The Cubs put third baseman Aramis Ramirez on the disabled list today, hoping some time off will allow his bruised left thumb to heal. The thumb has been bothering Ramirez -- who is batting just .168 -- for much of the season. He had sat out the past two games.
Taking his spot on the roster is infielder Chad Tracy, recalled from Triple-A Iowa. Tracy was with the Cubs early in the season and optioned out May 7. Since then he's been on a tear for Iowa, batting .396 in 26 games.
