7/10 Roster moves
The Cubs optioned Dallas Beeler to Triple-A Iowa to make room on the 25-man roster for right-handed pitcher Kyle Hendricks, who will make his Major League debut on Thursday against the Reds. Beeler made his second big league start on Wednesday and took the loss, giving up four runs over five innings. Jake Arrieta, Travis Wood and Edwin Jackson will pitch the final three games before the All-Star break, and then the Cubs will decide what to do to fill the rotation spots created by the Jeff Samardzija/Jason Hammel trade to the A’s.
