Cubs Put Claim on Teahen? Roster Moves....

-Jon Heyman along with other ML sources says the Cubs will make a claim on Mark Teahen when he is put on waivers. The Cubs would likely be one of many teams looking to put a claim on him. He is under team control for a while, can play various positions, and is only making 3.5 million this season. Although, in this market a lot of smaller teams may not want to claim 3.5 million so there is a chance.

- The Tribune says the Cubs will send down Sam Fuld when the activate Aaron Miles off the DL today. The Cubs place Andres Blanco on the DL with a calf strain and called up Tom Gorzolanny before yesterdays game.

- Soto could be activated today but more he will likely return to the Cubs on Friday in Denver.

- B.J. Ryan could be heading to the big leagues soon with not giving up a run yet in his rehab stints in Iowa. He has walked 5 in 5 innings but has stuck out 4. If the Cubs do activate Ryan and Soto soon they could send down Shark and Stevens to make room for the two. That would give the Cubs 12 pitchers and 13 position players.

Ryan was releast today maybe now they will bring up Gaub. Then Marshall can start. I'm starting to like Cashner as a starter also.
