#Cubs to add Ramirez on Sunday

The Cubs’ bullpen will get some help on Sunday when reliever Neil Ramirez joins the club.

Ramirez has been on the disabled list since April 16 because of right shoulder inflammation. He made three rehab appearances — two for Double-A Tennessee and pitched one inning for Triple-A Iowa. In the three games, he gave up one hit over 2 2/3 innings while striking out four.

Last season, Ramirez, 26, appeared in 50 games and compiled a 1.44 ERA. He was expected to be a key piece of the bullpen but was sidelined with the shoulder injury after five April outings.

No corresponding roster move was announced Saturday night.
