The Chicago Cubs have placed 26-year old righty swinging outfielder Matt Szczur on the 15-day disabled list due to a mild hamstring strain. He has played in 21 games for the Cubs so far this year and he is 11 of 30 (.367 avg, 1.041 OPS) with 9 runs scored, 2 homers, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base. This is a bad break for Szczur, as he was playing the best baseball of his major league career! The Cubs have called up 28-year old lefty swinging outfielder Ryan Kalish to replace Matt Szczur on the active roster. Kalish played in 20 games in AAA-ball for the Cubs this year and he was 21 of 57 (.368 avg, .980 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. Kalish last played in the majors in 2014 with the Cubs. Kalish has played in 146 games in his first three years in the majors and he is 93 of 380 (.245 avg, .643 OPS) with 51 runs scored, 4 homers, 34 RBIs and 16 stolen bases.
