News
The Cubs placed shortstop Starlin Castro on the bereavement list Thursday, putting him away from the team for a minimum of three days. It is not known how long he is expected to be out, though he cannot be on the list for longer than seven days.  
Tsuyoshi Wada, #67

News
Cubs pitchr Tsuyoshi Wada gave up six hits in five scoreless innings while striking out three Tuesday before his team's game against the Giants went into a long delay in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The rain came down for about 15 minutes at Wrigley Field, but the grounds crew was unable to bring the tarp in before the field got soaked. That led to a massive delay that extended after the rain stopped as the grounds crew tried to get the field in a playable condition. If Wada's line stands, he'll own a 2.75 ERA and 33:10 K:BB ratio in 39 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to pitch again Sunday against the Orioles.

News
Cubs pitcher Felix Doubront is set to make his final rehab appearance for Double-A Tennessee Sunday, the Chicago Tribune reports.

News
Cubs pitcher Jacob Turner tossed two innings Thursday against the Cubs, allowing one run on three hits, and MLB.com reports his next outing could come as a starter.

Turner is a candidate to start in Edwin Jackson's spot in the rotation Tuesday, after Jackson was placed on the disabled list this week. Turner has not started since early August when the Cubs acquired him, but he told MLB.com he would be ready if called on.

"Definitely," he said. "I was starting at the beginning of the month. I don't think I'd have any problem going five, and depending on how stressful the innings were, getting back up and down wouldn't be a problem."

Turner has made 12 of his 22 appearances this season as a starter, carrying a 5.77 ERA in 82 2/3 innings overall.

News
Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta dominated his former team Friday, in a 4-1 win over the Orioles.

Arrieta allowed just one run in seven innings of work, on a seventh inning solo home run by Nelson Cruz. That late blemish aside, the Orioles could hardly touch Arrieta, who allowed just four hits and a walk over his seven innings, while striking out five batters on 99 pitches in the win.

Arrieta brought a three-start winless streak to an end Friday, despite having allowed just two runs in his previous two outings. He has a 7-4 record and 2.53 ERA in 124 1/3 innings this season, heading into his start against the Reds Thursday.

The Cubs recalled infielder Logan Watkins and reliever Zac Rosscup from Triple-A Iowa Thursday, to take up two vacant roster spots.

Both players might be with the team briefly, as Watkins is simply taking Starlin Castro's spot whil he is on bereavement leave. Rosscup is up with the team to replace Edwin Jackson (lat), but might go back down when the team needs another starter.

The power surge of Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo continued Tuesday night - and it resulted in a rain-shortened win.

Rizzo blasted his fourth homer in eight games. His two-run shot in the first inning proved to be the only scoring. He is 4 for 6 with three runs and three RBI in the last two games to improve his stat line to .279/.378/.517.

Over his last two starts covering 11 1/3 innings, Wood has allowed seven earned runs. He owns a 4.91 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 26 starts (150 1/3 innings). He will look to bounce back Wednesday in Cincinnati.

Injuries
Lat - 15-day DL. Out until at least early September (Updated - 8/21/14)
News
Cubs pitcher Edwin Jackson was placed on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, due to a strained right lat.

Jackson was chased in the third inning of his start Wednesday after allowing eight hits and seven runs, and it appears the injury is at least part of the reason. The team had discussed moving him to a bullpen role after Wednesday's outing, but that decision will have to wait until after this injury heals. At this point, there is no timetable for his return.

Jackson has struggled mightily this season even before the injury, with his ERA ballooning to 6.09 in 26 starts.

Cubs second baseman Chris Valaika went 1 for 4 with a two-run home run in his team's 8-3 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

It was the first home run of the season for Valaika, who was shifted into the lineup once Starlin Castro was scratched to attend to a family emergency. Valaika owns a .182/.222/.273 line in 33 at-bats.
