The Chicago Cubs are expected to place infielder Aaron Miles on the disabled list later today with a hyperextended elbow. Miles has been unavailable for half a week since he hurt the elbow in batting practice last Friday.

Um. How exactly does someone hurt their elbow that badly in batting practice? Whatever.

The Cubs will call up Bobby Scales or perhaps outfielder Sam Fuld to replace Miles on the roster. The latter may make some sense given Reed Johnson’s absence.
