(CBS) — Cubs third basemen Ian Steward could miss up to two weeks with a mild to moderate strain quad strain, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.

Stewart, 27, signed a one-year deal to return to the Cubs after being limited to 55 games last season due to season-ending surgery on his left wrist, July 10.

“I feel like I was brought back to be part of the team and help this team and I feel like I can do that,” Stewart told the Tribune. “This is unfortunate. But I think if this was towards the end of camp or maybe in the middle of it, it may be a different story. It is disappointing though, because I put all that work in in the off-season and my wrist is good”

He batted .201 (36-for-179) with five doubles, two triples, five home runs and 17 RBI before being placed on the disabled list June 14 and having surgery nearly a month later.
