According to the Chicago Cubs, outfielder Carlos Gonzalez has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa. The outfielder will wear #2 and bat fifth today as the Cubs host the Angels for a makeup game from early April.
Jim Adduci has been designated for assignment to make room on the roster. After signing a minor league deal with the Cubs, Gonzalez hit his first home run as a member of the organization yesterday in Iowa. For a team who has been struggling offensively, it doesn’t hurt to give CarGo a chance to make this team and have an impact as a role player.
