Tankless: Cubs put Frank Schwindel on IL, recall Rivas

The back tightness that forced Frank Schwindel from Friday's game in the second inning landed The Tank on the Cubs' injured list Saturday. The Cubs called the injury a lower back strain, and manager David Ross compared it to the issue Schwindel had in spring training that cost him three days of rest before ramping up baseball activities again.
