Cubs put pitchers Wells, Cashner on DL

BY foxsports • April 8, 2011

The Chicago Cubs recalled right-hander Jeff Stevens from Triple-A Iowa after placing starting pitchers Randy Wells and Andrew Cashner on the 15-day disabled list because of arm injuries.

Right-hander Casey Coleman will pitch against Milwaukee on Sunday, and Cubs manager Mike Quade says left-hander James Russell will start Tuesday at Houston.

Quade says Russell won't be expected to throw more than a few innings Tuesday, and expects to use multiple relievers behind him.

Wells has a strain in his right forearm, and Cashner has a mild strain in the back of the rotator cuff in his right shoulder.
