CHICAGO -- Prior to Tuesday’s game , the Cubs sent outfielder Tyler Colvin back to Triple-A Iowa with Reed Johnson returning from the DL.

Johnson was hit in the face by a pitch during a minor league rehab outing in Iowa this past weekend. He was cleared to play after Major League Baseball looked at all the medicals, including a neurologist report. He was originally on the DL due to back spasms.

Here’s a look at the Cubs’ lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Brewers.


1. Kosuke Fukudome, RF
