CHICAGO (AP) -Cubs right fielder Cliff Floyd came out of Saturday's game against the Houston Astros after diving for a ball and straining his left shoulder in the first inning.
Floyd tried for a shoestring catch of leadoff batter Chris Burke's blooper down the right-field line but missed and landed on his shoulder as the ball rolled behind him for a triple.
Mark DeRosa moved from second base to right field in the top of the second and Mike Fontenot came in to play second, taking Floyd's No. 5 spot in the batting order.
