God’s Wrath Watch: Alfonso Soriano to the DL, Tyler Colvin Recalled

Chicago Cubs News, Chicago Cubs Transactions

Alfonso Soriano was not able to avoid the disabled list with his quad injury, and he’ll be out for a couple weeks. Corresponding move? Tyler Colvin will be coming back to Wrigley.

Which is interesting.

Mike Quade said late yesterday that Blake DeWitt would fill in for Soriano in his absence. Surely, however, that was predicated on a short-term absence and not a DL stint, right? And now that Colvin is coming back, we have to assume that he’s going to start, right?

I ask these questions knowing that they *should* be rhetorical, but you just never know with this organization. Either way, we’ll see soon enough.


Colvin returns to a miserable .113/.191/.258 line with the big club after putting up a .260/.283/.500 line in a couple weeks of work at Iowa.
