5/4 Stewart on Iowa roster

Late Friday, the Cubs activated third baseman Ian Stewart from the disabled list and optioned him to Triple-A Iowa. Stewart has been on a Minor League rehab assignment at Iowa, recovering from a strained left quad suffered Feb. 21. Major League players are limited to 20 days per rehab assignment, and Stewart’s time expired on Friday. In 13 games with Iowa, Stewart was 4-for-44 (.091) with one double and four RBIs. He’s struck out 16 times and walked eight times.

“[Luis] Valbuena and [Cody] Ransom are our third basemen, that’s the way it is now,” Dale Sveum said.
