SAN DIEGO (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have placed outfielder Albert Almora Jr. on the family medical emergency list and recalled infielder David Bote from Triple-A Iowa.

The Cubs made the moves prior to Sunday’s series finale against the San Diego Padres.

Bote returns to the majors for his fourth stint this season. He hit .300 with one homer and nine RBIs in his first 19 games with the Cubs.
