According to a report from ESPN in Chicago, the Cubs are expected to place Aaron Miles on the disabled list Monday with a hyperextended elbow.
The report mentioned the Cubs would recall either Bobby Scales or possibly Sam Fuld to take his place on the active roster. The move is expected to be made official before Monday’s game against the Pirates.
Updated – 6/28/09 – 1:25pm C.T. – Sam Fuld Recalled from Triple-A Iowa according to the Tribune Bobby Scales has earned another trip to the big leagues but with Ryan Freel on the roster the right move might be to bring up Sam Fuld.
Fuld has not played in the majors since 2007 but is one of the better defenders in the Cubs’ system … and is on the Cubs 40-man roster.
In 73 games this season for the I-Cubs, Fuld has hit .286/.358/.399 with 16 doubles and eight triples … not to mention 20-for-25 in the stolen base department.
