Neal Cotts to be sent down?

Infielder/outfielder Jake Fox continues to be one of the hottest hitters in the minor leagues. A promotion to the cubs is likely even though Fox has some defensive challenges. As of Wednesday night, Fox was hitting .423 with 17 homers and 50 RBIs in 149 at-bats.

Left-hander Neal Cotts has just about worn out his welcome with manager Lou Piniella as the only left-hander in the Cubs' bullpen. Jason Waddell, who signed as a free agent in November, could be called up to replace Cotts. Through Monday's games, Waddell's owns a 0-1 record and 5.40 ERA. In 16 2/3 innings pitched, he has 12 strikeouts, seven walks and has allowed 17 hits.

If Neal Cotts is sent down, I will be a very happy Cubs fan.
