      OF Chris Denorfia hitting sixth for Cubs

      Left fielder Chris Denorfia will hop back into the lineup for the Cubs on Monday, landing sixth in the team's lineup as they take on the Rockies. Denorfia has alternated starts with fellow outfielder Chris Coghlan and Denorfia might have gotten the nod Monday simply due to experience against Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa. While Denorfia is hitting just .250 against De La Rosa, he does have 24 plate appearances against the veteran pitcher, far more than anyone else in the young Cubs' lineup.

      Cubs OF Chris Denorfia (hamstring) to be placed on DL

      Cubs outfielder Chris Denorfia will head to the disabled list due to a hamstring injury, according to "It's not optimal," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said of Denorfia's condition. "He repulled the same hammy." Denorfia went 2 for 2 with an RBI in Tuesday's 10-9 loss to the Cardinals. He now has a slash line of .429/.455/.476. He was taken out of the game in the third inning and was replaced by Junior Lake. "It's very frustrating," Denorfia said. "I've never had a recurring muscle injury like this before.

The Cubs are expected to call up Matt Szczur to fill the open roster spot with Denorfia heading to the DL.
