three seasons.
