8/4 Lineup & roster move
Infielder Andres Blanco was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left calf to make room on the 25-man roster for lefty Tom Gorzelanny, who will start Tuesday, weather permitting. It’s clearing up at Great American Ball Park, and they may even start on time.
Blanco tweaked his calf Saturday in Florida. The Cubs could be getting reinforcements for the bench with the addition of infielder Aaron Miles, who could join the team as early as Wednesday. He’s been playing for Triple-A Iowa, rehabbing from a hyperextended right elbow.
As for Geovany Soto, he won’t join the big league team until Friday in Colorado. The Cubs want him to play three games for Double-A Tennessee. He went 1-for-2 Monday.
Milton Bradley was getting a breather Tuesday, so Jake Fox was in right.
