The Chicago Cubs today recalled infielder/outfielder Jake Fox from Triple-A Iowa and placed left-handed pitcher Jason Waddell on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 13) for evaluation and treatment of a non-baseball related medical issue.

Fox, 26, begins his second stint with the Cubs, having batted .417 (5-for-12) with two doubles and two RBI in eight games for Chicago from May 27-June 9. He was 5-for-6 (.833) with two doubles and a RBI as a pinch-hitter and started one game in right field and made two appearances at third base.

The right-handed hitter owns a .409 batting average (67-for-164) with 44 runs, 14 doubles, three triples, 17 homers and 53 RBI in 45 games for Iowa this season. He leads minor league baseball in batting average, on-base percentage (.495) and slugging percentage (.841).

Since he was optioned to Iowa June 9, Fox has reached base safely in three of four games, going 3-for-13 (.231) with three runs, a triple, two RBI and four walks.

Waddell, 28, has a 5.40 ERA (1 ER/1.2 IP) with no record and one hold in three relief appearances for the Cubs, his first major league action after nine seasons in the minors. This year with Iowa, he was 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA (10 ER/16.2 IP) in 18 relief outings prior to his selection May 27. He signed with the Cubs as a minor league free agent in November of 2008.
