Going to the DL
Jo-Jo Reyes – Hyper-extended Right Knee – Talking Chop looks to see if the reason behind the move is because of injury or other motives.

Jimmy Rollins – Strained Right Calf – Injury caused warming up before game
Mike Gonzalez – Strain Right Shoulder – Pain happened while warming in the bullpen during a game.
Brian Fuentes – Strained Muscle in Mid Back – Hurt his back pitching on 4/6
Esmailin Caridad – Strain Right Calf – Person to replace him as main Cubs setup man has not yet determined.
Kelly Shoppach – Sprained Right Knee – Injury probably caused by collision at home plate with Curtis Granderson

So far this season 100 players have made the trip to the DL with only 7 coming off so far.

Here are a few players that have some nagging injuries that could be heading to the DL

Ross Ohlendorf – Back Spasms – He had a start skipped on Monday and will not pitch this Saturday. There is a good chance he will go on the DL

Felix Pie – Strained Right Rotor Cuff – Injury occurred back on 4/6. He could be heading to the DL anytime.

Mark Ellis – Strained Hamstring – He has not played since 4/11.

Jacoby Ellsbury – Bruised Left Ribs – Team looking of not putting him on DL, depends on Mike Cameron‘s status

Mike Cameron – Passed a kidney stone Friday and looks to be back in a few days
