From the Wire … Mateo Placed on 60-Day DL, Mather and Camp Added to Cubs 40-man Roster

According to the transaction page on Cubs.com, Marcos Mateo was placed on the 60-day DL on Tuesday with a sore right elbow. By placing Mateo on the 60-day disabled list, the Cubs created a spot on the 40-man roster.

The Cubs selected the contracts of Shawn Camp and Joe Mather from Triple-A Iowa and have added both players to the 40-man roster and activated both players. Camp and Mather will start the season with the Chicago Cubs.

Blake DeWitt has not been added to the 40-man roster as expected. Tony Campana is listed on the 25-man roster and has not been optioned to Triple-A Iowa as expected. Campana is in Chicago and could be activated if Bryan LaHair is forced to begin the season on the DL.

In other roster moves, Gerardo Concepcion was optioned to the Daytona Cubs on Monday.
