The Chicago Cubs just placed reliever Esmailin Caridad on the 15-day
disabled list with elbow problems (ruh roh), and recalled AAA reliever
Interesting that Stevens, 26, got the call over other AAA bullpen
options including John Gaub, Jeff Gray, Blake Parker, Jay Jackson, and
some guy named Samardzija. Stevens has a 2.60 ERA on the year, with 21

hits in those 17 innings, so it has all been blueberries and sunshine.
