Valbuena to the DL, Logan Watkins called up

Arizona Diamondbacks v Chicago Cubs

A right oblique strain has landed Luis Valbuena on the DL, that’s the bad news, the good news is that the Cubs have called up Logan Watkins.  Many fans, including myself have been wanting the Cubs to call up Watkins for his tremendous plate discipline and ability to get on base.  Watkins will get the start at second base today for the Cubs, he doesn’t have the range or glove that Barney has but he trumps Barney at the plate, and if he is going to hit eight like Barney did then I will take a .230 average and a .340+ on base percentage.  That is something that Barney hasn’t been able to do, I hope Watkins takes this opportunity and runs with it.
