On this day, the Cubs promoted Esteban Quiros from AAA class Iowa in a series of roster changes, and Advert Arzoray, who had been out of action since the start of the season due to a right shoulder injury, returned from the 60-day disabled list. Two players, Frank Schwindell and Sean Newcombe, became DFAs to make room on the roster.
