#Cubs to add Baez, Berry & more today
The Cubs will call up four players from Triple-A Iowa on Tuesday when rosters expand, including Javier Baez, Quintin Berry, Trevor Cahill and Tsuyoshi Wada. New outfielder Austin Jackson also was expected to be at Wrigley Field in time for the game against the Reds.
Neither Cahill nor Berry are on the Cubs’ 40-man roster, so they must make room on Tuesday.
Cahill, 27, has pitched for the Athletics and Braves, and was 0-3 in 15 games, including three starts, with Atlanta this
season. The right-hander appeared in five games with Triple-A Iowa, and gave up five hits and walked three over 7 2/3
scoreless innings. At the Dodgers’ Triple-A Oklahoma City team this year, he was 1-3 with a 6.28 ERA in six starts, walking
14 and giving up 32 hits over 28 2/3 innings.
A left-handed hitter, Berry, 30, hit .228 in 106 games at Triple-A Pawtucket with 35 stolen bases, and in five games at
Iowa, was 2-for-14.
Wada, 34, was 4-5 with a 3.95 ERA in 16 starts at Iowa, striking out 62 over 86 2/3 innings. The lefty made seven starts with the Cubs, and was 1-1 with a 3.73 ERA in those games, which included seven shutout innings on June 17 against the Indians.
Baez, 22, batted .324 in 70 games at Iowa with 13 home runs, 14 doubles, two triples and 61 RBIs. He struck out 76 times,
and drew 21 walks.
