The Cubs recalled left-handed pitcher Chris Rusin, right-handed pitchers Jaye Chapman and Rafael Dolis, and catcher Anthony Recker from Double-A Tennessee. All four players were available in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday. All four players were with Triple-A Iowa before moving to Tennessee after Iowa’s season ended prematurely because games were cancelled by Hurricane Isaac.
* Rusin, 25, returns to the Cubs after making his Major League debut Aug. 21 in Milwaukee. He took the loss even though he held the Brewers to one run on one hit and two walks over five innings. A fourth-round pick in 2009, Rusin was to start Tuesday against the Nationals.
* Chapman, 25, joins the first Major League roster of his pro career. He was acquired from Atlanta with right-handed pitcher Arodys Vizcaino for Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson on July 30. Overall this season, Chapman combined to go 3-8 with seven saves and a 4.02 ERA in 50 relief appearances between Atlanta’s Triple-A Gwinnett affiliate, Iowa and Tennessee.
* Dolis, 24, returns to the Cubs for his third big league stint this season. A member of the Opening Day roster, Dolis was with the club through May 28 and from June 27-July 22, combining to go 2-4 with four saves and a 6.44 ERA in 27 relief appearances. With Iowa, he had a 2.51 ERA in 13 relief appearances, and was on the disabled list from July 27-Aug. 28 because of a strained left knee.
* Recker, 29, was acquired from Oakland on Aug. 27 for catcher Blake Lalli. Recker was a member of the A’s 2012 Opening Day roster but was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on May 27, where he was hitting .265 with seven doubles, nine home runs, 29 RBIs, a .358 on-base percentage and a .793 OPS before being designated for assignment on Aug. 20. In parts of two Major League seasons, Recker has batted .146 (7-for-48) in 18 games.
