The Cubs placed outfielder Justin Ruggiano on the 15-day disabled list with a Grade 2 left hamstring strain.
Ruggiano suffered the injury sliding for a ball in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s 7-5 loss to the Diamondbacks. Ruggiano said he felt the hamstring pull two or three steps before he began to slide near the right-field bullpen mounds. He said the mound was not an issue.
Ruggiano said he hopes to be back in three to four weeks.
The Cubs also optioned right-handed pitcher Blake Parker to Iowa and recalled lefty Zac Rosscup and righty Neil Ramirez
