Breaking News: B.J. Ryan requested and was granted his release today by the Chicago Cubs. Ryan felt "his velocity and sharpness would not get there"
Update 4:00: The Cubs activate Aaron Miles from the 15 day DL and sent down P Jeff Stevens to Triple A. Dumb move it should of been Samardzija matter what, that should of been the easiest move this year.
The Cubs are expected to make another roster move today by activating IF Aaron Miles. The Tribune is reporting the Cubs are going to send down OF Sam Fuld.
That makes no sense when you have 13 pitchers and Samardzida who cant throw strikes.
Yesterday the Cubs placed IF Andres Blanco on the 15 day DL with a left calf strain and activated new Cub Tom Gorzolanny.
Jon Heyman reported a couple days ago the Cubs might put a clam out for utility man Mark Teahen.
Soto catch and batted third for Double A:
First at-bat: Soto strikes out swinging.
Second at-bat: Soto Grounds out to the shortstop.
Third at-bat: Soto Homers on a flyball to LF.
BJ Ryan pitched 1 inning for Iowa Cubs giving up 1 walk and striking out 1. Ryan still has not given up a run.
I will keep you posted.
