From the Wire … Ryan Dempster Placed on 15-Day Disabled List

According to multiple reports, the Cubs placed Ryan Dempster on the 15-day DL with right lat tightness. The Cubs and Ryan Dempster are saying the injury is not serious and is for precautionary reasons.

The Cubs also activated Geovany Soto from the 15-day DL and optioned Welington Castillo to Triple-A Iowa. Scott Maine was recalled from Triple-A Iowa to fill Dempster’s spot on the active roster.

Randy Wells will get the start Wednesday night against the White Sox … And the Cubs lineup for Monday is interesting to say the least. David DeJesus is starting in center with Bryan LaHair in right and Steve Clevenger at first base.

Let the speculation begin …

Will update if additional information is made available.
