Cubs RP Pedro Strop turns victory into defeat Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2015) Pedro Strop was forced to close Wednesday for the Cubs after Jason Motte was used in both ends of the Tuesday doubleheader.

Instead of closing, Strop opened the door for the Cardinals to win and they bashed their way right in.

He entered with a 6-5 lead in the ninth and promptly retired the first two batters. But he walked Matt Carpenter and surrendered a home run to Jhonny Peralta to disappoint the Wrigley Field fans.

Strop had yielded just one run in his previous 15 2/3 innings pitched.


Jason Motte save Sunday throws Cubs closer role into question


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2015) Joe Maddon declared Saturday that his removal of closer Hector Rondon from a save situation did not signal his loss of that role.

Well, Rondon did not come out to pitch the ninth for the Cubs on Sunday - he had already thrown a scoreless eighth. Jason Motte earned the save instead.

Since Pedro Strop finished the game Saturday, it remains to be seen which one of those three is now the closer or if Maddon is opting for a by-committee approach.

Motte, who won in relief Saturday and peaked in 2012 with 42 saves for St. Louis, pitched a 1-2-3 ninth Sunday. He has not allowed a run in his last nine appearances.


Hector Rondon still Cubs closer despite getting pulled Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Joe Maddon has quelled any closer controversy brewing with the Cubs.

Maddon called on Pedro Strop in the ninth inning Saturday to shut down the Nationals after usual closer Hector Rondon walked Anthony Rendon upon entering. But he announced after the game that it was a one-time deal.

"For me, it was about winning the game today," he told the Chicago Tribune. "I am not ordaining anyone new."

Rondon has converted 10 of 13 save opportunities this season. But he has allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks in his last 7 1/3 innings. The free passes were issued in his last two appearances.

Strop, who fanned Clint Robinson and Ian Desmond to snag his second save, had been shaky as well before recording four consective scoreless outings.
