Apparently the Chicago Cubs will call up Jeff Samardzija tomorrow to help the ailing bullpen. The question, of course, is who is going to be gone?

Neal Cotts is in no danger of being optioned, and Hendry said Sean Marshall will remain in the rotation. This could mean Luis Vizcaino is in danger of being released. Hardball.

I’m not 100% convinced that Cotts couldn’t be on the way out, but whatever, I don’t get paid to do this.

As we said earlier, don’t be shocked if Samardzija gets plugged right into the rotation and Sean Marshall gets moved to the bullpen.

Edit: Son of a crapper. Seems I missed a bit of the boat. Will give a full run-down tomorrow, but no, it definitely won’t be Cotts on the way out. So much for my pontificating.
