The Chicago Cubs today placed first baseman Derrek Lee on the 15-day disabled list with post-traumatic inflammation of his right wrist. In a corresponding roster move, Chicago has recalled infielder Ryan Theriot from Triple-A Iowa.

Lee was originally on the 15-day disabled list from April 21-June 25 after he fractured the distal radius and distal ulna bones in his right wrist in a collision with the Dodgers' Rafael Furcal on April 19 in Los Angeles.

The 30 year old batted .227 (17-for-75) with four doubles, a home run, 11 walks and four RBI in 20 games since his return from the disabled list. Lee is batting .261 (31-for-119) with four home runs and 14 RBI in 34 games this season.

Theriot, 26, will begin his third stint with the Cubs this season. He has batted .154 (2-for-13) with a double, triple and three runs in nine games for Chicago. The Cubs' third round selection in the 2001 First-Year Player Draft has a .304 batting average (85-for-280) with 11 doubles, five triples and 22 RBI in 73 games for Iowa this season.
