Cubs add Germen, option Szczur, transfer Turner to 60-day DL

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:27 pm ET) The Cubs selected the contract of pitcher Gonzalez Germen and optioned outfielder Matt Szczur to Triple-A Iowa Sunday.

Germen made 25 appearances with the Cubs last season, posting a 4.75 ERA and 31:14 K:BB ratio in 30 1/3 innings. He tossed 4 2/3 hitless innings in Triple-A before being brought up but issued three walks while striking out five.

Szczur went 2 for 10 with three walks and two stolen bases before being optioned.

To clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Germen, the Cubs also transferred pitcher Jacob Turner to the 60-day disabled list. He's recovering from a flexor strain and bone bruise in his elbow.

Cubs OF Matt Szczur draws first start in 2015

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/15) Cubs rookie outfielder Matt Szczur drew his first start of the season Friday against the Rockies. He started in left field and hit sixth against Rockies left-hander Tyler Matzek.

Chris Coghlan had started the first two games in left field for Chicago. Szczur, who is hitless in one at-bat this season, hit .354 with two doubles, two triples, five home runs, nine RBI and 12 runs in 22 games during spring training.

Jonathan Herrera, Matt Szczur make Cubs Opening Day roster

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/5/15) The Cubs selected the contract of infielder Jonathan Herrera Sunday, awarding him a spot on the team's Opening Day roster. Matt Szczur has also made the team as a reserve outfielder.

Herrera hit .293/.341/.317 in 41 spring at-bats to earn a roster spot. Szczur hit .354/.426/.792 with five home runs, nine RBI and three stolen bases in 48 spring at-bats.

Outfielder Ryan Sweeney was designated for assignment Sunday to clear a 40-man roster spot for Herrera.

Cubs' Matt Szczur impresses Joe Maddon

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/15/15) On Sunday, Cubs manager Joe Maddon praised the work of outfielder Matt Szczur, who is 8 of 21 with three home runs this spring, MLB.com reports.

"What a great kid," Maddon said. "He plays the game properly. Could you get more eager? I don't think so. And now he's hitting balls out of sight. Great baserunner with great speed. Throws well, outstanding outfielder and on and on."

Maddon is listed as the No. 2 option in left field and the No. 4 option in center field on the team's depth chart but is seeing plenty of action this spring.

"What's been good for me is I'm playing every day," Szczur said. "However many games we've had, I've played every day, whether it's coming in off the bench or getting a start. So that's been good for me, getting one or two ABs a day or three or four. It's been good to see live pitching and get to attack it every day. I can just honestly control what I can control and play as best as I can. I'll fit in somewhere. No matter what it is I'll fight and come up and be able to play any sort of role."
