(9/19/14) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada worked through a sore hamstring in a no-decision Thursday night at home against the Dodgers, per ESPN Chicago. He allowed one run on five hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings of an 8-4 defeat.
Over his last four starts covering 18 2/3 innings, Wada has allowed 10 earned runs. He confirmed after the game that this was his final start of the season. He finishes his first big-league season 4-3 with a 3.22 ERA over 12 starts.
|Tsuyoshi Wada can't go five innings Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/12/14) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada couldn’t make it five innings Friday against the Pirates.
Wada allowed four runs on nine hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out two and walked two during the outing. Wada tossed a scoreless inning to begin the game, but couldn’t keep the Pirates off the board over the next couple of innings. He gave up a run in each of his next four innings. Three of those runs scored on singles. The fourth came after Wada left the game. He was pulled after giving up a triple. That run would score on a sac fly, and be charged to Wada.
With the loss, Wada dropped to 4-3. He’ll take on the Dodgers in his next start.

(9/12/14) As expected, Cubs impressive left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada is ready to roll into his Friday night start at Pittsburgh. He had been considered a bit of a question mark with a calf injury that forced him out of his previous outing.
Wada had yielded just 11 earned runs in 42 2/3 innings before his abbreviated start. He is 4-2 with a 2.95 ERA on the year.
|Tsuyoshi Wada not expected to miss start |

(9/6/14) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada is not expected to miss his next scheduled start Sept. 12 after coming out of Friday's game with a calf injury, MLB.com reports.
Wada pitched just 3 1/3 innings Friday before suffering cramping in his calf. He owns a 2.95 ERA and 46:15 K:BB ratio in 55 innings.
|Tsuyoshi Wada made a minor splash in 2011, when he signed a deal with Baltimore; Wada had amassed 107 wins over nine seasons in Japan, compiling a 3.13 ERA and 1.15 WHIP, striking out nearly a batter per inning. But Wada had Tommy John surgery before he even got a chance to pitch for the Orioles, and was scooped up by the Cubs in the offseason. Now 33, Wada is coming off a lackluster 19-game stint in the minors last year (4.03 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, 80 strikeouts in 102 2/3innings), but it was his first season back from the surgery, and he didn't even pitch until mid-May. With a full offseason behind him, and plenty of skill left, Wada could be an interesting NL-only sleeper. There's risk here, but enough upside to make a late-round selection worth the gamble.
