7/30/2014 Shae Simmons, P (Atl) The Braves placed Simmons on the disabled list Tuesday, retroactive to July 27, with a right shoulder strain.

Ramirez has pitched 28 innings in relief this season, leading all Cubs relievers with an 0.96 ERA. The 25-year-old rookie was acquired last season in a trade that sent starting pitcher Matt Garza to the Texas Rangers.

Schultz was on the opening day roster and appeared in one game before being optioned to Triple-A Reno on March 29. He went 8-7 with a 5.75 ERA in 21 starts. Manager Kirk Gibson figured to use him in a long relief role if needed.
