There will be a Patterson in the outfield at Wrigely again now that Corey's younger brother, Eric, has been called up to the Cubs to replace Alfonso Soriano, who was placed on the disabled list.
Patterson was batting .299 at Triple-A Iowa with 14 homers, 23 doubles, 62 RBIs and 16 stolen bases. He has primarily hit leadoff all season, batting .300 in the No. 1 spot in the order with a .365 on-base percentage.
Patterson, 24, began the season as a second baseman, but has played the past 10 games in the outfield in both left and center.
He is the younger brother of former Cubs outfielder Corey Patterson, who is now with the Baltimore Orioles.
