Cubs activate INF Aaron Miles from disabled list06/10/2009 5:32 PM ET
The Chicago Cubs today activated infielder Aaron Miles from the 15-day disabled list after the club optioned infielder/outfielder Jake Fox following last night's 7-1 win against the Astros.
Miles, 32, landed on the disabled list May 27 (retroactive to May 26) with a right shoulder strain. He played in three games during a rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Iowa, June 6-8, hitting .250 (3-for-12) while spending time at second base and third base.
A switch-hitter, Miles is batting .204 (20-for-98) with six doubles and four RBI in 37 games for Chicago. He has appeared in 26 games (20 starts) at second base and four games (two starts) at shortstop, committing just one error in 115 total chances - good for a .991 fielding percentage.
Miles signed with the Cubs as a free agent December 31, 2008 after seeing major league action with the White Sox (2003), Rockies (2004-2005) and the Cardinals (2006-2008).
Fox, 26, was recalled May 27 and batted .417 (5-for-12) with two doubles and two RBI in eight games for the Cubs. At the time of his promotion, he led all of minor league baseball with a .424 batting average (64-for-151), 17 homers, 51 RBI, 33 extra-base hits, 133 total bases, an .881 slugging percentage and a .503 on-base percentage in just 41 contests with Iowa.
