4/25 Minor matters

Only one of the Cubs’ Minor League teams got to play Saturday night because of the rain — and it was quite a game. Dae-Eun Rhee gave up one hit over six innings in Daytona’s 1-0 win over Brevard County. Nelson Perez hit a third inning solo homer for all the offense.

Other Minor League news:

* Tennessee placed Jeremy Papelbon on the DL because of a tender elbow.

* Russ Canzler is now the fourth catcher on the Tennessee roster. He’s started at first, third and right field so far and will add catching to his resume. This spring, the Cubs talked to Canzler about switching positions and he played a few innings behind the plate in Mesa.

* The Class A Peoria Chiefs have to miss Ted Lilly. He treated the players to steak and lobster tails after his rehab outing last Monday.
