The Chicago Cubs shared injury updates on a pair of sidelined pitchers ahead of Sunday's series finale against the Brewers.

Alec Mills was scheduled to throw a sim game in Arizona Sunday, while lefty Wade Miley was set to play light catch.

The Cubs placed Mills (low back strain) and Miley (left elbow inflammation) on the 10-day injured list ahead of Thursday's season opener against the Brewers.

Cubs manager David Ross said the Mills move was a precaution after the right-hander felt tightness in his low back following a bullpen session. 

Depending on he feels after Sunday's sim game, it might not be long before Mills is ready to join the Cubs.

Miley didn't appear in a game this spring after dealing with the left elbow issue. He'll need to build-up his workload before rejoining the Cubs.
