The SportsXchange

The Chicago Cubs activated catcher Welington Castillo from the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, according to radio station 670 The Score.

In a corresponding move, the club designated catcher Eli Whiteside for assignment to make room for Castillo on the active roster.

Castillo was out for three weeks with a rib cage injury. In two rehab games with Triple-A Iowa, he went 3-for-10 with two walks.

Castillo, 27, has a batting line of .242/.287/.385 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 43 games this season.

Whiteside is expected to clear waivers and accept a demotion to Iowa.
