CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs have placed struggling right-hander Edwin Jackson on the 15-day disabled list with a lat strain, and they have also put shortstop Starlin Castro on the bereavement list.

The moves were made Thursday, a day after Castro left the team because of a family emergency. Bereavement leave rules require that Castro must be out for three days and can miss a maximum of one week.

Jackson lasted only 2 2-3 innings Wednesday, allowing seven earned runs. He is 6-14 this season with a 6.09 ERA.

To fill their places, the Cubs called up left-hander Zac Rosscup and infielder Logan Watkins from Triple-A Iowa.
