CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs have placed closer Brandon Morrow on the 10-day disabled list because of lower back tightness.

The Cubs announced the move prior to Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Right-hander Justin Hancock will remain with the club after being called up from Triple-A Iowa as the 26th man for Tuesday's day-night doubleheader.

Signed by the Cubs after helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat them in the NLCS last season, Morrow has 16 saves in 17 chances.
