The 24-year-old left missed most of 2014 while recovering from a foot injury.

The move starts the process of clearing 40-man roster spots for use this offseason.
A left hamstring strain later, Sweeney is on the 60-day DL and Kalish is back on the 40-man roster.
It could be exciting to see Vizcaino finally unleashed at the big league level.
The first of the September call-ups arrives.
Ruggiano has been dealing with a bum ankle, and Sweeney hurt his hamstring last night.
If the Cubs wanted to stick with two lefties in the pen right now, there may not have been a spot for Schlitter.
Edwin Jackson is dealing with a lat strain, it seems.
If the Cubs bring up an outfielder to replace Straily, might we finally see Jorge Soler? Or will it be someone else?
Jackson’s time with the Cubs wound up a learning lesson for many fans. Cooper is a 26-year-old AAA reliever.
One more spot will be needed today, but it’ll be interesting to see how the Cubs come up with it.
The 26-year-old outfielder was a great story earlier this year, but wasn’t really hitting at Iowa.
Schierholtz just couldn’t get over the hump this year, and the Cubs decided not to wait any longer.
The latter part is the most interesting, because he’s going to require a 40-man roster spot soon.
