 CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs placed right-handed pitcher Edwin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with a right lat strain and put shortstop Starlin Castro on the bereavement list Thursday
Jackson took his 14th loss of the season Wednesday, when he lasted only 2 2-3 innings and allowed seven earned runs. He is 6-14 this season with a 6.09 ERA.
Jackson dealt with a similar injury at the end of the 2013 season.
