CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Cubs recalled top prospect Felix Pie from Triple-A Iowa and placed infielder Daryle Ward on the 15-day disabled list with a strain in his left hip on Sunday.
It's the second stint this season with the Cubs for Pie, who started in center field and batted second against the Atlanta Braves. He batted .224 in 18 games for Chicago from April 17 to May 9 before being sent back to Iowa, where he began the season.
Ward, used mainly as a pinch hitter, is batting .270. The hip started bothering him a few weeks ago.
