8/16 Szczur expected to get call up
The Cubs would not confirm it, but outfielder Matt Szczur was expected to get called up to the big league team on Sunday. Dan Straily was added to the 25-man roster on Saturday to start, and Junior Lake was optioned to Iowa. But Straily was expected to return to the Minor League team after his spot start. The Cubs are short-handed on the bench.
