The Cubs made multiple roster moves Tuesday.

If you were wondering which outfielder -- Ryan Sweeney or Justin Ruggiano -- would go on the disabled list to make room for Jorge Soler, the answer is "both":

Logan Watkins is going to start rivaling his Triple-A Iowa teammate Blake Parker for frequent-flyer miles as he was just sent back to Iowa after Sunday's game. The usual 10-day rule for players sent down is waived in case of injury. It's a tough break for Sweeney, who just can't seem to stay healthy.

This means the Cubs are down one outfielder with the recall of Watkins and callup of Soler and two outfielders headed to the disabled list. That shouldn't be a big deal, as five days from now, next Monday, September 1, rosters can expand and at least one outfielder (Junior Lake, I'd presume) will be added to the 25-man roster.

Anyway, there they are -- the roster moves for tonight's game, and of course you're most interested in the addition of Soler, who will wear his spring-training uniform number, 68, which matches the number on his Twitter account.
