Kelton to get the Call

It looks like David Kelton will be call up for Choi. Paul Sullivan writes:

With first baseman Hee Seop Choi expected to miss up to 10 days with a concussion from his collision with Kerry Wood, the Cubs likely will recall David Kelton from Triple-A Iowa to take his place on the roster.

The article goes and says that Kelton will be used as a DH. So if Sosa is out, then the Cubs will look something like this.

1B-Eric Karros
2B-Mark Grudzielanek
SS-Alex Gonzalez
3B-Lenny Harris, Mark Bellhorn or Ramon Martinez
C- Damian Miller
RF-Moises Alou
CF-Corey Patterson
RF-Troy O'Leary or Tom Goodwin
DH-David Kelton

It really looks like that Todd Hundley trade is paying off. I was starting to think that it might be Bobby Hill called up and Mark would move to 3B, but maybe Hill is close to being traded. If the Cubs can grab Mike Lowell, then this would be a great time. Of course now, a roster move would have to take place, but logic would say Bellhorn or Harris would go if that took place.
