8/9 Roster moves – updated
Catcher Geovany Soto was placed on the disabled list because of a mild ligament sprain in his right shoulder and first baseman Derrek Lee placed on the bereavement list, the Cubs announced after Monday’s game. Lee left for Sacramento to be with his grandfather, who was ill. The Cubs will call up catcher Welington Castillo and first baseman Micah Hoffpauir from Triple-A Iowa to take their spots on the roster. They’re expected to join the team Tuesday.
