Tsuyoshi Wada solid in season-debut


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) Cubs pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada was solid in his season-debut against the Reds.

Wada allowed one unearned run over five innings of work. He gave up five hits and one walk. Wada struck out three batters during the appearance. He tossed just 87 pitches before he was replaced. 

Wada was in line for the win when he left the game, but the Cubs bullpen couldn't hold the lead. He was left with a no-decision. Wada has not factored into any decisions in the majors yet this season. His next will come against the Braves should he remain in the Cubs rotation. 


Tsuyoshi Wada gets the call for doubleheader


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Cubs recalled Tsuyoshi Wada from Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, to start the second game of a doubleheader against the Reds.

Wada will likely serve as the 26th man for the doubleheader, and his role moving forward is not yet known. 


Cubs waiting another day or two to finalize rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) Following the trade of pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, Cubs manager Rick Renteria said he will likely make a decision about who replaces them in the rotation on Monday or Tuesday, per MLB.com.

For now, the rotation aligns with Edwin Jackson starting Monday at Cincinnati, and he will be followed by Travis Wood and Tsuyoshi Wada during a doubleheader Tuesday. One candidate to join the rotation is Dallas Beeler, who allowed one unearned run over six innings in his lone start for Chicago June 28 against the Nationals.

"There's nothing that says they can't come in here and perform and help us win ballgames," Renteria said of promoting pitchers from the minors. "We're really hopeful that the guys that we have within the system will be able to come in and hopefully find a sense of comfort within that clubhouse and when they go out to the hill. Obviously, there's some nervousness that comes with the new area, the new arena. But usually those guys are able to adjust and perform."


Who is worth targeting among the Cubs' rotation hopefuls?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/5/2014) Clearly, the headliners from Saturday's trade between the Cubs and Athletics were Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and both immediately become must-owns in AL-only leagues. Their departure leaves the Cubs with two big holes to fill in their rotation, and there is no shortage of candidates to fill them.

Carlos Villanueva has replaced Samardzija for his Saturday start at the Nationals, but he is not necessarily among the candidates to fill a spot long-term. Even if he were, Villanueva has not had a sterling track record as a starter (career 4.94 ERA), so he can be passed over in virtually all Fantasy formats.

Then there is Dan Straily, who was acquired from the A's as part of the return for Samardzija and Hammel. He will report to Triple-A Iowa, but according to CSNChicago.com, he could be up with the big club soon. Because of his strikeout potential, Straily is worth stashing in NL-only leagues. He has a Jake Odorizzi-like skill set -- complete with shaky control and a high flyball rate -- but without a pitcher's park like Tropicana Field (or his former home of O.co Coliseum) to come home to, there may be little respite from home runs.

A better risk than Straily is Tsuyoshi Wada, who has already been announced as Tuesday's starter at the Reds. He has similar strikeout potential to Straily but with fewer control issues and slightly less pronounced flyball tendencies. He is worth pursuing in some deeper mixed leagues, as well as in NL-only formats.

Chris Rusin, just called up for bullpen duty, Dallas Beeler and Kyle Hendricks will also be in the mix, according to ESPN.com, but none has appeal outside of deeper NL-only leagues. With so much competition for two open spots, none of those three are really worth the trouble of expending FAAB dollars or a waiver priority.


Tsuyoshi Wada to get the nod Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) The Cubs have tabbed Tsuyoshi Wada as the team's starting pitcher Tuesday.

The club was reportedly deciding between two pitchers for the start. It's unclear if Wada will be a consistent member of the rotation moving forward, or if this is just a spot start while the team figures out the rotation moving forward. Wada will take on the Reds. 


Cubs considering two Iowa pitchers for Tuesday start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/4/2014) Triple-A Iowa left-hander Tsuyoshi Wada and righty Dallas Beeler are receiving consideration to be promoted by the Cubs for the nightcap of the Tuesday doubleheader against Cincinnati.

Beeler has a bit of a track record after pitching six shutout innings in his only major league start this season. Wada has also been impressiving, posting a 9-5 record and 2.66 ERA at the Triple-A level with 105 strikeouts in 101 2/3 innings.

Tsuyoshi Wada still in the mix for rotation spot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
