According to a report from ESPN Chicago, the Cubs called up So Taguchi from Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday. The move required the Cubs to add So Taguchi to the team’s 40-man roster. With the addition of Taguchi, the Cubs 40-man roster currently stands at 40 players. The move indicates Sam Fuld’s injury is not healing as quickly as they hoped.
Reports on Tuesday night indicated the Cubs might call-up either Tyler Colvin or James Adduci but with the Taguchi added to the Major League roster another move would have to be made in order to clear a spot for either of the minor league outfielders.
So Taguchi hit .248/.347/.333 in 85 games for the Iowa Cubs this season.
