6/22 Stewart’s back; Clevenger, Jackson hurt

Third baseman Ian Stewart was reinstated from the suspended list, and rejoined the Cubs’ Triple-A Iowa on Saturday. The Minor League team also placed outfielder Brett Jackson on the disabled list with a right calf strain, and outfielder Jae-Hoon Ha was promoted from Double-A Tennessee.

On Friday, the Cubs traded infielder Brent Lillibridge to the Yankees for a player to be named later or cash considerations, and on Saturday, left-handed reliever Hisanori Takahashi was dealt to the Rockies for a player to be named later or cash considerations. Both began the season with the Major League team.

Stewart was suspended 10 games for violating the loyalty clause in his contract after he made disparaging comments about the Cubs and manager Dale Sveum on Twitter. He last played June 11 at Oklahoma City, and was batting .168 (19-for-113) with six doubles, five home runs, and 20 RBIs in 40 games before he was suspended.

Jackson was batting .223 with seven doubles, three homers, and 23 RBIs in 61 games. He had an earlier stint on the DL with turf toe.

Ha joins Iowa after batting .284 with one homer, 14 RBIs, and eight stolen bases in 28 games with the Smokies.

The Cubs also announced that catcher Steve Clevenger, whose Minor League rehab assignment was to end Saturday, was experiencing some tightness in his oblique area. Clevenger will rest, and then be re-evaluated by the Cubs’ medical staff. In 15 games, he batted .327 with five doubles, three home runs, and 11 RBIs.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

AAA stats do NOT translate to the MLB… I don’t see how you could even think it could. Please justify this statement i would love to learn something new.

“Never completely dismiss Triple A stats as it is very competitive baseball.” Does not mean that AAA stats will be replicated in the major league. I UNDERSTAND the point you are making Mamma as do countless other people. Evidently we people with common sense are quite ahead of the few (ONE?) that have A LOT yet to learn about MANY topics, baseball being only one, respect being another….

listen man… i wasn’t being disrespectful… i asked HIM a question not YOU… so why don’t you butt out… this isn’t YOUR blog

also I NEVER said replicate… I said translate…. two different meanings… look it up in the dictionary and stop putting words in my mouth…

and for AAA stats look up BJax, Clevenger, Vitters, Sappelt, Campana, etc etc……. then go and look at the MLB stats……… you will see how AAA stats DON’T translate… the things you CAN get from AAA stats and MiLB stats is plate discipline and knowledge of strike zone… which is why everyone was freaking out about Baez’s numbers early in the year and now after he has made some adjustments and got his K numbers down people are excited again. Also why Bjax’s King issues were there the whole time and when called up its REALLY REALLY showed…….that is translating………… NOT replicating like some DIMWHIT on here tried to say
