#Cubs activate Denorfia; Szczur to Iowa
The Cubs activated outfielder Chris Denorfia from the 15-day DL on Sunday and optioned outfielder Matt Szczur to Triple-A Iowa. Denorfia will be available for Sunday’s game vs. the Nationals.
Denorfia, 34, was sidelined with a hamstring injury, and has only played 12 games. He opened the season on the DL because of the injury, and was activated April 17 but then returned to the DL on MAy 5. In two games with Double-A Tennessee, as part of his rehab, he went 2-for-9 with two doubles and two RBIs.
Szczur, 25, was 6-for-36 with two doubles in 23 games for the Cubs this season. With Iowa, he has batted .330 (29-for-88) with three doubles, two triples, four home runs and 14 RBI in 24 games.
