Extra bases


• Shawn Camp, on the disabled list since May 22 with a sprained right big toe, will throw his first bullpen this week when the Cubs are in Anaheim. Whether the right-hander will be ready when the 15 days are up is to be determined.

"We'll see how the rehab goes and how he's feeling, and the shape of the pitchers [in the bullpen] as well," Sveum said.

Catcher Steve Clevenger, on the 60-day disabled list since April 14 with a strained left oblique, will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Monday.

The Cubs have yet to announce a date for when Kyuji Fujikawa will undergo Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. Fujikawa was placed on the disabled list May 27.

• Top prospect Javier Baez was 5-for-6 with three doubles, a home run and six RBIs in Class A Daytona's 14-5 win over Brevard County. McLeod said there has been no discussions about promoting Baez or another top prospect, Jorge Soler. Baez was batting .277 while Soler, who hit his eighth home run on Saturday, was batting .295.

"We haven't had those conversations yet," McLeod said Sunday. "We'll let them force us to have those conversations."

• The Cubs are happy with their new affiliation this year with Kane County. The team moved its low Class A team from Peoria to Kane County.

"It's working out great," McLeod said. "When they've had their day games [at home], we've had the opportunity to go down and watch the 11 a.m. game, and be back in the office at 2:30. It's been nice and I think they've enjoyed the affiliation with us."

Baez and Soler get most of the attention, but McLeod said he's been impressed by first baseman Dustin Geiger, who was batting .311 and recorded his fifth multi-hit game in his last 10 on Saturday.

"He's been really steady under the radar and he probably gets lost in Baez, Soler being in the lineup there," McLeod said. "He's a kid who had a tremendous month this past month. He's young, too, for that league. He's done very well."
