Alfonso Soriano will be placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday and Tyler Colvin added to the active roster. Colvin was hitting in the batting cage at Wrigley Field with Rudy Jaramillo early Tuesday. Soriano has a strained left groin, suffered Monday in the first inning. He was not expected to need the full 15-days but the Cubs don’t want to be shorthanded. Colvin began the year with the big league team but was sent down to Iowa after batting .113 in 28 games. He was hitting .260 in 12 games with five doubles, two triples and one home run at Triple-A Iowa.
