 CHICAGO (AP) -Rookie outfielder Felix Pie was sent down to Triple-A by the Chicago Cubs on Thursday and outfielder Angel Pagan was recalled from Iowa.
The Cubs' most touted position prospect, Pie impressed the Cubs with his defense in center field. But he hit just .224 in 18 games since making his major league debut on April 17.
Pie was originally brought up to give the Cubs another option in center after Alfonso Soriano injured his hamstring.
Pie started nine games and hit one home run with four RBIs. He got most of his starts in April, and had been playing behind veteran Jacque Jones since Soriano permanently shifted to left.
Cubs manager Lou Piniella said Pie did well in his first audition, but needs to work on his plate discipline. He struck out 10 times and walked once. The speedy 22-year-old will hit second for the Iowa Cubs.
``Well, we need to get Pie playing,'' Piniella said. ``Plus, Pagan gives us a switch-hitting bat and he can help out a little at center field.''
Pagan hit .247 with five home runs and 18 RBIs in 77 games with the Cubs last season. He was hitting .250 with three homers and nine RBIs in Triple-A. He started in center Thursday against Pittsburgh and hit eighth.
