ST. LOUIS – The Chicago Cubs today announced that infielder Ronny Cedeno has been recalled from Triple-A Iowa. In a corresponding move, infielder Scott Moore was optioned to Iowa following Sunday’s game against the Diamondbacks.

Cedeno, 24, is hitting .360 (89-for-247) with 13 doubles, 10 homers, 32 RBI and a .424 on-base percentage in 65 games with Iowa this season. He batted .446 (45-for-101) with eight homers, 20 RBI and a .509 on-base percentage in 25 games in June to earn Pacific Coast League Player of the Month honors.

Cedeno, who wears uniform No. 5, is available for tonight’s game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium beginning at 7:10 p.m. CT.
