Brave new homestand

Roster moves were the theme of the day, as the club welcomed back Aramis Ramirez, Reed Johnson and Angel Guzman from the DL. With all credit given to the young players that came up and acted as sparkplugs for the team, it’s nice to see these familiar faces in uniform again.

Rehab assignment stats (at Class-A Peoria unless otherwise noted):

Ramirez: .500 (3-for-6), double, three walks

Johnson: .333 (2-for-6), two walks

Guzman: one perfect inning, two strikeouts; at AAA Iowa, 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

As corresponding roster moves, the Cubs optioned Sam Fuld and Kevin Hart back to Triple-A Iowa; David Patton was placed on the DL with a groin strain.

Right-hander Jair Jurrjens (6-6, 2.73 ERA) pitches for the Braves.
