Geovany Soto has been activated from the DL, and Micah Hoffpauir has been sent to the minors to make room for him. Haven’t seen the line-up for tonight’s Rockies game yet, so don’t know if Soto will get the start. I assume Lou wants to get him in there as fast as possible and give Koyie Hill a break.
Be interesting to see how Lou doles out the starts between Soto and Hill from here on in. Yeah, Soto is clearly the better offensive option, but everyone knows Hill’s magic touch. The Cubs are 46-26 in the games Hill has started in his career. Wouldn’t surprise me to see close to a 50/50 split. It’s not like Geo was tearing it up before he went on the DL.
