Roster moves to come

The Cubs recalled pitcher Jeff Beliveau Friday to replace Brooks Raley in the first of a series of moves in the next several days as rosters expand Sept. 1.

On Saturday, the team will recall outfielders Tony Campana and Dave Sappelt–who was acquired with Travis Wood in the off season deal with the Cincinnati Reds–and infielder Adrian Cardenas. On Sunday, righthanded pitcher Miguel Socolovich, who was claimed off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles, will join the team.

Pitcher Chris Rusin will rejoin the team Tuesday and start that day against the Washington Nationals. Also to be added Tuesday will be just acquired catcher Anthony Recker, who came from the Oakland Athletics in a deal for catcher/first baseman Blake Lalli.

The added personnel won’t necessarily change the everyday makeup on the field, but will bring more flexibility in changes through a game, manager Dale Sveum said.

“You don’t have to worry about the innings as much with extra guys in the bullpen,” he said, his team half way through a 20-game stretch. “You don’t have to worry about pinch-hitting for your catcher or pinch running. All those things help.”
