According to a report from the Tribune, Ryan Freel will be placed on the DL on Thursday after pulling his left hamstring on Wednesday. The Cubs will recall Bobby Scales on Friday to take his place on the active roster.
Bobby Scales was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday in one of many roster moves the Cubs made before their game against the Pirates.
In other news…Jake Fox worked out at third before Wednesday’s game under the supervision of Alan Trammell. The Cubs appear “hesitant to use him at third because of his lack of experience there.”
The Tribune also mentioned, “Rich Harden’s DL time may be extended, and he could miss three or more weeks.”
