MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Cubs manager Lou Piniella says he expects to have second baseman Mark DeRosa back in camp next week.
DeRosa was hospitalized for an irregular heartbeat over the weekend and visited a cardiologist today.
The Cubs have issued no report on DeRosa's medical tests, but DeRosa says he's had the condition since he was a teenager.
With DeRosa sidelined, Piniella will have the opportunity to look at no less than six players at second base, including Alex Cintron, Ronny Cedeno, Mike Fontenot and Eric Patterson.
