The Cubs on Wednesday placed second baseman Darwin Barney on the 15-Day D.L. with a left knee sprain. Barney injured his knee on Monday evening and an MRI Wednesday revealed the strain.â†µ
To fill Barney’s spot on the 25-man Roster the Cubs have activated Alfonso Soriano from the 15-Day D.L. Soriano has been out since May 30th with a strained quad. He leads the Cubs with 12 Homeruns so will be a welcome return to the Cubs lineup.
