Cubs Put LF Soriano on 15 Day DL with Quad Strain
CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Cubs have put left fielder Alfonso Soriano on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left quadriceps.

They recalled outfielder Tyler Colvin from Triple-A Iowa Tuesday.

Soriano was hurt in the first inning Monday trying to beat out a groundball to third. He pulled up a few feet from first base, holding his left thigh.

Soriano leads the team with 12 home runs and 29 RBIs. He is hitting .271.
Colvin was hitting .260 with a home run and eight RBIs at Iowa. He was sent down May 16 to get more at-bats after hitting just .113 with two home runs in 62 at-bats with the Cubs.
