Speaking from the standpoint of the Cubs' farm system, there has never been a complete or "official" list of injured players at the minor league level made available either to the media or to the public all in one place, and I doubt any club releases such a list, either, and wisely so.
This is done for several reasons.
The biggest is that by releasing every non-major injury a player might have, a club could inadvertently take away the value of that player in potential trade discussions with opposing teams some day down the road.
In all fairness, players who are injured for the most part show little to no hesitance whenever they are asked about various setbacks; nor does the Cubs' front office when asked to give updates on such players.
Another problem with keeping an "official" list of injuries throughout a farm system is that there are much more players to keep track of than, say, a football or basketball depth chart or even a major league roster.
All of that aside, the following is a list of several injuries in the Cubs' farm system this season – unofficial as it is, of course.
Moore, who has played third base, first, short and the outfield at Iowa this season, has been sidelined for three weeks to date with what a spokesperson in the Cubs' Media Relations Office said was a foot injury.
Moore is still with the team and could return before the end of the season, the spokesperson said. In 91 games with Iowa, the left-handed hitting Moore batted .265 with 16 home runs, 18 doubles and 61 RBIs.
In 82 games with Iowa, Hoffpauir had perhaps his best season to date, batting .319 with 16 home runs, 24 doubles and 73 RBIs.
Daytona (Class High A)
The right-hander was the Cubs' 26th-round draft pick from Cal a year ago, appearing in 19 games in relief and recording nine saves while notching a 1.23 ERA in 22 innings with Class Low-A Boise in 2006.
The 6-foot-7, 250-pound southpaw was 7-10 with a 2.99 ERA a season ago at Double-A West Tennessee, securing Southern League All-Star honors.
Dolis (Doh-leese), one of the Cubs' free agent signings from the Dominican Republic in 2004, last pitched in Peoria on May 7. The 19-year-old was 3-1 with a 1.80 ERA in six starts with the team, striking out 24 in 30 innings.
Muldowney, the Cubs' eighth-round draft pick from Pittsburgh in 2006, also made six starts with Peoria before being sent to Extended Spring Training with elbow discomfort. He made two starts with the Mesa Cubs in the Arizona Rookie League in mid-June before being shut down.
"Muldowney is a little different," Cubs Farm Director Oneri Fleita said. "They had to move the nerve over. It was in a spot where it was nagging him and they just kind of readjusted the nerve. So his was much more minor."

The outfielder batted .406 in eight games with Daytona after coming up from Extended Spring Training. He had undergone off-season shoulder surgery.
