Alburquerque (1-2, 6.00) heads to the DL with right bicep fatigue. He took the loss on Saturday allowing four earned runs on eight hits over four innings as the Chiefs fell to the Cougars 13-3. Because of the scheduled off day on Wednesday, the DL stint will push Alburquerque back just one day and he is scheduled to start next Sunday at home against the West Michigan Whitecaps.
The Chiefs return home after the 2:00 pm Sunday game at Kane County for a season long 10-game homestand. The first two will pit the Chiefs against the Cougars Monday and Tuesday at 6:30 pm. All tickets are half-price Monday night and the first 1500 fans receive a 2007 Peoria Chiefs Calendar.
