(CBS) In anticipation of tonight’s game against the Rangers, the Cubs have selected the contract of outfielder Ryan Sweeney and recalled right-handed pitcher Rafael Dolis from Triple-A Iowa.

In corresponding roster moves, right-handed pitcher Kameron Loe has been designated for assignment and outfielder Dave Sappelt has been optioned to Triple-A.

The 28-year-old Sweeney has a career batting average of .280 (481-for-1,719) with 102 doubles, 12 triples, 14 home runs and 185 RBI in 535 games covering all or part of seven big league seasons.

Sweeney went to spring training with the Red Sox this year but was released on March 30.

Dolis, 25, has one save and a 3.52 ERA (3 ER/7.2 IP) in eight relief appearances with Iowa this season.
