Cubs cut Frazier, put Stroman on IL; Miley hurt again


AP Baseball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — Outfielder Clint Frazier was designated for assignment in a surprise decision by the Chicago Cubs, who also placed pitcher Marcus Stroman on the 15-day injured list with right shoulder inflammation as part of a flurry of roster moves Friday. Wade Miley was activated from the IL to start the opener of a three-game series against the major league-leading New York Yankees, but the left-hander exited early with soreness in the same shoulder that had sidelined him. Chicago also reinstated catcher Yan Gomes and infielder Jonathan Villar from the 10-day injured list. Michael Rucker and Alfonso Rivas were optioned to Iowa.
