Cubs recall RHP Brian Schlitter, demote OF Matt Szczur
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(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 OF Chris Coghlan sits again with lefty on the mound Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/15/15) Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game on Friday. Coghlan, who bats from the left side, has been shielded against left-handed starters this year, as he is 0 for 5 against southpaws.
So, with a lefty on the mound for the Pirates, manager Joe Maddon is keeping Coghlan on the bench. Matt Szczur, who went 1 for 3 with an RBI on Thursday, will draw the start for the second game in a row, starting in left field and batting seventh.

|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) 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.
