From the Cubs Media Department comes information on the DL trip for Rammy:

MILWAUKEE – The Chicago Cubs today recalled infielder Chad Tracy from Triple-A Iowa and placed infielder Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to June 8) with a left thumb contusion.

Tracy, 30, has batted .396 (36-for-91) with 21 runs, eight doubles, five home runs and 18 RBI in 26 games with Iowa since joining the team, May 6. The left-handed hitter posted a .422 batting average (27-for-64) against right-handed hurlers, and a .333 (9-for-27) mark against southpaws. He batted .421 (8-for-19) with runners in scoring position, including a .571 mark (4-for-7) with runners in scoring position and two outs.

In his last four games for the I-Cubs, Tracy went 7-for-13 (.538) with six runs, two doubles, three home runs and seven RBI, including a 4-for-4, two-homer game last night vs. New Orleans. That stretch contributed to a 1.075 OPS (.427 on-base percentage and a .648 slugging percentage) with Iowa.

Tracy signed a minor league contract with Chicago this past January and was an invitee to major league spring before breaking camp with the Cubs. He batted .273 (6-for-22) with a double and two RBI in 19 games for Chicago before he was optioned to Triple-A.

In all or part of seven big league seasons with Arizona (2004-09) and Chicago (2010), Tracy owns a .280 career batting average (660-for-2,360) with 78 homers and 320 RBI in 723 contests.

Ramirez, 31, has appeared in 47 games for the Cubs, batting .168 (30-for-179) with six doubles, five home runs and 22 RBI.
