PHILADELPHIA -- The Chicago Cubs today placed right-handed pitcher Matt Guerrier on the 60-day disabled list with right elbow soreness and outfielder Thomas Neal on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated right shoulder, team officials announced Thursday.
As a result of that action, the Cubs recalled right-handed pitcher Eduardo Sanchez from Triple-A Iowa and selected the contract of catcher J.C. Boscan from Triple-A. Both Sanchez and Boscan will be available for this afternoon's game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
