CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Cubs optioned infielder Ronny Cedeno to Triple-A Iowa and designated catcher Koyie Hill for assignment after Monday's 6-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cubs are expected to bring Henry Blanco off the 60-day disabled list Tuesday where he's been with a herniated disk in his neck and also take outfielder Cliff Floyd off the restricted list. Floyd had been on the bereavement list following the death of his father, but was moved to the restricted list Monday.
Cedeno was recalled from Iowa on July 24. He was batting .118 with two homers in 27 games. Hill, who was out of options to the minors, saw his playing time reduced with the acquisition of Jason Kendall. Hill batted .161 with two homers and 12 RBIs and started 25 games. The Cubs were 17-8 in his starts. He played 36 games.
Blanco, who's been on a rehab assignment at Iowa, has appeared in only 14 games for the Cubs this season, batting .194.
Floyd is batting .290 with four homers and 36 RBIs in 79 games.
