The Chicago Cubs today announced that they placed infielder Derrek Lee on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured distal radius and a fractured distal ulna. In addition, the club selected outfielder Michael Restovich from Iowa (AAA) and transferred pitcher Wade Miller from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Lee suffered the injury in a collision with Rafael Furcal in Wednesday's contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Restovich, who takes Lee's roster spot, signed with the Cubs in the off-season as a minor league free agent. He opened the season with Iowa (AAA), where he batted .333 with 5 doubles, 2 homers and 10 RBI. He's hit safely in nine of his 13 games played and has five multi-hit games.

Miller was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on April 1 for continued rehabilitation from right shoulder surgery.
