Cubs place Mike Montgomery on 10-day DL with shoulder inflammation


PITTSBURGH — The Chicago Cubs were dealt a blow to their rotation as lefty Mike Montgomery was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Friday with shoulder inflammation. Montgomery, 28, was scheduled to start against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, but righty Tyler Chatwood will take his place instead.

“I felt something after my bullpen outing and honestly thought it was normal soreness,” Montgomery said Friday afternoon. “It’s frustrating, but I have to get it right. I don’t think it’s too far off. Just a little discomfort there.”
