7/11 Bowden back; Raley to Iowa

The Cubs selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Michael Bowden and optioned lefty Brooks Raley back to Triple-A Iowa on Thursday. Raley pitched 4 1/3 innings on Wednesday night, the longest outing by a Cubs reliever this season. He was the 42nd player used by the Cubs, setting a franchise record for most players used before the All-Star break. Bowden compiled a 2.41 ERA in 13 games with Iowa, striking out 28 over 18 2/3 innings. The right-hander began the season with the Cubs, and posted a 3.78 ERA over 14 games in relief.

7/8 Raley joins Cubs

The Cubs needed a fresh arm, and recalled lefty Brooks Raley from Triple-A Iowa to take the roster spot of outfielder Scott Hairston, who was traded to the Nationals earlier Monday. Raley has been a starter at Iowa, posting a 6-6 record and 4.91 ERA. He did make one relief appearance. He made his big league debut last August, and went 1-2 with a 8.14 ERA in five starts. He was called up June 12-13, but did not appear in a game.

How long will the Cubs go with an extra pitcher in the ‘pen?

“That’ll be dictated on what happens the next couple days with how long our starters go,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

The Cubs don’t have many options at Iowa to fill the outfield.

“[Junior] Lake is playing well but we want to let him develop more,” Sveum said. “There’s not a whole lot of options right now. Right now our bullpen concern is more important than anything right now.”

6/12 Putnam to DL; Raley up

The Cubs placed reliever Zach Putnam on the 15-day disabled list because of bone spur in his right elbow and recalled left-handed pitcher Brooks Raley from Triple-A Iowa.
Putnman pitched Tuesday night but told manager Dale Sveum his elbow felt it was “on fire.” He underwent an MRI on Wednesday. Putnam, 25, had given up seven earned runs over 3 1/3 innings in five appearances with the Cubs. Raley, 24, was 5-4 with a 4.92 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) with Iowa. He made his big league debut last August, and was 1-2 with an 8.14 ERA in five starts.

“Right now, obviously, our bullpen is a little short and we have some length there [with Raley] if anything happened today,” Sveum said.

Late Tuesday, the Cubs acquired reliever Henry Rodriguez from the Nationals for Minor League pitcher Ian Dickson. Rodriguez has not joined the Cubs yet.

“I don’t think he’s thrown in 10 days,” Sveum said. “We have some time to let him throw and see where we’re at in a couple days.”

Rodriguez, 26, had a 4.00 ERA in 17 relief appearances with the Nationals before he was designated for assignment on June 4.
