CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs placed right-handed pitcher Carlos Zambrano on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday (retroactive to June 19) with a minor strain in his right shoulder. Infielder Eric Patterson was recalled from Triple-A Iowa.

Patterson, who wears uniform No. 4, will be available for Saturday afternoon's game against the Chicago White Sox at Wrigley Field.

Overall this season, Zambrano is 8-3 with a 3.13 ERA (37 earned runs over 106 1/3 innings pitched) in 16 starts. He departed Wednesday's start in Tampa Bay after tossing 6 2/3 innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks, striking out two. An arthrogram on Friday revealed the minor strain in his right shoulder, and he was placed on the disabled list Saturday after consulting and reviewing the results with team officials earlier in the morning.

This stint on the disabled list is the second of Zambrano's career, his first since 2002 when he missed nearly one month with a right elbow strain.

Patterson joins the Cubs for his third stint this season, as he had just returned to Iowa last Tuesday following a five-day stay with the club. The 25-year-old has batted .143 (2-for-14) with a pair of RBIs in five games with the Cubs this season. He is batting .323 (61-for-189) with 13 doubles, three triples, six home runs, 28 runs scored and 27 RBIs in 49 games with Iowa this year.
