#Cubs add Schlitter; Lake to Iowa

The Cubs recalled right-handed pitcher Brian Schlitter from Triple-A Iowa and optioned outfielder Junior Lake to Triple-A. Schlitter will be available Sunday night.

This is Schlitter’s third stint with the Cubs this year. He was 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA (6 ER/6.2 IP) in nine appearances so far. In 14 relief appearances at Iowa, he’s 2-0 with five saves and a 1.13 ERA (2 ER/16.0 IP).

Lake, 25, is batting .224 (13-for-58) with four doubles, one home run and five RBI in 21 games with the Cubs this season.

Junior warranted this demotion. He does not `get it,` and doubt he ever will. He`s had multiple opportunities to `prove himself,` and has failed the test. Junior can resist everything but temptation, if you like. Junior can`t resist flailing at pitches outside the zone. He continues to do that `ad infinitum` and it gets old. I`m done with Junior. He`s unwilling to modify his approach, and that`s the definition of `cluelessness` in my book. Have a good life, Junior!

Aloha jhosk- I had hoped for better from Lake and understand why he was demoted too. I think in the not too long distance this team will have a starting 3 in the outfield and it will be hard for any one to crack it once it is set, thus I think Lake is out as you surmise. Thank you for all the updates regarding the College WS; it is neat to see many of the future mlb players in the tournament. I also hope that Wada-san is able to work out his issues and give 6innings if possible this coming week. Take care now. Mahalo!

Yes, k.g. Is unfortunate the Cal State Fullerton game vs. Vandy was suspended last night in the sixth, as Thomas Eshelman was magnificent to that point in shutting down the Commodores. He was outpitching Fulmur. Fullerton was ahead 3-0. The Florida team is an offensive juggernaut and am very concerned if the Cavaliers can stay with them. Florida breezed against Florida State in the Super Regional running up lopsided scores in the process. I`m wanting Wada to excel this week also after is recent stumbles.

Make that Fulmer.
