MESA, Ariz. -- Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano will not be able to play in Cactus League games for about five days after suffering a non-displaced fracture of the tip of his right middle finger during an early drill Sunday.

Soriano was working on catching balls against the outfield wall, and he reached up to make a two-handed catch, and the ball hit his finger. He suffered a small chip in his finger.

"It's not bad -- it's two or three days," Soriano said. "I'll be back."

Soriano will not be able to throw or swing a bat until the swelling goes down. However, he can continue to do his cardio training.

"What I've asked him to do is keep his running program going," Cubs manager Lou Piniella said. "His legs are really starting to feel good, and we don't want the finger to be a deterrent to him not maintaining his lower body.

"The trainer said three to five days, and when they tell me three days, I would say five," Piniella said.

When it happened, Soriano wasn't worried.

"I thought it wasn't a big deal," said Soriano, who had X-rays taken as a precautionary measure. "It's happened to me before." ... 400416.jsp
