5/30 Cashner update
Andrew Cashner will join the Cubs this week but not Monday in Pittsburgh. Lou Piniella was correct in saying Cashner will get called up this week but no date has been set. The Cubs’ 2008 No. 1 Draft pick has made two relief appearances for Triple-A Iowa and Piniella wants another right-hander to balance out the ‘pen makeup. With Tom Gorzelanny shifting from the rotation to the ‘pen, the Cubs will have four lefties in Gorzelanny, John Grabow, Sean Marshall and James Russell.
