CHICAGO (AP) -Chicago Cubs left fielder Alfonso Soriano was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday after an MRI confirmed a strained right calf.
Soriano sustained the injury Tuesday night while catching Ken Griffey's fly ball to end the top of the first inning. Soriano never came to bat in the bottom of the inning as Mike Fontenot came up to pinch-hit for the Cubs' leadoff batter.
The Cubs recalled infielder Eric Patterson from Triple-A Iowa to take Soriano's place on the roster.
