Alfonso SorianoThe Cubs' Alfonso Soriano is back with the Cubs and the team has placed Darwin Barney on the DL with sprained left knee and activated Soriano, the team announced.

Soriano was on the disabled list with a left quad strain. He went 1 for 13 in three games with Triple-A Iowa.

According to Muskat, Soriano was at Wrigley Field and headed to take batting practice. Soriano was placed on the DL on May 31, but at the time said he didn't think he'd need the full time to get healthy. Playing the last three nights makes it clear he was right.

Soriano was hitting .271/.297/.525 with 12 home runs when he went on the DL.

The rookie Barney has been one of the Cubs' best players this season, hitting .294/.321/.359.

With Soriano back, I'd still like to see DeWitt in the lineup, at least against right handers.  Perhaps a platoon of DeWitt and Baker at 2nd base while Barney's out?

Well, his 1 for 13 stint  in triple A proves that he is back to game shape!  Hopefully he misplayed some balls in the outfield too in order to be 100% ready to bury the Cubs even further once he re-enters the lineup.......Let's hope Mr. Barney gets his butt healed in a hurry!
