CHICAGO -- The Cubs placed reliever Pedro Strop on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a moderate left groin strain and recalled lefty Zac Rosscup from Triple-A Iowa.

Strop was pulled from Tuesday's game after facing five batters. He apparently injured his leg a few days ago while working out, but said he was ready to pitch. Cubs manager Rick Renteria said Strop was available.

"I didn't think [his leg] was an issue, quite frankly," Renteria said. "He'd been working and did fine in his flat ground. All indications were that he was fine."

Rosscup, 25, begins his third stint with the Cubs this season having thrown 2 2/3 scoreless innings in two relief appearances so far. He was the 26th man in the second game of a doubleheader on April 16 at Yankee Stadium. He was recalled once more on April 24, and threw a scoreless inning on April 29 in Cincinnati before he was optioned to Iowa on May 3.
