Soriano early return and other notes

-Soriano is expected to make an earlier return than expected. He maybe in the Cubs lineup Wedensday against the D'backs instead of the Marlins on Thursday. He took batting practice on the field for the second straight day Saturday, swinging more aggressively than Friday in a longer BP session. He is expected to do a rehab assignment in Mesa on Monday.

- Wood could be sent to the DL with a blister on his index finger depending on how it does in the next couple of days.

- Cubs placed Jon Lieber on the 15 day DL and recalled Micah Hoffpauier from AAA Iowa.

Woweeeee injury bug comin to bite again. Hope they do NOT rush Fonzie back too soon. He was really sucky in the field when he didn't take rehab games last injury. PU he stank.
