Breaking News: Cubs Make Multiple Roster Moves

From the official press release:
The Chicago Cubs today recalled infielder Jake Fox and selected the contracts of infielder Andres Blanco and left-handed pitcher Jason Waddell from Triple-A Iowa. The Cubs optioned left-handed pitcher Neal Cotts and infielder Bobby Scales to Triple-A Iowa. Additionally, the club placed infielder Aaron Miles on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 26, with a right shoulder strain.

Blanco will wear uniform number 13, Fox will wear number 5 and Waddell will wear number 43. All three are available for this afternoon's game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Wrigley Field. Chicago's 40-man roster now stands at 38 players.

This has to count as a fairly major shakeup -- those of you clamoring for the dumping of Cotts and Miles have gotten your wish. Waddell's numbers weren't great at Iowa, but he threw well in spring training and is more of a true LOOGY than Cotts.

And now, we shall see if Jake Fox can hit major league pitching.
