Expect roster moves today

Jake Fox is in the house here at Wrigley. Expect him to be called up from Class AAA Iowa today. Also, expect infielder Aaron Miles to be placed on the DL with a bad shoulder that's been bothering him since spring training. There could be more. Lefty Neal Cotts, who hasn't gotten much of anybody out, could be sent to Iowa. Contrary to popular belief, Cotts has options, and the Cubs may be inclined to exercise them. We'll see what happens with that. Fox has torn it up at Iowa this year. His numbers are eye-popping: .423 batting average; 17 homers; 50 RBI; .503 OBP; .886 slugging percentage; 1.389 OPS. If they're going to bring him up, they might as well throw him in there. Back with much more later.
