The Chicago Cubs today activated first baseman Derrek Lee from the 15-day disabled list. In a corresponding roster move, Chicago has optioned infielder Buck Coats to Triple-A Iowa.

The 30 year old had landed on the disabled list for the second time this season with post-traumatic inflammation of his right wrist on July 24. He was originally on the 15-day disabled list from April 21-June 25 after he fractured the distal radius and distal ulna bones in his right wrist in a collision with the Dodgers' Rafael Furcal on April 19 in Los Angeles.

Lee is batting .261 (31-for-119) with four home runs and 14 RBI in 34 games this season. He batted .227 (17-for-75) with four doubles, a home run, 11 walks and four RBI in 20 games between trips to the disabled list.

Coats, 24, was 0-for-3 in three pinch-hitting appearances with the Cubs since he was recalled on August 22. He is hitting .277 (119-for-429) with 20 doubles, six home runs and 49 RBI in 118 games for Iowa this season, including a .289 mark (91-for-315) against right-handed pitchers.
