Hoerner, 24, missed time after colliding with center fielder Ian Happ as the two chased down a fly ball. Happ remains on the injured list with bruised ribs. Hoerner was hitting .389 with a .500 on-base percentage before the injury.
The Cubs also activated reliever Dan Winkler for this weekend’s Tigers series and optioned left-hander Brad Wieck.
