|(5/16/15) The Cubs have recalled right-hander Brian Schlitter from Triple-A Iowa and optioned outfielder Matt Szczur to the same team.
Schlitter was sent down three weeks ago after compiling a 9.53 ERA in seven relief appearances to start the season. He recovered with six shutout performances for Iowa.
Szczur is coming off his finest game of the year, a two-hit, three-RBI performance Friday night. But he was 3-for-22 previously.
Cubs recall Junior Lake, option Brian Schlitter
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) The Cubs recalled outfielder Junior Lake and optioned pitcher Brian Schlitter to Triple-A Iowa Monday, the team announced.
Lake enjoyed a promising rookie campaign in 2013 but hit just .211/246/.351 with nine home runs, 25 RBI and seven stolen bases in 308 at-bats last season. He has delivered a .289/.340/.333 line with eight RBI and two stolen bases in 45 at-bats with Triple-A Iowa this year.
Schlitter surrendered six earned runs in 5 2/3 innings while with the Cubs.
Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson earning Joe Maddon's trust
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Cubs relief pitcher Edwin Jackson is slowly making the transition into a full-time reliever. With the adjustment to his game, manager Joe Maddon is noticing how well he's doing out of the bullpen, reports MLB.com.
"Jacks is starting to take to it," Maddon said.
Jackson has a perfect 0.00 ERA in five innings of work this season with three strikeouts and no walks. Maddon noted he hasn't used Jackson anymore than he normally would have and it has nothing to do with the struggles of Brian Schlitter and Jason Motte.
"I'm not saying you're not going to see Schlitter or Motte," Maddon said. "You always kind of like when it first starts out, you play it like it was first drawn up and don't try to make too many adjustments too soon until you need to try something differently. More than anything, I think Jackson has earned the right or opportunity to pitch in more opportune moments or more difficult moments for him."
