According to multiple reports, the Cubs placed Shawn Camp on the 15-day DL on Wednesday with a sprained right big toe. Camp has apparently been dealing with the injury and received treatment on Sunday. The treatment did not work and Camp is going home to rest it according to ESPN Chicago.
The Cubs have recalled Rafael Dolis from Triple-A Iowa to take Camp’s spot on the active roster.
According to Carrie Muskat, the Cubs hoped Monday’s day off would be enough rest for the injury after he received treatment on Sunday.
A report from ESPN Chicago stated that Camp had a similar injury to his big toe while he was with the Blue Jays. If that is the case and if Shawn Camp gave full disclosure of the injury on his big toe to the team, the Cubs’ decision to DFA Michael Bowden makes little to no sense.
Updated 4:02pm CDT – According to multiple reports, Dale Sveum said Camp had toe issue for a month, didn’t tell anybody till Sunday, it was too late to save Bowden from being designated for assignment.
