The Chicago Cubs today activated outfielder Freddie Bynum and left-handed pitcher Glendon Rusch from the 15-day disabled list. In addition, Chicago placed right-handed pitcher Carlos Marmol on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder fatigue, retroactive to August 19.

Bynum, 26, landed on the disabled list June 25 with right shoulder inflammation. He batted .227 (5-for-22) with three RBI in six games during a rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Iowa from August 15-20, hitting safely in each of his last three appearances. The left-handed hitter is batting .260 (19-for-73) in 41 games for the Cubs this season.

Rusch, 31, ends his second stint on the disabled list this season, after he was shelved on August 3 with left lateral epicondylitis. He is 3-8 with a 7.44 ERA (51 ER/61.2 IP) in 22 games (nine starts) this season, his third with the Cubs.

Marmol, 23, is 5-6 with a 5.65 ERA (45 ER/71.2 IP) in 15 games (13 starts) this season. He was recalled from Double-A West Tenn on June 4 and made his Major League debut that day, tossing 2.0 scoreless innings of relief in St. Louis.
