KODAK, Tenn. – The Tennessee Smokies, Class AA minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, announce today that OF Jae-Hoon Ha has been activated from the disabled list in advance of tonight’s series opener against the Huntsville Stars at Smokies Park. Ha will bat third and play centerfield for the Smokies in tonight’s 7:15 game.
Tennessee’s roster is at 25 active players, which is the Southern League maximum.
Ha, 21, was batting .266 (99-for-372) with 21 doubles, two triples, four home runs and 33 RBIs before being placed on the DL on July 27. The Heweongu, South Korea native was selected to the World Team roster in the XM Satellite Radio All-Star Futures Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo, last month. Ha was signed by the Cubs as a non-drafted free agent in June 2009.
