4/26 Veras to DL

The Cubs placed right-hander Jose Veras on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to Friday, because of a left oblique strain and recalled right-hander Brian Schlitter from Triple-A Iowa. Veras said he felt something while pitching Thursday, which was his last outing. That was only his second appearance since April 11 when he blew a two-run lead against the Cardinals and lost his job as the closer. Schlitter was closing games at Iowa, and manager Rick Renteria said he may use the rookie in that role with the big league team.

If we demote Veras and another reliever does well enough in his stead that we drop in the draft, this isn’t good. To be clear. Finishing 34 games out, or 27 out, the season was still sacrificed.
Winning a few extra ballgames isn’t important. Having the v opportunity to draft the likes of Strasburg and Trout Harper beats 78-84.
This season we need to go.something like 68-94 and number one pick this year.
If we’re rebuilding, go all in on future.
