Our minor league pals at Road to Wrigley have the scoop
that Mike Fontenot
is in New York but a subsequent roster move has yet to be made. It remains to be seen if this in anticipation of Derrek Lee being sent to the disabled list or possibly some other player getting shuffled around. A 40-man roster move would have to be made as well and chances are that Kerry Wood to the 60-day DL would take care of that.
UPDATE: The Trib indicates that Mark DeRosa
will go on the DL after hurting his finger yesterday on a collision at first base.
UPDATE #2: Bruce Miles says the fate of Fontenot
depends on the results of Mark DeRosa's MRI on his ring finger. Miles also says that Derrek Lee will need a few more days of rest to get over his neck problems and speculates that a reliever may get sent down if DeRosa's injury isn't DL worthy. Even if DeRosa is only out a few days but coupled with Lee being out a few days, the Cubs will need an extra bat off the bench and will have to live with 11 pitchers for a few days. I'm looking at Rocky Cherry.
