He felt good enough to attend a softball game last night–and narrowly avoid getting hit with a foul ball while doing an on-camera interview–but the Cubs have placed him on the disabled list while activating Kerry Wood.

Wood has been out since early June with a blister on his right index finger, but tossed 24 innings with a 2.25 ERA and 21/10 K/BB ratio prior to landing on the shelf.
