 CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Cubs put infielder Daryle Ward on the 15-day disabled list Friday with a torn right calf muscle and activated closer Ryan Dempster.
In corresponding moves, the Cubs called up infielder Scott Moore from Triple-A Iowa and optioned right-hander Sean Gallagher to the same team.
Ward, who has batted .333 in 47 games this season, had been filling in at first base while Derrek Lee serves a five-game suspension. Ward got hurt Thursday while sliding to catch the popup in the second inning. He had an MRI after the game and said he hopes to be back in a couple of weeks.
Dempster, who had been on the 15-day DL since June 26 with a left oblique strain, is 16-for-18 in saves this season with a 3.38 ERA. He had two scoreless rehab stints for Iowa. Carlos Marmol and Bob Howry have filled in during late-game situations during Dempster's absence.
Moore, who was in the lineup Friday at first base against Arizona, was batting .266 for Iowa with 16 homers and 61 RBIs. He played in 16 games with the Cubs last September and batted .263.
Gallagher got his first career save Wednesday by pitching the final four innings of a 12-1 victory over the Giants. Gallagher made five relief appearances and had a 5.73 ERA with no record.
