9/16 Taguchi called up
The Cubs called up So Taguchi from Triple-A Iowa, and he will be in uniform for Wednesday’s game against the Brewers. Taguchi batted .248 for Iowa with four homers and 24 RBIs. The Cubs felt they needed an extra outfielder after Sam Fuld strained his right thumb. Fuld will be sidelined at least a week.
Taguchi, 40, played for the Phillies last season, appearing in 88 games and batting .220.
