9/1 September call-ups
The Cubs Tuesday activated infielder Andres Blanco from the disabled list and recalled right-handed pitcher Justin Berg and infielder/outfielder Micah Hoffpauir from Triple-A Iowa. All three players were available for Tuesday’s game against the Astros.
Expect the Cubs to activate David Patton (groin) from the DL on Wednesday.
