Cubs put Sweeney, Ruggiano on DL

AP - Sports

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs put outfielders Ryan Sweeney and Justin Ruggiano on the 15-day disabled list on Wednesday before the second game of their series against the Cincinnati Reds.

Sweeney had to leave the Cubs' 3-0 victory on Tuesday with a pulled hamstring. Ruggiano hadn't played since last week because of a sore left ankle.

The moves opened a roster spot for outfielder and top prospect Jorge Soler, who was called up from Triple-A Iowa and was in the starting lineup for his major league debut. The Cubs also recalled infielder Logan Watkins from Iowa a day after he was optioned down.
