Cubs to call up shortstop Castro

Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune reports the Cubs are calling up shortstop Starlin Castro and plan on inserting him into the lineup immediately.

The 20-year-old is hitting .376 with one homer, 14 extra-base hits and 20 RBI in 26 games with Double-A Tennessee.

Reports claim manager Lou Piniella plans to start Castro at short, move Ryan Theriot to second base and send Chad Tracy to the minors.

Piniella to shake up Cubs lineup

Dave van Dyck of the Chicago Tribune reports Cubs manager Lou Piniella plans to shake up the lineup.

Against lefties, look for Marlon Byrd to lead off, Jeff Baker to bat second, Xavier Nady to hit fourth and Geovany Soto and Ryan Theriot to bat before the pitcher.

"We're going to change this lineup around and see if we can spur the offense a little bit," Piniella said after the Cubs dropped Sunday's game to Astros.
