Cubs Roster Moves: Phelps and Kemp Arrive, Underwood Optioned, De La Cruz DFA’d

Chicago Cubs

A couple of the Cubs’ new guys will be in the house tonight against the Cardinals, with Tony Kemp already on hand (he was traded to the Cubs today for Martin Maldonado), and David Phelps arriving after yesterday’s trade.

Phelps will take the spot of Duane Underwood Jr., who was up for a day but didn’t appear (he took Pedro Strop’s spot when he hit the IL). Kemp takes Maldonado’s spot.

Also, the Cubs DFA’d Oscar De La Cruz to open up a 40-man spot.
