Fuld is a 25-year-old native of Durham, NH. He is in his third season of professional baseball. He was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 10th round of the 2004 draft. He was selected as a Florida State League midseason All-Star during the 2006 season while with the Daytona Cubs. Fuld will be joining the Smokies from extended spring training.
Addendum: Infielder Mike Kinkade was activated by the Iowa Cubs from the disabled list Friday. Kinkade had been rehabbing in Arizona after having his hand broken by a pitch in spring training. To make room for Kinkade, the Cubs placed catcher Mike Mahoney back on the disabled list. Right-hander Angel Guzman was previously optioned to Iowa to coincide with Felix Pie's promotion to Chicago. To make room for Guzman, the Cubs released reliever Hector Almonte on Friday. (Source: Iowa Cubs Media Relations.)
