Now that their non-waiver trade work is completed, the Cubs' next move might involve the disabled list.

Manager Dale Sveum and general manager Jed Hoyer both said that Matt Garza will likely rejoin the rotation next week when the Cubs are at San Diego. Sveum targeted next Tuesday as a possible return date for Garza.

Nobody mentioned the disabled list, though.

If Tuesday is that day he returns, that would mean Garza would go 17 days between appearances after last taking the mound July 21 at St. Louis. Garza suffered a cramp in his right-triceps in that outing and has been recovering from a sore arm ever since.
