From the Wire … Raley Recalled from Iowa, Putnam Placed on the DL

According to multiple reports, the Cubs have recalled LHP Brooks Raley from Triple-A Iowa to take Zach Putnam’s spot on the active roster. The Cubs placed Zach Putnam on the 15-day DL with elbow soreness on Wednesday morning. Putnam is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Wednesday.
