5/27 Vitters on DL
The Iowa Cubs placed Josh Vitters on the DL, effective May 24, with a broken big toe on his left foot. He suffered the injury when he fouled a ball off his toe during batting practice. Vitters was batting .208 (30-for-144) with six home runs and 20 RBIs in 43 games. Arismendy Alcantara was scheduled to start in the outfield for the Iowa Cubs Tuesday against Memphis, but that game was postponed because of rain. It would have been his first pro start in the outfield. The I-Cubs are short-handed with Vitters being injured and Ryan Kalish yet to arrive.
