CHICAGO (AP) -Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez was put on the 15-day disabled list Monday and Chicago reinstated outfielder Cliff Floyd from the bereavement list.
Ramirez, batting .299 with 13 homers and 39 RBIs, has tendinitis in his left knee. He was hurt running to first base in a game at Milwaukee on June 6 and was placed on the DL retroactive to June 7.
``Our doctors felt that just putting him on the DL and giving him full rest and treatment would be the best for the player,'' manager Lou Piniella said.
The 34-year-old Floyd is batting .306 with three home runs and 23 RBIs in 42 games. He was placed on the bereavement list before Friday night's game in Atlanta because of his father's illness.
