The Chicago Cubs have purchased the contract of relief pitcher Manny Corpas from Triple-A Iowa and placed pitcher Blake Parker on the 60-day disabled list.

Corpas signed a one-year major league deal with the Cubs in December, but he sent to Iowa after the Cubs re-signed Kerry Wood.

The 29-year-old missed all of 2011 after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.

He was the Colorado Rockies closer when they reached the World Series in 2007.
