6/16 Fox to Cubs; Waddell on DL

The Cubs have recalled Jake Fox and placed Jason Waddell on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 13. Waddell was sidelined for evaluation and treatment of a non-baseball related medical issue. This will be Fox’s second stint with the team. He was 5-for-12 with two doubles in eight games. Waddell has a 5.40 ERA in three games, and last pitched on June 12. The move also trims the Cubs roster to 12 pitchers.

5/27 Roster moves update & lineup

Jake Fox, Jason Waddell and Andres Blanco joined the Cubs on Wednesday, and Bobby Scales and Neal Cotts were sent to Triple-A Iowa, while Aaron Miles was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his sore shoulder. Miles received a cortisone shot and will not do anything for four or five days, then go to the Cubs’ facility in Mesa, Ariz., to rehab.

Blanco, who can backup at shortstop and second, was in the lineup Wednesday for the series finale against the Pirates. It’ll be LF Soriano, SS Theriot, RF Bradley, 1B Lee, CF Johnson, C Soto, 3B Freel, 2B Blanco and P Zambrano.

Also, Carlos Marmol rejoined the Cubs after his wife gave birth to the couple’s second daughter, Caroline. Everyone is doing well.

5/27 Roster moves

Expect some roster moves by the Cubs Wednesday. Aaron Miles has been bothered by a sore shoulder since Spring Training, and may be placed on the DL. That would open one spot. The Cubs have been trying to get another bat in the lineup and Jake Fox, who is leading the Pacific Coast League in average, home runs and RBIs, was spotted at Wrigley Field. Also, lefty Jason Waddell was seen at the ballpark as was infielder Andres Blanco. Lou Piniella has not been happy with lefty Neal Cotts, who still has options left, and could be sent to the Minors. Stay tuned.
