OK, so maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit, but it appears that Micah Hoffpauir will be added to the 40 man and join the club sometime in the next couple of days. The resulting move is going to be to put D-Ward on the DL with back problems. When Lou was discussing the situation, he said that they would put D-Ward on the DL over the weekend. When questioned why wait, Lou responded that they were waiting on the kid from AAA to get some game experience in the outfield. As reported on TD's Minor League Short Hop just yesteray, the Cubs wanted to get Hoffpauir some PT in right. Hoffpauir started yesterday's game in right, his first start and only second game logged in right field. Maybe he's heard the rumors' as well, he has 9 ribbies in his last two games.
