CHICAGO -- With rosters set to expand Saturday, the Chicago Cubs have decided on who is coming up to the big team.

One move was already made Friday when left-handed reliever Jeff Beliveau was called up to replace Brooks Raley, who is being shut down for the year after reaching his personal 150-innings limit.

Three moves are scheduled for Saturday with Tony Campana, Adrian Cardenas and Dave Sappelt all coming up to the major leagues.

In other roster additions, pitcher Miguel Socolovich will be called up Sunday and pitcher Chris Rusin and catcher Anthony Recker will be added Tuesday.

Socolovich and Recker were both claimed off waivers recently and optioned to Triple-A and can’t come up for 10 days after they were originally assigned to a club. Rusin will be added to the rotation to take over the spot Raley had occupied.
