 HOUSTON (AP) -Chicago Cubs outfielder Alfonso Soriano went on the 15-day disabled list Monday, a day after straining his right quadriceps while running the bases against the New York Mets.
Soriano is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks. He had an MRI exam Sunday night and did not travel with the Cubs to Houston.
Chicago purchased the contract of infielder Eric Patterson from Triple-A Iowa to fill Soriano's roster spot.
Soriano, who signed a $136 million, eight-year contract, is hitting .297 with 18 homers and 42 RBIs.
Patterson was batting .299 with 23 doubles, six triples, 14 home runs and 62 RBIs at Iowa. The left-handed hitter, a Pacific Coast League All-Star last season, is the brother of Corey Patterson, who played for the Cubs from 2000-05.
Chicago also put right-hander Wade Miller on unconditional release waivers and designated infielder Brian Dopirak for assignment.
