Cubs call up Fuld DL Miles
PITTSBURGH – The Chicago Cubs today recalled outfielder Sam Fuld from Triple-A Iowa. In addition, the Cubs placed infielder Aaron Miles on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 21) with a hyperextended right elbow.
Fuld, 27, is hitting .286 (81-for-283) with 16 doubles, eight triples, 27 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 73 contests for Iowa this season, including a .398 batting average (33-for-83) this month. He has walked 32 times compared to just 22 strikeouts in 319 plate appearances, and has a .309 batting average (21-for-68) with runners in scoring position as the club’s full-time center fielder.
A left-handed batter and fielder, Fuld made his major league debut with the Cubs in 2007, appearing in 14 games as a September call-up.
Re: Cubs call up Fuld DL Miles
I wonder if he'll actually get to play. Too bad he and Kosuke bat left; it would be nice to have a platoon partner for Kosuke while Johnson is out.
